Fathom Holdings, Inc. is thrilled to announce that Josh Harley, Founder, and CEO has been selected as an RISMedia 2023 Real Estate Newsmaker—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. 

Harley was recognized in the Luminaries category also known as “The Iconic Leaders.” Founders, CEOs and executives who have dedicated their lives to the betterment of their companies, agents and the industry to reach new heights.

RISMedia, the leader in U.S. real estate news and information services, announced its more than 300 Real Estate Newsmakers on February 1, 2023, in both an online directory on and in the February issue of its flagship publication, Real Estate magazine. The honorees were nominated in 2022 by RISMedia readers and editors.

“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. We are so proud every year to recognize the hard work, dedication and determination of these finest industry professionals…who went above and beyond in 2022 amid the challenges and opportunities of this historic market. Help us celebrate their hard-earned recognition,” said John Featherston, Founder, CEO and publisher of RISMedia.

In a year of constant market fluctuation, Harley led Fathom Realty through the downturn to achieve tremendous growth. By the end of the second quarter of 2022, the company showed a 52% growth in revenue, 32% transaction growth, and an agent growth rate of 38%.

Harley was also awarded the prestigious Icon Award from DFW Real Producers, a community of the top 2,000 producing real estate agents, leaders, and vetted businesses in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, during the Annual ESPE Awards Gala. He was one of five finalists among top industry leaders in the region.

“As an industry, we have an amazing opportunity to touch the lives of so many people,” says Harley. “Leaders must lead by example, and I strive daily to live by Fathom’s culture of servant leadership for our agents, employees, and home buyers and sellers. It is validating to be recognized for these efforts.”

“Our 2023 Real Estate Newsmakers are a shining example of not letting market conditions dictate the future but taking control of your own story instead. Congratulations to our 2023 Hall of Fame and to all of our Newsmaker honorees. We are grateful for your leadership and inspired by the example you set,” concludes the RISMedia editors.
