Bravo has expanded its Million Dollar Listing franchise – my favorite – with Million Dollar Listing Miami. The hot new show kicks off Wednesday, June 25 – and I seriously cannot wait.
"With a surging market in South Florida, properties are selling for record rates and agents are cashing in on massive commissions like never before," says Bravo. "The mansions are bigger, high-rises are taller, amenities are more lux, and locals have access to amazing views, beaches, and a lifestyle unlike anywhere else in the world. Business can get heated as the brokers attempt to make a name for themselves and outshine their competition by landing the next big listing."
Million Dollar Listing Miami features Chad Carroll, Samantha DeBianchi, the franchise's first female agent, and Chris Leavitt. Check out the cast bios and photos and the trailer below.
