David Mandell is one of those people whose deep caring of other people and whose deep sense of responsibility for others shines through everything he does. I was super excited when he agreed to this interview with me. I have been reading his blog for a while and have been very impressed with the depth of his writing and the sincere, candid expressions of his feelings, emotions, struggles, and wins on his personal leadership journey from Founder to CEO. Plus, he’s just a really nice guy who happens to be changing real estate for the better. Please listen to the very end…I think his emotional story about his “most difficult decision” is worth listening to twice. As always, let me know what you think.
