SIMI VALLEY, Calif., July 9, 2018 – Rapattoni Corporation (Rapattoni) announced today that real estate industry veteran Scott Quinn has joined the company as Vice President of Sales. Mr. Quinn brings over 30 years of industry experience to Rapattoni and will focus on Rapattoni MLS sales as well as lending his expertise to the company’s other products and services, working closely with Vice President of Sales Kevin Wolfe and the company’s sales team.
Mr. Quinn joins Rapattoni as the company continues its drive into the future with a series of updated products and services. The company’s new direction began in 2015 with an increased focus on innovation and user experience, highlighted by the successful launch of the new Rapattoni Magic-Cloud AMS product, continued expansion for Rapattoni’s Integrated Website Service (IWS), and exciting new enhancements for the flagship Rapattoni MLS software. Rapattoni is also offering a “front end of choice” solution allowing Rapattoni MLS to run parallel with MLS software from other vendors, a system which is currently in place for the Miami Association of REALTORS®, located in South Florida, as well as the Lexington-Bluegrass Association of REALTORS® in Kentucky.
Brian Tepfer, Executive Vice President, commented, “As part of our commitment to the industry, Rapattoni is helping drive the MLS market and real estate industry forward. As MLSs continue to merge and consolidate, we aim to provide robust and innovative solutions across our entire line of products and services. This can be in a standalone MLS solution, or with our ‘Front End of Choice’ option giving users more choices in the tools they use to run their business. Scott is a natural fit to help connect customers with ideal solutions for capitalizing on the evolving real estate marketplace.”
According to Destyn Dagle, MLS Director, “New features and highlights of the MLS product have been showcased by the recent release of the Rapattoni MLS Custom Report Writer (click here for a demo), which allows Brokers, Agents, Administrators and MLS Staff to create, email, text, and print beautiful flyers and reports in minutes. Other recent enhancements are helping Rapattoni MLS users connect with new clients and emerging services, including an updated Client Portal and new Client Activity feed; Interactive Mapping; Listing Syndication Manager; improved Mobile MLS App with SMS texting, listing updates, and photo uploads; and the new IDX experience with integrated lead generation. We also maintain an in-house GIS (geographic information systems) team that creates custom map layers which provide Rapattoni users with regionally important information. I look forward to working with Scott to showcase our outstanding MLS and the variety of new features in development.”
Rapattoni President Ralph Hoover said, “We are fortunate to have Scott join us with his decades of experience in the MLS sphere, creating an invaluable asset for reaching new and existing customers. His contributions will help our team drive the continuing evolution of our Rapattoni MLS software.”
Kevin Wolfe remarked, “It’s great having Scott come on board to help campaign for our MLS product and services. Our latest updates for the MLS software offer extremely competitive features in the evolving marketplace and our Cloud AMS product has raised the bar in membership management”
In 1986, Mr. Quinn entered the real estate industry with Offutt Publishing Company in Greensboro, North Carolina, an MLS book publishing firm which would go on to release InnoVia as one of the country’s first Web-based MLS systems. Mr. Quinn rose to President in 1995 and, when the company was sold to First American Financial Corporation in 2007, Mr. Quinn ran InnoVia as a separate division under their Real Estate Divisions Group as Senior Vice President until First American spun the group off to what is now called CoreLogic. With CoreLogic, Mr. Quinn served as IT Manager II, Senior Product Manager, and Principal Account Executive before moving to MMSI in January of this year.
Scott commented, “I am really looking forward to being a part of the Rapattoni organization. The company has an impressive suite of products and they’ve built a legacy of innovation and customer satisfaction spanning nearly 50 years which fits with my passion for the MLS business.”
Mr. Quinn will serve on the Rapattoni leadership team, working with Chief Executive Officer Niki Rapattoni, President Ralph Hoover, Executive Vice President Brian Tepfer, and several other industry veterans to set the company’s direction into the future. The 12-person leadership team brings together over 290 years of experience and leadership in the real estate industry.
Niki Rapattoni said, “We’re absolutely thrilled to have Scott join Rapattoni Corporation. When he visited our offices, I was immediately impressed with his enthusiasm for the business as well as his dedication to providing customers with exceptional service and support. Those values are a perfect fit with Rapattoni.”
