Movies about real estate: "5 Flights Up"
New York Times has an article about a new Diane Keaton-Morgan Freeman film, "5 Flights Up." Link here. I hadn't heard of the movie, but it's apparently about a late-middle-aged couple who are selling their Brooklyn apartment. And making an unexpected fortune, of course. And naturally, there's at least one venal, grasping Realtor in the film, because hey, that's who we are. Or who Hollywood thinks we are (don't get me started on who we think they are). But I guess there would be no story if there wasn't a bad
Realtor guy driving the action. Anyway, the article contains many comments from NY real estate agents about how our biz is portrayed. Personally, I can't wait to see it!
