Sure, we are fans of the HGTV/Bravo TV shows Million Dollar Listing LA and Million Dollar Listing New York. We enjoy it for its outrageous characters, mega homes and huge price-tags but as real-life real estate agents we can easily recognize that this show is all about entertainment and not really about selling houses.
The world that Million Dollar Listing portrays has very little to do with reality. I know for a fact that this show is scripted, written and acted in a very deliberate way. The reality of the property selling transaction can be very exciting/intense/stressful but worlds away from how it is portrayed on Million Dollar Listing. In fact, I have been on HGTV shows and can tell you most of the real estate shows are scripted and planned.

Anyway, let’s imagine for a second Million Dollar Listing Liberty Village is a real show. As your neighbourhood real estate pros, it goes with out saying that Heikki and I would make up 2/3rds of the cast (and yes, we can be equally entertaining). What properties would we be showing our million dollar clients? Surely it wouldn’t be the 500sqft or 700sqft Liberty Village condos we sell so many of. No. That wouldn’t cut it. Let’s have a look at the mega condos that we would show in Liberty Village:
The first and clearly most impressive place we would show our mega client is the recently released “Authentic Loft Collection at the Toy Factory”. They are offering a unique opportunity to design a custom dream loft. You don’t even see these in the movies! The 5125sqft loft is a blend of urban luxury wrapped in a historic architecture. Features include a private 600sqft rooftop terrace, gourmet European kitchen, top of the line Sub Zero & Wolf appliances, exposed brick & beam, 17ft windows, 21ft ceilings and a choice of premium finishes from reclaimed wood floors to natural stone and marble.
Still in the construction phase and due to be ready in March 2014, this mega-loft is listed by Royal LePage Your Community for a whopping $3,664,000.
The next Liberty Village mega-condo we would show our rich clients is the penthouse available at 150 East Liberty Street (also known as Liberty Place). This is a luxurious, unique, south-facing penthouse clocking in at approximately 2500 sqft of interior space and an additional 710 sqft balcony with 4 separate double door access. The condo has been upgraded to the nines with every kind upgrade you can think of.
With 150 East Liberty St still under construction, this mega condo will be ready for occupancy next summer. It is listed by Keller Williams Advantage Realty for $1,425,000.
The showings would end for that day at 5 Hanna (The Liberty Market Lofts) where we would see the penthouse currently available. The penthouse offers over 1600sqft of beautifully finished living space with unobstructed south/east and west views of the lake and city-scape. With soaring 11-foot ceiling heights, custom kitchen and bathroom, open concept integrated kitchen with European brand stainless steel appliances. The stunning master bedroom includes a spacious walk-in closet. Bathrooms have marble flooring and walls, All counter tops are granite.The private wrap-around 1146sqft terrace has a BBQ connection.
Available for immediate occupancy, this mega soft-loft is listed by Milborne Real Estate Inc. for a cool $999,000.
