I do not. 

However, the acquisition of ShowingTime by Z would be enough to cause me not to use the service ... despite the fact that I never did use ShowingTime. 

There will always be new players in the field of real estate.

I am not familiar with this one Ed.  But I do know our MLS is making plans to make a shift out of ST and I'm glad about that.

Have not heard of BrokerBay, We currently have Showingtime through Bright MLS. We used CSS until they were acquired by Showingtime. I preferred the CSS platform over Showingtime , so would be interested in learning more.

Haven't heard anything about it - will be interested to see if anyone has used it. Certainly there are plenty of concerns about using Showingtime these days.

That's a new name for me, Ed. I'd be interested in hearing more. I really want my MLS to get out of Showing Time now that they are a Zillow company.

I have found that sometimes change is really good, especially when a relied upon service is not keeping up with the times and continuing to improve their service.  Our MLS has used ShowingTime for quite some time as well.  I don't have any experience with BrokerBay but I hope that it will be an improved service for you.

I'm not but, anything is better than another brokerage having full access to our clients!

Our MLS is in the process of interviewing other providers...in a hurry!

With ST being bought by Z, our MLS actively searched for a good replacement.  I have seen the video for Broker Bay, and they WERE supposed to be in place by August, but they were having trouble merging data with US MLS info.   Looks like a good platform.
