Lynn Strantz, Midwest Real Estate Data’s vice president of product management, announced her retirement today. Strantz has spent 25 years in the MLS industry and 10 years with MRED, having joined the organization when Multiple Listing Service of Northern Illinois merged with MAP MLS to create MRED in 2008.
“MLSs have gone through an amazing transition from being non-technical entities to extremely high-tech platforms, and Lynn has been a crucial part of making that happen,” said MRED Chief Operating Officer Jeff Lasky. “It wouldn’t be a stretch to call her one of the founders of the modern MLS.”
Strantz played a critical role in projects like modernizing connectMLS and adding Cloud CMA services to keep MRED at the forefront of technology. One of her latest efforts was to form a partnership with Remine, the big data service that allows MRED customers access to predictive analytics.
“It’s truly been an honor to be at MRED with some of the finest professionals I’ve ever worked with,” Strantz said. “I feel blessed to have gotten the opportunity to be a part of an organization that always strives to be better.”
Chris Haran, MRED’s chief technology officer, will be taking over the duties previously held by Strantz.
