This week on the Over Ask Podcast, Anna Oliver joins Matt Lionetti and The Broke Agent to discuss how (and why) she moved to Toronto after building a successful real estate business in Halifax—and what led to her having to start all over during a recession. 

From there, she talks about what she did in Toronto to learn the market and build her client base, experiences she had with other real estate teams before she joined The Agency, how she and Matt Lionetti met, and how they decided to team up and collaborate on listings. 

Stay tuned to the end to hear about an unlisted video that went viral, what she learned from the fallout, and how she and Matt are carving a new space in the luxury real estate market.
