Pat Gray and Todd Drowlette launched the site in September of 2010 in an attempt to offer premium quality as well as a completely free user interface which crossed several categories all in the same place.
HISTORY Todd Drowlette and Pat Gray were roommates at Siena College. After graduation, Todd began his career in Commercial Real Estate whereas Pat began with a Tech start up in Albany. During Toddâ€™s career in Real Estate, it became evident that there was a need for a more cost-effective way of marketing and finding properties became evident. This sparked the idea for the website, which he brought in Pat for the technology side of the Business. The two brought in others and the site was launched a year later.
Site Characteristics: Business Section MoveThatBlock recently added a Business Section to their already diverse online classified service. This service gives Businesses the opportunity to create free profiles which users can rate, review and compare.
