Jeff Gregory, Chair, Board of Managers
Rebecca Jensen, President and CEO
Midwest Real Estate Data LLC serves more than 49,000 subscribers and offers solutions touching virtually every aspect of the real estate business. This success has come through careful attention to the needs of brokers in creating a platform that helped facilitate a record $43 billion in sales in 2020. For more than six years, MRED President and CEO Rebecca Jensen has worked to grow the MLS’ reach and service offerings. “I constantly listen to our brokerages,” Jensen says. “There is no better way to make sure your business syncs with those who rely on you than by making sure all channels of communication are open.”
Jensen is an MLS industry veteran who serves as board chair of the Real Estate Standards Organization and MLS Grid, a technology company focused on data delivery. She is on the board of the Broker Public Portal, which concentrates on fair display of properties in real estate searches. She has been included in the Swanepoel Power 200 and Inman News’ Most Influential Leaders in Real Estate. She has also been the recipient of an RISMedia Newsmaker award.
Jeff Gregory is beginning his fifth term as chair of Midwest Real Estate Data’s board of managers this year, a position that allows him to help oversee an MLS with a growing market presence. Gregory, owner and managing broker of Realty Executives Success in Shorewood-Yorkville, brings more than two decades of real estate experience to his MLS role. After a stint in the financial services industry, he transitioned into a career in real estate. “It seemed like a natural fit,” he says.
Gregory is a member of Mainstreet Organization of Realtors and the Three Rivers Association of Realtors, where he served as president in 2008 and won the Realtor of the Year award. He was awarded Illinois Realtors’ Presidential Medallion for Service and is a member of the National Association of Realtors RPAC Hall of Fame. He was also honored this year with the Great Lakes Region Industry Leadership Award from Realty Executives.
