Reality vs Realty E14
Carla is a HUGE fan of reality tv shows, so when she was approached about appearing on one, of course she said YES! On this episode of Smashing, Carla dishes all the behind the scenes dirt with fellow realtors Brandi and Belinda who also joined the cast of the show. They talk about what really happened, what it was like meeting & working with the one & only Grant Cardone, and melting in the middle of the Phoenix summer doing take after take.
Everyone has seen a reality show or two based on real estate and wondered what it’s really like behind the scenes. How much of it is scripted or rehearsed? Listen in and find out from those who have actually been there!
Belinda Li is a Phoenix Native and has been in the real estate industry for 6 years. She started out flipping properties and then moved into brokering and helping other investors find deals.
She is a mother to a 6 year old daughter who has been her inspiration for taking the leap into real estate investing and entrepreneurship. In her free time she enjoys hiking, yoga and reading metaphysical books.
Brandi Heltzel is an Arizona Native who grew up in the small town of Prescott. Most of her days were spent helping at her Papa’s furniture store where she fell in love with design and all things home decor.
This passion grew into an obsession with transformation and led her to real estate. She loves remodeling and renovating her investment properties as well as helping clients design the home of their dreams.
About the Show

About Our Host
Carla Magee’s background is designed with the investor in mind. After obtaining her finance degree from the University of Washington in Seattle, she worked for large corporations like Boeing and Microsoft. With a critical eye and flair for analytics, she was able to shave millions in lost profits, managing cross-functional teams by utilizing her Green Belt in Six Sigma and Masters Certification in Project Management.
Ultimately she realized that she couldn’t be contained in an office environment working for the corporate world. Being an investor herself, she came into real estate as an investment & multifamily property specialist, effectively applying her education & skillset. Carla excels in helping investors make sound decisions for their financial goals, in real estate negotiations, and takes deep pride in educating homebuyers and sellers.
On a personal note, Carla is a busy wife & mother to two daughters. In addition to an ever growing career and podcast, she also enjoys volunteering and being active in the community. She has a deep love for Arizona and although she travels whenever possible, she always finds her way back to the beautiful Sonoran Desert.
