The Seattle Seahawks demonstrated their value again last night, excelling in the face of pressure with a 13-10 win over the Detroit Lions. Given the franchise’s continued success, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the Puget Sound Business Journal recently featured a print article asking questions about their future. As the article describes, “the Seahawks have ascended in recent years to the upper echelon of the NFL. Such growth isn’t easy to sustain. We asked executives of some of Washington’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies to share a bit of advice regarding what it takes to stay on top.”

One of those advisers was Dean Jones, CEO & President of Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty, whose company made the Journal‘s list for the fourth consecutive year. As Jones remarked, “open communication is critical because the best calls can originate from the front lines and not a playbook. Remain nimble. Be confident in what differentiates your team and resource talent on its terms so it flourishes organically.”
