Eddie Shapiro, CEO of NestSeekers, sits down with me to discuss how he has built a global company that is expanding into multi-media and marketing arenas. He shares the lessons of his 26-year career.

More About Eddie Shapiro: 

With over two decades of experience in every aspect of the real estate industry Mr. Shapiro continues to lead Nest Seekers on its journey to expand and innovate the brokerage business on a global scale.

Mr. Shapiro began his career in the early 90's as an agent at a small firm in midtown Manhattan. He has since become a self-made successful and adventurous entrepreneur. His resume includes completing development and construction of buildings and investment projects in every market his brokerage operates exceeding well over a million square feet. His multi faceted experience includes developing real estate technologies, hospitality management, innovating branding and marketing concepts and most importantly identifying and pioneering the syncing of major multi markets approach in the real estate brokerage business; hence expending and connecting his firm between New York, New Jersey, The Hamptons, South Florida, Los Angeles, London, Asia and soon to be other coinciding markets. This strategy along with innovative marketing concepts has become an aspiration of every other major firm in the nation.

Always at the forefront are Mr. Shapiro’s core principals of ethics, integrity, loyalty, education, ingenuity and courage by which he continues to lead and disrupt industries with his growing and always expanding team of like-minded individuals.

Very much like every successful story, independence and do it yourself spirit has always been another core driver in his strategy. Today Nest Seekers develops websites, brand marketing campaigns and strategies for its sellers and developers. It publishes magazines and materials unlike any other firm. It is independently responsible for its exclusive internal and external technologies, training programs and various other tools and resources developed and operated in house.

After a decade of guest appearances and participation in some of the most viewed real estate shows and industry and new platforms, Mr. Shapiro has recently launched Nest Media with a number of shows and programs already in development on the worlds leading streaming and broadcast networks.

On August 26 2020, the much anticipated Million Dollar Beach House aired it’s first season on Netflix. Mr. Shapiro is an Executive Producer on the show and continue to serve and drive the project forward.

Mr. Shapiro is a proud father of three very talented and driven children and a devoted husband and family man.

Under the direction of Mr. Shapiro Nest Seekers is on path to expending its roster to over 1000 agents and management staff and over 20 offices and storefront location as it continues its journey to solidify itself as a unique global luxury brand in the fascinating world of real estate.

Jay & Ashley Nelson, ”Results are a compound effect of great action”, Real Estate Advisors & Team Leaders at eXp Realty on Global Luxury Real Estate Mastermind with Michael Valdes Podcast #220

Jay & Ashley Nelson, "Results are a compound effect of great action", Real Estate Advisors & Team Leaders at eXp Realty, shares their story on Global Luxury Real Estate Mastermind with Michael Valdes Podcast #220

Jay & Ashley Nelson have decades of real estate experience between them. The Nelsons were ReMax owners, and Ashley's family owned a Century 21 franchise when she was growing up. The passion and deviation they feel for the agents in their organization are heartfelt. They genuinely want their success before everything else, and it shows. The lessons they learned throughout their career are powerful, and they candidly share their story in this interview.

More About Jay & Ashley Nelson:
Nashville’s Jay and Ashley Nelson knew the good, the bad and the ugly of being broker-owners. The Nelson’s owned a RE/MAX franchise and Ashley’s grandparents owned a Century 21 franchise, so they were deeply knowledgeable. When a friend, who was a brand-new agent, insisted they watch a video on eXp Realty, Jay told him, “We love you, but there is nothing you can show me in real estate that I probably haven’t already wasted a million dollars on.”  Somehow, Jay and Ashley relented, watched the video and were stunned. 

“We paused the video halfway through and said to each other, ‘We are leaving RE/MAX and doing this!’ We filled the application out that very night,” said Ashley. “We were able to come to such a quick decision because eXp Realty solved the challenges of owning our own brokerage and allowed us to do all of the things we love about owning our own brokerage and be able to do it on a global scale!”

The couple joined eXp in May 2017. 

Jay and Ashley reconnected as adults in Nashville where Jay was an aspiring country singer and Ashley a business director with the Paul Mitchell Schools brand. They got into real estate in 1999 with a small mom-and-pop agency, learning the ropes. And still, to this day, are actively selling real estate.

“We just love it,” said Jay. “People get sick of it because they don’t make it part of who they are. If you care about the process and the people, it’s very inspiring. It’s a big deal for people to buy a house. Everyone is different, but it is rewarding when you come across someone who is appreciative. When we are selling houses, the client is our friend and stays our friend.”

Like many real estate professionals, the 2008 housing crash hurt them badly. “I had 122 townhomes in default. I went down pretty hard,” said Jay. “I learned a lot. I learned what I won’t do again. But I believe you’re never failing, you’re just learning.” Ashley agreed. “You define yourself when you’re on the bottom and on the top.  How are you going to behave in both situations?”

The two weathered the storm and have reached a comfortable lifestyle, selling real estate, coaching agents, and enjoying their five adult children and first grandchild.

Gail DeMarco, "Death, Divorce, Downsizing", Broker Associate at Turner DeMarco powered by eXp Realty, shares her story on Global Luxury Real Estate Mastermind with Michael Valdes Podcast #216

Gail DeMarco is one of the top agents in the state of California. She came into the business after having a motorcycle accident which did not allow her to pursue her profession at the time of a highly sought-after commercial and wedding photographer. However, when she first came into the business, she realized her skill set of seeing things others missed made her incredibly successful. She has become a great friend, and she shares incredible wisdom in this episode.

More About Gail DeMarco: 

Empathy. Experience. Connectedness. Commitment: Gail's clients know that her greatest strengths lead to their windfall during real estate decision-making. A #1 ranked agent in El Dorado County with roots in the Bay Area, Gail is known for her creative solutions to real estate's puzzles.

It’s one thing to be awed by Gail’s marketing and negotiating skills or by her suite of pre-listing services that result in shorter market times and higher sale prices. At least as meaningful is Gail’s deep grasp of what drives real estate success in El Dorado County.

Having begun her luxury real estate career in the Bay Area’s Palo Alto before relocating to El Dorado Hills in 2015, Gail understands, firsthand, the particular factors motivating buyers in El Dorado County.

And when she partnered with Val Turner in 2018, Gail and the entire market quickly realized how the team’s combined expertise puts each of their clients in a position of strength. Through the partnership,  the team gained Val’s marketing communications expertise and her knowledge of working with investors.

When people speak with Gail’s clients and meet her industry partners, they are reminded how important it is to work with an experienced, connected agent who thoroughly understands the nuances of the local market.

Gail’s consistently high rankings indicate far more than her production volume. Being the #1 team in El Dorado County, with Gail as #1 ReMax agent in the region, reflects the fact that Gail is consistently embedded in the market. She has developed and earned the respect of industry partners and tradespeople who know that her expertise, efficiency, connections, and service-minded approach translate into results. And she shares her network and knowledge with the clients she represents.

When you start working with Gail, she will be in touch regularly, often answering questions before you think of them. She gives you the reasons for every suggestion she makes and devotes herself to ensuring that everyone always knows where things stand. There are no surprises on timeline or on what to expect in the days and weeks to come.

In addition, each member of The Turner-DeMarco team not only has their clients’ backs, but they support one another in exceeding every client’s needs and expectations. That means that, when working with Gail, you have access not only to her knowledge, expertise and connections, but to the resources and knowledge of her entire team.

It means that, when something comes up, you’ll receive immediate feedback and sound choices about how to address the decision-making process.

And it means that, when you’re ready to move to the next chapter in your story, Gail is ready to listen, learn and exceed your needs.

*Ranked as the #1 RE/MAX Gold agent in Greater Sacramento, Gail DeMarco-Bolger closed over 100 transactions in 2020 for a total of $85 million in sales.

More About Patrick Kinsel:

"I'm the Founder/CEO of Notarize, the first company making it possible to legally notarize documents online and on demand. We’re a company of firsts. We completed the country’s first-ever online real estate closing and now make it possible for anyone to click to buy, sell, or finance their home online. We also executed the country’s first-ever online will and have digitized how people finance their business, assign power of attorney, purchase and finance a vehicle, open a bank account, and complete countless other transactions online for the first time. We’ve changed numerous federal and state policies, have won many first-of-their-kind regulatory and commercial approvals, and have now worked to pass 35+ state laws enabling many of America’s largest industries to enter the digital age. 

I’m also a Partner in the venture capital firm Polaris Partners where I spend my time building and investing in new technology companies. I led Series A & B financings in Lob and Drizly (acquired by Uber for $1.1B) and serve(d) on the boards of both companies.

I've built products across a wide range of industries, including search, social, productivity, legal, finance, and real estate. I previously co-founded Spindle, a company I led as CEO from December 2010 until it was acquired by Twitter in June 2013. Spindle developed patented search technology to generate topical, algorithmic timelines from Facebook and Twitter content. Prior to Spindle, I was at Microsoft incubating new concepts and bringing them to market. I led the development of Docs.com. Launched by Mark Zuckerberg at F8 in 2010, Docs.com was a collaboration with Facebook to bring Microsoft Office Online to the Facebook audience. Before Docs.com, I helped to launch Bing Social Search in October 2009. Prior to Microsoft, I tried to start several companies with varying degrees of success. 

I live in Boston and am committed to helping the entrepreneurial community, but have been amazed by my experiences visiting 35+ states for Notarize and believe the opportunities of the digital economy exist in every corner of America. 

I'm an eighth generation Californian and visit San Francisco often."
