A horse is a horse of course of course…..now the famous Mr. Ed is trying his hand at real estate in Northern Illinois. This week we saw the much-anticipated merger of the MLSNI and MAP MLS – two area multiple listing services (basically big databases of real estate information). In doing so, the area brokers decided to incorporate both systems into a brand new organization. The name of the company they came up with is Midwest Real Estate Data (LLC) – or MRED for short. It’s not known whether the area brokers were thinking of the acronym when they came up with this company, but it’s definately going to be fun in the future consulting the famous MR. ED for homes.
What isn’t known is whether or not they will incorporate the horse’s voice into the program. I can see it now: logging in you’ll be welcomed, “Hello…..I’m Mr. Ed”. Or how about, doing a search would result in “No Properties Match Your Search Requirements…..Willlbuuuuurrrr”.
