2011 People’s Choice: Real Estate’s Most Influential

Deadline extended until Dec. 22 to cast your vote for a real estate leader

Editor’s note: Please note that voting for the People’s Choice Most Influential Real Estate Leader, an individual recognition that is separate from the Inman 100 list, has been extended until Dec. 23, 2011. The Inman 100 Most Influential Real Estate Leaders report will be published Dec. 16, 2011..

It’s time to vote for a leader who you believe has had the most substantial impact on the real estate industry in the past year. Please scroll through the alphabetical list of reader nominees below, and you may choose to select an individual from this list of nominees or cast a vote for another individual who was not named in the nominations process.

One individual will be recognized as the "People’s Choice" Most Influential Real Estate Leader based on a popular vote of Inman News readers. This Reader’s Choice recognition is distinct from the Inman 100 list of Most Influential Real Estate Leaders, which is selected based on reader nominations and an internal review and selection process by Inman News. (The nominations process closed Nov. 1 for the Inman 100 list.)

The Inman 100 list recognizes those whose voices and actions have the power to change the industry. Among them are individuals who embody strength, common sense, innovation, ingenuity, perseverance and progress. They include the industry’s brain trust and dealmakers, and those outside the industry who impact the business of buying and selling homes.

Please do not cast multiple votes for the same individual. Incomplete submissions will not be considered. Duplicate Reader’s Choice votes cast by the same individual will not be considered. The People’s Choice winner will be announced during the Real Estate Connect conference in New York City, which runs from Jan. 11-13, 2012.

Last year the People’s Choice winner was Chris Smith, formerly of the Tech Savvy Agent blog. Smith now serves as the chief evangelist for Inman News and is a leading contributor to the InmanNext blog. Inman News contributors and columnists are not eligible for the People’s Choice recognition and cannot appear on the Inman 100 Most Influential Real Estate Leaders list.

Please make your People’s Choice selections by Friday, Dec. 23, 2011.

View a complete list of readers’ nominations for the Inman 100 Most Influential Real Estate Leaders list below. Voting for the People’s Choice Most Influential Real Estate Leader is not limited to this list of nominees — you may cast your vote for an individual who does not appear on this list.

Important note: The following are reader nominees for this year’s Inman 100 list, and the information below is based on reader-supplied names, titles, and companies and is subject to corrections and updates. Inman News review and selection teams will consider these reader nominees and other individuals in selecting the final Inman 100 list.
