New TV SHOW ALERT: Realtor & Her Buck Naked Clients! (Don't Pretend Like You Ain't Gonna Watch, You Voyeurs!)
As I mentioned a few months ago, I got my fabulous buyers a free renovation on a new HGTV show called Power Brokers. It stars Mike Aubrey (Real Estate Intervention) & Juan Barbieri (The Bachelorette). It finally aired tonight. Hope you enjoyed my little appearance!
The star of Bravo TV's Million Dollar Listing NY is facing an investigation by the Dept of Real Estate. He had the gall to photoshop his listing to the point it was unrecognizable. Suspicious!!!
News flash: a "little white lie didn't kill anybody", but it certainly gives the rest of us realtors a bad name! Thanks a heap! Luis kinda sorta maybe not really apologized on Bravo TV's blog....Do you accept his apology?

US News & World Report interviews me about real estate reality TV. Some peeps question the veracity of these shows, but speaking as someone who is a viewer and participant, I say "This is HGTV, not PBS!" Die-hard fans of reality TV scour the internet, post on fan forums, read the blogs, we all know these shows are "produced." There is nothing wrong with that! People tune in to be entertained. Reality TV has been around for over a decade. We know no one buys a house in 25 minutes, just like we know Rachel Ray can't bake a souffle in a 5 min segment! Everyone knows how these shows are "made for TV". So what? You take the viewers on a journey and at the end they learn a bit about real estate....and that, folks, is why the question of reality TV being fact or fiction is besides the point! Read the full article here:
"The good thing is that you see the pros and cons of the house that they end up buying," Chan says. "They film them talking about the trade-offs. Those are very real conversations that people have. Usually by the end of the show, someone makes a compromise because there's no perfect house."
Latest episode "Career Day" of Modern Family parodied realtors (again!)...So funny! But it ain't that far from the truth! I know colleagues just like that. For realz. "Everything I Touch Turns to SOLD" "Real estate's about putting the right person into the right house. I put a spanish couple into a spanish house" LOL!
