Last night on Million Dollar Listing Miami our brokers dealt with disappointment – and some handled it with class and some handled it with tantrums more nasty than the ones my toddler throws.
On the other side of the spectrum, Sam DeBianchi continued to bug as she gloated and tried to get camera time by slamming her fellow agents.
Chris Leavitt is working with Senada on a co-listing for a fabulous condo in Boca Raton. He’s calling every agent he knows who can bring the high-end jet set clientele to their open house, which is actually comprised of hosting the Miss Boca pageant. Chris was worried the event wouldn’t be classy – it wasn’t – but it certainly made a splash – bikinis not withstanding – and attracted a lot of attention.
Sam DeBianchi is struggling to unload Gil Dezer's penthouse because every single agent in all of Miami (and in some cases the world) is shouting like a Greek Chorus that it's overpriced. Sam finally seeks advice from Chris Leavitt about what to do. Chris takes Sam to "kangoo", ala running around in moon shoes. It reminded me of something I'd see on Spaceballs. Unfortunately Sam's bouncing boobs were even distracting the gay guy. (Seriously who doesn't wear a sports bra to work out?!)!
Chris advises Sam to confront Gil and her co-lister Rachel about the need for a price reduction and if it doesn't work out, withdraw from the listing. Sam explains that Gil is basically delusional – comparing his out-dated penthouse to what's being built now in terms of value. This is so weird to me – this Gil is supposed to be a famous real estate developer but he's so clueless about pricing his own property and how the market works?
Sam DeBianchi is the first woman to ever join the ranks of the Million Dollar Listing franchise. Breaking into the boys league on Million Dollar Listing Miami, Sam shares her experiences joining the cast and doing reality TV in general.
Sam admits that she had always hoped that she would find her way to reality TV (of course) as her ambitions have already led her to be a real estate commentator on Fox News. However, she was still surprised when Bravo came a'callin! “They essentially sought after the top agents. I was one of them and now I am here. They were also looking for something different,” Sam says.
"I have been a fan of the show since Day 1," Sam admits to The Wrap. "I loved it and I'm obsessed with the show. I think it is awesome. Its funny, but you also see deals."
