Episodes with music are only available on Spotify.
I’ve taken a bit of time off from content to try to enjoy some lockdown time with my family, but I’m glad to be back with a new series focused entirely on first-time investing, as well as first-time homebuying. My goal here is to help first-timers really understand real estate so they can make better decisions, especially given that my perspective on the market is that asset-driven inflation could cause a k-shaped recovery, and leave a lot of people in a rough position. This series is co-hosted by a dear friend of mine, Amanda Marino, who is a e-comm & digital branding expert looking for her first investment outside of that space. Our conversation is sort of reflective of the kind of conversations I have with clients on a regular basis. Our goal is to make this series as educational, inclusive and valuable as possible, so my cohost and I may be incorporating different platforms along the way, such as Clubhouse, Instagram Live, etc.

Dani discusses how they've changed sales offices to accommodate social distancing policy, and how they're using VR and other tools to keep sales active.  Although construction productivity has declined slightly, elongating the process could actually provide a hedge against price correction risk as values recover.   Following this interview, Dani mentioned that their sales volume increased since last week, substantiating the optimism we have both seen in the market.

#10 Covid-eo Chats: Rahul Faria on restaurant construction, hitting the pause button, and the necessity of collaboration.
Rahul Faria is an absolute all-star in the construction space. When he interacted with my content with Adam Darvay, I was excited to have a conversation with Rahul as soon as I saw his linkedin page. We speak about the 2-week pause his company is taking, the challenges facing the restaurant and hospitality space, and the instant necessity that's arrived for collaboration among professionals to weather the storm of covid-19. His experience speaks for itself, so I'm going to paraphrase the "3 C's" he posts on his linkedin page below: Collaboration, Clarity & Craftsmanship. After 12 years of gaining considerable experience with large & small construction firms - I created a firm with the these 3 C's as the foundation. While managing renovations and new builds with maintaining delivery timelines and budget area are significant, there really is no greater satisfaction of a successful project that the collaborative effort with all parties - clients, consultants, subcontractors and our team. With a focus on clarity we are able to give not just our clients, but our entire team of trades, the confidence to execute through every step of the project with a level of craftsmanship that has enables a lasting experience.

We unpack the concept of the retail apocalypse and explore some of the many fates it could arrive at. This ends up being a pretty qualitative discussion in regards to the nature of artisanal retail and how malls converting to "lifestyle centres" could ultimately demand a more mindful consumer, where the online world is tailored to convenience and quantity, and the retail environment is tailored to experience and quality. I hope you enjoy this episode, and I'd love it if you could leave me some feedback in the comments or on twitter @WTFoch.
