Which is harder, finding The One in property or finding The One in love?
What better question to ask Michael Turnbull, finalist in this year’s The Bachelorette?
He’s a soccer player turned real estate agent who is one of the two remaining suitors trying to win Sam Frost’s heart.
He spoke to Domain recently about that particular riddle, and was unequivocal: “I think definitely finding The One in property is much easier. Finding The One in love is proving to be a challenge up until this point.”
He couldn’t help but speculate further — on property.
“It is a beautiful home, an older home, but it is stunning nonetheless,” he told Domain of The Bachelorette mansion.
“Without seeing any comparable sales, I think it is (valued) somewhere in the range of about $12 million to $15 million, because of the location on the water, and it is quite a large block. It’s just a beautiful location – nice and private.”
Somebody pass me my fan!
Some people say that Michael Turnbull’s short career as a professional soccer player has been somewhat overblown on this season of The Bachelorette.
His opening gambit to Sam Frost was to tell her about his time playing for the Socceroos, and also competing at the Olympics.
He may have stretched the truth a little there, though he is part of a profession known for the utmost decency and honesty of its practitioners.
Not that there’s anything wrong with being a real estate agent. But if you think you’re getting David Beckham and you end up with Phil Dunphy, well, you might be a little disgruntled.
We sincerely hope that Sam Frost knows that this is the true Michael Turnbull.
These days, Turnbull’s kicking goals in the real estate arena. Did you know that if he doesn’t sell your home within 21 days, he’ll do it commission-free?
If he wins this thing tomorrow, they had better show Sam’s reaction to finding out he’s a real estate agent, is all I have to say, although he rejects that title.
“I don’t consider myself a real estate agent, per se,” he told Domain. I wonder what he’ll tell Sam?
