    In Albany for 25 years I was first a member of Albany MLS until it disbanded so I became a member of Willamette Valley MLS. Twenty + years ago when I moved to Florence; there was a weekly meeting to talk about listings but no source to alert us if a property was listed; then came “Mike’s list” which we paid $1/week for a list which we picked up from Mike Herbert in Ruby Chapman’s office & which just had a one line listing of office, address, & price so we weren’t unknowingly soliciting listings that other offices had already listed. However, some of the listings had long since expired as Mike had no way to know of expiration dates. Then Florence tried to form an MLS; Don Olson was most helpful & spent a lot of time on it as he was one of very few brokers who had actually been a member of a functioning MLS elsewhere. I was still a member of WVMLS & I tried to get Florence to join there instead of trying to form a new MLS but Florence brokers still liked the idea of forming the new Florence MLS. Then another broker & I heard that RMLS would accept us; I understand that TR Hunter joined a few days prior to my joining & soon all Florence brokers joined RMLS. Now we would be lost without RMLS.
