In our first TRD Talks Live episode, brokerage chiefs came together to discuss running their businesses during unprecedented circumstances. Tonight, we’ll hear from the folks who make the deals happen: the agents. At 5 p.m., TRD Talks Live will feature three top agents explaining how they and their teams are adjusting to the new rules of residential real estate.

TRD reporter Erin Hudson will be joined by Lisa K. Lippman, the top producing broker at Brown Harris Stevens in 2016, 2017, and 2018; John Gomes, co-founder of Elliman’s Eklund|Gomes Team; and Leonard Steinberg, Compass’ Chief Evangelist, who leads his eponymous team.

Steinberg recently called for a two-week ban on showings, saying it was “a moral obligation.” Brokerage chiefs disagreed in our first TRD Talk, with BHS chief Bess Freedman saying, “he should stay in his lane and not preach to us.”

“We have the data and science that clearly shows abstaining from contact is best. That is what we as an industry should be advising. That is called leadership,” Steinberg fired back in the comments.

Register here to see what the city’s leading brokers have to say.
