National Broker Portal, LLC Names New Board Member Chair
ARROYO GRANDE, CA, SEPTEMBER 19, 2018 — The Board of Managers of the National Broker Portal, a joint venture between Broker Public Portal (BPP) and Homesnap, today announced Daniel J. Riley, Esq., of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, has joined its Board and become its Chairman. Riley is Executive Vice President of Administration at Howard Hanna, ranked as the third largest real estate firm in the U.S. by REAL Trends, and will replace David Charron, former chief strategy officer of Bright MLS.
Riley, a licensed attorney in the state of Ohio, is anindustry veteran. He has been in real estate for nearly a quarter of a century. His deep proficiency includes experience in real executive management [what is real executive management?], as a title insurance agency operator and minority owner, legal counsel, and Certified Public Accountant.
“Dan Riley is one of the most astute minds in the real estate business,” said John Mosey, a National Broker Public Portal board member, Chairman of the BPP and CEO of NorthstarMLS. “Having a brokerage leader at the helm of our joint venture demonstrates how the Broker Public Portal with Homesnap movement is on the front-burner of the industry’s online portal strategy,” he added.
At Howard Hanna, Riley handles all company-wide contracting, oversees syndication relationships (Zillow Group, realtor.com – I hate to mention competitors in a BPP-related press release – can we leave these names out?), and is responsible for managing the firm’s implementation team for company-wide initiatives, including the deployment of Spacio, RealScout, Testimonial Tree, Moxi Engage, ZipForms, One Cavo, Trendgraphix and more. He also collaborates with Howard Hanna’s IT, marketing, training and sales operations to drive continuous improvement of company offerings to agents and works closely with the firm’s Executive Team on data collection, analysis, reporting and decision making.
Before joining Howard Hanna, Riley was Executive Vice President at Real Living Realty One, President and minority owner of Real Living Title Agency (a joint venture between Real Living and Chicago Title), a Vice President of Relocation at Realty One and the President of Dolores C. Knowlton Realtors.
A Cleveland, Ohio native who still lives in the city where he was born and raised, Riley earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from St. Bonaventure University, a Master of Business Administration from Cleveland State University, and a Juris Doctorate from John Marshall College of Law.
