Luxe Listings Sydney is one of Amazon Prime’s top-performing shows globally

Luxe Listings Sydney, a real estate show that gives viewers a sneak peek into the millionaire lifestyle, has become a global hit for Amazon Prime Video.

The popular series, produced by Kyle Sandilands, follows four top-flight real estate agents as they strike multimillion-dollar deals in Sydney’s pricey market.

Despite being launched with the Australian market in mind, the show has proved to be an international success story, reports Variety Australia.

Amazon Prime Video does not disclose its viewing figures, but the platform announced last week that Luxe Listings Sydney, now in its second season, was a worldwide ‘top performer’. 

‘It really did kind of capture people’s attention and captured this kind of social zeitgeist,’ said Tyler Bern, Head of Content for Amazon Prime Video in Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

Bern told Variety the show was so popular because of the global demand for program about high-end real estate.

It has been so successful, in fact, that the streaming giant is looking to take the Luxe Listings format global.

Bern said Luxe Listings fitted perfectly into the streamer’s goal of producing unscripted content that gives audiences a ‘guilty pleasure’ experience.

He explained the show drove the social conversation with ‘edge-of-the-seat moments’ that left them wondering what might happen next.

One of the local executive producers of the show, Chris Culvenor, the CEO of Eureka Productions, told Variety the stars deserve some credit for the show’s success.

The sometimes friendly rivalries between real estate gurus Monika Tu, Gavin Rubenstein, D’Leanne Lewis and Simon Cohen, resonated strongly with audiences, Culvenor said.

Earlier this month, Kyle Sandilands, who produces Luxe Listings through his company King Kyle, confirmed the show would be renewed for a third season.

Much of the drama ensues as the agents ruthlessly try to one-up each other and compete to sell the most impressive and alluring properties.

During the first season, the agents showcased some of the most breathtaking homes Sydney has on offer, with unique designs, luxurious inclusions, scenic beachside views and harbour backdrops.

The second season introduced new agent Monika as she joined the original trio.

Her firm Black Diamondz sells more than $200million worth of property annually and cleared about $85million in just three months this year. 

Season three will be available to stream in 240 countries and territories in late 2022.
