DENVER – Peter Niederman, Chief Executive Officer of Kentwood Real Estate, has been recognized as one of the 200 most powerful people in residential real estate for 2017 by the Swanepoel Power 200 (SP200), an annual list of the most powerful and influential real estate leaders in North America. The SP200 is the definitive ranking of residential real estate’s top leaders and published annually by the Swanepoel T3 Group. The list is regarded as the most comprehensive list of influential CEOs, thought leaders and senior executives ever assembled in the residential real estate brokerage business.
The SP200 is the definitive ranking of the leaders and executives in the residential real estate industry. The SP200 team invests more than 400 hours analyzing hundreds of bios, annual reports and transactions and sales volume data. Swanepoel sends hundreds of requests for additional information, personally verifying announcements, stats and actions that took place over the past year. The SP200 team then spends several days in a room deliberating who, what and why.
The SP200 list stands as a milestone analysis of the multidisciplinary real estate industry and is released in a 52-page printed version and online at www.sp200.com. Leaders are evaluated based on their personal influence, tenure, office, decision-making power, the financial resources at their disposal, their company or organization’s industry influence, and geographical reach. Peter Niederman was ranked 177th in this year’s SP200.
“This is a prestigious honor and one that also recognizes the extraordinary achievements of our top producing brokers at Kentwood Real Estate,” said Niederman. “To be included in the SP200 is a direct result of old fashioned hard work and a sincere dedication to being the best of the best in the real estate business. We strive diligently to provide superior customer service and to utilize the latest technology available in the industry. I also believe that this recognition represents our commitment to giving back to the communities who fueled our success. This recognition provides an incentive to achieve even higher goals in the years to come.”
