“Auburn University taught me a great deal about business and life in general,” said Glenn Phillips, CEO and Lead Economic Analyst at Lake Homes Realty. “To be honored as a Top Tiger four years in a row is the result of hard work and an innovative approach to lake real estate. Lake Homes Realty provides full-service, multi-state real estate brokerage services in 32 states with more states on the way. LakeHomes.com has more than 70,000 lake properties listed, totaling $30 billion.” In addition to the Top Tiger recognition from Auburn University, Inc.

Lake Homes Realty was honored as one of the top medium-revenue companies in the Top Tigers awards. Honorees must be led by an Auburn alumnus, been in business for at least four full years, have revenue of more than $500,000, and operate in a manner consistent with The Auburn Creed. Top Tigers are evaluated on year-over-year growth.
