Menkiti Group and Affiliated Brokerage Keller Williams Capital Properties Recognized on the 2014 Inc. 500|5000 Fastest-Growing Privately Held Companies List
WASHINGTON, DC – The Menkiti Group, a DC-based full-service real estate firm dedicated to enhancing the fabric of life in America’s urban neighborhoods through the strategic development, management, and sale of residential and commercial property, today announced that it has been honored on Inc.’s 500|5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Its sister company, regional real estate brokerage powerhouse, Keller Williams Capital Properties, also earned a position on the 500|5000 list, including a nod for being among the top 20 fastest growing companies in Washington, DC.
The Menkiti Group was founded in 2004 by social entrepreneur Bo Menkiti with a mission to transform lives and communities through real estate. The company’s approach to urban neighborhood transformation is centered upon full service residential and commercial development, residential sales and commercial sales. In 2006, Mr. Menkiti formed the Keller Williams Capital Properties brokerage with partners Carlos Garcia, Brandon Green, Jason Martin and Joel Nelson. In eight years the brokerage has grown to five offices throughout DC, Maryland, and Virginia, with nearly 600 associate agents and over $1.3 Billion in 2013 sales. In 2014, KWCP was ranked as one of the top three companies to work for in the entire region by the Washington Post. The Menkiti Group operates KWCP, and Mr. Menkiti serves as the CEO of both companies.
“I am thrilled and humbled that both the Menkiti Group and Keller Williams Capital Properties are being recognized by Inc. This honor is deeply significant because it recognizes that businesses can answer to a double bottom line – delivering community transformation through real estate services, while providing value for shareholders and associates,” Menkiti stated. Mr. Menkiti was recently recognized by the Washington Business Journal as a 2014 Minority Business Leader.
Between 2011 and 2013, Menkiti Group revenue grew 103%; KWCP revenue grew 305%.
