IRVINE, Calif. — Feb. 7, 2022 — ATTOM, a leading curator of real estate data nationwide for land and property data, today announced that once again its CEO, Rob Barber, and Chief Product & Technology Officer, Todd Teta, have been named Real Estate Newsmakers by RISMedia for 2022.

The 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 their efforts to positively affect the consumers and communities they serve.

RISMedia, the leader in U.S. real estate news and information services, announced its more than 300, 2022 Real Estate Newsmakers on Feb. 1, in both an online directory on and in the February issue of its flagship publication, Real Estate magazine. RISMedia’s 2022 Real Estate Newsmakers were nominated in 2021 by RISMedia readers and editors and are showcased in the following categories: Influencers, Trailblazers, Futurists, Achievers, Crusaders, Motivators, Luminaries and Trendsetters.

Barber, a four-time Real Estate Newsmaker award recipient, is recognized for showcasing the company’s commitment to being one of the strongest consumer resources for real estate data solutions, impacting decisions, innovation and profits. ATTOM’s portfolio offerings, advanced technology developments and partnerships attained through mergers and acquisitions under Barber’s leadership, have demonstrated that commitment. Barber brings a unique culture to the company, positioning ATTOM as the most comprehensive property data provider, while maintaining its mission to serve as a transformative organization that fuels innovation, growth and strategy for its customers.

“The industry is benefiting from our success as an honest, transparent data partner to entrepreneurs who have their own vision and want to build solutions today that impact tomorrow,” notes Barber. “We are trying to promote a rising tide in our industry and fuel a vibrant ecosystem in which thousands of companies are becoming successful in turning their vision into reality.”

Teta, named a Real Estate Newsmaker for the second consecutive year, is charged with guiding the incredibly complex and nuanced marriage between technology and analytics. Teta gave the industry reliable insights into the unprecedented chaos of 2021. Adding a cloud-based solution to the sometimes burdensome size and scope of proprietary datasets, Teta was able to streamline the ability of stakeholders to access, understand and react to the insights that ATTOM provides. This technology also has the flexibility to scale, offering incredible power and value to every stakeholder, and brokerages both large and small. Going even further, Teta has also led the development of artificial intelligence tools this year that can analyze risks, identify profitable projects and guide industry trend-makers toward a better future.

“At the core, it was trust in teammates that allowed us to succeed over the past year,” Teta says. “It has also reminded me that my success is only a function of how successful I help my teams become.”

“From records being broken, to the glass ceilings being shattered and the creativity and technology innovation being implemented through our changing times, to the always-inspiring and wonderful charitable work being done across the nation, we continue to be amazed by the incredible ingenuity and success of the professionals in the real estate community, over 300 of whom we are celebrating our fifth year of Real Estate Newsmakers,” said John Featherston, CEO, president and publisher of RISMedia.

RISMedia will honor this year’s Real Estate Newsmakers, including the 2022 Hall of Fame, at RISMedia’s Newsmakers Reception & Dinner, being held Sept. 7 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., in conjunction with our 2022 CEO & Leadership Exchange.
