The red-hot political climate in the U.Shas left some industry leaders stuck weighing their professional obligations and their personal convictions.
Compass CEO Robert Reffkin and Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman told attendees of a panel discussion at Inman Connect’s New York conference on Tuesday that they’ve both found themselves reflecting their roles and actions.
