JP & Associates REALTORS (JPAR) is pleased to announce the hiring of Mark Johnson as the firm’s new Chief Operating Officer. Previously, Mark held the position of Vice President of Business Development and Coaching Success for the Tom Ferry Coaching Organization in California and has now brought his expertise to Dallas.
JP & Associates REALTORS is honored to be a part of the virtuous efforts taking place at the International Newcomer Academy (INA) in Fort Worth, TX. When JPAR CEO JP Piccinini learned about the school and its many children who have come from war and civil unrest in other countries, he felt an immediate connection to the cause. In response, JPAR opened a full PC lab at INA to be used by refugee families, in hopes that they will be able to move forward into healing and prosperity.
“As an immigrant myself, I know the struggles that come with culture shock and moving to a foreign land and having to learn a new language,” Piccinini said. “I’m just thankful I could be a part of helping these kids and families along in pursuing the American Dream.”
Enter Giuseppe (JP) Piccinini. This Plano-based, Italian-born real estate guru is making waves in the local—and national—real estate industry.
Founder of JP and Associates Realtors (JPAR), he is at the helm of DFW’s fastest growing brokerage firm—whose revenue exceeded the billion-dollar mark in 2017. In fact, JPAR is one of the top-growing brokerages in the nation, expected to be a contender for the fastest growing brokerage in the country in 2017. The company was also recently ranked within Dallas Morning News’ Top 100 Places to Work list where he placed number 2 in the CEO of the Year category.
In Frisco on Sunday, kids, who most of the year make do with much less, are treated to a party without limits.
“Tonight, it’s over-the-top; but, we have a reason to give them an over-the-top party,” said JP Piccinini, CEO of JP & Associates Realtors. “We’ve been blessed beyond measure, and we felt like we need to give back.”
You may just chuckle and toss those credit card offers that come in the mail for your fourth grader, but there may be something more nefarious at play: identity theft.
According to the Identity Theft Assistance Center and the Javelin Strategy & Research group, one in 40 families with children under 18 had at least one child whose personal information was compromised. It all starts with the child’s Social Security number, which is then paired with a different name, birthdate and address to apply for credit. This is called a synthetic identity, and is very hard to detect.
Top Growing Real Estate Brokerage Expands Office Space in Premier Plano Location.
JP & Associates Realtors (JPAR) is relocating to a larger office in the Shops at Legacy in Plano, located at the corner of Tennyson Pkwy and the Dallas North Tollway. The new office will match the company’s vast growth, going from a 1200-sq.ft. space to a 4000-sq.ft. space. As JPAR expands and acquires new clients and employees, the new office will allow them to be more productive and enjoy their work in a premier location in the metroplex.
Last year, Frisco-based JP and Associates Realtors blew past the billion-dollar mark in sales, and its founder, JP Piccinini, can’t stop smiling.
“When you think about it, that’s a thousand million dollars on a goal where we were doubling our sales volume,” agency owner Piccinini says. “Looking back, it was an audacious goal. But we were obsessed by it. And we made it over the threshold by $10 million.”
Nine of our 15 top companies had one thing in common: Their employees all placed direction from their leaders as the most important quality in making their companies an outstanding workplace.
All three CEOs of the Year live up to this.
Employees at JP and Associates Realtors, Simpli.fi and Benchmark Bank/Private Wealth/Title say their bosses are inspirational, lead by example, are easy to approach, take ideas seriously and make productivity fun.
That’s why JP Piccinini, Frost Prioleau and Mike Barnett are our leaders of the year in the large, midsize and small categories.
In a climate of discord and natural disasters, this year’s winners of The Dallas Morning News Top 100 Places to Work competition used harmony and good will to marshal their troops to a higher calling, lift spirits and improve bottom lines.
Our winners treat employees with respect, use a high moral compass and provide the necessities of career advancement. That’s what their workers told us in anonymous, uncensored surveys.

I remember the first time I met J.P. Piccinini at his office in Plano. He was hosting a Realtor event, a ribbon cutting, with special guest Fredrick Eklund, the Swedish-born New York City real estate broker, Bravo TV reality star of Million Dollar Listing, former IT entrepreneur in his native Sweden, and non-fiction writer. He told me to go get a photo with Fredrick, make myself at home. I did. I knew, and I think I wrote at the time: Read More at CANDYSDIRT

“Hot” and “Healthy are two words real estate experts are using to describe the Collin and Dalls county markets this year. With a sleuth of corporate headquarter relocations and a fast-developing arts scene, coupled with an influx of millennials and baby boomers, Plan is America’s next boomtown. As growth contines to escalate, the Plano-Frisco area is what real estate experts call as seller’s market. Simply put, demand outweighs supply. A lack of homes to sell mean that homes priced in Plano and Frisco will get multiple offers-and in order for a broker to be succesful in making a sal, experience, skills and know-how are key Read Full Article
When top broker Italian-born J.P. (Giuseppe) Piccinini was asked to open a new EXIT Realty franchise in Texas more than five years ago, he thought, “Well, Gary Keller had done Keller Williams, Steve Morris had done Exit Realty and Dave Liniger, Re/Max.” Could he join their ranks instead? “I am an entrepreneur at heart; I wanted to carve my own path — if I fail, I fail, if I succeed, I succeed.” And his experience today has exceeded his expectations.
