BELLEVUE, Wash., Feb. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Constellation Real Estate Group (CREG) is proud to announce that its executive leaders Scott Smith and Tom George have both been named among RISMedia's 2021 Newsmakers, a dynamic group of key influencers making headlines as a result of their newsworthy contributions to the real estate industry, and their efforts to positively affect the consumers and communities they serve.
"Every year, we're amazed by the incredible ingenuity and success of members in the real estate community, ranging from the glass ceilings being shattered by industry leaders, to the creativity and innovation being implemented at a record pace, and all the way to the wonderful charitable work being accomplished across the nation," said John Featherston, CEO, president and publisher of RISMedia.

Help us in celebrating their hard-earned recognition."
Smith, recognized as a Trailblazer | Agent of Change, drives organic and strategic growth across the Constellation portfolio of 19 market-leading technology companies in the real estate, mortgage, and franchise verticals. Amid global uncertainty ushered by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Smith led 19 companies and over 500 employees to record-breaking success, completed four acquisitions, and entered a new vertical – all completed and integrated remotely.

"In the face of the pandemic, we remain committed to being the technology partner-of-choice to the fragmented industries we serve," said George. "it's a privilege to be named alongside others committed to making contributions that positively impact our industry."
Despite headwinds from the pandemic, George and Smith took the Constellation Real Estate Group into a new vertical with the acquisition of Enspire for Enterprise, along with two additional acquisitions in the residential real estate vertical.
