Info about authors
The stars of HGTV’s Selling New York let fans step inside the high-profile world of Manhattan real estate in a wild and one-of-a-kind novel of stormy egos, sumptuous homes, and staggering fame and fortune: Hot Property. Michele Kleier and her daughters Sabrina and Samantha are no strangers to the high-stakes Manhattan market, with clients that have included Billy Joel, Neil Diamond, Katie Couric, Barbra Streisand, Diane Keaton, Dustin Hoffman, and Al Pacino. Now, in Hot Property—perfect for fans of The Devil Wears Prada, One Fifth Avenue, and The Nanny Diaries—the irrepressible first ladies of New York City real estate give readers a glimpse of what it’s like to be at the top of the game in one of the most competitive real estate markets in the world.
Since becoming a homeowner, I've watched a lot of HGTV, and I love the show Selling New York, which features the authors as well as other brokers from high-end firms around New York City. If you're like me and love real estate, especially indulging in your fantasies to own high end real estate, Hot Property is the book for you. It's a fantasy of amazing living spaces in one of the most glamorous cities in the world.
If you're not into real estate, this book probably won't be for you. There's dish and quirky New York characters, but the focus of this novel really is real estate, so if you don't share an interest in it, you'll probably be bored.
Overall, I found Hot Property to be an enjoyable, quick read and I look forward to seeing the Kleirs on the new season of Selling New York!
