Now powered by PLACE, Scott Panella forges a path to greatness
Louisville, Ky., April 2022 — PLACE, the industry’s only all-in-one real estate platform providing technology and business services to top professionals, announced today that Scott Panella and Team Panella are now powered by PLACE. PLACE exclusively partners with leading real estate teams, regardless of brokerage, in 100+ locations across the United States and Canada.
Team Panella, led by Scott Panella, is one of the premier real estate businesses in the greater Louisville, Kentucky area. Panella has served approximately 1,700 clients, helping them buy or sell their homes since he first entered the real estate industry in 2005. In 2021, he and his team closed more than $20 million in volume, assisting 72 clients with their real estate needs.
“Our team feels like we are on a rocket ship ready to go.”
Since 2006, Scott Panella has built a concierge-minded business focused on taking care of every detail and guiding clients through every step of the real estate transaction. “Real estate is a vehicle for me to feel needed,” he explained. “I love to be helpful and to be a problem solver. Real estate has perfectly combined my business skills and personality as I help clients through a very important moment in their life.”
Panella and his wife, Meg, worked out of the same real estate office for many years. They have four sons and are extremely active in their community. Together, they founded the non-profit organization Give-a-Goat, which benefits orphanages in Uganda. They are also active in their sons’ schools and numerous sporting activities, and in their spare time, they participate in triathlons. Meg is currently working on finishing up her MBA and is eager to put her new credentials to work. Meanwhile, Scott is looking to PLACE to help the good real estate business he has built over the past 10 years become great.
“This is an adventure. I am excited to explore every possibility, build my team, and give back. I believe PLACE will help us achieve all that and more.”
Team Panella – who Scott describes as small and mighty – has completed 75 to 100 transactions in each of the last five years. With a PLACE partnership, Panella forecasts that number moving to 200 to 250 while growing the team to include at least eight full-time agents. “PLACE offers the technology and ancillary resources for my team that I have been looking for,” said Panella. “The hiring assistance is immensely important and fills in the gaps I have not been able to as I seek the right talent.”
PLACE, according to Panella, will also bring more accountability to his business. “People on our team are going to receive top-level coaching, teaching, mentoring, and will have access to those who have experienced incredible success,” said Panella. “With PLACE, I will be running and growing a business with great partners.”
“We welcome Scott to PLACE with open arms,” said Chris Suarez, co-founder of PLACE. “He is a top leader in this industry and his ambition to grow his team in both size, skill, and opportunity through the PLACE roadmap is admirable. Scott brings a remarkable love for his team, clients, community, and family and we are thrilled to grow alongside him.”
“Scott is one of the most relationship-driven and people-oriented real estate professionals working today,” said Ben Kinney, co-founder of PLACE. “PLACE is a natural extension of growth through relationships and partnerships. We are delighted Scott chose to partner with PLACE and can’t wait to watch him grow and thrive in a big way.”
“I have had a great career so far and it’s not over yet,” said Panella. “This is an adventure. I am excited to explore every possibility, build my team, and give back. I believe PLACE will help us achieve all that and more.”
