Every week, I’m giving you the highlights of my experience running BAM. Here’s everything that went on this week:
HOMES.COM AD SCANDAL THAT MIGHT BE STEALING YOUR LEADS
Nicole White and I start this week’s episode of The Real Word with a BAM article on Homes.com—specifically its YouTube ads, which are using agent names to direct leads to its own website.
That led to the discovery of different ads with our names, with both of us speculating as to why and whether there’s a case against Homes.com.
Next up is a CNN article explaining why commercial real estate is in trouble, leading to a discussion on employers using webcams to track remote working employees and an experience I had recently with an hourly employee working at one of his real estate offices.
Racket #3 centers on a Valuetainment video with Barry Habib on the challenges facing American home buyers in today’s market. Stay to the end to hear whether we expect housing affordability to improve this year.
The ONLY Business Real Estate Agents Should Be In
I break down the winner’s mindset, the importance of not breaking contracts with yourself, and the one thing — the most powerful force — that separates agents who will thrive in today’s market (and any market) from those who ride the MLS wave.
The Lawsuit That Could Change Real Estate FOREVER
On Thursday’s episode of The Hot Sheet, I discussed February’s pending home sales, housing markets cooling the fastest, and the commission lawsuit being granted class-action status.
