Last week on Bravo‘s Million Dollar Listing New York, Ryan Serhant was busy playing marriage counselor, while Michael Lorber and Fredrik Eklund parted ways on their listing, as they just could not seem to get along. On tonight’s episode, it was round two! Read on for all the highlights…
Million Dollar Listing New York seems to be more like the “Fredrik the shark hour” these days, doesn’t it? Tonight was no exception, although Fredrik tried to fool us all by making us think he was going to buy a puppy – yeah okay, he has no time for that! Instead, Fredrik took on a new client in Chelsea, and was blindsided when he learned that the seller had no decor sense what-so-ever. Did you see the nasty retro furniture in the place? Or how about that awful plant that completely spooked Fredrik out? Luckily, Fredrik conned the client into getting his apartment staged – for only a measly $30k, but he did manage to sell it for $250k more than he was asking.
The marriage counselor, aka Ryan Serhant was scrambling to figure out what he was going to do with his demanding clients, when suddenly, the light went on his head – oh wait, it was actually his assistant’s idea. Taking a huge risk, Ryan took the clients to a place on the west side, which is not where they wanted to be, but would it prove to be a huge mistake? It seemed like it at first as the couple could not seem to envision the empty apartment the way they wanted it, and poor Ryan was desperate for some much needed sleep after dealing with these two pain in the you know whats.
Ryan was so desperate that he hatched a secret plan, or secret weapon anyway: a designer, who was there to help the couple envision their new place. Armed with fabric and carpet samples, the designer was able to turn these negative nellies into possible new home owners. It would take some hard work on Ryan’s part though, and of course some flirting with the seller’s agent. Ryan turned on the charm, but his Soap Opera days were over we soon learned, as his flirting did not go as well as he thought. He did manage to close the deal, and then he attempted to get a date – this guy is such a player it is sickening!
Million Dollar Listing New York then turned into the “Fredrik versus Michael show” round two! Fredrik intentionally found one of Michael’s listings to offer to his client, the same one who just sold the home – can you say double commission? Fredrik even poked fun at Michael’s photo on the flyer to his client, although we can understand why. And what the heck was up with Michael’s red socks tonight? Dude sure has some odd fashion sense! Michael was determined to stand his ground with the bully aka Fredrik, and the two negotiated for quite a while, until Fredrik was about to walk out on the deal. And then, wham! fooled us all and he told Michael they did have a deal…nothing like meeting in the middle!
