Visit my ActiveRain entry Real Living is an Inman Innovator Finalist Again for the links to the above sites … if you want to check them out. I forgot they would not copy as links here. I believe Real Living was an Inman Innovator finalist in 2005 and 2006 and won for Most Innovative Brokerage in 2005. I think. Real Living won an Inman Innovator award one year anyway….
The announcement from Inman News says:
“The Inman Innovator Awards recognize companies that use technology and innovation to enhance the real estate transaction and experience for consumers and real estate professionals. In addition, one individual who embodies the spirit of innovation in real estate is honored each year.”
Real Living is based in Columbus Ohio. Real Living has offices in 19 states now. It should be 20 by the end of June, I believe. Real Living in Central Ohio is known as Real Living HER. HER is pronounced H. E. R. and is Harley E. Rouda Sr’s initials. Harley E. Rouda Jr. is the CEO of Real Living.
Real Living’s expansion was featured in the Columbus Dispatch recently.
