Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett

Chairman and CEO, 
Berkshire Hathaway
The revered investor continues to make the industry’s most powerful outside influencers list due to his oversight of Berkshire Hathaway, the parent company of HomeServices of America (HSA), one of the nation’s largest real estate holding companies. In 2023, he also made moves in housing by investing in the nation’s largest and second-largest homebuilders (D.R. Horton and Lennar, respectively) as well as NVR. Analysts hope to see the Oracle of Omaha’s bet will pay off in improved housing starts for 2024.
