Agent Genius, one of the most widely read real estate blogs, scoured the industry news from 2010 to find what it calls the "Genius 30-Real Estate's Power Moves of 2010." Among them is Bob Hale for the launch of HAR's REALTOR(r) Match. Agent Genius said, "We believe other boards in 2011 will attempt their own versions of Realtor Match as Zillow and others launch ratings and they are accepted as an inevitability. HAR was just ahead of the curve."
Others on the list include Keller Williams Realty CEO Mark Willis for standing up to Fannie Mae regarding REO listings, Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff for partnering with Yahoo! Real Estate and announcing plans to take the company public, NAR CEO Dale Stinton for making sexual orientation a protected class, Apple CEO Steve Jobs for the introduction of the iPad, and Google CEO Eric Schmidt for beginning to photograph the interiors of buildings.

Following on Bob being listed as one of the choices for Person of the Year by NAR, this is another great honor for HAR and our members. (BTW,you can still vote for Bob at:
He's in the lead with 35.4% of the votes, but extra votes always help. For those of you in the HAR building, it only registers votes once per IP address so it thinks we are all the same person so only one vote is allowed for the entirety of the staff at the HAR building...so vote when you get home or use your web-enabled phone to place the vote.)
