Million Dollar Listing Expands to the Sexy City of Miami

Bravo will premiere an all-new edition of their hit franchise, Million Dollar Listing, on Wednesday, June 25th at 9pm ET/PT!


On the series premiere of ‘Million Dollar Listing Miami,’ Chad is looking to stake his claim in the exclusive neighborhood of Palm Island.  Chris brushes up on his Russian as he works from his bathtub to sell a 6 million dollar penthouse. Meanwhile, Sam lands the biggest listing of her career, but is she already in over her head?

“Million Dollar Listing” follows three luxury real estate agents battle it out in the world of high-end real estate. With a surging market in South Florida, properties are selling for record rates and agents are cashing in on massive commissions like never before. The mansions are bigger, the high-rises are taller, the amenities are more lux and the locals have access to amazing views, beaches and a lifestyle unlike anywhere else in the world. Business can get heated as the brokers attempt to make a name for themselves and outshine their competition by landing the next big listing.






Chad Carroll serves as Executive Vice President at luxury real estate powerhouse Douglas Elliman, the largest real estate company on the East Coast. Born and raised in Ohio to a family of doctors, Chad arrived in Miami determined to make a name for himself in the competitive local real estate market.  Now a Miami “Power Broker” in every sense of the phrase, Carroll has closed over $200 million in sales since 2011 and was named the company’s top broker for the past two years. Known in the industry as “The King of Closing,” Chad uses his wealth of experience in finance and contract negotiation to put clients in their dream homes. His “full-service” approach combines selling the Miami lifestyle side-by-side with multi-million dollar properties. Chad’s longtime girlfriend, Jen Stone, is a local television lifestyle host and personality who frequently assists Chad with marketing his listings. Always pushing forward, Chad is pursuing opportunities to develop, build and sell his own exclusive residential projects.


Chris Leavitt is one of the top brokers at Douglas Elliman, the largest real estate company on the East Coast. As a teenager growing up in Boston, Chris became interested in the real estate industry when helping his parents select and purchase investment properties in Boston, New York City and Palm Beach. He even held an internship at the young age of 17 for one of the most acclaimed real estate agencies in Palm Beach.  Now with nearly 20 years in luxury real estate, Chris consistently proves to be an exemplary broker and boasts an impressive record of success in both the South Florida and New York City markets. In 2013 alone, Chris sold in excess of $120 million dollars in real estate. Recently, he represented the sale of a triplex penthouse in Miami Beach which sold for $34 million – the largest condominium sale in the history of Florida and the highest-priced dollar per square foot for an individual condominium. This record sale is one of the many milestones in Chris’s career, but he’s not ready to rest on his laurels just yet. He continues to look for ways to bring his particular brand of east coast sophistication to the booming South Florida market. Chris’ industry accolades and broad range of experience has included his role as Director of Sales for several well-established new developments in New York and South Florida, which he sold out in record time.


Samantha DeBianchi is the founder of DeBianchi Real Estate, one of the top Florida real estate firms, representing a number of athletes, entrepreneurs and investors. Her drive for excellence coupled with her “over-the-top, out-of-the-box thinking” led her to move quickly to the top of the real estate game with $25 million in sales in just three years. Sam’s obsession with perfection along with her negotiation skills allows her to raise the bar in the real estate game.
A graduate from Florida Atlantic University at only 20, Samantha earned her MBA from Nova Southeastern by the age of 22.  Sam grew up in nearby Ft. Lauderdale, but quickly made a name for herself working in hospitality for the hot Miami nightlife scene, and at 25 she created a college course for Florida International University in their school of hospitality. In addition to her thriving real estate career, Samantha keeps herself busy by spending time with her boyfriend Jeff, reporting as a real estate expert for various TV shows as well as serving as a weekly “real estate advice” columnist for South Florida’s Sun Sentinel.


Dexter – The 8th and Final Season


Sadly, this summer, two of my all time favorite shows, will come to an end.

The series finales – for both Breaking Bad and Dexter – are highly anticipated.

Showtime confirmed season eight would be Dexter‘s last April, following nearly a year of question marks surrounding the show’s future.

“This ending has been planned for a couple of years, and every few months or so I kicked the tires and said, ‘Are you sure you want to end? Are you sure you want to go?'” Nevins said. “But they had a story in mind, and [showrunner] Scott [Buck] and Sara and Michael and [EP] John [Goldwyn] stuck to their guns, and they’re doing the end that they wanted to do. And this is the beginning of the end.”

With less than a week from ‘Dexter”s final season premiere, “A Beautiful Day,” why wait until this coming Sunday for a sneak peek at the Showtime serial killer’s eighth year?




Dexter will take the Morgan siblings to darker places than ever before, as congenial serial killer Dexter (Michael C. Hall) and his now-estranged sister Debra (Jennifer Carpenter) strive to recover from last season’s shocking cliff-hanger where Deb killed their Miami Metro captain to keep her brother’s secret safe.




Dexter is an American drama series that has aired on Showtime since October 1, 2006. It has been nominated for a variety of awards, including eleven Primetime Emmy Awards (two wins), seven Golden Globe Awards (two wins), seven Screen Actors Guild Awards (one win), twelve Satellite Awards (seven wins), thirteen Saturn Awards (five wins), two PGA Awards, two TCA Awards (one win), five WGA Awards, a Peabody Award, and it was selected twice by the American Film Institute as one of the top ten best television programs of the year.

Arrested Development – Season Four


I have loved this show from the very beginning.  The characters, the writing, the family dynamic, and all of its campy goodness have made me laugh out loud over the years.  And I was incredibly sad when the show was unexpectedly cancelled.

You can imagine my joy when they released Season Four on Netflix.

And I dove right in.

At first, I have to admit I was a little disappointed.  I am also not ashamed to admit that I didn’t really get what they were doing until about episode five.

After watching the whole season, I went back and watched it again.

And now?

Oh, my goodness.

It’s THE MOST tightly crafted thing I’ve ever seen.



The intersecting story lines, the esoteric references to episodes from nine years ago, the attention to detail.

Everything about this season is brilliant.

As a fan, I love this all so much.

And as an author, I am speechless with the writers’ precision.


Well done, Arrested Development!  Well done, indeed.
