Champion Realty has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Washington Post. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement.

Champion Realty placed ninth on a list of similar sized companies. Champion also came in first among real-estate companies in the same size category. Last year Champion ranked 7th in the survey, and in 2015, Champion’s ranking was 17.

“It is quite an honor to have the Washington Post confirm what we already believed – that Champion is a great place to work,” said Jon Coile, president and CEO of Champion. “The company is really a reflection of the people who work here and we’re very fortunate to have some of the kindest, most empathetic, and committed real estate professionals in our ranks.”

Nearly 350 local companies were surveyed, with 54,204 employees responding. The survey, conducted by Workplace Dynamics for the Washington Post, included 23 questions asking employees to rate their jobs, the company leadership and the health of their organization.

Agents who work at Champion emphasize the supportive culture as key to their success.

“I became an agent at Champion almost four years ago after a career as a paralegal, and my manager provided unbelievable support as I learned the ropes,” said Marina Yousefian, who was Champion’s number one agent in 2016 and received a Lifetime Achievement Award for $25 million in settled Champion sales. “It’s a great atmosphere—no one pushes or micromanages, but they are always there to help you, day or night.”

“Champion is a great local company because it’s big enough to matter in the marketplace but it’s small enough to care,” said Matt Wyble, a Champion agent since 2010 and a winner of the coveted “Champion Legend” award for $100 million in settled Champion sales.  “We’re like a family, and we’re genuinely excited for each other’s successes—even though, when it comes right down to it, we compete with each other for business. It’s a very positive, supportive culture.”

Complete results from the Washington Post Survey were published in the Sunday, June 18th edition of the newspaper.
