AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Realty Austin and its co-founder Jonathan Boatwright were named to the annual Swanepoel Power 200 list of the most power people in residential real estate. Boatwright and the company he co-founded with wife Yvette are featured on the Top 20 Trendsetters list comprised of innovators, dealmakers, and those that are anticipated to make a difference in the industry.
Jonathan Boatwright said, "Realty Austin is proud to be recognized on the Swanepoel list with the leaders of our industry. The digital age has created fierce competition, and in Austin, where technology is king, our agents drive us to innovate daily in order to deliver cutting edge systems and tools to help them succeed."

To be honored by Swanepoel makes us excited about the future—as we are just getting started!"
