Scout is pleased to announce that one of its top executives has been included in the respected RISMedia Real Estate Newsmaker list - a group of influential leaders in the real estate industry who have made impactful contributions to their clients and the local communities they serve.

In this year's Real Estate Newsmakers Showcase from RISMedia, over 300 individuals from the real estate industry were recognized for their achievements and contributions. Our readers nominated these 'real estate champions' who come from a variety of backgrounds including brokers, agents, executives, technologists and educators, highlighting the importance of collaboration in achieving successful outcomes.

“It’s always so inspiring to see the incredible accomplishments of so many real estate professionals around the country and this year’s group of 2023 Newsmakers takes that concept to a whole new level.
