For Second Consecutive Year

IRVINE, Calif. - January 20, 2015 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Real Living Real Estate, one of the nation's leading national real estate franchisors and a member of the HSF Affiliates LLC family of real estate brokerage networks, announced that President Robert McAdams Jr. has been named to the 2014-'15 Swanepoel Power 200 list for the second consecutive year.
