EQ1 Real Estate ranks in the top 5000 fastest-growing private companies in the United States
EQ1 Real Estate announced today that they have earned the position of 1665 on the 2018 Inc, 5000’s list of fastest-growing private companies in America. This honor comes on the fifth anniversary of EQ1’s founding.
“We are honored to have made Inc’s list. We never imagined getting this recognition in such a short span of time,” says Mike Bui, President and CEO of EQ1 Real Estate. “This significant milestone is the result of EQ1’s commitment to our team’s success, putting our agents and clients first, and always staying true to our values.”
EQ1 has grown from $30 million in revenue in 2014 to over $500 million in revenue accumulatively to date. In 2018, the company has already brought in $100 million in revenue.
EQ1 Real Estate, based in San Jose, CA, was founded in 2013 by Mike Bui and a team of six Realtors. In the last five years, the company has grown to a team of 34 Realtors, Marketing team, and administration staff, and two offices in San Jose that serve the Bay Area and the Greater Sacramento Region.
Bui originally started the company as an arm to sell properties for his investment company that specialized in acquisitions of distressed properties that were renovated and re-sold. After the Bay Area housing market exploded and the inventory of distressed properties were drastically reduced, Bui saw more value in serving residential sales for clients and focused his efforts on building the boutique brokerage.
“We built this company on the Golden Rule: Treat others as you want to be treated,” say Bui. “We believe this is one of the biggest keys to our success.”
In addition to ranking on Inc’s list, in 2017, EQ1 ranked number 12 on Silicon Valley Business Journal’s Top Residential Real Estate firms.
