Leigh Brown: Crazy Shit In Real Estate Podcast

Podcast: Crazy Sh*t In Real Estate TM

Crazy Shit In Real Estate

Summary:

There’s nothing like starting the morning off right with beer, cigarettes, and an episode (or ten) of Jerry Springer! Sean Carpenter, a speaker, educator,  trainer, and REALTOR®  of 21 years never knew the winning morning routine – until he had his very first transaction. He kept his cool (and his sense of humor) throughout the tour and knew it was right to be respectful and courteous despite the oddities he encountered around the house. Sean lives by the motto that real estate should be about building relationships, solving problems, and having fun – which is exactly what he’s done. Listen in to learn the value of communication and why a relationship is worth much more than a commission check.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
