Bruce and Aaron Norris Discuss Their Newsletter and Upcoming Event on the Real Estate Radio Show #523

Bruce and Aaron Norris held a live webinar this week discussing their latest newsletter and upcoming event 2% Interest, $40 Trillion in Debt, and Other Surprise Endings. In the show they also discuss how the Norris Group is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Bruce started the company when he was 44, and when you think about this he hasn’t owned it as long as it seems. In between then he had to grow a lot, and it was a really fun journey. When you buy properties you can do it alone. A lot of their clients actually do this. You basically work at home or in a small office. You have a company with all these facets to it, and for Bruce this was really outside of the scope for him for the first 15 years.

Bruce and Aaron discuss his latest newsletter and timing report, his upcoming event 2% Interest, $40 Trillion in Debt, and Other Surprise Endings, China's economy, debt, and healthcare system, the Euro zone deflation, oil disruption, tax law changes, and much more on this week's Norris Group real estate radio show and podcast.

On Friday, October 21, the Norris Group proudly presents its 9th annual award-winning black tie event I Survived Real Estate.

Visit www.isurvivedrealestate.com for event information and tickets.

This podcast begins with the discussion on millennials being divided into two new names. Bruce wondered what the new names were, which John said they were broken down first by those born in the 1980s called the sharers. These were the ones who invented the sharing economy. Those born in the 1990s were called the connectors because they are the ones leading us to being connected 24/7 with our smart phones. Everybody’s definition of when the millennials begin and end is different. Mark Zuckerberg is a millennial, and so is John’s daughter who is a high school junior. However, everybody can relate to what year you are born and your high school classmates.

Next up on the panel were Sean O'Toole, Nick Bailey, and Gary Acosta. Nick Bailey serves as Vice President for Zillow Group and helps build the company’s strategic partners and relationships throughout the U.S. Gary is one of the co-founders and CEO of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals. Prior to launching PropertyRadar Sean successfully purchased and flipped more than 150 residential and commercial foreclosures. Together they discuss the different groups millennials are divided into, the big demographic shift that occurred recently, the rate of unemployment, the workforce participation and business formation rate, PropertyRadar and how it grew Sean's client base, the future state of Zillow, the open door policy, and much more on this week's Norris Group real estate radio show and podcast.
