2023 HW Tech Trendsetter: Brian Donnellan

Brian Donnellan

Brian Donnellan continues to lead Bright MLS with an eye toward the future as a tech-enabled information services and data distribution company. He has built a team and strategy around retaining the core concepts of the MLS that help provide a strong foundation, while allowing Bright to innovate and operate as a premier listing marketplace.

Under Donnellan’s leadership, Bright MLS and CRMLS have launched Nestfully, a brand-new portal designed for consumers as the primary audience, offering a differentiated search experience built around how homebuyers search for properties. This includes the ability to search for properties and easily apply filters based on an individual’s unique needs, as well as the ability to schedule a showing and, most importantly, the ability for consumers to directly ask the listing agent questions about homes that interest them.

In addition to providing the freshest, most up-to-date listing information and just-sold information, Nestfully.com offers seamless desktop, mobile and native iOS and Android app experiences. Nestfully is an ad-free site that removes clutter for consumers and delivers what in-market consumers are looking for: listings that are available for sale in their market, without biased sorting or “promoted” listings.

Bright’s expertise, under Donnellan’s leadership, allowed an ambitious design, development and launch schedule. Several MLSs have joined Nestfully, including REColorado, Beaches MLS and the MIAMI REALTORS.
