The real estate industry lost one of its most noted and colorful members this week when Oliver Frascona died in a plane crash near his airport home in Erie. I considered Oliver a friend and attended several of his famous BBQ’s in his hangar, where he would play the keyboard for his own band. He gave me and my clients valuable legal advice on more than one occasion and he frequently gave feedback on my column, which he received by email. His CE classes were extremely popular for both his knowledge of the subject matter and his great humor. As counsel to 24 Realtor associations, he was invaluable for his advice and for his staunch advocacy of the Realtor brand. He will be missed.
