Crazy Shit In Real Estate


Who got the last laugh in this story? Jamil Damji, a real estate wholesaler and coach, shares how he was hit by the market downturn, turned to comedy for a few years, then came back alive, kickin’ and ready to crush the real estate game. He shares his journey, information about his company KeyGlee, and how he pivoted from media to real estate. Listen in to hear about Jamil’s business partners - and hear what he learned about himself when working with people much younger than him.

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.
