Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED) President/Chief Executive Officer Rebecca Jensen is one of 150 individuals named to Inman’s Real Estate Influencers of 2017.
Jensen joined MRED as its president and CEO in March 2015. MRED provides multiple listing services to more than 8,000 real estate offices and 40,000 brokers and appraisers in the Chicago area. It provides property information about northwest Indiana, southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
She served as a board member for the Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO), including several years as board chair. RESO created the first real estate data dictionary, web API standard and compliance programs. In 2014, the National Association of REALTORS® approved a policy that required multiple listing services to adopt RESO’s standards. Prior to working at MRED, Jensen was CEO for UtahRealEstate.com for nearly eight years.
Inman publisher Brad Inman says the list of influencers includes real estate professionals with a variety of talents, opinions and personalities.
“They are not (all) cut from the same cloth, they do not speak the same language and they do not always necessarily share the same values. But they influence the industry by their work, through their followers and by expressing their opinions,” Inman says.
