    L&H85 - Real Estate Round Table #2 - The World Has Changed

    We are back with our quarterly (just kidding) real estate round table where we get a couple guys smarter than us on to discuss all things residential, commercial, investments, and economics.

    On this episode we have none other than friend of the show and resident commercial lender Andrew Wagstaff, as well as Avison Young multifamily real estate agent, Brandon Imada.

    We discuss rental markets, how statistics can tell the truth while also lying, how the residential and commercial markets are fairing in the midst of the pandemic, and our broad projections for 2021 and on.
