Darcie VanderZanden acquires foundational resources for her business, Envision Real Estate Group
“PLACE gives me the tools to move forward.”
PORTLAND, Ore., February 2023 — PLACE, the real estate industry’s only all-in-one business services and technology platform for top teams at any brokerage, announced today that Darcie VanderZanden and Envision Real Estate Group are now powered by PLACE. PLACE improves profitability and production to make running a real estate business easier.
VanderZanden, the principal broker at Envision Real Estate Group, is an industry leader with over 20 years of experience. More than 90% of her business has come from repeat business and referrals over the years. During 2022, VanderZanden participated in closing $65 million in volume, helping more than 100 families. Throughout her career, she’s participated in over $500 million in lifetime sales.
VanderZanden entered the real estate business part-time in 2000 when her children were young, and then in 2013, she made real estate her full-time career. “I got a coach and that changed everything,” she said. “I was successful, but coaching gave me the confidence to take it to the next level. I have the philosophy that if you take care of people, people will take care of you.”
Today, VanderZanden applies her data-driven mind to the needs of her clients. “There is a lot of emotion in buying a home but having all the data and knowing the bottom line is important for our clients,” said VanderZanden.
Her background in coaching helped Darcie realize that the changing market presented an opportunity to build her team. “I knew I was going to be fine no matter what happened with the market because I have built a sphere-based business,” said VanderZanden. “But, our agents weren’t in the same position and struggled to succeed as the market tightened. PLACE will help me rebuild.”
For VanderZanden, 2023 is about new beginnings. Opening Envision Real Estate Group, partnering with PLACE, and growing a successful team is her agenda. “PLACE gives me the tools to move forward,” she said. “PLACE is the accelerator I need, complete with the support system and backend handled by those who excel in that part of the business, so I concentrate on my clients and my agents.”

“Darcie knows how to humbly grow, overcome, and succeed and I welcome her to PLACE,” said Ben Kinney, co-founder of PLACE. “She has great respect and appreciation for her team and clients; I know that her servant-heart will help her achieve her growth goals.”
“This is a huge leap of faith for my team and me,” said VanderZanden. “I first put my toe in real estate in 2000 and it took me a while to be all in, but with PLACE, it’s no more toes. It is a full-on jump into the deep end. I can change people’s lives who come onto our team and that is super important to me.”
