Tracy Tutor Reveals "the Most Difficult Thing" She Has "Ever Dealt With"
"The amount of pressure on me ... was just maniacal," the Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles agent said of the experience.
On Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles' July 7 episode, Tracy Tutor landed the listing for developer Scott Gillen's $500 million portfolio, The Malibu Series. While she called the opportunity "the biggest thing that's ever happened to me" at the time, Tracy is now opening up about the challenges of the experience.
"Without a doubt, the Malibu portfolio and the personality of that particular developer is the most difficult thing I've ever dealt with, period," Tracy said in a recent interview with Cheddar. "He has an ego the size of the continent of Africa and managing that on a day-to-day basis is incredibly difficult to deal with. When you have a client that wants to show their own home because they don't think their broker is good enough to do it, I mean, that really made me shift my entire listing pitch and I had to show him that I was sophisticated enough and confident enough to walk a buyer for a $75 million house through the property. Ultimately, I was able to do it."
"The truth is, that portfolio was the biggest opportunity of my entire 20-year career," she said earlier in the interview. "So the amount of pressure on me — forget the [MDLLA] cameras — was just maniacal."
Within the portfolio is a $75 million mansion, the New Castle, that Tracy described in the MDLLA episode as "the biggest listing I've ever had," and the Case, "five properties on 24 flat acres sitting on a bluff overlooking all of the Pacific." After working for several sleepless nights to finally land the listing, Tracy declared: "This is, like, clearly the biggest thing that's ever happened to me."
