Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

Dave Howe named CEO and President of MetroList Services

MetroList Elevates Dave Howe to Chief Executive Officer and President

“The MetroList® Board of Directors announced the appointment of Dave Howe to lead MetroList as Chief Executive Officer and President. Previously he served as President, and with this announcement, Mr. Howe becomes the organization’s CEO/President. MetroList is Northern California’s largest Multiple Listing Service (MLS), operating in 13 counties. Dave succeeds Rick Trevino, who has stepped down from his CEO position due to health reasons.”

There are two stories here. One I’m completely happy to see happen, Dave Howe is now CEO/President of MetroList Services. I’ve known Dave for close to 30 years and it is great to see him rise up to this level. I’ve often called him “the hardest working man in the MLS business”, but this shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. In his career, he has learned from the best and shrewdest minds in the business starting with Tom Beede, Bill Miller, and recently Rick Trevino. Dave also served on the board of directors of CMLS and later as President. MetroList has a great staff and I know the transition will be smooth and they will find continued success with their new leader.

But the news is also a bit saddening. I know Rick was been struggling and fighting cancer for some time now. Even while dealing with these health issues Rick was still being recognized and named on the Swanepoel 200 list of the most powerful people in real estate. As he leaves MetroList to continue that battle it’s good to know he left on top. #fuckcancer
