I can’t believe this is the season finale! I fell a bit behind on recapping with all of the backend stuff going on with the site. I hate that Roh and Justin aren’t getting along!
Andrew’s most expensive listing ever in Tiburon is still a problem. Basically, her son is the problem. Louis’ mommy finally puts her foot down. I’m certainly struggling to warm up to Andrew, but next to Louis and his wired jaw, Andrew seems like a decent human being. I’d love to meet the person who socked Louis in the jaw.
Mama says Louis and Andrew have to do private showing together. This should go well. Actually, Louis keeps talking up Andrew in the showings. Will wonders never cease?
Andrew gets an offer on the house for $17 million. The listing price is 20 million. Andrew pushed for the high price at the time of listing. The seller wanted $18 million. The seller is very attached to the house and is unhappy the buyers want it for an investment property. I’ve never understood this. I get loving your house and wanting the new family to love it, but this is a business transaction. All you should care about is the money you will receive. After that, if the new owners just want to have a rave that ends with burning it to the ground, you don’t even need to know about that. Andrew says something similar.
Andrew and his guy are out golfing while drinking white wine out of glass stemware (as they should but that glass was more suitable for a red wine) when an agent calls with a client who wants to rent the house in Tiburon. Andrew talks to the seller and encourages her to rent the house for $85K a month. Louis wants 100K a month for a year. The deal closes for $100K a month for ten month. Andrew gets $100K in finders fees.
Andrew is building a huge new office and plans to marry the love of his life.
I love Justin’s fire house, but waddling up and down five flights of stairs everyday would not entice me to buy it. Even the in shape San Franciscans ain’t got time for that.
Justin approaches the seller and with the idea of putting in the elevator and making the structural changes to the house and possibly raising the price. The seller says that she doesn’t want to put $100,000 into the property. Justin says she thinks she can add $200K to the price. The seller wants to just pull the listing.
Justin get an offer on Roh’s listing that he trash talked. He tries to work with the co-lister instead of Roh, but that guy is in Peru.
Justin actually moves into a big boy apartment. It’s a one bedroom penthouse with glorious views of the city. I adore this apartment. I love the giant windows that tilt open. the archways, and the views!
Justin is completely wrong to come to an open house and trash the property to the agent. Not professional at all. Roh should not have stooped to Justin’s level either. They spend several minutes having a dick swinging contest about who is the better agent. Justin seems to that Hayward is a bad place to live, but I’ve been told it’s a good family neighborhood and Roh is a family man. Justin on the other hand lives with roommates. This is a ridiculous issue.
Roh sent an email to everyone at the open house apologizing for the unprofessional behavior. Roh gets a full price offer on the house while working out in a boxing ring.
Justin comes to meet Roh at a restaurant to present his offer. Roh has three offers on the property that Justin said was so horrible. There is a bidding war and the best offer at the time Justin came to present was $1.3 million.
Roh lets Justin know right away that he has trust issues doing a deal with him because in their two previous encounters nothing has gone through. Why would Roh want to risk another deal with Justin? Justin storms out and then paces around and goes back in.
When Roh says full ask is two low and there is a bidding war, he gets approval from his client to go to $1.45 million. That’s a big jump, but Justin is not going to drop that number just yet. He counters with $1.35 million. Roh calls the other client and they offer $1.375. Roh has promised his client $1.4 million. They close the deal at $1.4 million. Justin saved his client $50K and feels like he won and Roh got the $1.4 he promised his client and thinks he won. Both will be pissed when they see the episode.
Roh and his wife and his two dad clients take their kids on a playdate. Roh says he loves San Francisco because of all of the different kinds of people learning from each other.
I wish this season would have been longer. I really hope we get a season two and I wouldn’t change one thing about this cast. I strongly recommend catching up on this show if you didn’t watch. I often place it at the end of my task list because y’all don’t seem to be watching or interested. I’m telling you, it’s one of the best shows on Bravo. If we don’t get a second season, it’s your fault we can’t have nice things.
