"Realtor to the Stars" Discusses Servicing Celebs in '70s Chat

New, 30 comments

Elaine Young made a name for herself selling expensive LA-area homes to people like Elvis Presley, Elizabeth Taylor, Warren Beatty, Burt Reynolds, Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand and Stevie Wonder, and left quite a legacy when she died in 2006. Six years later, people are still talking about her, now thanks to a seventies-era video currently making the internet rounds (Everything Is Terrible posted it originally). Speaking with Tom Snyder, Young coquettishly discusses possibly banging clients in sunken tubs--she was married six times, including once to actor Gig Young--and the glamour of life in LA. The casual racism and elitism (she describes with a bit of horror that some people might have to live in apartments) is highlighted in the video for maximum effect. Make sure to stay until the end, when Young describes her most favorite celebrity client ever--it's a doozy.
