Since Realtors would seemingly rather talk about real estate than eat food, drink water, or pretty much any other activity normal people enjoy, the surge in popularity for the best real estate podcasts makes perfect sense. Sure, they can’t actually talk back to a podcast (though let’s face it, many of us do just that 😄), but they can at least listen to people talking about real estate.
There’s only one problem—there are a gazillion and one real estate podcasts out there to choose from. To help you cut through the noise to find the true podcasting gems, we put together this list of the best real estate podcasts of 2023.
1. The Over Ask Podcast
Hosts: Eric Simon and Matt Lionetti from Broke Agent Media
What You Get: Zero-bullshit interviews with real estate royalty like Ryan Serhant that somehow manage to be both actionable and entertaining.
While most agents still only know the Broke Agent for the spicy memes, they have actually been quietly putting out the best real estate podcast online for a few years now. Hosted by Los Angeles Realtor and meme magicians Eric Simon and Matt Lionetti, the Over Ask podcast snags deep-dive interviews with some of the biggest names in real estate, like Ryan Serhant and TikTok superstar Glennda Baker.
Their secret sauce is to be a mix of DIY (dare we say punk rock?) attitude that blends humor and industry insight to get their guests to open up and start talking about the things other podcasts are too afraid to get into.

2. Eye on Real Estate With Dottie Herman
Host: Dottie Herman
What You Get: No-bullshit real estate market analysis from one of the most successful CEOs in the industry.
You don’t become the richest self-made woman in real estate by accident. Elliman CEO Dottie Herman not only claims that title, but has dedicated a surprising amount of her (incredibly) valuable time to help educate agents and the general public about real estate. As the “self-made” in “richest self-made woman” in real estate might imply, Dottie Herman has a gift for cutting through the BS and getting right to the heart of the issues that we’re facing in our industry today. Even better, if you happen to be in the New York area, you can tune in the old-fashioned way on AM970.

The Close Special Report: The Best Real Estate Coaches of 2023
6. The Close Weekly
While we’re admittedly biased here, we’ll put Sean Moudry up against any real coach online today. He really is that good. Once you learn about his background, it’s easy to see why. After growing up in poverty, Sean has spent 27 years building a real estate success story from the ground up. A former Realtor 30 under 30 agent, Sean went on to launch his own brokerage, write two books and dozens of articles for The Close, and runs his own highly successful coaching company, 16 Strategies.
The topics Sean covers in his weekly podcast run the gamut from getting divorce leads, generating leads from iBuyers, to a CNBC-worthy discussion of recession strategies with Crystal Ball award-winning market forecaster Barry Habib.

7. Keeping It Real With D.J. Paris
Started by D.J. Paris, President of Sales & Marketing at Chicago’s Kale Realty, Keeping It Real has grown from a handful of interviews of top agents into one of the most successful real estate podcasts online today.
Of course, we’re a little biased, since our own Chris Linsell is a regular guest on Keeping It Real. Chris and D.J. Paris hold court on the state of the industry, tech, and what it means to be a successful real estate agent in 2022.

14. Think Like a CEO Podcast With Gary Keller
Although he may not post new episodes as often as the other podcasters on our list, we think Gary Keller’s back catalog of episodes speaks for itself. The advice that Keller dishes out here is not only insightful and based on decades of experience, but is delivered in his trademark style that actually resonates with agents.
He can sometimes get a little high-level for some, but overall, having Keller talking about success on your headphones while you’re on the elliptical is a great way to get amped about crushing it at your next showing.

15. Keeping It Real: Real Geeks Ft. Jeff Manson
Hosts: Greg Harrelson and Frank Klesitz
What You Get: Deep-dive interviews with top producers
The Real Geek’s Keeping it Real podcast belongs on every agent’s must-listen list. Hosts Greg Harrelson and Frank Klesitz manage to cut away the nonsense and just get straight to the point with their top-producing agent guests.
The show’s bread and butter is interviewing agents with impossible-sounding but very real achievements. You’ll hear from agents who closed 54 deals in their first year, agents who tripled their gross commission income (GCI), and more. New episodes are somewhat sporadic, which means digging in their archives on Apple Podcasts or YouTube is a must.
