Amherst Madison Ranks No. 1 in Real Estate Category and No. 2 for Companies in State of Idaho
NEW YORK, August 14, 2019 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Amherst Madison is No. 28 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This is Amherst Madison’s second consecutive appearance on the Inc. 5000. This year’s high ranking comes from a three year revenue growth of 7,301 percent. Yes, you read that right. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
Amherst Madison CEO and founding partner Nick Schlekeway shared his reaction to this exciting news:
This recognition by INC Magazine is a true honor. For the second year in a row, we have joined an exclusive list of private companies who are on a mission to shake things up and make a dent. It is in times like this that I pause in gratitude for the hard work and dedication of my talented staff, our rockstar agents, and most of all the thousands of clients who have trusted us with a critical inflection point in their lives. We will pause to enjoy this and then get back to the important work of pushing boundaries and setting new expectations for excellent service.
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 20) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years. Learn more about working at Amherst Madison

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.” Ledbetter also mentioned the economic conditions regarding company growth during these specific years:
For decades, Inc. has welcomed the fastest-growing private companies in America, and this year’s set of winners places the bar very high indeed. Companies that made the list, on average, have grown sixfold since 2015. During a stretch when the economy grew just 12 percent, that’s a result most businesses could only dream of.
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
