Random and scattered:
I have just started season two of this sort of trashy show/not creepy trashy show. It is almost like a Knots Landing soapy good mess. I do watch for the houses shown and loved the house that Mary said was her dream house, the one with the ivy on the front. Her mannerisms, pointed out here by a poster, were in full display during the sit down part with the homeowner to pitch for being the agent.
I quoted the post to comment that I agree completely. I came in watching thinking that these twins were bozos. I quickly pushed that away when I noticed that the twins don't really play around with the business and are very interesting, business wise and with their bachelor ways. And they seem genuinely nice while not being pushovers. I have loved every interaction they have had when talking business with any of the ladies. Your instance above, they were with Heather but they were also with Amanza and it was Amanza that the twin was teaching. And she did need teaching on the differences of what was there versus what she thought was there since she pointed out the doors were pocket doors and he said that they were less expensive accordion doors, which would bring down the price point of the home. The doors, the wine cooler that was not a wine cooler but a wine display, the floor planks being the same length (not just wider) were all details that would get overlooked by a dazzled by the glam uniformed buyer. And back to the nice part, he was really teaching her, not mocking or belittling her.
Another instance of what I like when the twins are involved in the real estate stuff:
When Davina brought to one of the twins the 80 plus million dollar listing, I rewound and watched it a couple of time just to absorb the information the twin was giving out on how to price a home. (Sorry for the use of "twins" instead of their names. I haven't gotten a good take on telling which twin is which when they have scenes. I am going to make a point of knowing the difference between them going forward. I still don't know if it is the same twin who built a house and also has the condo where Heather thinks she has a room. And who has the little house where they had a party at last year.) Then, in a talking head I think, he explained how the marketing money works, which is a question I have pondered while watching the MDL shows. He also explained the nuances of even having a high dollar listing, how it would not be a good fit for his business model. The scene did not play out like Davina and Christine said it would, that his ego would be involved. He laid out the facts and gave her the go ahead to have a listing that wasn't ridiculously priced, while also being higher than his highest listing (busted their ego theory). I like Davina and her pot stirring but she irked the hell out of me with her simpering pitch to the seller. I was expecting a cliched tissue to be offered to her from the eye rolling seller's assistant.
I don't get caught up in the class envy/haves have nots side of things when watching glitzy shows so I am completely happy and understanding of the $200,000 Bronco. His Bronco is everything Bethenny Frankel wants her SG monstrosity vechicle to be. (Sorry, I hate BF and can't resist a put down when given the opening. Gah, boo, yuck, get gone you monster!)
My first thought when I saw Christine, and made me like her, was she is playing her life as Brianna from Grace and Frankie. Then it was yep, for sure, when she came back in season two with her geek fiance. That's not a dig, Brianna was my favorite character on that show. The actress nailed that part. I like a brittle lady.
