Neil Dholakia, chief product officer of Keller Williams, has joined the Broker Public Portal (BPP) Board of Managers, the organization announced recently. The BPP is owned and operated by real estate brokerages and MLSs and is delivering with Homesnap benefits to more than one million real estate professionals in America today.
As chief product officer of Keller Williams, Dholakia is interested in leveraging technology to disrupt the traditional approach to real estate. Dholakia brings more than 25 years’ experience to his role, having built a wide range of software products that fuse corporate strategy with tactical deliverables. Using R&D insights from KW Labs, the innovation hub of Keller Williams, Dholakia leads KW’s technologists in developing proprietary technology and using the brand’s global scale to fuel a platform aimed at providing the best agent-driven consumer experience in real estate.
“The BPP and our board is strengthened with the addition of Neil Dholakia,” says John Mosey, a board member, chairman of the BPP and CEO of NorthstarMLS. “Neil’s perspective as the chief technology driver for development of KW’s innovative platform and products ensures BPP’s continued growth and influence, as we engage millions of consumers and agents.”
