One for the record books, The Welfont Companies, based out of Tampa, Florida, just won first place in the 2018 Inc 5000 list of fastest growing real estate “brokerages” in the country.

With an impressive 3-year growth rate of 11,359%, Welfont surpassed the 2nd place real estate brokerage by a margin of nearly 4,000%, making them the fastest growing real estate brokerage in the history of the Inc 5000. The Inc 500 started in 1982, and was expanded into the Inc 5000 in 2007.

With approximately 30,000,000 companies in America, placing anywhere on the Inc 5000 list is a major accomplishment and this year, Welfont made it into the Top 20 of all US based companies, ranking at #16 out of a field of the top 5000 companies in America.

Shawn Marcell, Welfont’s CEO said, “We’re truly humbled by the award and grateful for the recognition. We have the best team of professional agents and real estate service providers anywhere. I couldn’t be more proud of them!”

Welfont’s Broker of Record, Amy Stevenson said, “Being the Fastest Growing Real Estate Brokerage in the country and placing 16th among companies from all market segments, far surpassed our expectations. It also validated the uniqueness of our client-centric, business model that is focused on serving the overlooked and underserved nonprofit market segment.”

Executive Vice President, Mike Mehaffey said, “Out of a field of some 87,000 real estate brokerages, Welfont came out on top. Our team is talented, but more importantly, we love serving the nonprofit market sector. Our clients are in acquisition mode and they close on deals.”

To be considered for this prestigious award, Welfont had to have a 3-year sustained growth rate surpassing all other real estate brokerages.
