MoxiWorks Names Eric Elfman As Chief Executive Officer

“MoxiWorks, the leading real estate technology platform for agents, today announced the appointment of Eric Elfman, an experienced executive with a track record of accelerating product and go-to-market strategy, as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer and member of the Board of Directors. Current CEO York Baur will remain on the Board of Directors helping to guide vision and strategy. “


End of an era. What I appreciated about York is that he could be a fierce competitor but we would still be able to shoot the shit together about this crazy business we were both in. Cheers my friend and welcome Eric to the Hotel California.

David Mele leaves Homes.com

Homes.com president out

“Mele took the president role at Homes.com nearly 10 years ago after a run in local news publishing with The Virginian-Pilot. During his tenure with Homes.com, Mele oversaw the company’s acquisition by CoStar in 2021 and its rise as a major player in the home search space.

CoStar CEO Andy Florance confirmed Mele’s departure to Real Estate News, adding that the company is “grateful to David Mele for his contributions to Homes.com” and that the team “wishes him the best” in his future endeavor”

AJ LaTrace, Real Estate News

Sounds like he left on his own terms. Good for him. Having been there from the beginning (starting at Dominion Enterprises) on through the acquisition by CoStar, changing the entire business model, heading HomeSnap and then Super Bowl ads. You gotta believe he has some great stories to tell.

Bob Hale announces retirement in 2026, René Galvan named successor.


“Following Hale’s announcement, the HAR board of directors unanimously approved current HAR Executive Vice President René Galvan to succeed Hale as HAR president and CEO in 2026. Galvan has served as a critical member of HAR’s management team since 1996 when he was hired as Director of Business Development. In 1999, Galvan was recruited away as CEO of the Realtor Association of Greater Fort Lauderdale, but he returned to HAR as EVP two years later and has held that post ever since.

Asked about his accomplishments during his tenure at HAR, Galvan said, “I am most proud of building a team of incredible professionals, keeping focused on our mission of helping members achieve success, and working closely with staff and leadership to improve service to members while keeping a watchful eye on expenses resulting in no dues increase during the past 21 years.”

“This journey has been one that I will cherish for the rest of my life,” said Hale. “I could not think of anyone more qualified and driven than René Galvan to lead HAR through the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for the real estate industry.”


What a journey! 52 years in the arena, fighting the good fight, planning, innovating, leading, teaching, and sharing. Bob’s generosity is unmatched and what he has contributed to this industry can’t be overstated. And what a class act announcing René as his successor at the same time as his retirement.

I know he doesn’t retire till February 2026 but I just want to be the first to say thank you Bob.

Dan Troup is the new CEO of the Broker Public Portal (BPP)


“As the former director of Data Operations & Strategy at RE/MAX, BPP stated that Troup has a demonstrated history of driving strategic initiatives, fostering collaboration, and delivering exceptional results. In his new role as CEO of Broker Public Portal, he will be responsible for the organization’s strategic vision, partnerships, business model, financials, product development roadmap, and launch.”

RIS Media

Congratulations to Dan. Interestingly enough this is the second gig Dan has had taking over for something Homes.com used to manage. First when RE/MAX ended its agreement with Homes.com for data aggregation and lead management services for remax.com (which first started at eNeighborhoods) and now when BPP ended its relationship with Homes.com (first started with Homesnap).

I will say I’m super curious on what direction BPP goes. It’s unclear to me (everyone?) what the play could be here, I honestly don’t have any idea. Maybe a partnership with Nestfully? 🤷‍♂️
