One of my favorite interviews this year! Host Chris Stafford pecked my brain during his show for entrepreneurs called Massive Abundance. What mistake did I make with Yelp!? If I were new agent with just $1000, what would I do? And more secrets to my success!
Chris also speaks around the country like me, so it meant a lot to me that he writes:
I interviewed the "entertainer" Realtor, Herman Chan. Man, this guy is filled with so much energy and enthusiasm.

Congrats to my Interior Decorator friend Paisley for her 1 year anniversary of her radio show At Home With Paisley w/ co-host Krisztina Bell!
Yours truly called in to just wish her well but Paisley put me on the hot seat and asked me for my real estate predictions for 2014! (Micro-units, housing growth in 2nd tier cities, suburban goes urban & more!)
I come into the show around 15 min in. Listen here!
I started Habitat For Hermanity as a videoblog years ago, so I love sharing how video is not only a great brand builder for agents but it's what consumers expect now! 73% of consumers say they prefer agents who use video. Shocker: Only 1 in 10 agents have a youtube account!

1. What does it take to make yourself stand out among other real estate brokers?
2. You seem to be interested and are knowledgeable in so many areas besides real estate, brokerage, including interior decoration, TV entertainment, restaurant recommendations, just to name a few. What are you most interested in and why?
3. Do you think home prices are over-priced in the Bay Area?
4. How long do you think this hot trend will last in the San Francisco Bay Area?
5. Since this is a seller’s market, do you recommend perhaps older people sell their homes, make some money, and buy a home elsewhere to live, or people whose job situation isn’t so secure to sell their home while the market is hot?
6. Besides high rental prices, lower mortgage rates, loosened credit history review, demand from some overseas investors, and perhaps a slight economic recovery in certain sectors, what’s driving such a craze all of a sudden?
7. If people would like to get in touch with you for advice on anything, how should they contact you?

Kindred spirit Kelly Mitchell interviews me on her super duper popular show Agent Caffeine! Click here for the podcast!
"This episode of Agent Caffeine takes us to the land of Hermanity. High fashion, good humor and a funtastic diva rolled into one. We talk about going from blah to delish and being true to you. Herman Chan has built an incredible persona. He’s created opportunities from many different channels including, MTV, HGTV, Huffington Post and the San Francisco Chronicle. Herman’s also a hot speaking commodity. You get the authentic nature of his spirit by the fun he has describing what he does as well as his self-deprecating nature. Chan is a superstar in his own right. Truly a refreshing spin out of the land of vanilla-mess and into the land of sparkling individuality. If you need inspiration on being yourself and embracing your true authentic brand, Herman has wise words of advice for you". - Kelly Mitchell

Did ya catch me on KGO Newstalk 810 AM, San Francisco today? They asked me about how crazy the San Francisco market has gotten. My segment was boiled down to about a minute. Listen from 31:50 to 32:50. Enjoy!
I had a great time chatting with radio host Brenton Hayden, dubbed by Entrepreneur Magazine as Top 5 Entrepreneur of 2010. He also went to Harvard and MIT. Unlike me, he ain't no dumb dumb! If you missed me on KFAN radio this weekend, catch my interview here! (3:15-32:22). The Real Estate Coaches & I discuss challenges of the rental market, average sales price in SF and why photos & floorplans are so important in marketing properties (duh, people are visual creatures!).
The charming & knowledgeable Radio Talk Show Host & Mortgage Consultant Peter Padilla had me on his show Nevada Real Estate Radio KKFT 99.1fm. We talked San Francisco vs Nevada market, commercial real estate, and reading the tea leaves for the future.

Wow! That hour just flew by! What a blast being interviewed by Priscilla Leona, host of entertainment talk show Question Reality! With past celeb guests like pop star Ari Gold & Project Runway's Jack Mackenroth it's no wonder there is 6 month wait list for her show.
In our informative & campy chat, we discuss the real estate & entertainment industries:
*Will Herman be the next host for Property Virgins on HGTV?
*Are the agents on Bravo's Million Dollar Listing any better than us normal agents?
*If you're an actor/model, can you juggle a real estate career part time?
Listen to the full interview here! Did you learn anything? LMK!
I just got off the air with the one and only Mother Love! She is everything that I aspire to be: smart, caring & sassy. With both our larger than life personalities, we had the most stupendous time. That hour just zipped by! I hope her audience not only got a kick out of me but learned a few things about the real estate biz too.
Mother Love grilled me about anal retentive agents, real estate TV shows, McMansions & why I started my videoblog. She also reveals her pet peeve when she was shopping for a home too!
After the show, I got a message from a listener: "Thank you for discussing real estate in a funny accessible way!" What can I say, it's my schtick.
My favorite excerpt:
Mother Love: Where do you see yourself in 10 yrs?
Hermanity: Married with children! j/k.... I'll have my own TV Show
