***Matt Martin Real Estate Management has been named to Inc. magazine’s 31st annual Inc. 500|5000, a list of the fastest-growing firms in the country. A national asset management and default services firm that deals with multiple federal agencies and mortgage servicers, investors and insurers, MMREM is ranked number 116 out of the 500 fastest-growing privately held companies in the United States. The list represents a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy — America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Clif Bar, Vizio, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
****“We’re thrilled to be named to the Inc. 500 list,” says Matt Martin, founder and president of MMREM. “We’ve had phenomenal success growing our business since its inception, and all indicators point to continued expansion ahead,” Martin adds.
****MMREM was ranked the 116th fastest-growing company based on an increase in revenues of 2669% over the three-year period from 2008 to 2011. The company is a leading provider of real estate services, including asset disposition, financial advisory, and mortgage loan loss mitigation services.
****The 2012 Inc. 500 list represents the most competitive crop in the list’s history, according to Inc. magazine. To make the cut, companies needed to achieve a minimum of 770% in three-year sales growth. MMREM’s impressive growth of 2669% places the company in the 75th percentile among the top companies. Complete results of the Inc. 500|5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.Inc.com/500.
****“Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500|5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” says Inc. magazine Editor Eric Schurenberg.
****MMREM’s success has been driven by an innovative business model and a strong management team, according to Martin. “MMREM remains on the leading edge of real estate asset management and disposition, which have become increasingly important in today’s challenging housing market. Our talented and hard-working people are behind our success, and they will pave the way for continued growth in the future,” Martin says.
