We have heard the benefits of creating a real estate team and over the years we have seen many women in our community convert their teams into their own brokerages.
Listen in to this candid conversation with leaders sharing how they walked through the decision process, the steps they took, what they learned, and how they are feeling about their team structures today!
Meet our amazing panel:
Dava Davin - Founder + CEO, Portside Real Estate Group
From 2020 event: Dava Davin is the founder and CEO of Portside Real Estate Group, one of the top five real estate companies in Maine, and the largest real estate company in Maine that is solely woman-owned and run.
Davin got her start in pharmaceutical sales, leaving a burgeoning career of 10 years to pursue a more consumer-focused track. She started Portside in 2012, and in just seven years, grew the business from five employees to 100—and almost $2 billion in sales.
Portside is also actively involved in the community, having raised over $150,000 through Portside Foundation 501(c)(3) by hosting events and closing donations for local nonprofits. Giving back is the underlying driver for the company, attracting agents and consumers that care and believe that a small ripple can cause a huge wave.
Davin is an avid marathoner and four-time Ironman finisher.
Nicole Solari - Founder + CEO, The Solari Group
Broker Nicole Solari has always had an entrepreneurial spirit and in 2013, she left a successful career in Silicon Valley to pursue her passion full-time. Technical savvy, insatiable drive, and devotion to exceptional client service quickly put on top as the #1 producing agent in Solano County and top 100 agents in the Bay Area. Nicole is also recognized as the top 1% of all agents, nationwide. But when it became clear that her unique brand of client-centered service required a different business model than the production-driven, big brand agencies, she launched The Solari Group. A Georgia native and graduate of the University of Georgia, Nicole brings her natural Southern charm to managing a growing roster of agents and clients alike. Clients say that Nicole is a dedicated, attentive, highly skilled negotiator that has their best interests at heart and the knowledge and connections to make their housing dreams come true. Nicole takes her continuing education seriously and holds many designations including GRI, CRS, SRS, SPRES, CLHMS and is a GUILD member of the Luxury Home Marketing Institute. Nicole runs her business with honesty, integrity, and discretion, she prides herself in being a problem solver, highly skilled negotiator, and master of contracts. Nicole also owns and operates two property management companies, and volunteers her time to animal rescues.
