There's a reason why shows about the filthy rich easily gain traction. Aside from getting a peek into a lifestyle far from ours, there's the satisfaction from seeing their ludicrously extravagant properties, ever-present in the background. This is true for shows like The Real Housewives series, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, or even Korean dramas like Sky Castle and Mine.

Netflix recently plunged into the genre, but this time the lavish homes take front and center. Their latest buzz-worthy reality series, The Parisian Agency: Exclusive Properties, chronicles a French real estate agency run by one tight-knit and driven family—The Kretzs.

Heads of the household Olivier and Sandrine Kretz, along with their four sons Martin, Valentin, Louis, and Raphael (the only one still in school) work together in their equally impressive Parisian home to sell their clients' luxury properties. When we say luxury, we mean over-the-top homes for the one percent us ordinary folks can only dream of. We're talking 12 million Euro estates with retractable pools, dreamy mansions, and, we kid you not, a centuries old castle!

Having gained attention on the platform last month, The Parisian Agency's strength lies in the fact that it's not formatted like your usual straight-laced real estate show. More than just the houses they sell, the Kretz family's personal lives make up the heart of the series— from their professional woes, to Martin's wedding, and to their grandmother Majo's attempt at jumping back into the dating world. Heck, even their significant others get a piece of the screen time, too.

In particular, there's second son Valentin's wife, Filipina designer Charina Sarte, who moved to France after tying the knot with the French charmer in Morocco. While we don't see her performing the trade she's best known for, we do get interesting tidbits about her marriage with Valentin scattered across the series.

Here's an interesting one: Episode four finds the couple on a romantic date at a restaurant near the Louvre to celebrate their two-year anniversary. While reminiscing about the beginnings of their relationship, which started around six years ago, we learn that they both lied to each other about their ages when first they met! It was an unknowingly mutual choice that gave Charina, who's actually 12 years older than Valentin, a real scare after she caught a glimpse of his passport. "I think that moment when I looked at your passport, I almost got a heart attack," recalled the Filipina designer during their conversation. Fortunately, the pair didn't let the revelation, and their marked cultural differences, get in the way of their budding love affair.
