Atlanta-based Mark Spain Real Estate has been recognized for a third consecutive year as a fastest growing company. The top 100 list was published online and in the April 26, 2019, issue of Atlanta Business Chronicle.
Mark Spain Real Estate has experienced a two-year revenue growth of 59 percent. In that same period, its employee growth was nearly 150 percent. Appearing in the No. 39 spot, the locally owned, independent real estate firm was also just named to Atlanta’s Top 25 Residential Real Estate Companies list for the second straight year. Mark Spain Real Estate’s $708 million in gross residential sales in 2018 moved the firm up four spots on the list to No. 18.
“Being named to the Atlanta Pacesetter list a third straight year really lets us know we are on the right track with our business,” said Chairman and CEO Mark Spain. “And, no matter how much we grow in terms of sales or offices in the Southeast, we never want to lose sight of our top priority, communicating with and building exceptional relationships with each and every Mark Spain Real Estate client. They are the cornerstone of our business.”
In 2018, Mark Spain Real Estate had 2,548 home sales and increased its sales 129 percent, year-over-year. On average, the Mark Spain team sold 10.5 homes per business day in 2018.
“We continue to focus on training, technology, service and long-term relationship building,” stated John Makarewicz, president of Mark Spain Real Estate. “These are the things that got our amazing team to this point and will keep us relevant to homebuyers and sellers in the future.”
In just over three years since its formation, Mark Spain Real Estate has expanded to eight locations in three states—four in metro Atlanta and one in Athens, Ga. as well as offices in Charlotte, Raleigh and Nashville.
The Pacesetter Award is part of a growing list of honors, including CEO Mark Spain being named one of 50 real estate executives on the 2019 REAL Trends Game Changers list. He was the only person in Georgia to be recognized as an industry game changer. Mark Spain Real Estate was named to Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 list for a second time last fall. The Inc. 5000 is the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.
