Open auditions will be held at the Madison Theatre in Albany (1036 Madison Avenue) starting at 9 a.m. on Friday, September 11, for “The Real Estate Commission,” a new competitive reality TV show set to air on Amazon Prime in late January 2021.

Sixteen series contestants will be coached through their first year as a real estate agent by four competing brokers: Vera Cohen of Vera Cohen Realty, Todd Drowlette of Titan Commercial Realty Group, Anthony Gucciardo of Gucciardo Real Estate Group and Kevin Parisi of TRG Cos.

“Get the opportunity to work with New York’s top brokers and learn how to become a successful real estate agent, learn how to build a brand, learn how to flip homes, and learn how to develop real estate learning step by step with personal instruction from your new mentors,” the series website advertises.

“The series will be the first of its kind, showing in real-time the process of potentially becoming one of New York’s next big real estate agents,” producers said in a statement. “The series will document new agents each step of the way, as they go from getting their initial license through their first 365 days to becoming successful, being coached by New York’s top agents.”

Contestants will be selected based on the following characteristics: strong willed, outgoing, hard-working, self-motivated, works well with others, interesting lifestyle/background/personality.
