Could ‘Selling Charlotte’ be the next ‘Selling Sunset’ spin-off? I can only hope.

Driving the news: Sharelle Rosado, the “Selling Tampa” star and owner of Allure Realty, announced Tuesday that she is expanding the brokerage’s footprint in the Carolinas. Chief Broker Kristina Delgado will lead the local office, serving Mecklenburg and its surrounding 18 counties.

The context: The Netflix blockbuster spin-off “Selling Sunset” is set in the Tampa Bay area and centers on Rosado and his team of stylish agents as they attempt to find buyers for Tampa’s luxury homes.

  • When “Selling Tampa” premiered in December 2021, it landed in the no. 1 spot on Netflix’s most-watched shows.
  • I binge-watched the reality series and wrote about it for our friends at Axios Tampa Bay a few months ago.

Why is this important: Rosado says on the show that a black woman in luxury real estate is a rarity in Tampa, and that statement extends far beyond Florida.

  • New “Selling Sunset” cast member Chelsea Lazkani also speaks out about the lack of black women in the industry, telling Refinery21, “I took this opportunity knowing that I could hopefully be a role model for d other black women and other women of color who want to enter this hugely lucrative industry.

Could Charlotte be next?

We’ve got no shortage of luxury listings, like this $3.9 million Myers Park mansion with an underground speakeasy or the so-called “Baby Biltmore” that went from CEO to CEO or the lakeside castle. that Christian McCaffrey would have bought.

The ball is in your court, Netflix. (I’m waiting for your email.)
