2013 Inman 100 Most Influential Real Estate Leaders, Complete List

This is really fascinating. I recognize a lot of names. It also provides a checklist or services to review in case some are not in your toolbox. Janie Coffey gets a special thanks from me as always! Checkout this Inman list. Cartavi is already in my toolbox  thanks to the Inman Next referral earlier this year.

2013 100 Most Influential Real Estate Leaders

See the Complete List

A big congratulations to all the people that made the recently announced 2013 Inman News 100 Most Influential Real Estate Leaders. If you take the time to browse the full list below, you will certainly see some names that you recognize. Many of these folks are current and former members of ActiveRain.

Each year, Inman News compiles a list of the 100 most influential people in real estate. 2013 is no exception. One of the newest additions to the list is ActiveRain Blogger, and Manager of Industry Engagement for Better Homes and Garden Real Estate, Rebekah Radice. It's great to see her on that list as I know she has certainly been influential to so many of us here on ActiveRain. 

The list is broken down into six sections:

  • Brokerages, Franchisors, Brokerage Organizations
  • Government
  • Economists, Academics, and Consultants
  • Industry trade groups, MLSs
  • Media, Blogging, Social Media, Marketing
  • Mortgage, Title, Ancillary Services
  • Technology

The editors at Inman News always compile a list with some serious heavy hitters. These folks are in many ways leading the industry at every turn in each of their respective roles within the companies they run. Congratulations to everyone that was selected this year based on the criteria that Inman uses to compile the list. (you can see the criteria near the bottom of that link)

You can see the entire list on the Inman news site here. Or you can check below and quickly scan the list to see if any of the people that influenced you in the last year are on the list.
