Inc. magazine has ranked Mark Spain Real Estate No. 2,521 on its annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of America's fastest-growing private companies.
Online PR News – 20-August-2021 – Atlanta, GA – Inc. magazine has ranked Mark Spain Real Estate No. 2,521 on its 40th annual Inc. 5000 list. The list represents a unique look at the most successful independent small business companies in the U.S. Companies such as Microsoft, LinkedIn, Yelp and others which are now considered household names, first gained national exposure as Inc. 5000 honorees.
Mark Spain Real Estate, on the Inc. 5000 a sixth consecutive year, placed solidly on the list, in the No. 2,521 spot. The Atlanta-based firm achieved a three-year growth rate of 166%. In 2019, Mark Spain Real Estate crossed the $1 billion annual gross sales mark for the first time in its history. In 2020, it continued its extensive real estate sales growth, finishing the year with more than $1.4 billion in gross sales, a 46.5% increase year-over-year.
Mark Spain Real Estate was honored in June as the No. 1 sales team in America for an unprecedented fourth straight year on The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals, a national ranking based on annual gross sales production compiled by Real Trends and The Wall Street Journal.
With 5,647 home closings in 2020, Mark Spain Real Estate increased sales by more than $400 million in a single year. The firm averaged more than 21 home closings per business day for 2020.
“It is so gratifying to again be included on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies. We focus on putting the right people in place who share a common goal of providing an unparalleled client experience,” explained Chairman and CEO Mark Spain. “Then we give them the tools, ongoing training and support they need to best serve our clients.”
Spain said he built the company based on the premise of putting people first. Mark Spain Real Estate seeks agents who are eager to serve clients at the highest level and, on average, extends job offers to just one in 10 agents who apply to the firm, after a multi-part selection process.
To provide clients a fast and easy way to sell their home, Mark Spain Real Estate’s Guaranteed Offer program allows sellers to receive an all-cash offer on their home and choose when they want to close - as fast as 21 days or up to 9 months after accepting their Guaranteed Offer. The Guaranteed Offer program grew by more than 28% in 2020, serving families in selling their homes fast and hassle-free.
The 2021 Inc. 5000 companies are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2017 to 2020. So a triple figure increase, like the 166% three-year sales growth achieved by Mark Spain Real Estate, in the competitive residential real estate market while adjusting to pandemic challenges nearly all of 2020, represents significant sustained growth.
The firm began expansion outside Georgia in 2018. Today, Mark Spain Real Estate has offices in Charlotte, Raleigh, Nashville and, in 2021, Tampa and Orlando.
