Faiyaz Dossaji and Mike Morrell partner with PLACE to offer immense agent opportunity
CHARLOTTE, N.C., February 2023 — PLACE, the industry’s only all-in-one business services and technology platform for top teams at any brokerage, announced today that Faiyaz Dossaji, Mike Morrell, and Dream Team United, formerly known as Carolinas Dream Team, are now powered by PLACE. PLACE improves profitability and production to make running a real estate business easier.
Faiyaz and Mike, co-founders and team leaders at Dream Team United, have built an elite real estate business serving North and South Carolina. With offices in the Charlotte Metro, Greenville/Spartanburg, and Greensboro/Winston Salem areas, this team has helped more than 1,600 families achieve the dream of homeownership. In 2022, they sold $136 million in sales volume through 325 transactions.
“PLACE provides a plan to take what we’ve built over the last five years and scale that up over the next five to ten years.”
Mike’s mother was a real estate agent and his father was in construction, so after serving in the USMC, a career in real estate seemed like a natural fit. Mike started his career in new home sales and after a nine year career, entered a general brokerage in 2014.
Faiyaz and Mike first met at a career night in 2015 and found that they had a common background in military intelligence as well as a family history of entrepreneurship and a desire to build something bigger. They continued to grow their own businesses in tandem, and in 2018, they co-founded Carolinas Dream Team. “We have built a team of people we truly like,” explained Mike. “My favorite people in the world are on our team. We root for and support each other, and we are passionate about taking care of people.
The Dream Team is also passionate about serving their community and providing an environment where their team members can build big businesses under the Dream Team umbrella. “One of our values is creating more efficiencies and opportunities so our talented team members can build bigger lives and bigger businesses without ever wanting to leave,” said Faiyaz.
“Agents looking for new opportunities can jump on board and know they’re aligning themselves with a company that has amazing training capabilities as well as fantastic systems and processes.”
This desire for growth and expansion is what ultimately led Faiyaz and Mike to partner with PLACE. They were involved in masterminds with top agents around the country, and they learned about the success that other PLACE partners were having, but it was through conversations with Ben Kinney that they ultimately determined it was the right move for their business.
“We saw value in PLACE, and at one point, considered trying to build something similar ourselves,” said Mike. “Once we realized what it would take to replicate it, we found that partnering with PLACE would give our team members access to these business opportunities much more quickly and effectively.”
“Partnering with PLACE is ultimately about scaling, growing, and receiving organizational structure,” said Faiyaz. “PLACE provides a plan to take what we’ve built over the last five years and scale that up over the next five to ten years.”
Part of the team’s value proposition is the diversity of its members. “We have people from all walks of life and different parts of the world,” said Faiyaz. “We collectively speak 14 different languages which allows us to effectively serve a very diverse clientele.”
The team also includes several military veterans, including Mike, and actively supports the local veteran community. “Our mission statement is Dream Big, Inspire Growth, and Enrich Lives,” said Mike. “We have clung to these ideals through the changing real estate market and economic shift. Agents looking for new opportunities can jump on board and know they’re aligning themselves with a company that has amazing training capabilities as well as fantastic systems and processes.”
“Faiyaz and Mike recognize the benefit of working together for expansion,” said Ben Kinney, co-founder of PLACE. “They have different strengths, care about their team, and want to have fun. Partnering with PLACE is going to help them achieve all the goals they set for themselves and their team.”
“Faiyaz and Mike have built a team that values diversity as well as community,” said Chris Suarez, co-founder of PLACE. “PLACE is going to help them scale their business quickly as they welcome and train new team members.”
