Luis D. Ortiz still hasn't found the one. The Big Apple bachelor has certainly made some effort towards finding that special lady by joining dating apps, but he isn't sure that's the right way to go about looking for love. "You will never be able to understand fully from a picture what's out there," Luis told The Daily Dish. "Fredrik [Eklund] never settled and look at him — he married an amazing, almost perfect, actually perfect guy. [Ryan Serhant] never settled and he's gonna marry a wonderful woman, so..."
However, it's going to to take someone very special for Luis to carve out time for romance from his busy schedule. "I am having fun with my life, not just women, fun in general," he said. "In my business, with my life, with the people that I know and my friends. I just haven't found it. I'm very particular for my life, my business. I'm very detail-oriented, so when it comes to the person I'm gonna spend time with I probably am three or four times more particular than I am for the rest of my things, which are pretty specific. So I may never find it because I'm too specific. Fredrik said never settle."
With so many potential matches to choose from, we here at The Daily Dish enlisted his fellow the Million Dollar Listing New York agents to help weigh in on who they think might be the right woman for Luis.
Ryan opted for model Kendall Jenner.
Kendall Jenner just might be the one for Luis, if you ask Ryan.
"Why would I say anybody else?" Ryan explained, much to Luis' excitement.
Fredrik, on the other hand, chose a woman on the other side of the camera: director Sofia Coppola.
Is Sofia Coppola right for Luis? Fredrik thinks so.
"This is a hard question," Fredrik said. "I don't know you guys like that, [Ryan] and Emilia, but the little that I know, you're very different. Derek and I are the total opposites. I think Kendall and [Luis] are too alike, the little that I know of her. I think you need somebody more, like a powerful, independent female film director. Like Sofia Coppola. Something like that."
"I think true love, for it to last, you have to look up at the person, like, 'He's better than I am,' or 'she's' in your case. So for it to be like 20 years later, like, 'Wow, he's everything.' It's something you admire. It has to be a quality [and nothing to do with money or those things]."
Luis' take on those words of wisdom? "That's very true," he said. "I think one of the things that I haven't found yet is that level of admiration for someone that just blows me away."
