Will Realogy's executive shake-up reignite growth?

The real estate behemoth is undergoing ripples of change from the top down
  • Realogy, which owns and operates several large real estate brands, is still profitable, but its growth has been slipping.
  • The company has made (and plans to make) several executive hires to keep the bottom lines healthy in 2017, and a succession plan is being made for CEO Richard Smith.

A CEO announcement or two here, a dip in transaction volume there — bits of news dropped like dots on a map. Connected, they form a bigger picture: 10 executive-level shifts in nine months, and the makings of a seemingly aggressive regrouping strategy.
