Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: The Apprentice- 3 Re/Max Associates

The Apprentice- 3 Re/Max Associates

This is crazy!  I read on the Mainstreet front page last week, but just had time to go back and actually read the full articles.  3 contestants on this season's The Apprentice are associated with Re/Max agents across the country.

Nicole's mom, Mary Anne D'Ambrosio, is a sales associate with Re/Max of Naperville in Illinois.

Then, after Karen Ruggiero with Re/Max Acclaim in Rosevile, Michigan read the article on Mainstreet, she spoke up saying that her daughter is also on the show, Angela.

Well, you can't stop at just 2.  The story got around and low and behold, there's a third tie to RE/MAX on this 6th season.  James is the husband of Julie Sun who is an associate with Re/Max Elite in Redmond, Washington.

It's a small, small world out there!  This year's The Apprentice has several real estate related contestants and I'm curious on who the others are associated with.  After the first couple of seasons when they had real estate agents, I figured there was no way they would chose another for the next seasons, but they keep picking more and more... maybe I should try out!!

Second thought, I'm one of those strong personalities that would probably get thrown out by their team members because they would be intimidated by me.  I'm a straight-shooter and don't play games.

it's cracking me up as well-makes the public even more convinced that real estate people have too much time on their hands, taking 16 weeks off from life to be in tv. =)

I've also wondered how people can take such a long time off work, with any of the reality shows, but it also shows we, real estate agents on a whole, try to get to the top as quickly as possible.  The one daughter is only 25.  By 25, I had already been told by two HUGE corporate companies that I was trying to move up the corporate ladder too quickly and to slow down.  I got into real estate when I was 24 because of that...
