Inman News, January 1, 2017

The Inman Influencers List salutes industry professionals who shape, change and influence the industry. They bring a mix of credentials, viewpoints and backgrounds from all walks of the real estate business. Some are creative, intuitive and gifted. Some have power, reach and charisma. And some are controversial, rabble-rousers and disrupters. …

“They are not cut from the same cloth, they do not speak the same language and they do not always necessarily share the same values. But they influence the industry by their work, through their followers and by expressing their opinions,” said Inman publisher Brad Inman.

HomesUSA.com President Ben Caballero has been the country’s top producer in sales and transaction dollars for the past six years. With 2,491 home sales totaling $1.022 billion in volume in 2016 and more than 13,000 home sales for more than $4.3 billion between 2010 and 2015, Caballero credits his success to an online listing platform he developed that streamlines the MLS marketing process for homebuilders, charging a flat fee instead of commission. The former homebuilder says nearly all of his transactions are new homes.
