Staff Report From Metro Atlanta CEO

Thursday, March 8th, 2018

Mark Spain Real Estate, headquartered in Alpharetta, Ga., and with five offices in Georgia, has launched an extensive expansion plan that will take it well beyond the borders of Georgia. Its first out-of-state offices have recently opened in Raleigh and Charlotte, North Carolina.

“We have a pretty aggressive Southeast expansion plan in motion for the next five years,” says Chairman and CEO Mark Spain. “As with any plan, we will tweak and improve it along the way. I could not ask to have a better leadership team with me to make this growth possible. From assessing where to expand to creating and implementing a set of systems so nothing gets missed in the opening of our brand in each new city, they have adeptly done it all.”

While these internal expansion plans were taking place, Mark Spain Real Estate was also expanding in Georgia and having a record sales year. In 2017, Mark Spain Real Estate sold $550 million in gross residential real estate, showing a 25 percent growth over 2016. On average, the Mark Spain team sold 8 homes per day, helping a record 2,318 clients buy or sell a home in 2017.
The Georgia real estate firm opened a southside real estate office in Stockbridge in June, to better serve its client base in the southern metro Atlanta counties, also known as the Southern Crescent.  A few months later, at the start of October, a third metro Atlanta location would open in Marietta. This sales team is located on South Marietta Parkway near the famous Cobb County landmark, the Big Chicken, in the American Business Center.
“Our Southeast expansion plan includes taking a look at fast-growing metropolitan areas with a lot of new housing stock being built,” commented John Makarewicz, president of Mark Spain Real Estate. “Our goal is always to service middle income families so those markets are attractive.”
So where will Mark Spain Real Estate signs be popping up next? Tennessee by this summer and Florida will be introduced to the Mark Spain brand at year-end.
