Sold takes a fly-on-the-wall look at Melbourne's real estate industry. Set in the leafy, prosperous inner suburbs, it follows the fortunes and misfortunes of three agents as they jostle,thrive and try to survive. It reveals the routines, the listing tricks and the subtle intimidation used to motivate staff and prospective vendors at Prender and Prender Real Estate. New real estate agent and failed footballer, Will, is taken under the wing of The Fox, who has to resort to some pretty shonky workplace interactions just to stay in the market. Straight away, Will is helping The Fox on what appears to be a meals-on-wheels delivery. But why isn't Mrs McEvoy answering her door? When the two of them conjure up a plan to enablethem to do some proper listing, it seems like a no-brainer - if it wasn't for Dally Love and his smooth talking… Sold is the first in a series, in the tradition of Updike's Rabbit trilogy, with a style reminiscent of Franzen's The Corrections, Tony Wilson's Players and Richard Beasley's Hell Has Harbour Views. This tale of intrigue, which brings to mind Glengarry Glen Ross, will make it difficult to look a real estate agent in the eye again! With Sold, Sleepers is heralding an exciting new talent in Brendan Gullifer.
