The Velocity Group partners with PLACE for leverage, agent opportunities
“We will grow, have more time, and lean on PLACE expertise to help others achieve their goals.”
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., December 2022 — PLACE, the industry’s only all-inclusive platform delivering intuitive technology and business services to top real estate professionals, announced today that The Velocity Group is now powered by PLACE. PLACE improves profitability and production for the top 20 percent of real estate teams.
Greg Kilroy founded The Velocity Real Estate Group in 2006 and currently manages the business with his wife and leadership partner, Ellen Fankhanel-Kilroy. Their team upholds the dream of homeownership for everyone, providing every client with superior service regardless of price point. Together, Greg and Ellen have closed more than $230 million in volume throughout their careers. Since 2003, Greg has ranked in the top 5% in closed volume in the Western Region. Ellen has proudly served as Luxury Director on the Agent Leadership Council and as a mentor for new agents in the luxury market.
Before earning his real estate license in 2003, Greg was a manufacturer representative in the bicycle industry. When he entered the real estate industry, he marketed himself uniquely as the bike-riding Realtor®. “My experience in the bicycle industry provided transferable skills that helped me adapt quickly in the real estate industry,” he explained. “Back then, I saw my boss a few times a year, traveled far and often, held myself accountable, and independently created my systems and pathways to success.”
The couple’s differing areas of expertise complement each other in a perfect combination that invigorates their business. “Our mixed skills are a superpower,” explained Greg. “Our personalities differ, but together we provide absolute client service.”
The duo is thrilled to unite and grow their team with PLACE resources. “Ellen and I look forward to keeping our valuable brokerage relationship while building a bigger team with PLACE,” Greg said. “We will grow, have more time, and lean on PLACE expertise to help others achieve their goals. We want to see our people increase their success, productivity, and positive impact on each other and clients.”
“PLACE is an answered prayer. The resources, ongoing training, systems, marketing, and accountability will improve our organization skills and focus.”
“These two are go-getters and have a track record of success, willingness to learn, and desire to help others,” said Ben Kinney, co-founder of PLACE. “PLACE tools will support their goals and team as they serve more communities.”
“Greg and Ellen have kind, energetic personalities, and their desire to positively impact others aligns well with PLACE values,” said Chris Suarez, co-founder of PLACE. “I’m excited about our partnership.”
