Joe Schwartzbauer stays “ahead of the curve” with PLACE partnership
“I have done as much as I can on my own. The opportunity and potential of partnering with those in a room larger than the one I am currently in makes perfect sense.”
MINNEAPOLIS–ST. PAUL., September 2023 — PLACE, the industry’s only all-in-one business services and technology platform for top real estate teams at any brokerage, announced today that Joe Schwartzbauer and Grey Duck Properties of Real Broker are now powered by PLACE. PLACE improves profitability and production to make running a real estate business easier.
Joe Schwartzbauer is the owner and operator of Grey Duck Properties, serving the Twin Cities Metro and surrounding areas since 2013. Known as a local market expert, Joe Schwartzbauer has been featured in various media outlets, including Home and Garden Television (HGTV) in 2019.
Joe entered the real estate industry as a leasing agent and quickly realized there were ample career growth opportunities. “Because I was in leasing, I met with investors, and seeing the potential for wealth building was very interesting to me,” he explained. “I quickly realized that if I could help people buy and sell real estate, then it could be a path for me to own more real estate.”
Joe takes pride in seamlessly embodying a high degree of professionalism in any context. “I am not your typical agent, and that filters through to the team,” he said.
Joe knew of PLACE; however, upon exploring and understanding the full benefits of a partnership, he felt clear about the right choice. “I have done as much as I can on my own,” he said. “The opportunity and potential of partnering with those in a room larger than the one I am currently in makes perfect sense. I personally want to become a better leader, and I believe PLACE will help me and my team become massively successful.”
He is most enthusiastic about adopting PLACE tech and training opportunities. “Real estate has changed so much in the past decade and even more in the past few years with drastic shifts in the market, changes in technology, how fast some things are moving, and how slow other things are moving. This is the time to take advantage of opportunities out there,” said Schwartzbauer. “Who you partner with makes a difference. We saw tremendous growth with REAL and locking arms with PLACE provides access to an even bigger group and the potential for more growth.”
“Joe works hard to stay at the forefront of business technology, systems, and processes to serve his team and clients further,” said Ben Kinney, co-founder of PLACE. “His desire to be part of change and help others succeed is inspiring. I’m excited to watch him achieve all of his goals.”
“Joe grew up in the Twin Cities area, is very familiar with the community, and works hard to contribute to its improvements,” said Chris Suarez, co-founder of PLACE. “His future-forward mindset led him to PLACE, and the tools and systems will help him lead in his community.”
