MADISON, N.J., Jan. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Richard A. Smith, chairman, chief executive officer and president of Realogy Holdings Corp. (NYSE: RLGY), was named as the Most Powerful Person in Residential Real Estate Brokerage for 2013, according to the inaugural Swanepoel Power 200 list.
Smith was cited for his leadership in steering Realogy through the housing downturn and on to a highly successful $1.2 billion IPO in late 2012 and positive business results in 2013, as well as for his contributions on the Housing Commission for the Bipartisan Policy Center, a highly influential Washington, D.C., think-tank. "While there are others who have higher personal profiles, within the industry there is no doubt that none have more power and influence in almost every aspect of real estate than Smith," stated the Swanepoel Power 200 report.
A total of 28 Realogy executives and independent brokers affiliated with Realogy's franchise brands were recognized in this ranking of industry leaders – more than any other real estate company in the nation. Realogy also led the way with six executives in the top 25.
"We are indeed proud to receive this recognition of Realogy's leadership within the industry," said Smith. "The combined placement of our executives and influential franchisees on this list is a tribute to the leaders we have attracted to our company and our franchise brands. We are honored to be included in such a distinguished list of influencers across the real estate industry."
The Swanepoel Power 200, authored by trends analyst Stefan Swanepoel and industry consultant Rob Hahn, is described as the most comprehensive list of influential CEOs, thought leaders and senior executives ever assembled in the residential real estate brokerage business. The rankings are based on multiple criteria that take into account the individual's personal influence, his/her tenure in the industry, the office he or she holds, the decision-making power of said office, the financial resources of the company or organization, the company or organization's significance and contribution to the industry, the company's geographic reach, and his or her recent activities, growth, and potential.
