Mark Spain Real Estate, owned and led by its namesake, Mark Spain, specializes in residential real estate throughout metro Atlanta, Athens as well as Charlotte, Raleigh and Nashville. He is a 1993 graduate of the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia.
The firm has earned the No. 1 real estate team in America honor the last two consecutive years (The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals, a national ranking based on annual sales production compiled by REAL Trends and advertised in The Wall Street Journal). Mark Spain Real Estate has also made the Inc. 5000 list of fastest- growing private companies in America for four straight years.
“Being included on the Bulldog 100 is a great honor. By remaining client-focused, striving to constantly grow and improve, and leading with a servant’s heart, Mark Spain Real Estate has become the most trusted name in residential real estate by being the most 5 star reviewed real estate company in the US,” said Chairman and CEO Mark Spain.
The 2020 Bulldog 100 includes businesses of all sizes and from industries such as technology, real estate, entertainment and education. Companies are based as far north as Virginia and as far west as Nevada. Of the 100 businesses, 84 are located within the state of Georgia.
Applicants were measured by their business’ compounded annual growth rate during a three-year period. The Atlanta office of Warren Averett CPAs and Advisors, a Bulldog 100 partner since the program began in 2009, verified the information submitted by each company.
This is the second time Mark Spain Real Estate has been named to the Bulldog 100 Award List. In 2018, it debuted as one of the fastest-growing 100 UGA alumni-owned companies. Mark Spain says he looks forward to seeing where his firm places on the 2020 list when the official rankings are announced in February.
The UGA Alumni Association will host the annual Bulldog 100 Celebration in Athens February 8, 2020, to celebrate these alumni business leaders and count down the ranked list to ultimately reveal the No. 1 fastest-growing business.
“Hosting this year’s Bulldog 100 Celebration in Athens will bring these bright entrepreneurs back to campus to experience how it has grown since their days at UGA,” said Meredith Gurley Johnson, executive director of the UGA Alumni Association. “We’re excited for the opportunity for these industry leaders to connect with students and share their advice and expertise.”
