Engel & VVlkers First Coast ranks at the top of Jacksonville Business Journal's 'Fast 50' list

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 27, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Engel & VVlkers Florida today announced that Engel & VVlkers First Coast, a consortium of six locations across northeast Florida, has earned the remarkable distinction of being named the fastest-growing company in all of northeast Florida over the past three years by the Jacksonville Business Journal. This recognition comes with an impressive average growth rate of 320-percent during this period. This prestigious award underscores the relentless commitment to excellence and unwavering dedication of Engel & VVlkers franchisee, Corey Hasting, and the entire Engel & VVlkers First Coast team.

I realized that real estate in Jacksonville hasn't changed in a very long time, and I wanted to create a company that could be held to a higher standard with top-level professionals who could provide a white-glove level of service to any price point.

"What led me to start Engel & VVlkers First Coast was opportunity," said Hasting. "I realized that real estate in Jacksonville hasn't changed in a very long time, and I wanted to create a company that could be held to a higher standard with top-level professionals who could provide a white-glove level of service to any price point. I wanted to create an environment that was centered around like-minded individuals who want to collaborate with other successful real estate advisors."

For more than 25 years, the Jacksonville Business Journal has annually recognized the fastest-growing companies along Florida's 'First Coast,' a historic coastal region in northeast Florida. The coveted 'Fast 50' list has consistently shone a spotlight on companies that have thrived during prosperous times, persevered during economic downturns, and served as beacons of innovation, hard work, and creativity. This year's distinguished list of honorees represents a spectrum of industries, including real estate, transportation, technology, and manufacturing. Together, the Fast 50 honorees have collectively experienced an astounding surge in revenue exceeding $2-billion over the past three years.

"What we've done to keep our company culture strong is to never waver from who we are and what we are," said Hasting. "When we recruit advisors in our market, we recruit culture first and production second. Unfortunately, the real estate industry has taken some heat over the last few years for not having the level of professionalism that it should. So at Engel & VVlkers, that's the most important piece, and holding yourself to a higher standard isn't just a slogan, it's part of the DNA of who our company is."

Hasting's remarkable journey, from seizing the opportunity to create a higher standard in real estate to successfully navigating market volatility and fostering a culture of collaboration, has played a pivotal role in Engel & VVlkers First Coast's phenomenal growth. This award not only reflects his dedication but also highlights the entire Engel & VVlkers network's ability to provide unwavering support and guidance from the corporate level, enabling our franchisees to achieve unparalleled success and set new standards in the industry.

"It is rewarding to see Corey being recognized as the top leader that he is, not just in real estate, but for the entire business community of Jacksonville," said Peter Giese, CEO of Engel & VVlkers Florida. "Since joining our global franchise brand, Corey has consistently stood out from the competition and demonstrated his commitment to excellence, which sets a model performance standard for the rest of our network. We look forward to witnessing Engel & VVlkers First Coast's continued success and dedication to redefining the real estate industry's standards."

Hasting is the Owner and Managing Broker of six Engel & VVlkers shops in Amelia Island, Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach, Ponte Vedra Beach and San Marco. Before joining forces with the global franchise brand, Hasting consistently ranked among the top residential real estate agents of northeast Florida and was awarded numerous accolades while previously with Keller Williams Realty. Since affiliating with Engel & VVlkers, he has recruited over 130 top-producing advisors who represented more than 1,000 transactions, totaling close to $700-million in sales volume this year alone. The company is up 24-percent in sales volume from this time last year, and they are on pace to surpass $1-billion.
