About Us - JPAR

About Us

JP & Associates REALTORS® has experienced quite the climb since the company’s launch in 2011. As a former real estate agent and top producer, founder Giuseppe (JP) Piccinini’s plan was simple, build a brokerage catered towards everything he would want as an agent. With this concept in mind and a business model built upon productivity and service, JP & Associates REALTORS® continues to exceed the expectations of both its agents and customers alike.

As the largest independently owned company in Texas, we are proud to have serviced an outstanding portfolio of clients.  With over $2.6 billion in current sales, 1800 plus agents, and 40 offices (still growing), JP & Associates REALTORS® has received a plethora of notable accolades.  We have had the honor of being featured in Real Trends Top 500 Brokerages for volume and sales in the United States (top one percent for total sales), consecutively ranked on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing US companies, and named as one of the Top 100 Places to Work by The Dallas Morning News, all of which are just several recent accomplishments.

So, what do agents think about our company’s culture?  Well, JP & Associates REALTORS® has one of the highest retention rates in the industry. Over 90 percent of our agents stay and thrive here.  In an industry known for its turnover, we’re proud of this figure.

Among other tools and resources for successful careers, we offer our agents a 100% commission plan, training and mentorship programs, the latest in real estate technology, marketing, and management systems to grow and retain their business.
