"The industry remains in a persistent state of high productivity and energy, with new business models and innovative technologies," says Shea. "We stay laser- focused on our vision to be the finest real estate com - pany in the region." The third-generation Chair- man & CEO of John L. Scott Real Estate, LENNOX SCOTT serves as the leader of the firm's executive team, which collaborates and fo - cuses on opportunities and positive outcomes of real estate trends. The executive team is also instrumental in developing and implementing action plans leading to inno - vation and ongoing success. Scott's greatest accomplish- ment centers around leading the team through the trends that are currently top of mind in the industry, including dis - count brokerages, Wall Street real estate and shifts in the market. For MARK STARK , CEO and broker/owner of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Arizona/California/Nevada Properties, it's business as usual. With a focus on growth, vision, culture and the overall direction of the company, Stark's great - est accomplishment is the company's 3-Step Success System—and accompanying plan to execute it. While the system is nothing new, the difference is that it's been dialed in even further this year. Pleased with the direc - tion in which the company is heading, Stark and his team are aggressively working their plan day-in and day-out. CANDACE ADAMS , presi- dent and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England, has guided employees through numer - ous changes, including the acquisition of several bro- kerages and the opening of new offices. Adams at - tributes much of her profes- sional success to working with people who share com- mon values and to focusing on corporate culture. "There is no stopping a team com - mitted to doing the right thing! The gust of positive energy propels us to suc- cess," she says.

In October 2018, Herman was honored at the Angel Ball, the annual fundraiser for Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research, for her humanitarianism and philanthro - py. Gabrielle's Angel Foundation funds research on thera- pies and treatments—an endeavor Herman passionately promotes. "This cause is very close to my heart, and it was an amazing opportunity to raise awareness for this incred - ible organization and their quest to cure cancer now," says Herman. Earlier in 2018, Herman was awarded the Ellis Island Medal of Honor from the Ellis Island Honors Society—an achievement she shares with seven U.S. presidents. Ad - ditionally, she was awarded a "Roaring Thirty" by Women in Housing and the Real Estate Ecosystem (NAWRB), as "The Influencer." "I have one of my favorite quotes hanging in my office: 'Success is failure turned inside out,'" Herman says. "It's a daily reminder not to fear failure but, rather, to embrace it. We learn so much more from the experiences we have that challenge us." DOTTIE HERMAN CEO, Douglas Elliman Real Estate 2019 NEWSMAKERS
