    The “Million Dollar Listing New York” cast’s antics generate criticism from some in the industry

    From the August issue: Like most reality TV shows, “Million Dollar Listing” is rife with drama, broken allegiances and fake tans. But one critical factor sets the cast of young, intrepid brokers apart from the cast of “Jersey Shore”: They are some of the best in the business.

    “We’re looking for the smartest young agents, who are excellent at what they do, opinionated, and who are not afraid to let us in on the details,” said Jennifer Levy, Bravo’s executive producer of “Million Dollar Listing.” [more]

    As “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles” was picked up for a seventh season, the reality show’s three stars stopped by The Real Deal’s offices to cogitate on matters of a less glamorous nature: real estate attorneys and septic tank woes. More important, Josh Altman of Hilton & Hyland, Josh Flagg of Rodeo Realty and Madison Hildebrand of Coldwell Banker chatted about what a New York City broker needs to know to make it in L.A., and whether the brokerages contemplating a West Coast expansion can beat them on their own turf.

    On “Million Dollar Listing New York” — the second season of Bravo TV’s reality show premiered last night — the properties usually take a back seat to the personalities. Indeed, the time between filming and airing often means the homes have been sold, or pulled from the market, before viewers even see them. [more]

  • Ryan Serhant and the apartment at Loft 25

    “Million Dollar Listing New York” star and Nestseekers broker Ryan Serhant is moving from 20 Pine Street in the Financial District to edgier West Chelsea, where the market is heating up. The reality star told The Real Deal that he would move into his new digs at Loft25 at 420 West 25th Street tomorrow, after more than two years at the Pine Street property.

    “If you’re not selling on Central Park, you’re selling on Tenth Avenue right now. I follow the deals and like to live within the product I sell,” Serhant said. “If you’re a buyer looking in West Chelsea, would you buy from an agent who lives in the neighborhood or one who doesn’t? Knowledge is power in this business and there’s no better way to educate yourself on real estate than by living there.” [more]

    Michael Lorber appears to be house hunting in Philadelphia. The Douglas Elliman broker and former star of Bravo TV’s “Million Dollar Listing New York” was recently scoping out properties on the Main Line, an affluent cluster of towns in Philadelphia’s western suburbs, a source told Curbed.

    Lorber is apparently looking for an investment property in the area and was taken with an eight-bedroom house in Bryn Mawr. The 11,873-square foot home, designed by architect Walter Durham, is listed for almost $5 million and features three fireplaces, a pool and 5.8 acres of outdoor space. [more]

    Marked financial success in real estate was once the purview of older, established agents who had labored for years to carve out a particular territory. But no more. As the Wall Street Journal reported, ambitious young people are an increasing bulk of the most successful agents in the profession, as fields such as finance and law have become less attractive in tough economic times.

    Yuval Greenblatt, an executive vice president at Prudential Douglas Elliman, told the Journal one quarter of his team is now composed of agents under the age of 30. [more]

    Sources spotted Ortiz filming early scenes for season two of the hit show on Wall Street. It was not immediately clear if he is the only new broker joining the show. [more]

    The developers of a Madison Square Park building — slated to be featured on the television series “Million Dollar Listing,” according to reports — have received a $26 million construction loan to proceed with their plans to convert the building to condominiums, The Real Deal has learned.

    Developer David Mitchell, of Mitchell Holdings, secured the loan from Joseph Merrill Capital, a New York-based real estate investment banking firm. Mitchell bought the building, located at 21 East 26th Street at the park’s north end, for $13.2 million last year from the plumbers’ union, according to city records. [more]
