{Publisher's Desk} T oday's real estate business is not for the faint of heart. With an ever smarter, more tech-savvy consumer, and a growing contingent of competitors in different guises, it takes creative thinking, evolved skills and a bold approach to stand apart and succeed—especially for a brand that considers itself the "original disruptor." In this month's cover story, we look under the hood to see how RE/MAX is re-engineering the firm to maintain its reputation as a revolutionary brand in this highly changeable real estate landscape. As CEO Adam Contos says, "We're playing offense, not defense. And we're not done shaking up the industry." From heavy investments in digital marketing and tech develop- ment—such as the acquisition of tech innovator, booj—to ongo- ing support of its Motto Mortgage venture and its expanding global presence, RE/MAX exemplifies the proactive approach every modern-day player in real estate needs to take, whether you're a national brand or an individual agent. At RISMedia's CEO Exchange, taking place at the Harvard Club of New York City this month, this is exactly the type of subject matter that will be discussed among the more than 38 leading brokers and experts participating in panel discussions and keynote presentations during the event. We hope to see you in New York, but if you're not one of the 230-plus executives join- ing us, please follow the event on Facebook and Twitter using #CEOX2018, and look for our news coverage at rismedia.com.
