Platinum Drive Realty Named As A Who’s Who In Luxury Real Estate

November 23, 2014

Platinum Drive Realty has been selected to join Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate on LuxuryRealEstate.com, a global network of the world’s finest high-end real estate professionals.

Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate is the compendium of the finest residential real estate firms from around the world. LuxuryRealEstate.com offers access to the most multi-million dollar properties. This listing is the just latest accolade given to Platinum Drive Realty, which was recently named by Inc. Magazine as the fastest growing real estate brokerage firm in the Tri-State area and one of the fastest growing companies in America with three-year revenue growth of 541%.

“We are very proud to join Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate,” said Heather Harrison, Co-Founder of Platinum Drive Realty. “We are thrilled to have been embraced by the real estate community and have enjoyed incredible successes throughout the year.”

Platinum Drive Realty Named to Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

August 29, 2014

Platinum Drive Realty has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The real estate firm founded and headquartered in Scarsdale, NY ranked 838 nationwide among all companies and first among real estate brokerage firms in the state of New York and Westchester, with three-year revenue growth of 541%. This prestigious list represents a comprehensive look at America’s most successful private companies.

“We are honored to be named as one of the fastest growing companies in America,” said Zachary Harrison, President of Platinum Drive Realty. “It’s a tribute to our phenomenal team of professionals, wonderful clients, and our firm’s energetic and innovative approach to real estate.”

The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs over the past three years. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000.

“What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 15 through 17, 2014 in Phoenix. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Michael Dell, Martha Stewart, host of the CNBC show “The Profit” Marcus Lemonis, Container Store Founder and CEO Kip Tindell, and Chobani Founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya.

Platinum Drive Realty is a leading real estate firm that serves a variety of clients, from first-time homebuyers and sellers to experienced homeowners, builders and investors.
