LAS VEGAS, Aug. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For the fourth consecutive year, Realty ONE Group, Inc., has been named to the Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. It might be its last appearance though…since the company has intent to go public in 2012.
With 4,000 agents, Realty ONE Group is on track to close more than 20,000 transactions, totaling more than $4 billion in sales this year, compared with 16,000 transactions and $2.7 billion in sales last year.
"With this accomplishment, Realty ONE Group joins the rarified company of enterprises that have appeared on the list multiple times, many of which have grown to become national icons," said Eric Schurenberg, editor in chief of Inc. Magazine. "To be honored this year is a particularly notable achievement. To rank among the 2012 Inc. 500, a company had to thrive through three of the toughest years this economy has seen in living memory. Their success in such times is eloquent testimony to their team's creativity, resilience, and tenacity."
Other notable names on the list include Facebook, Yelp, yogurt maker Chobani and Giftcards.com.
CEO and founder Kuba Jewgieniew cites a number of reasons for Realty ONE Group's growth, but ultimately, he says it comes back to the firm's unwavering focus on supporting its agents and offering a culture of ethics and professionalism.
"We will continue to dominate our markets and the industry because of the quality of the agent we attract. Realty ONE Group focuses on its agents and their professional success, so they can focus on their clients. By providing them the latest in education and marketing, combined with cutting-edge proprietary technology, we make their job easier – and more lucrative. Having the best agents is how you win."
Last month, Realty ONE Group launched a non-conventional "unfranchise" opportunity, where it will allow business-minded franchisees to utilize its successful business model with zero royalty or percentage fees for only $1.
The firm also is growing organically through strategic acquisitions and new offices: over the past 12 months, it has opened several new offices: Anaheim, which recently doubled in size after only 4 months in the market; Gilbert, Ariz.; and Southwest Nevada. It also recently expanded its headquarters outside of Las Vegas.
"Everything about our model is unconventional, down to our focus on high-end offices in desirable areas," says Jewgieniew. "As INC. magazine confirms, Realty ONE Group is blazing new trails in the industry by retreating from tired industry norms. By attracting the best agents in the field and meeting client needs with unsurpassed service, we are proving the business success of our culture."
