What It Means to Make the Inc. 5000 List Six Times
September 21, 2017
It all started with an idea in 2005. The idea was simple, yet unique. Create a company that treats real estate agents the way they want to be treated, a way they weren’t being treated. That idea became a vision and that vision quickly became one of the fastest growing real estate companies in the country.
We’re excited to announce that once again, Platinum Realty has earned a place on the Inc. 5000 list. The award recognizes the 5,000 fastest growing private companies in the U.S annually. Considering there are nearly six million private companies in the country, companies that make the Inc. 5000 list are in an elite group. At the top of this exclusive group is the ‘honor roll’, companies that have been recognized on the list five times. Today, Platinum Realty was recognized on the list for the sixth time. Proof of progress that’s hard to ignore.
We’re in good company. Past Inc. 5000 award winners represent the best of the best companies in the U.S. including Yelp, Pandora, Zillow, Microsoft and LinkedIn. These companies share common character traits that set them apart from their competition such as a proactive business model, extraordinary customer value proposition, and commitment to transparency. On this year’s list, fewer than 5% of the companies have been on the list six times or more. To be among this elite class is an honor that reflects not only our commitment to our agents but also our agent’s commitment to us.
What it means
The industry is evolving. Technology has changed the industry in ways that were unimaginable a decade ago; however, real estate practices have yet to fully adapt. Platinum Realty was founded 12 years ago with the future in mind. Our model embraces new technology and utilizes it in ways that help agents’ businesses run more efficiently and allows agents to keep more of what they earn.
The value is real. We are now and have always been a company that allows agents to keep 100% of their commissions, collecting only a $395 flat fee per transaction, and regards agents as entrepreneurs and business owners with the ability to make business decisions independently. Our business model allows us to keep fees low and gives agents the opportunity to maximize income without compromising any of the benefits of a traditional brokerage. Take control of your business, set your own commissions, keep what you earn. With Platinum it’s possible.
We’re here to stay. We’re honored to receive national recognition year after year, but our passion lies here, in America’s heartland, where we were founded and grown – where hard work is rewarded with success and integrity is an expectation, not an exception. Platinum Realty is committed not only to helping our agents’ businesses thrive but also their quality of life. We don’t simply exist here, we’re firmly ingrained in the communities where our agents live and work. As a Platinum agent, you have the foundation of a brand that has earned consumer confidence and the stability of a company that has achieved notable sustainable growth. Over 1,100 agents have found a home at Platinum Realty, proving that you really can have it all – no compromising required.
