How are you doing?

Better, I think.

Good. You look better.



I will be here.


[strains of birds singing]







Asking is $3 million,

So that will be

A very nice commission.

This is great!


Are you sure you're

Not in the market?

You sold us

The house we just bought!

Don't be greedy.

This house will make me

Number-one agent

And, hopefully, a partner.

The owner did

A ground-up restoration.

This place has not been

Touched in 40 years.

I remember

Driving by, thinking,

"What a scary

Old wreck."

Well, fortunately

For this old girl,

Her bones are

Made of redwood,

And that lasts forever.

Over here.

Okay. So, check this out.

Now, this room

Used to be smaller.

There was a wall

Right there,

And they

Knocked it out,

And they found

Another room behind it.

A sealed room?


That's creepy.

Why would

Someone do that?

Actually, it's not uncommon

In these big houses.

When you reduce

The size of the room,

It makes it

A lot easier to heat.

Oh. Well,

The place looks great,

And the open house

Sounds fun.

More like a party.

We have waiters

In period costumes,

Food, drink.

Jason's coming, right?


And you should ask Dani.

If she has a date,

She can bring him, too.


What about you?

Are you gonna bring a date?

Oh, you know me, Jenn.

Married to my job.

But you never know

Who might show up.


Okay. Why does

Somebody bring


Into the store?

Because they want to

Sell it?

Exactly! And we are here

To help them succeed.

While making money

For the store--

Through the art

Of negotiation.

Aim high. Expect

The best outcome.

Now, if

You're selling,

You ask for more

Than you expect to get.

Ah, but if

You're buying--

Offer less

Then you're willing to pay?


Where did you

Learn this stuff?

Oh, I have kids.

I negotiate

Every day of my life.

Okay, so Im here alone,

And someone brings in

A beautiful,

Hand-painted jewellery box,

And they're asking

A hundred bucks for it.

You offer?

Mm... 10 bucks.

Apple doesn't fall

Far from the tree.

That's my girl!




"Morp" dance?

It's "prom"

Spelled backwards.


Oh, that's clever.


I think he's worried

That a girl named Amy

Is gonna ask him.

Hmm. Funny.

In my day, they called it

A "Sadie Hawkins."

You went to a girl-ask-boy?


Who'd you ask?

Captain of the football team.


And where is he now?

Not sure.

Used to play

For the Dallas cowboys.

[Game guns blasting

In headphones]


You've been

Talking to dad.

Well, I usually talk to dad.

The dance sounds like fun.

Okay, one, I don't dance.

Two, it's a girl-ask-boy,

Which is lame,

And three--

Not interested.

Hmm. Did someone asked you?


Hope it stays that way.

This is a tough age.

well, then

Don't bring a date.

Just come.

You're both

Coming, right?

Oh, yes.

Me, Jason and Hannah.

Me and me.




This would be perfect

For the open house.

Can I borrow it?

Mm. It's a barye.

Copy. It's a copy.

So, sure, you can borrow it.

Okay, Ill see

You guys tonight.


Oh! Wouldn't that be funny

If it wasn't a copy?

No. It really

Wouldn't be.


[Party buzz and chatter]

No thanks. I'm fine.

Yes, please. Thank you.

All right?

Red wine. Really?


He look great?

Oh, he cleans up good.

I was gonna say

The same thing.

[All laughing]

So, not a bad turn out, right?


-it's great.

So, any nibbles?

Nibbles and bites,

The bite's at full-asking

And Im, uh...

Well, Im working

The nibbles.


This is

A nice house.

Built 1890s?

Very good. 1884.

Gustav Carson.

He owned the lumber mill.


They ran out of wood,

So they fell on hard times.

The current owner

Has done a great job

With the restoration.

It's just beautiful.

Mm-hmm. Erica franklin.

She flips

A lot of properties,

But this one, she really

Sank a lot of money into.

Excuse me,

But congratulations.

This is an epic

Open house, Adrian.

Thank you.

Peter Mullin.

Real estate agent


This is Jason,

Jennifer, Danielle,

Susan, and frank.

Hi. And this is Mari.

If you need flowers,

She is your gal.

She runs

"Back to the fuchsia."

Oh! I love that movie.


I love your store.

-and that's a cute name.

-thank you!

I think Ive seen

You there before.

Oh, yeah.

Buy my own flowers.

So, any action?

Looking good.

I am so happy

For you.

I wanted this

Listing so bad!

Okay, guys, well,

We are going to wander around

And continue to eat for free.


-see you at the bar.


If you guys need anything--

Anything at all--

Please don't hesitate to ask.



-thank you.



You like the house?


What's not to like?

Well, I mean,

It's "the Carson house."

William Carson.

My great-grandfather

Built all this.

Did you live here?

The family lost the house

Back in the 1920s.

But yeah,

I'm hoping to get it back.

What do you do

That you could afford

A place like this?

I play on-line poker.

See, I log on through

A computer in Portugal.

The site thinks Im there.

I thought that was illegal.

As long

As you don't get caught.


Can I show you upstairs?

I saw it, but thanks.

I've gotta run.

You know I wanted to

Buy this place and tear it down?
