When it comes to the property Parasite, honestly, anyone would also kill to live there…or work with a REMAX agent to get their foot in the door.

While the movie was a fun watch, the house was a visual feast. Your eyes will wish they could undo their top button they’ll be so full of beauty.

The open concept living space, the minimalist aesthetic, and that garden, just wow, truly to die for!

Upon first entry, you’ll see how flawless the home is. Sleek design. Modern furniture. Hosting spaces galore. Honestly, it’s surprising the house wasn’t top billing in the credits list. The home is so pristine; it’s like a Swedish furniture catalog took steroids. One might say the best steroids on the market.

The backyard is also stunning. Large and open. The lawn is so lush your RE/MAX agent would ask you to take your shoes off before stepping on the grass. You could throw a birthday party with ease. We’ll even find the right help you can trust!

Even the basement feels perfect. The house’s multifunctional space is like a Swiss Army knife for real estate. Storage? Man cave? Secret hideaway? You haven’t seen a lower level this intriguing since that guy who built an eel sanctuary in his basement. Plus, you could easily rent it out; hello extra income! Previous tenants loved their spot so much, they almost didn’t want to leave.

Overall, despite maybe a murder (or two) happening there, this property deserves 5/5 stars for all its beauty.

As Good As It Gets

5 / 5

The starring penthouse in “As Good As It Gets” is truly as good as it gets. Or as good as $3.9M and a RE/MAX agent will get you in New York. Nestled in the bustling streets of Manhattan, 302 Greenwich is a one-of-a-kind condo that’s the epitome of quirky charm mixed with urban convenience.

First impressions? Well, let’s just say this place has more character than the acting from Greg Kinnear. And he’s great in this film. From the moment you step inside, you’ll be greeted with that New York charm.

The space is also as pristine and organized as can be. Like a well-written romance novel, it pulls you in and keeps you captivated no matter what part. Plus, with ample storage, even with an extensive soap collection, you’ll still have plenty of space for anything else.

Now, a REMAX agent would point out the kitchen may not be your traditional gourmet setup, but it does have everything you need to whip up a mean grilled cheese sandwich or microwave dinner! Better yet, the view from the window offers a unique New York view (the neighboring fire escape). Who doesn’t love a good view?

In terms of location, you couldn’t ask for better! Situated in the heart of Manhattan, you’ll have easy access to all the city has to offer, from world-class dining to Broadway shows to… well, let’s just say interesting encounters with the locals.

One note. Yes, there is a dog next door. And no, he’s not exactly Lassie. But hey, he’s got his own brand of charm, and if you’re a fan of canine companionship, you’ll have a built-in buddy to keep you company.

Overall, 302 Greenwich Street may not be your cookie-cutter dream home, but it’s got its own New York personality! If you’re in the market for a place that’s as unique as you are, look no further. 5/5 stars.

Who wouldn’t want to live in the iconic Barbie Dream House? It literally has ‘Dream House’ built into its name. Pink walls. Pink carpet. Pink appliances. Pink is not just a colour—it’s a lifestyle! And all at the dream price of $174.98 (not necessarily to scale).

First note, this house is an open concept, but an open concept in the fact that there are no outer walls. However, the moment you step through the sparkling pink door and into the foyer, you’ll be greeted by a majestic staircase adorned with a crystal chandelier that any REMAX Agent would point out first.

And let’s talk about the living room! Here elegance meets playfulness in the most delightful way possible. You’ll be living in this room. From lounging on the plush pink sofa with your friends to making imaginary cocktails at the Barbie-sized mini bar, this space was made for hosting get-togethers almost every single day.

Now the kitchen is a culinary paradise fit for a gourmet goddess. Easily whip up a batch of pink pancakes on the sparkly countertops, or try your hand at baking in the fully-stocked cupcake corner complete with a rainbow sprinkle dispenser.

Stepping into the bedroom, prepare to be dazzled by the ultimate pink sanctuary. Starting your mornings here will always help you float through the day. From the canopy bed adorned with fluffy pink pillows to the walk-in closet, this bedroom will inevitably cure any depression.

Saving the best for last, we have the backyard—a tropical paradise straight out of a postcard from Malibu. Lounge by the pool, or soak up the sun on the pink sun loungers while listening to the sound of the waves crashing against the shore. Life in the Barbie Dream House is nothing short of paradise!

Side note: Not feeling the pink? Rather than starting a revolution, simply work with one of our REMAX Agents to find your own Mojo Casa Dojo House.

Overall, if you’re in the market for a home that’s as fabulous as you are, look no further than the Barbie Dream House. 5/5 stars.

Poor Things

5 / 5

There’s something special about the rich architecture in the home at 42 Caledonia Street in Poor Things. Truly a whimsical wonderland one can get lost in, or also come back to find themselves.

Upon entering the foyer, you’ll be greeted by a grand staircase adorned with antique banisters and a chandelier that’s seen more drama than a kid going through puberty.

The living room is a veritable treasure trove of curiosities and conversation pieces. With a floor as soft as a bed, from the grand piano to velvet armchairs that beckon you to sink in and ponder life, every corner of this room is a testament to the art of eccentric living.

Now, the kitchen/dining area is where culinary adventures await! Channel your inner Julia Child as you whip up a meal on the retro stove and oven combo straight out of a 1950s diner. Or feast your heart at a dining table worthy of royalty. From enjoying your first meal, to having “the talk”, this is the table where you’ll learn a lot about life.

However, the pièce de résistance: the view. Out on the terrace, you’ll be able to take in the whole city and look to where you want to discover.

Last but certainly not least, we have the backyard. One step outside and you’ll be enchanted by the whimsical garden oasis that awaits. From the vintage swing set that’s perfect for channeling your inner child to a lawn and garden worthy of sipping champagne beside, this outdoor retreat is a sanctuary of serenity and silliness. (Backyard includes a human pet goat. Further information can be provided.)

In conclusion, if you’re in the market for a home valued at around 4 million that’s as quirky as it is charming, look no further than 42 Caledonia Street.

The Godfather

5 / 5

The Estate in The Godfather is the type of place where every room tells a story, and the ambiance is as rich as the olives grown on the land.

First, we have to pay our respects to the grand foyer, where the marble floors and imposing staircase exude old-world elegance.

While the kitchen is a bit of a tighter space, it’s still a bustling hub of activity where you can either catch up with the gang or make meatballs all day. No matter what you’re cooking up, there’s still plenty of space to store all your cannolis, pasta, or “dough”.

Outside in the garden, you’ll instantly be whisked away to Sicily with the scent of lemon trees and olive groves. Take a stroll along the cobblestone path and admire the Olympic-sized swimming pool. Feel like you’re swimming with the fishes any day you want.

The bedroom is a luxurious sanctuary fit for the father of it all. From the king-sized bed draped in silk that could fit a horse to the ornate mahogany furnishings, this room exudes power and prestige.

Our exploration reaches its pinnacle with “The Corleone Office,” a crucial setting that contributes to the home’s rich legacy. Within these walls, closing any deal becomes an art, and your Zoom calls become a showcase of envy-inducing backdrops.

If you’re in the market for a home that’s as storied as it is stylish, look no further than the Godfather Estate.

Pro tip: This house last hit the market at $125M, so if you’re interested, make an offer they can’t refuse.
