It’s about time we had some guests back on the podcast – and boy did we get a couple of great ones!
Our friends Sandra Kirkland and James Milonas (better known as ‘James In The City’) joined us this week to talk about what is going on in real estate in this unique environment.
What has changed and what is the same as it ever was? Everything from market trends to realtor behaviour, to marketing ideas in a post-COVID world – we unpacked it all (spoiler alert, not everyone is on the same page…and that’s a good thing).
Follow our guests, because they’re awesome:

So March Break ended yesterday, and Summer Break begins today…whether you’ve got kids or not, you are three months deep into trying to manufacture a new routine and sanity for yourself and your business.
We banked on a few weeks, got a few months, and now we’ve got a couple more. How are we going to navigate more time with all the kids at home and the world only half open for business? Let’s talk about it, it’s time to level up the summer!
It has been a month, and many parents are starting to reach a breaking point with their kids. Perhaps some reached that point a while ago.
Katie and Daniel talk about how they have been spending their ‘home time’ with their four kids, and discuss some of the ways they have used this crisis to actually bring some benefit. They discuss their routine, their communication strategies, and how to actually get some alone time when self-isolation actually starts to feel crowded.
