Today’s Blueprint might look a little different – okay, a lot different – but that’s because we have some big news to share. 

Some of you may have seen that we joined Carolwood Estates, but that’s not all! We are excited to announce that we have partnered with Estate Media, the entertainment and real estate media company founded last year by Josh Flagg, Griffin O’Brien, and Andrew Shanfeld. 

We are beyond excited about this partnership. It’s the perfect fit for us and The Blueprint. We’re going to continue developing original content while Estate Media will oversee the newsletter and the podcast, bringing it all under their impressive roster of real estate content.

But here’s the most important part: nothing will change in our relationship with you. 

We’re still going to be in your inbox twice a week as always. We’re still going to scour the market for stories that we think you should know about, and give you our best analysis and advice. 

Our goal has been to educate and inspire agents to be their best selves. By partnering with Estate Media, we believe that we have only enhanced our ability to do just that. 

Now on with today’s special edition!

Why we partnered with Estate Media

Estate Media is developing original IP and branded content across all social and traditional media platforms. Its mission: create engaging content that informs, inspires, and captivates both real estate pros AND consumers. 

Within just six months of its public launch, Estate Media has extended its reach to more than 25 million followers across its creator network, 200K followers across its O&O digital and social channels, and 115K subscribers across its newsletter network.

Our take

We think this is a great partnership. Our mission has been to help as many agents as possible, and Estate Media now can help us further that goal. They are building a truly massive network – shows, podcasts, newsletters – that will redefine real estate media. We have a terrific relationship with Josh Flagg (…stop snickering, Josh… we can hear you!) and we really think this can be something big.

Estate Media is a real estate content powerhouse

We’ve told you already about Estate Media’s mission, now we’d like to tell you about all Estate Media has to offer. Well, that would actually take quite a while, so here’s just a small sampling of EM’s impressive roster of shows and newsletters.



Our take

In just a short period of time, Estate Media has established significant relationships with many important players in the field. It is strategically positioned to change and dominate the real estate media landscape. We are thrilled to be a part of their mission, and we’re excited to have you along for the ride.

That’s it for this edition of the Blueprint!

Never forget: each day is a gift and a new opportunity to lead the life you want and to become the person you want to be. The mistakes and missteps you’ve made in the past don’t define you. Live as intentionally as you can and be ruthlessly focused on the goals you’ve set out to achieve. You can do it!

Have a wonderful weekend, and we’ll see you back here on Tuesday!
