The stars of the upcoming Bravo reality show “Million Dollar Listing Miami” joined dozens of friends and colleagues on South Beach Wednesday night to celebrate the premiere of the first episode, which airs on June 25.

As well-heeled party-goers sipped wine and knocked back mojitos, cast members Chad Carroll, Samantha DeBianchi and Chris Leavitt strolled the red carpet and posed for photos inside Pearl at Nikki Beach.

The trio beat out other Miami luxury real estate professionals after a year of multiple interviews and vetting by producers of the show, which has featured brokers selling high-end properties in New York and Los Angeles in past seasons. The series revolves around the work lives of young, energetic and successful brokers. According to Bravo, viewers will get an inside look at selling glamorous real estate in South Florida and the people tasked with making those deals happen.

Privage Condominiums and Warren Henry Auto Group sponsored Wednesday’s bash.

Carroll, executive vice president at Douglas Elliman, told The Real Deal that being featured on “Million Dollar Listing Miami” is an extraordinary opportunity to gain exposure for his business.

“It’s a chance of a lifetime,” he said. “You are going to see the selling of the Miami lifestyle and everything that comes along with that.”

Leavitt, Carroll’s co-star and colleague at Douglas Elliman, told TRD viewers can expect a “totally different spin on this genre of television.”

“Million Dollar Listing” fans will see a lot of drama, sexiness and fun, he said.

“We are genuine characters,” Leavitt said. “We are not acting. We are ourselves at all times. It’s real and raw.”
