Ron J Peltier, the Chairman and CEO of HomeServices of America at the 2013 T3 Summit

Peltier, the man atop the second largest brokerage in the U.S. leveraged his affiliation with Berkshire Hathaway to the hilt in 2013. He is strategically brilliant and has played a “chess game” from the day he entered the real estate industry, culminating in a huge win when he orchestrated the biggest industry acquisition in recent times, grabbing two top 10 franchise networks at the same time—Prudential and Real Living.
