Real Realtors 026 | The Birthday Episode

Happy Birthday Marc!                

Today’s episode of Real Realtors puts the City of Oakland in the spotlight. Our panel is Davide Pio and Ron Baniqued, both of whom I work with here at Baniqued Commercial Real Estate. We focus on two major issues that Oakland is dealing with: Rent Control Exemptions, and the future of the Coliseum Site. We also take a look at real estate investing and discuss strategies to use when deciding whether or not to invest in a property to flip. Enjoy.
