HGTV’s “Selling New York” follows CORE agents as they navigate the country’s most competitive—and compelling—real estate market. Here’s our behind-the-scenes look at Episode 402, which first aired on October 20, 2011. For more SNY epilogues, click here.
In “The Right Moves,” CORE agent and “SNY” newcomer Adrian Noriega assists a buyer–who is not only a returning client, but also a friend–in finding the perfect apartment. Sound like a sticky situation? Well, disappointed after losing what he thought was his dream home, Adrian’s client, Doug, pressures Adrian even harder to deliver the goods that made him a returning client in the first place. Throughout this hunt, not only is an apartment on the line, but so is a long-lasting business relationship—and perhaps a friendship—as well.
Keep on reading for some exclusive behind-the-scenes information about what didn’t make it into last night’s episode of “Selling New York” and what happened after the cameras stopped rolling!
1) Friends are forever—as long as you find them their dream home. Adrian has worked as Doug’s real estate broker not once, not twice, but a total of three times over the past few years, and the two have developed a strong friendship. While it may have placed additional pressure on Adrian to deliver results, he said that he truly enjoys mixing business with pleasure, and he considers many of his former clients among his closest friends. Doug said that having a friend like Adrian as his representative was a big plus because he knew that he could trust Adrian. In addition, both Adrian and Doug agreed that it is far more fun to go apartment hunting with someone whose company you actually enjoy. And yes, Doug is very happy at his new home, and he and Adrian are most certainly still friends. Phew!
