Best Minds: Looking Back and Thinking Forward Retrospective
In the face of constant change, how do real estate leaders adapt to shifting market dynamics in the past, present, and future?
In this episode, we’re bringing you something a little different from our standard interview format. 2021 marks the second anniversary of our podcast, and in the two years since we began, we’ve been incredibly lucky to speak to some of the most thoughtful and inspiring leaders in the real estate industry. One topic that we’ve discussed at length is change; both in terms of the historical trends and developments that have shaped the careers of our guests as well as the forces currently at play in the sector that will impact the next generation of real estate practitioners. Given the massive amount of change that has gripped the world in the past several months due to the coronavirus, we thought we would take this opportunity to share some of these clip. Hear from Cindy Clare, Philip Jalufka, Mike Neal, Steve LeBlanc, H. Jerome Russell, Karen Hollinger, Charles R. Brindell Jr, Jonathan Roth, and Tom Bozzuto about how to adapt to changing market dynamics, the events that have shaped the current state of the real estate industry, and what the future might hold in store for 2021 and beyond. RCLCO’s Managing Director of Strategic Initiatives, Joshua A. Boren, narrates this special episode.
