Real Estate Technology Innovator Austin Allison Named To Forbes 30 Under 30 and Inman News Top 100 Most Influential

Allison Joins Panel at Inman Connect to speak on converting leads to clients


Cincinnati, OH (January 10, 2012) — After recently being named one of the top 100 most influential people in real estate by Inman News, DotLoop President and CEO Austin Allison was named to the Forbes inaugural 30 under 30 list of 2012.  Coming off of this accomplished December, Allison has been asked to speak at the Inman Real Estate Connect Conference in New York City later this week where he will share his insight on how to convert leads into clients.


On Sunday, December 17th, Inman News released their annual report of the top 100 most influential people in real estate. The Inman 100 report is a list of the most influential real estate leaders and recognizes those who embody leadership, ingenuity, strength, conviction, power, persistence, perseverance and progress.  The list includes the industry’s brain trust, power brokers and deal makers and those outside the industry who impact the business of buying and selling homes.  Allison was named to the technology category for leading DotLoop to become the fastest-growing software as a service company in the industry, acquiring international enterprise wide partnerships with real estate franchises and adoption by nearly 120,000 paying users and 2,000,000 nonpaying users .


Two days later, Forbes announced the inaugural list of 30 disrupters under 30, representing entrepreneurs in 12 verticals including Energy, Media, Technology, Finance and Real Estate that aren’t waiting to reinvent the world.  Allison joined the list with Eric Trump of The Trump Organization, Daniel Ek of Spotify, Stuart Anderson of Twitter, Kevin Systrom of Instagram, David Karp of Tumblr and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook.


“To be a part of Forbes 30 Under 30 and Inman News Top 100 is an honor and testament to what we’ve accomplished. However any great leader knows that he or she is only as strong as the team’s weakest link. Our concept fills a big gap in the marketplace and we have been fortunate to attract such an amazing group of ‘Loopers.’ This award is a result of our mutual success,” said Allison.


The Inman Real Estate Connect Conference panel will be led by Gahlord Dewald, a columnist at Inman News and President of ThoughtFaucet. Aside from Allison, other panelists include leading innovators Grier Allen, President and CEO at BoomTown LLC, and Frederick Townes, Co-founder of Placester and CTO of Mashable.


Allison will dissect the art of converting leads to sales and the myth that more leads does not equal more sales. He will also discuss how to avoid the pitfalls associated with too much emphasis on lead generation and how to leverage the right solutions to close more business. “The topic of leads to clients is ideal in an industry driven by client referrals and consumer satisfaction.” stated Allison.


Allison spoke at last year’s Inman Real Estate Connect Conference in San Francisco on the topic of the “CRM-Marry-Go-Round.”


The Inman Real Estate Connect Conference will be held from Wednesday, January 11 through Friday, January 13 in New York City. For more information about the conference, please visit
