Hollywood discovers Realtor, songwriter

About Us: People in Real Estate

The premier event for luxury agents and brokers
Luxury Connect | Oct. 16-18 | Beverly Hills

Just about the time Dennis Lambert was noticing that the phone in his real estate office wasn’t ringing so much, Hollywood called.

It was no big deal, really — only that actor Steve Carell was interested in making a film about Lambert’s life.

Lambert seems to take this little thunderbolt rather calmly, as if it’s just one more interesting detour in a life that has wandered over multiple maps.

"It’s a little crazy, my story," said Lambert, 63, acknowledging with considerable understatement that he’s probably the only real estate agent in Boca Raton, Fla., who also has a wall full of gold records, garnered in an earlier life as a songwriter and music producer.
