Episode 2: Two Hotheads and a Hurricane

Things become competitive and hostile when Ryan Matthew Serhant and Luis list units in the same building. When they initially meet, Ryan makes fun of Luis D. Ortiz, and Luis responds by “taking” (ahem) clients from Ryan’s open house and bringing them to his.

Meanwhile, Luis D. Ortiz tries to win over his picky client Mari. Unfortunately for him, even two full-ask offers might not be sufficient.
