Everything falls into PLACE for James Goodman and Katie Taylor
Phoenix, AZ, February 2022 — PLACE, the real estate industry’s only all-inclusive platform that combines technology, business services, and growth and profitability tools for top producers, announced today that The Goodman Taylor Team of the Greater Phoenix area is now powered by PLACE.
James Goodman and Katie Taylor have always placed a value on partnership. They formed their team after a colleague encouraged them to do so just so she could be on it and around them. That got the ball rolling and by 2019, The Goodman Taylor Team was up and running, committed to providing a stellar client experience, and having a lot of fun while doing it.
The partners have great and mutual respect for each other and their skills (and senses of humor) complement each other, creating a well-rounded real estate team with a successful operation. “We bring our own brand of fun and combine that with hard work to make our community succeed,” said Taylor. Goodman added, “Real estate can be lonely. It’s nice to have a partner that I can fully trust. No matter what happens, I know that we can figure it out together.”
“We bring our own brand of fun and combine that with hard work to make our community succeed.”
Combining Goodman’s out-of-the-box ideas with Taylor’s vision and organizational skills has helped expand their brand awareness, client base, and community involvement “He is the big thinker, I am the detail person,” explained Taylor. “We approach business differently but we share the same values,” Goodman recalled a car show he began sponsoring prior to their partnership. Today, that same event raises tens of thousands of dollars for local charity. “Katie has added the organization, systems, and world-class execution,” he explained. “It has grown ten-fold and is easier to produce than when I did it all by myself.”
“PLACE is like pressing the easy button.”
Goodman and Taylor have witnessed the fruits of a solid partnership first-hand. With big goals on the horizon, partnering with PLACE was a natural step forward. “PLACE is like pressing the easy button,” said Goodman. “We know where we want to go, and PLACE has already figured it all out.” Growth is a huge motivating factor for Goodman and Taylor to partner with PLACE. “We look forward to fast-tracking the systems and leveraging those efforts so that we can achieve goals faster,” added Goodman. “We have already begun the process of onboarding new team members.”
“James and Katie have seen the power and possibility of partnership first hand,” said PLACE Co-Founder Chris Suarez. “They, like us, understand that you don’t have to go it alone – through partnership, we can achieve so much more. We welcome them to PLACE and are excited to grow alongside each other.”
“Katie and James are hungry, humble, and hardworking,” said Ben Kinney, Co-Founder of PLACE. “And, of course, their entire team has an incredible sense of humor. The Goodman Taylor Team are wonderful people that have fun while getting it done and we are honored that they have chosen to partner with PLACE.”
“PLACE is going to help our already great team be even better,” concluded Taylor. “We love our work and the people and community we serve and look forward to having others with similar values in our corner.”
