Platinum Realty makes the Inc. 5000 List for the 9th Year
Platinum Realty ranks on the 2020 list of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies, emphasizing the company’s sustained growth and success as a leader in the real estate industry
Inc. Magazine listed Platinum Realty as one of America’s fastest-growing private companies for the 9th time, ranking 3373. With tens of thousands of companies that apply each year, making the list one time is a challenge. Only a small percentage make the list more than once, as each additional year becomes more difficult to maintain that level of growth with an increasing baseline. Less than 0.5% of companies make the list nine times, putting Platinum Realty among an elite and rare group. The company is on pace to continue its remarkable growth trajectory.
How has Platinum Realty been able to maintain this remarkable growth year after year? “Our company entered the real estate industry with a very unique vision in 2005, when the market screamed for a new way of doing things,” says founder Scott DeNeve. “And while we have been able to nimbly maneuver the marketplace and quickly incorporate technology, our mission has remained steadfast. We focus on empowering our agents, while providing them the highest level of support and resources. This has led to satisfied agents and clients, which promotes growth better than anything else in my experience.”
Platinum Realty certainly has been unique from the start. It was one of the very first real estate companies to depart from the traditional brokerage model of commission splits and monthly fees, allowing agents to maximize their earnings. Prioritizing agents and those they serve through its commission program, team support, technology, and systems has helped the company grow to be one of the largest real estate brokerages in the nation. Notably, Platinum Realty is not only a debt-free company, it has given 10% of its pre-tax annual profits to charitable causes since it was founded in 2005.
“To be an Inc. 5000 list honoree for the 9th time is proof that Platinum Realty has something truly extraordinary to offer real estate professionals in an ever-changing and highly competitive industry,” says DeNeve. “The last fifteen years have been an incredible journey and witnessing so many agents succeed both personally and professionally is truly the most incredible achievement for our company.”
