The Evolution of
the Real Estate Industry
Only a few short years ago, homes and land were advertised by word of mouth and sold with a firm handshake. It was a simpler time, when an agent with a fax was high tech, and most deals were done with Polaroids and paperwork. But just like an old Polaroid, those days have long since faded away into obscurity.
These days property deals move at the speed of light. Transactions are digital, instant and happen with the click of a button. Agents build entire websites dedicated to showcasing luxury properties, complete with 3D walkthroughs and dynamic virtual showing options.
It would be easy for someone on the outside looking in to say that the modern real estate industry is nothing like what it used to be. That everything has changed.
But they would be wrong.
People are the secret ingredient to running a successful real estate team.
Many of them work in obscurity, tirelessly creating opportunities and innovations that elevate the industry to dizzying heights each year. In spite of the industry impacting virtually everyone in the country and accounting for billions of dollars in sales, there are no “Academy Awards” for Real Estate professionals. Your only recognition was the smiling faces of the families you helped find their forever homes, and the satisfaction and pride of a job well done.
SUCCESS is changing that.
The backbone of the industry is not the tools suite, the tech stack or the pitchfest pipeline of shiny new innovations that get force-fed into your broker’s inbox...
It’s the people. It always has been. It always will be.
That’s the real magic that has made the real estate industry the success it is.
We are launching the Real Estate Trendsetters awards to recognize the people who make this industry great.
Not only the rockstar agents and brokers who built the industry on their backs, but also their rock-solid support staff who are often the glue that holds the team together.
We are recognizing the technology innovators who create ground-breaking software that can revolutionize the industry seemingly overnight, and the old-fashioned hometown brokers who still send handwritten birthday cards out to everyone in their Rolodex.
These are the people who define the industry. They come from all walks of life and from every corner of the globe. The only constant is their love for the industry and the people they serve.
The Real Estate Trendsetters awards were created to put the focus back where it belongs: on the people who make this industry great. Regardless of the role they serve, Trendsetters are the people who make a difference in real estate. We want to recognize and celebrate these catalysts of change who are revolutionizing the real estate industry.
