Being in Real Estate Sales I’m constantly asked if I watch Million Dollar Listing. My answer is no. I sell in Southern California. I sell million dollar homes. I show them, list them and sell them. I know many agents who, like myself, sell the same.
We are nothing like those agents portrayed on television. We are down to earth, caring people. We don’t drive Ferraris, we wear regular clothes and we don’t constantly yell at people on the phone. We have families, we are involved in our community and we volunteer for charities. We help first time buyers buy an entry level $300,000 home with low down payment financing. We also sell wealthy people $3,000,000 homes for all cash.

Reality TV is anything but reality. Television needs ratings to sell commercials. Real life doesn’t get the ratings sensationalized life does. I drive a plug-in hybrid Ford Fusion.

Life is good, just plain and simple yet very very good.
