I seem to have missed an episode of MDLNY. I have only seen one, so either I wasn’t paying attention or this is the third episode.
Luis has once again decided to trust Ryan to co-list with him on a $16 million dollar property owned by a developer he wants to do more business with. Ryan agreed to take the listing because he want to get in with the same developer, Soly. He seems to have already taken one of the listings that Luis was supposed to get after selling the initial property. Luis says he will work through the deal with him, but he can’t trust Ryan (duh!) and he questions Ryan’s integrity (duh!!).
Luis is having a Brokers’ Open on the joint listing with Ryan. Ryan comes in acting like an asshole and ordering Luis’s girl around. Production finally lets everyone into the apartment. There are brokers and buyers. I have to say this may be my favorite NYC apartment I’ve ever seen on the show. So many window and the views are AH MAY ZING. I want it. Now I just need $16 million dollars.
Amelia showed up and starts dressing down Luis. Luis politely tells her that it is none of her business. He is furious and wants to fire Ryan. No, Luis. You cannot do that!
Fredrik has a listing appointment for a listing on Bleecker in NoHo. It is actually two listings. One is beautiful and elegantly staged for the potential buyers. They other one is still very much under construction. As in there is more progress going on at Chateau Sheree than at this first floor disaster zone. And I believe they are the same price. There is an ugly white refrigerator and a fugly while stove. This show is getting to be way too scripted. The developer is apparently working out of the first floor mess. There is no way this is real.
It’s Fredrik and Derek’s 5th anniversary. They go out to the Rainbow Room to celebrate. Derek wants to try again. Apparently there is only one girl egg fertilized by Fredrik left and several male embryos. It’s really a lot to figure out. Fredrik has always wanted to have a baby girl. Derek says he needs to be open to having a boy. Then Derek suggests that they put in two girls next one will be biologically Fredrik’s and the other is biologically Derek’s.
Fredrick has a Brokers’ Open in the penthouse on Bleecker that is very nice. Then he has to take them down to the first floor dump. It’s a joke. He does get an offer on the Penthouse for $9 million. That is just $250,000 under the listed price. But it is an all cash offer with a seven day close. The seller likes the offer but does not want the buyer to move in that fast because they need that property to show while the first floor property is being finished. This is not even a real reaction. You don’t delay a $9 million dollar deal for the purpose selling another property. Even the seller can’t drag out this stupid script and takes the deal.
Amelia and Ryan meet for dinner. Ryan tells Amelia all about Luis attacking him. We are getting Ryan the soap opera actor here. Sigh. Why can’t they just be real on these shows? I can see why Ryan didn’t stay employed on a soap opera.
Ryan and Luis have a meeting about Amelia and their problems in general. Ryan says that he should have called Luis. Ryan gives another performance about how he is the victim in all of this. Somehow these two just hug it out and get over it. Because their co-listing is a bit overpriced, Luis and Ryan do a CNBC interview at the property for one of their real estate shows.
The seller says if Luis and Ryan cannot sell the property within 30 days he is pulling the listing and going to rent it. Eleven days later, they get an offer of $11 million. Luis gets them up to $12 million, but this seller is delusional about the value of the property. He fires Luis and Ryan on their listing and fires Ryan on his other listing. Ryan is pissed and is taking it out on Luis.
Next Week: More drama than housewives show. At least no one is faking an illness.
