Episode 71 - Investing in Real Estate During a Pandemic w/ The Real Estate Empresses

The Real Estate Empresses are Sarah Larbi, Gabrielle Campbell, Jenn Richter, Jessica-Ann Buchta. This podcast was recorded in May, & while they were speculating about what might happen in the market due to the current situation, a lot of it has come true.

They discussed how they have shifted their investments since the pandemic began; also about whether a second wave would happen & its effects; censorship; the narrative that the mainstream media is telling; how to pandemic proof your life!
