Serving thousands of Orange County residents over the last 40 years, Seven Gables has been nominated three years in a row as a Top Workplace in Orange County, calculated based on employee input. Over 1,300 Orange County companies are invited every year to participate, representing 48,000 total employees and Seven Gables was the first mid-size company to have been nominated three years in a row.

This award is no small feat and stems from Seven Gables’ ten core values and is fostered through an environment in which agents are excited to go to work. Enshrined on walls over all the Seven Gables offices, brand promises like having fun, showing gratitude, embrace learning and exceeding expectations hang as simple reminders.

It might just be the perfect marriage between happiness and driven employees that awarded Seven Gables the Top Workplace nomination three years in a row. Always challenging the status quo in real estate, agents at Seven Gables have access to innovative tools that connect buyers and sellers and ultimately benefit Seven Gables’ clients. Using their intense focus on primarily local markets, agents also have access to a worldwide network and association with similar market leaders.

“We’re in a transformational time. Things are changing all around us. How can we think that we can sit still? We have got to be clear about that! It’s the law of incrementalism: little steps. That’s how we manage.” Mike Hickman, president and CEO

Seven Gables is among the top six real estate brokerages in Orange County based on real estate sales and has been the leading brokerage in the luxury market for over 41 years in their primary markets. The results are driven by Seven Gables’ associates who align with the values.

A rare culture that thrives on high-positive energy permeates throughout the company. Before awarded Top Workplace three years in a row, no other real estate company had ever accomplished this since the inception of the award. With a focus primarily on who each associate is rather than what results they drive, it is no surprise that Seven Gables has been recognized three years in a row.
