My State MLS recently announced that R. Michael Brown has joined the organization as vice president of marketing and communications. He was most recently a consultant at R. Michael Brown LLC with clients including My State MLS, South Florida Agent magazine, French Wine Merchant in the Town of Palm Beach, iCOM, Minto Communities and more.
Brown was the director of communication for the prestigious Town of Palm Beach Civic Association where he founded and led the newsroom of the popular “This Week in Palm Beach” e-news and video newscast known as Palm Beach TV. That content marketing program led to record views and membership levels for the organization. A resident of Wellington, Brown enjoys road cycling, surfing and spending time with his wife and children. Brown previously cycled competitively and is a former certified volunteer U.S. Olympic cycling coach.
“We are very happy to have Mike onboard,” said Dawn Pfaff, president and CEO of My State MLS. “His proven leadership in helping organizations innovate in multimedia communications to attract viewers, increase leads and sales and launch products and services into markets adds a fresh new dimension to My State MLS.”
Brown has marketing and communications experience in multiple industries that include the director of marketing and public relations at DiVosta, Del Webb and Pulte Homes for the State of Florida, where his leadership led to more than 4,200 home sales per year in 80 communities. As marketing and communications manager at Motorola Solutions, he launched Nextel and steered it to win Product of the Decade from Business Week magazine. He was a pioneer in Internet and multimedia communications at IBM.
“My State MLS is a disruptor in the real estate market,” Brown said. “We offer a nationwide multiple listing service for real estate pros who want to list properties at competitive rates, increase their territory or need to market properties across boundaries to get more leads and sales. Our service is perfect for today’s agent and broker in the current and future environment, and I’m thrilled to be a part of this awesome team to grow market share. Plus, we have been working on a content platform that will be in an announcement that I can’t wait for you to see.”
In 2009, Dawn Pfaff founded NY State MLS, a full multiple listings service serving all 62 New York counties. Born from a desire to create a common-sense MLS solution, New York’s statewide service quickly garnered agents across the state, as well as nationwide attention and demand for the company’s services. In 2015, My State MLS, the first nationwide service of its kind, was created and today it has agents in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. For more info., visit www.mystatemls.com.
