#MDLSF's Roh Habibi Addresses His Conservative Views Head-On and Fans Applaud His Bravery
"My hope is that our conversation inspires others to learn, love, and accept," the Bay Area agent tells The Daily Dish.
Million Dollar Listing San Francisco agent Roh Habibi's religious beliefs became the focus of Season 1's most recent episode (August 26). Roh opened up about his conservative views, as well as being raised Muslim, while he was working with a same-sex couple. After meeting Marcus and Robbie, who were in the process of adopting a child, Roh struggled with an internal dilemma and not initially agreeing with their lifestyle. But personal reflection and an honest conversation led to a new point of understanding, with Roh later telling the couple, "you guys have truly helped open up my perspective in seeing things in a different way."
Roh spoke about the experience with The Daily Dish after the episode, sharing that the pair has definitely left an impression on him. "I've never been a judgmental person, and I am grateful that my discussion with Marcus and Robbie made it clear that I strive to live my life with an open mind, and an open heart," he said. "I thank Marcus, and Robbie, for pointing out that we share so much in common. We have all been judged, and stereotyped, and that is a very painful thing to endure. Robbie and Marcus were kind enough to help me understand their perspective, and my hope is that our conversation inspires others to learn, love, and accept."
Viewers will get to see more from Roh and the couple. "You'll see our friendship continue to blossom next week as we end Season 1 of Million Dollar Listing San Francisco on a powerful and positive note. At the end of the day, if we all just opened our minds, and opened our hearts, the world would be a much more peaceful and happy place."
Roh received suppport from viewers — as well as fellow agent, Million Dollar Listing New York's Ryan Serhant — who were touched by his decision to be so open. "Roh's bravery and honesty is commendable, and his scene with Marcus and Robbie is very powerful," Ryan shared with The Daily Dish. "Cheers to shattering stereotypes, and inspiring the world by exhibiting the virtues of love, peace, and acceptance."
