The prestigious list, which appears in the February 2021 issue of RISMedia’s Real Estate magazine, recognizes a dynamic group of real estate professionals for their newsworthy contributions to the real estate industry, and their efforts to positively affect the consumers and communities they serve.

The 2021 class of Real Estate Newsmakers honors nearly 300 industry members, including Scavone who earned a spot on the list for the third straight year.

“It truly is an honor to be recognized for the positive effect the Weichert national franchise system has on our industry and the consumers served throughout the country,” said Scavone.

Scavone’s recognition comes on the heels of Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. being named to Franchise Business Review’s “Top 200 Best Franchises” list and Entrepreneur’s “Franchise 500” list earlier this year.

Early in 2020, the company rolled out myWeichert® powered by kvCORE, a comprehensive smart technology platform that helps agents increase efficiency, raise productivity and generate their own leads.

“This past year certainly presented its share of challenges, but I’m proud of the way our leadership team and support staff were able to answer the call and continue to provide exceptional service for our affiliates,” added Scavone. “This recognition further validates our ability as an organization to continually evolve and offer new, innovative solutions to help our franchise owners and their agents thrive.”

As head of Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc., Scavone oversees more than 350 affiliate offices in 41 states, representing smart entrepreneurs who were interested in joining a nationally recognized brand which offers industry-leading technology, tools, training and support to set them apart from the competition.
