This week on the Over Ask Podcast, Matt Lionetti and The Broke Agent clear the air on some of their most recent controversial content and why it’s okay (and even fun, sometimes) to disagree. 

From there, they tackle some of the over-the-top comments they’ve received on their content, including those from agents who felt “personally attacked” by their opinion on whether agents should interview restaurant owners. Briefly but effectively, they explain why their disagreement with some agents on this topic is not equivalent to a personal attack. 

It wasn’t a “Don’t do this” or “You’re not a good agent.” It was “This is our opinion; take it or leave it.” They also invited anyone who disagreed with their opinion to join them on Over Ask to debate the issue. So far, no takers. 

Next, they talk about some of the things they hate about the industry while sharing tips for consistently growing your content. 

They wrap up with a discussion on the brilliant new real estate commercial Matt created with his real estate partner Anna Oliver
