AFIRE Podcast #81: Continuing the Conversation

(Featuring Michael Bull, CCIM, President, Bull Realty; Host, America’s Commercial Real Estate Show)

The commercial real estate business is based on conversation. So when the world has gone online and casual conversations have become scarce—how do we keep the conversation going?

During the last year and a half, the COVID-19 pandemic, market evolutions, and rapid changes in technology have converged to turn networking on its head. In this brave new world, investors need a new way to share what they’ve learnedand learn from others in return (virtually, of course). So, where do we begin? How do we have more of the conversations we used to take for granted, and how do we make them count?

On this episode of the AFIRE Podcast with Gunnar Branson, Michael Bull, CEO and founder of Bull Realty and host of America’s Commercial Real Estate Show, explains how to listen carefully and ask the right questions—and then shifts to a concrete example for real estate activity in Atlanta; a metro of importance to many investors, and the conversations that make the city work.
