BEHIND THE VELVET ROPE
MDLNY's Ronita Kalra (on all things Million Dollar Listing)
Million Dollar Listing New York’s Ronita's Kalra Steps Behind The Rope. You know, little Luis D. Ortiz’ “assistant”, Ronita. Assistant now turned Real Estate Super Agent herself. We here Behind The Rope are obsessed with real estate so welcome Ronita, welcome. We check in with Ronita on the current state of the New York City real estate market. Do we buy or do we sell? So many questions, so little time. Ronita tells us how she went from a past career of stability and perks, at Apple nonetheless, to taking a chance on herself in the shark infested waters of New York Real Estate. She explains how she met Luis on her first day of work at Douglas Elliman (she has just accepted a new position at Compass), how getting on his team wasn't as easy as she thought and how she eventually wore Luis down and secured the coveted position of learning from one of NYC's best. We discuss their ever changing relationship, her breaking away and becoming an agent of her own, Luis' shocking decision to leave not only MDLNY, but also New York City and Real Estate in general, and the status of their relationship today. Knowing them all, we also discuss those other New York Super Agents, Fredrik Eklund, Ryan Serhant, Steve Gold and Tyler Whitman. We discuss the lack of women on the franchise, the important role of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles’ Tracy Tutor, and how MDLNY is, in fact, casting a female for the new upcoming season (any spoilers Ronnie on who that may be? Hmm). Being a huge BravoHolic herself, we talk about some of her favorites, Teresa Giudice, Kyle Richards, and Bethenny Frankel. We also talk about that one time her and Luis went to dinner with Dorinda and John and that one time her and Luis went dinner with Miss Sonja Morgan. Do tell. She does. Then there was the time she ran into Tinsley at the bar at The Marmara Hotel, where Tins was living at the time. Ahh, New York. Finally we talk about those other brillant Real Estate Shows, MDLLA and Selling Sunset, the differences, similarities, and why Real Estate reality shows are a genre we will never tire of. A fun, jam packed episode with Miss Ronnie Kalra.
