JPAR Leaders Among the 2020 Swanepoel Power 200

JP & Associates REALTORS® (JPAR) Founder and CEO of Vesuvius Holdings, JP Piccinini, and JPAR and Vesuvius Holdings President, Geoff Lewis, were recently honored as among the 2020 Swanepoel Power 200.

Published annually by T3 Sixty, the publishers of the Real Estate Almanac, the list features the most powerful leaders in the residential real estate brokerage industry that have made an impact on the industry over the past year.

The 2020 edition of the list sees Piccinini in the 92nd spot for having founded the company in 2011 and the remarkable growth it has seen since, with 1,500 agents currently doing nearly $2.7 billion in annual sales while operating an agent flat-fee model.

Lewis, who became Vesuvius Holdings president in 2019, is at rank 159 in the list, in which he was cited for his role in overseeing the 46 JPAR offices across many states such as Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, New Mexico, Texas, and the Carolinas. The publication also cited Lewis’ previous work in RE/MAX for 13 years, having served as its president as well.

In choosing the people who comprise the 2020 list, Stefan Swanepoel, editor in chief of the Swanepoel Power 200, remarked, “Power is not a popularity contest. It is not based on a single statistic such as headcount, office count or revenue…The SP200 is based on a great deal of research. Our team analyzes hundreds of bios, annual reports and transactional and sales volume data. We send hundreds of requests for additional information, personally verifying announcements, stats, and actions that took place over the past year.”

The Swanepoel Power 200 is considered to be the most meaningful and accurate reflection of power and influence in the residential real estate brokerage industry.

JP & Associates REALTORS® has built a company that focuses on putting agents first. Opening in 2011, JPAR is taking the real estate industry by storm and earning accolades such as Top 10 Hottest Franchise (according to Inc.), a three-time Inc. 5000 honoree (2019: #1004), and the Fastest-Growing 100% Commission Brokerage and Franchise in the USA (according to Real Trends 500). Since offering franchise services in 2018, JPAR has expanded to 11 states in addition to the brokerage in Texas.
