5Market Realty honored as 2021 Bulldog 100 Winner

Award Recognizes 5Market Realty as one of the fastest-growing businesses owned or operated by UGA Alumni


The 2021 Bulldog 100 includes companies from over two dozen industries based across the country, though 81 are based in Georgia. Business featured include agriculture, construction, health care, nonprofits, and software.

Each year, Bulldog 100 applicants are measured by their business’ compounded annual growth rate during a three-year period. The 2021 Bulldog 100 list is based on submitted financial information for 2017-19. The Atlanta office of Warren Averett CPAs and Advisors, a Bulldog 100 partner since the program began in 2009, verified the information submitted by each company.

The UGA Alumni Association will host the annual Bulldog 100 Celebration virtually Feb. 11, 2021, to celebrate these alumni business leaders and count down the ranked list to ultimately reveal the No. 1 fastest-growing business.

5Market Realty is Proud to Be Honored in The 2021 bulldog 100!

“We were excited to hear that our company would be recognized in the Bulldog 100. It is special because I and many of our agents attended the University of Georgia.  Personally, I fell in love with Athens and UGA as a child and after graduating in 2004 I decided to make Athens my home.  We started our company in 2015 and thanks to a lot of hard work from our team, we have earned a spot in the 2021 Bulldog 100.

Our company mission is to provide our clients with the best service and expert-level knowledge in Athens area real estate.  Our industry is full of competitors, but what truly separates 5Market Realty is the value we bring to our clients.  By working hard to be the most knowledgeable company in our area, we build long term relationships with clients by establishing a high level of trust.  The Athens market moves fast, and people need a real estate professional with their finger on the pulse of the market.  Not only when they buy and sell real estate, but when it comes to long term plans or goals with real estate.  By being a trusted resource to our clients we can help them plan for their future and meet other financial goals through real estate.”

Scott Talley, Principal Broker and Partner, 5Market Realty

“These alumni demonstrate the incredible value of a degree from UGA and we are committed to continuing the tradition of recognizing their achievements and connecting them with current students, who will become the next generation of entrepreneurs. These leaders inspire us by bringing better solutions and building stronger communities, so we will ensure they are celebrated even as necessity requires this to be done virtually.”

Meredith Gurley Johnson, Executive Director of the UGA Alumni Association
