Get To Know The Black Women Taking On Real Estate In ‘Selling Tampa’

Putting the "real" in real estate.

Culture & Entertainment

After the success of Selling Sunset, Netflix has now turned to an all-Black female real estate brokerage in Tampa, Florida to showcase luxurious waterfront property in the picturesque coastal city. Allure Realty was founded by Sharelle Rosado and as the founder and CEO, she is at the helm of the flourishing firm with seven other women rounding out the cast.

In an interview with House Beautiful, the cast gives future viewers a glimpse into their personalities, which provides insight to what people can expect on the debut season of Selling Tampa.

Sharelle Rosado

There’s no question that Sharelle Rosado is the HBIC, but it looks like viewers will also get to see another side to her as she’s expecting a baby girl with former NFL star Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson.

Being a mother, fiancée, and CEO, Sharelle proves to be an inspiration to other women looking to achieve all that they want out of life. However, all that glitters isn’t gold. The 33-year-old revealed that she suffers from PTSD, but according to her, “I don't allow that to stop what I want to achieve in life.”

Juawana Colbert

Juawana Colbert is a real estate agent and office manager at Allure Realty. With her background in economic development and growing up watching her grandfather who owned many apartment units, Juawana has become a top agent at the brokerage.

Rena Upshaw Frazier

Tampa-born and raised realtor Rena Upshaw Frazier has quite an impressive background. Rena has an engineering degree from the University of South Florida and she also has a law degree from Stetson University College of Law. In fact, before being hired on to Allure Realty, the mother of four was a partner at a national law firm.

Colony Reeves

Colony Reeves was a preschool teacher before getting into real estate. Her father is actually the one who suggested a real estate career and she hasn’t looked back since. While she admits that her personality may be “all over the place,” she notes that that is what makes her “adaptable.”

Anne-Sophie Petit-Frere

Born in Haiti, Anne-Sophie Petit-Frere always knew she wanted to be a real estate agent. However, she did have past jobs such as a freelance makeup artist and property accountant. For her, being a real estate agent gives her freedom as she can make her own schedule and manage her own clients.

Tennille Moore

Tennille Moore is more than just a real estate agent. She also has a credit repair business and prior to working at Allure Realty, Tennille worked for the Florida Senate as a chief legislative assistant.

Karla Giorgio

The Venezuelan-born real estate agent has an interesting background. When she was just 16, Karla Giorgio began selling cars at her father’s car dealership and now she is a bit of a car connoisseur.

Alexis Williams

While Alexis Williams loves to party, she is still about her business. This real estate agent is competitive and according to Selling Tampa’s Instagram page, she has “a reputation for tenaciously protecting her customers’ interest.”

Mother To Mother: 6 Things I Wish I Knew Before Having A Child

Before giving birth to my child two-and-a-half years ago, I was one of those women who thought I’d have the basics of child-rearing down. After all, I was in the fourth grade when my brother was born and spent much of my adolescence helping my parents take care of him. My experience with children increased even more when I became an aunt eight times over. I regarded motherhood as something I didn’t have total knowledge of but suspected I wouldn’t be too far off the mark when the time came for me to have a child of my own. Little did I know that there was no amount of practice that could prepare me for what was ahead.
