I hesitate even posting this new because everyone gets those Rapattoni Corporation News emails. But this is pretty big.

Love ’em or hate ’em ever since Rapattoni has entered the MLS business they have been kicking ass. Andy Rapattoni is a legend in this business, I still marvel of how they have been in the real estate technology arena for over 37 years. Our best wishes to Nick, he’s got some pretty big shoes to fill.
