Misti Bruton partners with PLACE for business and agent growth opportunities

Announcing a new partnership: Kimberlee Meserve and The Street Property Team are powered by PLACE.

“PLACE is helping me focus my time and energy so that my vision truly culminates in implementation.”

Misti sought partnership after learning details from an insider, a friend, and team leader who recently partnered with PLACE.

SAN MARCOS, Tex., July 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 Misti Bruton and AVO Realty Group of Real Broker are now powered by PLACE. PLACE improves profitability and production to make running a real estate business easier.

Misti Bruton is a Central Texas native and the owner and operator of AVO Realty Group. While they’re based out of San Marcos and focus on San Marcos and New Braunfels, they service all of Central Texas including San Antonio, Austin, Georgetown, and all the way to Houston.

A native of Central Texas, Misti first earned her real estate license after graduating from high school in 1994. “I had a friend whose family was in real estate, and they had an amazing lifestyle,” she said. “I liked the flexibility. It seemed like the right direction for me, and I thought I could be a Realtor® and pursue a rewarding career while in college.” Misti ultimately focused her studies, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Social Psychology and pursued a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology.

She never abandoned her dream of being a Realtor® and was drawn back to real estate by flipping properties. In 2015, she was ready to renew her license and hit the ground running as a real estate agent. “I had a pretty big sphere because I grew up in the area,” Misti said. “I started with a lot of online leads and got into coaching early on. I knew if I was going to build a business, I needed structure and systems in place.”

Misti launched AVO Realty Group in 2015 with co-founder Todd Spencer and together they have led as many as 75 agents at a time. After a few life and business changes, she’s ready to recruit and expand again — one of the many reasons she’s partnering with PLACE. “When I first started my business, I envisioned building a very big organization that could span multiple states and help a lot of people find success in real estate,” she explained. “I’ve always had the big vision but never had the capacity or bandwidth to fully build it by myself.”

Misti’s colleague at Real Broker, Erik Hatch, partnered with PLACE and told her about the plug-and-play ease of the PLACE platform. “Immediately I jumped on board, trusting the experiences of those who partnered before me,” said Misti. “I’m excited for the ‘what’s next’ plan PLACE offers.”

Misti and Todd are eager to provide their team members with the growth support they’ve been craving. “We have a great team that wants to grow, and with PLACE, we believe that is possible without them outgrowing us,” she said. “I am excited for their futures.”

While her team members will have everything necessary to expand their businesses, Misti and Todd will have the time and resources to grow the team. “PLACE systems and structure give me more confidence to know that I can get out there in front of agents and offer them an opportunity that has proven valuable and is working for others.”

“I can focus on bringing in more agents, getting them started on the right foot, and help them avoid going down all the wrong paths I have taken along the way,” continued Misti. “PLACE is helping me focus my time and energy so that my vision truly culminates in implementation.”
