When accepting the award, Kelman credited the hard work of Redfin’s employees. “The partnership between agents and engineers, between all the people at the company, in this mission to do something that we all really believe in, is why I am still here; it is why we will be here five years from now, and 10 years from now; it is why I am so proud to be the CEO of Redfin,” said Kelman.

The February issue of Seattle Business magazine features an interview with Glenn, and highlights the company’s unique business model, which helped it survive the market crash of 2008. As the article states, “The company’s agents are employees, not contractors, another industry-bucking choice Kelman ascribes to his being ‘a Berkeley ex-hippie.’ As this model provides agents greater stability, it also helps Redfin build brand identity through uniform service.”
