‘Luxe Listings Sydney’, Where Three Real Estate Colleagues Buy And Sell Exclusive Properties In Australia’s Poshest Area

Luxe Listings Sydney is just about how the title describes it; it’s a actuality present the place three of the highest individuals within the Sydney actual property sport purchase and promote properties within the metropolis’s unique jap suburbs. These are properties that may go upwards of the low eight figures. It’s Amazon’s first massive entry into the true property actuality present style that currently has been dominated by Netflix.

Opening Shot: Photographs of the Sydney Opera Home and the Sydney Harbor Bridge, then scenes of the primary season of Luxe Listings Sydney.

The Gist: Gavin Rubenstein is aware of what’s at stake within the East Sydney market, so he gathers his workers at a property in Dover Heights he’s trying to checklist for an eye-popping $12 million. He’s celebrating the primary anniversary of his agency, and he’s happy with what his staff has achieved up to now, promoting over $500 million of properties in that first yr.

His pal Simon Cohen is a purchaser’s agent, who represents massively rich shoppers and excursions homes on their behalf. He involves the property in Dover Heights and actually likes it, although he provides his regular checklist of shortcomings, together with the truth that the infinity pool overlooks the road. He tells Gavin he received’t provide greater than $9 million for it.

D’Leanne Lewis has been on this marketplace for many years and has been the highest vendor at her company for 18 years working; she tells a possible new assistant to not give in to the glitz of the enterprise, clearly referring to Gavin and his workers, with the customized fits and glossy sports activities automobiles. She reveals Simon a property referred to as “The Artwork Home” and he tells her that the kitchen is “pedestrian.”

Simon takes two of his staffers to his father or mother’s home for Shabbat dinner, as a result of he considers his staffers to be household. However all they do is get on his case about settling down.

Simon is buddies with each Gavin and D’Leanne, however the relationship between the 2 brokers is cordial at finest. Gavin tells his brother/enterprise companion whereas on a shirtless jog that he doesn’t think about D’Leanne his major competitors and that her time has handed. These tensions come out on a yacht get together Simon throws to have fun his agency’s tenth anniversary. D’Leanne, who seems to be like she desires to be wherever however on that yacht, will get into it with one in all Gavin’s brokers about poaching one in all her listings, then complains to Gavin that she doesn’t like his slick nature. She mainly says, “I’ll kick your ass,”… in actual property, after all.

What Exhibits Will It Remind You Of? Selling Sunset crossed with Million Dollar Listing franchise and the brotastic Netflix collection Million Dollar Beach House.

Our Take: Luxe Listings Sydney seems to be for all of the world like a normal actual property actuality collection, with pulsating dance pop and hip hop punctuating intersititals of the bustling metropolis in between scenes. The three major “characters” are pleasant however are in competitors with one another; even Simon, who’s on the customer’s finish of the transaction, is competing as a result of he desires to spend the least of his shoppers’ cash as attainable whereas Gavin and D’Leanne wish to get probably the most.

However, by balancing the slick Gavin with the family-oriented Simon and the super-pragmatic D’Leanne, the present veers away from the douchenozzlery that may dominate different reveals like this. Gavin can say all he desires that he doesn’t think about D’Leanne critical competitors, however she’s on the prime of her occupation for a purpose. And Simon feedback on why the 2 butt heads, as a result of they’re each on the prime of the heap.

And Simon himself is stuffed with surprises. Positive, he acts like a slick operator, however then he’s near his mother and father. He’s a purchaser’s agent, so he’s not attempting to oversell one thing, like Gavin does to him. He’s there to seek out the issues within the seemingly gleaming property, one thing that we discover refreshing; it’s normally the dour shoppers themselves which are in that place on these reveals.

We additionally appreciated D’Leanne knocking Gavin and his slicked-back workers down a couple of notches. It reveals that, whereas Gavin has the products, he’s not prime of the heap simply but. That’s the place the drama will seemingly be. Is it going to be drama like we see in Promoting Sundown? In all probability not. However seeing all of the brokers get together with one another and simply present beautiful properties would have been boring as hell.

Intercourse and Skins: Apart from a celebration visitor getting right into a one-piece and dunking herself within the yacht’s scorching tub, there’s nothing.

Parting Shot: The public sale for the Dover Heights property begins, with the auctioneer telling the gathered bidders that they discovered the suitable property that afternoon.

Sleeper Star: We like Tammy Soglanich, an affiliate agent at Simon’s agency. On the get together, L’Deanne jokingly tries to lure her to her company. And Tammy says proper in entrance of Simon — with love! — that “typically he drives me nuts!”.

Most Pilot-y Line: Severely, all of the male brokers at Gavin’s company look precisely the identical. And when one in all them talks about shopping for a Porsche with three different d-nozzles, I assumed that was Gavin speaking.

Our Name: STREAM IT. Did we want Luxe Listings Sydney not function the identical previous brotastic brokers doing brotastic issues? Positive. We’d additionally just like the present to be a bit extra numerous than it’s. However at the least it presents counterpoints to the stereotypical slick high-end actual property agent that make the present at the least a bit extra fascinating.
