On this edition of “Keeping it real,” a recurring series on Inman, Peter Lorimer shares how he got his new Netflix show, Stay Here.

Listen to the fascinating story unfold in the full podcast and tune in to watch Lorimer travel the U.S., with cohost Genevieve Gorder, giving expert advice to turn failing Airbnb rentals into gold, in Stay Here, on Netflix now.

“This opportunity fell out of the sky … (sorta), but really it happened because I’ve been pounding and pounding and pounding on the same path, in an unstoppable manner, for over two years now. I was unshakable in my belief that the direction I was headed in was the right one. And it was a gamble that has paid off,” Lorimer said.

He responded to an email casting call, which is out of character for him, and after an audition, meeting with producers and a “chemistry test,” he was almost in.

“I still went in there balls to the wall, living by one of my mantras, ‘I’m never afraid to make the wrong move — I’d rather make all the wrong moves than never make any,'” he said.

That unique and genuine approach that proves key in all his real estate business ventures also proved to be key in this one, helping seal the deal and landing him the dream gig.

Peter Lorimer is the CEO of Beverly Hills, California-based PLG Estates.
