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

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.”

Victoria Monét's 'The Jaguar Tour' Is A Lesson In The Art Of Performing

There’s people who perform songs, and then there’s performers, and let me tell you something: Victoria Monét is a PERFORMER. I first fell in love with her as an artist after hearing her hit song “Moment,” and then when her album JAGUAR was released in 2020, I was hooked. JAGUAR was one of those albums that I kept on repeat as I and the rest of the world were going through the motions of being in a pandemic. I remember watching her perform her single “Jaguar” from the album on her YouTube channel, and the way she performed so effortlessly with such confidence, I knew I had to see her live.
