However, you’ve probably met the same issue: nowadays, everyone (and their granny) has a podcast. Sifting through all the chaff to find the right ones will eat up all that time you’re trying to save, not to mention the frustration of listening to bad advice.

Even better, we’ve compiled a list of 9 recommendations to which you can subscribe in order to get the highest quality info in the industry. We’ve also included a few recommended episodes from each show to help you board the train as quickly as possible.

Michael Yardney’s Property Update has been in the business for quite some time (from 2001, really). That’s a lot of years and experience under his belt. It’s not surprising, then, that his podcast is quite popular with real estate agents in Australia and New Zealand.

Coach Tom Ferry and Tom Ferry Show
Finally, we have coach Tom Ferry’s Tom Ferry Podcast and Tom Ferry Show. The first is a proper podcast, while the latter is a video show on YouTube.

What characterizes his approach to property management is that he’s a resolute supporter of the human touch in all real estate agents do. This can be in-person (or now video) communication, overcommunicating, being candid and fact-driven, and making sure your clients know what’s going on with you.
