Selling Sunset

Off topic, but has anyone seen the new Netflix series "Selling Sunset"? It looks like Million Dollar Listing LA had a baby with Housewives of Beverly Hills. One real estate agency owned by two guys whom also happen to only employ attractive and catty women agents. 

Not wanting to hi-jack this thread, but I'm REALLY hoping someone starts a thread on this show. I just started watching this because I was looking for something mindless to entertain myself with. It's jaw-droppingly tacky and delightfully hate-watchable! All the female realtors look like unemployed porn-actresses (which they may be). Sadly not the kind of LA architecture I'm interested in looking at though. No old-school mansions or homes with any character. It's all massive glass boxes perched on hillsides that look like they should be inhabited by Bond villains.

I just finished watching this and agree with everything you have said. Can someone start a thread? 

Still need to watch the Dubai episode of Million Dollar Listing.

You can easily start your own thread under the new system.  I just did one last week for the new show Gone.  (I recommend that to anyone who used to like Without a Trace, btw.)

OK, I was intrigued enough to watch the first 3 episodes....and  I wish I hadn't bothered. What a bunch of self centered egomaniacs. Just an annoying show all around

Finished as well. Biggest problem was just how fake, scripted and produced it was. I probably would have enjoyed it more if they just shot it like a regular scripted dramedy. Way too catty for so called professionals in the business world. The mumbly boyfriend was the worst. 

The Oppenheimer twins were on MDL a few seasons ago but I dont really remember them. Hated their open office filled with Restoration Hardware airplane desks. How tall are they? 5' 4" maybe?

Not enough real estate porn. Maybe 20% of the show dealt with properties. 

Most of the women were cringe worthy or just hateful. I did like the Israeli women the best. Felt super icky how guys would hit on her at showings even when she said she was married. The new girl wasn't bad either. 

The final fight, ugh. Even MDL falls into that trope. 

One big ethical question though. When they show a negotiation between seller and buyer when they represent both, should the agents be in the same room sharing info? On MDL they're always in different rooms and dont mention how high or low their client's actual bottom line is. On Sunset, they shared and used that information to match up their offers.

I loved how all the women introduced themselves as, “This is why I’m not superficial and basic” and then just shows them being superficial and basic the rest of the series. I actually like most of them, except Davina and I have mixed feelings about Christine. I think Mary is gorgeous and sweet, but when all you can say about your fiancé is how hot he is that’s probably not a long-term thing. They have zero chemistry together and he has zero personality. 

Got to the end and had to do a double take. I was surprised where they left things. I expected some wrap up of the season or some advancement of season long plot lines (an update on the $40m property or sign offs on what the cast was doing/working on). Instead they just ended it like any other episode. 

Cute enough. And I’m glad Netflix is getting into reality tv

Thought Davina was awful. She seems like a miserable and unhappy person. She is obviously threatened (jealous) by Chrishell who appears to be a happy person in a solid marriage.

I don’t understand how Davina is a realtor. She’s always condescending, dour, and never smiles. I’m not saying she needs to be fake or peppy or happy all the time, but she’s in sales and so a little charm is needed.

Dour is a good word to describe her. She is a major B. Anyway, this show is a little odd with the two bald brothers who appear to be quite tiny and then their "harem" of statuesque, slightly porn starish agents. I thought Chrishell dressed the most normal and actually wore some cute dresses. The agent with the hockey player boyfriend (now in Sweden) is a former playboy playmate, I read. Mary and her pastry chef boyfriend seem to barely be able to communicate with one another. Does she understand half of what he says and does she even care? I don't find him attractive. He is so hulk like. Mary's face seems to be full of some bad fillers, botox or bad plastic surgery.

I'm not normally one for reality shows (I never watched The Hills, or Laguna, which were done by the same creator), and I only thought I'd watch an episode or two. Well, this show turned out to be the television equivalent of a can of Pringles. Trashy, unhealthy and addictive! I blew through all the episodes in one weekend. It's fake, staged, ridiculous, yet way more entertaining than I expected.

I had a tough time distinguishing the realtors at first, as they all looked like escorts. It was bizarre seeing the two tiny bald men presiding over a harem of silicone amazons.

I think Chrishelle is supposed to be a sort of proxy character for the viewing audience - the newbie coming into an established workplace and trying to figure out the dynamics.  More thoughts on this silly show later. I'm amazed that I have so many thoughts on something so incredibly dumb.

To be fair, English isn't his first language. It's quite hard to be charming and funny in a different language and he obviously hasn't grasped it yet. For all we know, he could be outgoing and have more of a personality with his own friends or colleagues. But I do agree that Mary is choosing him for the wrong reasons and he's not a long-term prospect.

I liked Christine for a while and then realized that she is sometimes the very thing she calls other women—two-faced. She spends some alone time with the women to get more info out of them (probably egged on by the producers), shares stories with the women and seems like she relates, but then goes on the attack when one aspect isn't to her liking or something rubs her the wrong way.

Davina is the worst. She's just a bummer and full of jealousy.

Thoughts on the "cast":

How do the employees tell the tiny twin titans of the Oppenheim group apart? They look identical to me. Maybe no one cares? Do you think they ever swap just to mess with the realtors?

Christine: the bitchy queen bee. For someone who looks like she's 100% plastic above the knees, she sure is judgemental about other people's appearances. Everyone is always telling her how gorgeous she is. I think the operative word might be "was", prior to fillers and silicone. Clearly she is insanely jealous of Heather the playboy bunny realtor, because she's more naturally pretty (even for a playboy bunny). I found myself getting tired of watching her flip her thin lank peroxided hair around.

Mary: surely her supposed romance with the himbo pastry chef is totally manufactured for the cameras, right? No one could be that completely delusional in real life, right? He's such a stunned banana - even for a 25 year old with limited English, he seems incredibly dim. Do they even talk?

Heather: Seems innocuous, but sorry hon, your hockey player boyfriend just isn't that into you.

Maya: the only seemingly normal likeable one in the bunch. Hope all goes well with her pregnancy.

Davina: Just the WORST. Shit-stirrer extraordinaire. Every one kept repeating "oh, she's just direct". She's the opposite of direct - a snake-in-the grass who enjoys sitting back and watching the catty chaos she's instigated. She has such a weird flat affect, and seems charmless and humourless. My guess is that she's totally boring in real life, so they wrote her in as a villainess character.

These women's manicures probably cost more than my monthly rent.

I was agog at the sheer grotesqueness of the 40,000 (?) square foot behemoth that the brothers are building up in the hills. It looks like a shopping mall. City council is no longer allowing anything of that size to be built there. GO CITY COUNCIL! YOU RULE!!!

Watching this has taught me that I really do not like "hip" California modern architecture. All boxy/glass/sharp edges. I was hoping to get a peek at some different styles of homes, but they were all pretty much the same: not homes to live in, but douchey show-places that scream "I have a shit-ton of money, folks!".

The only two homes I liked were the one that Mary was fantasizing about buying for herself to live in with her French cream-puff (it was a bit plain on the exterior, but the interior was lovely), and an older traditional Spanish style one that Maya took Chryshell through. The rest can tumble into the San Andreas fault as far as I'm concerned. Seriously, does it not strike anyone as incredibly stupid to build homes perched on hillsides like that in an earthquake zone?

End of snark for now!

Couldn’t agree more! Didn’t mean to blame the guy there, I actually think Mary should put in some effort to learn French. But all she seems interested in is how hot he is. And I thought it was unfair to pick a fight with him about the wedding. That might be a cultural thing, I don’t know if French men think it’s their job to plan a wedding. Instead, they all turned it into he doesn’t want to get married. 

And I almost posted the exact comment about Christine. If she has a point to make she uses that to justify doing and saying whatever she wants. Even in her “apology” to Chrishell she demands Chrishell look at her (and let’s everyone know all her attempts at contacting her through social media). That was neither the time or the place for that apology, and an apology needs to be on Chrishell’s terms NOT Christine’s.

Ha! As I was reading about your dislike of LA homes all I could think was, “But what about Mary’s dream home and that Spanish house!!!” Those houses were great. Not sure my feelings on the bachelor pad they tried showing the surgeon, but my ears did perk up when they said it had its own hiking trail. If I had the money I might buy something like that just for the trail.

That particular house left me cold, but the trails outside were neat looking. If I were to live in LA, my fantasy home would be either a craftsman or a cottage built in the interwar years. I'd consider a spanish-style too if it had charming architectural details. Something with citrus trees in the backyard.

Now my internet pages are filled with ads for LA real-estate!

When Christine took her old classmate/want to date her guy to the 40 million dollar house, we had to look him up. There is no way he could afford such a home. If his early app sold for that much, I think he would be at a much higher position at  facebook. C'mon, he knew we would google him! That was just as fake as the mystery buyer from China with no financial profile (I get them not wanting to give details if such a person existed, but they could have fake conversations, or pass a paper with his info that we can't read, or some other fake method.)

Despite that,  this was a very binge-able, amusing show.

I found it interesting that the brothers are trying to increase their commissions rather than decrease them. I have a feeling all these rich realtors are in for a rude awakening in the not too distant future. Technology is rapidly catching up to them and buyers and sellers have way more access to information than we used to. I’m not saying brokers will be obsolete, but I don’t see them making MORE in commission. There will be tech companies that automate a lot of their job and charge 1-2% commission or flat rate fees for houses at certain price points. Plus, these reality shows don’t do the industry any favors. Nobody who watches these shows thinks these ppl are worth what they charge (don’t get me wrong. Realtors work very hard, just not doing the kind of bs these shows depict).

I'm in the middle of ep 5. I don't really care for the twins. I'd never want to do business with Christine or Davina. 

Most of these houses are cold boxes. More like a doctor's office than home. I'd love to find the $40 mil house on Google maps though I think it's ugly.

Why are these women (minus Chrishell) dressed like they're going clubbing when they're at the office?

Mary's BF is drab.

Watching the episode where Davina starts stirring up shit. Her exact comments to Mayra about Chrishell, “If she feels so strongly about it she should talk to Mary, and not behind her back,” as Davina talks shit behind Chrishell’s back rather than confront her. Nice. 

And I know it’s fake, but Christine actually calls her client a bitch on the show. How professional 👌. I hope clients turn her down as a broker specifically because they don’t want her talking shit about them if she represents them.

The online reviews for the Oppenheim Group are now mostly from people that have watched the show. They aren't exactly friendly mostly commenting on how unprofessional they are portrayed.

Having a hard time finding that $40m house. Nothing on their website about it so I was thinking they lost the listing. But searching for any homes in the $40m range still didn't turn it up in active or recently sold. Anyone else have luck?

I like Maya and Chrishell (I remember her on "All My Children") the best and Heather & Mary seem sweet enough. I don't see how H and M handle those long distance relationships. I find myself wanting to fast forward during Mary and Frenchie's scenes. Sorry, forgot his name. Can't see them lasting. If I were to use this realty group, I'd ask for Maya or Chrishell. It seems weird that they don't have individual offices in the space. Sensitive info could be talked about and I can't imagine talking to a client with other people having phone or office convos in the background.

My understanding from the show is that the brothers were actually developing that property themselves and then wanting to sell it. Maybe it hasn't been formally listed yet? Or maybe it's all fake for TV? Who knows.

I thought that office setup was odd, too. Maybe that’s just staged for the show and they have real offices in back? One person on their phone fills the office, let alone all of them trying to talk over each other all day. You’d lose your mind. They had something similar on MDL NY where one of the guys CRAMMED a bunch of agents into a tiny office. But it must just be for effect.

Agreed - I think it's just so they can film catfights more easily. If they do another season I'm really hoping Davina gets her ass handed to her at some point.

Who does Maya look like?  It's driving me absolutely bonkers.  A famous, beautiful woman that looks like her, especially in the mouth area?

Christine just looks like young Jerry Hall, right?  Because she's SO familiar to me too.

It's so funny that the show pays no attention to Davina, I figured it's because she's not as attractive?  That's mean I know.  Now that I've watched the show a bit more, Davina's not unattractive.  She actually resembles Mandy Moore, but kind of like without the cheekbones.

1)  Telling everyone about Maya's pregnancy

2)  Being judgemental towards Davina about the charity - I would be so offended.  She doesn't even know Davina, maybe Davina DOES do charity in her spare time.  That was really stupid.

I'd be SO happy with the beautiful 25 year old Romaine wanting to marry me but not care at all about the wedding.  Mary can send him over to me I'm fine with it.

I think she actually looks like a doppelganger for Gwyneth Paltrow except with darker hair and brown eyes. I guess it speaks to how likeable she comes across on screen, because I like what I have seen so far of Maya, and I LOATHE Gwyneth Paltrow.

I agree on this - Chrishell needed to quit talking and just drop that topic. That being said, Davina is a total asshole.

The brother’s strike me as the sort who would have tried to trick Heather into having sex with the twin she wasn’t dating.

Yes, THIS. I don't get it. He does absolutely nothing for me. I don't think he'd do anything for me if I were 25 again either. Independent of language issues, It's like the lights are on, but nobody's home. If Mary's genuine about him, she should make the effort to learn some French.

I still have a few eps left, but it's crazy that these women would show up to meet a client as if they are going clubbing. Please tell me this is just for the show. Not all of their clientele are single dudes on the make (not counting creepy guy that Maya had to deal with). Can please someone tell them that you can be classy and sexy at the same time? Maya pulls it off and for the most part Chrishell does to. Christine is the worst offender. If she showed up to meet me at a house, I would turn and find another realtor. 

Since I'm jaded and don't believe anything on reality shows like this, is Maya really pregnant? I don't mean to be insensitive, but I don't put much past producers of these things. If she is pregnant, I wish her a healthy and smooth term!

I don't like Chrishell

1)  Telling everyone about Maya's pregnancy

 I was browsing Instagram after watching the show and seeing if I could figure out if there was fake stuff on the show, and it turns out that Chrishell was manipulated by the producers. They led her to believe that everyone already knew, which resulted in her making that toast. 

Also, Davina and Christine are so fake. Last I checked, they had their comments set to approved only. I'm guessing they were getting a bit of hate. However, Christine let a comment through of someone saying they were sick of Chrishell playing the poverty card, and Christine also replied to the comment. She didn't reply to the poverty part of the comment, but that just really cemented in my mind that she is absolutely vile and it wasn't producer manipulation that made her look bad.

I was wondering if the producers pulled Davina and Christine aside and said before taping, "Will you be willing to be the villains of the show?" It sounds like they really are that unpleasant.

As far as Chrishell and poverty, from what I've read, she did grow up in dire circumstances. It's probably hard to get over especially when she's been an actress and now selling multi-million dollar homes.

I get such a weird expressionless monotone vibe from Davina, and wondered the same thing - if the Producers were just giving her something to do by taking on the role of company villainess/asshat. Christine is so ridiculously over the top, I wondered if it was also for show, but it sounds like people's social media investigations are turning up some not so flattering things about either of them.

I understand Chrishell discussing her impoverished past in one-on-one conversations with others, as it probably feels like she's unburdening herself and being honest about where she comes from.  But beyond that, she just needs to dial it down and give it a rest (unless someone asks about it directly), otherwise she's going to wind up providing the cattier women with more ammo.

Just for funzies, I actually went on the Oppenheim site to look at their current listings. I'm surprised that they don't seem to have much listed at the moment. Mind you, the things they do have on their site are multi-multi million dollar homes, but I expected to see more. Most of them are the typical boxy glass & steel homes featured on the show, but they did have one  heritage mansion that had been built in a Moorish style. I didn't care for the bland furnishings inside, but it has the most spectacular stained glass windows throughout! (listed at 4+million). Check it out if you're into luxury homes with a bit of character!

Rewatching the series and Christine looks really bad. Even ignoring all the office drama she comes off the most unprofessional. In the first episode she calls a client a bitch behind her back, loses a listing to Chrishell, can’t get access to a home she’s showing, consistently shows her clients homes that don’t match what they’ve told her they want, and instead of listening she complains that they’re idiots for not wanting the “sexy” house. I’m not even sure she closes a deal in the whole series. I realize there’s no such thing as bad publicity, and that these shows are mostly fake, but there are a million real estate agents in LA, why pick her? Even if you’re a fame whore, there are a dozen LA agents with shows right now.
