In addition to serving as vice president of MLS & Industry Relations for HomeServices of America, real estate industry veteran Jon Coile was also the 2021 chair of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) MLS Issues and Policy Committee, responsible for working with the NAR Board of Directors to implement significant changes to MLS policy last year, including requiring MLSs to allow brokers and agents to display buyer broker commissions. During RISMedia’s recent virtual event, Real Estate’s Rocking in the New Year, Coile detailed a half-dozen recent policy changes likely to affect brokerages, as well as previewed a new environment for MLS owners and users in 2022.
“We should be treating organized real estate as if it were part of the solution,” he said. “We’re all in this together.”
This year, Coile serves as the chair of NAR’s 2022 MLS Technology & Emerging Issues Advisory Board, as well as a member of NAR’s MLS Statewide Data-share Presidential Advisory Group.
A real estate broker for over 30 years, Coile was a partner in Champion Realty, a multi-office regional brokerage in Maryland, which joined HomeServices in 1999. He served as president and CEO of Champion until taking on the national role of industry relations for HomeServices of America, and the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices real estate brand, in 2019.
A regional MLS board member and chair for more than a decade, Coile has also served on the board of The Realty Alliance. He is a two-time RISMedia Real Estate Newsmaker, named in prior years as both a Futurist and an Influencer.
