Beardsley and Art Carter, CEO of CRMLS, will talk about the future of Zillow, real estate agents and the internet.
Speaking last year about the impact of the internet on the real estate business, Beardsley said: “Over the last few years the number of consumers who’ve gone online looking for information for everything, including real estate, has skyrocketed.”
Expanding on that at REvive, Beardsley and Carter will talk about future opportunities on the internet for real estate industry professionals.
Conferences such as REvive, Beardsley stated, keep Realtors® “up-to-date with the new technology that’s out there … gets them involved in the conversations, and make sure they walk away with the information they need to be successful.”
Beardsley has more than 20 years of high-tech experience in the real estate industry. He founded True North Technology in 1994, where he developed and deployed the first major Internet-based MLS system in the United States. True North was at the forefront of the conversion of MLS systems from proprietary telnet systems to the browser-based internet systems widely used today.
In addition, Beardsley worked with Windermere Real Estate Co., among others, to develop one of the first public real estate websites to offer the complete inventory of MLS listings to consumers.
He also served as the director of product development for the Enterprise Solutions division of GTE and Whoscalling.com, developing systems targeting the real estate, healthcare, education and automotive channels. Beardsley graduated with honors from Northwest University with degrees in history and philosophy.
