Tampa, FL, October 9th, 2018
The Welfont Companies based out of Tampa, Florida, continues to gain international attention for its unprecedented performance on the 2018 Inc. 500 list. On August 15th, Welfont was recognized as the fastest growing real estate brokerage in the history of the Inc. 5000.
Since that recognition in Inc. Magazine, Welfont has been getting international recognition. Earlier this month, the prestigious South African publication, BizCommunity.com picked up the news and published the story, “How Welfont Became The Fastest Growing Real Estate Company in the US”.
It was that article in a widely distributed publication that reaches an estimated 5.9 million monthly readers, that was picked up by OurBusinessNews.com. Based out of Turkey, OurBusinessNews.com republished the article for their international audience, furthering the international recognition Welfont is gaining.
Asked about the growing international coverage, Welfont’s CEO, Shawn Marcell said, “It’s a little surprising who is actually picking up our success story around the world. For a small startup that began in 2014 with a little over $123,000 in revenues, to finish 2017 with over $14,000,000 was something no one expected in the beginning. Really, it wasn’t until we saw how we did in 2016 and the momentum we had, that we thought we had a shot at placing well on the list. But we certainly didn’t expect to come in first place among the roughly 86,000 other real estate brokerages in America. It’s an honor for us.”
According to Pat Blount, Executive Vice President of Business Development, “I think you’re going to be hearing a lot more about Welfont in the coming months. Our accomplishment as fastest growing real estate brokerage surprised more than us. A lot of the big players like CBRE, Cushman & Wakefield, NAI Global, JLL and others are also taking notice and giving us a lot of traction going forward.”
Mike Mehaffey, Chief Operating Officer noted, “It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. We were in the right place at the right time with the right idea. It was a big challenge gaining momentum, but now we are positioned for some phenomenal growth in 2019.”
Welfont was established in 2014 and won the Inc. 5000 award for fastest growing real estate brokerage by achieving a record-setting three-year growth rate of 11,359%.
