MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 13, 2018 /CNW/ – Canadian Business and Maclean’s today ranked Search Realty No. 38 on the 30th Annual Growth 500, the definitive ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies. Produced by Canada’s premier business and current affairs media brands, the Growth 500 ranks Canadian businesses on five-year revenue growth. Growth 500 winners are profiled in a special print issue of Canadian Business published with Maclean’s magazine and online at CanadianBusiness.com and Growth500.ca.
Search Realty made the 2018 Growth 500 list with five-year revenue growth of 1,942%.
Founder and CEO Sterling Wong stated, “This is a proud moment for Search Realty and we feel very honoured to receive this ranking in the Growth 500 list. I think it underlines how effective our Leads on Demand system is for generating consistent, quality leads for agents. And that’s a key factor that really makes a difference when it comes to helping agents succeed in the real estate industry. The other key factor is our level of support for agents. We offer white-glove services so they can spend more time focusing on servicing their clients and less time on administrative tasks.”
After starting from zero as a mortgage broker in 2005, Sterling went on to receive his real estate license before quickly developing a multi-award winning real state business through Search Engine Marketing. In 2012, Sterling founded Search Realty Corp. with the goal of helping agents with no capital or database succeed by providing a turn-key, streamlined approach to the day-to-day real estate business model that utilizes the best tools, technology and lead gen systems.
With a patent-pending “Leads on Demand” system, Search Realty has consistently provided agents with high-quality leads of any type, language, location, and denomination in a timely fashion. The platform is also backed by Google, making Search Reality the only real estate brokerage in the world to be a Google Partner. This unique selling proposition, combined with the best resources and training through Search University, has resulted in massive growth in a short period of time.
The Future of Search Realty
As a company that is always looking ahead, Search Realty – in partnership with Regus Canada, has opened 5 additional real estate offices within the Greater Toronto Area this year with more opening in A+ locations throughout Southern Ontario. As the business continues to grow it will begin selling franchises, in addition to expanding into other facets, including Search Financial and Search Insurance, following the same business model as the flagship brand.
With a recent decision from Canada’s Competition Bureau to make sold data public, Sterling plans to launch a comprehensive real estate listing portal that will give consumers more options other than Realtor.ca when looking to buy or sell real estate. The portal will combine eBay style bidding with sold statistics, trends, and neighbourhood data – all the relevant information home buyers and sellers require to make an informed decision. This will create faster, safer, and more accurate data for consumers. Plans for this launch are currently undisclosed.
