Join Steve Valentine and Bernie Espinosa for #thinkingOTB... a real estate industry podcast about finding creative solutions for every real estate transaction that puts the people over profit (and makes a lot of profit in the process). Although Steve and Bernie collectively bring more than 3 decades of experience real estate, they are anything but traditional. If you're ready to level up your business and create a meaningful career in any aspect of real estate, this one's for you.
 
Interviews from the best and brightest minds in the real estate industry. We interview and highlight those bright minds that aren't always seen on stage because. We cover topics like Investing, listings, buyers, brokerage, technology, entrepreneurship and so much more. Brought to you by KevinandFred.com
