Real estate is right at home on reality TV, from "Selling Sunset" to "Love It or List It." But how real is it, really?

We're getting the scoop from Jason and Molly Mesnick, two actual real estate agents who just happen to be veterans of one of the most famous and influential reality TV shows ever: "The Bachelor."

With an insider perspective on reality TV and real-world expertise in real estate, the duo will dish on some of the most popular series and offer a dose of actual reality. Do team members really try to take each other down? Do agents always mix their personal and professional lives? Is real estate more drama than deals?

Meet Jason and Molly — who've managed to defy the odds as a successful Bachelor couple and work together while raising kids over the course of their 12-year marriage — and get a preview of what's to come on Reality Check from Real Estate News.


Jason and Molly Mesnick are likely best known for their time on ABC's hit show The Bachelor. They met on the reality series in 2009 and married the following year. Currently residing in Kirkland, Washington, with their 2 kids (Ty, 18 and Riley, 9), Jason and Molly run a successful real estate business.

Jason has been in the industry for over 10 years with $200M + in transactions. Molly joined the team a couple of years ago, and together, they have built out a team of top agents in the Seattle area. Their goal is to make their clients the most money, as quickly as possible, with the least amount of stress.
