Industry Leader- Power 200

Power 200 Industry Leader Atlanta, GA 

T3 Sixty, the residential real estate brokerage industry’s leading management consulting and research firm, has announced its annual list of real estate’s most powerful and influential people. The Swanepoel Power 200 (SP 200) includes leaders, executives, and entrepreneurs from all sectors of the residential real estate brokerage industry—from brokerage, MLS and Realtor trade associations, technology companies, and real estate brands.

This latest accolade for Mark Spain comes after nearly 30 years of serving home sellers and buyers in the residential real estate industry. His brief bio and SP200 ranking page can be found here. Throughout his career, Mark Spain has earned more than 100 awards and honors for record sales, leadership, and community service. Early in his career, he made a name for himself in the Atlanta real estate market with Rising Star awards, being the number one team for sales numerous times within a several thousand member Realtors association, top producer at his office, top producer for Georgia with RE/MAX, then top 10 worldwide for RE/MAX, followed by the top producer in his state for Keller Williams and top 10 worldwide for Keller Williams.

After forming his own independent real estate brokerage, Mark Spain Real Estate, professional accolades have continued. These include Best Workplace honors, top 25 real estate company in Atlanta, Charlotte, and Raleigh annual honors, Inc. 5000 awards for the fastest-growing company six years running, a PropTech 100 Most Influential People in Real Estate honor, and being named to the RISMedia Real Estate Newsmaker list as a trailblazer/agent of change. Mark Spain and his team have gone from selling hundreds of millions annually in metro Atlanta to heading a multi-billion dollar annual sales production firm with a presence in five additional real estate markets—Nashville, Charlotte, Raleigh, Tampa, and Orlando.

Now one of the top 50 producing independent residential real estate firms in the country, Mark Spain Real Estate jumped from $1.4 billion in annual sales to $3.3 billion in 2021. Its ongoing agent training, extremely selective hiring process, strategic marketing investments, and Guaranteed Offer program are all contributing factors to ongoing success and rapid growth. At a time when companies in nearly every industry have struggled to fill positions, Mark Spain Real Estate had some 8,500 applications in 2021 alone. It added more than 300 new team members in 2021 and expanded into two new markets—Tampa and Orlando, Florida.

“It’s wonderful to see industry organizations as well as research and analysis firms recognizing and honoring Mark Spain as a major contributor and influencer in the real estate industry,” noted President and CEO John Makarewicz. “He is truly a leader and innovator in both real estate and business. And Mark has achieved higher levels of accomplishment every year he has been in business, all while remaining an approachable, down-to-earth person who wants only the best for our clients and our sales team.”

Mark Spain Real Estate differs significantly from traditional real estate brokerages. Its agents all work as a team to serve clients and provide an unparalleled client experience. Agents are also highly trained and specialized, serving clients on only one side of a transaction. This allows clients’ goals to be the top priority, unlike at traditional brokerages where an agent can represent both the buyer and seller in a sale.  One of the company’s core values is to remain client-focused, and, as a result, Mark Spain Real Estate has received over 6,000 5-star reviews and is the No. 1 most reviewed real estate company in the United States.
