TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – A new Netflix collection highlights a Black-owned genuine estate firm with all Black brokers in Ybor Town. “Selling Tampa” premiered on Netflix Wednesday, getting to be the most recent genuine estate exhibit to hit the streaming platform. It is a spinoff of the strike present, “Selling Sunset.”

The exhibit will function Attract Realty, whose business is on 7th Avenue in Ybor City. Sharelle Rosado is the broker and proprietor of Allure Realty.

“I’m a boss. I get matters carried out, I know how to have exciting, but there is a time and a position for every little thing,” Rosado mentioned. “You will see some of that navy construction appear out.”

Rosado opened Attract Realty in 2019 following serving 12 and a 50 percent several years in the navy. When she opened the business, Rosado states she was huge into the brokers and the organization as a whole having a large existence on social media.

That paid out off.

“It was Women’s Worldwide month in 2020, we posted a photo and we experienced various producers attain out to us,” she reported. “I didn’t like the way that producer was portraying us as minority ladies. We are not Atlanta housewives. We are beautiful, Black and about our firms.”

That’s when Rosado achieved out to the producers of “Selling Sunset,” and it was sport on from there. Just after about a calendar year of pitching strategies, conducting interviews and ironing out logistics, filming took nearly 6 months.

Juawana Colbert is the business office manager at Attract Realty. “I kind of support Sharelle in all variety of methods,” Colbert stated. “She often phone calls me her correct-hand male, but I always go back again and say woman.”

The firm is composed of all woman agents – that means the present characteristics an all-Black feminine solid.

“It’s groundbreaking,” Colbert claimed. “I really don’t even think me or any of the ladies are really grasping the magnitude this show is going to have. Younger women, minority women of all ages and girls in normal. It’s heading to give folks inspiration.”

“As an lawyer you walk into rooms, a large amount of occasions you’re the only 1 who appears like you do,” Real estate agent and cast member Rena Frazier explained. “To wander into this office environment with all this Black lady magic, it’s excellent.” Frazier started off as an legal professional and afterwards grew to become a authentic estate agent.

“Sharelle inspired me to get my true estate license,” Frazier mentioned. “When she opened her brokerage I was the first agent there.”

In the Netflix trailer for “Selling Tampa,” the globe is still left with a huge cliffhanger surrounding Frazier’s concept to perhaps open her very own brokerage.

“I have my broker’s license, so I can get started my very own brokerage,” Frazier mentioned. “Sharelle and I had been good friends in advance of the clearly show began, we’ll be good friends immediately after. What you are going to see on the clearly show is we have unique thoughts of management design and style and the way some matters really should be dealt with and you will see how we function it out on the demonstrate.”

“Rena and I, we constantly go back again and forth,” Rosado explained. “You’ll see that on the display, but at the finish of the day, if Rena desires to leave I help her 1,000%.”

Irrespective of the disagreements, the cast has one concept.

“We’re like sisters. And sisters struggle, but at the finish of the working day we arrive back jointly,” Colbert explained.

“What I’d like for people to choose absent from it is that you can have formidable ladies work alongside one another, have disputes and keep on being friends irrespective of what the end result is,” Frazier added.

Frazier is heavily associated in the community. She hosted a fundraising event with the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay Wednesday night time at 6 p.m. at the Rialto Theater.
