Certified Evergreen™

John Burns Real Estate Consulting has officially been confirmed by Tugboat Institute to be a Certified Evergreen™ company.

John Burns Real Estate Consulting was the first company to receive the certification from the prestigious organization, Tugboat Institute.

Evergreen businesses are led by purpose-driven leaders with the grit and resourcefulness to build and scale private, profitable, enduring, and market-leading businesses that make a dent in the universe. Evergreen businesses put their people first and avoid raising capital that puts money before mission and imposes a growth-at-all-costs or exit-oriented mindset. They measure success by how well they deliver on their mission and they embody the Evergreen 7Ps.

Evergreen 7Ps

The Evergreen 7PS are the defining characteristics of Evergreen. The first three Ps – Purpose, Perseverance, and People First – define the character of the leaders and team. The last four P’s – Private, Profit, Paced Growth, and Pragmatic Innovation – reflect the long term strategy tenants of an Evergreen business.
