MEET THE FOUNDERS

Elaine Panico & Richard R. Palladino Jr. have been together for 15 years and have been actively involved in all aspects of Real Estate. Elaine presently holds her Real Estate Broker license along with her Mortgage License plus is currently working as an Accountant in a successful CPA office. Richard also is a Real Estate Broker and Instructor for the past 20 years and is actively working at Century 21 North East as the “Director of Training”. Between Elaine and Richard they founded R-Pal Real Estate Academy School in 2006 and Richie has been an Instructor since 2004 where he has taught over 1000 students to pass their Real Estate Exam.
I actually started right after college. My dad, a longtime successful property owner in Chelsea, Mass., suggested I get my training as an agent at CENTURY 21. He was a firm believer in the brand before I really knew anything about it. In my first full year, I sold only two homes and I figured I may have chosen the wrong career path. I interviewed in the corporate sector and decided to join a small, successful firm in Chelsea called Florence Lipp Real Estate. Florence was not only a leader in the market; she controlled the market. There, I was trained and mentored by Diane Cambria, who helped me list and sell over 50 homes in my second full year. Then, in 1995, my dad heard the CENTURY 21 agency in Chelsea was up for sale. I rushed over to talk to the seller and made my way through a long and shaky process, but finally, at the ripe old age of 25, I was able to close on the sale with franchisor approval—and the rest, as they say, is history.
