Everything falls into PLACE for Aaron Lebovic and the Expert Home Team
DENVER, July 2022 — PLACE, the all-inclusive real estate platform delivering intuitive technology and business services to top real estate professionals, announced today that Aaron Lebovic and the Expert Home Team of the greater Denver area have partnered with PLACE. PLACE partners with leading real estate teams, regardless of brokerage, in more than 100 locations across the United States and Canada.
A third-generation real estate agent and investor, Aaron Lebovic has a rich and varied background in all areas of real estate. He joined the family business in Chicago soon after graduating from college in 2002, and then moved to Colorado to invest there in 2007. In 2009, he co-founded Renav.com, a subscription and education-based website designed to assist Realtors and investors both help distressed homeowners, and to buy properties at foreclosure auctions. In 2014, when the foreclosure and short sales boom ended, Lebovic pivoted his business to a more traditional real estate model. “I had an extensive background in real estate, but had never represented a buyer or seller directly,” he explained. “But I had the experience and had already seen it all – both the good and the bad.”
“I want to work with people who show up, work hard, and do the right thing. Everything will fall into place when you do that.”
Lebovic spent 5 years leading and growing someone else’s team, and in 2019, he was ready to strike out on his own. He amicably parted ways with his partners and went back into production. “I did all the things that I had been teaching everyone else to do since 2014,” he said. “Starting from zero again, I closed 52 homes on my own in my first year back helping buyers and sellers, and ultimately realized I needed leverage.”
“PLACE is like an HOV lane instead of sitting in traffic by myself.”
In 2021, one of his most successful agents left. It was a turning point for Lebovic. “I had taught her all I knew and all the processes required to be successful,” he explained. “She worked hard and I didn’t have the right systems in place for her or the next steps ready. I could not provide the accountability and coaching that she really deserved.” He paused to think through what his future looked like and the 10-year vision for his business. Lebovic decided to go bigger to give the agents on his team the space to grow. “I had done it before,” he explained. “I had to think long and hard about what I wanted my future to look like. Going back to partnering with the right people, I knew I could go further, faster.”
Lebovic believes that partnering with PLACE will help him grow his business faster than he could on his own. “PLACE is like an HOV lane instead of sitting in traffic by myself,” he explained. “It is important to me to partner with PLACE so I can also fulfill my goal of pouring into others. I want to partner with agents who want to run a long-term sustainable business while also building generational wealth for themselves and those they love.” PLACE, he believes, will help new agents get into production faster, help create a fun, collaborative environment, and a better quality of life. “Together we can provide training, leads, structure, and accountability that most agents would not otherwise have,” he explained.
“Aaron is an incredible leader, always eager to share his experience and knowledge and I am happy he has chosen to partner with PLACE,” said Chris Suarez, co-founder of PLACE. “His coaching, training, and real estate expertise combined with the systems and accountability of PLACE will support rapid growth and immense value for both agents and clients.”
“We are so happy to welcome Aaron to PLACE,” said Ben Kinney, co-founder of PLACE. “He is an experienced leader, coach, mentor, investor, and agent who is dedicated to pouring into his team and clients. In partnership with PLACE, Aaron and his team are set up to grow and fulfill all of their professional and personal goals.”
