Canada’s Greg de Denus partners with PLACE to support ongoing growth of top agents
“I realized I wasn’t alone in my challenges and didn’t want to be anymore. PLACE has access to a huge network that grows together.”
HAMILTON, Ontario, Canada, April 2023 — PLACE, the industry’s only all-in-one business services and technology platform for top teams at any brokerage, announced today that Greg de Denus and The de Denus Team are now powered by PLACE. PLACE improves profitability and production to make running a real estate business easier.
Greg is the founder and CEO of The de Denus Team, serving Greater Hamilton, Ontario. Greg has helped hundreds of people buy and sell real estate since launching his business in 2019. He ranked within the top 20 Hamilton Real Estate Agents on Social Media by PropertySpark in 2020. The de Denus Team closed $42 million in sales volume through 62 transactions in 2022.
For nearly 20 years, Greg was a professional musician in Toronto. He taught in Humber College’s music department, contributed to several Juno Award-nominated jazz albums, and ran a music school with his wife. When they relocated to Hamilton in 2015, his real estate agent had a “transforming” conversation with Greg about his multitalented nature and his next steps. “I was lucky to have a Realtor® who illustrated the financial platform of the real estate business. Instead of walking down an unpredictable road of challenging financials, I had the opportunity to create a stable foundation,” said Greg. “That encouraged me to join the real estate industry.”
During his first year as an agent, Greg closed 27 transactions in a new city where he had no existing connections. He credits his early success to the marketing knowledge he gained from his past musician community.
While attending a recent conference, Greg networked with PLACE Partners and felt even more certain that he was making the right decision to partner. “I realized I wasn’t alone in my challenges and didn’t want to be anymore,” Greg said. “PLACE has access to a huge network that grows together.”
He feels confident that PLACE will support his talent retention efforts. “I don’t want my business to be a revolving door,” Greg said. “PLACE provides scalability and massive value for team partner agents that I can’t provide alone. Agents that partner with the Team will now have opportunities normally only reserved for team leaders.”
