I’m a bit behind because I have been keeping one eye on the tragedy at Fort Hood tonight. My mind is a bit distracted by that, and my heart is with those affected. I spent some time today watching the season two marathon since for some reason I stopped watching this show. That marathon really hooked me back in.
I think all of these guys are smarmy but still likeable. Fredrik is diabolical, Ryan shows his cards too quickly. He totally dropped the ball for his client on 250 Bowery last season. He called Fredrik up, who was desperate to move property, and straight up said I have a client who will do anything to get in the building. Who does that? The female brokers tend to walk all over Ryan too, and Fredrik as well to some degree. Luis is young and green and eager. But they are all pretty!
Holy Crap! Ryan’s new listing is SOFA KING cool! A car elevator! A twenty-three million dollar penthouse with a car elevator. Luis’s new listing is too die for as well. I love the custom library that he says is too specific. Then again, I’m a retired reading teacher with a shit ton of books, who likes to travel to weird places and bring back odd objets d’art. I do hate the kitchen. And most of the furniture. But I love the central park west location. Oh God. I was wondering who the weird guy on the couch was. It’s their son, Todd. Who is a realtor with no experience who tried to sell it himself. His mama says to get the listing he has to co-list it with Todd and teach him the ropes. I would have told mommy the spilt would be 80/2o. Luis just agreed to take on an anchor around his neck and spilt the money with him. Oh Luis. So young, so much to learn.
I thought Ryan’s video idea was fantastic. But then we get to budget.
Luis’s albatross is getting a makeover. He has a wallet that looks like a Blimpie sandwich. I love that Luis raps in Spanish. Luis is so cute. Until he stands near normal-sized humans.
I LOVE that Fredrik has a seller that is as big of an asshole as he is. I never knew that was possible. It’s fun to watch a frustrated Fredrik. It always a bad think when the client shows up at the broker’s open. It’s even worse when they follow the broker around. Fredrik has never been to Canada?
Luis has a great attitude about Todd, he really is training him which is sweet. He’s coaching him on the art of the cold call. Um, Todd is the worst cold caller ever. Luis is very good at cold calling. Todd has some social interactions difficulties.
Ryan’s garage in the apartment with the glass floor “sky vault” is SO BEHIND on construction. The movie will have to wait. Fredrik sold the listing with the difficult client. Luis is still working with Todd.
Is it just me or was that so much more fun than the housewives. I’ve got to get y’all off the housewives teat. Let’s move forward to show that don’t make us feel ooky and angry. Life is too short. Walk into the light with me!
