Agent Network Growth

Fathom experienced a remarkable 18% increase in its agent network during the first quarter of 2023.

Despite the backdrop of a challenging residential real estate market, we continue to provide a compelling value proposition through innovation and an industry-leading commission model that continues to be resilient in this environment. In fact, March brought us our strongest growth through agent referrals in our company’s history.”
