I f there's one lesson that's constantly reinforced for us, it's that change is going to happen…whether we're ready for it or not. From unprecedented natural disasters to historic tax law changes to cyber threats that were once the stuff of science fiction, life has gotten a bit unpredictable, to put it mildly. At the real estate level, surviving change—both large- and small-scale—boils down to resiliency and innovation. If we can't adjust to whatever we're handed—and adjust quickly— our ability to move forward and our long-term sustainability will be compromised. With that in mind, we bring you some great examples of innovators in this issue—and strategies for incorporating innovation into your own business. Be sure to check out: Our new 'Industry Innovators' series on page 24 - This month, we interview Rett Harmon with CENTURY 21 Novus Realty, who's leveraging video to build relationships in the community and increase business—to the tune of 184 closed transactions for his team last year. Strategies for handling tax reform on page 39 - Here, we take a look at how tax reform will impact you as a real estate professional. Be ready to make the necessary changes in how you approach your business this year. The best systems for supercharging your team on page 61 - In our Power Teams section this month, Verl Workman and company dive into why strategic systems are a critical part of your team's success, and which ones will make the most difference. New ways to market yourself with Snapchat on page 70 - In our new #SocialSkills series, you'll find important new strategies for making the most of social media.

Innovation is also happening on a large scale in our industry, as evidenced by the affiliation between Guaranteed Rate and Realogy to form Guaranteed Rate Affinity, a partnership designed to move mortgage lending—and the entire home- buying process—into the modern age.
