In episode #21, Ludwina Dautovic and David Webb talk about how Homely captures the stories of our streets.
Welcome to The Room Xchange Podcast. I’m Ludwina Dautovic and today I have the pleasure of speaking with David Webb, Head of Industry for Homely.com.au.
With 14 years’ experience across sales, property management, as a business owner and as an agency supplier, David brings a breadth of knowledge to his work while also seeking to anticipate the demands of an ever-changing real estate industry.
It's wonderful to hear about innovative and disruptive platforms generating value for the real estate industry. Homely's street reviews are capturing the best of our neighbourhoods by giving residents the opportunity to tell the stories of their streets.
Every street has a story. We give residents the opportunity to share those stories so potential new residents can know the vibe of the street - David Webb
When will we start seeing house-sharing references as having the same value as a tenancy references? Ludwina Dautovic
