Podcasts That CRE Professionals Should Follow

Last year apto published 6 commercial real estate podcasts you should be following. While these are still great ones to give a listen, they’ve rounded up four more that we think commercial real estate professionals would benefit from.

From interviews with commercial real estate brokers and tech executives on the state of the industry to best practices for CRE investing, to useful and unique sales tactics, we hope there’s something on this list for everyone.

 

  1. Commercial Real Estate with a Little Attitude

This podcast is hosted by Duke Long, owner, and broker of The Duke Long Agency. Long has delivered numerous presentations and participated in/hosted panel discussions about commercial real estate technology, communication, marketing, branding, data, content creation, and digital media. In Commercial Real Estate with a Little Attitude, he sits down with prominent brokers and various CRE tech executives to discuss their perspectives on the state of the industry. But beware! This podcast is not for the faint of heart or something you’d want your children overhearing. It’s got attitude and F-bombs galore but is sure to get you thinking and talking.

 

  1. The Apartment Building Investing Podcast

Entrepreneur and author Michael Blank shares what works and what doesn’t in the world of commercial real estate investing. And with a new episode released every week, there are plenty of secrets to be learned.  Blank has been investing in residential and multifamily real estate since 2005 and began syndicating deals in 2010. His main mission? To show people how they can become financially free in the next three to five years (or sooner) by doing their first apartment building deal.

 

  1. We Study Billionaires

This podcast comes from the Investor’s Podcast Network. While not specific to commercial real estate, it’s no secret that CRE brokers are financially motivated and, who doesn’t dream of becoming a billionaire? Hosts Preston Pysh and Stig Brodersen study self-made billionaires like Warren Buffet and Ray Dalio and share ways you can adopt their processes and tactics, especially when it comes to investing and the stock market. And if you aren’t into investing now (or ever), the content is at least inspirational and motivating.

 

  1. The Salesman Podcast

Hosted by Will Barron, The Salesman Podcast is the world’s most downloaded B2B sales and selling podcast. While commercial real estate is all about relationships, every broker must be at his/her core a good salesman/saleswoman. Whether you’re prospecting for new business, have been struggling to close the same deal for two years, or are trying to think of something witty and eye-catching to say in an email to an old client, this podcast has something for you.  Barron interviews the world’s leading influence, body language, psychology, and sales experts to give you the information you need to close more deals, make more money, and really thrive in sales.

The Crucial Piece Of Advice TED Gives To Nervous Speakers

ng to assume that an entire crowd is behind you, TED curator Chris Anderson advises checking around for a few friendly faces. “Early on in the talk, look out for faces that seem sympathetic,” he writes in TED Talks. “If you can find three or four in different parts of the audience, give the talk to them, moving your gaze from one to the next in turn. Everyone in the audience will see you connecting and the encouragement you get from those faces will bring you calm and confidence.”

And if you trip over a few lines, so what? Anderson suggests it might even work to your benefit.

“Audiences embrace speakers who are nervous, especially if the speaker can find a way to acknowledge it. If you flub or stutter a little in your opening remarks, it’s fine to say, ‘Oops, sorry, a little nervous here,” he advises, extolling the power of vulnerability. “Your listeners will be rooting for you even more.”

Creating Collaborative Workspaces To Attract Top Talent

The millennial workforce is often tagged with the misconception of being easily distracted and unmotivated. Thus, a challenge which most businesses face in unlocking their true potential. They yearn autonomy, and if one applies the paradigm to the way they like to work, it becomes quite obvious why they love the idea of coworking spaces.

Inherently collaborative and flexible by nature, coworking has observed many new trends and unique practices over the years. They are the new hub for India’s ever-dynamic millennials who seek an adequate/ ideal spectrum of work and play amalgamation. Organizations today are striving to make their workplace the ideal environment for employees to flourish, and coworking spaces have proved to be an ideal propeller in workspace productivity and collaboration. Led by the emerging Gen Z population, the workforce of India has gradually evolved and so have workspaces where desks are no longer limited to its primary utility and every employee desires a holistically driven workplace. With a relatively conducive working environment in place, modern offices in the form of coworking spaces are more responsive to workers’ needs and are not confined to physical locations amidst emerging mobility solutions provided by leading players in the segment.

Design

Collaborative workspaces are tastefully designed to cater to the needs of employees that range from millennials to Gen Z. They have a strong aversion to being confined to a desk or cubicle, therefore more open-planned layouts with flexible activity-based settings, break-out zones, meeting pods & terrace cafeterias fostering conversations over coffee & food are hard to miss at coworking spaces. Shared workspaces fitted with activity-based settings allow for greater collaboration and alternate meeting/working points other than one’s work desk. In fact, collaboration areas & relaxed meeting lounges allow for stimulated informal interactions that cater to the social needs of the employees. Biophilic designs, indoor plants & vertical gardens help bring a bit of nature indoors allowing the millennial mind to not feel trapped within the confines of office space.

Collaboration

In terms of perception and functionality, coworking is largely synonymous to collaboration. People share opinions and formulate opinions basis their continuous interactions with other colleagues – encouraging a highly open environment. The meaning may also come from working in a culture where it is the norm to help each other out, and there are many opportunities to do so; the variety of workers in the space means that co-workers have unique skill sets that they can provide to other community members. People from different aspects of life, come together to work under the same roof. People with varied thoughts have varied ideas. Sometimes people in a coworking environment collaborate for out of the box thinking and results. These thoughts are then transformed into an end product which is only possible by great minds thinking differently. The growing trend of start-ups benefit majorly from such collaborations, which otherwise is not possible.

Where Work Meets Life

According to a Harvard Business School survey, a whopping 94% of working professionals reported working more than 50 hours per week and nearly half said they worked more than 65 hours per week. With the complexity of work increasing, the work hours are no more rigid. Hence it is vital to have an environment that prevents burnouts. Socializing, various activities across the floor, music and quirky ambience provide an environment that is otherwise missed out on when buried in work. A perfect blend of work-life balance is achieved whilst increasing the productivity of employees. Furthermore, People who use coworking spaces see their work as meaningful. According to Harvard Business Review, the combination of a well-designed work environment and a well-curated work experience are part of the reason why people who co-work demonstrate higher levels of thriving than their office-based counterparts.

Technology

Millennials today are looking for high quality, high-speed connectivity, reliable and covetable products at work and are already shaping office spaces today. Laptops and smartphones in the near future will transform into voice-activated assistant, wearable technology, including wearable glasses, embedded chips, and wrist devices connected with the Internet of Things (IoT), ensuring the seamless connection of work surfaces and individuals. Video technology and connectivity speed will ensure real presence without travel. Artificial intelligence will in fact even corroborate furniture shape, size, and use as per user accumulated data.

Bringing the External Stimulant

The new generation is passionate about social causes that benefit the society at large and want to be associated with organizations that are not only customer-oriented but also have a social mission. To the extent that millennials can shift their brand loyalty if they feel a brand has a genuine commitment towards social causes. Coworking spaces are cognizant of the fact that being attached to a social cause aids the greater sense of connecting to a workplace. Realizing that millennials and Gen Z form a large part of the coworking community, organizations are now not only focusing on charity but are also utilizing technology to track the impact caused and communicate this to them effectively.

Shared workspaces are enjoying unprecedented success in the past few years and are slated to enjoy uninterrupted growth with trends such as design, collaboration, technology, charity, work-life balance at its core so as to the ideal choice for the dynamic new-age workforce.
