Calling all 'Selling Sunset' fans! If you were a fan of the reality show, then there's no doubt you'll be binging on this one too. 'Million Dollar Beach House' promises to be a sassy real-estate reality drama that you probably need in your life right now. However, instead of West Coast listings, we'll be checking in on the Nest Seekers, which caters to clients vying for some of the hottest properties in the nation: the Hamptons in Long Island. Get ready for some intense squabbling between the brokers, fun parties and mud-slinging.
According to Netflix, the first season will chronicle the summer months of the Hamptons and focus on five brokers. The synopsis reads, "Million Dollar Beach House is a bird’s eye view into the day-to-day life of the Hampton’s youngest and most exclusive group of real estate agents, documenting their private lives and posh coastline listings. With 2,500 realtors working the Hamptons market, earning a listing is fierce competition. Nest Seekers reps to-die-for, multi-million-dollar properties and not without personal drama between agents. Throughout the series, five brokers hustle from Memorial Day to Labor Day to buy and sell properties for their clients. From appeasing sellers who are unhappy with home staging to cutthroat open houses where agents are going after each other’s clients, Million Dollar Beach House has all the views, all the schmooze, and brokers with a lot to lose."
