    Kicking the Can: NYC Rentals Today with Louis Adler and Robert Rahmanian

    Today, Noah and John sit down with the co-CEOs of REAL New York, Louis Adler and Robert Rahmanian, to talk rentals. Louis and Robert see quite a bit from their positions, and in a wide-ranging talk, they discuss what's happening in the rental markets today, where it could go from here if people are coming back from FL/TX, interest rates, cap rates, strategies for brokers, renters, and landlords, and why it's a kick-the-can market. Good stuff, as always.
