THE REAL ESTATE SESSIONS PODCAST Episode 295: Host: BILL RISSER Guest: WENDY POLLACK Episode Summary: Meet today's guest https://www.realliving.com/wendy.pollack (Wendy Pollack), a realtor and a Professional Development Specialist at https://www.realliving.com/cypress-realty (Real Living Cypress Realty) in Fort Myers, Florida. In this episode, I sit with Wendy, who grew up in Long Island, New York, and is currently based in Fort Myers, Lee County, Florida. She talks about her path into Real Estate, exploring to find the right career option for her skillset, with her passion for helping new Real Estate agents. Top Takeaways: "I'm not in it for the money. I'm in it really to see them succeed." - [Wendy Pollack] "The most important thing is your sphere of influence, people who know you, like you, and trust you." - [Wendy Pollack] Episode Highlights: [00:20] Intro [01:00] Meet today's guest, Wendy Pollack. [06:25] What career were you thinking about as a teenager? [14:40] How did you educate yourself so you could help others? [18:06] Why Wendy settled in Fort Myers. [19:30] What one piece of advice would you give a new agent? [21:38] Outro Episode Notes: As a teenager, Wendy had considered going into a fashion-based career while working at a gift store till she went to college at Adelphi University. She had studied nursing for a few months, till she realized it wasn't for her and changed to study Exercise Physiology. After school, she worked in Cardiac rehab and then corporate fitness. Wendy got into Real Estate after she relocated to Florida 27 years ago. She had a few clients in Real Estate and was encouraged to get involved in it. She had enjoyed the experience but took a break at some point to raise her son till he was 13 before getting back into Real Estate again. After returning to work for a while, an opportunity opened up with a position as Professional Development, Recruiting, and Sales Manager. Wendy shares that she loves helping new realtors become successful, which is her job. Bill shares that Nursing is the second most common career that can quickly pivot to and succeed in Real Estate. Seeing her son take up his passion for photography also encouraged her to focus more on learning about her work and getting well educated on it. She had gotten more attracted to Instagram, which she employs as a tool in her work. Other forms of technology besides social media are CRM programs, Drip Campaigns, newsletters, and different kinds of automation. Wendy shares that they settled in Fort Myers to get away from the people in the area where she grew up and get closer to a beach environment with the seaside views and lovely weather. Essential advice to new agents: The most important thing is your sphere of influence, people who know you, like you, and trust you. If you have a good sphere of influence, you will work faster and get ahead quicker. If you don't have that sphere, you have to work hard in your environment. Being proactive and reaching out to people still definitely works.

The southeastern corner of Iowa is home to Lee County. There, a little town called Donnellson has one water-tower, some shops, a nice city park and the distinction of having its first organized music scene created by one live-music-loving farmer by the name of Doug Seyb. For 15 years, Doug ran the quasi-house-concert-meets-Grange-meeting-meets-Austin City Limits "Under The Water Tower" series. It was a series that presented live, independent musicians, offering their own originals and pretty much nothing else, to a populace that hungered for community through music. A "whos-who" of regional, local, national and international artists, all independent and all featuring their own original music visited "Under the Water Tower." It was never a money-maker, but a community sustainer. It was, truthfully, what real music should be all about. All was well with this small, well attended temple of independent music. That was, until the music licensing agency of ASCAP asked Doug for money to support the very musicians Seyb was supporting. What amounted were thinly veiled (and not so thinly veiled) threats of lawsuits by ASCAP representatives for their "licensing fee" in order for Doug to continue the public gathering at Under the Water Tower. The result? Seyb ended the series. ASCAP did not get their money they maintained was being used to support the artists featured at the venue. Those artists the agency was supposedly supporting lost a venue and desperately needed funds for their survival. And the folks of Lee County lost community and joy through music. Sadly, this has been part of an ongoing campaign by licensing agencies that have successfully driven live music out of small, rural and for all intents and purposes, non-profit venues. Mom and Pop restaurants and coffee houses lost out. Nobody won. Independent artists are now turning to house concerts and other under-the-radar opportunities to survive. Music promoters like Seyb are a treasure of the live, independent musical performers and their audiences. Doug, a farmer by trade has continued to support live, independent music in Lee County through other less-traditional opportunities. He offers advice to those wishing to create house concerts and other means of keeping live, original, rural, regional music alive and kicking. The Farmer still raises music.

We discuss how Covid-19 has impacted the Law Enforcement community in Southwest Florida and beyond, the Sheriff's love and caring concern for animals, how his futuristic technology has been a huge help in fighting crime in Lee County, the support the community has given to his agency and his ability, through strong leadership, to bond his agency in a special way.

In September of 2018, Sheriff Carmine Marceno was appointed by Governor Scott to serve as the Lee County Sheriff and elected to his position in 2020 by a landslide.

Start at the Plant Northern Piedmont Natives Facebook page and tell them Lonnie Murray sent you! On today’s show:A quick update on what Albemarle Community Development Department is up toThe number of new COVID-19 cases in Virginia hits a months-long highThe Commonwealth of Virginia wants your input on future train service Charlottesville City Council is angry about something The pandemic is not over, and one set of facts to support that statement is reported daily by the Virginia Department of Health. Today, the agency reports another 721 new cases, the highest one-day total in the past few months. The seven-day average for new daily cases is 429 and the percent positivity is three percent. Once a week, the VDH updates a dashboard that breaks down cases by vaccination status. From June 1 through July 9, 96.98 percent of the 7,486 new cases reported were in people who were not fully vaccinated. The rest are what are known as breakthrough cases. Last Friday, University of Virginia Health System director of hospital epidemiology Dr. Cost Sifri, said there’s an uptick nationwide of rising COVID-19 cases.“We’re seeing a steady climb,” Dr. Sifri said. “It’s being driven in parts of the country that have two things. It’s a low vaccination rate and the Delta variant. And that’s as we had predicted a month or a month and a half ago, unfortunately.”As of today, 53.2 percent of Virginians are fully vaccinated, with higher rates generally reported in metropolitan areas and lower ones in rural areas. For instance, Lee County at the southwestern tip of Virginia reports 29 percent fully vaccinated whereas that number is 62.3 percent in Albemarle County. However, the number drops to 53.7 percent in Charlottesville.Reports are out today that Louisiana Representative Steve Scalise finally got vaccinated this past Sunday, citing concerns over the Delta variant of COVID-19. “The Delta variant is far and away the most fit virus and the most dangerous virus that we’ve seen to date but it doesn’t mean it’s the end of line,” Dr. Sifri said. “New mutations could crop up and the Delta variant or new types of variants could develop elsewhere around the world and that gives us a lot of concern.”Don’t throw your mask away just yet. Source: Virginia Department of HealthAfter years of planning and several studies, construction has begun on the Belmont Bridge. The city won’t hold an official information session on the project until August 11, but crews have begun grading land to the west of the bridge for a temporary parking lot. In June, the city issued a notice to proceed to the Caton Construction Group to implement a $23.7 million contract to replace the bridge with a completion date of January 2024. This area will be the site of a temporary parking lot. More details will be known after the information session on August 11The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation has opened an online survey to seek feedback on the forthcoming Statewide Rail Plan. The introduction to the feedback form states that the purpose is to study “the feasibility of instituting cross-state intercity passenger rail service linking Hampton Roads, Richmond, and the New River Valley, also known as the Commonwealth Corridor.” Participants are to asked to rank their priorities, what they’d consider as trade-offs, and what locations should be connected. For more information on the development of the Statewide Rail Plan, visit this link. (take the survey) (take the survey)For another survey, Albemarle County is asking residents to report their broadband needs, particularly in areas that are not currently served. Firefly VA is a subsidiary of the Central Virginia Electric Cooperative formed to expand Internet through public-private partnerships. They’re looking to create a map for their Regional Internet Service Expansion (RISE) Project and want to plot out areas that only have satellite or cell phone internet as well as areas served by internet at less than 25 megabits per second. The finding will help prioritize the use of state and federal funding. (survey)*Former Charlottesville Mayor Maurice Cox has been the Commissioner of Chicago’s Department of Planning and Development since October 2019. Earlier this month, the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Chicago has just created a Design Committee that will advise on approvals of major developments there. Cox served as Mayor from 2002 to 2004, and was in that position when the City Council approved major zoning update. He served in a similar position in Detroit before moving to Chicago. The Design Committee will examine projects in excess of 10 acres, over 2,500 residential units, and high rises over 80 feet tall. Cox served as Charlottesville Mayor from 2002 to 2004. Read his bio on the City of Chicago’s website, which is where this image came from. Meanwhile, life and land use changes have moved on in Charlottesville and Albemarle County. The Albemarle Planning Commission got an update from their Community Development Director at their meeting on July 6. Jodie Filardo became the director of that entity in September 2019. (review the presentation)“Our primary focus day in and day out is on land use and the building of homes and commercial properties, which directly impact lifestyles,” Filardo said. “Where you live, work and play, and how you get there, are all areas we think about and plan for every day.”That work is governed by a plan that is occasionally presented to the Board of Supervisors, who then give direction on what priorities should be undertaken. The last time that happened was this past May. Filardo said her department’s staff shrunk by nearly 11 percent due to retirements and the freezing of several positions due to the county’s cautionary approach to budgeting. Several of those have since been filled, such as an additional zoning compliance officer. Filardo reminded the Planning Commission that work on policy issues comes as staff has capacity. Current projects underway continued work to develop the Housing Albemarle Plan, a form-based code for the area around the intersection of Rio Road and U.S. 29, assistance with the Urban Rivanna River Corridor Plan, and the Crozet Master Plan. The Board of Supervisors will get a look at the second phase of the county’s Stream Health Initiative tomorrow. A slide from Filardo’s presentation listing what land use policy initiatives are underway. Download the whole presentation. One project not yet underway but in the queue is an update on the county’s wireless policy. Albemarle will hire a consultant to do the work to update a policy that’s been in place since December 2000. Filardo said one need is to continue to boost capacity by hiring more staff and increasing efficiencies. “As the county is now increasingly urban, [the Planning Commission] and the community are asking for faster and more efficient services from Community Development,” Filardo said. Last September, the Board of Supervisors directed the department to move more swiftly on a plan to update the zoning code while concurrently reviewing parts of the Comprehensive Plan. “The comp plan work is a high priority and will occur incrementally in phases,” said Amelia McCulley, the deputy director of the Community Development Department. “We identified zoning ordinance work that corresponds with the policy work in the comp plan so those intersecting efforts will align and be scheduled accordingly with work products in each phase.”This may seem obscure, but an update of the bureaucracy is intended to help increase the county’s ability to help provide affordable housing. McCulley provides one example of what isn’t currently working. “Our density bonus requirements are outdated and inconsistent between zoning districts,” McCulley said. “They are intended to provide a bonus for measures and improvements above and beyond ordinance requirements.”For instance, a developer of a housing project between Berkmar Drive and Woodburn called Berkmar Overlook filed a site plan in 2019 that anticipated getting additional units through two types of bonus density. However, staff later wrote to explain that no bonuses were allowed in the existing R-6 zoning. The original application had been for 71 single family units with eight townhouse units through a bonus density and other units granted through a tree preservation bonus. What’s actually getting built is 52 units to be sold on the open market with no affordability provisions. Another item worth noting for people interested in Albemarle Land Use is something called Business Process Optimization that is underway to update all of the forms through which community members and businesses interact with the county government. “We are an urbanized county now,” Filardo said. “Yes, we have 95 percent of our county is as rural, but the demand for services from our county community really is at a level that is similar to fully urbanized county and in order to accommodate that need for information and the data we need to make good decisions, we must have much better systems.”You can watch the whole discussion at the July 6, 2021 meeting of the Albemarle Planning Commission. You’re listening to Charlottesville Community Engagement.

The consent agenda passed without any changes, meaning the city will move forward on spending $830,000 in American Rescue Plan Act funding to cover the cost of providing $2,400 bonuses to school bus and transit drivers. Charlottesville Mayor Nikuyah Walker wants Council to consider more bonuses for other city employees.“I just want to make sure that we are prioritizing figuring out bonus or incentives for other city employees also,” Walker said. This was the first meeting of Council since three statues erected around a hundred years ago were removed on July 10. City Manager Chip Boyles gave this report.“Things went much quicker and very quieter than we had anticipated but it always better to over prepare and not need it,” Boyles said. “Staff has continued and we will update you as we progress on getting the final resting places for those three statues. We’ll be prioritizing the Lewis, Clark and Sacagawea Statue first.”That statue is currently being stored at the Lewis and Clark Exploratory Center in Darden Towe Park. Boyles also introduced new deputy city manager Sam Sanders, who started work on July 12 after working in Baton Rouge, Louisiana as the head of a neighborhood development corporation. “I’m trying to figure out how he started on the Monday after we had such a busy weekend but we’ll figure that out later,” Boyles said. However, Sanders did not comment. He and fellow Deputy City Manager Ashley Marshall will address the city’s Housing Advisory Committee at their meeting at noon tomorrow. Council’s work session on July 27 will be held on the budget development schedule for fiscal year 2023 as well as the resumption of the creation of a strategic plan. That effort was put on hold at the end of calendar year 2020. At the next regular meeting of the Council, Boyles said the city will have a better idea of how much American Rescue Plan Act funding will be left after a shortfall in the fiscal year 2021 budget is plugged. “Of course we finished the fiscal year on June 30 and we’re starting to get a better understanding of what these funds can or can’t be used for and we’ll present that to you,” Boyles said.I’ll have more from the City Council in the next installment of the program. Other events to catch up with include a recent presentation to the Albemarle County Planning Commission on the redevelopment of the Southwood Mobile Home park. Stay tuned!Before you go!

Barstool Sports Daily News Podcast Support Hard Factor & ‘Pop The Clutch’™ on a Shirt » MERCH: bit.ly/HF-Merch . -------------------- On today's episode... It's WTF Wednesday which means all stories were listener submitted and they are all fucked up: - It turns out the Satanic Temple which was deemed a church in 2019 is taking full advantage of that and The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 to perform religious ceremony abortions exempt from local laws and regulations. - A 19 year old woman in Florida got arrested for DUI in Lee County after she drunkenly smashed her car into another car at 1:30AM last week. Police took her to the hospital to get checked for injuries where she then slipped her handcuffs four times. - Nostradamus was a French doctor, and all around Gloomy guy who claimed he could predict the future in “Quatrains” - which are just 4 line poems. People are reading his poems for 2021 and saying he is predicting a Zombie Apocalypse, and a Famine in 2021. So not bad. - You've all seen the video of the guy in the Circle K in Ohio get absolutely blasted with a Twisted Tea after being a racist dick. We play the video which you can see on our video podcast on youtube and discuss on the pod. - What if I told you that for the right price you could blow up an entire casino in Atlantic City, like push down the stick and watch it implode. So for around 6 years the Trump Plaza hotel and casino has been a vacant eye sore on the Atlantic City boardwalk and the city has plans to demolish it January 29th and the highest bidder gets to push the ignition. Currently the top bid sits at $175,000 and that money is all going to local boys and girls cubs of Atlantic City. - A swan in Germany saw its life long mate fly into electric wires above train tracks and die like Brad Pitt in Deadpool 2 and lost all will to live. It just stopped flying and laid down depressed in the middle of the train tracks. It wouldn’t even move when people tried to shoo it away. The swan caused 23 high speed trains to delay for over an hour. - A father in Sydney Australia that already had a broken arm suffered severe embarrasment after getting punched in the face and knocked out by a kangaroo in front of his family that he was trying to defend. That area of Sydney is now calling for a “Roo-Call” on kangaroos aka a roo cull or killing of kangaroos because they are all scared of catching that smoke. - A Paraguayan soccer player 33 year old Raul Bobadilla got a little carried away after scoring a late second half goal last Wednesday giving his team Club Guarani, a 3-2 lead and eventual win over Libertad. Like most footballers the striker celebrated his goal by removing his shirt in celebration, but he didn't stop there and took his shorts halfway down as well warranting no discipline at the time but in review a three game suspension from the league as someone else in the same league pulled their cock out after scoring earlier this season.

In 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt created the first National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), Pelican Island, off the coast of Florida. Seventy-three years later, the J.N. 'Ding' Darling NWR was established in Lee County, named after the father of the federal duck stamp. Now, there's a battle among Florida waterfowl hunters and developers, with the Florida Wildlife Conservation (FWC) Commission stuck in the middle. FWC has submitted a proposal to change the rule for establishing Restricted Hunting Areas, leading to pushback from hunters like Travis Thompson, host of the Cast and Blast podcast, and a full-time waterfowl guide.
