IRVINE, Calif. — Feb. 9, 2021 — ATTOM, curator of the nation’s premier property database, today announced its CEO, Rob Barber, and Chief Product & Technology Officer, Todd Teta, have been selected as 2021 Real Estate Newsmakers by RISMedia. The 2021 RISMedia Real Estate Newsmakers are a dynamic group of key influencers making headlines as a result of their newsworthy contributions to the real estate industry, and for their efforts to positively affect the consumers and communities they serve.

Barber, a three-time Real Estate Newsmaker award recipient, has once again earned this recognition for leading ATTOM to achieve its unique position as the one-stop shop for comprehensive property data, powering innovation across a wide range of industries. This year, Rob has earned the title of Achiever for his success story at ATTOM. As a 2021 honoree, despite the onslaught of challenges presented in 2020 due to the Coronavirus health crisis, Barber has continued to make the news for his positive industry-wide contributions.

Since the onset of the pandemic, under Barber’s leadership, ATTOM has invested in providing housing market updates and real-world solutions to understand and address the challenges presented by the COVID-19 crisis. Adds Barber, “We are trying to provide a rising tide in the industry and create an ecosystem in which hundreds of companies are set up for success in rapidly turning their vision into reality. The industry is benefiting from our success as an honest, transparent data partner to entrepreneurs who have a vision and want to build solutions today that impact tomorrow.”

Teta joins this year’s exclusive group of thought leaders who have made newsworthy contributions to the real estate industry. Honored this year as an industry Influencer, Teta is responsible for driving product development and tech innovation at ATTOM, while building teams to scale the business. The company’s recent tech-led strategic initiatives designed to bring more robust real estate data to the marketplace, include the acquisition of Onboard Informatics in 2018 and Home Junction, Inc. in 2020.

“I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to feed my passions in both real estate and technology throughout my career. Nowhere has this ever been more possible than at ATTOM,” Teta says. “We are guided by our internal philosophy, which encourages ingenuity, innovation, perseverance, accountability and much more, but at the core, we are driven by our passion for data innovation. In many measures, it’s this passion that has shaped our influence and thought leadership within the industry and has made my role at ATTOM much easier than it otherwise might have been.”

Barber and Teta are featured in the February issue of RISMedia. Says John Featherston, founder, president and CEO of RISMedia, “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. 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.
