The results are in: @properties has made Crain’s Chicago Business’ Fast Fifty list for the sixth time — and we’re excited.
The annual list recognizes the 50 fastest-growing companies in Chicago based on five-year revenue growth.
This year, @properties made the Crain’s Fast Fifty list at No. 39 with five-year revenue growth of 283.8%. @properties has had a steady presence on the list since 2007, clocking in last year at No. 42.
“To be named to the Crain’s Fast Fifty list just once is a great achievement, but to be named six times in the last decade is simply incredible,” said @properties co-founder Mike Golden. “We are honored to once again be recognized among so many innovative and successful companies.”
“After 17 years in business, you don’t necessarily expect to still be one of the fastest-growing companies in Chicago. This distinction is meaningful not only because we continue to grow, but also because that growth has been entirely organic and over such an extended period time,” said @properties co-founder Thad Wong.
2016 was another record year for @properties, with closed annual sales volume of $8.1 billion. Since opening its first office in 2000, the firm has grown to become the largest residential brokerage company in Chicago and the 11th largest in the U.S. by sales volume. Today @properties has 24 office locations and more than 2,000 licensed brokers in Chicago, surrounding suburbs, Southwest Michigan and Lake Geneva, Wisc.
