Each year the Inc. 500|5000 releases their annual list of the top companies in America. Pangea Properties is proud to announce that we have made the list in our very first year of eligibility! Overall, our company ranked 42nd and, in the real estate industry as a whole, we placed second. For the Chicago market, Pangea Properties was listed as the number one company.
We attribute Pangea’s success to our strong presence in the communities we serve. We have had a great past three years; when most companies in our industry were cutting back, Pangea steadily recorded employment growth. We still have a tremendous amount of upside and growth ahead of us. We have added nearly 100 employees since we first applied for this award.
At Pangea, our business model focuses on adding value to underserved communities by completely renovating buildings, often in small clusters or on the same block, to create a sense of community and provide greater stability.
We add value over the long-term by providing sturdy and reliable construction and updated amenities such as modern appliances, hardwood floors and on-site laundry, all at an affordable price. In addition to adding value for residents, Pangea has also focused on bringing prosperity to the community as a whole by employing local residents and creating job growth.
As the newly minted number one company in Chicago, the fierce and growing competition in the Windy City makes winning the award all the sweeter. We are thrilled to have earned the number one spot as there are a lot of great companies, both seasoned and first starting up, in Chicago. Chicago is becoming a hotbed for the startup community and the competition is continuing to grow. We are excited to be part of this competitive market and to be part of these historic neighborhoods…here’s to continued success and growth!
