Reed, Mark and Chelsea detail the steps they've been taking to lay the foundation for a successful launch. They even rope their new Upmarket Branding Photographer, Elena Anzaldo into coming on and sharing about her prep for her new role at Upmarket. They also brainstorm how they'll market the new service to the REALTOR clients when they launch it in the fall. In the second half of the show they talk about dealing with difficult clients and Elena shares her wisdom from her time as a REALTOR in regards to how to deal with those difficult agents.

Ep. 55 - Commercial Work Will Grow Your Real Estate Media Business - Road to PMRE 2024 #2.
On this episode, Reed speaks with Matthew Anderson @matthewaphoto, a commercial and architecture photographer based in Kansas City, MO. Matthew has successfully transitioned his business from mainly real estate photography to exclusively working with builders/designers/architects etc. HOLD UP. Matthew is not advocating that everyone needs to abandon REP for higher-end commercial work. He really just wants to talk about the fact that every single successful REP is at some point going to be approached by non-realtor clients, so every REP should at least have a cursory knowledge of the commercial side of the business and how to approach shoots practically and financially. He also dishes on his popular YouTube channel and dishes on some controversial takes he has shared in his videos.Also, OF COURSE, they end the show with their ACTION ITEMS!PMRE 2024, bigger and better than ever, is November 13-15th at Palms Las Vegas.

Ep. 50 - Missing the Mark.
While Mark is off on his big family trip to Australia, everything falls apart at Upmarket Media. Well, not really, but it just feels that way. In this episode, Reed and pinch-hitting co-host, Producer Chelsea, detail life without COO Mark. They get into just the logistical problems that happen as they have to pick up all the tasks that Mark normally does, but they detail how that has actually benefitted the company. That's all well and good, but, ultimately, they'll be happy when Mark is back!In the end, they make it through the episode and with just enough energy left to dish out a couple of Action Items!
