Eleventh-generation New Yorker, Chip Hodgkins, simplifies business systems with the PLACE platform
“This work can be tough, and I love that PLACE values grit in a positive way.”
SYRACUSE, N.Y., April 2023 — PLACE, the industry’s only all-in-one business services and technology platform for top teams at any brokerage, announced today Chip Hodgkins and the Hodgkins Homes Team of Hunt Real Estate ERA, are now powered by PLACE. PLACE improves profitability and production to make running a real estate business easier.
Chip Hodgkins is a top Realtor® who owns and operates the Hodgkins Homes Team in Central New York. With over 20 years of real estate experience, he has helped more than 2,500 clients. In 2022, Hodgkins closed $32 million in sales volume through 121 transactions.
Hodgkins’ business is well-recognized within his brokerage — in 2019, he received the National Designation for Outstanding Performance; in 2021, his team was named no. 1 in sales within Central and Northern New York and ranked within the top 10 in 2022. Hodgkins was also named in RealTrends’ 2019 and 2021 “America’s Best Real Estate Professionals” lists.
After Hodgkins graduated from college, he moved to France and worked in the hospitality industry. He managed event operations across Western Europe, Central America, the Caribbean, and New York City.
Within his first year, Hodgkins was a top New York agent building a real estate team to assist business overload. He found a coach, organized his team structure, and started prospecting at a higher level, which led him to PLACE. “This work can be tough, and I love that PLACE values grit in a positive way,” Hodgkins said.
He’s relieved to have a single services platform, so he no longer bears the technical responsibility of updating or recreating systems. “Our training, processes, and systems were all weighing on my shoulders,” Hodgkins said. “PLACE provides the most proficient and simple platform we’ve used. Now my agents can improve their skills and achieve greater success faster than they could without PLACE.”
While a fantastic mentor, Hodgkins needs more training for his agents. With PLACE, his team has unlimited, all-level training tailored to the current market. “PLACE can teach us how to build strong relationships with builders, developers, and property managers,” Hodgkins said. “I’m excited to mastermind with such a high caliber of real estate professionals who are now my PLACE Partners.”
“PLACE provides the most proficient and simple platform we’ve used. Now my agents can improve their skills and achieve greater success faster than they could without PLACE.”
“Chip and his team have a passion for helping their community develop and grow,” said Ben Kinney, co-founder of PLACE. “They have faith in each other and their work, and plugging into PLACE culture will strengthen those relationships.”
