One of the industry’s leading independent residential real estate firms, Mark Spain Real Estate, has opened its third location outside its Georgia home base since the start of the year. The firm has strategically chosen Nashville as its first Tennessee location, a city which regularly makes the list of hottest U.S. real estate markets.
According to Zillow, Nashville is ranked as the No. 8 hottest real estate market to watch in 2018. “Zillow’s Hottest Housing Markets for 2018” was based on increasing home values, job opportunities, steady income growth and low unemployment rates.
“Nashville has been experiencing amazing growth the last few years. In 2017 alone, it experienced double-digit home price appreciation of about 12.5%, which is incredible. And yet it’s still more affordable and family-oriented than many large cities,” said Chairman and CEO Mark Spain. “Nashville is a great fit for our real estate model. We look forward to becoming more involved with the local communities that make up greater Nashville.”
Spain explained how the company differs from traditional real estate models. At Mark Spain Real Estate, everyone works together to succeed instead of competing against each other as in a traditional real estate brokerage model. The result is a more caring, collaborative and close-knit culture. The client experience at Mark Spain Real Estate is given extremely high importance. The result is a near five-star rating on Zillow, where the firm is the No. 1 most reviewed real estate company in the entire United States with nearly 2,000 reviews.
Prior to forming his own independent firm in 2016, Mark Spain and his team were annually the No. 1 ranked large team for sales production with the Atlanta Realtors Association for more than 10 consecutive years and annually appeared in the top 10 of the REAL Trends/Wall Street Journal list of America’s top 1,000 agents and teams. In June 2018, Mark Spain Real Estate got the news they had waited to hear for a long time—they were now No. 1 for closed transactions on this top 1,000 list!
In 2017, Mark Spain Real Estate sold a record $550 million in real estate. On average, the Mark Spain Real Estate team sold 8 homes per business day, helping a record 2,318 clients buy or sell a home. Mark Spain Real Estate will surpass the $4 billion point in collective gross sales this year.
The Mark Spain Real Estate Nashville office is located in east Nashville at 901 Woodland Street. The Director of Sales for the office is Shasta Smith, a Tennessee native and University of Tennessee-Chattanooga graduate who has been a licensed real estate agent since 1999.
“With nearly 100 people moving to Nashville every day and billions of dollars in new construction being invested across the city, it’s exhilarating to be a part of this growth. With Mark Spain Real Estate, we are all about growth and innovation right now as well, so it’s a perfect match for the Nashville real estate market,” explains Shasta Smith. “We are thrilled to continue growing our very strong team here in Nashville. One experienced Mark Spain Real Estate team member has joined us in Nashville from Atlanta and we’ve brought on an outstanding group of seasoned, local Nashville agents as well. We are very selective about who we hire because not everyone is going to be a fit for our unique business model. We are looking for rock stars, ready to deliver that outstanding Mark Spain Real Estate client experience.”
Smith mentioned the heavy duty advertising and marketing for the Nashville region is set to launch mid-August, and her phone is already ringing off the hook with agent interest.
Mark Spain Real Estate has five locations in Georgia—four in metro Atlanta and an office in Athens—and two locations in North Carolina—Charlotte and Raleigh—which opened at the start of 2018. Additional cities throughout the southeast will be introduced to the Mark Spain Real Estate brand in 2019.
