For the sixth consecutive year, Mark Spain Real Estate has been recognized by the Atlanta Business Chronicle with its Pacesetter Award. This award annually honors metro Atlanta’s top 100 fastest-growing privately held companies with a track record for revenue and employee growth. The 27th annual list will be published online and in the Atlanta Business Chronicle at the end of April, with each company’s actual ranking revealed then.
When last year’s list was announced, Mark Spain Real Estate had jumped up 13 spots on the list. With its record-breaking year in 2021—surging past the previous year’s sales volume of $1.4 billion to $3.3 billion, the Atlanta-based firm is expected to place high on the top 100 list. It also surpassed 10,000 annual closings, a drastic increase over the previous year’s 5,647 units sold.
A top 50 independent brokerage in the nation, Mark Spain Real Estate has been expanding rapidly. The company expanded into Florida in Spring 2021, opening offices in Orlando and Tampa and welcomed over 300 additional real estate agents company wide. A 12th office was opened in February 2022 in Jacksonville, Florida, the third market the company expanded to within Florida. Moving into additional cities to serve even more families in selling and buying their homes is in the works for 2022, with four new offices expected to open in the next two months.
To qualify for Pacesetter Award consideration, a firm must be based in the 20-county metro Atlanta region, experienced a two-year sales growth rate of more than 50%, and had revenue between $1 million and $300 million in 2021.
“It’s an honor to be on the Pacesetter list again this year, especially with so many remarkable companies based in metro Atlanta,” stated Founder Mark Spain. “While we are gratified by the recognition, we never lose sight of placing our clients’ goals as our top priority and serving them with an unparalleled client experience.”
