In this episode, Tony and Robert talk about:

1. Embracing digital technology and automation to increase efficiencies and become a majority paperless office.

2. Purchasing established rent rolls to push and expand quickly into new markets.

3. Having a healthy work-life balance to help encourage an energetic and positive team culture.

4. Working harder and faster during this period to stay ahead and be ready to take advantage of opportunities post-coronavirus. ‘Hope is not a strategy; you must plan.’
