Deb Pierce and The Red Star Team partner with PLACE to deliver consumer value at scale
Lafayette, La.; August 2022 — PLACE, the industry’s only all-inclusive platform delivering intuitive technology and business services to top real estate professionals, announced today that Deb Pierce and the Red Star Team are now powered by PLACE. PLACE provides a superior internal agent experience that allows the top 20% of real estate teams to streamline and scale their business, which, in turn, enhances the client experience. PLACE currently supports over 130 real estate businesses across the United States and Canada.
Deb Pierce, CEO and Team Leader of the Red Star Team based in Lafayette and serving all of South Louisiana plus the Alabama Gulf Coast, leads with intent. With a passion for seeing others grow and prosper, Deb enjoys making a difference in the lives of clients and team members. Known for her leadership and commitment to helping others, she believes that business is an avenue for personal growth. “My faith is my foundation for life,” she says. “Because of that, I see my business as an opportunity for our team members and others to discover and achieve their life mission.”
“This is the Red Star Team’s next evolution. Partnering with PLACE accelerates the opportunities for our team members and allows us to serve our clients at an even higher level.”
“I started a team very early in my real estate career because I knew that joining forces with others who were also committed to being experts in our profession while delivering excellent customer service would allow for a stronger impact in the community. I also knew that I was not wired to do any of this business alone,” said Deb.
Deb has exceptional negotiation, marketing, and people skills which were developed from her background of record-setting fundraising with local and national non-profit organizations as a regional fundraising director. She got her real estate license and went full-time as an agent in 2014. By 2019 , the Red Star Team ranked as the number one team in both volume and units sold across all brokerages for their area – and the number two team in Louisiana. The Red Star Team’s immense success has set the bar for real estate teams in their local market.
“PLACE allows me to help the Red Star Team’s agents live their biggest life, grow their wealth, and achieve their individual missions while giving back to their families and leaving a positive impact on our community.”
One of the things that drew Pierce to PLACE was the company’s focus on resources that help clients stay connected throughout the homeownership lifecycle. She is excited about the systems and models that PLACE provides and looks forward to providing a host of ancillary services to clients. “This is the Red Star Team’s next evolution. Partnering with PLACE accelerates the opportunities for our team members and allows us to serve our clients at an even higher level. The tools, systems, and partnership with an industry leader like PLACE will help our agents develop further and give us even greater tools to be lifetime advisors for our outstanding clients,” Pierce said.
According to Pierce, changes in her life and in her business have always brought about growth. Partnering with PLACE is the next step of growth for Pierce. “I am empowered by PLACE,” she explained. “It provides a framework and model that I get to plug into while the Red Star Team remains uniquely my business.”
Pierce sees the partnership with PLACE as a tool to continue setting the bar in her area and as a foundation for growth and expansion into other markets. “We want to continue to grow and to serve more families,” she explained. “PLACE allows me to help the Red Star Team’s agents live their biggest life, grow their wealth, and achieve their individual missions while giving back to their families and leaving a positive impact on our community.”
“I am delighted that Deb has partnered with PLACE,” said Ben Kinney, Co-Founder of PLACE. “The enthusiasm she brings to the table and her drive to create new and exciting tools for her agents as they better serve their clients is in perfect alignment with the goals of PLACE. It is going to be so fun to watch her business grow.”
“Deb is an amazing human being and the way that she achieves her mission as a servant leader has touched so many lives,” said Chris Suarez, Co-Founder of PLACE. “We welcome her to PLACE and know that her team is going to be able to expand its mission to help more people achieve the dream of homeownership.”
