1. Glengarry Glen Ross (1992), Drama starring Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon and Alec Baldwin

Our favorite here at Cambridge Realty Group! When an office full of New York City real estate salesmen is given the news that all but the top two will be fired at the end of the week, the atmosphere begins to heat up... The Drama is well known for Alec Baldwin’s “motivating” speech. If you work in sales you should be familiar with his character’s famous line: “Always be closing“. Alec Baldwin was nominated for an Oscar for that movie and that’s the only scene he’s in…

2. I Love You Man (2009), starring Paul Rudd, Rashida Jones and Jason Segel

In this comedy, a Realtor who’s trying to move his way up in his firm is attempting to find a friend who’ll become his Best Man in his upcoming wedding. One of the better recent ‘buddy comedies’!


3. American Beauty (1999), starring Kevin Spacey and Annette Bening

An ambitious but failed real-estate broker and her husband, who’s going through a mid-life crisis, live their seemingly dull lives in middle class suburbia. What follows in this cult drama is at once cynical, hysterical, and, eventually, tragically uplifting.


4. Poltergeist (1982), Horror, starring JoBeth Williams and Craig T. Nelson

Steven, a successful Realtor, and his wife Diane live in a quiet, brand new Californian suburb. But their carefree lives change on the night when a spirit leaps from their television.Initially friendly and playful, the spirits turn unexpectedly menacing…One of the 1980s’ most distinctive and important horror movies. A real classic!


5. Open House (1987), Horror/ Drama, starring Adrienne Barbeau and Joseph Bottoms

In this horror movie, a radio psychologist receives strange phone calls from a serial killer who has been murdering various female real estate agents in Beverly Hills. His girlfriend, who is also a real estate agent, may be the killer’s next victim…A very good twisted tale. Entertaining from start to finish.
