Steady, profitable growth is the current state of Benchmark Realty LLC, currently tracking at a 48% increase in overall volume, says company founder/CEO Phillip Cantrell.

In the latest rankings for the Nashville Business Journal, Benchmark has risen to third in the market, previously seventh around three years ago, according to Cantrell, who says the progress is part of his long-term plans for the company.

In the past year where we’ve been honored by Inc. 5000 as one of their fastest growing companies and NBJ as a “Best Places To Work” yet again, the latest ranking information is part of a measured pace. For our agents and customers we serve, it reflects a building of our brand, the high comfort level people have with our agents and our high standard of professionalism,” Cantrell said. "The continued success and growth of the company reflects the depth and success of our agents in this community.

In further analysis, Cantrell said the total unit count for Benchmark was reported early to NBJ due to their deadline and 2016 actually finished at 5,667 units. “Our competitors have four to five times the number of offices as Benchmark. We are very lean and driven by conservative principals focusing on less overhead which has to be absorbed by agents and ultimately passed on to consumers. This being said, we do have some great upcoming news.”


Cantrell said exciting national real estate rankings are expected soon as well as two, new regional offices opening. The lease has been signed, and, at the end of May, the Mt. Juliet office of Benchmark will be operational near the central business district off Mt. Juliet Road. Hendersonville is the next location with plans to open up late summer. Stay tuned for all of the exciting details!
