A huge part of finding success this year was the ability to work with speed, communication and flexibility. Since that was already the foundation that Rick Rudman had built his company on, it was only fitting that 2021 was a banner year for him and Curbio. Vastly expanding the kinds of repairs and services offered to mesh with the needs of a roaring market and forming huge new partnerships with real estate giants like eXp and HomeServices of America showed that Rudman had his finger on the pulse of the industry, offering unparalleled value in a time when real estate professionals need to adapt on a daily basis.
But Rudman says his biggest accomplishment this year was how he led his own company—creating a culture that prioritized safety and raising $25 million to ensure its future growth. “We’ve modernized the decades-old home improvement industry to help Realtors and homeowners close $2 trillion a year in home sales quickly, simply and profitably,” he says.
