In the dynamic world of real estate, where challenges often emerge from every corner, it’s genuinely uplifting to see individuals who weather the storm and inspire others to soar to greater heights. Today, we’re thrilled to celebrate one such luminary, Josh Harley, Founder of Fathom Inc., who has been recognized as a 2024 Real Estate Newsmaker in the Futurist category by RISMedia.

A Visionary Leader

Josh’s journey to becoming a 2024 RISMedia Real Estate Newsmaker was a personal achievement and testament to his visionary leadership and unwavering commitment to the real estate industry. With more than 300 individuals selected for this prestigious honor, Josh stands out as a beacon of inspiration.

Josh’s incredible career has been defined by a deep-seated passion for helping others achieve their full potential. He aptly says, “The most rewarding part of my career has not been recognition or money. It has been watching others grow to their full potential. It has been awe-inspiring to help change the lives of so many of our agents. I realized long ago that if you are unsure what your calling is, start by serving others, and you will quickly know the answer. We are called to serve, and when you answer that calling, not only are you helping others, but you will also be rewarded with far more than money or fame.”

A Year of Triumph and Transformation

Josh’s tenure as CEO of Fathom Inc. may have ended in 2023, but he left an indelible mark on the company and the industry. Despite the real estate industry’s headwinds, he oversaw an impressive expansion of Fathom’s network and agent count, ensuring a solid foundation for future leaders. His resilience and vision in the face of adversity are a testament to his leadership.

Inspiring the Industry

John Featherston, Founder and CEO of RISMedia, rightly pointed out the incredible accomplishments of real estate professionals nationwide. “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 2024 Newsmakers is no exception. From the creativity and innovation being implemented through the shifting and challenging 2023 market, 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, more than 300 of whom we are honoring on our seventh year of publishing Real Estate Newsmakers,” said Featherston. 

“We are so proud every year to recognize the hard work, dedication, and determination of these finest industry professionals—the 2024 Real Estate Newsmakers—who went above and beyond in 2023 amid the challenges and opportunities of this evolving market. Help us in celebrating their hard-earned recognition,” Featherston added.

The recipients will be recognized at the Newsmakers Reception & Dinner, which will take place on September 5, 2024, during RISMedia’s CEO & Leadership Exchange in Washington, D.C. The event promises to celebrate visionary leaders like Josh, who inspire us all.

As we celebrate Josh Harley’s recognition as a RISMedia 2024 Real Estate Newsmaker, let us remember that success in the real estate industry is not just about buying and selling properties. It’s about making a positive impact, serving others, and paving the way for a brighter future. Congratulations to Josh for this well-deserved honor, and may his example continue to inspire us all as we embark on another year of real estate opportunities and challenges!
