PLACE Welcomes Anne Kennedy

Bellingham, WA, August 12, 2021 — PLACE, a tech-enabled real estate platform that partners exclusively with top producers to empower business growth and profitability, announced today that Anne Kennedy has joined the network as a Growth Leader. She will be responsible for attracting top real estate businesses to the PLACE network.

Kennedy graduated from the California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo with a degree in architecture. After launching a successful architecture career, she recognized her love for business and pursued her MBA from the University of California at Berkeley, Haas School of Business. 

She parlayed her education, experience and combined passion for homes and business into a tremendous career in real estate including sales, coaching, consulting and teaching that spans two decades. She is co-owner of multiple real estate brokerages in the San Francisco and Napa Valley region and has been named one of the Top 100 Most Influential Women in Silicon Valley by the Silicon Valley Business Journal. In addition, she is part of the prestigious Top Agent Network. 

“Anne is a savvy business woman who is passionate about consulting sophisticated real estate business owners,” PLACE Chief Growth Officer Katie Benson said. “There is no doubt that she will make a tremendous impact for future partners and for all of us at PLACE.” 

Kennedy is attracted to the PLACE value proposition for a multitude of reasons but most importantly, the opportunity for agents to scale profitable businesses and build wealth. 

“The PLACE model is unique. We are not asking top producers to change brokerage, we are bringing them an opportunity,” Kennedy explained. “They might wish to transition out of the business or grow it larger than ever before. Regardless of their preferred path, PLACE provides the infrastructure and the cohort to do so.” 

“I have known Anne for many years,” PLACE Co-Founder Ben Kinney said. “She is passionate about providing wealth building and business opportunities for real estate business owners. She is a phenomenal leader and coach. We are fortunate to add her to our PLACE family.”
