RISMedia's REAL ESTATE July 2018 45 RON PELTIER, CEO/Chairman, HomeServices of America Awarded for becoming a true indus- try icon, growing HomeServices of America from four to 44 brokerages over 20 years, joining the Berkshire Ha- thaway family, and creating HSF Affiliates. "While seven people have been recognized, there are a lot of great people who are doing a lot of great things, and a lot of game changers in this industry. I hope there are 400 people next year, because we haven't been do- ing a great job of recognizing those goodwill stories." TERESA PALACIOS SMITH, VP of Diversity & Inclusion, HSF Affiliates Awarded for taking on a first-of-its-kind role, vice president of diversity and inclusion for HSF Affiliates, and effecting necessary change for the future of our industry and home- ownership. "I am without words, but I have to tell you that to be in the company of the individuals receiving these awards, who I have admired for years...I am in awe. This award doesn't really apply to me as much as what's happening in our industry today: women em- powerment, women in leadership and in real estate. It is truly part of my appreciation that we acknowledge the importance of making sure we all have an even playing field and equal opportunity." Designed specifically for a select group of 125 broker/ owners, brand executives and real estate service lead- ers, the Real Estate Newsmaker Awards Reception & Dinner was an invitation-only event. The event was pre- sented by master sponsor the National Association of REALTORS® and host sponsors Elm Street Technology, HMS Home Warranty, PlanOmatic, Realtors Property Re- source® (RPR®) , Sherri Johnson Coaching & Consulting, ShowingTime and zipLogix™.
