Red Door Title, the fastest growing company on this year’s 10 to Watch list, takes this to the extreme with a three-year average growth rate of 507.1 percent.  The experience of the founders and a list of loyal industry partners coupled with a growing home sales market fuels the early success of this 3-year-old company.

Melanie Tromblee nagged and cajoled Annette Goldberg into becoming her business partner. The two were working for a title company, and Tromblee felt the company’s policies made it hard to serve clients as well as she would like. Goldberg was content and the thought of leaving a steady paycheck was unappealing.

Finally, Tromblee promised Goldberg a steady salary to seal the deal. That gamble is paying off big time. Within a week of opening, they needed a third person to help with the workload. Within a month, they were a staff of five.

The company hit profitability in its second year. Tromblee expects revenue to surpass $2.5 million this year. Since opening in June 2012, the business relocated its main office three times to accommodate growth, Goldberg says.RDT_nhBusMag
