So, it is very important to make your self known and learn how to take in information. Also, remember that your first impression is your last impression.” said Banks.


When  asked about the amount of shade that was thrown  while filming and how the audience can learn from the women she replied with saying: “I don’t think the shade is toward the real estate business, I think it is toward the different personalities in the room, because when you put seven women on a show together there will be  a lot of shade thrown. People take real estate very personal, they wear it on their sleeve, eat, sleep, and breathe the business. Those are the people who want everyone to believe the morals, professionalism, and the image. Although, those might not be the happy people but they will be able to appreciate the show. So when everyone goals are a little different you tend to see a lot of techniques the women use.”

“Every girl has a different technique so I know what everyone is good at, and I know what type of property they  like to sell. Real estate have so many areas but to last in this business you have to know how to cover all areas to be able  keep that person and close that deal. So, it is very important know how to sell all of real estate while also finding your niche. ”

Banks was also asked about the sex chair that was featured on the episode, she replied with: “I have been told that I make others comfortable around me. I wanted  to put them in a real estate environment but also wanted to see learn about them on a more personal level and how they represent themselves.

When I started my brokerage firm, I did it because I was tired of giving away a percentage of my check. So I got my broker license, the word got out that I was opening my firm so many people who wanted to work for me started calling me. So now I have two powerhouse agents.”
