I don't watch real estate TV.  The few times I tried it was unrealistic.

Hi John -- I have.  

It's not the best representation of our business.   

But there are many "reality" shows that are far worse. 

Editing certainly is not a lost "art".

No I hate those staged shows, when I am not working I like Shark Tank and a very few other shows but not HGTV type shows.

I do, for entertainment purposes only. I am angry at the brand for only portraying young male Realtors when so many in the field are older women.

It's the best "Comedy / Drama" out there John Novak. I don't intentionally seek it out but if I happen to catch an episode I'm all in.

We do on occassion.  There are a few good ones out there but many of them are just so unrealistic for people living in our area.

John Novak No, I don't think it represents our industry in a proper light. People who don't know any better, think this is real.

I do. I actually like LA and Miami. I know it's scripted, but it's entertaining to me.

I love watching Million Dollar Listing. I know it's staged but it's entertaining.

 

I love the homes, the clothes, the watches, the cars, and the confidence. At the end of the day I want to be entertained.

Having been a broker in NYC, I absolutely do watch this show! A great way to veg out after a busy day! But not representative of how most real estate in NYC is sold.

Yes, where else can you watch a show about real estate?  Tough to find.  I agree it seems a bit cheesy, but hey its a real estate baby!!

I don't watch that one, but there are some HGTV and real estate shows that I do like to watch. From one perspective it helps to know what my clients are watching so that I can tell them what is actually real and maybe not so real about the programs they watch.

I watch absolutely NO real estate shows.  I did once many years ago and found it to be not representative of my experiences.  Time waster.
