—Honorees Recognized as the Top 100 Executives in the U.S. Housing Industry—

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., October 11, 2023 — REcolorado®, Colorado’s largest real estate multiple listing service, today announced REcolorado President and CEO Gene Millman was named a 2023 HousingWire Vanguard. Annually, HousingWire recognizes 100 individuals who have made significant contributions to the advancement of the housing industry. The award is among the most highly regarded honors in the housing industry.

“The Vanguards award spotlights exceptional c-suite leaders in the housing sector — individuals who continually drive innovation and adapt resiliently in the face of economic challenges,” said Clayton Collins, CEO of HW Media. “This year’s honorees have demonstrated a razor-sharp commitment to their organization’s objectives, astutely identifying and capitalizing on opportunities as they arise, steadfastly refusing to accept the ordinary.”

The select group of people was recognized this year by HousingWire’s selection committee for their influential work at their companies and the transformative way in which they are positively impacting the U.S. housing industry. 

“I am honored that HousingWire has selected me as a leader in the real estate industry,” said Millman. “This award is a testament to dedication the entire REcolorado team has to truly engage with our subscribers, listen to their feedback, and then follow through and follow up. Our goal is our subscribers’ success. When they succeed, we know we’re succeeding.”

Under Millman’s leadership, REcolorado’s customer-centric mentality was cemented this year with the launch of its Collective Intelligence initiative, which formalized the process the company now employs for actively connecting with subscribers and real estate professionals. Using feedback as a guide, REcolorado developed solutions and enhanced services through collaborative projects with partners, including Nestfully, SkySlope, Lundy, Georgia’s First MLS, the MLS Grid, and REdistribute.

“At the end of the day, we exist to serve our subscribers and be good stewards of their data so they can focus on being the expert home buyers, sellers, and renters rely on,” said Millman. “Each innovation we develop, partnership we form, and service we provide represents an opportunity for the company to push boundaries and exceed dated conceptions of what an MLS can provide the real estate market.”
