{Publisher's Desk} The View From the Top S ustaining a people-first strategy is critical for real estate compa- nies that have their sights set on moving up the leaderboard in today's competitive real estate market. While the journey to the top isn't always easy, once you get there, it's worth it. Just ask the folks at HomeServices of America as they celebrate a new milestone after claiming the No. 1 spot in U.S. residential transactions this year. "Being No. 1 is an exciting achievement," explains HomeSer- vices Executive Chairman Ron Peltier in this month's cover story (page 26), "and it's the result of a lot of diligent work by a lot of people who are committed to helping the consumer navigate the biggest financial and emotional decision of their life. We want to create the best, most positive consumer experience. That's our mission, and we try to execute that every day." Founded upon this very concept of serving the consumer, this relationship-centric mission has been the real difference-maker for the company. "Our greatest opportunity is to change the perception of our industry to the benefit of our agents, brokerages and consum- ers," says HomeServices CEO Gino Blefari. Going above and beyond for clients and the communities we call home is more important than ever when it comes to effect- ing change for the future of our industry, which we celebrated in a big way at our recent Newsmakers Reception & Dinner, held during the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo in Washington, D.C., this past May. More than 225 industry leaders convened at the National Press Club for an inspiring evening as RISMedia celebrated its 2019 Class of Real Estate Newsmakers, as well as 10 Hall of Fame inductees. Honoring those who made headlines for their newsworthy con- tributions to the real estate industry and the communities and consumers they serve, a full recap of the event can be found beginning on page 54. And remember, if you or someone you know is making a differ- ence for the future of the real estate business and the greater cause of homeownership, be sure to nominate them to become a 2020 RISMedia Real Estate Newsmaker at rismedia.com/ newsmaker-nomination.
