The Future of Living

Scott Harkins is one of those people you just expect to have all the really cool gadgets you could imagine and the capability to make them all work together. This comes in handy in his role as VP & GM of Resideo Connected Home where he oversees the future of Resideo products and their interoperability within the home. Resideo spun out of Honeywell and recently went public (NYSE: REZI).

The Future of Living

Sarah McMillian, of Temboo, believes historical buildings hold vast amounts of valuable cultural currency. They tell a story not only of the people that built the building but also of the community in which they lived and what they valued. And so preserving historical buildings, in her view, is valuable to our culture and our community. However, connecting these buildings and creating interoperability is challenging, but Temboo has a solution.

The Future of Living

Jeff Wood (@TheOverheadWire) thinks we won't ever have truly autonomous cars and that Apple is stuck in the past. His reasoning is sound, unique, and not what you might expect to hear from anyone in Silicon Valley. Jeff owns and operates The Overhead Wire, a consultancy focused on transit and land use strategies primarily in urban areas.

The Future of Living

We like to end each episode with the "Lightning Round", a series of questions meant to elicit answers off the top of the guests head. In this episode, various guests from the past two years talk about the industries, businesses, and companies they believe are at risk of obsolescence, or at the very least, massive disruption in the next 10 years. In other words, "Who is the next Blockbuster?"

The Future of Living

In the U.S., there are ~45m residential rental units. About 53% or 24m of those rental units are managed by individuals, not institutional property groups. Yet, most of the technology for managing rental properties are built for big, enterprise real estate organizations. Ryan Coon calls those 24m property owners "DIY Landlords," and he believes in them. A DIY landlord himself, Ryan is co-founder & CEO of Avail, a rental property management app created to provide DIY landlords the experience they deserve.

The Future of Living

When it comes to tenant attraction and retention it seems like everyone in the Real Estate industry is trying to one-up each other. An "Amenities Arms Race," some might say. Logan Nagel (@Logan_W_Nagel, TW) has witnessed much of this race first as an analyst and now as Associate Publisher at Propmodo.com. Nagel believes strongly and has witnessed first hand, the value brought to a building when a tenant's experience is carefully curated and optimized.

The Future of Living

Downtown stadiums are special. There's something inexplicably enjoyable about leaving work and walking to a ballgame. This experience becomes magical when after the game you can walk home. As a baseball reporter and analyst, Joel Goldberg has traveled to almost every baseball stadium in the United States. He’s seen more than his fair share of downtown stadiums and hotels and as both a professional and a traveler, he has a unique perspective on what makes these types of properties memorable and enjoyable.

Elizabeth Glynn is passionate about what is happening in Indian Country here in America. Most Americans are simply unaware of what life is like in Indian Country and America has failed to invest as it should in these communities. As CEO of Travois, Glynn oversees more than $1.4 billion in financing for affordable housing and economic development in Indian Country. More than $700 million of that is private investor equity.

Travois was started in 1995 by Elizabeth's father, David W. Bland. He named the company Travois in homage to the set of poles that Plains Indians tied together to carry valuable things across rough terrain. It should come as no surprise that the company motto is, You know where you want to go; let us pull some of the weight for you.

In this conversation, Blake and Elizabeth discuss:

  • Why Indian Country lacks basic infrastructure.
  • How bringing broadband to Native American communities is literally saving lives.
  • Opportunities to real estate investors and developers, and tech companies to partner with tribal communities for impact and profit.

Learn more about Travois and the fantastic work they are doing throughout America at travois.com. You'll find them on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook with the username: @travoiskc. You can find Elizabeth on LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/in/glynnelizabeth.
