The principles of Ronin
Technologies have been involved in RETS community since 2000, deploying enterprise B2B and B2C RETS solutions for brokers,
associations, and third party vendors, while also working at the behest of NAR to move the standard forward. Our work
for NAR includes reference implementations, the creation of a compliance program for clients and servers, and the development
of a domain model for real estate.
We co-authored the RETS2 Service specification, adopted
by the RETS community in August 2006. RETS2 was designed to expand the scope of RETS from listings to embrace the larger Real
Estate Transaction Lifecycle with a more robust and flexible architecture. Paula is Chair of the
RETS Compliance Workgroup, an elected position she has held since she and Bruce Toback created the RETS Compliance program
In addition to the RETS products found on our producs page, we provide many RETS-related
services. For MLS's, we have provided RETS migration, data conversion and data sharing services. RETS integration
is a popular service for MLS's, brokers and third party vendors...we can integrate RETS into the application of your choice,
using data mapping and transformation to create a middleware that moves data effortlessly across applications.
