Episode Four: Art Imitates Life

Scotty Brown blogs on the drama with Chris Cotazzo.

Here's an example of art imitating life: After Chris Cortazzo's show aired, he and I entered into a deal together. I have been working with a client to purchase a home for 6.5 million dollars. I showed Chris' property to them several times and everything was going great. Then I get a phone call from Chris.

"Scotty, an agent called today to see the house with a client that sounds similar to yours. Can you call me back before I call him back?"

My head started spinning. I called my client. It turns out that he has an investor that wants to see the property with his own agent! Well, my old behavior comes back to me, I want to start threatening everyone. But that doesn't work for me anymore, so I went back to my mantra: "Breathe In Faith, Breathe Out Fear!!"

I called Chris and tried to nip it in the bud. In the real estate world you don't want too many cooks in the kitchen. We spent this huge amount of time going back and forth with who, what, where and when. Total drama!!

I finally got the word that it had worked out. We put together an offer on the place, and started moving forward so that my client could purchase the home. And then out popped the other agent representing the investor...and it is still going around and round -- all over again.

I just had to trust God and present the offer and stay out of the results. I figured I could take my own advice that acceptance is the key to all my problems. Or I could totally ...I don't know ... freak out?

Acceptance sounds better, so now I wait. I'll keep you posted.

Oh! My Sweet Southern Socialite Deal? The one from the show? They've had a change of heart!!

Unfortunately the Wilsons are getting a divorce and now need to sell their home. The whole thing is so sad. We have to respect them both and do what is ever necessary to help.

The market has softened a bit and they are very motivated, so whoever buys this property will be getting an incredible deal!! Becky & Jay want to move on with their lives. She is looking forward to getting a new home. Change is good after a divorce, you know? One door closes and another opens -- it just sucks being in the hallway.
I have been in contact with a lot of people from Chicago who I haven't seen in years. I come from the streets of Chicago, and those are my roots. It's important to me to stay in touch with that. I know I am not "Ivy League" or anything but who I am. I am off the cuff, I am a wheeler dealer man!! I am having fun with it.

One thing I learned early on is street smarts are better than book smart. I would like to hire a college graduate, though. They have good work ethic, and would be pretty helpful around here. I'm they guy who's always out on the streets. I oversee the big picture. I'm the Dream Maker.

Well, thanks again for watching the show, and for sending all of your wonderful emails. I'm very grateful. I have been getting so many great responses from everyone who has been watching the show. It's cool that they've saying one of my lines back to me: "Breathe In Faith, Breathe Out Fear" They tell me that they've made it their mantra now. And I keep hearing things like "Scotty you're the man!!" Having fans like this is the ultimate compliment!!

Until next time,

Your man,

the man of the people,

Downtown Scotty Brown

Jenni: "Crab Meat is Flying!"

Jenni dishes on the Lewis family food fight and the session with Dr. Donna.


At Gramercy Jeff is having naughty night nurse fantasies...
…about who is at my house, which he is happily sharing with the office.
The present state of my private parts is a cheery office topic.
No, no, and NO!
I am serving notice -- there is a new Jenni in town.
The out of control office antics have given a stern face to HR.

Jeff's paint line is flying off the shelves
Will more workers be needed at Jeff Lewis Design?

Lisa and Gary's Calabasas landscaping is a multiple choice challenge.
People need to agree.
Lisa wants us out, but we have plants to place, then plants to move, see the vision, and place somewhere else.
It's all about being specific.
Phase 2, which Lisa said would never happen…
Never say never.
We love you, Lisa!

Jeff doesn't stop encouraging Zoila to twerk at Gramercy. 
He also comments on my current size, shape, and choice of outfit.
Jeffrey is expanding into the area of fashion consultant.
I love my belt, Jeffrey.Chaz Dean's remodel at La Mirada needs to be cold.
The budget for this job is frozen.
Mark the contractor however is feeling the heat.

Andrew is put in charge of applying the "get it done now" pressure.
At La Mirada he finds the contractor MIA and the workers MIA.
Andy hopes this challenge will reveal his managerial skill set.

Jeff wants to take over the decisions regarding Lisa's landscaping.
This Calabasas job needs to be done ASAP.
Vanina's "I bought 'em for her" Double Ds are shared with Lisa.
My HR self is now in full fail zone.

Gramercy is keeping new hire Katrina busy with the paint line.
The work load is huge and she needs help.
Gage likes the good stress of it all.

Scott, Jeff's attorney, plans a big dinner for Jeff's dad's birthday.
He has been Tom's attorney for 30 years.
Jeff thinks a booze cruise around the harbor sounds like a plan.
Newport Beach are you ready for us?
A small problem due to someone's lack of nautical skills…
The boats have escaped!
Jeff blames his lack of censor on his family's standard of behavior.
Two boats and a food fight are their way to party hearty.
Crab meat is flying!
Yes, that is me (now a momma) throwing food and having fun misbehaving.
Even the HR "buzzkill" needs an outlet.
There goes my Mom off camera running to church to light some large candles.
Praying for me that maturity is better late than never.
Andy is now instructed by Jeff to be contractor Mark's worst nightmare.
"I'll crack your balls" is Andy's idea of in charge speak.

Gramercy welcomes new intern Romy to help Katrina.
Hope she is a survivor in Jeff Lewis Design's world of cray cray.
Gage thinks the toilet rules may be a cause for no return.

Mark's young son is visiting the La Mirada job site.
Will he need therapy after watching Andy in full managerial mode? 

Jeff and I interview potential remodel clients in Westwood.
Nikki and Robbie are both dentists and reluctantly agree when Jeff talks price.
The hard, cold, cash, remodel facts can be a dream buster.
Jeff is just the messenger, and it's not always fun. 

Andy is trying to break the new intern.
He wants her gone.
I read Jeff a list with the requirements for successful leaders.
The harsh reality is adult behavior will now be required.

On the La Mirada job site my limits are tested.
You do what you have to do.
Hand washing and dedication are the name of the game.Jeff thinks Andy's babysitting Mark has done the trick and things are moving.
Romy our newbie quit -- she lasted one day.
Everyone does not think it's a beautiful day at Jeff Lewis' office.
Honestly, HR is seriously concerned about the current office atmosphere.

Chaz does a check it out walk through at La Mirada.
Andy gets applause, Jeff is thrilled.

Gramercy is group focused ordering Jeff's undies online.
Jeff thinks his old ones will be a fun face mask for Megan.
She loudly disagrees while ripping them off -- I write Jeff up.
Jeff is informed that his idea of joking is abusive by Dr. Donna his therapist.
We need her help to get the office behavior in sync with sanity.
Dr. Donna tells Jeff he is the leader and needs to set an example.
She tells me to be comfortable stating, "Get out!"
I can do this, Deb to the rescue.
There's a new Jenni at Jeff Lewis Design.
New rules, new day.
Zoila reads her list of complaints: "Please don't call me fat piggy."
Andrew needs to remove the porno he's sharing from his iPad.
Oh no they didn't.
To make it a beautiful day at Jeff Lewis' office is going to take some serious work.
