Fredrik’s Time Warner property is not getting any traction at $35 million. When he talks to the owner she wants to raise the price to $42. Fredrik wants to lower the price. The owner is a nut job.
The owner sent a letter to the office firing Fredrik in a not very nice way. Fredrik’s million dollar plus commission is gone. Fredrik was so proud of himself for getting a listing in that building and for that huge amount. He is heartbroken that the listing was taken away. Then Derek tells him he is ready to have a baby. And nothing else matters. It was a very sweet scene, even with the staged babies in the park stuff.
Luis is listing a Harlem home owned by the same people he sold a vacation home to in Puerto Rico last year. Harlem has really taken off. I watched Wendy Williams interview Neil Patrick Harris’ husband and he said they lived there. The apartment is stunning.
Luis is going to have block party in the lovely garden and invite all the neighbors so that his open house attendees can’t get a feel for the neighborhood. I would love to crash this party. The food looks amazing. He gets two decent offers. One for $3mil and one for $3.1mil but the buyers will not come off their $3.5 position.
On the next show, Luis manages to find a client who puts in an off of $3.51! They bid over the asking to make sure they got it! Oh no! The deal has been accepted by the financing is not going through for the buyer. Luis decides to drop the listing because it’s causing friction with his friends and it is overpriced.
Luis has a date with a very pretty girl. Luis has commitment problems. I still don’t know why he is not with his little brunette assistant. Anyway, the date was very sad and short. Luis basically sends the girl packing before she even gets to drink her wine. Luis has trouble with relationships. He says in his talking head that he is still beating himself up for not getting the $3.5 million for his friends the Jones. But I think it is more than that. Or else Luis has a girlfriend and this is all bullshit. I hope it is the latter.
Ryan lists a lovely apartment on the Upper West Side for $5.5 million. It’s overpriced and the apartment has a really bad floor plan because it’s two apartments combined. Plus there is an Asian women representing the buyer who does not tolerate Ryan’s fake flirtation well. She means business.
Ryan is having an open house that focuses on kids. There is a shortage of stroller parking areas. Ryan gets a second low offer and borrows a baby to play the role of his niece as he presents another lowball offer ($4.2) He sells it for $4.5.
Ryan got a job with some Russians but he had to get shitfaced on vodka first. I was distracted during the scene with the Russians but I am assuming Arty is his Russian client. He brings not one but four ladies who appear to be Russian hookers. The hookers literally test all the beds and helped themselves to food in the sellers refrigerator.
Ryan and Fredrik
Ryan and Fredrik are going to exclusively co-list a building with several apartments. Why? Because it makes for good TV I guess. Fredrik has a ton of people in his office that would kill for the opportunity to co-list these properties. They are not agreeing on anything and the co-listing agreement has not even been typed up yet.
Ryan and Fredrik meet for dinner with their respective partners. Fredrik wants to ask Ryan’s girlfriend for “some of her eggs.” That should happen on the next episode. #eyeroll
FYI: Bravo is running a MDLNY marathon this Saturday.
