2023 HW Finance Leader: Michelle Ressler


Michelle Ressler has led The Real Brokerage through a massive growth stage, including an uplisting to the Toronto Stock Exchange and two acquisitions in 2022. Under Ressler, Real saw year-over-year growth in all of its key measures — agent count grew by 126% to more than 6,700 agents, transactions increased by 197% to 11,233, revenue was up 188% to $112 million and gross profit grew 158% to $9 million.

Ressler’s financial acumen has led to Real’s strong operating leverage and the company’s continued geographic expansion and product diversification. Real expanded into Alabama, Mississippi, Maine and New Mexico in the U.S., and British Columbia in Canada in 2022. The company also expanded into the title and mortgage businesses with the acquisitions of Expetitle  — now Real Title — and Lemonbrew. With Ressler’s guidance, Real has successfully integrated two companies in a span of less than 12 months, giving the company entry into two new ancillary, revenue-generating services. As a leader, Ressler exhibits a hands-on and inspirational leadership style with the more than 35 employees she manages.
