A home automation hub that makes sense--Homey Pro Review Chuck Ackermn's Amazing Light Show Nanoleaf Christmas Lights Review I recently bought the Nanoleaf Smart Holliday String lights for the sale price of $90. They are now at the regular price of $100 at the Nanoleaf Website. I just installed them and have mixed feelings about them. Features: 250 Addressable LEDs | 20m 16+ Million Colors and Tunable Whites Use with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or Matter over Wi-Fi Control with Attached Controller, Nanoleaf App or through a Smart Home Ecosystem I connected the lights to my home prior to putting them up under my eaves. It was pretty straight forward and like pretty much every smart home product you buy it needed a firmware upgrade. The whole process took about ten minutes. Installation is like any other Christmas light installation right down to the frustration with the LEDs not wanting to lay flat against the eaves. Be prepared to do a lot of clamping to make your lights look like good little soldiers. The first pass was to make the lights completely hidden under the eaves. When it was complete, it looked good but not nearly bright enough to give the desired effect. Round two was to remove the lights that took forever to get perfectly installed and attach them to flush to the bottom of the eaves. Again taking time to make the wire look as uniform as possible. The lights don't look like Christmas lights and being flush should placate any HOA that has rules about leaving your Christmas Lights up all year long. Using the new configuration delivered the desired effect of being able to change how my lights look just by pressing a button. There are a lot of different scenes that people have developed so finding something you like is very easy. I may add a thin track to hide the wire but for now I am happy with the lights. There are other options out there that are far more sophisticated and can produce a dazzling light show. But those cost ten times the Nanoleaf's $100 price tag. Chuck Ackermn's Amazing Light Show Hisense U7K Review From time to time our very talented listeners share a review of a product that they have been using. Today, John Lyman was kind enough to review the 75” Hisense U7K which he picked up for $999! Features: Mini-LED - Full array local dimming Quantum Dot technology creates over a billion shades of color HDR - Dolby Vision, HDR10, HDR10+, and HLG. 144Hz Game Mode Pro 2.1.2 50W driving 5 speakers including rear ‘overhead' speakers and a built-in subwoofer Hands Free Voice Control Google TV Supports HDMI 2.1, Apple Home, Apple AirPlay, Wifi 6E, Wisa, NextGenTV Four or five years ago we redid our media room to make it more usable. The downside was I lost my beloved projector and 110” screen. I originally replaced the projector with a 70” Vizio E Series after holiday pricing and our Costco rebate. I paid about $250 knowing I would be upgrading down the road. This fall I was given the green light from the financial committee that I could upgrade the TV. As much as I wanted a bigger screen, we decided that a 75” would be the best fit for the space and keep it safe from our 14-year-old son. I started doing my research on the web and came away with a short list of TVs that was made shorter when a lot of last year's models were not available. I ended up with about 8 TV's (Samsung, LG, etc.) in the under $1300 range and did a RTings shoot-out between them using their TV compare feature. This gave me three finalists. A Vizio P Series Quantum (2021 model), TCL Q7 and the Hisense U7K. The Hisense U7K came out with the best overall score 8.2 with sports and TV viewing receiving a 7.8 and movies receiving an 8.3. These are the 3 things I care most about. The TCL Q7 came in a close second. I then looked for an online review and saw great reviews about the Hisense and TCL - finding comparisons to the 2021 P Series was much harder. Basically, it became a coin toss between the TCL Q7 and Hisense U7K. Reviewers liked both TV's. I ended up picking the Hisense - why you ask - because I'm a good dad and they offered a free copy of NBA 2k24 Black Mamba edition with purchase (see above about my 14-year-old son). Once I had the TV here I found this review from Caleb at Digital Trends Hisense U7K ULED mini-LED TV review: | Digital Trends basically calling it the Best TV for most people. I have also recommended this TV to my boss who purchased the TV. Once the TV arrived it took me about 45 minutes or so to get setup and mounted to my wall and hooked up to my Apple TV. Out of the box the picture was good but with a little too much motion control. However, once I turned on Dolby Vision on my Apple TV and selected Dolby Vision dark mode on the TV, the picture with a little fine tuning was amazing. I have since fine-tuned the Dolby Vision custom for a great picture and family approved. This TV has so many options to adjust the picture with detailed white balance if you are so inclined. However, I started with the RTings Dolby vision settings and then tuned in what looked good for our family. It was time to watch content so as a service to the audience I have sat down over the past few weeks and watched John Wick 1-4 along with football and redzone. I picked the John Wick movies to watch in their entirety because they are really good movies, they have a lot of dark and bright content, and fast-moving action. I have also watched John Wick 1 many times, so I was familiar with the film. I streamed 1-3 through my Apple TV library (I own those) and # 4 on Starz. I was amazed by how good the picture was and looking at John Wick in evening shots with black suit, black shirt, tie, and hair you could make out the different shades of black easily. Nothing looked washed out. The blacks looked really good. In #4, the puffs of blood were red and visible. I noticed how sharp and clear everything looked and the definition between black and bright objects seemed perfect. I didn't notice any blooming scenes. I did get distracted when I was looking at everything and noticing the fine details but the action as it was so good and easy to follow. I then watched about 8 - 007 title sequences and as a bond fan who has seen all these movies multiple times, I know them well. During the white circle bouncing around the black screen, I could sometimes see a little blooming (more so with Connery and Moore), but you had to be looking. I was amazed at the different levels of black in those scenes and noticed things I had never noticed in my many years of watching bond films. I have also watched clips from Aquaman (for the color) during the fight in the Italian village again I was blown away by the color and brightness that was just right. Watching football is really nice. I could make out the color of some of the players' eyes. The color is great and once I had the motion setting dialed in everything was crystal clear and realistic. My son has enjoyed his gaming on this TV (plays a lot of Madden) and the picture does look better than before (sorry I'm not much of a gamer and you don't get many words from a 14 year) One con that has been mentioned in reviews is the viewing angle but the 75” uses an IPS panel for better off angle viewing and the picture is very good. The 65” and smaller use an ADS I believe. I paid $999 for the TV but I'm seeing holiday pricing of $900. This TV had the same price as the TCL Q7 when I was purchasing it. I believe that Hisense, TCL, and other lower mid name recognition brands are using lower price point to get their name out in the market and build market awareness and will eventually raise their prices. It doesn't hurt that they manufacture a lot of their components. TV Settings: I started at RTings website (https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/hisense/u7k-u7-u75k/settings) and scrolled down to the Dolby Vision settings and then tweaked some and here are my current settings (but I'm still having fun tweaking as always: General - Automatic Light Sensor - Off Brightness settings: Local diming - High Brightness - 100 Contrast 55 Black level 0 Dark Detail - Off Active Contrast - Low Color: Color 60 Hue 0 Color Temperature - Standard Clarity Sharpness 10 Super Resolution - Off Smooth Gradient low Noise reduction - low MPEG Noise resolution - Low Motion Enhancement - Film Motion Clearness - Off

Have home equity? Well, you could retire early, thanks to it. If you bought a house from 2009 up until 2021, there's a good chance you could be sitting on tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, or millions of dollars in equity.

We think that you will see that Mountain is a teacher at heart and a wealth of knowledge. ENJOY!Mountain was born in Rio de Janeiro Brazil in 1985 and immigrated to the US when he was 4. His younger years were spent in Florida and eventually moved to Vermont his 8th grade year. Upon graduating, he took an athletic scholarship to compete in track and field at Lynchburg college, in Virginia. He did 2 years of premed before feeling a need to take break from his studies. Mountain enlisted in the marine corps in 2005 and served until almost 2016. He did 5 tours, 4 conducting combat operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, Oman, and other various places around the HOA(horn of Africa) and the Middle East. On his 4th deployment (1st to Afghan) he was part of the TEDD program, and where he got his start with dogs. On his second deployment to Afghanistan he conducted operational planning for the AO and the utilization of special assists, one of which were the labs. Mountain finished his time in Quantico Va as a foreign weapons instructor, teaching DOS, DEA, FBI, SEALs, and MARSOC operators how to utilize and implement a host of foreign weapons. Upon his final promotion, he became the rifle program manager for the Marine Corps. Immediately after his EAS, he dove head first back into dogs. He mentored and studied under some not so great guys, and some great ones. He spent the next few years traveling around the country and attending every class and seminar he could. He eventually started working contracts as an explosives detection handler, and soon after training EDD's for the company, and eventually working a pilot program for the DoD for US Special Operations. It was an advanced Mountain K9 course. In the constant pursuit of knowledge, and chasing his passion for dogs, today Mountain finds himself instructing for Spikes K9's “Spikes School.” He provides tracking courses for agencies around the country, at no cost to the departments. He assists his good friend Armin Winkler with the conduct of handler courses and education for different Tier 1 and 2 assets from the US and abroad. He was an assistant instructor at this year's ATK9 conference and gave lectures at HITS, ranging from behavioral science applied in training, laser directionals, and special operations tactical K9 integration. Currently Mountain lives in Virginia with his amazing wife Ashley, and 3 children: Elijah, Jack, and Tuesday. They're expecting their fourth at the end of the month! Mountain owns and operates Para Bellum K9, which offers education and assistance to units around the country for LEO and Military K9's.

In this podcast, Reuben Saltzman and Tessa Murry host Kyle Miller from All Around, exploring the nuances of home inspections within Homeowners Associations (HOAs). Kyle emphasizes the critical importance of understanding the division of responsibilities between homeowners and the association, shedding light on financial obligations, liabilities, and the prevalence of water intrusion issues during exterior renovations in multi-family buildings. The discussion covers the need for potential buyers to assess the external maintenance standards of HOA-managed properties, the necessity of inspecting exteriors despite being assumed to be covered by the association, and the challenges of outdated construction methods leading to water-related problems in almost every renovation project. Practical insights on roofing, siding, and window selection offer valuable guidance for potential homebuyers navigating HOA-managed properties.

Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are getting closer to providing insurance companies with a new underwriting tool to combat fraud: the ability to review meeting minutes and other public documents from homeowners and condominium associations, whose communities are home to nearly half of Florida's 22.3 million residents.Several Florida associations have been accused of recent wrongdoing, including one where four former board members were arrested, accused of engaging in a multi-million dollar embezzlement of monthly dues from residents. Former Florida Deputy Insurance Commissioner Lisa Miller sat down with an insurance lawyer and an insurance services company executive who uses AI, to find out how often this fraud happens, how it increases property insurance rates, and exactly how the new technology to fight it will work.Show Notes The South Florida Sun Sentinel did a recent exposé of a West Miami development called The Hammocks, a 6,500-unit community of houses, townhouses, and condominiums. Four former association board members were arrested for allegedly engaging in an intricate scheme to embezzle millions of dollars in monthly dues from residents. Authorities say $2.4 million in checks were written to five companies that did little or no work for the homeowners association (HOA) – two of them owned by the husband of the former board president. Andy McGuire, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-Founder of PEAK6 InsurTech, said such fraudulent practices contribute to inflationary pricing and higher insurance rates. He said advances in technology, especially artificial intelligence (AI) and the machine learning process, are providing better insights into risk. His company's subsidiary, Focus Technologies, is doing this today to serve its customers better. “With enough observations, you can run a model, for example, on the language used in the meeting minutes to potentially pick up on schemes,” said McGuire. “Now that we have this example, for this particular issue, we can build an AI and teach it with these talk paths or words and knowing that it resulted in fraud, you have your first learning. You can get enough positive observations that you now have a model that an underwriter can load the minutes into and get a prediction. Combine that with financial data and a propensity to commit fraud of each individual member of the board, and you have a fully automated decision tree. I don't think we're totally there yet, but we're really close. This is the future,” said McGuire, whose 25 years in the industry include risk management and reinsurance.Tiffany Rothenberg is a Partner at the Kelly Kronenberg law firm's West Palm Beach office in the heart of Florida's condominium country. She represents commercial property insurance companies in complex coverage disputes and is an expert in the HOA and condominium association insurance claims arena. “I can't tell you how frequently we end up seeing this kind of a scenario,” Rothenberg told host Lisa Miller. “I just had a case here in Palm Beach County, where the association submitted a $4.5 million dollar Hurricane Irma claim for roof damage. When we started to review their condo records, we discovered that the association actually had five roof replacement proposals that were all under $1 million. And then during depositions, it came out they actually signed a contract with one of those roofing contractors for around...

In this inspiring episode of the podcast, I introduce you to Dee Rowe, a remarkable individual who has navigated the tumultuous waters of life, from being a stressed-out, workaholic single mom to discovering a path of self-discovery and transformation. Dee's journey began with a profound realization triggered by a seemingly insignificant event in October 2014. At the urging of her boyfriend, she ventured into the world of multi-level marketing (MLM) to sell protein shakes and herbal cleanse drinks. Her hope was to escape her toxic job in HOA management. However, her MLM venture didn't bring the financial success she had anticipated. Instead, it led to a profound transformation. Unbeknownst to Dee, this experience became a catalyst for change. She began to connect the dots between her diet, her mental well-being, and her overall health. During her daily commute, she filled her mind with positive affirmations, and on the way home, she immersed herself in self-development books and podcasts. She started incorporating practices like yoga and meditation into her routine to find grounding and balance. Life continued to throw challenges her way. Dee endured two traumatic breakups, faced difficulties with her daughter's living situation, and grappled with health issues that drastically limited her diet. Her career remained toxic, and bills were a constant source of stress. But through it all, Dee refused to give up. She found her balance time and again, and with each setback, she emerged stronger and wiser. Her journey of growth eventually led her to a loving relationship and marriage amidst the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Dee also made the courageous decision to leave her toxic career behind and embark on a new path, launching an online business that brings her genuine happiness. Her life transformed from one of survival to one of thriving. Dee's story is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the power of embracing failure as a stepping stone to success. Join me as we follow Dee Rowe on her ongoing journey of finding balance and discover how her experiences and insights might just help you find your own equilibrium in life.

Check it out below: Braedon Hebert (00:00:00) - So part of our technology will automatically download all those all those types of utility invoices then extract the data. So to eliminate any sort of data entry required then it can be approved and paid. Intro (00:00:15) - Welcome to the how to Scale Commercial Real Estate show. Whether you are an active or passive investor, we'll teach you how to scale your real estate investing business into something big. Sam Wilson (00:00:28) - Braden Hebert is the co-founder of Condo Works, which is an accounts payable automation platform built for property management companies. Braden is also an accountant turned entrepreneur. Braden, welcome to the show. Braedon Hebert (00:00:40) - Yes. Thanks, Sam. Glad to be here. Sam Wilson (00:00:42) - Absolutely. The pleasure is mine. Braden. There are three questions I ask every guest who comes on the show in 90s or less. Can you tell me where did you start? Where are you now? And how did you get there? Braedon Hebert (00:00:52) - So as you alluded to, my I got my start as an accountant working for one of the big accounting firms, then went to a big company. But I entered the the startup and tech world about a decade ago in that role. Braedon Hebert (00:01:05) - And that's where I met my current co-founder, who's the who was the chief technology officer of that first company. And so my path was was in the startup tech world in those finance roles. I went through some acquisition acquisitions throughout that, but wanted to take the leap into the the early stage incubation stage of a company and joined him as a as a co-founder of Condor Works. Sam Wilson (00:01:33) - That's really cool. What is the what is the opportunity that you guys see? I guess you know, one, the startup tech world is highly competitive. And, you know, I can't imagine jumping into that. That's something that kudos to you guys, you know, for being willing to take those those risks I think that's really cool. But what's the opportunity that you guys see in what you're doing right now. And why is now the time to do it? Braedon Hebert (00:01:58) - So maybe I'll go back to the to the very beginning. So one of the things that my, my co-founder did, in addition to helping build and develop companies, is he also became the treasurer on his condo board. Braedon Hebert (00:02:10) - And that's where he saw firsthand some of the the challenges that face property management companies when it comes to processing and paying their bills. So there's there's a high invoice volume. There's multiple stakeholders plus complexity, not from the accounting side, but operationally, if you're trying to keep track of discrete financial records across all of your properties, the the accuracy and routing and recording of those invoices is critical. But but complex because paired with those challenges, it's also an industry that has been slower to adopt some of the more modern technological solutions. And so, for example, he was signing hundreds of checks every month. He was seeing vendors taking six months to get paid. And, you know, when you calculate the internal cost to the property management companies, it can cost 15 to $20 per per invoice just to pay that. So he said, well, this is awful. Ben being the tech guy he is, he said there's there must be a better way and I'm going to build it. And so that's that's how calendar works was born. Braedon Hebert (00:03:17) - And it was. And we see that that pain that still exists across across many property management companies. Sam Wilson (00:03:23) - Got it. No, that's really interesting. How does this differ. And forgive my ignorance here because I neither run a tech startup. I don't run a accounts payable automation platform. And um, yeah, anyway, forget what else, I don't run. But anyway, all of those being said. When it comes to accounts payable. In my mind, I think, gosh, I mean, it seems like you could just get ACH set up out of your various bank accounts, you receive your invoices, you ACH or vendors, and off you go. Why is it not so simple? Braedon Hebert (00:03:56) - So I would I would back up. You know, paying it can sometimes be the easy part. It's it's the, the full cycle being receiving or getting the invoices than having it properly approved, entering that information into the accounting system. So recording that invoice and then and then issuing payment. So you know our platform handles that end to end with with tech and automation built in throughout that process. Braedon Hebert (00:04:26) - So I'll you know, one of our my favorite examples is is a utility bill. So you know, gas power, water even, you know, the telecom bills. Um, either they're they're coming in the mail a couple of weeks later, then you're rushing to pay them, or someone has to spend time logging in and clicking, downloading, download, invoice, download, invoice downloading. So we we know some of our customers were spending days just doing that. So part of our technology will automatically download all those all those types of utility invoices then extract the data. So to eliminate any sort of data entry required then it can be approved and paid. And so a lot of that upfront work in terms of just handling the invoices can be eliminated, which once you get to a certain scale, you know, some some of our customers are processing thousands, 10,000 invoices a month. And so that that can really add up, uh, across the team. Sam Wilson (00:05:26) - And the opportunity for. Sam Wilson (00:05:29) - Error. Sam Wilson (00:05:30) - I mean, just becomes magnified where it's like, did we get that utility invoice that's emailed, actually paid, and did it get logged properly? And we're counting on, which is just crazy in 2023, we're still counting on human touch on some of those things where it's like. Sam Wilson (00:05:48) - And so no, I see what you're saying. And that makes a lot of sense, especially for property management companies that are handling, like you said, you know, thousands potentially of invoices a month and going, gosh, is this is this being properly logged? I mean, even for us at just the handful of facilities that we own it, we're trying to put those processes in place where it's like, hey, this is. The is that paid this month, I don't know. So there are some similar meetings we were having just recently were like, is that okay? No, this needs to be a system like very, very tight knit system. Maybe we're not saying. Braedon Hebert (00:06:16) - Hey Sam, our lights went out. What happened? Oh, shoot. That that invoice that I guess we didn't get it didn't forgot to pay it. And. Yeah, that's the worst that can happen. Sam Wilson (00:06:27) - Absolutely. Absolutely. Yeah. You get a disconnect notice and you're like, how do we. And which we haven't had a disconnect notice. Sam Wilson (00:06:33) - But I'm just thinking worst case like you're saying like lights went out or you get a disconnect. How is this happening. And I can see. Braedon Hebert (00:06:38) - How it happens. That was a theoretical example of course. Sam Wilson (00:06:41) - Right, right. Luckily it has not happened to us. But that is I mean, I could see it very easily happening accidentally or it's like we don't know how we missed that. So that's that's really cool. Can you tell me we talked about this a little bit before we kicked off the show? You use the word condo more broadly maybe than what I would say here in the States. Can you define really kind of the the broader scale of the product that you guys are developing in the, in the what condo means? Braedon Hebert (00:07:09) - Yeah. So yeah, I had said our current branding gives away a bit of our origin. So maybe if I say the word aboot or process or process, I'll also give away my Canadian roots. So we got our start in Ontario. In Canada where we're condo is kind of the catch all term for a HOA or community or association. Braedon Hebert (00:07:32) - And that's that's where we got our start. And that was the the branding and the website that was that we've been developing. But our goal more broadly is to be is to be a solution for, for all types of, of property management companies. So whether it's the condo HOA association as well as commercial residential. And I was actually looking up our customer roster. We have a senior lifestyle management company in the Tennessee area as well. So it's it's you know, the the challenges are similar. And it's from a branding. It's something that's on the on the strategic table for us. But yeah, thank thanks for bringing that up. Uh, just to be able to help. Yeah. Broaden the conversation and to help to clarify that. Sam Wilson (00:08:18) - Right. Right. Because I mean, your product could very easily be deployed across industrial facilities or industrial property managers to multifamily property managers to, I mean, anybody that's managing a large portfolio of assets that, like you said, you know, has has an incredible accounts, payroll. Sam Wilson (00:08:35) - Or accounts payable. Excuse me. If I could speak today, you know, invoices coming in. You need to have that product where you can reasonably take those in, make sure they get paid, and then do it again without without making sure that there's a manual process to keep track of that. So, Braden, one of the things that you said in the onboarding question, I always asked us and again, for those of you that listen, what's a fun fact or surprising view in one of the views that you put in there, Braden, was that tell me a company's tech stack, and I can tell you the growth rate. I think that's really, really interesting. What does that mean? Braedon Hebert (00:09:08) - I. Yeah. Like the the question prompted. Trying to be a bit controversial or edgy but so we've. You know in building this company and talking to hundreds or property management companies, you start to see different patterns. And as a, as a business, it's in you know, real estate in general is often it's is quite local. Braedon Hebert (00:09:29) - And there are, you know, there are companies that's, that's that's their focus. That's that's where they want to go. But there's others that I call it a bit. I use the term escape velocity for those that are able to, to, to build a company that expands. Into a wider geographic area. And so there's there's a, you know, in property management specifically, there's there's their startup costs, although the switching costs are low. So it's really it's relatively easy to create your own. If you're a property manager, you get four properties. You can you can exist as a standalone business. But those that obtain the escape velocity are the ones that, that, that, that have that extra is that whether it's ambition or operational excellence, to be able to, to grow and specifically think manage people is a huge part of that. Beyond, you know, beyond their local area, beyond the, the, the, the greater metropolitan areas that they ran into to, to, to to grow into a much, much bigger footprint. Braedon Hebert (00:10:31) - Um, and so I and I the other pattern is that the, the use of technology is a common characteristic of those companies that are able to obtain that escape velocity. So operationally they have to be be sold. They the managing of people is is a huge part of that. But the being able to adapt and and effectively use with the modern technological tools that exist can really help those companies to, to, to grow at a higher rate than, than others who, who aren't necessarily doing that. Sam Wilson (00:11:10) - I think that's a really insightful observation. It's not something I would have thought about, but what are some of the things, I guess, that as as you see those various companies that are willing to embrace technology, willing to embrace automation, like. Sam Wilson (00:11:27) - What. Sam Wilson (00:11:27) - Does that say about them? Because there's more to it than just, hey, I like technology and automation. There's something about their mindset. And their approach. Braedon Hebert (00:11:37) - Is, yeah, it's not chasing the new shiny thing, but it is a it is a mindset that exists that they're thinking about how to how to improve their business. Braedon Hebert (00:11:48) - So they're they're not chasing the, you know, every the everyday fires. They're able to elevate it and think strategically. So, you know, it's not about, hey, we're it's not just, hey, we're we have these cool tech toys. It's it's they're thinking strategically about how to just effectively manage their business. And, you know, the the tech they use is a part of that. But it is a common pattern that we've observed amongst those companies that do seem to have a have a higher growth rate than others that aren't there. Sam Wilson (00:12:18) - Yeah. No, I think that's, that's that's really insightful. And you said not putting out fires because it takes time. I mean, it takes time to think through. Yeah. There's automations. There's there's there's technology out there. But implementing it is a discipline I think. I know at least it is for me. Maybe I'm not that bright and I'm certainly not tech savvy. And so for me, it's harder to be like, okay, how are we going to use this tool effectively in our business? And then how does it act? Or how can we structure it such that it solves problems without creating a whole pile of new ones that now is now just more work? And so I think that's but figuring those things out to where you're getting beyond the day to day, like, okay, hey, this is how this technology solves problems and saves us time and money is really, really cool. Sam Wilson (00:13:04) - What how did how do you view that as it pertains to your business? Like what are what are you guys currently doing to use tech to establish or get that escape velocity that you need? Braedon Hebert (00:13:19) - Yes. Yeah. It's it's. So I, we had a meeting with our or some of our investors last night and they, we're also guilty of that as well in that being able to focus on your current customers and you want to provide a good, good level of service for them and a really good experience. And that can often trump, you know, you know, Trump thinking about, okay, this is this is I need I need time to work on the business. So I was working in the business, working on the business and carving that out. And that's where one of the benefits of of having, you know, whether it's a board of advisors or your business, business groups that you may be in is is it does act as a forcing function for you to, to to think about the business and how to how to improve it. Braedon Hebert (00:14:08) - Um, for, for tech, one of the benefits of being a tech company is that we can build a lot of our own, our own solutions, right, to help that. So we we've we got our start in in about late 2019 and we've seen it growing across Canada, United States, different different types of property management companies. But we've managed to do so and and multiply the footprint of the company without multiplying the amount of people that we need to support that customer base. And so that's that's having a discipline from a product development standpoint, not to just focus on new features or the shiny things for us are being, you know, new things for us develop. It's also being able to focus on, you know, how do we make our system as efficient. That not only helps us, but it does also help our customers in that they're they they have less, less questions. And there's there's things that make it easier for them. So it does come down to to discipline though, at the end of the day, to, to force yourself to take that step back. Sam Wilson (00:15:10) - It is hard. It is absolutely hard. We in the in our laundry facility business, you know, we use software inside of that and it's interesting to watch and it's newer, not completely new, but they're still constantly solving problems. And there's even, you know, there's even forums where we can put in feature requests where it's like, hey, you know, we'd love to see, you know, XYZ on our point of sale or whatever, you know, whatever the the feature is. And I would think for you guys, that same thing probably is true where people are constantly saying, hey, what's, you know, can we have this feature? Can we add that? Can we add this? How do you prioritize those in what's maybe a problem that you guys are actively internally trying to solve that you haven't solved yet? Braedon Hebert (00:15:53) - The prioritization question is is tough because everybody has their. Yeah has has. Yeah that's what they want. So you have to balance. One is is this a is this a one off for this one customer. Braedon Hebert (00:16:08) - Some of them are are louder than others. And so you have to consider is this broadly applicable. Will feature customers find this attractive. And also you have to also wait that as to the revenue potential as well. And so we've had some of our as we've grown we've gotten bigger customers that have have have pushed us in a good way to develop the features that they, as a bigger company, need for their scale. And so that's that's been, you know, how we have prioritized those, those features and. Terms of what's on our on our roadmap. The some of the ones that I'm, I'm personally most excited about is like is to help. There's a lot of similarities and applicability be going from, you know, HOA or communities to commercial and residential. Um, there are certain nuances to, you know, outside of the HOA space that that do differ. And so it's it's there are certain features that would be very well received by certain. Potential customers that we've had conversations with in the, in the commercial space, um, for example, or even in, in rather than being third party managers, you're an asset manager where you own everything versus in the space, you're managing independent hoa's. Braedon Hebert (00:17:39) - And so, um, being able to, to achieve that vision, the more broad of of being able to cater to property management more broadly, um, building off of that, that HOA Association condo, um, base. Sam Wilson (00:17:54) - Got it. That's really, really cool. All right. Last and final question for you is what's something about your software or your solution maybe that I haven't asked that you would want to make sure that we cover. Braedon Hebert (00:18:07) - Well, we spoke about the the automated utility downloading, which is is one of those eye catching features as boring as it sounds. Um, yeah. But everyone, even personally, everyone hates dealing with their utility bills. So if we can automate that, that's that's something that that people really, really enjoy. I there's if I can say to you, so what if if, if, if you're if your current operations include handling paper whether that's receiving invoices on paper, having a cabinet that you store everything in or signing, signing paper checks, you know if that can if you can envision that going away. Braedon Hebert (00:18:53) - That's that's yeah. Especially when we talk to owners, oftentimes they're the ones who sign the checks. And it's like, okay, what happens if you go on vacation? Well, you know, I signed a bunch before I leave and then I have a huge stack when I come back. Okay. Well, you know, the the the conveyor belt doesn't have to stop running. Uh, in those, in those scenarios. Um, so that's one and I think the other one that in the larger scales is, is being able to really configure, um, who needs to approve what invoice. And so it's reducing a lot of the noise, but also automating how who needs to approve what invoice and when and enforcing that. So one, it reduces work, but also it helps enhance internal controls to make sure that invoices are being properly, properly screened. So that's that's we're getting a little deep there. But that's know that's the stuff that we care about though. Sam Wilson (00:19:43) - Those are huge pain points that you're solving for though especially that invoice. Sam Wilson (00:19:49) - I mean, at least that one that invoice approval speaks to me where it's like, you know, as we grow, I go, my gosh, you know, I don't want to be in front of every invoice that comes through the door and have to be the one that signs off on like, oh, yeah, okay. You know, whatever it is we're say we're. Redoing a facility the paving contractor sends there. Like, I mean, there should be a way to and again, maybe that's just a, you know, small example that doesn't doesn't apply. But I think there's you're touching on some things that everyone thinks about and is trying to figure out a way to solve. So that's very, very cool. Braden, thank you for taking the time to come on the show today. I certainly enjoyed it. It was great learning about what you guys do, how you do it, and the opportunity you guys see in the market right now. And it sounds like it's being very well received.

Other than that brief information I just shared, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Brandon Barnum?” Now, let me kind of clear the waters a little bit. “HOA” is sometimes a “bad word” when it comes to homeownership. But your “HOA” is not about keeping someone's front yard grass to less than four inches and things like that, correct? How did you get started down this path? Referrals ended up being something that allowed you to stand out from the crowd. How did you discover the power of referrals? It all came down to “find a need and fill it.” But, at the same time, you can't be all things to all people. We need to, for lack of a better term, “niche down.” At what point did you realize you had discovered, “your niche?” Your book is “Raving Referrals: The Proven Step-by-Step System to Attract Profitable Prospects.” Why did you write this book and why publish it now? This is not just a book – but it is series! Correct? Share with us about that… In your book, “Raving Referrals,” you discuss the “7 Laws of Raving Referrals.” Can you share those 7 laws with us? What is the “Referral Partner Blueprint?” You are also a leader in Artificial Intelligence as the CEO of “Codebreaker Technology.” What is that and what does it do? I can't get away from your book, “Raving...

Esther finally unmasks Haman. She tells the King about Haman's plot to destroy, kill and annihilate her and her people. Xerxes is so unhappy he gets up and leaves his wine at the table. Now that says something for a guy that threw a 187 day party! Join Ken and Mike as they discuss the events of Haman's unmasking and demise. And how these events help us see the way we're to deal with the flesh in our own lives, from its revealing to its crucifixion. The guys also answer a great question from a listener about similarities and differences between Christian and church culture in Colorado, Florida, and Oregon. What is Ministr-eeze? And are certain biblical characters about to have a run in with their local HOA?Passage: Esther 7

On March 13, 2020, 42-year-old Huong Helene Nguyen is reported missing to the New Orleans Police Department. By 8:10 p.m. that day, the authorities discover her body less than a mile from her home. Huong's killer shot her multiple times, shoved her body into the trunk of her own car, drove the car to a remote parking lot, and abandoned it. Investigators interview Huong's family members and friends, but it seems as though no strong leads turn up. A week later, on March 20, Huong's funeral services are held. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only a limited number of Huong's immediate family can attend. But Huong's younger brother whom she lived with, 37-year-old Hoa Phong Nguyen, is conspicuously absent. Hours later, the NOPD announces that they have a warrant for Hoa's arrest. He is being charged with his sister's murder — and he's on the run. In episode 271, Jac and Alexis examine the complicated path that the Nguyen family is forced to take as they navigate the physical and emotional loss of two children.

Negotiating has become more complicated now that the market has shifted. Currently, there's a mixture of homes that are selling quickly, with competing offers, as well as homes that are taking longer to sell, with perhaps only one offer. This means you've got to sharpen your skills if you want to win every time! Welcome back to America's #1 Daily Podcast, featuring America's #1 Real Estate Coaches and Top EXP Realty Sponsors in the World, Tim and Julie Harris.

Instant FREE Access Now: YES, Enroll Me NOW In Premier Coaching https://members.timandjulieharris.com Mistake #1: Lack of Communication from both the Buyer's Agent and the Listing Agent. If you want to win, you need a meeting of the minds. The definition of negotiation is the reaching of a mutual agreement that all parties are satisfied with. You have to actually talk to each other to make this happen! Example 1: Listing agents, if you want to receive offers that are easy to say 'yes' to, put the desired terms into the agent-to-agent comments in the MLS, and/or actually call all those buyers' agents back who haunt you looking for the details that will help them win! REAL ESTATE LEADS, LEADS and more LEADS: Question: What is Tim and Julie Harris's favorite PROBATE LEAD PROVIDER? Simple, https://alltheleads.com/harris Example 2: Buyers agents: actually read all comments in the MLS and counsel your buyers to comply with as many of the terms as possible, if they intend to actually win! If there are comments, you must find the listing agent and ask them, other than price, what will it take to win? Does the seller want a specific closing date or a lease back, or to keep the fancy chandelier? Find out and see if you can deliver a contract they'll accept. Mistake #2: No lender's letter or proof of cash, a weak lender's letter, or a boilerplate letter. If your buyer has financing, their lender's letter needs to show ideally that they are loan-committed, or at least pre-approved. It needs to state that their ratios, credit, employment, and downpayment are all adequate and verified. Additionally, the lender should call the listing agent and 'vouch' for the buyer's ability to close. Ready to become an EXPIRED Listing Agent? As promised, here is the discount link for the EXPIRED LISTING LEADS: https://www.redx.com/affiliate/tim-and-julie-harris/?aff_code=670699 *If you are a Premier Coaching Member, simply use your 'ultimate addendum' to avoid this mistake! Mistake #3: Not being specific about the seller's concessions. This ranges from asking for a specific type of home warranty for a specific price, to asking for thousands of dollars towards buyer's closing costs. The first issue is easy. Check the box on the offer stating the buyer wants a home warranty, then state which warranty, that it's for one year, and will cost $X. The second issue is more tricky. If you're asking for the seller to contribute $5,000 towards buyers closing costs, state (after speaking with your buyer and their lender), what those funds will go to. Buying down the interest rate, and paying prepaid costs like taxes, homeowners insurance, and prepaid HOA deposits are all appropriate. Ask for a good-faith estimate so you can be specific. Note: some lenders will inflate costs when they know the seller is contributing thousands to the deal. Failure to be careful when you're dealing with dollars will almost always bite you in the butt prior to closing and guess who's going to pay the price if there's confusion!
