Chad Rogers gives the scoop on working with Cuttino Mobley.

on Aug 26, 2008

Victoria blew up at me and told me that no one tells her what to do. She was 100% right, and justifiably angry. I should have just let it go, taken her advice and stopped gambling for the night.

To make matters worse, I had arranged to meet Cuttino Mobley in Vegas to look at several leases. I heard at the last minute that Lauren, Cuttino's assistant, was going to fly up to Vegas instead of Cuttino to preview the leases I had arranged for him to see. The vacation was really turning into a nightmare. First Victoria and I got into a major argument and then Lauren notifies me that she was coming to Vegas instead of Cuttino. I wasn't even making a commission on any lease I found for Cuttino, because I couldn't use my real estate license in Nevada. I was just doing him a favor, which is sometimes what you have to do to keep a client happy.

I like Lauren, but I know how intense she can be and I was hoping that the day would go smoothly. Victoria and I picked up Lauren in the limo that I had originally planned for Cuttino. Not only did Lauren rip on the two houses that I showed her, but she yelled at the limo driver! The trip was turning out to be a real disaster.

Even though she was holding in her emotions, I could tell that Victoria was really upset with the entire situation. All I wanted to do was wake up from this Vegas nightmare. Talk about reality! I was afraid that I was going to lose both Victoria and Cuttino's listing in Beverly Hills, which made me feel vulnerable, and that's something I don't like. You know the saying, "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas?" Well I have news for you, what happens in Vegas didn't stay there - my mistakes and bad luck followed me all the way back to L.A. I had no idea if Victoria was going to break up with me. I don't know what I would do if I lost her. I felt like my world was caving in. I was happy to get the listing from Cuttino, but it didn't compare with the cost of losing Victoria.
