Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ATLANTA - Aug 18, 2017 - The Inc. 5000 represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, LinkedIn, Under Armour, Dell, Timberland, Yelp and other notables which have become household names, first gained national exposure as honorees on Inc. 5000.
“We’re thrilled to be one of the Inc. 5000 for the second year in a row! This honor is a reflection on our team and their focus,” said Chairman and CEO Mark Spain.
The 2017 Inc. 5000, released online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., is a competitive and varied list of businesses. Companies are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2013 to 2016. The average company on this year’s Inc. 5000 list grew by sixfold in that time period. By comparison, the economy grew by 6.7 percent, so this sustained increase, such as the 175 percent three-year sales growth achieved by Mark Spain Real Estate (http://www.markspain.com) in the exceptionally competitive metro Atlanta real estate market is a substantial accomplishment.
One of only 196 real estate-related firms in America to earn a spot on the list (and dozens of these were actually home builders, not residential real estate companies), Mark Spain Real Estate was one of only seven real estate firms in Georgia to make the Inc. 5000 list in 2017.
The Inc. 5000 honor comes just weeks after Mark Spain Real Estate was named the No. 2 sales team in the nation for most closed annual sales transactions on The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals list. The national awards ranking is sponsored annually by REAL Trends and advertised in The Wall Street Journal. It’s based on 2016 sales production. Mark Spain Real Estate averaged 5.2 home sales per day for $443million in total gross sales.
The Atlanta real estate firm was also honored by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in March when it was honored as one of the top 150 companies in Atlanta to work, receiving a 2017 AJC Top Places to Work Award.
Mark Spain Real Estate’s corporate office is located approximately 20 minutes northeast of Atlanta, in Alpharetta, Ga., at 12600 Deerfield Parkway, Suite 450.
