Paul Wells

RE/MAX of Barrington

Paul Wells, broker/owner of RE/MAX of Barrington in Barrington, Ill., is considered a real estate thought leader for his forward-facing mindset on important industry topics, especially multiple listing services (MLSs). The 30-year industry veteran serves on the board of managers for the Broker Public Portal (BPP), a collaborative venture between brokerages and MLSs that promotes its public-facing Homesnap brand.

In 2019, Wells helped BPP leadership in reaching the mark of 1 million agents across the country who have access to the Homesnap platform, including the mobile app Homesnap Pro. Homesnap is a national home search platform powered by real-time MLS data, and it follows Fair Display Guidelines. BPP’s goal with Homesnap is to provide an industry-friendly home search alternative that provides interested leads, for free, to the listing agent or broker and that delivers accurate, real-time MLS information to home searchers. Wells played a large role in helping Homesnap reach its new height in popularity, and his campaigning included being interviewed on Chicago’s WGN Radio.
