Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

Brad Bjelke (former EVP and General Counsel of Rapattoni) joins lawfirm (JDTP)

Brad Bjelke
Seems like yesterday that Brad Bjelke was named EVP of Rapattoni. But it looks like he has decided to take on a new challenge. Brad has joined the law firm of JDTP; Jackson|DeMarco|Tidus|Peckenpaugh (a you thought Rapattoni was hard to spell!)

According the the press release:
“Brad has extensive experience with real estate technology licensing, regionalization of MLS entities, real estate data sharing issues, software agreements, IDX policies, RETS compliance, the setup and maintenance of VOWs, website scraping, and the implementation of policies established by NAR and state associations.”

Looks like he has some real front line experience with all the legal mumbo-jumbo in real estate.

  1. Brad’s press release has a misstatement in it. Brad was only Rapattoni’s executive vice president for four months, not five years as stated in the PR. The announcement on his old law firm’s Web site, regarding his return, has the same misstatement.
