Daryl Owen partners with PLACE to reach exponential growth
“The combination of resources that comes with a partnership is incredible — the collaboration, network access, systems, tools, tech, and thought leadership — and will increase my team’s productivity exponentially.”
LONG BEACH, Calif., May 2023 — PLACE, the industry’s only all-in-one business services and technology platform for top teams at any brokerage, announced today that Daryl Owen and Nickle Team of Nationwide Real Estate Executives are now powered by PLACE. PLACE improves profitability and production to make running a real estate business easier.
Daryl Owen is the owner and operator of Nickle Team and the founder of seven different real estate businesses, including Nationwide Real Estate Executives (NRE), one of the largest independently owned U.S. brokerages. In addition, Owen owns an investment and property management company, a commercial real estate firm, an escrow company, a technology company, and a school that provides real estate licensing and education to over 10,000 students.
When Owen was 14 years old, he was already dreaming of a future in real estate. At 19 years old, he purchased his first investment property while attending college and managing a Papa John’s storefront. In 2006, Owen earned his real estate license and committed to a new long-term goal to own a massive brokerage one day. As a successful solo agent, Owen closed nine transactions monthly and quickly became one of his brokerage’s top agents nationwide.
Today, Owen’s dedication to his team’s success is unparalleled. He helps his new agents succeed in their first buyer consultations and listing appointments by personally attending the meetings. “I feel most fulfilled as a supporting role in the others’ journey to build a life in real estate that they couldn’t otherwise build.”
Although Owen loves creating systems, he knows building more and continuously updating them sacrifices time that could be spent executing growth plans. As he looks to the future, he understands his need for more systems to promote scale. Owen credits each big breakthrough he’s had in business to “completely surrendering to someone else’s process,” which is how a PLACE partnership came into the picture.
By partnering with PLACE, Owen and his team will have the advantage of proven tools and models to help them reach their goals. “I don’t have the systems ready to help us reach our goal of $1 billion in annual sales volume, but PLACE does.” Owen also feels PLACE will help streamline processes so that he can increase his agent count and impact more lives positively.
“I don’t have the systems ready to help us reach our goal of $1 billion in annual sales volume, but PLACE does.”
He’s also excited to be associated with PLACE, a company like no other. “I love the PLACE vision,” Owen said. “PLACE is disrupting the industry in a positive way that I haven’t seen before – empowering teams and agents to develop stronger consumer relationships. It’s what makes PLACE as a company so special and why I want to be involved early on in its growth.”
“Daryl is an exceptional, humble businessman,” said Ben Kinney, co-founder of PLACE. “He and I share a drive to change people’s lives on a huge scale and I’m so thankful to share a mission and path to growth with Daryl.”
“Daryl is passionate about helping everyone in the industry at all levels,” said Chris Suarez, co-founder of PLACE. “He has taken an innovative approach to mentoring and growing his people. We are excited to partner with Daryl and change the industry with agent and consumer empowerment together.”
