Selling Tampa season 1 feels like a volcano ready to explode.

This review of the Netflix reality series Selling Tampa season 1 does not contain spoilers.

Netflix has caught the bug. With Selling Sunset rising to the top in the reality category, the streaming service could not help itself. Embrace the concept, and making it into a monster appears to be the strategy of the business. And here we have it, Selling Sunset officially has its universe (the Selling Universe?). Selling Tampa is now a part of it.

But there are differences in Selling Tampa, particularly in its message and the business setup of the agency. The company represented and led by Sharelle Rosado prides itself in an all-black, all-female team. There’s pride in conquering an affluent area with a black-owned business. But that’s not all; this business is at the beginning. While it’s enjoying success, it still has a lot to prove to grow, so Sharelle has to navigate her staff, find weak links, and help them prosper. A massive difference to Selling Sunset, which is already a fully established and successful firm.

So with the stakes high, Selling Tampa has all the potential drama and a “dog eat dog world” attitude to keep your eyes peeled. It has the same production feel as its universe, but it also feels fresh and new with new agents to follow and their compelling lives. We’ve had way too much Christina Quinn of late; it’s time for new stories and new dramas.

Selling Tampa is initially tentative by nailing the business aspect and the aggressive market of real estate. However, the series slowly leans towards the drama once it beds in. The cocktail meet-ups filled with gossip, the backstabbing plans, the snakes, and the pent-up tension that leads to arguments. Do not let the start of Selling Tampa deceive you; there’s plenty of drama bubbling that sets a base for a few seasons.

Will Selling Tampa successfully rival its counterpart? I see no reason why it shouldn’t. Of course, there’s always a risk that audiences will feel the concept is getting stagnant. But reality is reality at the end of the day, and if there’s enough drama to go around, it will always keep viewers on board. Selling Tampa season 1 feels like a volcano ready to explode. Let’s see what season 2 brings.
