Realty Austin Tops Best Places to Work List
The People Are the Secret Sauce Says Founder of the Technology-driven Austin Company
AUSTIN, TX -- Realty Austin is named one of Austin’s Best Places to Work in Central Texas by the Austin Business Journal. The company’s laser focus on technology, customer service, and philanthropic culture were cited as reasons why Realty Austin was named one of 2016’s Best Places to Work in Austin, Texas. Realty Austin has ranked in the Top 3 for the past five years.
Yvette Boatwright, co-owner of Realty Austin said, “Our mantra is work hard, play hard, and give back, and we, as a company, truly do embody that spirit. Our team is forward thinking, caring, and compassionate. We are grateful to have agents and staff that really want to serve clients with superior customer service and make an impact in the community.”
The residential real estate brokerage was honored at the Superhero-themed luncheon on Friday, June 24, 2016, at the Hyatt Regency Austin with a #3 rank. ABJ’s Best Places to Work list identifies the top workplaces in Central Texas. Qualifying companies are measured in four categories based upon key performance areas such as leadership and management; workplace environment; compensation and benefits; and growth and development.
Jonathan Boatwright, co-owner of Realty Austin said, “We have great technology and tools, but the secret sauce is the people. All that other stuff wouldn’t matter if we didn’t have the right agents and team to help deliver it to our customers.”
Through well-positioned locations in Downtown, Westlake, Lake Travis, Southwest, Northwest, East Austin, and soon to be Round Rock, the company has grown to a team of 340 agents and 30 support staff since its inception in 2004. Headquartered in West Lake Hills, Realty Austin is a member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®, Luxury Portfolio®, and ranks as Austin's highest producing independent agency with $2B in sales in 2015.
Courtney Lepore, Vice President of Operations said, “Realty Austin is homegrown Austin with its great technology and authentic people. Every day we are pushing the boundaries to better serve our clients with the goal of helping our agents achieve a better work-life balance in the real estate industry.”
