A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
It's a real estate-themed reality series, but features themes like family and making lots of money.
Positive Role Models
Mauricio Umansky claims that he wants his team to feel like a family. He's extremely close to Alexia, and tends to cater to her. Some of the junior agents are arrogant and refuse to listen to the more experienced (and successful) senior agents.
The cast consists of a few agents who identify as Black, as well as ethnically Mexican, and Jewish.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Buying Beverly Hills is a real estate-focused unscripted (but contrived) series featuring secondary cast members of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. There's lots of cursing, as well some catty arguing and occasional strong innuendo. There's also lots of high-end logos (Gucci, Chanel, etc.) visible, and Apple computers are prominently shown. Drinking (wine, cocktails, champagne) is also visible over meals, during receptions, etc. The overall series is a promotional vehicle for the real estate company The Agency.
Is It Any Good?
The reality real estate show will feel familiar, featuring extremely expensive properties, flashy cars, and contrived moments. Adding to this is the fact that it stars Mauricio Umansky and his daughters, all of who have appeared on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. While this adds a mildly unique twist to the series, Buying Beverly Hills still offers lots of expected interpersonal conflicts as team members spar over previous office romances, make fun of their mentors, and work hard to please their clients and their boss by closing a sale. If you like this sort of unscripted entertainment, or if you're a RHOBH fan, chances are you'll find it entertaining.
