CARLSBAD, Calif.

In this latest exclusive interview, Vince Malta confidently assures the real estate community that “we’re going to survive this, and we’re going to be stronger at the other end as an industry.” For real estate agents, Malta explains that being a voice of value to clients is more important than ever. “REALTORS® will be able to express that value proposition so greatly as they’re guiding people through this post-COVID19.”

Buffini explains that once this crisis passes, pent-up demand will have many real estate professionals covering 12 months of business in nine months of work, so agents should start training now to prepare. He wants the world to know, REALTORS® aren’t going anywhere. We’re here for the long haul. We’re here to serve.”
