This week on the Over Ask Podcast, Tyler Whitman joins Matt Lionetti and The Broke Agent to discuss how meeting an agent on Craigslist (who was looking for a roommate) changed his life. He talks about how different the reality of being an agent was from his perception of it (pre-license) and how he almost gave up on it before he found an ivy league client, who referred him to others. 

Tyler also shares how he met Bobby Flay and sold his home (with a “chef-inspired kitchen”), and how, after that, he was bombarded with catfishing attempts—which, at some point, had him so jaded that he hung up on the casting director for Million Dollar Listing NY

From there, the conversation turns to how his life and career have changed since starring on the show and what led to his meeting with Glennda Baker and starting the Glitter & Gay Podcast with her.
