In the current issue of The Real Deal magazine, the article Real estate’s most verbose talking heads: A look at the busy schedules of NYC’s go-to market pundits…
…goes haywire with Adobe Illustrator and selects four go to media resources:
Barbara Corcoran, the founder of the Corcoran Group and now a regular on the “Today Show”; Jonathan Miller, the ubiquitous president of appraisal firm Miller Samuel; Dan Fasulo, managing director at Real Capital Analytics; and Bob Knakal, chairman of Massey Knakal Realty are just a few among a growing bunch of go-to contacts.
I think the bobblehead designation is a compliment? Verbosity? I always used that word in the “long-winded” connotation. Well, my phone simply rings – plus – I’ve been known to hang out on car dashboards on the weekends.
Aside: Bob Knakal is a long time colleague who has generously agreed to sit down with me on my podcast, The Housing Helix, in a few weeks.
In this podcast, I have a conversation with my good friend Joseph Ferrara, an attorney with over 25 years experience in real estate, intellectual property and entertainment law. He is consultant to the real estate industry on marketing, social media and branding. Joe is an endless source of new ideas and likes to shake the tree. He runs the Sellsius Real Estate Marketing Blog, which focuses on real estate marketing, social media, new technology, trends, tips and how-tos. He runs The Clozing, a real estate news aggregator and is starting up New York Real Estate Advocates, a real estate brokerage concept for attorneys.
It is always great to speak with Joe.
Dustin is one of the first people I “met” outside of New York as a result of my own blogging efforts that I began in 2005. He has a wealth of knowledge and insights on social media strategies that he applies to a medium that continues to change and evolve.
I sat down with Rob Hahn, managing principal of 7DS Associates, the strategy, marketing, and technology consulting firm. I first knew Rob as many people do, as Notorious Rob, the blogger who writes about marketing, technology, and real estate.
Using his extensive background in law, social media, brokerage, data, technology (and gaming), he’s got an interesting take on everything, including the real estate brokerage model. Smart, inventive and funny work notoriously well together helping firms gain insight to see their way out of the economic paper bag of the next several years.
