Innovative marketing, technology and the recruitment of top-producing brokers account for @properties continuous growth

CHICAGO (PRWEB) June 16, 2016

@properties, the largest independent real estate brokerage firm in Illinois, has been named to the Crain’s Chicago Business annual Fast Fifty list of the fastest-growing companies in Chicago for the fifth time. @properties co-founders Thaddeus Wong and Michael Golden made the announcement.

Chicago-based @properties made the 2016 list at No. 42 based on five-year revenue growth of 307 percent. Last year the firm ranked No. 43. @properties had the 7th highest annual revenue among this year’s Fast Fifty companies, and was also the only for-sale residential real estate brokerage firm to make the list. The company first appeared on Crain’s Fast Fifty list in 2007, ranking fifth.

Established in 2000, @properties has grown from a four-person boutique firm to one of the top 11 residential brokers in the U.S. by sales volume. The firm now has 23 office locations and more than 2,000 licensed brokers in Chicago, surrounding suburbs, Southwest Michigan and Lake Geneva, Wisc., where it opened an office last year. 2015 was a record year for the firm, with closed annual sales of $7.4 billion – its highest volume in company history.

“As a company that has been around for 16 years now, it’s very exciting to still be among the fastest-growing businesses in Chicago. Last year was our most successful year yet, and we’re grateful for our brokers and staff and their commitment to @properties,” said Golden.

“While we continue to grow, we’ve remained a local, independent company with a unique culture, and that has resonated with both our brokers and clients,” said Wong.
