‘Million Dollar Beach House‘ is a Netflix original reality series that has all the ingredients for it to be a hit – an array of personalities that tick every box of reality TV stereotypes, drama that adds spice to an otherwise boring workplace environment, and cut-throat inter-personal competition and jealousy. Imagine ‘Selling Sunset,’ but set in The Hamptons and with a predominantly male cast, and what you’ll get is ‘Million Dollar Beach House.’ While the former followed realtors from The Oppenheim Group as they navigated their work life and personal relationships, the latter revolves around those who are licensed with Nest Seekers International. Curious to know more about the company and its owner? You’ve come to the right place!
