HomeSmart International CEO and Founder Matt Widdows was listed on the 2017 Swanepoel Power 200 (SP 200) along with Ashley Bowers, president and COO of HomeSmart International.

The SP 200 annually ranks the top “Power Players” in the residential real estate industry and publishes 10 categories covering Corporate Executives, Power Brokers, Technology Executives, Women Leaders, Association/MLS Executives, Outsider Powers, Trendsetters, Social Influencers, Emerging Leaders and the overall SP 200.

Widdows increased his ranking by four spots to come in at No. 25 for this year, after being named on the list for several consecutive years. His listing this year makes him the highest-ranking leader included in the list from Arizona.

“My inclusion in this prestigious annual ranking is thanks, in large part, to the teams of dedicated staff, brokers and agents that support my companies and me daily,” said Widdows.

Bowers, HomeSmart International’s president and COO, was named to the SP 200 Trendsetters list. This was her first time making the list. Bowers joined HomeSmart International in 2013.

“It’s always humbling to be included in a list like the SP 200 and I am grateful for the opportunity to work with a fantastic team and for a visionary leader like [Widdows],” said Bowers.

This year more than 3,000 leaders were reviewed and researched, resulting in a total of 283 listed across the 10 SP 200 categories. Widdows was also ranked No. 15 in the Corporate Executives category of the SP 200.
