MacLean recognized by Inman News as Top Influential Leader in Real Estate
NORFOLK, VA – December 23, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — For Rent Media Solutions™ (FRMS), a leading resource for apartment searches nationwide and a division of Dominion Enterprises, today announced the selection of Senior Vice President Brock MacLean as one of the year’s Most Influential Real Estate Leaders by Inman News.
Inman News, a leading source of independent real estate news, information, advice, research, opinion and commentary for industry professionals and consumers alike, produces the Inman 100 report each year. This annual list recognizes the Most Influential Real Estate Leaders who embody leadership, ingenuity, strength, conviction, power, persistence, perseverance and progress.
MacLean, an 18-year veteran in the multifamily housing industry, also acts as the executive vice president of Dominion Homes Media. According to the Inman website, MacLean was selected along with other top industry leaders whose, “…voices and actions can move the industry toward change.”
The list is broken up into categories, with MacLean listed under “Technology,” which is fitting considering some of his recent accomplishments that include being instrumental in securing For Rent Media Solutions’ exclusive partnership with Oodle’s Marketplace on Facebook in early 2011. MacLean, along with Dominion Homes Media President Terry Slattery, is also responsible for consolidating five real estate technology brands from Dominion Enterprises—eNeighborhoods, AgentAdvantage, Advanced Access, Number1Expert and Homes.com—under the umbrella of Homes Media Solutions.
“Separately, Homes.com and ForRent.com are viable forces within the multifamily real estate industry because they both offer their respective customers an affordable, robust and technologically-advanced product line,” says MacLean. “Now that the companies have fused resources and are partnering with some powerhouse social media management agencies, their nets can be cast wider than ever before to offer clients opportunities that haven’t existed in our industry up until now.”
“Brock’s vision is focused on cutting-edge technology solutions and empowering the teams that run these businesses to get things done rapidly,” says Slattery. “Inman’s Most Influential Real Estate Leaders brings together the top leaders that are moving the real estate industry forward, and I am pleased to see Brock recognized for the breadth of knowledge and ingenuity he brings to the industry and our customers each day.”
