Century 21

Marsh Fisher and Art Bartlett started Century-21 in 1971. In a matter of ten years, the real estate company grew from one office to more than 7,000 worldwide branches. Marsh Fisher, 88, died in 2013, and Art Bartlett in 2009. They are widely credited with the transformation of the real estate market and the sale of the company to Trans World Corporation, in 1979. Century 21 was later sold by Trans World to Metropolitan Life Insurance. The firm was sold by Trans World to Hospitality Franchise Systems. It was worth $200 million. Century 21 had over 6000 branches in 11 different countries at the time it was sold.
