Proptech CEO recognized among an exclusive group of industry leaders who have made newsworthy contributions to the real estate industry

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 16, 2023 — Percy, maker of market intelligence-driven client engagement tools for real estate brokers and mortgage lenders, today announced that CEO Charles Williams has been named an RISMedia 2023 Real Estate Newsmaker. Williams was honored in the Futurist category for innovation in the property technology (proptech) field that has enabled real estate brokerages to close more deals and strengthen client relationships. 

The Real Estate Newsmakers award program recognizes housing leaders who have made newsworthy contributions to the real estate industry and have positively impacted the communities they serve. RISMedia editors named six categories of winners: Influencers, Trailblazers, Futurists, Achievers, Crusaders and Luminaries. In past years, Williams was recognized in the Influencer, Futurist and Trailblazer categories. 

“It’s always so inspiring to see the incredible accomplishments of so many real estate professionals around the country, and this year’s group of 2023 Newsmakers takes that concept to a whole new level,” said John Featherston, founder, CEO and publisher of RISMedia. “From the creativity and innovation being implemented through our changing times, to industry records being broken, to the wonderful charitable work being done across the nation, we continue to be amazed by the ingenuity and success of these real estate professionals, over 300 of whom we are honoring on our sixth year of publishing Real Estate Newsmakers.”

“As a third-generation real estate professional, I’ve witnessed firsthand the hoops that real estate agents and loan officers jump through to identify high-intent home buyers and sellers. That’s why is focused on delivering solutions to help agents and loan officers engage and retain the valuable homeowner relationship,” said Williams. “Receiving RISMedia’s Newsmaker award for the fourth year is an honor that would not be possible without the backing of a team that is passionate about empowering the real estate industry with state-of-the-art tools that harness the power of behavioral data to drive revenue.” 

RISMedia will honor 2023 Real Estate Newsmakers at a September 6 event held in conjunction with its 2023 CEO & Leadership Exchange. The complete list of 2023 Real Estate Newsmakers can be viewed in RISMedia’s online directory or in the February issue of Real Estate magazine.
