Real estate is a rollercoaster — your clients are counting on you to make the ride as smooth as possible.
As a Realtor, it’s your job to stay on top of fast-changing housing markets, while learning new strategies to grow your businesses and be more productive. But with so much to juggle, how do you find time for learning?
Luckily, there’s podcasts.
With the right podcast playlist, you can learn while driving to appointments, having breakfast, shopping for groceries — or any other time your ears are free.

Best review: “The guests are phenomenal and have tons of gems to offer. I started listening to BP podcasts #100 and I can’t keep away from them. I listen to 2-3 podcasts a day while I drive, shop and work around the house. Over a decade ago, I made the big mistake of paying thousands for training then noticed that if you wanted more specific training, then you’d pay for more. They fooled me once and that lead nowhere. Recently, I went to youtube to clear up a term and the first video describing the term was absolutely spot-on. “Hum, let me check out this Bigger Pockets”. I was hooked and I don’t have to pay anything to get valuable data. Thank you, BP!”.

Navigating the topics far and wide, Modern American Realtor explores the controversy, the character, and even the comedy of modern real estate. Both entertaining and educational these guys totally nailed it, though to be honest, I think most of their information comes from the constantly mentioned, obviously omniscient podcast personnel, Titan.
