Your The Many Faces of News R ISMedia has a long history of covering the real estate industry and the many professionals who work so hard within it to serve the cause of home- ownership. For more than 38 years, we've spotlighted the leaders and practitioners in the business, sharing their top-level perspectives and invaluable best practices. But the reality is, there are people out there in this industry generating headline- making news everyday that's worthy of coverage. That's why, as a media company, we decided to begin formally recognizing such individuals and their stories by launching RISMedia's Real Estate Newsmaker Awards earlier this year. We kicked off the idea with our First Annual Real Estate Newsmaker Awards Reception & Dinner in Washington, D.C., this past May. During the event held at the il- lustrious National Press Club, we inducted the inaugural News- makers Hall of Fame (page 74), a select group who went above and beyond to make headlines in the real estate industry. In this issue, it is my great honor to introduce you to our 2019 Class of RISMedia's Real Estate Newsmakers, more than 230 individuals who were nominated by you, our readers, and the editorial team at RISMedia. While there are a lot of worthy lists out there based on production numbers or industry status, Newsmakers is different. Newsmakers recognizes individuals for doing something truly newsworthy, whether it's Nick Bailey leading the complete modernization of CENTURY 21 or Realty Kings Properties' Kiesha Curtis helping Houston residents register with FEMA after Hurricane Harvey. Because news isn't just about the big name being talked about on every network, it's also about the little guy on your local channel making a big impact in your community. Recognition is warranted in both cases and everywhere in between—and that's what we've set out to do with RISMedia's Real Estate Newsmakers. You can meet our 2019 Newsmakers beginning on page 31 in our special spotlight section, and you'll find the complete list and extended profiles online at rismedia.com/2019-newsmak- ers. We couldn't think of a better way to close out the year than by honoring these worthy individuals. To our Newsmakers, we extend our sincere congratulations and admiration, and to all of you, our best wishes for a peace-filled and joyous holiday. John E.
