The new star of Bravo TV's Million Dollar Listing NY is Fredrik Eklund (aka Tag Ericksson to you gay porn fans). For many realtors, selling real estate is often a 2nd career after they get burnt out from their 1st one. I suppose Fredrik is no exception! With his salacious past, clients might wonder, "Gee, is the house or is he for sale?" But with clients like Justin Timberlake & Cameron Diaz, it clearly hasn't been a problem (then again, those 2 are straight...). Bravo's press release makes no mention at all about his prior il-LUST-rious career, but you can count your little ding-a-ling it will come to light mid-season for some ratings drama.
"Fredrik Eklund is the youngest Managing Director for Prudential Douglas Elliman. With more than 1.25 billion dollars in residential sales, he is known for being a “listings machine” ...is constantly rated as downtown’s “Top Luxury Broker” and was nominated as “Rookie of the Year” by the Real Estate Board of New York."And to all those haters who accuse Bravo TV of pushing a homosexual agenda (Andy Cohen, Madison, Josh Flagg, Jeff Lewis, Brad Goreski, Tim Gunn and more!), well I guess you was right!!

| |Last week, MSN.com posted an article called "What's wrong with House Hunters." It's the same old complaints: too fast, too fake, too blah blah blah. Um, hello... it's TV! Don't take it so seriously, folks. It's HGTV, not PBS! Of course, no one buys a house in 25 minutes. That's the beauty of TV. Rachel Ray miraculously whips up a soufflé in 10 minutes & nobody screams Bloody Mary! Why do real estate shows get called into question?
Pride & Equality Magazine sits down with me to chat about LGBTQ youth, being a "Real Estate Artist" and my eggs drying up!Also, I'm so flattered to be the special guest for their 4th Annual Vincent R. Johnson Models of Hope Dinner next month. They honor "individuals that not only the GLBT youth can look up to, but anyone the community can see as a ray of light." Great cause! Tickets just $35 or $350 for a table. Hope to see you there!
| |2012 is the year of the dragon. Is it a good time to buy or sell real estate this year for you? Depends under what sign you're born under. Rat, dog, ox, unicorn? J/K. There's no unicorn, unfortch. So, before you write that offer, check out your horoscope here!
Just arrived in my mailbox today. Here are the back covers of the current issues of Realtor Magazine & CA Real Estate Magazine. Is it me or do the models for the new Century 21 ads seem too pretty, preppy and WASP-y? Wow, it's Realtor Ken & Barbie! I can't wait for the next ad...featuring Skipper! To be fair, the web commercials on C21's site aren't as, um, monotone...Is diversity important to you in choosing a brokerage?
Last week I dropped in on a friend who closed escrow over a year ago. It was a fabulous property & I couldn't wait to see how she decorated it. I walked in...and it looked the same. Whomp, Whomp! I said, "Girl, what happened to all those design plans you fantasized about!? Didn't you TIVO like 800 hours of ColorSplash!?" She had no time, no money & no idea where to start. What a shame! But I see this all the time. Folks spend thousands a month on house payments but don't do a darn thing to make it nice.
So, eHow asked me to share some quick tips on how to find a designer to help you dress up the biggest purchase of your life! And it won't cost you an arm & a leg either.
Check out my cousins handcrafted custom made shirt company Shirtlisted. Yes, that's me in the video. (...and of course the screen shot youtube uses is a crotch shot! D'oh!) Great job cuz! I love my 2 shirts. Always get complimented at open houses when I wear them.
