Episode 15: Nikki Greenberg – Technology and the Future of Real Estate
From autonomous vehicles to on-demand everything, technology has woven itself into the fabric of our lives. But what about its impact on the real estate industry? And, more importantly, what’s next?
In Episode 15 of REAL TIME, futurist and real estate thought leader Nikki Greenberg explains the breakthroughs and benefits of a rapidly evolving trend: property tech. Learn what prop-tech is, its potential to modernize residential and commercial development, and how it’s redefining the ways in which we interact with our homes, office spaces, and more.
Episode 14: Sandra Rinomato – A Practical (and Personal) Guide to First-Time Home Buying
Investing in real estate for the first time can be equal parts exciting and intimidating. And for some, it can feel like a distant dream.
In episode 14 of REAL TIME, author, mentor, former TV host and Broker/Owner Sandra Rinomato tells us how to turn that dream into a reality.
What fears or misconceptions are holding first-time buyers back? What should REALTORS® do differently with new buyers? Sandra shares her advice to help break down the process and get to the root of the first-time buyer’s needs, providing actionable tips along the way.
Episode 13: Tiffany Pratt – Wellness by Design: Creating a Home that Brings Joy
What is the relationship between our homes and our mental and physical well-being? Are there changes we can make to infuse a greater sense of joy into our living spaces? How can we reimagine the things we already have to elevate our homes aesthetically and functionally?
In Episode 13 of REAL TIME, designer and TV host Tiffany Pratt talks about connecting more deeply with our homes to improve well-being and live a beautiful life, no matter what ‘beautiful’ means to you. Because in her words – be it through colour, texture or personal items that invigorate our spirit – “our homes should make us feel something.”
Episode 12: Dr. Hadiya Roderique – Working While Black: A Conversation About Race in the Workplace
“You have to be part of changing the culture. If you want racist speech or actions to be unacceptable, you have to be one of the people saying it’s unacceptable.”
In Episode 12 of REAL TIME, we discuss racial biases and opportunity gaps facing BIPOC professionals in Canada. Joined by Dr. Hadiya Roderique – speaker, researcher and author of the viral article “Black on Bay Street'' – we look at ways to address racism in the workplace and other interpersonal settings. How do we recognize it? What does it mean to be an ally? How do we improve to be more diverse and inclusive?
Join us for a critical conversation with input from REALTORS® who’ve experienced racism or bias firsthand – and their advice on how we can do better.
Episode 11: Steven Sabados – What Do We Want From Our Homes in 2021?
Last year, the COVID-19 pandemic quickly underscored the importance of “home” as refuge. As a result, Canadians started making their homes a larger priority, as demonstrated via record home sales, shifts in the types of homes purchased and a boom in home renovations.
Listen in as we discuss this change with Canadian designer, artist and TV host, Steven Sabados, and further explore ways we can make the most of our homes in 2021.
Episode 10: Hindsight is 2020
2020 has been an unprecedented year in almost every regard.
In this episode of REAL TIME, we discuss the impact COVID-19 had on Canadians, how housing markets responded, how REALTORS® have adapted and what it all means moving forward. Join us as we dive deeper into these topics with insights from industry experts David Coletto (CEO, Abacus Data) and our own Patrick Pichette (VP, REALTOR.ca) and Shaun Cathcart (Senior Economist).
