Very informative.

I really enjoy the podcast. The content is very good. The only thing I wish would improve is the audio.

Meh

The March 27 2021 episode is just nonsense. It’s one big scare tactic trying to convince people how important real estate agents are. The current real estate model is dying. Good riddance to paying outrageous fees to these “indispensable” agents.

Great info Debbie

Love the information and looking forward to hearing more.
