Chad talks about his "uber" real estate speech, and "chad-er-izing" a listing before an open house!

on Oct 27, 20090

 

I was extremely nervous to give the Scottsdale speech to a room full of colleagues. I must have prepared in front of Victoria and Starla at least 50 times to a point where both of them were sick of hearing it. But it's always important for me to be prepared in anything I do especially speaking in front of a large group of real estate agents.

My speech was about "uber" luxury real estate which everyone loves!!! But any speech can get boring if there is no humor sprinkled into it. At the end of the day, Madison and I are successful real estate agents, but there will be times when we're not going to please every audience we come face to face with. In my opinion, Madison's speech was fine.

It was funny to watch myself "chad-er-ize" the Mar Vista listing before the open house. It's all about getting down and dirty to please the clients! I had a lot of pressure from Sharon to sell her property FAST. I was very relieved when the perfect buyers walked through the door. Watching myself negotiate was intense. The only person I was thinking about during this moment was my client and representing her to the best of my ability which proved to be a success.

I really enjoyed this episode as I was able to show all of you that hard work really does pay off!!!

This is the 1st season of Million Dollar Listing I've watched, & I'm surprised how much I'm enjoying it! I'm not usually a fan of 'real estate/home' shows but I'm really liking this one. And for me the most surprising discovery is how fascinating Chad is...seriously! I just can't put my finger on it, but besides his hair (obviously fabulous) he also has a certain intriguing quality that almost compels me to keep watching! In addition, all 3 of the young men are likeable in their own way; it's clear that despite their differences & disagreements, they all had good upbringing & at heart are good people. Very nice to see on TV!!!

Hey peeps, leave Chad's hair alone. Everyone can't wear the same do & personally, I love it. It DOES look professional as he keeps it looking very nice. And frankly...he's hot!

Chad - You have the best approach of all three of you on the show. You come off as sincere, honest, and trustworthy. Josh is funny, but funny only goes so far. Madison seems cool but you are so detail-oriented. I love the fact that you bring flowers and food to your Open Houses. So what if you're a little obsessive about things; in this market people need a realtor like you representing them. I think you're cute too! You can "Chad-a-rize" me anytime!

Hi Chad. I love watching the show but your inability to hold eating utensils correctly sends me over the edge & I have to change the channel. It probably wouldn't bother me as much from anyone else, but it is completely at odds with your obsession for perfection. Can you maybe take a class or have your mom show you the correct way to wield forks, knives & spoons? Geez...

Chad, I luv u, my husband hates you, so your perfect for interesting conversation in our home. I sold real estate for several years and i see the good and bad you do, but you are successful, so i guess its working!!!Good luck with everything, but I agree with some on your girlfriend...she does roll her eyes a lot with you, so look for the signs, you always know when someone has an alterior motive $$$$ make sure you BOTH love each other. We love your dog, is she the toy variety? or just a pup? We'll be watching!!!

Chad, You are my favorite! You are completely over-the-top, but that's part of your image - you exude confidence and you instill comfort and confidence in your clients! I have no doubt that you will continue to be successful. You have passion and you are extremely smart about business dealings and managing your clients' expectations! I watch the show sometimes just to learn from you about those two things!!! Good luck!

I am not sure what's more creepy about you Chad. Your hair, your weird idea re: a contract for dog ownership, or your lack of interpersonal skills

Hi Chad, what was up with your talk with your Dad? He didn't appear to say anything at all? That bag you keep your Starla in---does it have venting? It looks more like a laptop case & not a dog carrier, can she breath in there?

Chad, I am finally starting to GET YOU! You're like a sleeper in some ways.. you look so unassuming but wow can you negotiate! I also love how you incorporate so many levels of attention into the service you provide to people. Your eye for detailand amazing work ethic make you shine! P.S. I love the slightly longer and a tad wavy/thicker hair..it's really good on you!

CR, What in the wide wide world of real estate were you thinking asking Victoria for 50% ownership of the dog? Sounds like you'd rather sleep with the dog than her. Hmmm...maybe you should get a cat!

CR, What in the wide wide world of real estate were you thinking asking Victoria that? You may just get your wish and you'll be sleeping with the dog instead of her...hmmm you might want to get a cat.

Chad. Please do something with that hair, it's horrible and distracting. Your hair makes you look like a hairy mushroom (cough,gag) it's not cute at all. Have a be nice to Chad day...get a hair cut and a sandwich.

chad, i love the fact you love starla but on last nights episode you kept wanting to put her back in her bag.come on,thats not a place to keep a part of your family by placing starla in a bag all the time.i agree it wasnt a good place to keep starla on the table but you could have said on the ground next to you before you jumped all over your girlfriend about putting starla back in her bag. just being a concerned animal lover

Bravo,

Shame on you of having realtors like Chad and his castmates appear on TV. I would never hire any of these dudes for a real estate transaction.

I would immediately hire Gina from OC Housewives before I would consider the "dudes". Too skinny, total drug issues are obvious

Bravo, stop embarrassing yourselves

Chad, You do a great job at what you do but dont blow it with victoria over a dog. She a nice girl anyone would be lucky to have her, and the dog to.

Tell your girlfriend that it is NOT safe to feed small "Lap dogs" human food because it CLOGS their arteries. For her to compare a human eating human food to such a small dog eating HUMAN food is just ridiculous.

Chad, I got a good laugh watching you pack for your Scotsdale trip. FYI even Scotsdale has mouthwash. Why did you pack the big bottle?

chad i would love to see more of Victoria, or anyone other then you three on the show, to make the show more interesting. We audiance know you three sell million dollar homes, but we also want to see what you guys do in your personal life beside real estate. First season is when we got to know who u guys where. Now, just like the Hills on Mtv. tape ur lives and work its like watching a soap opera but with no acting.

Chad,

Your my FAVORITE Million Dollar Lister! So genuine! Victoria DOES NOT appreciate what she has in you. Find a girl that doesn't roll her eyes at everything you say and do. You deserve better!

Chad;

I love ya dude.. I really dude.. You were my favorite last season. I love your passion with what you do, how you dress and how you conduct yourself daily. I was sympathetic with regards to what you went through as a kid in school. So it was a little dissapointing to hear your comment about Madison, in front of Madison, to the Scottsdale crew.. Even though you said no offense, it was still offensive and reminded me of how the popular kids make fun of the less popular kids.. With someone like Josh, i can see you doing something like that, but, moving forward, think before you say something like that in front of others.. It is hurtful and humiliating.. Madison is a good guy, and so are you.. I have mad respect for you kid..

Chad,

Thanks for opening up your life to my viewing pleasure and humble opinion..... the dog, Starla, should Never be brought into someone's home. Never. If you brought her into my home my 2 Pitt Bulls would go crazy and she would be freaked out. If you brought Starla into my parent's home they would be mad becasue my dad is allergic to fur. What if the dog peed or worse? Some people would never want to even shake hands with you after you touched a dog that you whipped out. I do not think the dancer's mom was honestly too enthralled with you for bringing the dog out and handing it off to her daughter to deal with. Seriously Chad, I can not believe there have been no reverberations of the deal breaking variety over the audacity of bringing a living animal into a stranger's home, that they are trying to sell, no less. Otherwise, I like your tone and demeanor for the most part. The hair is GREAT on you.... but using your client's personal hair products was crossing another boundary line, Chad.

Hi Chad. You bring an honesty to television that is like a precious gemstone, rare. It is so refreshing to see someone of your generation present himself with such integrity. Your conviction to excellence is riveting. I was so elated to learn that Million Dollar Listing was back on television. It was a wonderful surprise. Keep resolute to your professionalism. You are a role model to your peers and actually you shame a lot of others that are beyond your years. I also find you oh so comedic. Hope to see you for a while to come on Bravo. Kudos to them for a great entertaining pick.
