We talk about the boots on the ground often on the pod, it's about time we bring one of those guys on to give his take on tech. This week, NYC Developer & Lender, Eric Brody, sits down with a real bonafide construction professional in the field, CNY Group's Senior Project Superintendent, Eugene Cernyak. We met on a job site and I knew immediately he was the future. He studied Construction Management at NYU and is currently on site managing construction on an iconic building in Greenwich Village. Needless to say, this guy knows his stuff. We answer burning questions and provide key insights for technologists and users alike.

Being a guest? Joining the investment fund? Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org About Real Tech Talk: Leading developer, investor and native New Yorker, Eric Brody, bridges the gap between technologists and PropTech by having no nonsense, frank conversations with the minds behind some of the hottest new PropTech innovations. As someone with skin in the game on both sides of the deal, Brody invites the folks behind technologies he genuinely finds interesting to come present their product. The question is - do these new players actually make an impact in the real world of construction? Someone needs to bring the big ideas down to the ground level and determine how they will actually change the experience, if at all. Having raised over $2 million and counting for a PropTech investment fund himself, Eric Brody is tapped into this burgeoning scene with a unique, necessary perspective.
In this week's episode of the Propcast, Louisa is joined by Emanuel Heisenberg, CEO and Founder of EcoWorks, and Mauricio Weiss, GP and Founding Partner of Zacua Ventures where they discuss all things renovation, regulation and innovation. With 40% of emissions being used on buildings and 20% on materials, the guests delve into the short- and long-term costs of going carbon neutral and whether it is a realistic goal with today's current economic climate. The guests discuss how an increase in sustainability pressure, paired with geopolitical instability and labour scarcity are a handful of the challenges that accompany reaching net zero targets. Emanuel shares how the EcoWork's product can help tackle key issues around scarcity of labour and materials from factories, whilst Mauricio discusses the trends he has seen with his portfolio companies in terms of increasing their sales. Companies mentioned MIPIM JLL Spark Shoutouts Vivin Hegde Arnaud Bouzinac Robert Habeck Josh Levy, Document Crunch Previous episodes mentioned The evolution of global construction technologies Episode Highlights Regulation is actually pushing for a lot of technology adoption in terms of higher requirements, and these requirements just make the processes much more complex, right? - Mauricio So they really tackle the 80 percent renewable energy goal for 2030 and they really decarbonize the heating system with good and aggressive regulations. - Emanuel The construction sector invests 1 percent in R&D and the housing sector 0.1%. So, they will not bring any transformation towards affordability and decarbonization. - Emanuel You do need regulators – to start pointing the marketing to the right direction, but you also want to keep competitiveness and ensure a free environment and a secure environment to make investments and to see the return of these investments. - Mauricio Investors and a lot of stakeholders are questioning whether this is the right moment to be investing in technologies or an economic turn that will potentially slow down the piece of adoption for technology - Mauricio Previous episodes mentioned The Evolution Of Global Construction Technologies Key Takeaways The use of circular building materials in helping companies reach net zero targets The need for common standards across Europe, as well as the challenges that this would bring due to difference in buildings and needs for each country The need for regulators to be very close to investors in sharing short term and long-term goals of decarbonisation and technology adoption How to position certain aspects of ESG to pitch to create sustainable competitive advantage for that company without changing the core of your business Emmanuel shares some advice about the German market for founders looking to expand The lack of construction companies in Germany About our guests Emanuel Heisenberg Emanuel Heisenberg studied history and economics in Munich and Cambridge. He has over 15 years of experience in setting up and developing companies for renewable energies and ESCO and has contributed to more than 50 energy projects. His international network includes numerous funds, utility companies, IPPs, entrepreneurs, and research institutions. After founding a contracting and geothermal energy company, he established ecoworks in 2019, introducing the concept of serial renovation to Germany. An initial pilot project in Hameln proved challenging but was also a significant success. The renovated buildings there have demonstrably achieved NetZero levels. In addition to his role as CEO and founder, he is also active as a speaker and expert in energy and climate policy, advising the German federal government, companies, and private equity funds in the fields of heating and energy efficiency. In 2020, together with journalist Georg Diez, he co-wrote a book on the significance of technology in reinventing democracy (Power To The People: How We Reinvent Democracy with Technology). Ecoworks ecoworks develops end-to-end software and prefabricated elements to turn apartment buildings with significant renovation backlog into attractive and climate-neutral living spaces in just a few weeks. In this way, the company is making a significant contribution to rapidly reducing emissions in the building sector and the dependence on fossil fuels. ecoworks is an innovation leader in a market that will unleash enormous investment volumes in the wake of national and European legislative initiatives and rising energy and CO2 prices. Around 45 million residential units in Europe are located in buildings with the worst energy ratings. In addition to regulation, these will be particularly burdened by high CO2 prices, which will become mandatory for the building sector soon. Comparable regulations are already planned or in effect in parts of the US and Asia. The Berlin-based company developed the technology in Germany and is currently bringing it to the mass market with several projects. The company is considered one of the most innovative providers of Climate Tech in the building sector worldwide. Mauricio Weiss Mauricio is GP and Founding Partner of Zacua Ventures, a global Venture Capital fund focused in the construction industry. Mauricio works closely with entrepreneurs in the industry to support the adoption of new technologies and improve productivity and sustainability on construction projects. His background working in a large construction company first and at the CVC of Cemex later taught him what is needed for a successful implementation of technology and the right approach for startups engaging large corporates. Zacua Ventures Zacua Ventures is an early stage fund focused on the Built Environment. With three GPs based in San Francisco, Madrid and Singapore, the fund has a global focus and each of the founders come with a proven track record, having led 30+ investments in the corporate funds in Cemex Ventures and HILTI. The fund has raise over $55m USD, to invest in Pre-Seed to Series A startups that focus on 3 main areas in the construction industry: Sustainability, Enhanced Productivity & Safety and Urbanization Solutions. About Our Host Louisa is the Co-Founder of LMRE, which has rapidly become the market-leading global built environment recruitment platform and search consultancy, specializing in finding the best strategic talent for the most innovative organisations in PropTech, ConTech, Smart Buildings, ESG, Sustainability and Strategic Consulting with operations across North America, United Kingdom, Europe, Asia-Pacific and MENA.

A listing-based business is a lot more profitable than a buyer-based one, but it's also harder to grow and scale. Generating seller leads isn't as simple as purchasing a list of buyers. It takes strategy and intentionality to turn a homeowner into someone who's ready to list. Driving listings is a lot harder than holding an open house, but not impossible. When we build a rich database of homeowners, incubate them and provide value, seller lead gen becomes predictable. How can we see the opportunities sitting in our databases? How do we put intentionality behind our database nurture? In this episode, I'm joined by Ryan Young, a real estate team leader and founder of real estate platform, Fello. He shares how his tool is helping agents put more value into their database and extract more business out of it. Our industry is lopsided on how we position and build our businesses. It's very buyer-based. -Ryan Young Three Things You'll Learn In This Episode -Put the data into database Some agents have thousands of names in their database, but they don't know much beyond that. What information is vital to the success of our lead nurture and conversion? -Don't get out-scripted by the seller How does Fello help us increase conversion by showing us where we went wrong in the follow up process? -Never cold call again How do we level up the quality of the list of people we call? Guest Bio Ryan Young is the CEO of Fello and the CEO of the Young Team, named by Real Trends and The Wall Street Journal as one of the top 250 teams In the country. As an agent from a family of agents, Ryan has always seen the importance of people in real estate. Through his experience building the #1 team in Ohio and the 18th team in the U.S. (WSJ RealTrends), Ryan built a guaranteed offer platform to rapidly expand and help his agents thrive. Yet, aware of the many PropTech companies that are competing with agents, Ryan saw an opportunity to build something bigger. A platform that solves real challenges for all agents. Leveraging feedback from top teams across the country, Fello was created, the most powerful lead-generation tool in real estate. Since then, Ryan has made it his personal mission to empower all agents with the tools and technology that has empowered his team's success. So agents can stay where they belong, at the center of every transaction. Go to https://hifello.com/ for more information, and get $300 off your onboarding.
