‘Million Dollar Listing’ Broker Kirsten Jordan on the 1 NYC Real Estate Pandemic Trend That’s Here to Stay


“Million Dollar Listing New York” finally cast a female broker — just in time for the city that never sleeps to become the epicenter for COVID-19. Everything changed in Kirsten Jordan’s profession at pretty much the same time she added “reality TV star” to her resume. We all hope the latest deadly coronavirus is on the outs, but are any of its business lessons here to stay?

The biggest trends Jordan has observed — other than the flight to the suburbs, we imagine — are “the sight-unseen purchase” and the “virtual showing,” she told TheWrap.

Pressure’s on with those online house tours, Kirsten — especially when, by the very title of your show, we’re dealing with big-money properties.

Jordan, who said she foresees those trends outlasting COVID, was texting with a buyer about a sight-unseen deal during our interview (not profesh, Kirsten). “These are savvy real estate investors that are stuck in Martha’s Vineyard right now and they still want to buy this apartment,” she said.

Tough life.

In her market of New York City, home inspections are not actually all that common considering most deals are on apartments and not single family houses. That fact turns up the heat on agents — and even more on attorneys.

But Jordan isn’t worried — and neither are her FaceTime clients.

“With the right real estate agent, it’s totally fine. And with certain buildings, if you’ve already been in them or you know the developer, it also could be fine,” Jordan said. “The lucky thing about Manhattan is we have attorneys that are protecting us in these situations.”
