How will Tesla impact the future of Austin real estate? According to Matt Holm, one of the city’s top 10 Realtors for four years running, the effect that Jeff Bezos had in Seattle will be dwarfed by what Elon Musk does for Austin. On today’s podcast, Matt discusses the Tesla Gigafactory in Texas and the incredible appreciation Austin property owners have experienced since it broke ground. Matt also shares how he’s able to hit rockstar-level real estate sales without being a salesman, why he doesn’t believe in scripts, and what he thinks is best when balancing business between buyers and sellers.
