PropertyForce Named One of the 2022 Best Workplaces in Real Estate™, Ranking #9 by Great Place to Work® and Fortune

HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. — Great Place to Work® and Fortune have honored PropertyForce as one of the 2022 Best Workplaces in Real Estate™. This is PropertyForce’s first time being named to this prestigious list, this year coming in at 9th place. Earning a spot means that PropertyForce is one of the best companies to work for in the country.  

The Best Workplaces in Real Estate award is based on analysis of survey responses from over 23,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies in the real estate industry. In that survey, 100% of PropertyForce’s employees said PropertyForce is a great place to work. This number is 43 points higher than the average U.S. company.  

“This recognition is a testament to our culture which really defines all that we do,” said Neil Solomon, President and CEO of PropertyForce. “Our commitment to excellence in our industry stems from that same commitment to our employees. Building trust, giving sincere recognition and helping employees achieve a greater work-life balance are our priorities, not just aspirations.”     

The Best Workplaces in Real Estate is highly competitive. Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected the list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were only considered if they had been a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization.  

Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is. 

“These companies have adapted to the challenges of an ever-changing workplace by their commitment to inclusive, high-trust cultures where employees are treated as human beings first and foremost,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Congratulations to the Best Workplaces in Real Estate.” 

Earlier this year, PropertyForce was named one of the Best Small Workplaces and was certified as a Great Place to Work.

PropertyForce CEO, Oliver Seidler, Reaches Amazon Best Selling Author Status.

A Renegade’s Rules takes readers through Oliver’s journey from waiting tables to owning his own real estate company.

Hallandale Beach, Fla. (June. 29, 2021) – Oliver Seidler, founder and CEO of PropertyForce, has released a book, A Renegade’s Rules, which follows the journey of how a C student created an A life. And how you can too!

A Renegade’s Rules recounts Seidler’s journey from waiting tables to heading up a company that pioneered the wholesale real estate industry. It speaks on how to respond when things don’t go according to plan, how to deal with people who screw you over, and what to do about the fear that’s determined to hold you back. Seidler had to learn these lessons the hard way. He started his own real estate company right before the recession, fought like crazy to keep it alive during the lean years, then saw rapid growth and expansion in the years that followed. He describes how to reach a life filled with more: options, excitement, challenge, fulfillment, and purpose.

“I want the people who have a deep sense of their own abilities and their company’s ability to succeed. I want people who love to compete. And I want people who are self-starters—they find a way to complete every job without complaining, procrastinating, or criticizing others. They anticipate problems, and they possess integrity, a quality that’s nearly impossible to teach.”

Oliver Seidler, Amazon Best Selling Author and CEO of PropertyForce

 Within just one week of releasing the book, it became an Amazon Best Seller in various categories. Amazon is the largest book retailer in the world. They carry over 33 million titles and ship them almost anywhere in the world.

“After multiple years of putting together and finalizing A Renegade’s Rules, I am so excited and grateful that my novel was able to reach Amazon Best Seller status. Having ‘#1 Best Seller’ next to a book about my life’s journey is something I never could have dreamed of. ”
