Besides owning RealtyTrac, ATTOM is a licensor of what it says is the most comprehensive foreclosure database in the U.S.

“As ATTOM continues its growth and expansion in the data licensing business, we also have been revitalizing RealtyTrac, one of the original and strongest online brands in the U.S. residential real estate market,” said Rob Barber, CEO of ATTOM Data Solutions. “Rick’s extensive experience in the real estate and mortgage industry, along with his established industry relationships, make him an invaluable addition to the growing RealtyTrac team.”

Sharga most recently served as EVP for Carrington Mortgage Holdings, and chief marketing officer of the company’s Vylla business unit. Before Carrington, he was CMO at Auction.com, an online real estate marketplace that began as an auction site for foreclosures arising from the 2008 financial crisis. 

The company was rebranded during Sharga’s tenure as Ten-X, and was acquired earlier this summer by the CoStar Group for $190 million.

This marks Sharga’s second go-round at RealtyTrac. He helped lay the foundation for its communications program for eight years in the early 2000s.
