What You Can Accomplish

Regardless of whether you are just starting out or making a mid-career pivot, It’s important to define not only what you are good at, but what you want to achieve. 

If you feel stuck or lost in the sea of faceless job boards, we can help you re-energize your search by identifying creative new approaches and techniques. 

Learn how to earn your real estate license by completing a pre-licensing course, passing the state exam, fulfilling requirements, and staying updated with ongoing education.

We are a proud DoD SkillBridge Partner, and we can sponsor you for our Partner real estate teams across the U.S., making sure you are receiving both high quality training and support as you transition into the civilian sector and your next career. 

In high performance real estate teams, we recognize that our businesses can only grow as much as we do. We invest in both personal and professional development, and you’ll be surrounded by a culture of leaders. Leadership development coaching is available later in your growth with us.

In our community platform, you’ll be able to connect with others who are going through the same phase of their career as they work to grow their real estate careers. You’ll connect with other SkillBridge members, Veterans, military and Veteran spouses, and members of our extended military community–moms, dads, kids, grandkids, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts and friends who want to serve on the homefront by making sure that their community members can confidently own a stake in their country by owning their own home.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to the most pressing questions.

Where do I start?

Go to our careers page and apply.
If you are signing up through SkillBridge, you’ll find our team through the SkillBridge Partners site.

How long will it take to get my license?

Depends on your location. 
For most parts of the US, plan for 1-2 months if it is your primary focus. 

What are my expected costs?

You’ll have low to no expenses. Most real estate agents spend 40-90% of their commission on expenses to run their business. These expenses typically include salaries, technology, marketing and advertising, supply costs, signage, photography, lead generation, training, coaching and systems. With PLACE, your gross income is your net income. 

How will I do more business by partnering with PLACE?

The combination of our training, technology, systems, leads, accountability, coaching, and brand will give you the tools to outperform the average agent with 10 years of experience. The top new agents on our team consistently close between 24 and 75 homes in their first full calendar year on the team. Contrast that with the national agent average
of 10 to 12 deals per year after a decade in the industry.

What will my schedule look like?

Your first 6-12 months will be very busy! And it gets better! In year one, you are learning, shadowing, absorbing, and doing. Then your knowledge, skills, and habits kick in with our systems. Systems make the ordinary extraordinary. As a member of PLACE, the combination of systems and leveraging all of the team’s resources means you have more time available to do what you get paid the most for – listing appointments and buyer consultations. Spend the remainder of your time doing the things you enjoy most with the people you love the most.

What other opportunities will I have?

Our unique Opportunity Model is designed so that every team member can build a team within our team that is more profitable and successful than the largest teams in the US. Imagine having your own  showing specialist,  administrative support, ISA, and listing agent – all while working with us. Additionally, our most successful agents earn the right to become partners in business and in real estate.

Where will I find clients to work with?

Our proven Lead Generation Model is a true partnership – with both an agent component and a team component. By plugging into our systems, following our models, and utilizing our tools, we expect you to generate and close 1-2 transactions per month from your sphere connections, open houses, and prospecting levers (calls, circle prospecting, For Sale By Owners, Make Me Move, Expireds, Canceled, etc). If you complete your weekly lead generation activities and regularly attend our Power-Up/ Stand-Up and scripts, you qualify for team leads from websites, digital advertising, sign calls, our inside sales division, referrals, etc. This should contribute an additional 1-2 transactions per month.

Can I eventually grow my own real estate team?

Love this question. Yes! There is a growth path from day one to help you grow from an Agent to an Associate to a Partner to a Senior Partner to a Managing Partner and to an Equity Partner. Along the way, PLACE will help you build your team within a team, and if it’s the right move,  then your own Partner team. While doing that, you’ll have opportunities in Revenue sharing, stock options, earning employee level healthcare benefits, hiring showing agents, adding your own admin support, becoming a real estate coach, and potentially become a leader in PLACE!
