Mark Spain Returns to Dawg Country in Athens, GA
January 2016 was the official launch of Mark Spain Real Estate into the Athens market! It’s an exciting time for many UGA graduates at MSRE, including Mark Spain himself, a graduate of the Terry College of Business at UGA. Mark seeks to bring the Athens community an unprecedented client experience. He is so excited to serve the town he called home for his college years. Mark Spain strives to continuously grow and improve, we cannot wait for this expansion into Athens!
Our History with Athens, GA
Moving into Athens is a natural progression for the team at Mark Spain Real Estate. Mark considers Athens a second base, and the team has a great passion for the city. Our team seeks to contribute to the Athens market, and we are heavily involved in recruiting great talent from the University of Georgia, with ten UGA graduates already on staff!
John Makarewicz, President of MSRE, comments that this is a huge growth period for MSRE, stating:
“It’s about striking that balance of growing very quickly, but also maintaining a strong level of customer service… we are recruiting very heavily right now and one of our biggest challenges is finding those people that are inherently good at customer service, believe in it, and have it built into who they are as a person. It’s sometimes hard to see that with just one interview so we have a multi-step process where we take people through some behavioral assessments… really what we are trying to dive into is if this is someone who cares about people at a deep level.”
About Mark Spain Real Estate
At Mark Spain Real Estate, we promote a culture of “leading with a servant’s heart” and fully believe in going the extra mile for our clients, in small and big ways. As the recruitment process goes on over the next several months, a key focus in the hiring process is looking for team players who lead with a servant’s heart.
Since January, Mark Spain Real Estate has sold 25 homes in Athens, Georgia. We are excited to help even more families into the next chapter of their life by aiding in the home buying and/or selling process. MSRE strives for continued excellence in customer service and hopes to be more than just a Realtor in the process. As Lee McClung comments on the new venture:
“I absolutely love being back in Athens, it has both the small town feel while having the benefits of so much to do! The clients that we work with are phenomenal, it is a reminder of Southern hospitality and politeness and that it still exists. The market is hot right now and I really like being able to help the families of the Classic City move on to their next season of life via the sale of their home. Being back in Dawg country is truly a blessing and reminds me of why I fell in love with this town in the first place!”
