What does our team say about our company culture?

At our 2022 company strategy meeting, we asked all of our team members to write down several words to describe what they thought summarizes JBREC’s company culture well. The word cloud above illustrates the results of that team exercise.

Great Place To Work®-Certified™ (Sept 2022-Sept 2023)

94% of employees at John Burns Real Estate Consulting say it is a great place to work compared to 57% of employees at a typical US-based company.

It’s official! Thanks to our people, we’re proud to have earned Great Place to Work® Certification™.  Check out what our employees say makes working here so great by clicking here.

Results are from employee survey ran through Great Place to Work® in Fall 2022


About Great Place to Work Certification

Great Place to Work® Certification™ is the most definitive “employer-of-choice” recognition that companies aspire to achieve. It is the only recognition based entirely on what employees report about their workplace experience – specifically, how consistently they experience a high-trust workplace. Great Place to Work Certification is recognized worldwide by employees and employers alike and is the global benchmark for identifying and recognizing outstanding employee experience.

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.

We currently offer a summer internship program and partner with organizations like Fannie Mae’s Future Housing Leaders and The Bell Lap.

  • Fannie Mae’s Future Housing Leaders: Our interns have the opportunity to participate in Fannie Mae’s Future Housing Leaders and learn about other aspects of the residential housing market and opportunities within the industry.

They provide program athletes with career coaching and internship placement with industry leading companies. We partner with The Bell Lap to hire aspiring athletes who have desires and interests beyond sport. Similar to our summer internship program, the athletes have an opportunity to gain an understanding of our organization, industry, clients, and ultimately gain professional experience by working side-by-side with our team.
