Ed Krafchow, chairman of the board for Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Mason-McDuffie, was named the 2012 recipient of RISMedia’s Real Estate Leadership Award, sponsored by Citibank. Krafchow accepted the award at RISMedia’s 17th Annual Power Broker Dinner on November 9 in Orlando, Fla., held in conjunction with the REALTORS® Conference & Expo.

The RISMedia Real Estate Leadership Award honors a member of the real estate community who embraces innovation and demonstrates resilience in order to facilitate success for real estate professionals and consumers alike.

“The individuals who were nominated for this award were chosen for their commitment to consistently blazing new paths in real estate,” said John Featherston, publisher and CEO of RISMedia. “Ed Krafchow has long exemplified innovation and leadership in real estate and is an inspiration for his peers, brokers and sales associates. We are thrilled to present Ed with this year’s Real Estate Leadership Award.”

“I am humbled, and accept this honor on behalf of the agents, managers, and employees of Mason-McDuffie Real Estate,” said Krafchow.

Mason-McDuffie has seen remarkable growth under Krafchow’s leadership. In 1991, the company’s 21 offices housed 565 agents and closed less than $1 billion in sales annually. Since then, the company has grown to over $3 billion in annual sales, with more than 2,000 agents and 40 offices.

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 on several industry-related topics, and has been identified by the California Association of REALTORS® as one of California’s top brokers and recognized as a technological leader by the Employee Relocation Council. He has consulted on a national as well as local level with many Multiple Listing Services (MLS) as well as strategic real estate planning groups.

Fred Bolstad, managing director of Citibank’s Retail Lending channel, presented Krafchow with the award during RISMedia’s Power Broker Dinner, held at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, Fla. The Power Broker Dinner honors the industry’s top brokers, as determined by the results of RISMedia’s Annual Power Broker Report & Survey.
