Real Estate Almanac

2024 SP 200

Released annually in January, the Swanepoel Power 200 (SP 200) ranks the most powerful and influential executives in the residential real estate brokerage industry.
Executives Legend
The color legend to the right illustrates the various backgrounds for the top executives in the residential real estate industry.

The Swanepoel Power 200 ranks the most powerful leaders in the residential real estate brokerage industry as 2024 kicks off. Criteria used to rank leaders include the scope and power of leaders’ positions, the financial resources they have at their disposal, whether they have equity stake in their company, their trajectory and much more. For a detailed description of the careful methodology T3 Sixty used to determine the rankings, please see the methodology here.

The SP 200 reflects the relative power of leaders in the industry and is not a company ranking. Size and sales volume listed in bios provide framing and, while used to determine ranking, were just part of the data considered. Note that the numbers used in many of the bios reflect full-year 2022 data, as those are the only available across the board for all companies. Most companies have not completed their 2023 financials. When they do this spring, T3 Sixty will publish its annual ranking of the industry’s largest brokerages, brands and enterprises.
