At PLACE, Chris Stuart has made it his mission to understand the real estate industry at a fundamental level—not just broadly, but also on an everyday level, scrutinizing the evolutions and nuances which agents must constantly adapt to. While his business is to provide end-to-end technology solutions, Stuart’s insight extends far beyond this realm. In 2021, he published a book, Real Estate Influence, which brought the wisdom and experience of a storied real estate career, along with deeply relevant industry vision, to a tremendous new audience. As the real estate landscape changes inexorably, this year Stuart stepped forward to provide a guiding light to agents everywhere.
“Our industry is at an inflection point,” he says. “My goal is to challenge conventional wisdom and share tactical insights that help real estate professionals overcome these challenges and not just gain but sustain their influence through education, skills and value.“
