Robert W. Semenow was the first staff member for ARELLO®, serving with the title of "executive vice president" from 1930 until 1977 -- a tenure that likely never will be matched. Semenow was during that time THE world authority on real estate license law. He had distinguished himself as Professor of Urban Land Studies at the University of Pittsburgh and as the Director of Pennsylvania's Real Estate Broker's License Law. He probably is most known for authoring the book Questions and Answers on Real Estate, which was the main reference for anyone preparing for a real estate licensing examination during those years. Semenow earned a bachelor's degree in economics (B.S.), a master's degree in letters (M.Litt.) and credentials in law (J.D. and LL.D.) and also published the book Selected Cases in Real Estate. His expertise and effort were vital to the early success of this association.
