Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

The 2022 Swanepoel Power 200 list

The SP200 list is out today. You can argue the logic/criteria of these lists but I find them great for conversation and discussion. I have to say that overall the top 10 is not what I expected. When I think back to 2021 I don’t think “Wow…Gary Keller is really killing it and making the moves.” I would still say, as much as nobody wants to hear it, Rich Barton of Zillow is still the one everyone is watching.

Art Carter #30

By my count 15, MLS executives made the list. That’s down from previous years. Art Carter, CEO of CRMLS, moved into the top spot at #30. Bob Hale, CEO of HAR came in at #32, Brian Donnellan, CEO of Bright MLS at #52, Teresa King Kenney, CEO of Miami Assn. of REALTORS at #69, John DiMichele, CEO of TREB at 78, Merri Jo Cowen, CEO of Stellar MLS at 87 (up from #96 last year), Rebecca Jensen, CEO of MRED at #97.

Jeremy Crawford, CEO of FMLS at #111 (biggest mover, up from #165 last year).

Matt Consalvo, CEO of ARMLS #120, Dionna Hall, CEO of Beaches MLS at #125, Jim Speer, CEO of OneKey MLS at #134, Emily Chenevert, CEO of Austin Board of REALTORS at #155, Tom Hurdelbrink, CEO of Northwest MLS at #170, Brad Bjelke, CEO of UtahRealEstate.com at #178, Chris Carrillo, CEO of Metro MLS at #182 and AnneMarie DeCatsye, CEO of Canopy MLS at #192.

Jimmy Kelly #58

After acquiring 4 companies in 2021, Jimmy Kelly, CEO of Lone Wolf Technologies‘ first appearance on the list came in at #58 (he is going to hate that I featured him on my blog). Congrats Jimmy! 😇

Other notable vendors include Prem Luthra, CEO of Elm Street Technology at #107, Ben Graboske, president of Data & Analytics, Black Knight at #112, Michael Wurzer, CEO of FBS at #122, and Charles Drouin, CEO Prospect Software at #184.

Curious that nobody from CoreLogic appears on the list.

Other notables include Sam DeBord, CEO of RESO at #160, Denee Evans, CEO of CMLS at #179.

Natalia Karayaneva, CEO of Propy, and the biggest voice talking blockchain and crypto in real estate is the first signal of these technologies entering into our collective headspace.

Congrats to everyone! Message me if I missed anything and sorry for any typos.
