    James Brune, "Honest without Fear" Founder and CEO of BoardPackager tells his story on Global Luxury Real Estate Mastermind with Michael Valdes Podcast #170
    James Brune, CEO of Board Packager had a great love of real estate from an early age when he would visit the rental properties his parents owned on weekends to fix odd things in their investments. He purchased his first home at the age of 21, but he had a successful career in oil & gas before he decided to make real estate his passion. He was a successful real estate agent in the highly competitive market of New York City and found a great business opportunity with the tedious work involved with creating a board package for co-ops and condos in New York City which was mostly a manual, laborious task where each package was several hundred pages and multiple copies were necessary. This archaic method had not been challenged in years, and the automated process with Board Packager was born. Jim is a brilliant entrepreneur, and it was a privilege to speak with him. 
    More About James Brune: 
    James Brune combines a strong analytical business background with practical reasoning to understand and navigate the critical elements of any transaction. His passion for real estate dates back to the days when he would spend time with his parents on their weekend projects refurbishing single-family rental houses. He bought his first house when he was in his early 20s and in 2012 turned his passion into a rewarding career; with nearly $13 million of transactions completed in 2012 alone, he was named Douglas Elliman’s ‘Rookie of the Year’. He is also the founder of BoardPackager, a new secure online platform for residential real estate transactions that is transforming an inherently nuanced and inefficient process into a easy, fluid way for brokers, applicants, property management and boards of buildings to process property transfers.
    Prior to that, James held positions in natural gas trading and weather risk management for a combined 13 years; most recently as interim CEO/Executive Vice President/Director of the U.S. subsidiary of Tokyo-based Weathernews, Inc. - a weather risk management consultancy. He started the company’s New York office, and eventually was responsible for the entire North American subsidiary (accepting buyout when permanent relocation was required).
    James has lived in New York City for 15 years in several different neighborhoods; Midtown-East Manhattan, DUMBO and now Clinton Hill. He is an undergraduate of Southern Methodist University plus holds an MBA from the Mays Business School at Texas A&M University with additional coursework completed at Copenhagen Business School.
    James is involved in a number of social and civic organizations in New York City and in New Orleans, LA where he also has a home. He is active in children’s causes, and is a Trustee of the New York Foundling. James additionally enjoys running, bicycling, skiing, traveling, photography, fantasy football and classic cars.

    Chuck Fazio, "Iron Sharpens Iron" Associate Broker/ International Team Leader at eXp Realty shares his incredible story on Global Luxury Real Estate Mastermind with Michael Valdes Podcast #165
    Chuck Fazio and his wife Angela literally went from nothing and almost leaving real estate to building a team of over 900 people, which has now grown to over 4300 people. Chuck's story is a movie. He was a bouncer at night clubs which is where he said he first learned his negotiating skills and then moved to Arizona to "save himself from himself.". This was perhaps one of the most candid interviews I have ever done on the podcast to date. I am thankful to Chuck for his candor and for sharing his story, which I am certain will help many.
    More About Chuck Fazio: 
    The Fazios’ story starts in 2001, and it follows an early theme experienced by many successful real estate agents and brokers: Things didn’t go well initially.
    “We were complete failures and were literally about to move in with his parents,” said Angela. Eventually, the couple started finding their footing and gained confidence, starting Revelation Real Estate in 2005. 
    These days, Revelation Real Estate is consistently recognized as a top-producing brokerage in the greater Phoenix area, which also includes areas to the east such as Chandler, Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Gilbert, Scottsdale, Queen Creek, and Maricopa.
    The Fazios are a power couple in this real estate market and have attracted numerous awards and accolades over the years. They have also authored the book, “Mastering Your Real Estate Career: Your Blueprint to Move from Struggle to Success,” which currently has a 5-star rating on Amazon.
