Resources Real Estate Included in 2017 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies – The Inc. 5000

New York City, August 17, 2017 — Inc. Magazine unveiled its 36th Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies – the Inc. 5000 – and for the second year in a row, Resources Real Estate was included.

The Inc. 5000 is the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies and a representation of the USA’s critical segment – independent entrepreneurs.  These are businesses responsible for creating companies, creating value, and creating jobs – 619,631 of them over the last three years.

Companies such as Dell, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Pandora, Timberland, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

To qualify and make the 2017 list, companies had to demonstrate a rapid revenue growth over a three-year period, from March 2013 to March 2016.  All companies had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies – as of December 31, 2016.  Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.  The minimum revenue required for 2013 was $100,000, while the minimum for 2016 was $2 million.

Inc. President and Editor in Chief Eric Schurenberg said: “The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive.  The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”


The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 10 through 12, 2017 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, CA.  Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as former Ford president Alan Mullaly, FUBU CEO and founder and “Shark Tank” star Daymond John, Dollar Shave Club founder Michael Dubin, researcher and #1 New York Times bestseller Brené Brown, and Gravity Payments’ founder and CEO Dan Price.

“We are proud to have our growth showcased on this exclusive list,” said Carolynn Ozar-Diakon, Senior Partner and Broker at Resources Real Estate.  “In the last three years, we have not only physically expanded our offices and our team, but we’ve also expanded the markets we cover, and grown our commercial real estate division.  As always, we are dedicated to customer service and agent training, and the results are clear.”

“Looking at the other companies on the Inc. 5000, we feel very honored and very lucky,” said Thomas McCormack, Managing Partner and Broker at Resources Real Estate.  “But it’s also a very rewarding feeling because we know well the amount of hard work all of us at Resources have put in the last three years.  So seeing the fruits of our labor in the acknowledgement is extremely satisfying.  We are also thrilled to see Resources Real Estate as one of only two real estate firms in NJ on the list – none of our local competitors are included.”

Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue, out on newsstands today.  Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at
