Darcie Novak, CEO of The Big Life Team, joins the PLACE network

Bellingham, WA; July 30, 2021 — PLACE, a tech-enabled real estate platform that partners exclusively with top producers to empower business growth and profitability, announced today that The Big Life Team is now powered by PLACE.

The Big Life Team is led by CEO Darcie Novak, based in Iron Range, MN, and extends their service east to Duluth, MN. During the past 17 years, Novak and her team have built a reputation of being client-centric, respectful, and growth-minded. Passionate about service and doing the right thing, their production continues to grow, serving almost 200 families in 2020, resulting in approximately $1 million in gross revenue.

Novak credits her team’s success and growth to passion. 

“I compare our team to the ‘principle of liking’. When you are passionate about what you do, it becomes contagious. Our team members are excited about serving others, being a resource for our clients and community, and growing something big. That attracts other stellar real estate professionals and clients,” Novak explained. “It’s not about money, it’s about serving and doing the right thing.” 

Novak selected the PLACE platform to power her team’s trajectory because of the environment filled with growth-minded, top producers who both her agents and she can learn from. In addition, she will integrate PLACE’s value stack — systems, technology, training, and core services — to streamline her business, resulting in faster business growth and an even more exceptional client experience. 

“We have known Darcie for at least four years through training and education opportunities,” PLACE Co-Founder Ben Kinney said. “Because she frequently travels to the industry’s top trainings, she has participated in several of our company’s events and programs. She shows up, stands out, and commits to constant business and personal growth. She will flourish in PLACE.” 

As The Big Life Team begins their journey in PLACE, a top priority will be attracting top talent to key positions. Novak recognizes that PLACE will help her build a legacy business by creating limitless career opportunities for others. 

“Darcie is a savvy business owner who is humble and cares about people. She naturally attracts talent and that will be amplified by PLACE’s benefits, Opportunity and Leverage Models, and talent consulting and systems,” PLACE Co-Founder Chris Suarez said. “She has a goal of building a legacy and we have the path for her to do so. That alignment is the sign of a strong partnership and we are excited to welcome her agents and her to PLACE.”
