Welcome to another edition of PowerTalk. I’m your host Chris Versace, editor of the investment newsletter PowerTrend Profits and portfolio manager of the Thematic Growth Portfolio at Fabian Wealth Strategies, and these are my one-on-one conversations with the movers and shakers in the business world that take you behind the scenes and in the know. Be sure to check out ChrisVersace.com for more on PowerTrends and past editions of PowerTalk, as well as FabianWealth.com for more on my Thematic Growth Portfolio.

Joining us this week is Dan Duffy, chairman and CEO of United Real Estate. We talk not only about why Dan is bullish on the housing market for the next 12-18 months, but how he and United Real Estate are using technology to transform the consumer experience and drive costs down, which is good not only for the company and its customers, but its agents as well.

With a strategy that is good for the customer and the agent, it’s no wonder that United Real Estate is growing by leaps and bounds in terms of markets served, number of agents and transaction volume.

Even so, Chairman and CEO Dan Duffy says they’re just getting underway. Is Dan worried about the recent winter weather and its short-term impact on the housing market? As you’ll soon hear, his answer is “not at all.”
