If you are not familiar with quadrants, there are four of them.

Bruce and Aaron discuss the different Quadrants, what years they take place in, where Bruce moves to during a particular quadrant, his goals for doing business in Florida, and much more on this week's Norris Group real estate radio show and podcast.

In a role reversal, Aaron Norris is joined this week by his own dad and the Norris Group’s very own Bruce Norris. They received a lot of calls and emails asking them about Florida, and they assured everyone that Doug Duncan, Peter Fortunato, and John Schaub had some property damage but are doing ok. Bruce said he built his Florida project to the spec of knowing this could happen. Leesburg has probably not seen a hurricane in 100 years that was really a direct hit. The eye went directly over them, and one roof was hit by a jagged object. Outside of this, they have very little damage. Part of this came from his experience with Hurricane Andrew where he looked at the survivability of different types of construction. This included different types of construction including manufactured homes versus stick built or concrete.

Bruce and Aaron discuss the repercussions from Hurricane's Irma and Harvey, the difference between the two when it came to the type of damage, Bruce's job after Hurricane Andrew to help put things together, the main issue in Florida regarding flood insurance, whether California could see a decline in contractors, Florida's current quadrant, and much more on this week's Norris Group real estate radio show and podcast.
