Mega Mansion Hunters on Channel 4: What it’s about and why it’s tipped to be UK’s version of Netflix’s Selling Sunset

If you’re missing your fix of Netflix’s Selling Sunset and are eagerly awaiting the next series, Channel 4’s new program may be the answer.

The brand-new reality TV show, Mega Mansion Hunters, follows the lives of UK estate agents selling homes at the top end of the country’s luxury property market.

The three-part series is centered around London-based estate agent Tyron Ash and his best-selling agents, who are competing to sell high-end homes for as much as £40 million.

But as they are paid on commission only, working in the high-end property sector is ruthlessly competitive and cut-throat.

Full of dreamy mansions, glamorous agents and not forgetting the drama, the show is tipped to be the UK’s equivalent of Netflix’s popular hit show, Selling Sunset.

The estate agency, based in London’s Berkeley Square, has over 80 people working for it but only a select few are featured on the Channel 4 series.

Two of the stars of the show, business owner Tyron Ash and agent Chloe Cable, joined Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning earlier today to reveal what viewers can expect.

In an exclusive first-clip, Tyron Ash said: “We are literally turning estate agency on its head.”

The trailer then revealed that the Tyron Ash’s agency has sold nearly £300 million worth of property in just a year and a half.

Tyron, whose first home he sold when he first started out as an estate agent was £27,000, told the This Morning presenters: “I was working three weekends out of the four, clocking in early and clocking out late and I got very frustrated with Item.

“It wasn’t the property industry I didn’t love, it was the way the industry was set up. It didn’t offer the progression of other countries like America or Australia that we idolize.”

Tyron revealed he was arrested in 2015 for attempting to supply Class A drugs and was sentenced to 40 months in prison, but after his release his entire life changed.

Tyron began researching how the ‘world’s best’ were doing real estate in other countries, and one way was using social media platforms such as Instagram to promote the mega mansions.

“My biggest driver was to be the most-followed UK estate agent,” he said, now with 136,000 followers on Instagram.

“I was engaging audiences with walk-through tours and engaging content, and suddenly sellers were coming to me and wanting me to market their properties to a national, international and digital market.”

Tyron revealed his estate agents sell homes from £800,000 all the way up to £40 million.

The commission rate is 2.5%, so on a £1 million property the estate agents could earn £25,000 commission.

Estate agent Chloe, who is just 20-years-old, made £28,000 in her first month of working for Tyron.

“Between agents there have been fall outs and some people have tried to do deals behind the scenes,” she revealed.

“It’s such a highly stressful environment that we’re in so if we don’t get on it can all crumble down.

“Naturally there is some conflict sometimes.”

Mega Mansion Hunters starts tonight at 10pm on Channel 4.
