Northern Nevada MLS Engages on National Stage

NNRMLS Director of Data Integrity panelist for annual CMLS conference


INDIANAPOLIS, IND. (Sept. 2022) — Team members and leadership for the Northern Nevada Regional Multiple Listing Service engaged with colleagues nationally at CMLS2022-Accelerate, the trade association’s annual conference. Several NNRMLS board members and select staff accompanied CEO George Pickard at the Council of Multiple Listing Services’ three-day event.


CMLX2 graduates, including NNRMLS Technical Training and Outreach Manager Chris Rock, honored on stage for their professional accomplishments at CMLS2022—Accelerate.


CMLS is an association of 227 of MLSs focused on creating an efficient, vibrant, and transparent real estate market that benefits both the real estate professional and the consumer. The annual CMLS conference gives attendees the opportunity to connect with peers and colleagues and learn more about the topics driving the real estate industry.


Director of Data Integrity Misty Burch spoke authoritatively to the nearly 1,000 attendees during a panel called “Compliance … It’s Complicated.” Burch spoke about NNRMLS’s efforts to layer technology, best practices, and incentive structures to ensure accurate and timely MLS data.

NNRMLS Engagement with CMLS

This year’s conference is not the first time NNRMLS has engaged with CMLS. Cristancho served on CMLS’s Green Section Council from 2016 through 2019; two years as co-chair. The group ultimately produced the “CMLS Green Data Best Practices Guide for the MLS.” Cristancho also served as a presenter during CMLS’s online “MLS Matters – Training Challenges and Solutions” this past July. Additionally, CMLS tapped Burch to serve as a guest panelist for its “Brings it to The Table” event this past June where she discussed navigating policy implementations, bringing light to the importance of NAR’s Clear Cooperation Policy, the NNRMLS membership portal, and the internal systems that help NNRMLS and its members strive for excellence in data accuracy.


NNRMLS also regularly promotes CMLS’ In The Know campaign, which helps to tell the story of the Multiple Listing Service in a way that enhances the MLS’s and its members’ value.


One hundred percent of NNRMLS staff is CMLX certified.
