In this episode of your city or mine?, Julio meets Bess Freedman, CEO of Brown Harris Stevens, one of the largest privately-owned real estate companies in the US. As the market recovers from the pandemic, Bess talks about how our housing needs have changed; about why Bill de Blasio has failed New York as its mayor and what’s needed next; about how we can all use our power to help others; and about why she’d like to give every single nurse and teacher in NYC a 25% raise. Plus, Julio speaks to Maria José Gómez, editor of Time Out Barcelona, about the latest trends in the city.
