The is Some drama with the girls in it but nothing extreme yes the is some language but I’m sure a 13 year old has heard it before it is definitely shouldn’t be a 15!!! It is totally appropriate for a 12 or 13 year old

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (4 ):

This voyeuristic series mixes the world of the high-end real estate business with lots of personal drama. The houses and properties featured are stunning, and the associates are talented, hardworking agents who are confident in their abilities. However, there is great emphasis on their good looks, and it's implied that this contributes to their professional success.

Not surprisingly, some cast members are obnoxious and arrogant, which makes for some tense reality moments. So does the addition of associate Amanza Smith during the second season. But regardless of the effort to home in on people's catty behavior, it is evident that the group makes professionalism their priority. As a result, while it is entertaining, Selling Sunset is barely over-the-top enough to be a guilty pleasure.
