Here’s a more in-depth look at some of the panelists. Look for more profiles in next Monday’s edition of the news.
As broker/owner of RE/MAX Properties, Inc., Joe Clement attributes part of the company’s ability to survive the current market conditions to his agents being able to handle distressed property sales which represent nearly 35% of the current sales in Colorado Springs. Having been involved in real estate since 1977, Clement has been consistently recognized within the RE/MAX system, receiving the RE/MAX Hall of Fame Award, Distinguished Service Award, Lifetime Achievement Award and being recognized as Broker/Owner of the Year. Last year, Clement and his son Tony who make up The Clement Team, did over $21 million in sales.
Todd Hetherington is CEO of NM Management, Inc., the parent company of Century 21 New Millennium, one of the top ranked Century 21 firms in the country for gross closed commissions. In addition to leading the company along with his business partner, Mary Lynn Stone, Hetherington’s duties involve overseeing the core service companies that support the 525 agents and $1.3 billion in annual real estate sales volume. His proudest professional accomplishment is the unparalleled leadership cadre that he and Stone have been fortunate enough to assemble.
As Chairman of the Board for Better Homes and Gardens Mason-McDuffie Real Estate, Ed Krafchow has been instrumental in the company’s remarkable growth. Krafchow has been closely involved in the development of the company’s proprietary WebTop Intranet, a technology platform that has generated leads and created efficient business processes for his sales associates. Mindful of the changing needs of consumers, Krafchow led his company to a full integration of online transaction management and esignatures in 2010. Krafchow is a frequent national speaker and has been identified by the California Association of REALTORS® as one of California’s top brokers.
