Stars of “Million Dollar Listing San Francisco” on Bravo TV
Bravo TV has launched yet another entertaining installment of the Million Dollar Listing
franchise set in one of the world’s leading technological hotspots—San Francisco, California. The fourth of it’s kind, Million Dollar Listing San Francisco follows the real estate careers of three of the areas top agents: Justin Fichelson, Andrew Greenwell, and Roh Habibi. The series is known for showcasing unbelievable luxury properties and incredible views, all wrapped up in the juiciest of real estate drama. Million Dollar Listing San Francisco promises no less.
San Francisco is home to some of the country’s quirkiest people and most unique, sought-after real estate. The area has an incredible social and consumer based technology
culture and is where social media giants like Instagram,Facebook, and Twitter have built their empires. It’s up-andcoming status as a technology capital of the world has housing prices skyrocketing, making for a cutthroat real estate market. There’s no room for
negotiating or cutting corners when both sellers and buyers are expected to put their best foot forward.
The average property in the San Francisco market receives anywhere from five to seven cash offers. It’s so competitive, buyer’s actually wave inspections. To give you a bit of
perspective, in my twenty years as an agent, I’ve only had one person wave an inspection. Watching their hectic, fast-paced lives gives me back a little of my own sanity knowing they too deal with chaotic situations—even if it is on a much larger scale.
The exposure from the show provides marketing opportunities for the agents as well as their clients, and in real estate—it’s all about marketing. After six to eight months of filming, drama, and deals these guys truly understand what it means to go above and beyond to market your business in this industry. I had the privilege of speaking with both Justin Fichelson and Andrew Greenwell on my weekly radio show, which airs every Sunday at 10 AM on FM News Talk 97.1. These two are full of passion, business savvy, and creativity—the perfect formula that makes them two of the most ambitious and successful real estate agents in the industry today.
Be sure to tune into Million Dollar Listing San Francisco every Wednesday at 10/9c on Bravo TV.
A native San Franciscan, Justin Fichelson lives only 10 minutes away from where he grew up in the heart of the city. His thirty years in the area gives him expert knowledge of all things San Francisco, and a leg-up on the competition. With such a successful career, I doubt he’ll be digging up those deep roots any time soon.
Fichelson discovered how much he loved flipping houses and his passion for real estate as a whole after graduating from college. According to him, even if you’re not directly involved in the housing market, it’s a conversation everyone’s having in San Francisco. From housing affordability to investment values, the young millionaires that live in the area are a large part of the city’s technology explosion, and they live and breathe business—real estate included. “It makes for a really interesting selling environment,” said Fichelson. He’s only been a Realtor for the last three and a half years, but he’s done more with his career than most agents accomplish over a lifetime.
Fichelson is a luxury broker at Climb Real Estate, a boutique firm that’s in tune with the area’s technology culture. A starter home in San Francisco could cost around $2 million, and even at those prices, you’d be hard pressed to get over 2,000 square feet. For that reason alone,working with a flexible firm that doesn’t only understand technology but is also inspired by it has helped him on his way to becoming a real estate mogul.
On the show, you’ll see a lot of Fichelson’s tousled locks and smooth demeanor—but don’t let those stylish salmon colored pants fool you. To him, real estate requires round the clock dedication. It’s an industry that’s serious and intense, but vastly rewarding . He services the San Francisco area along with a number of surrounding regions such as Silicon Valley, Hillisboro, Napa Valley, and Carmel – and much of the luxury market in northern California. Fichelson is young, lively, and free-spirited with a wonderful light-hearted laugh. On Million Dollar Listing San Francisco, it’s easy to see his tendency to take things personally and his worries of disappointing his father, but it’s his big heart that makes him so passionate about selling real estate. Even with his happy and bright personality, he’s always ready to take things seriously and get the job done, making him an incredible asset to the show and the real estate industry.
