Ryan Doesn't Really Hate LA
Ryan focuses on the two big positives in this week's episode -- making the deal and hearing from Emilia.
La La Land!!!
This episode is hilarious. I don't remember saying half the things I said about LA, but they are all ridiculous.
I am quite the fish out of water in LA. I look like everyone's Dad with my full suit, tie, and grey hair. I had no idea what I was getting into when I flew out there. And who knew you could get such an amazing house with a pool and those views for $3.5M!?! That's a two-bedroom with no view in NYC that probably needs work.
In LA, no one really cares about comps, logic, or reason. It's crazy. That said -- there are some pretty amazing houses. I spent more time there than you see on the show, so I had time to see other houses and really get a feel for the city. I know it seems like I don't like LA, but by the end of my trip, I LOVED it. That's why we opened an office out there and why I have expanded my team there! Follow my team on Instagram @theserhantteamlosangeles!!!!
The house Light bought, which is still in escrow by the way (being in escrow is an alien phrase to us New York brokers), was pretty amazing. That view and that pool alone sold it for me. It was so tranquil and quiet. I can see why so many people like it up in the hills.
This episode features two big positives for me: I got the deal done for Light AND Emilia called me back and agreed to go to dinner. So what do you think? Do I win her back?
