Generation next: Matt and Luke Lahood

After a career that has encompassed more than 30 years in the industry, The Agency CEO Matt Lahood is well-known for his leadership skills and words of wisdom.

What might be a little less well-known, is that Matt’s son Luke also shares a passion for real estate and is currently a leasing partner with The Agency’s Eastern Suburbs and Inner West branches in Sydney.

Luke brings with him an IT skillset that has proved invaluable to The Agency during COVID-19. But as Matt reflects, that’s just one of the many exciting innovations the next generation of real estate professionals brings to the landscape.

In this episode of the Elevate Podcast, Matt and Luke Lahood discuss family, how the younger generation helped the industry adapt to the changes of COVID-19 and why this Christmas will be a very different real estate event.
