Real estate reality TV family publishes fictional novel

Book based on real-life experiences at Manhattan boutique brokerage

A Manhattan real estate agent is walking a client through a swanky Park Avenue open house, when the client’s buddy — who claims to have a debilitating fear of heights — decides that being on the 16th floor is just too much to cope with, and promptly throws up in the powder room toilet.

It’s a vignette within a new novel revolving around the world of big-ticket New York real estate, where such behavior is generally considered undesirable.
