AUSTIN, Texas – The Austin Board of REALTORS® (ABoR), one of the nation’s most progressive Multiple Listing Services (MLSs), announced that Stan Martin has been promoted to Director of MLS. Stan will assume the responsibility for leading efforts to drive strategic relevance and operational excellence of the MLS for ABoR and in partnership with its Board of Directors.

An experienced MLS executive, Martin provides a strong combination of product management and operational expertise to ABoR, building on trusted relationships gained with both ABoR members and industry leaders, while also contributing to significant growth for the Association.

“Stan has a depth of understanding about what Central Texas REALTORS® need from the technology of the MLS. He knows how to deliver timely and superior service to our participants and subscribers," said Brandy Guthrie, president of the Austin Board of REALTORS®. "Under Stan’s leadership and guidance, satisfaction of the technology services our Association offers is strong. We are thrilled to see him step into the role to lead our entire MLS operation.”
