Welcome back to my final blog post of Million Dollar Listing New York Season 2! Time really does fly when you're having fun, and I must say that I owe it all to my fans -- to all of YOU! You've all become a part of me and this whole experience has allowed me to reflect on life in a way that not many get to experience. You've witnessed my successes and highs, but you have also seen me battle my frustrations and fears. So thank you for being a part of this journey and allowing me to grow from my experiences. (I may not be the first to admit it, but I too still have some learning to do.)
So let's get right down to it. . .
The one thing I would change about tonight’s episode is the speech I gave at the open house, which was cut down drastically. Here is the speech I gave, in full:
"Given the apartment we're in, the emphasis on videos, etc., I'd like to show you a scene from a very special movie. Some of you have probably seen this -- most of you haven't.
The scene, which is from a popular cult classic that transcends generations, is very timely, today, in this room of brokers.
The best way I can describe it--– is that it’s about a bunch of guys living in a hole. A hole that breeds envy and betrayal, and yet the men involved, whose tight bonds and hard tools keep them together, provide for each other and satisfy their needs -– just like us in this room.
When you think all of us, as brokers, are supposed to work together and trust each other, you'll see in the scene I'm going to show you, that these guys really take it for one another. In their hole, these guys introduce an unsuspecting civilian, a good person, to their way of life and. . .the acts that follow are nothing short of surprising, and the message I'd like to relay is that no matter how well you think you know the guy next to you, trust no one, otherwise your real estate dreams might, literally, go down the hole.
For most of you in this room, this clip needs no introduction, and for one of you specifically: thank you for coming."
Finally my friends, I want to say thank you once again for enjoying this wild ride with me and for making me feel like the luckiest guy in the world! Your support and encouragement mean everything to me, and remember, this game we play is not for everyone. I want to wish you all the best in all that you do, and I can't wait to have you back! This isn't the end. It's just a chance at a new, brighter beginning. Cheers!
