Director Norman Stone on His New CS Lewis Film 'The Most Reluctant Convert'

"And let me just tell you, I'm a fan of C. S. Lewis. Which brings me to my friend Norman stone, the film, director, Norman stone, got on the map early in 1984 by directing a film called shadowlands for the BBC starring Claire Bloom, Joss ackland, and he's been doing all kinds of things, but a little bit of C. S. Lewis here and there. He has just directed a new film called the most reluctant convert starring our friend max McLean and Norman stone across the pond from the environs of Glasgow is here with us in the studio. Norman is that you. This is still me, yeah. It's still you. My friend, listen, we've been friends for a long time. And you and I have had millions of silly conversations or at least hundreds. But we both love C. S. Lewis. So when I found out from max McLean, in this studio, you know, he's starring as Lewis, but that you had directed it, I flipped, because I said, there's literally nobody else who should direct the film. Can you tell us because there are people tuning in, they didn't hear the max maclean interview. They may not know about the film rather than my telling them what I know. Tell us what is the film and what will we find in the film? Okay. Louis did write a lot of books, you're right. One of the ones that's probably the most impressive in many ways is the surprise by joy. Basically it's his own story. He writes with a self deferential wit and information comes out and you want to read more. So this is how he began life turned into an atheist and then was a very dogmatic atheist. Anyone can university after a trip for the First World War and so on. And he soon being challenged by people like

"I'm sitting here with the man who plays Lewis and who conceived of the whole thing, max McLean max, that must make you a producer. That I wrote the producer, a writer, write, in this case, though we have producers and that my main responsibility is to play C. S. Lewis, which it's really a joy to do. It's fun to be that smart for 90 minutes. Where did you grow up? Well, dad was military. So we didn't have a particular place. I'm an immigrant. I came from Panama came to America when I was four. In fact, the west side passenger terminal on 48th street is about ten minutes from where I currently live. So it's kind of interesting that I'm close to that. First thing I had to do was master the English language been working on it ever since at four. Dad was all over. I mean, I went ten different schools from first grade to 12th grade. Oh my gosh. When do you come to faith and how did that play a part of? Well, I'm an adult convert I was 23 and Louis was the somebody gave me a copy of surprised by joy, which I didn't understand a word of it at the time. But the second book that was given me was the screwtape letters. Yeah. And I said, oh, I know this guy. This guy has been in my life for a long time. And that really is what sort of nailed Lewis as a key figure in my life. But I didn't read him very much until about 15 years later, more and more than that. Maybe 20 plus years later where I was doing a show in a theater professor suggested that I would make a really good screw tape. And I didn't know if that was a compliment or not. But I was really intrigued, and we had an idea how to do it and he said, well, we can get the rights. We would have a go of it. So from that point on, that would have been in the early 2000s. So it's been about 20 years of really investing in Lewis. Screw tape about spiritual warfare from the demon's perspective. The great divorce from the Holy Spirit perspective in both cases, Lewis is being so transparent. He's talking about his own battles of against battles with temptation and screw tape in great divorce how he resists the Holy Spirit and doing those two pieces made me want to go back to his conversion because he's always going back to that spot as how he resisted it, how he fought it. And he just got a minute left, but you talked about what he calls joy dialectic of desire. His Zane so it's hard to explain, but something that, as a kid, he remembers this something awakened in him. And he recognizes eventually, that's my longing for God, even though I didn't know at the time what that was. He says, I think Merry Christmas, if I find it myself a desire that no experience in this world can satisfy the most probable explanation is I was made for another world. And he also says that he doesn't think that that desire is found in this life, this life is only meant to pleasures only meant to arouse it to suggest the real thing. And that he thought that the best he could do with his life is to pursue that desire and help others do the same. People really don't say this often, but it occurs to me as you say this. He was a tremendous thinker and a tremendous philosopher. He put it in beautiful writing, but even those thoughts are really original, beautiful. We're out of time, folks. You've got to go to C. S. Lewis movie dot com. The movie is the most reluctant convert in November 3rd. Max maclean congratulations, and thank you. Well, thank you. Thank you, very much..

"Was that C. S. Lewis was such an amazing writer. I will compare him to Shakespeare because he wrote his own literature. And I don't mean he wrote literature. I mean, he created a literature, I guess chesterton is a little bit like that. They wrote in so many genres with such genius that they created a whole world. Chesterton was the inspiration for much of his apologetic works. But I would say it was McDonald was his inspiration for this fantasies. And also George Charles Williams as well.

It's a retelling of Paradise lost. It's incredible. And that hideous strength, what do you even make? It's prescient its prophetic.

Eric and Max McLean Discuss C.S. Lewis's Greatest Sermon

"I'm talking about one of my favorite subjects ever C. S. Lewis, the author, the Christian apologist, talking to a dear friend, max McLean. Max, you've spent much of your life bringing Lewis to life on the stage. I've seen you do a number of things. They blur together in my mind. I can't remember divorce. Okay, so screw tape, the great divorce and the most in convert, which I saw what? Three years ago, I don't know. It was it opened in New York. It ran for 15 weeks in New York in 2016. Well, not only that, but I was privileged, I think in either maybe it was 2005 to see you it might have been after that, to see you give the sermon the weight of glory. The saint Mary's church in Cambridge, that's the place where Lewis gave that sermon in the 50s, I guess, 41. 41. Really? Wow. One of his most famous sermons. And it's funny as a sermon because, you know, people have different ideas of what sermons are. This is just like a spectacular essay that's also a sermon. But you memorize the whole thing. That was pretty influential in the writing of this play. In fact, the it concludes with a good bit of a weight of goy. There are no ordinary people. We've never met a mere mortal. Yeah. I'll say. I want to convert a lot of what Louis wrote into hard boiled 30s dialog. Gee joy your swell. She probably spoke like that as a New Yorker. You've done so much of this, but to bring it to the screen because that's to me, it's always been one of the frustrations of theater, is that only so many people get to the theater, and that there is something when you can put it on the screen, of course, it's different. But you had our friend Norman stone turn it into a

"Is great writing. And Lewis is one of the greatest writers who ever lived. And what Michael ward brings out the depth, the poetic depth, the mythological depth of his writing. It's just it takes to a whole other level that thanks to Michael ward we now know about. I'm thrilled even though I joke that he's in this but I could have played warnie. Think of all the people I could have played. Let me ask you before we go to a break. This comes out in theaters, November 3rd, around the country. Do we know how many theaters it's in yet? Several hundred. It's selling very, very well. Okay, I'm not surprised. Louis has a huge following. Folks, even if you don't know who he is, trust me. You were speaking about his words about 99% of the words in this player his. So, you know, it's not like we're making stuff up. It mostly from his autobiography surprised by joy. Well, that's what's so interesting. I mean, he wrote so beautifully and the line that you quoted that he was, you know, perhaps the most ejected the most reluctant convert in all of England. He tells the truth that he was almost disappointed that he had found his way to this place, because now what's going to happen to his life? You know, he's going to maybe lose some friends and in the end it worked out pretty well for him. It did. But at the time he was afraid, and he wrote so beautifully in surprise by joy that to have it turned into a play by you and now into a movie by you. It's the most reluctant convert, the untold story of C. S. Lewis folks go to C. S. Lewis movie dot.

"Have you heard about C. S. Lewis? Neither have I, but somebody has evidently made a movie about him. You know what? I just realized C. S. Lewis, that is the writer C. S. Lewis. That's right. Max. I've seen you perform on the stage as C. S. Lewis many times. I get so excited about C. S. Lewis that when I heard you were doing a stage play, I flipped out, it is now a movie. Right. And that's why you're here. That's right. How did this happen? I mean, look, you know that it just doesn't get bigger for me than C. S. Lewis. I want the whole world to know about this guy. You have spent much of your life making him known to the world. I know there are probably people listening or watching who actually don't know who he is. And I'm telling you folks, he's one of the greatest writers who ever lived, who ever lived, one of the greatest writers who ever lived, wrote in innumerable genres, mastered just about all of them, just a genius and a profound Christian. And one of my greatest heroes in life. So I've lived long enough to where my friend max McLean has made a film called the most reluctant convert, the untold story of C. S. Lewis. So how did you come to make this film? Well, COVID had a lot to do with it. The play was running. We were doing a lot of college tours with the play. March 15th of last year, everything ended. When did the most reluctant convert become a play and tell my audience in case they don't know why is it titled the most reluctant convert? Well, it's about Louis's journey from vigorous to bunker of Christianity to becoming the most reluctant convert in all of England. I gave in and admitted that God is God, nelton prayed, perhaps the most dejected, reluctant, convert 7 or English. And those long story, it started with the death of his mother at, I guess he was 9. He had a terrible relationship with his father. He experienced the brutality of World War I and this got into the conclusion that either there's no God behind the universe, a God indifferent to go to an evil or worse an evil God. And that's where that's kind of the Nader of his disbelief and it's from there that we follow his journey to becoming the most influential Christian of the 20th century. Am I in this movie? You should be. So I'm not in this Alvin. That's the code. That's when they say you should be, but you're not. I noticed, not only are you the star of the movie, but my friend Michael ward. I just read this. He's in the movie. Yeah, he plays. He plays the vicar. So we actually filmed at headington quarry. The holy Trinity haddington quarry and we hired Michael to be the parish priest. Unbelievable. I would have done it for half whatever he charged you. What a bloodsucker. Michael, if you're watching, I'm onto you. Michael, listen, I have to tell my audience, Michael ward, if you've watched Socrates in the city, one of my favorite conversations I've ever had was with Michael ward, who is a C. S. Lewis scholar of scholars, and he wrote a book to books, one called planet Narnia and the other. Code. The Narnia code. Just genius. I mean, we don't have time to get into that. But I'm thrilled I know, of course he's an Oxford. And when you refer to headington quarry, that's the church where Lewis and his brother warny worshiped and there's a little plaque. I have a picture there. So you did film it right where much of this happened. Yeah, there was 18 locations in and around Oxford. We had 17 actors. Three actors playing Lewis. We had a boy Lewis Eddie ray Martin, young man Lewis who went off to war became the scholar. That's Nicholas Ralph who stars in all creatures great and small. And then I play the elder Lewis looking back on his life and reflecting kind of like Mark Twain looking back on his it has that sort of format. Well, one of the other exciting things, well, first of all, let's tell that let's start with the headline. November 3rd. This is one night only in theaters. This is a form that people are doing increasingly. So tickets are on sale at C. S. Lewis movie dot com. Folks, if you can get to this, please, we've got a patronized great art about great subjects. And it doesn't really get better. November 3rd, in theaters around the country, you can go to C. S. Lewis movie dot com to figure out where there's a trailer there. You can watch it. But I was most excited about this when I found out that my friend Norman stone has directed it. Tell us about Norman. I love Norway so much. Norman, I've respected him for 30 years because he put together the original shadowlands the BBC shuttle ads which became the movie with Anthony Hopkins and Deborah winger. He and I met about ten years ago to an arts conference in Santa Monica, state in touch. And about two and a half years ago, I called him and asked him the play was doing very well. I said, would you consider making a movie this play? And he said, well, send me the script. And so he looked at the script really liked it and wanted to stay close to it. But open it up for film. And we thought it was going to be a 22 23 project. But when COVID came, we moved it up. And he said that was back in June. He said that a filmmaking was opening up in the UK and so and he could get a really good crew and cast if we worked quickly because nobody was working. So I said, well, if you can verify that and verify that we have the locations we need, I'll see if I can get my board to release some funds to get it in the can, and then we can talk about post production and distribution later. So we did we got the rights and C. S. Lewis state to do the film due to the to do the shooting. And I went and laid August, empty plane as big as Air Force One with few people on it. Fewer people on it. And quarantine for a couple of weeks and then we did this shoot in about a month. It's unbelievable. Norman works fast. I've never seen anybody like him. He's like, just boom boom, boom boom boom boom. He just gets it done. And he's directed so much wonderful stuff. Most famous, I guess for his, you mentioned his 1984 BBC drama called shadowlands, which most of us know the Hollywood version ten years later with Deborah winger and Anthony Hopkins. But Norman he's been in and around the world of C. S. Lewis. All these years, he actually did the Narnia code with Michael ward. Okay, I wasn't going to bring this up because I had forgotten. But this is true. It's because of me. I'll never forget it. I was feeling slightly ill. And I was supposed to meet this guy named Michael ward in New York. Norman stone dear friend was staying with us in our apartment, and I said, Norman, I said, I'm not feeling well. Would you come to this lunch with me? Because, you know, you know about Louis and it'll be more fun if you're there because I don't know how much energy I have today. He comes to the lunch and at some point I said, hey, hey, he said Norman. I'm not the kind of person to do this to a friend to put him on the spot, but you realize you need to make a film about this. And son of a gun, he made a film about it, and it was on the BBC and it did very, very well. For the BBC, but I totally forgot that I can take credit for introducing them and even telling him like you've got to do this. This is so I mean, that's another conversation, but it does lead us into why Louis is worth knowing. Because he really was an uncommon genius. There's a lot of bad writing as a writer, I can tell you folks, a lot of times people read things by and I just go, you know what? That's really not great writing..

"Anybody else is able to give $10,000, it is always my joy to have dinner to get to know people, it's the least I can do and it's one of the few things I can offer in my busy skills. I would be delighted to figure out how to do that. You have to go to our website and taxes talk. Dot com, click on the banner alliance defending freedom later today. I'm told, it may be, I may already have done it by the time this air is, but I'm supposed to be on the Dennis prager show today to talk about my new book is atheism dead, I'm doing a lot of media around that. That's why I'm set up in my new temporary studio here on the Pacific Coast. I've noticed a number of typos in the first edition of is atheism dead. It says, this is so silly. I don't know how this got past the editors, but there's a lot of little typos. But the one that struck me is that it claims that Albert Einstein was a rodeo clown for the first 50 years of his life. I'm almost sure that that's nonsense. I apologize to people who are looking for a substantive book to have to read something like that. And it says that maximum Planck sticking with the theme was conceived in a rodeo barrel. You know, the ones that the rodeo clowns hide in, so all of that stuff is not true. Everything else in the book is true, but actually there are a couple of silly typos like it says that the diameter of Jupiter is 900,000 miles when it's 90,000 miles. Things like that that we didn't catch, but we're printing a new addition and all the rodeo stuff is taken out. That's taken out. So I just want to be clear that the first edition we kind of rushed it to print. And we worked on every single one of those little little nits. We picked all the knits out like a mother monkey. And we were ready to we're printing the new edition and we're very excited about it. It has been selling well thanks to most of you, I hope you find what's in it at least as fascinating as I do because there are some stuff in it that is just and, you know, I didn't make it up. This is all true. It's all it's all true, it's all true stuff. I'm speaking all over California this week tonight doing something in San Marcos, California, which is north of San Diego. Pretty much the whole country is north of San Diego. But San Marcos, I'll be doing something in Thousand Oaks this weekend. Go to my website. Eric metaxas dot com. If you go to Eric metaxas dot com, you'll see my whole schedule. I'm talking everywhere. I eventually, by December, I will be speaking in billings Montana. That's not a joke. Hey Eric, is it true that you guys are doing a seance tonight to reach out to atheism to see if it is in fact dead? The spirit of atheism does not respond. I mean, we've done so many seances and we say a few of atheism. If you're there, so even if it's dead, it's so dead that even it doesn't even have a spirit. It's kind of sad, really. It doesn't live on. It's a relief. Oh, I guess, on some levels too. Well, listen, in the book, what I say, people know this, all right? It doesn't mean that you can't be an atheist. It's just that you can't be an intellectually honest atheist. You're just, you just become part of a tribe that calls themselves atheists. If you want to say I'm an agnostic, well, we can have a conversation. But according to what's in my book, which, of course, only scratches the surface. The concept of a world without God without a creator, it's not intellectually sensible. There are too much information as to mount in the last 50 years. I want to be blunt about that. I simply think that's a fact. And if people want to say, I think Christianity is stupid. It's a free country, but I don't think you can say there is no God because the evidence has become so overwhelming. Mainly from science, which, of course, has great, in fact, delicious irony because it's often atheist that say that science is the enemy of faith. And it turns out, not so much. Yeah. Science, I feel like allows people to say to other people that they're dumb without really having any facts to back it up. They just kind of point to science as a blanket. At the end of the book, I mean, the first part of the book is scientific facts and theories and second part of the book is biblical archeology. Some of which is truly just like crazy, funny stories, true stories. But the third part of the book I deal with this issue of the atheists. And it is hard to believe how intellectually sloppy they are. I mean, they talk about they say we all believe in reason reason reason reason and being rational. I mean, not like those faith people. We talk about reason and rationality and they talk about it, but they're in fact not reasonable and rational. So I think that's now called gaslighting. And the idea that you it's like talking about on pro math, I'm pro math, but you don't even know what math is and you don't do math. That's kind of the conclusion I came to. They're just, they're just sort of angry, materialists who turns out don't have an intellectual leg to stand on, which is not a good thing. And so I think we have to be honest and talk about agnosticism rather than atheism, because I think atheism has it's like cover the book as a snake swallowing its own tail. Ultimately, you know, that we know that a snake can't eat itself. It's a metaphor. But it is an idea. But it's an important idea that things have to stand up on their own. And I think atheism has had its day and I think we can now say that it doesn't work if that makes you angry, read the book and tell me what I'm missing..

I'd say if you give $10,000 to the alliance defending freedom, we can have dinner together and spend all this time together. Everybody knows, I don't mean a syllable of that. I'm blowing smoke. I just want the money, okay? You'll never see my face. Oh, all right, since I'm a Christian, I can't do stuff like that. This is it's such a joy for me when somebody gives that kind of money to an organization I believe in, because the live spending freedom is defending freedom. Doesn't that make sense?

Because of once again i grew up. You know little yet. Little light of mine. Yeah i'm gonna love it. Yes yes in fact. I went to house of blues gospel. Brunch and. I was disappointed the whole time i was having gotten well. They didn't do anything in that style of. I like i wanted a e street band. Kind of that wildness and it was like no. It was just like just this. I really hate to tell you something doesn't get. There's only one of i- i- terry smith. Who does the music talks. Podcasts was talking about He was at the london show that they released a few of you know last year right though the yeah the november show. Yeah so he was there and he said that He any says it was one of the few times that he was on his company's dime. We actually was able to bring a client And he said you know. And you know me. Jesse i would. I would not have to be a true fan. Before i let them go and he says that his his his client looked at him and said that was good. But it's just not east band is it's it's it's different. Yeah you're right. there's you know. I hate to fall into that same drab. I'm because i'm a big fan of bruce st work. Guess but yeah bruce. The ban stevens said that's the legend. It really is and it's great to see him. Try something new and try to work with other musicians to see what they can do. Like like the seeger sessions or ninety two but yeah you gotta go home the eastern well and i. My only disappointment was the western stars. Film was. I wanted him. Because i'm greedy to pick three or four traditional e street songs and have them play with that ban the same way. The seeger sessions started. Doing it like that i i. I'm glad we got you know. Rhinestone cowboy but i wanted three or four other like s- throw in bonus tracks just something to hear that would affect with that because that band was so much fun to watch. We'll my google counterpoint. To you on that one is okay. You would just have such a direct comparison between e-street and nani street. It would have to be a totally different arrangement to to to look at the song and so yeah that's stands on. Its own that's to me. That's why the western charges so great because it's it's not easy street. It's and it's totally different when he did. A as you said rhinestone cowboy. That's an amazing performance. I love it. Total highlight for me. Oh i d too and partly because my my mom loved glen campbell you know. I grew up in know. We listened to both kinds of music. In my house. Country and western. Yes so In so to hear him. You know the the jimmy webb and incline campbell influence was just something amazing to me And i know you guys have talked on the podcast..

We don't know too much about specific failed fan interaction. Fan bruce interactions. But we do you know. I don't think we know. I don't think bruce sign any absentee notes back in one thousand nine hundred ninety. Eight or nineteen eighty exact. Those are the kinds of things that would come out. People would hear in record books. Yeah i think if you listen to the the percents show from seventy eight not the broadcast but the other night. I think this is where my memory is. Failing me here. I figured is the twentieth twenty-first that they've released got you. You remember but you hear. People are sending birthday presents up to stage. And so it's cool to hear bruce. Open these things and react in real time. So i guess that's kind of similar but not but not but not quite. He's definitely become lot looser and a lot more comfortable with meaning with meaning that much to people basically were the he's used to people saying. Oh you bring your music say my life and you know it's it's true. Yes so. I'm sure it took them a while to kinda. Come around to that. Realize that yeah. His music has had a huge impact on people. When i drove down to austin for one of the book signings and you know. I what are you say to him. What what do you try to and And he know there's nothing unique. You can say that he had and so you know in my mind. I'm like i needed to say more than needed him to hear it in. So that kind of thought process Do you do you find it interesting. The years that he's changed where you know they used it like even. Sarah not live made a skit back in the seventies about just the stories right like because he used to tell so many stories and now than there are so many less stories do. Do you think it's just him as a performer is kind of moved past that. What do you think he's changed. What's your best guess. Let's a good question. I think the change happened between the joe tour and reunion tour. Okay and were like maybe i was. I wasn't joking. But i said that e talk so much on the joe tour that he didn't need a talk on on the next one And i just think that in the reunion era of the music the crowds crowds.

"This is the new yorker fiction podcast from the new yorker magazine. I'm deborah tradesman fiction editor at the new yorker each month. We invite a writer to choose a story from the magazine's archives to read and discuss this month. We're going to hear gallatin canyon by thomas mccain which was published in the new yorker in january two thousand three. The road stretched before me like an arrow. There was only enough. That left before rigby for me to say perhaps involuntarily. I wonder if we should just get married. Louise quickly looked away. The story was chosen by oprah who is the author of two novels the tigers wife and inland. Hi hi deborah. So you said when we first talked about doing podcast episode that you wanted to read a western story. Why was that. I think that there's a a renewed interest in literature of the west and also by authors. Who hail from the west and the story. I think is so deeply rooted in landscape and space in a certain kind of mentality of the mountain west which it both honors excoriates i am. I've loved the story. Ever since. I first read it and it just feels very emblematic of the space to me. Now when the story came out in two thousand three or a teenager. Did you read it. Then i did not. I'm ashamed to say. I read it some years but i did read it before i became a resident of the mountain west myself and i certainly think it shaped the way i thought about the area. Have you been a longtime reader of maclean's work. I would say that. I've been reading his work for almost the entire duration of my quote unquote literary life. A friend of mine. Who is a huge fan of his work and introduced me to it and I mean there's such range in his stories in his novels there's so much. Discover with mclean. Always

Both sides of this is We live alone a lot because the world forces us to but also because We want out of our families away from since arias neighbors. We try to walk down the middle.

Optimizing your reputation online with Sean Smith

"Welcome to another episode of the elevate. Podcast where we into some of the most interesting minds in business in real estate for the very best cheap since strategies it implemented. Elevate your business. I'm smith mclean. Editor relate agent and host of today's show on today's show joined by podium regional sales directors. Sean smith with a background in real estate that includes property management support and also some time we thrill state dot com delay. You sean carter. Focus involves helping agencies obtain and manage their online reviews which is very important. So welcome to the show sean. Thank you samantha. Grades of asia. That was a male phil. Welcome to the show on like this is a bit of alliteration going on there. So let's dive straight in an online reviews and you always hear about the importance of reviews. Why do they medicine much match. Agents online reputation depends when you're talking about online reviews of it is for an agency if they'd just using reviews as a way to get some nice testimonials that they wanna put on their website. That's great doesn't drive new business. So when i think of reviews and the reason i've come over into this space and i'm so passionate about reviews. Specifically in the real estate sector reviews me business. Landlords vandals looking at online reviews. They're only looking for one reason and that's to safer. The next agency is that they appoint to manage their property all sell the property much. That loss check isn't it. Because you do research and you jumping in jump out you do all sorts of other things as it can chamber and then finally before you make that selection you go and look at the reviews right absolutely absolutely any. It could be the difference between someone being photo to a great agent. That person still check those reviews and they might get turned off even if it's the best friends recommendation. Yeah it's an interesting topic but reviews on just about reputation. They're all about search engine optimization as well so can you talk us through how that works exactly questions. I'd encourage everyone listening to this when you get to a desktop buta or a about such real estate agency and then put in the suburb of your agency. If you're not just looking there at agencies that have a couple of reviews you'll get the most recommended agencies in that area and that's tied down to run about eight or nine out of ten. Seo factors with google a purely tied to those reviews whether they've recent reviews whether you consistently and frequently get those reviews and also you start writing in your total number as well but then the baffle the nettle. Yeah that's interesting. So google is actually ranking people based on race of reviews and based on the number of reviews and i also take it. The velocity of reviews like committee reviews of coming over sitting period of time. Absolutely in that in google's is that comes down to they want to make sure that this isn't just a flash in the pan for an office so if an office is ten reviews an and then they go. You know what this is really important. Add an extra hundred reviews next week. We're gonna ask all about science. That might look good in your number of reviews. No star writing but google's not going to look super favorably on that because it's not part of your process if you're looking at reviews as a new business strategy for instance make pot of every process make it part of the selling journey make it part of the. The tenant janis well finding appropriate after. They signed a lease in that secured the premise austin for review. It will just happen day down. Yeah that's interesting. And i want to get to asking for reviews because partying does that exceptionally well. We just talked a lot about google but there are a whole lot of review platforms agents right my agent real estate facebook etc in european. Where should agents focus. Think it depends a lot on what they're trying to which eighth with each of these different viewpoint foams. I'm very biased. Because google has actually backed podium. Not necessarily the best choice to get involved in which platform would always encourage people to find out where the custom is a finding them from. I know that some of those review sites. They're focused on buys intense. We know whether going though if they looking for property reviews probably on really influence. Mfa looking to buy property. Google is the first point. Of course someone doing the research on like i say land rivendell doing the research on the agency that they going to enlist. They'll be agent the agency and the brand. That's what google is absolutely the number one place because it's tied into your phone. It's tied into a web browser you see it straightaway and you can see her as the most recommended agency
