Inman recognizes 101 real estate industry doers whose ingenuity, outspokenness, strength, conviction, power and persistence are driving change.
The Inman 101 includes rebels, CEOs, power brokers, misfits, deal-makers, newbies and innovators whose ideas and actions will influence the way homes are bought and sold. It is a diverse mix of new and seasoned; the high- and the low-profile; small and mega brokers; top producers and everyday agents; old school leaders and entrepreneurs — all of whom never stop doing.
“It is not who you are, it is what you do,” said Publisher Brad Inman. “It is not about yesterday’s achievements but what we expect from them in the future.”
This year, we are recognizing The Inman Doer of the Year, Sarah Leary, co-founder of Nextdoor, the free and private social network for neighborhoods that is connecting neighbors and making communities safer.
“Thousands of capable and purposeful professionals are changing the course of the industry, but this is our pick of 101 we are watching closely as they face and forge a constantly shifting landscape,” said Inman Editor Amber Taufen.
The annual list is organized into the following categories:
- Brokerages, Franchisors, Brokerage Organizations
- Economists and Consultants
- Industry trade groups, MLSs
- Media, Blogging, Social Media, Marketing
- Mortgage, Title, Ancillary Services
The selection process for the Inman 101 involved nominations and recommendations from Inman’s readership, Ambassadors, the editorial team, outside advisors and industry experts.
