– Selling Tampa review does not contain any spoilers –
Selling Tampa starts its first episode right in the middle of a real-estate opportunity for the women of Allure Realty. Owned by an all-Black women team, the real-estate reality TV series has some swanky places and empowered women who go around making huge commissions and taking huge vacations.
Ok, let’s first talk about the homes. The series has some great cinematography so the homes that are going up on the market look gorgeous. These sprawling estates in front of beautiful lakes are, obviously, very beautiful. But this series isn’t about the homes, is it? It’s about the women and their lives and loves.
Then we have the women of Allure. This is a weird mishmash between Real Housewives and Million Dollar Beach House. The series isn’t as much about real estate as it is about the people who are doing the selling and their personal lives. We get to know all about their lives and loves, their competition with each other as well as how they work together to seal the deal. Selling Tampa is entertaining and a bit annoying – these women can make for good television, but can also be extremely annoying and surface-level. There are some funny and relatable moments in their conversations with each other the latter of which are also quite delicious.
You get to know all of these women one by one, some more than the other. Their own depiction of themselves and the others will create an idea in your mind about them too. Sometimes they talk about each other behind their backs which is the gossipy reality TV that you need to fill your time. Selling Tampa, without a doubt, makes for great TV in the background. If you need something fun and entertaining to be on without giving too much thought to what is actually happening, this is going to be it for you.
A lot of real-estate reality TV can be boring. But, to Selling Tampa’s credit, that’s not the case here. It’s absolutely deliciously addictive to watch. I mean, there’s a part where Sharelle’s mother’s house burns down and they show us pictures of the burnt property. Oof, and a passive-aggressive feud between the women at an estate showing occasion is absolutely great to watch. It’s entertaining reality TV – and these examples are just in the first episode!
Summing up: Selling Tampa
Selling Tampa is a deliciously controversy-inducing series that is more about the women and their problems rather than about the homes it tries to sell. And that’s ok, I am here for entertainment and honestly, I am thoroughly entertained by their petty feuds, passive-aggressiveness and rare emotional moments.
