Yo! Broker! – The Myths About Celebrity Clients

Your real estate questions answered…

Yo! Broker,

I’ve heard that some real estate agencies have a manual for their agents on how to handle celebrity clients. Is that true?

Dear Marcy,

That sounds like bullshit to me. The truth that most L.A agents will sell a home to a celebrity or two or three (or more) during their career.  And most agents do develop certain cautionary likes and dislikes

Me, I like the regular guy who shows up at my open house, leaves and then I find out his last song has been streamed a gazillion times. That guy is probably in charge of his life.

But when you get the call from the manager or screamer attorney with “few” pre-conditions for showing– you know the coming transaction is likely to be a BPA (big pain in the ass)

We do like business managers. They rarely nickel and dime you, or try to get you to cut your commission. They just want a fair deal for their client.

We’re not too crazy about celebrity girlfriends – usually because they have a real estate license — which they pray they’ll never ever have to use again.

Just be real, we tell our agents. No manual needed.
