One fundamental realization I’ve learned during our social distancing experience has been how important the home is. Your environment is paramount to your emotional, psychological, mental and even spiritual health. So how has COVID-19 impacted real estate? Where were we at a month ago? Where are we now? Where will we go?

Butch Haze - A Tale of Two Tech Cities: San Francisco and the Future of Seattle
A question Tyler asks every guest at the end of each show is “What is your biggest fear for Seattle.” The number one answer to this question (in over 80 episodes) is that we don’t want Seattle to become San Francisco, but what does that mean? Butch Haze – one of the “Top 100 “real estate agents in the country joins the show to talk about what we can learn from San Francisco now to change Seattle’s future and how we can get into “the game” of real estate in an ever-growing costly market.
Customer ReviewsSee All
Great Seattle Podcast!
An excellent podcast about the people and issues shaping Seattle today. Tyler is a great interviewer.
Way too much repeated filler
A lot of redundancy, could probably do with some tighter editing
A True Story Telling Podcast
There aren’t too many podcast that care to tell the whole story of people’s lives they interview. It was refreshing seeing this type of structure. Tyler is great at interviewing in a way that allows the listener to feel like they know the each guest. Quality listen!
