JWilliams Staffing (JWS), the nation’s largest real estate recruitment agency, proudly marks its 20th anniversary, a significant milestone that reflects over two decades of shaping successful careers in the real estate industry. Since its establishment in 2004, JWS has been instrumental in creating over 22,000 thriving careers, serving more than 9,000 new home builders, property management companies, and industry partners through innovative staffing solutions.
JoAnne Williams, the Founder, President, and CEO of JWilliams Staffing, emphasized that the company's commitment goes beyond merely connecting candidates with jobs. "Our investment in this business involves creating long-term partnerships and fulfilling careers by connecting extraordinary, highly qualified industry professionals with mutually respected real estate employers."
JWS stands out with its robust training resources and tools prepared by experts across the country, showcasing the company’s dedication to helping individuals excel in their careers. The industry-leading curriculum includes videos and written lessons designed to prepare new home sales professionals for success.
Reflecting on the early days of JWilliams Staffing, JoAnne Williams shared her humble beginnings, having started as a team of one in California. "I moved to California as a single mom with two children and took a giant leap of faith in starting my company. I devoted half of my garage to serve as my office, and JWilliams Staffing was born." Williams credited her children, Michael and David, for playing pivotal roles in the company's development.
Jessica Littrell, Williams' daughter, made significant contributions during challenging times, including the Great Recession of 2008 and the COVID-19 shutdown in 2020. Littrell's dedication and industry involvement were crucial in leading the company through difficult periods. As JWilliams Staffing continued to grow, Williams focused on supporting the building industry's recovery from the Great Recession in 2010. Initiatives like "Connect" and strategic partnerships helped executives rebuild their networks, contributing to the industry's revitalization.
Over the years, JWilliams Staffing has garnered multiple industry accolades, including Fastest-Growing Private Company, OC Business Journal’s Top Workplace and Top 70 Women-Owned Business. The company's commitment to supporting the real estate industry earned JoAnne Williams recognition as Who’s Who in Builder and Developer Magazine and the Southern California BJ Stewart Women’s Achievement Award.
Joanna Rojas, EVP of Finance and Operations for JWilliams Staffing, highlighted Williams' focus on personal growth and fulfillment, making JWS a rewarding place to work. "JoAnne has inspired countless women over the past two decades – including me."
"I am incredibly proud to commemorate twenty years in this business and proud of the team leading our company into the future," said Williams. "We care deeply about making a difference, so we take the time to understand skills, provide valuable training and coaching, and ultimately identify the best opportunities. We do more than recruit and staff. We build futures."
JWilliams Staffing initiated its anniversary celebration at the JWS Annual Summit in October 2023, with additional commemorative activities planned for later in 2024.
