Byron Lazine is the co-founding chief-of-operations at BAM (Broke Agent Media) and a co-host of The Real Word, The Walk Thru, and host of The Byron Lazine Podcast. Lazine is a moderator and founder of the 5am Call, a daily live call and podcast that helps thousands of real estate professionals get into action. In addition to podcasting, Lazine has hosted the weekly FM radio show Real Estate Radio for almost a decade, reaching audiences in NY, CT, and RI through syndication on Fox News. He has been a regular contributor for Inman News and given talks at major real estate conferences including Inman Connect New York and Las Vegas, Tom Ferry Summit, Sales Edge, Sotheby’s GNE, and Raveis Events, among others. Lazine’s vast real estate experience is in part due to his efforts in co-founding and building the #1 total transaction team in the state of Connecticut, which he still owns to this day.
At 19 years old, Byron jumped into the world of real estate investing, buying three houses during the 2004-2006 mortgage crisis. Over the next few years, he made every mistake in the book, and went bankrupt by his mid-20s. By the time he entered the industry as an agent he had nothing – no money and certainly no credibility.
Without a college degree, and zero experience as an entrepreneur and salesperson, many people told Byron he was crazy to leave a stable job at a power plant. He used their doubt as fuel, selling over 50 homes in his first year in real estate.
Since then, Byron has worked to get better every day. He co-founded the One & Company Team in 2017, which got its start in a basement. The team now stands as one of the national leaders in the industry, with offices across the state of Connecticut, and more expansion happening every day.
Byron got into real estate for two reasons: to help people avoid the mistakes that he made, and to take control of his life. He shares his expertise and drive with people across the country, motivating others to take ownership of their own lives.

Last week, Byron and Eric (aka the broke agent) sat down with LA agent Taya Dicarlo.

Taya offered her thoughts on the most-liked, misguided hate comments on her TikTok page, why TikTok has become such a toxic space when it comes to comment sections:
