Brendan Fairbanks, founder and CEO of Perchwell, is on a mission to revolutionize the MLS platform. Using his own home-buying experience, along with feedback from agents, brokers and consumers, he and his team have created the next-generation MLS system. It was first rolled out in New York City and is being onboarded by MLS organizations throughout the country including REcolorado. 

Fairbanks is a valued and inspiring partner who is facilitating a shift in the industry. REcolorado and Perchwell have been working together for just over a year. In that brief time, the companies have developed a strong partnership and working relationship. Fairbanks not only embodies the core values of both companies, but he inspires others through his actions. Fairbank’s entrepreneurial energy and “get it done” approach inspires his team daily. Perchwell is active with Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO) and the Council of Multiple Listing Services (CMLS). In 2022, Perchwell was one of eight companies invited to be part of the National Association of Realtors Reach growth accelerator. Fairbanks strategically utilized Reach to introduce Perchwell to a national audience. Through Reach he reinforced the universal need for Perchwell’s innovative approach and its scalability across all markets.
