Peggy Zabakolas, from Netflix’s Million Dollar Beach House, steps Behind The Rope. First things first, Peggy fills us in on all things Real Estate in both The Hamptons and New York City - the current state of the market, where you can get the best deals, and what are her favorite parts of each location. Let us start at the beginning. Peggy began working at Nest Seekers, while still in Law School, for a broker by the name of Ryan Serhant. You may have heard of him. Her first day on the job was the Premier Party for Season One, Episode One of Million Dollar Listing New York. Peggy discusses what it was like to work for Ryan back in the day, what it was like to film Million Dollar Listing New York, and what she thinks of Ryan’s growth and success throughout the years as a result of the show. Peggy also knows and discusses those other MDLNY agents Fredrik Eklund, Steve Gold and Luis D. Ortiz. Peggy explains how she is one of the only brokers to split her time between New York City and The Hamptons and how that led to her being cast as one of the five main agents on Million Dollar Beach House. We talk about how she was cast, what the filming process was like and how she felt she was portrayed once she watched the series back on Netflix. We also talk about her colleagues and costars Michael, JB, Noel and Jimmy and what the status of each of those relationships is like today. Peggy opens up about her motivations for joining the cast of Million Dollar Beach House, the biggest misconception about her from the show, how life changed overnight as a result of the show, how the show has helped her booming Real Estate career and what she hopes to further gain as a result of the show's success. Of course, we cannot help but compare Million Dollar Beach House to its left coast compadre, Selling Sunset. We discuss that show as well as her other Reality TV love, The Real Housewives. Yes The Hamptons is a small place. She has run into / seen LuAnn deLesseps, Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer. Of course, we discuss. Tune in now for this fun filled chat with Peggy Zabakolas from Netflix’ Million Dollar Beach House.
