Saying goodbye to a legend – Don Machholz

A retirement party was given for Don Machholz who is saying goodbye to the industry to pursue other interests in his chosen field of Astronomy. He takes with him thanks from the many appraisers who have benefitted from his use of Excel to harness the 1004MC form across many MLS systems. He will be missed.
