Trestle RETS is RESO 1.8 Certified RETS server and provides RESO Data Dictionary 1.6 Platinum compliant data feeds. Many users prefer to use the RETS platform due to it’s 15+ year history serving the industry. We offer the same data via both RETS and the WebAPI. RETS is no longer in active development by RESO but CoreLogic will continue to server RETS feeds as long as the MLS customers are willing to provide it.
Trestle WebAPI is a RESO 1.0.2 Platinum WebAPI server and provides RESO Data Dictionary 1.6 Platinum compliant data feeds. The WebAPI is in active development by RESO and will continue to receive support.
Trestle supports access to your Native Matrix RETS platform. This allows you to connect directly to an existing matrix feed via RETS. This method requires the least effort because you are creating a new user
Which transport method is for me?
If you have an existing RETS codebase and want to jump straight into something you are familiar with, use RETS.
If you are a new entrant in the industry and want to create cutting edge platforms that leverage the WebAPI to access data, use the WebAPI.
If you have existing data feeds with Matrix and want minimal conversion effort, request a native feed.
Each MLS has the opportunity to decide which transport method is right for them.
