Inc. Magazine Unveils 35th Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000
San Diego Real Estate Brokerage, Big Block Realty, Ranks an impressive No. 26th on the 2016 Inc. 5000 with Three-Year Sales Growth of over 7000%
NEW YORK, August 17, 2016 — Inc. magazine today ranked San Diego real estate brokerage BIG BLOCK REALTY NO 26 on its 35th annual Inc. 500, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This also ranks BIG BLOCK REALTY as the #1 fastest growing independent brokerage firm in the US.
The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Sam Khorramian, Oliver Graf and Spencer Lugash, Co-Founders of BIG BLOCK REALTY, join an elite list of Inc. 500 members. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Dollar Shave Club, LinkedIn, Zillow, Zappos and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000.
Big Block Realty founders, Oliver Graf and Sam Khorramian, had one vision: create a brokerage firm for the agents. They partnered with Spencer Lugash, a real estate attorney, and from humble beginnings in a 10 x 10 room, grew Big Block Realty into the fastest growing real estate brokerage firm in the country in under 5 years with no sign of slowing down.
“We set out to create the ultimate agent-centric brokerage firm in the country. We have stayed focused on that vision, knowing we work for our agents not the other way around, since inception. We combine that with the best training, a fun, thriving workplace environment, and delivering a WOW customer service experience every time. That is why we are now, only 41/2 years later, number 26 on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list.” Says Sam Khorramian, CEO of BIG BLOCK REALTY.

The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history.
The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.
“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 18 through 20, in San Antonio, TX.Big Block will be there in celebration with best entrepreneurs in the country.
Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as best-selling author and strategist Tony Robbins, SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, Cornerstone OnDemand founder, president and CEO Adam Miller, Marvell Technology Group director and co-founder Weili Dai, and New Belgium Brewing co-founder and executive chair Kim Jordan.
Cheers to our success team Big Block, and again, thank you all!
