We’re honored to be on such a prestigious list of companies for yet another year, and proud of our brokers and staff for all of their hard work and commitment.

Chicago-based real estate firm @properties has been named to Inc. magazine’s Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies for the ninth time in ten years. The company first appeared on the list in 2006, ranking 341.

For 2015, @properties posted three-year revenue growth of 163 percent and had the highest revenue of Illinois-based residential real estate brokerage firms on the list with $156.3 million.

Established in 2000, @properties has grown from a four-person brokerage firm to the largest independent real estate brokerage firm in Illinois and one of the top 12 brokerages in the nation by sales volume. Year to date, the company is the No. 1 real estate broker in the city of Chicago by a sizable margin, with 19.4 percent market share. @properties is also the largest brokerage firm on Chicago’s North Shore. Within the last year, the company has expanded its brokerage business to Wisconsin, and also has two offices in Southwest Michigan.

Recently, @properties has also invested or partnered with a number of local tech startups that offer products and services, which provide cost savings or added convenience for clients, or facilitate or improve the transaction process for brokers.    

“We continue to raise the bar every year and seek out new technologies that will help our brokers grow their business,” said @properties co-founder Thaddeus Wong. “We’re honored to be on such a prestigious list of companies for yet another year, and proud of our brokers and staff for all of their hard work and commitment.”

“Last year was an incredible year for @properties, and we’re already working towards another record year for 2015,” @properties co-founder Michael Golden added. According to Golden, @properties is on track to top $7 billion in closed sales for 2015.

According to Inc., the 2015 Inc. 5000 class is the most competitive in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved three-year growth of 490%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $205 billion, generating 647,000 jobs over the past three years.

"The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident."

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 21 through 23, 2015 in Orlando.
