Every week, I’m giving you the highlights of my experience running BAM. Here’s everything that went on this week:
Brad Inman’s Hot Take On The Second Largest Bank Collapse in History
This week on The Real Word, we kicked things off with an Inman article on the importance of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), which made the news when some high-risk moves led it to its recent takeover by California regulators—and the second largest bank collapse in U.S. history.
Next up was a BAM article on the Plunk app, which could shake things up for Zillow and the entire real estate industry, especially since Plunk has recently partnered up with three tech startups to revolutionize mortgage lending, housing inventory, and influencer marketing.
Racket #3 highlights a project by Elon Musk to build a town of his own in a rural county just east of Austin, Texas, which, apparently, is just one of those things billionaires do. An article on Bloomberg explores the history of some of the richest people in the world building towns of their own to perpetuate personal philosophies.
How Every Real Estate Business Can Capitalize in 2023
As a keynote speaker for the William Raveis Awards Ceremony, I shared some of the highlights from the trip, including the topics I covered—mindset and accountability—why some agents will thrive in 2023 while others flounder, and a phone call that rattled me.
U.S. Banking Crisis & Bank Run
On Monday’s episode of The Hot Sheet, I discussed the SVB collapse and how this compares to the 2008 banking crisis. Plus, President Biden’s address on banking and a weekly inventory update.
