11/28/10: Ask The Guys – Thankful For Your Questions

After we stuffed ourselves with heaping helpings of holiday food, we came into the studio to feast on your fabulous questions – all of which we’re most thankful for!

Sitting at the radio banquet table:

  • Your holiday host and head turkey carver, Robert Helms
  • Co-host and big butterball turkey, Russell Gray

Week after week we gather up questions from our listening audience.  When our email bag gets stuffed like a holiday turkey, we reach in and grab a bunch to chew on.  Then we dedicate a show to regurgitating our responses.

In this eight course buffet of brilliance, we take on several rich and satisfying queries.  Some are tough, while others are as easy as pie.  When it was all said and done, we had a very full episode!

  • How do I know if a four unit residential property is a good deal?
  • Is a beach condo in San Diego a good investment?
  • What is the best way to pick a real estate company to list my property with?
  • How do I find a good mortgage company?
  • Are the non-profit organizations set up to help borrowers with loan mods any good?  What about the “HOPE hotline” and REST report for help with loan mods?  Do I really need an attorney?
  • What investment strategies work for foreign buyers of US properties?
  • How long will interest rates stay low?

9/26/10: Tracking International Trends – CEO Insights from the Nation’s Largest Local Association

Every day, jobs, money, people and business are going global. Some come to the U.S. and some leave.  Some go both ways.  Maybe you’ve fantasized about cross-border transactions, in which case you may need to seek professional help.

Because we’re us, we get to meet all kinds of bright, experienced and interesting people. It counter balances us.   The latest smart person we’ve met (wait until you see how many letters come after her name!) is our guest for this episode.

Revealing their deepest thoughts on this subtle topic:

  • Your head therapist, host Robert Helms
  • Your head case, co-host Russell Gray
  • Special call-in expert, CEO of MIAMI, Teresa Kinney CAE, CIPS, GRI, RCE, TRC

Teresa Kinney, CEO MIAMI

To avoid confusion, even though she wears the title of CEO of MIAMI, Teresa isn’t an official from the city of Miami.  She’s CEO of MIAMI (notice the ALL CAPS) which is comprised of several organizations: the Residential Association, the Realtors® Commercial Alliance, the Broward County Board of Governors, and the International Council.  You can learn more at www.miamire.com.

What impresses us most is that MIAMI is a top gateway for international real estate both coming into and going out of the United States.  So if you’re interested in international real estate, MIAMI and Miami are great places to get connected.  In fact, there’s a big international real estate event coming up October 30-31 featuring National Association of Realtors® Chief Economist Lawrence Yun, and The Real Estate Guys™!

Now some people think tracking markets and trends is a drag, but we like it! Astute investors watch for economic and demographic trends in order to effectively pick markets and properties poised to perform best over the next 10-30 years.

Located in the #1 hub for global real estate, CEO Teresa Kinney oversees the largest local association of Realtors® in the nation.  With access to all the statistics, plus gobs of anecdotal data from over 23,000 agents, Teresa has more insight into international real estate activity than just about anyone else! Of course, we couldn’t wait to ask her a zillion questions.  Tune in and find out what she has to say!
