Austin American-Statesman Honors Residential Real Estate Brokerage with Highest 2016 Top Workplace Award

AUSTIN, TXRealty Austin was awarded the no. 1 honor in the Austin American-Statesman’s annual Top Workplace Awards. The company’s innovation, culture of collaboration, and mission of giving back to the community were noted as top reasons Realty Austin was named with the highest 2016 Top Workplace Award.

Jonathan Boatwright, co-owner of Realty Austin said, “The secret sauce is the people. Our company has great technology and tools, but none of it would matter if we didn’t have the right people to help deliver it to our customers, our agents and staff. That’s just what makes Realty Austin tick—the people.”

Realty Austin placed first among the top 25 midsize companies with 150 to 499 employees in the Greater Austin area. The residential real estate brokerage was honored the top winner in Sunday’s edition of the Austin American-Statesman. The Top Workplace lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement.

Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including organizational health, alignment, execution, connection, and employee engagement. Top Workplaces are divided into three categories: large companies with more than 500 local employees, midsize companies with 150 to 499 local employees, and small companies with fewer than 150 local employees.

Yvette Boatwright, co-owner of Realty Austin said, “When you are a part of something special, you want to share it. Our team mantra is ‘work hard, play hard, give back’ and as a company, we truly do embody that. We’re fortunate to have smart, forward-thinking agents and support staff, who are also caring and compassionate, and really want to make an impact in the community.”

Realty Austin is the #1 independent residential real estate firm in Austin with $2 billion in sales in 2015. Realty Austin is headquartered in Westlake with satellite offices in Central Austin, East Austin, Northwest Austin, Southwest Austin, Round Rock and Lake Travis with 365 full-time, high-producing agents who were hand-selected for their experience, market knowledge, and career accomplishments. A member of Luxury Portfolio International® and Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®, Realty Austin is the most innovative and progressive real estate company in Austin, uniquely suited for its high tech, homegrown culture.

Courtney Lepore, Vice President of Operations said, “We greatly value the feedback we receive from the Statesman’s survey each year, as it shapes our priorities and drives our innovation initiatives. To stay a Top Workplace year over year, we know we must listen to the needs of our team, determine measurable results and be able to execute accordingly.”

This year marks the third time Realty Austin has been awarded the no. 1 spot on the Austin American-Statesman’s Top Workplaces Awards since 2012.
