Inman Influencers

The impact of the annual reveal of both the Inman Influencer List and the Swanepoel Power 200 is like a social media cannon shot: you can hear the buzz everywhere. The fact that this year, these leadership lists were released nearly simultaneously makes the buzz near deafening. The rush you get seeing your name on either – and in some cases, both – of these prestigious lists never gets old. And nor does the surprise of discovering those who are “missing” – exceptionally worthy influencers and incredibly powerful leaders who didn’t make either list. For many, it must be a personal downer because you can almost feel the entire real estate industry all at once clamoring to click-through these lists to discover who is and is not being recognized this year. Most importantly to the WAV Group – and our sister company RE Technology – are the leaders of companies we work with who have been honored by inclusion on these lists. We are deeply humbled to be included as well. Once again, WAV Group Founder Victor Lund and Marilyn Wilson are recognized by inclusion on the Swanepoel Power 200 as two of the most powerful and influential people in real estate. Victor also lands again on the 2017 Inman Influencers list, and for the first time, Kevin Hawkins, a 30-year communications and marketing veteran who heads up WAV Group Communications division, also is a 2017 Inman Influencer. But our enthusiastic congratulations go to the change-makers we are proud to represent, both current and past clients. For the 2017 Inman Influencers, these industry stalwarts include Mark McLaughlin (Pacific Union), Bob Hale (HAR), Pam O’Connor, Paul Boomsma and Stephanie Pfeffer Anton (Leading RE), Chris Bennett (CoreLogic), Joseph Rand (Rand Realty), Keith Krach and Glenn Shimkus (DocuSign), Ryan O’Hara, Marci James, Luke Glass and Brandi Friedland (Move), Art Carter (Chair of RESO and head of CRMLS), Jeremy Crawford (RESO), Joel Singer and Leslie Appleton-Young (CAR), Guy Wolcott (Homesnap), Susan McHan (Opes Advisors), Ben Caballero (, Spencer Rascoff, Amy Bohutinsky, Greg Schwartz, Jay Thompson, Errol Samuelson and Alissa Harper (Zillow Group), Laura Monroe (RealSatisfied), Jim Harrison (MLSListings), John “OB” Jacobi, Anne Jones and Marguerite Giguere (Windermere Real Estate), York Baur (Moxi Works), Jed Carlson (Adwerx), John Aaroe (John Aaroe Group), Marty Frame (RPR), Cindy Ariosa (Long and Foster and MRIS), David Charron (MRIS), Seth Price and Frederick Townes (Placester), Pace Davis (Bridge Interactive), […]
