44 July 2018 RISMedia's REAL ESTATE ELIZABETH MENDENHALL, 2018 President, National Association of REALTORS® (NAR); CEO, RE/MAX Boone Realty Awarded for passionately advocating for REALTORS® and homeowners on issues such as preserving the mortgage interest deduction to increasing homeownership for all Americans. "To be here standing before you and beside you is very overwhelm- ing. RISMedia's publication made me better as a broker and more knowledgeable about the industry. I accept this on behalf of the NAR leadership team, and I'm glad to be part of a team with Bob and all of you. It wouldn't work without all of you being a part of it." HELEN HANNA CASEY, CEO, Howard Hanna Real Estate Services Awarded for spearheading one of the country's leading, independent family-owned and operated real es- tate firms, and creating a storied real estate legacy. "This award recognizes what we do ev- ery day in our market, and not only what we achieve, but what we believe. I would have to say many have made us the newsmakers; we didn't do it on our own. To all the winners and the RISMedia staff of incredible people, thank you for making me into what I am today." JOSEPH RAND, Chief Creative Officer, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Rand Realty Awarded for his increasingly significant role as a thought leader and influencer in the real estate industry—for chal- lenging the standard way of approaching the business and innovating for the future. "This is really quite an honor. So many people talk about change coming from the outside, but I really don't see it. The idea that change can't come from within is just wrong. I see people bringing change every day. We can't be closed off to new ideas or the threats of alternate business models; I'm proud to stand by people who are embracing change." MATT WIDDOWS, CEO/Founder, HomeSmart International Awarded for working with Angel Flight to fly his private plane into the Caribbean during last fall's Hurricane Irma, delivering supplies and transport- ing passengers in need of medical treatment. "This is such an honor to be awarded for this, and I want to thank everyone at RISMedia. What it comes down to is giving back to someone in your community. Just show up to help those in need—there's enough for everybody to help out." Jeff Sposito, J. Rockcliff REALTORS®
