If you aren't already listening to podcasts, you're missing out on a huge platform of information. The scene is booming with content for every industry, and real estate is no exception. Podcasts are great to listen to on your daily commute or at your desk to make mundane tasks go by a little faster. Listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, SoundCloud or any other platform that streams podcasts to your phone or desktop.
Read on for a list of Visio's Top 5 podcasts that go in depth on relevant topics for brokers.
1. Mortgage Guide
This podcast is perfect for busy brokers with only a few minutes to spare- episodes are 10 minutes or less, giving you quick and simple lessons. These are also great to share with clients who are looking for a little extra education.
2. I Love Mortgage Brokering
With most episodes being under 20 minutes, this podcast is ideal for a morning commute. Mortgage brokers from all over the US and Canada are featured in insightful interviews, sharing helpful tips on boosting productivity for brokers or anyone who owns their own business.
3. Best Ever Show: Real Estate Investing Advice
This podcast, hosted by Joe Fairless, covers a wide range of topics, including commercial and residential real estate, investing, dealing with multi-family properties, and property management. Best Ever is especially targeted towards brokers and investors.
4. Keeping it Real
Toted as "the largest podcast in the US, made for brokers by brokers," enjoy longer episodes (30 minutes-1 hour) with entertaining guest interviews. Most guests are top producing brokers in the residential mortgage scene who share their insight and experiences on everything from negotiating rates with lenders to growing your social media presence.
5. Clear to Close
This is a new podcast with only two episodes, but we think it's a great one to follow. With in-depth interviews and poignant discussions on issues impacting the industry, hosts Alan and Brian explore a variety of topics, including refinancing, entrepreneurship, media, technology, and mortgage marketing.
