‘Work Hard, Play Hard, Give Back’ Sums Up the #1 Best Place to Work in Austin

AUSTIN, TXRealty Austin, #1 independent residential real estate firm in Austin, has placed first for the third time in Austin’s Best Places to Work in Central Texas by the Austin Business Journal. Realty Austin’s innovation in the real estate industry distinguishes the company as the brokerage of the future.

Advanced technology and marketing tools, superior customer service, and a culture of philanthropy topped the list as reasons why Realty Austin was named as 2017’s #1 Best Places to Work in Austin, Texas. Watch the video below to meet Realty Austin’s behind-the-scenes, dedicated support team.

Jonathan Boatwright, co-owner of Realty Austin said, “We are grateful for our team who brings their ‘A Game’ every day. We are driven to find solutions for a better work-life balance for our team of agents and support staff. We believe a happy workplace = happy clients, and we thrive on finding new ways to provide best-in-class service and support to our agents and their clients.”

The company’s ability to attract and retain the best team in the industry derives from the firm’s belief in the servant leadership model. Agents are hand-selected for their experience, market knowledge and career accomplishments, and the support staff are hired for their professional strengths and unique abilities.

Yvette Boatwright, co-owner of Realty Austin said, “Our mantra is work hard, play hard, and give back, and our company, truly does embody that spirit. In the last 5 years, the Realty Austin agents have contributed over $600,000 of their commissions, and volunteered over 8,000 hours to build 5 Habitat for Humanity homes in support of our company’s mission to give back.”

The residential real estate brokerage was honored with the top award at the groovy 70’s themed luncheon on Friday, June 23, 2017 at the JW Marriott Austin.
