Cesi Pagano and Associates Properties International joins the PLACE network

Bellingham, WA; July 26, 2021 — PLACE, a tech-enabled real estate platform that partners exclusively with top producers to empower business growth and profitability, announced today that Cesi Pagano and Associates Properties International is now powered by PLACE.

Cesi Pagano and Associates is located in South Coastal Orange County and serves all of Orange County. They have dominated the market since 2001, helping more than 3,500 families. In 2020 alone, they closed $133 million in real estate volume resulting in $2.6 million in gross revenue. In addition to her luxury real estate sales business, CEO Cesi Pagano is also part owner of a real estate brokerage in Laguna Niguel and a shareholder in another brokerage located in Newport Beach. The team has been named in the Top 100 businesses for Keller Williams for more than 20 years. 

The energetic group is composed of savvy real estate professionals who are industry and local market experts. Well known for their professionalism, most of the agents had strong sales and corporate experience before moving into real estate. Pagano believes in attracting visionaries who see opportunities in real estate and then providing them a path to grow. Those visionaries are attracted to Pagano because of her reputation amongst her peers and clients that has fortified over the last three decades, plus her commitment to their growth. 

“When I hire, it is with intention for growth. PLACE provides a clear path for my agents to grow beyond sales,” Pagano explained. “My team is focused and driven. They will thrive in PLACE’s environment that provides the systems and training to help them build their own big businesses and is enhanced by the ongoing collaboration with other top producers.” 

“We have long respected Cesi for her business and reputation in the industry. That was reinforced when we met her team. Cesi has hired ridiculously talented agents,” PLACE Co-founder Chris Suarez said. “As we look at building their futures, we are confident they will flourish with the defined paths in our Opportunity and Leverage models.”  

Cesi Pagano and Associates focuses on driving value to their clients. As Pagano looks to the future, she recognizes that as the industry changes, PLACE’s consumer experience will be more important than ever. 

“Cesi’s view of the real estate industry is similar to ours,” PLACE Co-Founder Ben Kinney shared. “She built her business on systems, she is intentional about developing her team members and she is focused on the consumer experience. These are core tenets of PLACE. We are honored to welcome Cesi Pagano and Associates.”
