Real Realtors 010 | Alex Lopez and Rachael Hand

Today on Real Realtors, I talked with I had a chance to catch up with Alex Lopez, who is set to close 15 properties this year, and Rachael Hand, who is the incoming president-elect for the Contra Costa Association of Realtors. We talked about their involvement in real estate, some tips they had for other agents, as well as diving into Props 60 and 90 and their impact on housing. We also touched on the current GOP Tax Plan and how it might affect the California housing market, and finished with a little Thanksgiving foods preview. This was a very engaging episode, and I think there is a lot to be gained from it.
