This week on The Real Word, Byron Lazine and Nicole White start the conversation with a BAM article on what it might take to become a homeowner—at least according to many Gen Z and millennial renters. A winning lottery ticket made the list. 

Next up was an Inman article on the phenomenon of boomerang agents returning to their old brokerages, followed by a YouTube Short with Monica Church—a clip from this week’s Over Ask Podcast—telling agents to stop making videos about serious real estate topics. 

Byron and Nicole weigh in on Monica’s advice, the value of going viral, and what kind of content is effective for most agents on YouTube.
