NBJ highlighted Benchmarks accomplishments for a recording-breaking year exceeding billion dollars in gross real estate sold. Benchmark also launched a major expansion increasing their offices by 30%.


Asked to choose a Billboard theme song for Benchmark Realty, CEO Phillip Cantrell polled agents and he narrowed it down to Eye of the Tiger - a great reflection of Benchmarks recording breaking year.

The song speaks of being strong and possessing a winning instinct the exact characteristic of our team. Repeated three times, Risin up to the challenge of our rival, and we are frequently challenged by our rivals due to our innovative structure and 100% commission plans. Hangin tough and stayin hungry reflects the competitive spirit we possess as a team, Cantrell said.

He stressed it is very important to have a Realtor on your side who is going to be competitive representing your interests in this busy real estate market.

Character, integrity and determination are important attributes for members of the Benchmark team. Dont kid yourself. In this hot real estate environment, you need an agent who is motivated by a 100% commission plan like Benchmarks and wants to sell your home at the best price possible, Cantrell said. Accomplishments like this NBJ honor are important to our company because we want to be the standard bearer for our industry.
