Episode 129 | Robots in Real Estate: Friend or Foe? – Chat with Nigel Dalton, Chief Inventor at REA Group

Disclaimer: This is Beyond Mind-blowing. 😉

Think technology. Think crazy. Think sci-fi films, actually. Yep. This podcast is futuristic—except, all this crazy tech stuff is happening in a future arriving sooner than you think (we were shocked too when we found out)!

To tell us all about it (and to bewilder us), Nigel Dalton—one with the coolest title going around—Chief Inventor at realestate.com.au (REA)—literally awes the couch. With 25+ years’ experience in IT, Nigel co-founded Luna Tractor, which is responsible for discovering the crème de la crème in the digital space and bringing these phenomenal developments to the Australian property market.

You will laugh as Bryce and Ben turn The Property Couch into a virtual 3D house inspection, looking seriously ridiculous in “extended reality” headsets!

This mind-blowing podcast includes:

  • How the property industry will benefit from robots, drones, avatars and reality-altering headwear
  • Is technology a friend or your foe?
  • The “human” side of technology and whether or not you’ll lose your job to a robot (seriously)
  • The social implications of technology and the boundaries that shouldn’t be pushed
  • Where big data are being collected, how it’s analysed and when will it start changing our day-to-day tasks
  • How technology will potentially outsmart a lazy real estate agent
  • The trends happening in property, asset selection and the beginnings of a massive change in the industry
  • How many years (!) it will take until we live and work in a virtual reality (prepare yourself)
  • Trialing the Microsoft HoloLens … and why the groundbreaking “virtual reality” headwear will be the next hit
  • How to “air tap” or simply look at a wall to enter a house (we’re not kidding)
  • The global competition in real estate and the digital space
  • How to “dream build”
  • BREAKING NEWS: Will iPhone’s Suri will be able pick your investment property for you!

 

In Nigel’s own words, it’s:

“The cutting edge in what’s crazy.”

 

Do yourselves a favour, guys. This one is next-level.

Episode 128 | How a Country Boy Went From a Butcher to Property Success – Chat with Duncan McPherson, Director of Nelson Alexander

That’s right guys. Duncan McPherson, Director at Nelson Alexander (also a successful property consultant, auctioneer, founder of Nelson Alexander Charitable Foundation and a property investor himself) started his roots in a small country town as, well, a butcher. Yep—his story is absolutely a white-butcher’s-coat to wealth-building-creation!

Duncan is a family man, centred on honest and committed customer service, who has built his riches on sharing what he knows and paying it forward, giving almost $2.5 million dollars to local charities in the process.

On the couch to share his wisdom, humbleness and good humour with the boys, Duncan explains:

  • How he came to Melbourne as a butcher and ended up as highly-successful real estate figure
  • Why one man in a black BMW, a shiny suit and a bad attitude was likely the catalysis for his career change
  • How Nelson Alexander, since 1971, has transformed the face of real estate services, especially in the Northern suburbs
  • How he approaches property investment with 20+ years’ experience
  • What are his criteria for a successful asset selection?
  • Which one is a “better” investment: a house or a townhouse?
  • What “buying land and airspace” means and how you can value from it
  • What is “The Beef Wellington” to add value to your property?
  • What to look for in a quality real estate agent and how to outsmart them
  • How many off-market properties exist without you even knowing they’re For Sale? (Hint: it’s more than you think!)
  • The inevitability of housing affordability—has it always been tough breaking into the market?
  • When will he consider buying a property with someone else?
  • What he looks for in an investment property and what always impresses him
  • The mentors who have changed and continue to change his life.

 

We really, really think you’ll benefit from this one guys. It’s one thing to hear tips from the best in the business; but another thing entirely to hear it from someone who made it there from the humblest of beginnings!
