As Vice President, Client Success & Compliance, Dave Howe has a 34-year track record at MetroList with responsibilities for MLS operations, policy, rules compliance and communication/marketing programs. Dave has also been instrumental in the expansion of MetroList, which resulted in the acquisition of three regional MLS systems.
