Formerly EVP of industry development for Move, Beardsley now serves in a similar position at Zillow, working to build and strengthen the company’s relationships with multiple listing services (MLS) and other industry partners at VP of industry development.
“Curt has extensive experience in the real estate sector with a great combination of skills and leadership and we’re excited to welcome him to Zillow,” said CEO Spencer Rascoff. “We’re committed to building valuable products and services for our industry partners and Curt’s deep background with real estate technology and building partnerships is another great addition to our growing team.”
A 20-year veteran of the industry, Beardsley arrived on the Web MLS scene with his founding of True North Technology, where he developed and deployed the first major Internet-based MLS system in the United States. Previously, he worked with Windermere Real Estate Company and others to develop one of the first public real estate websites to offer complete inventory of MLS listings to consumers.
