Buckle up for this one, because Alex Doubet is going to drop some wisdom bombs on us all. He's the founder and CEO of Door.com, a flat-fee brokerage based in Dallas, TX that is on a mission to help home-owners keep more when they sell. In this interview, Alex details how a simple thank you note (or should I say the lack of one) was the catalyst to starting Door, how culture impacts the growth of a company, and it's both good for the consumer and challenging to run a real estate brokerage, title company, and mortgage brokerage--all at once. Of course, we get into some industry banter and yes you will hear some complaints in here about how the average real estate agent is working (or not working) these days. Listen in!
Do not pass up on this episode! If you have zero interest or knowledge in blockchain, (which the more I dig into it, the more I realize I'm not alone in my ignorance) that won't matter. Natalia is one of the brightest in the biz and you'll hear us discuss her company, Propy, and how they're leveraging blockchain as part of their solution to removing friction in the transaction process for residential real estate. One of the selling points that grabbed my attention, is that if I'm using Propy, I don't need to know how to do anything with blockchain. That is really important if you want to gain adoption, in my opinion. We also talk about the market size potential for Propy and it's a doozy! Lastly, you'll hear me rant and rave about their product explainer video. I can't quite articulate why I love it so much, but I did. Check the show notes if you want to watch it.
