2021 Pacesetters Award
Atlanta, GA —For the fifth straight 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 select list was recently published online and in the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
Appearing in the No. 54 spot—a 13-spot jump from the previous year—Mark Spain Real Estate is also now a top 50 independent brokerage in the nation. In March, it was named to the Real Trends 500 list of top-producing residential real estate firms in the United States. This list includes both franchise and independent real estate firms. When Real Trends singled out the top 50 independent brokerages, Mark Spain Real Estate made this list.
The locally owned, independent real estate firm closed more than $1.4 billion in gross annual sales and achieved 5,647 closings in 2020. This was a single-year increase of 46.5% in annual sales volume. Mark Spain Real Estate ended 2020 with 253 sales associates, a 114% increase over the 118 real estate consultants the company had two years prior. In just two years, Mark Spain Real Estate’s sales team has more than doubled in size. The company is continually expanding its agent team and makes significant investments in hiring highly qualified team members to serve the company’s clients at the highest level. This results in roughly one out of every ten applicants joining the team.
To qualify for consideration for the Pacesetter Award, 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 2020.
“We are so appreciative of being on the Pacesetter list with so many impressive companies in metro Atlanta,” explained Chairman and CEO Mark Spain. “While we are proud of our growth, we never lose sight of our top priorities including focusing on people over transactions and leading with a servant’s heart.”
Since Mark Spain went independent and formed his own company in 2016, Mark Spain Real Estate has expanded to 11 locations in four states—five in metro Atlanta, one in Athens, Ga. and offices in Raleigh, Charlotte, Nashville, Orlando and Tampa. The expansion into Florida occurred last month.
The Pacesetter Award is part of a growing list of honors for Mark Spain Real Estate. It has similarly made five appearances on Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 list. The Inc. 5000 is the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
