New markets require new approaches and tactics. Experts and industry leaders take the stage at Inman Connect New York in January to help navigate the market shift — and prepare for the next one. Meet the moment and join us. Register here.

If you’re a regular Inman reader, you probably have your go-to contributors — the ones whose names you look for and never fail to click on. Maybe you even bookmark their columns or their author page to return to, since they always seem to have some nuggets of wisdom for you to revisit.

Maybe you love the practical, actionable advice that you find in some columns or the high-level industry overviews you find in others. Maybe you like someone who stirs things up and says what everyone else is thinking. Maybe you’re looking for a broker or team leader’s perspective; maybe you want boots-on-the-ground agent advice.

Whatever your taste, Inman has a contributor for you: Industry professionals from agents to brokers to trainers and more, all of whom know what it’s like to be where you are and all of whom bring their practical advice to you in written or video form (or sometimes both). Here are the contributors you couldn’t get enough of this year and their most-read columns.
