Mike explains why a bus wrap is important to his business.

on Nov 27, 20130

Negotiating is in my blood! I'm a Persian Jew... it's what my DNA is made up of. The more you save, the more you have. The bus wrap is an awesome idea -- it will generate the buzz that I want. $35,000 to have my face, website, and Twitter handle driven around all the affluent areas in Souther California is a small price to pay for the amount of publicity it brings in!

Reza should take note on how a real businessman negotiates! He's too busy fooling MJ into going camping with him and his Gucci loafers though. Poor MJ -- he could of at least told her to bring some comfortable clothes. She's such a good sport to put up with his BS!

GG and her family shocked me with how comfortable they seem with roughing it. That's awesome! GG knows her way around the campsite. I was very impressed at how easily and quickly she got the tent up. You go girl!

Mike $35,000 was too much money to spend for thta type of advertising.  You should have done something in the $15,000 range. Reza is not a good freind to you.  I think I would drop him before you guys become enemies.

Sorry Mike. I have to agree with Mom. Go back to law school.

doesn´t matter what mom says.  Not being a lawyer or doctor is not a mistake (like she said in the pastry place), is just a different path not a mistake.  Giving up on your dream or giving up on your happiness is a mistake.  Keep the good work Mike. You are on your way!!!

You're a nice guy Mike, but I don't think your high-end clientele spends too much time looking at the sides of buses. Using that money in Beverly Hills magazines would have made more sense.

Good Luck Mike - Stay true to your heart and get away from Reza!  He is bad news for sure!  This is coming from Lucky8 wishing you nothing but good luck with your new girl and new life without Reza!  Please dump him before he hurts you or someone else you love - he is toxic for real!

This is really for REZA but since his low-down dirty, stank butt is too afraid to write a blog because he knows everyone is going to jump on him with insults, I'll have to write it here.  Mike, if you are reading this or if anyone of the Shah's casts members are reading this, make sure that Reza reads it.  Reza, you suck!  You are the main reason that a lot of people are turned off from gay guys - it's your personality!  While you think you are gorgeous, your actions make you look just like a prick head!!!  I'm serious!  You bring Lilly into this group of rejects - all of them have some kind of issue except Mike and now you turn on him too.  What is it with Persians, since you always preference your statements with "Persians this or Persians that".  I hope all Persians are not stupid like you.  I don't mean stupid with regards to how much you sell real estate, . . . . I mean stupid for how much you sell your friends down the road???  You are a real jerk.  How could you bring MJ to GG's family camping trip knowing that MJ insulted GG so badly???  That was not the place to try to have them make up.  You forced that troll MJ on GG's family and that was not right!  If GG was upset with MJ, don't you think some of them would be upset with her too.  Her sister said that she couldn't be friends with anyone who did that to her.  You didn't care though - I guess that's how Persians are!  You should just hang out with your own kind.  You are giving Persians a bad name!

Mike sooner or later you will have to stop just being "ON" the show, and actually be "IN" the show. You are always looking the other way just so you don't have to confront your friends on their behavior. You looking the other way, or just going about your stuff, isn't making you look any better, it is making you look like a weak, fool. Like you just are scared of MJ, to tell her what you really feel, or or Reza to get his butt in and do what he said. You stood up once when your family was spoken about, and said Lily's party would of been better with MJ there. But you know you should of said something else.

nose to the grindstone, Mike, hopefully that bus wrap gets you some leads, but the work will have to be done by you!

You seem to be a nice guy with hopefully a good heart.  Your fellow cast mates appear to be shallow people with empty shells.   I wish the best for you and your beautiful girlfriend.  Hang in there, and things, with the grace of God, will work out in your favor.

Mike,

I would also appreciate mentioning that it would be great if Shahs of Sunset could post or talk about the food on their show. I would love the name of the food and recipes. I have to be honest looking at the food and trying to figure what type their eating is the best part of the show for me. I want to come through the TV and be a part of the show just to try the food.

Great job on the bus advertisement. Reza should have taken you under his wing and showed you the ropes. I am really very surprised that someone who is close to you and has no siblings himself doesn't get that.  I think if he would work with you, you would both benefit. I don't think you would expect him to hand over all his clients, but to put some real effort into helping you take off. That's what friends do. Hopefully he'll see the light.  You and Jessica look great together. She seemed to really care about the success of your parent's party. Very sweet. Sounds like wife material to me!

SCREW REZA - You need to be on Million Dollar Listing - the other Bravo show!  LOOK INTO IT and leave Reza in the dust!!  DO IT

I like Mike, but I have to agree with his mother.  A bus wrap may be out of the box, but it's not going to help you sell someone's home esp. when you lack the experience to match pedigree.  35K could have been spent smarter and in various, better ways from a marketing standpoint.  I wish him the best of luck.

Why wasn't Reza with you to do this?  Manam Keylimiam, and know the Persian culture very well! Is Reza splitting the tab with you on this?

I still like you after all this time, I sometimes think you are a little full of yourself but deep down I believe you are just a nice kid who wants to make his parents proud! Reza is shady, he likes you one day...and doesn't the next..just like a girl! Better to keep him at a distance and break off business ties if you want to be able to tolerate his presence in social settings.

Mike your posts are always so generic! Week after week your friends display bad behavior and you never say anything to the offender! Do you feel because you go behind everyone's back or sit in the confessional stating that you have the offended person's back that you really are a true friend? You seem pretty level headed put it to some use! Those same real estate clients you are trying to acquire may be watching your two faced behavior too!
