Valerie Fitzgerald, a Beverly Hills-based global luxury property specialist, has teamed with Bob Hurwitz, a Los Angeles-based luxury real estate broker and consultant, to host Real Estate, Real Laughs, a newly launched podcast that finally tells the real, outrageously funny stories behind the scenes of luxury real estate. From a client faking her own murder to get out of a contract, to finding freakish things in a listing, the podcast is lighthearted and fun. New episodes every Friday will feature new guests – luxury Realtors or celebrities – to share stories and keep the fun going.
“It’s time to pull the curtain back on what really goes on in our world of luxury real estate,” said Fitzgerald, the creator and main host of the show. “We’re letting the public into a world they’re not usually privy to seeing, as most shows covering real estate are merely educational. We’re offering an unseen insight into the high-end luxury market that has always been an allure to the public but with a funny, yet personable twist.”
Hurwitz, who co-hosts the show, says the show’s listeners are real estate associates and those who are interested in real estate and want to know more about what happens behind the scenes. The podcast thrives on vivid tales of what actually happens when dealing with a slew of characters from sellers to buyers and what can happen when trying to close a deal.
“Valerie and I have been friends and associates for years and have had so much fun sharing these crazy stories. She thought it would be fun to do this together and knew others would get a kick out of these adventures too. Everyone thinks luxury real estate is a perfect world. There’s a crazy side to it too, and laughing about some of the more outrageous behind-the-scenes parts of our job is a great stress reducer. Even those in other industries love the stories,” said Hurwitz.
Every Friday the podcast’s audience will receive a dose of stories from industry experts with over 20 years of experience who have seen it all. On the first show, Fitzgerald and Hurwitz enjoy a laidback conversation in which they share their stories, and in later episodes, a slew of guests ranging from fellow industry insiders as well as celebrities join in to give another refreshing take on the dealings in luxury real estate.
