"Inundated with enquiries" - Ben Cartwright describes the real estate market post-lockdown
The Good You Can Do
If you want to know what's really going on with the real estate market, the best way to find out is to speak to the people at 'the coalface'. The salespeople that are working with buyers and sellers right now. On that note, I set up a Zoom chat with Ben Cartwright, one of Wellington's most sought-after real estate salespeople. In this podcast, we cover: Whether buyers are apprehensive to take action in this new environment. What it's really like viewing houses at alert level 3. Why conditional buyers now have a chance, even if you are subject to sale. Why you will probably actually have a better customer experience than you did pre-Covid-19. Whether to expect a surge of properties coming on the market. How to increase your chances of success as a buyer and as a seller. Useful links Check out Ben's virtual open homes on facebook.

Talking Mental Health with Ben Cartwright (Episode 4)
The Fitted Furniture Makers Podcast
In this special extra podcast I am releasing part of a conversation I had with fellow woodworker Ben Cartwright, recorded prior to the Coronavirus outbreak, when we were talking about mental health. This was soon after media reports had come out about the high quantity of construction industry workers who are affected by this issue. It can be nice just to hear from people in the same line of work who understand and experience the same things. I decided to release it now on the first day since we (in the UK) have been instructed to stop work and stay at home due to the coronavirus outbreak. Please share any feedback on this video at the instagram post here: https://www.instagram.com/p/B-H4h__jVb7/ As explained in the introduction to the video, the full podcast recording of this one is available to members only at my crowdfunding site https://www.buymeacoffee.com/freebird This is because, since these episodes are unscripted, sometimes things get said which I decide might be inappropriate to share publicly, but Ben and I agreed it was fine to share with the membership. The main part of the recording covered the usual standard questions and also lots of interesting information from Ben about his experience in joinery workshops prior to going self employed, and his knowledge of woodworking machinery.

After a long hiatus, I am going to upload several recordings together (Leah Sewell, C. Malcolm Ellsworth, Melissa Sewell, and me), as episodes of the podcast. Leah Sewell is a phenomenally talented poet, editor, and cook. I am sure that these are only a few of her occupations, and that she has many others, also requiring super powers. She is an assistant editor at Coconut Book, and also runs the phenomenal Topeka Writers Workshop. I was honored to take part in the workshop last summer, and met many phenomenal poets and writers in Topeka. These recordings were made at our final reading, at the end of last summer. Leah's book Birth in Storm was recently released from ELJ Publications, and I highly recommend it.
