AlexrDunbar ,

Love the podcast!

Awesome podcast for Realtors and home buyers/sellers alike. I am a Realtor myself and have gained a ton of knowledge from James & Denny. They are clear and concise yet entertaining with their approach and give actionable advice without any fluff. I appreciate their value based approach with the podcast as many Realtors with the same level of experience and knowledge would not be as open and inclined to sharing, especially with the competition. But these guys are committed to giving back and raising the standard of industry as a whole. Definitely recommend this podcast to anyone interested in real estate, especially in the greater Vancouver area.

Passionate realtors sharing the ins and outs!

Real estate is something both James and I are very passionate about. Join us on our podcasting journey sharing things we have learned over the years in our real estate careers. This is NOT a stats show, but more of us sharing personal experiences... what’s worked, what hasn’t, how our business has evolved over the years.
We’d love to hear your feedback and definitely dm us if there’s something specific you’d like us to cover.
