Notorious POD, Episode 7: Breaking Bad With Bob Bemis


I think every single podcast episode I do these days is my newest favorite. This one is really special, really amazing. I’m only sorry that due to travel, work, and life in general, I couldn’t post this sooner. We recorded this a couple of weeks ago, right after Bob’s first post on Notorious but these topics are evergreen.

Bob Bemis, formerly of Zillow, formerly of Arizona Regional MLS, is the special guest on this episode of Notorious P.O.D. With his decades of experience in the real estate industry, especially in the MLS side which is oft-shrouded in mystery, as well as his time at Zillow, there isn’t anyone in the real estate industry who knows more, has worked more on, and has thought more about some of the hottest issues in the real estate industry than almost everyone alive today.

We begin talking about his post, about buyer agency, about the trends and warning signs confronting the industry, but the topics range all over from MLS, syndication, MLS consolidation, Associations, brokerages, agents, the big portals, data accuracy, etc. etc. If you don’t learn something from this podcast, then you’re the smartest person in the real estate industry, because I took away so much personally.

Your comments/thoughts are always welcome, but particularly on this one, I’d love to hear from you all. There will be a second podcast as soon as we can arrange it.

Once again, thanks to Bob, and if you’re interested in his posts, you can check out his author page.

Rob Hahn

Managing Partner of 7DS Associates, and the grand poobah of this here blog. Once called "a revolutionary in a really nice suit", people often wonder what I do for a living because I have the temerity to not talk about my clients and my work for clients. Suffice to say that I do strategy work for some of the largest organizations and companies in real estate, as well as some of the smallest startups and agent teams, but usually only on projects that interest me with big implications for reforming this wonderful, crazy, lovable yet frustrating real estate industry of ours.
