Luis D. Ortiz Has Evolved

Luis explains how he has changed since last season and what two things he committed himself to this week.

By Luis D. Ortiz

And we're back! I can still remember the feeling I had when we premiered last season -- my first season. It was scary, but exciting. At the same time, it was something I needed to be a part of. This year it feels the same, but even more exciting.

How to Watch

Catch up on Million Dollar Listing New York on Peacock or the Bravo App.

Since last season, I have evolved in so many different ways. I was committed to become a newer and sharper version of myself. So I changed my surroundings to nothing but the best energy, people, and environment. I've moved to a new two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment at 200 North End Avenue. I moved to the best real estate company on the planet, Douglas Elliman and I became more dedicated to my career. I even started to work out. This year I promised that I would do what ever it takes to become a better broker and a better man and I can already feel it. But, one thing that will never change is my essence. That will always remain intact.


Now, what a first episode! My first big listing being with Douglas Elliman is 353 Central Park West. It's, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful Upper West Side listings I have seen. Now, it wasn't easy to get. Nothing is. I needed to mentor Todd, the son of the owner, who is a real estate agent and was the listing agent of this listing, in order to get it.

But you know what, I believe that everyone has to change to become great. I decided to prove that to myself. However, this task was difficult. More than I previously imagined

One thing is true, Todd really wanted it and he tried. That to me is a good first step in order to become successful.

I committed myself to two things: To sell this listing and to mentor Todd. I decided I would take both to the finish line. By doing whatever it takes.

You will see that throughout the course of the year. Stay tuned for the most exciting, intense and dramatic season of the Million Dollar Listing franchise.

Love you all.
