15-year-old Raul dreams of one day working as realtor in New York City. When asked about his one true wish, the answer was clear. Raul wished to meet his idols, the realtors of Million Dollar Listing, New York.
Upon his arrival in New York City, Raul traveled to a high end property to await realtor Fredrik Eklund. While waiting, Raul spoke with both the crew and director who shared great behind the scenes information. When Fredrik arrived, he gave Raul an exclusive tour of the property and proceeded to film part of an episode. Raul was able to follow along with the director, and was even wired up to hear the crew communicating through his headphones!
After his visit to the set, Raul and his guests were invited to lunch (the Million Dollar Listing crew heard that Chinese was Raul’s favorite). While at lunch, Raul was able to meet the other two realtors from the cast, Luis Ortiz and Ryan Serhant. They spent the entire meal discussing all things real estate! They then presented Raul with a signed poster and a very special gift. They heard he wanted to be a broker when he got older, so they presented him with a framed certificate stating when he gets his real estate license, he can bring a copy to their agency and he is guaranteed a job!
Just when he thought this day couldn’t get any better, Raul was told there was still another surprise in store. Luis and Fredrick met Raul at his hotel and took him in a limousine to Yankee Stadium, where they all watched Derek Jeter’s last game from the General Manager’s box.
When asked about his wish, Raul told us “Thank you Make-A-Wish for making my dream come true…it was an amazing experience that I will never forget.”
