The list is the definitive ranking of residential real estates' top leaders, produced and published annually by the Swanepoel T3 Group.

According to the T3 Group, "To produce the report each year we invest over 400 hours of research, hold countless internal debates, perform a deep analysis of numbers and organizational charts, and candidly question what power actually means."

Factors that are considered go well beyond the size and financial success of the companies they lead, with leaders being evaluated based on their personal influence, tenure, decision-making power, involvements within the industry, and future impact on the business.

Crye, who has consecutively made the list, was ranked 39th this year, with Brown ranking for the first time, in part for being Chair of The Realty Alliance.

"It's always an honor being recognized on the Swanepoel Power 200 List," said Crye. "This year, I get to share that honor with a fellow colleague and friend, Steve Brown. We will continue to work hard for this company in 2020 and grow our presence in this industry."
