I n the real estate business, people make news for various reasons, whether it be an appointment to an important post, a sizeable acquisition or a big year in production. For more than 38 years, we've covered these folks in the pages of RISMedia's Real Estate magazine and online at RISMedia.com. Last month, we were thrilled to formalize this process with RISMedia's inaugural Real Estate Newsmaker Awards, held at the prestigious National Press Club in Washington, D.C., during the NAR Leg- islative Meetings & Trade Expo. Not only did we award seven very deserving individuals that night, we also expanded and defined what it truly means to be a Real Estate Newsmaker. While being appointed to leadership positions and achieving success through expansion and production are certainly legitimate, newsmaking accomplishments—ones we've honored for more than 30 years through our Power Broker Report, Reception & Dinner—RISMedia's Real Estate Newsmaker Awards are designed to honor those individuals making headlines for their many and varied contributions to the real estate industry and the communities and consum- ers they serve. We are thrilled to spotlight one of our 2018 Real Estate Newsmakers on our front cover this month. Not only has Ron Peltier steered HomeServices of America on its 20-year journey to become the No. 2 real estate firm in America, he is one of the industry's rare individuals—grounded by integrity, and driven by the singular mission of serving the home-buying and -selling community. I couldn't think of a better person to honor as one of our inaugural Newsmakers than this true real estate icon. Read more about Ron and HomeServices' past, present and future on page 30. You can also read all about our first annual Newsmaker Awards Reception & Dinner—including details on our other winners—online at RISMedia.com and forthcoming in our July issue. I am also excited to announce the expansion of RISMedia's Real Estate Newsmakers for 2019, as we extend the awards to recognize hundreds of real estate profession- als across the country and around the world. Nominations for RISMedia's 2019 Newsmakers are now being accepted at RISMedia.com. To all our 2018 Real Estate Newsmakers, we extend our sin- cere congratulations! And to all you Newsmakers out there, visit RISMedia.com and tell us your story. John E.
