Recruit to retain: Brock Fisher on the impact of the rental supply crisis, fixing outdated legislation and why things like rent control are not the answer

Brock Fisher has been in real estate for 20 years and has seen plenty of cycles, but says he has never seen a rental crisis like this one, and because it’s taken more than seven years to get here, it probably won’t be solved overnight.

But times of great challenge also bring the opportunity to innovate and lead the competition when it comes to moments that matter in your customer’s world. In this podcast, we unpack some of what’s going on in PM departments around the country, what leaders can do to better support PMs, where to find new talent for growth and much more.

Brock Fisher is the Executive Manager, Industry and Partnerships at Kolmeo, a leading supplier of technology and services to the real estate industry.
