Happy 2022! May it be infinitely better than 2021 was!
I thought to kick this year off with a podcast making predictions… or more accurately, discussing and debating predictions already made. My guest is Brian E. Adams of Hooquest, who also made his 2022 Predictions. We talk about his predictions, which are intended to be accurate, and my predictions which are guaranteed wrong. But my predictions have a better soundtrack, so there is that.
Notorious POD, Ep. 28: 2022 Predictions with Brian Adams, Hooquest
I am a real estate agent in the Killeen, TX market, which is a mid-size market of about 250,000 an hour north of Austin with relatively flat home prices, generally behaves as a buyer’s market, and is dominated by the VA loan. I have been licensed since 2013. A West Point graduate, I bought a home every time I PCSed or deployed while in the Army, and enjoyed my experience with real estate. I left the Army and went full-time real estate!
I’m a bit unusual for a Realtor in that I am a high C on the DISC scale – very analytical! Maybe too much so. But hopefully my analytical personality can help other agents find the solutions they are looking for in their own business, as well as avoid the solutions that will be both time and money wasters.
In April of 2019, I began a new role in real estate with Zillow Offers as an Acquisitions Analyst in the Dallas market. I am one of a team who helps price homes. It’s been incredibly rewarding to be on the ground floor of the new iBuyer movement and all the excitement going on there! Note, this site has no affiliation with Zillow and they do not endorse anything I share here.
I have a British wife whose only familiarity with Texas prior to meeting me was via the film “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, four young daughters who love dressing up and Britney Spears, and a son. The Cowboys are America’s Team, I’m a history buff, and I love a good-spirited political debate, which is best had with someone who disagrees with me! (but no politics at work!)
