Anthony Lamacchiarismedia crusader 2021 has been selected as an RISMedia 2021 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.

“I’m honored to be included in this list of top-notch industry professionals who are dedicated to contributing and shaping this industry.  I’m very thankful to once again be recognized by RISMedia as a Newsmaker Crusader this year.” – Anthony Lamacchia, CEO/Broker of Lamacchia Realty

RISMedia’s 2021 Real Estate Newsmakers were nominated in 2020 by RISMedia readers and editors and are showcased in the following categories: Influencers, Trailblazers, Futurists, Achievers, Crusaders, Inspirations, Luminaries and Trendsetters.  Anthony was selected as a Crusader for his leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic in which he trained not only agents in his company, but publicly released live trainings, real estate market updates, and public safety showing protocols once the industry was deemed essential.  On top of this contribution and leadership, he supported his agents by lowering fees, raising splits, and eliminating contracts.

“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. “This year, more than ever, we are proud to recognize the hard work, dedication and determination of real estate’s finest professionals—the 2021 Real Estate Newsmakers—who went above and beyond in 2020 even amid a turbulent time for the industry, and the world, facing the challenges head-on and without fear. Help us in celebrating their hard-earned recognition.”

RISMedia is hoping to honor this year’s Real Estate Newsmakers, including the 2021 Hall of Fame, at a live event later in the year. The company is monitoring the appropriateness of this related to the status of the health crisis. In past years, RISMedia has honored the group at the company’s Real Estate Newsmakers Reception & Dinner at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
