John Whitney Joins ListHub
Bob and Jay took a seat a Zillow. Todd sat on it at Trulia, and now John has pulled up a chair at Move.com.
Seems like all of them have chosen a seat with a portal. Do they all know something we don’t know? Maybe I should look at buying back Dwellicious!
John left Sentrilock, a NAR owned company, so I guess with MOVE he is still technically part of the REALTOR family? I really think this is a good fit for John. His diverse resume gives him a very unique perspective on the industry.
I’m also hoping that John might enlighten our reader on how he found out about this new gig of him. I have my suspicions but looking for confirmation. : )
