Focusing on “leadership, ingenuity, strength, conviction, power, persistence, perseverance and progress,” Inman News selects the people that most embody these traits to compile their list of 100 Most Influential Real Estate Leaders. With a focus on technology and customer service, Matt Beall has successfully guided Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers to becoming one of Hawaii’s top real estate companies in 3 years, earning national attention, including Inman’s Top 100 List.

Inman accepts nominations through early November in the qualifying year, amassing hundreds of nominees through an online submittal process. After an in-house review, the Inman News editorial department selects the most outstanding candidates based on the following criteria:

  • The ability to effect change in their own company and industry.
  • Have they created change?
  • Do they drive growth?
  • Have they driven changes that are beneficial to consumers and industry practitioners?

Along with Beall, the list includes the CEOs of Trulia, Zillow, Craigslist, Realtor.com, JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and other multinational companies.

Hawaii Life has grown dramatically in the three short years that they have been in operation. The company, which has its roots in online marketing, has been on the forefront of advancing the technology of online real estate search and lead management.

Working with co-owners Justin Britt and Winston Welborn, both of whom have years of experience in the online marketplace, Beall has pushed the boundaries of tech innovation in a profession that is steeped in brick and mortar.

Grown from a Kauai real estate brokerage, Hawaii Life now employs about 130 agents statewide and has offices to service Kauai, Big Island, Maui, and Oahu real estate needs. Employees at Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers are active members of their communities; they include members of various boards and hold esteemed positions in industry groups. Beall encourages his agents to be involved and effect change in the industry. Leading by example, Beall was recently installed as the President of the Kauai Board of Realtors. Beall notes, “… so far my short career of volunteering has brought successful political action (which has greatly benefited our local community) and an increased ability to conduct business that I would have never had access to in the first place.”
