Show notes

For The Home Run Podcast’s very first episode, I am taking you to a one-on-one interview with Mario Mazzeo, a real estate agent from Sydney. A real estate agent is one of the most common people you will meet when looking for a home, and I really think that getting to know who they are and what they do, is where our podcast should start.

It will be very helpful for first home buyers like you, to know how you can take as much learning and information from licenced professionals like Mario as many of them have been in the industry for so many years already or are backed by companies who are industry giants.

While many see them as agents who work for the best interest of the seller only, we cannot deny the value of the support that they give to first home buyers when it comes to the wealth of tips and advice that they readily share in order to make your buying experience worthwhile and less stressful.

And speaking of tips, Mario was able to share lots in this 24-minute episode. We have covered tips applicable to a private sale, auction, choosing a home, final inspection, and some overall guidelines to help you become a smart and confident first home buyer.
