Allen Benson, Catylist's Chief Information Officer has more than 25 years’ experience in cutting-edge real estate technology. Starting out as CTO of Windermere Real Estate, the largest regional franchised real estate company on the West Coast, Benson took the company online and was the first in the country to put the entire MLS online for the public to search. In 1997, Allen founded eProperty Data with the goal of bringing the commercial real estate industry technology up to the level of the residential industry. Once the technology was introduced and adopted by the commercial practitioners, the next step was to provide a fully researched solution to the industry. After bringing multiple markets online, eProperty Data was purchased by the National Association of Realtors® in 2007. Allen went back to the grassroots and worked hand-in-hand with commercial brokers to find the void in the industry. In 2016, Allen joined up with Catylist to once again help advance the commercial industry through the use of technology.
