Mark Spain Real Estate sets strategy for Southeast expansion

Mark Spain Real Estate announced a large-scale expansion plan this week with goals to go beyond its fives offices in Georgia.

The company’s first expansion outside of Georgia include offices in Raleigh and Charlotte, North Carolina, but it’s not stopping there — it plans on continuing to Greenville, North Carolina; Jacksonville, Tennessee; and Orlando and Tampa, Florida, all before the end of the calendar year.

Headquartered in Alpharetta, the real estate firm spent 2017 expanding around the Atlanta area. The company opened an office in Stockbridge in June and one in Marietta just a few months later in October. The firm has seen record sales with their five offices in Georgia with $550 million in gross residential real estate in 2017, a 25 percent increase from 2016.

“Our Southeast expansion plan includes taking a look at fast-growing metropolitan areas with a lot of new housing stock being built,” said John Makarewicz, president of Mark Spain Real Estate. “Our goal is always to service middle-income families so those markets are attractive.”
