Top-Producing Firms: Atlanta, GA
Mark Spain Real Estate, in just its sixth year as a brokerage, is on the Real Trends 500 list of top-producing U.S. residential real estate firms for the third straight year. The Top 500 list was officially released by Real Trends the last week in March 2022.
Companies on the Real Trends 500 list represent the top half of 1% of the approximately 107,000 real estate brokerage firms in the U.S. The real estate firms comprising the Real Trends 500 list represented 40.6% of all brokerage-controlled real estate sales in the country in 2021, up from 38% the previous year.
Already a top 50 independent brokerage from the previous year’s Real Trends 500 list, Mark Spain Real Estate achieved a 130% increase over its 2020 sales volume. It crossed the 10,000 transaction sides mark for the first time and achieved more than $3.3 billion in sales.
“It is gratifying to again be a part of this ranking of the top 500 real estate brokerages in the country,” stated Founder Mark Spain. “Having founded the company six years ago, our sales and marketing efforts are allowing us to compete against the largest brokerages in the country. This honor is also a reward to each of our agents for their dedication, hard work, and unwavering commitment to our real estate clients.”
Mark Spain Real Estate is not only competing with recognized real estate brands in existence for decades but is doing so with a much smaller, but efficient, sales team by comparison. The brokerage ended 2021 with 380 agents. Most firms with this level of sales have agent teams numbering into the thousands. In fact, the average number of agents per Real Trends 500 firm was 1,138, or three times the size of the Mark Spain Real Estate sales team. This speaks volumes about Mark Spain Real Estate’s agents ability to sell homes.
The Atlanta-based firm has expanded into several Southeastern cities, including Charlotte, Raleigh, Nashville, Orlando, Tampa, and Jacksonville. Four more offices are scheduled to open in additional cities before mid-year.
“It was a year of tremendous growth for us, between more than doubling annual sales, surpassing 10,000 closings for the first time, and expanding into Florida,” stated Mark Spain Real Estate President and CEO, John Makarewicz. “And 2022 is proving to be just as busy, with expansion into new cities and an extremely active real estate market.”
Founded in 1987, Real Trends is an industry leader in news, analysis and information on the residential brokerage industry. Among its real estate industry contributions is sponsoring and compiling these annual brokerage ranking lists—now in its 35th year—as well as The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals in the nation (for which the Mark Spain team has ranked No. 1 in closings the last four consecutive years).
