This week on the Knowledge Brokers Podcast, Byron Lazine, Tom Toole, and Lisa Chinatti start the conversation with an Inman contributor’s response to Byron’s and Lisa’s comments on a February article she wrote: “I’m an agent. You can’t tell me what to wear on the job.” 

Byron and Lisa review and react to the new Inman piece, which calls out Byron in particular while giving Lisa props. If you need a refresher, check out the February 14th episode of The Real Word with Byron’s and Lisa’s original comments. 

Next up was the jobs report, which segued to mortgage rates and the question of whether we’re heading towards the inventory bottom as home prices tick up after seven months of decline.
