Crazy Shit In Real Estate

Summary:

Sometimes, being a realtor means sticking it out for clients in the most dire situations. For Peter Murray, sticking it out meant showing 3 houses even though he had a puddle of blood pooling in his shoe. In this episode, Leigh welcomes Peter Murray, an agent for Re/Max Results who has been in real estate for almost for years. Peter decided to be brave and persevere through three unconventional house showings, even if it cost him a foot injury in a house that was still very much under construction.

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.
