S3: Episode 1: “Getting Your House In Order”

There’s nothing like conversing with someone who knows your language, and Charlie is talking about real estate with another agent who loves to live for the deal. Nina Klemm is one of the stars of BRAVO TV’s “Flipping Exes.” This former fashion stylist shares her journey in the industry, from design, construction, and the newest trends in essential home goods. You may be amazed to hear about the differences between the east coast and Midwest real estate markets, but at the heart of it all, these two agents come together to share their unique perspectives about home buying, staging, and even flipping. But make sure your financial house is in order so you can be a bona fide player in this investment game!

S2: Episode 9: “What Size Is Your Toilet?”

Okay…the title may leave you wondering what’s this episode all about, but you may not realize that this is a legitimate question that a lot of people don’t know, much less realize there are different toilet heights.

As technology and design elements improve, there’s never a bad time to step up your bathroom game. In fact, behind kitchens, your bathroom is the number two area that potential buyers will scrutinize to determine if you get that full asking price. Let’s talk about the growing bathroom trends, styles, and yes, toilets, to make sure you’re sitting pretty when you go to the throne.

S2: Episode 8: “New, or Resale”

There are so many options when it comes to the style of home you may want to buy, but you have only two types of purchases – new development or resale.For some, the idea of starting from scratch and building a home from the ground up is intriguing. And then there’s buying what already exists. Sometimes the bones are good, sometimes not so much. We discuss the pros and the cons of new development versus resale, to help you find the best fit for your lifestyle.

S2: Ep. 7 – “The Amazon Effect”

Cities across the nation gave Amazon their best pitch as to why they should build their second headquarters in their town. Who wouldn’t want 50,000 plus new jobs?From tax incentives to promises of new housing and public transportation improvements, Amazon was being wooed like nobody’s business.

The Top 20 cities were whittled down to not one, but two locations — Crystal City, Virginia and Long Island City in Queens, New York.However, in a surprising twist a few months after the announcement, Amazon yanked HQ2 from Queens, leaving many disappointed. I discuss some of the reasons why The Amazon Effect has to be closely scrutinized — sometimes the good a company brings to an area is outweighed by the bad.

S 2: Episode 6: “Real Estate Renaissance”

Have you noticed a lot of development in the city or town where you live? You’ve probably asked yourself, ‘what’s going on’? All across the country, homes, condos and apartment complexes are being built in what feels like rapid fire. A lot of that growth is happening in areas that have seen substantial blight over the years, if not decades. While educational and retail services also improve, some call this growth gentrification — the age-old cycle of pushing the ‘have-nots’ out. I know this is a very emotional subject for a lot of people, but listen to my take on this real estate renaissance, that’s happening whether you like it or not.

S2: Episode 5: “Peak Travel”

My tour of Asia wouldn’t be complete without a stop in Hong Kong filled with skyscrapers that will have you looking up for days!!! I love this urban center with its great shopping, and of course, food! The Dim Sum was some of the best I’ve ever had! From the high-speed rail system to Victoria Peak, this colony in southeastern China must be added to your bucket list. While I traveled with a group, I also got a chance to go it alone, which is important to really unwind and reconnect to your soul. So pack your bag — only one that fits in the overhead bin — and learn why you should spend that checked baggage money on some travel insurance, to experience vacation at the highest level.

S2: Episode 4 – “Are You Ready To Sell?”

The process of selling your house, condo or townhome is more than just finding an agent and putting a “For Sale” sign in your yard. First, you have to do your work!
It starts with asking and answering a few questions about why you’re selling and how aggressive you want to be. But wait, there’s more! From decluttering your home to preparing for the appraisal and inspection, I share my tried and tested tips to get you ready to sell, so you can change the sign to SOLD!

S2 – Ep. 3 – “Real Estate, Ready!”

“If you’re like me, I’ve made a few New Year’s resolutions over my lifetime. However, as I’ve matured, they’ve become less about resolutions and more about creating emotionally, spiritually and financially sound decisions that last for more than a moment, but become part of my ability to love the way I live for a lifetime.

As a lifestyle real estate broker for almost two decades, I know that one of the most lucrative investments that assists you in realizing your financial potential is buying and selling real estate. It not only can be part of your personal wealth building portfolio, but it can pass through the generations. But before we get ready for legacy building, I want to make sure you’re equipped with vital information to make sure you succeed… From saving to the pre-approval process, and how to be ready for the competition.

Let’s get real estate, ready!

S2 – Episode 2: “Good Morning Vietnam!”

When you hear the word “Vietnam,” it’s natural to follow that with the word “war.” It was a controversial political, social, and economic period in the world that still draws much discussion about U.S. involvement. Now, Vietnam is experiencing a renaissance of sorts, offering a cultural and educational journey that not only honors the past, but gives you a rich perspective of how the country is moving forward. This is another destination that touched my soul!
