Josh Jaster partners with PLACE for “horsepower to expand”
“PLACE will give us the horsepower to expand our mission and create a team that nobody has to be on, but everybody wants to be on.”
FARGO, N.D., August 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 Josh Jaster and The Jaster Group are now powered by PLACE. PLACE improves profitability and production to make running a real estate business easier.
Josh Jaster is the owner and team leader of The Jaster Group, serving the Fargo-Moorhead area, Lakes Country of Minnesota, and communities along the North Dakota-Minnesota border. Since 2016, Jaster has helped more than 500 people buy and sell real estate, and in 2022, he closed $25 million in sales volume through 104 transactions.
Jaster’s interest in real estate sparked after reading “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter. “This book changed my mindset around success, money, and risk,” he explained. Jaster, who previously worked as a loan officer at a bank, realized that working in sales could accomplish the financial success he envisioned for himself and his family. Jaster already owned a home and a rental property, and after speaking to his own Realtor,® he joined their team as a buyer’s agent.
After a couple of years, Jaster became a solo agent. “I was reading 52 books a year, writing affirmations, doing all the things you are supposed to, and achieved a good GCI,” Jaster explained. “I was making more money than I ever had but slowly stopped doing all the things that helped me achieve success.” When the pandemic hit, the entire economic landscape changed. Jaster, a student of history, was excited about the potential for something “cool” to happen through changing times.
The team’s mission led Jaster to PLACE. “I want to continue to grow as a real estate professional, leader, investor, and wealth builder so that those on my team continue to grow and see value in being part of the team,” he said. “For agents, the Opportunity Model is phenomenal. I know that with PLACE, agents will have access to the best technology, training, and opportunities to continue growing as much as they choose.”
Jaster is excited about the opportunities for agents to earn health insurance and leverage through his PLACE partnership. “Why would we spend 10 years trying to do this on our own, when we can plug in, dial in, and get after it with PLACE,” said Jaster. “PLACE will give us the horsepower to expand our mission and create a team that nobody has to be on, but everybody wants to be on. Now, our agents and staff have the best tools to grow and succeed, empowering us to provide the best possible service to our values clients. That is how we spread joy and empower others.”
“I know that with PLACE, agents will have access to the best technology, training, and opportunities to continue growing as much as they choose.”
“I admire Josh’s genuine consideration for his team members’ well-being in all areas of their lives,” said Chris Suarez, co-founder of PLACE. “By joining forces with PLACE, Josh will gain invaluable resources and the time to leverage his strengths to drive his business past his milestones.”
