A Letter from the Founders
The Inaugural Edition of PLACE Magazine
Welcome to the first issue of PLACE Magazine, a collection of industry insights and updates, remarkable agent success stories, and most importantly a celebration of our shared exponential growth. In this inaugural edition, we invite our readers to explore PLACE as a leading PropTech organization while also learning about the top 20% of real estate teams across the United States and Canada whom we are fortunate to call our partners. With a full-stack technology and business services platform designed to streamline operations while helping CEOs run their real estate businesses more profitably, PLACE simplifies the real estate transaction for both our partners and their clients. In 2022, we demonstrated strong partner growth and expanded our network with thriving teams including Dow Realty Group of New Hampshire, The Nicole Gary Team of New York, and Vija Real Estate of Washington. PLACE is expected to double our partnership count year-over-year by the end of quarter four. Additionally, our internal corporate headquarters expanded to more than 630 employees dedicated to helping our partners power the future of the real estate industry. A behind-the-scenes support system, they provide PLACE Partners with intuitive technology, human resources, recruiting, marketing/branding, accounting, legal and agent-training support. New members we’ve welcomed to our leadership team this year include Emiliano Delucia (Chief Technology Officer), Abby Powell (Chief Marketing Officer), Suzanne Colvin (Chief Financial Officer), Vija Williams (Head of Industry), and promoted former CFO, Ross Clawson, to Chief Administration Officer. The past few years have been busy and packed with growth. PLACE is valued at over $1B, thanks to a $100 million investment from Goldman Sachs, with participation from 3L Capital and Viewpoint Ventures, just two years after launching the industry’s only brokerage-agnostic platform of its kind in 2019. In this inaugural edition of PLACE Magazine, we’re honored to spotlight just a few of our outstanding partners. These real estate consultants are leading the industry using the highest-quality recruiting tools, unbelievable coaching and development, paired with unparalleled innovative technology services. And our journey is only beginning! We owe our incredible growth thus far to PLACE Partners and their teams who share our unrelenting commitment to delivering the dream of homeownership everywhere, with simplified solutions and superior service.
