Memphis, Tenn: Crye-Leike Real Estate Services announces that Harold Crye, its co-founder and chief executive officer, and Steve Brown, its president of residential sales, have been named to the 2021 Swanepoel Power 200 list. 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."

The T3 Group evaluates leaders based on their personal influence, tenure, decision-making power, involvements within the industry and future impact on the business, all factors that go well beyond the size and financial success of the companies they lead.

Crye, who has consecutively made the list for many years, was ranked 46th, with Brown ranking for the second year at 164th, in part for his involvement as chairman of the board for The Realty Alliance.

"It's always an honor being recognized on the Swanepoel Power 200 List," said Crye. "I am glad that I once again get to share that honor with a fellow colleague and friend, Steve Brown. We will continue to work hard for this company in 2021 and grow our presence in this industry."

Due to supportive leadership, agent responsiveness and client loyalty, Crye-Leike set record company sales in 2020, generating over $7.5 billion in sales volume. For more information regarding real estate in and around the Mid-South, please visit
