Named to the top 100 real estate firms in the nation for transactions by REALTrends, Benchmark Realty LLC announced today a fourth location in Mt. Juliet with Scott Rowland as office principal broker according to Benchmark Realty CEO Phillip Cantrell.

One of the fastest growing mid-state companies, Cantrell said Benchmark agents are among the most professional in the industry as indicative of earning a spot on the REALTrends rankings.

“Our associates are among the most professional, dedicated and knowledgeable agents in the entire industry,” says Cantrell. “The standards are imperative for assembling a dynamic team and are a direct result of our company’s growth and earning a spot on REALTrends prestigious list,” Cantrell said.

For the almost 30 years, REALTrends has been ranking the performance of the top residential real estate brokerage firms. All the information included for consideration is independently verified, and, in order to be considered, firms must have closed a minimum of 1,702 transaction sides. Benchmark ranked #93 in the nation for transactions with over 5,700 closed transactions for 2015 and ranked #117 in nation for dollar volume.

Cantrell said agents have repeatedly contacted Benchmark to open an office in the popular Mt. Juliet area and this new office is part of a careful company growth plan which includes selecting a great location with a knowledgeable, supportive broker, and, then opening the new location while maintaining the company’s policy of remaining debt-free.

To put it mildly, Benchmark is on a perpetual quest to make our model available to as many real estate agents in Middle Tennessee as we possibly can. The way we see it, the more agents who access our model, the more the consumer benefits through the training and freedom that we bring to our agents,” Cantrell said. “In addition to utilizing our cutting-edge, cloud-based technology, affiliates in the Wilson County area will benefit from close proximity to a Benchmark office – hence the decision to open another facility in Mt. Juliet. The market there is diversified and continuing to expand. Fully staffed and equipped, our new location is attracting more experienced agents each day and we look forward to a long term presence in the area.”

A native of Mt. Juliet, Rowland has been a real estate professional for over 15 years and is a member of the East Middle Tennessee Realtors Association. He said the Mt. Juliet zip code was just listed as 16th in the nation for growth.

“The timing of a fourth Benchmark Realty office is perfect bringing new opportunity for professionals in this area to better serve our area while maintaining that small community touch,” Rowland said.
