[VIP] The Notorious Interview: Nick Taylor, Modus

We are back with our first Notorious Interview since the holidays interrupted things. The first interview of the New Year is with an old acquaintance who is one of the nicest and smarted guys in our space: Nick Taylor, VP of Growth at Modus. This was a fun conversation, because I got to learn a […]

[VIP] The Notorious Interview: Jack Ryan, REX

Thanksgiving is behind us, along with the annual frenzy of consumerism known as Black Friday… although in 2019, I think Cyber Monday (which is today) might be an even bigger frenzy of consumerism except for the long lines, frayed nerves, and the fighting over toys that happens IRL. So first, I apologize for not posting […]

[VIP] The Notorious Interview: Jarred Kessler, EasyKnock

In today’s episode of the Notorious Interview, I talk with Jarred Kessler, Founder & CEO of EasyKnock, the most interesting company in our space I had never heard of. I corrected that oversight, obviously, and I thought you should too. EasyKnock is hard to classify: it’s kind of like a blend between a bridge loan […]

The Notorious Interview: Bill Fowler, Compass

A different Interview episode than normal, I speak with Bill Fowler, Sr. Director of Industry Relations for Compass, the tech-brokerage who has been making all kinds of waves in recent years.

[VIP] The Notorious Interview: Mark Schacknies, Remine

I am delighted to present this Notorious Interview of Mark Schacknies, CEO & Co-Founder of Remine, a real estate data and technology company. We discuss MLS data, MLS technology, and what is going on in this tiny-yet-important space of PropTech. Remine has been challenging the incumbents in this space for a while now, and making […]

[VIP] The Notorious Interview: John Campbell, Stephens

I’ve decided that most of the Interview series will be available to VIP members only, because… it takes a good amount of work to put these together. A few, with wider industry implications, will be made public but I think most of these are really of interest to serious industry observers (who I think are […]
