The Real Estate Pros

Common Sense Media says

Show about real estate agents is too real to be interesting.





What parents need to know

Positive messages

The show runs on the idea that if you work hard and give people good value, they'll buy. But this is countered by some negativism between the brothers featured on the show.

Positive role models

The characters are good business people who practice good ethics. But they're also a little driven by profit, and the boss can be very hard on his employees -- sometimes unfairly so.

Not applicable
Not applicable

A fair amount of bleeped language, including one case in which the word "ass" was bleeped, but you could still see what was being said.

Not applicable
Drinking, drugs, & smoking

The adults engage in some social drinking, and one of the featured principals owns a restaurant and bar.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that even though this reality show is about business people who are focused on making the most money that they can, most of them seem to have strong ethics (though the boss can be very hard on his employees, sometimes unfairly so). There's some social drinking and bleeped language, but the content is fairly tame overall -- still, the subject matter (real estate) isn't likely to interest too many kids.

What's the story?

THE REAL ESTATE PROS is a fairly basic behind-the-scenes reality show centered on Trademark Properties, in Charleston, South Carolina, which is owned and run by Richard Davis and his team. Cameras follow Davis, his brother, and other members of the group as they buy and sell commercial and residential real estate ... and sometimes clash with each other.

Is it any good?


Richard Davis is a good businessman, and he does know what he's doing, but watching him insist that there's only one way to renovate a given property can be a bit grating. And when things go wrong, Richard isn't the nicest guy in the world -- although he's seldom out and out abusive.

Fortunately, enough scenes center on other team members to help mitigate the "Richard factor." But on the flipside, those folks aren't really that interesting, either. It's real life, but edited -- ad there's a reason why. Real life by itself can be pretty boring to watch.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about how the show portrays the real estate industry. Do you think producers ever take liberties to create a more dramatic situation than might actually exist

  • How does the way the show is edited tell the story? Why do you think some shots are repeated?
