SYNOPSIS
Sangenya Machi is a very successful real estate agent who claims that there is no house that she cannot sell. She works at the Teiko Real Estate company, and the top management transfers her to different office branches with poor sales performance every couple of months.

Machi was recently transferred to the Teiko branch office in Shinjuku. Her colleagues don't know how to deal with the extremely beautiful and top-performing salesperson who has terrible social skills.



REVIEW
Ie Uru Onna is an interesting drama about a successful real estate agent, and how she inadvertently helps her clients even though she's only concerned about selling houses and earning a lot of money.

Although Sangenya Machi has dreadful social skills, she can figure out what potential clients want and need in a house. She sells houses to her clients that's perfect for them and their lifestyle, even though these properties are entirely different to what they claim they are looking for.

Personally, I have misgivings about how it seems that Machi knows her clients better than they know themselves. I don't like how she doesn't listen to what her clients say, and sells them houses that she thinks they need instead.

I mean, I don't think people are exactly how we think they are, because how we see them is influenced by our own biases and misconceptions. I like to think that we are the only ones who can truly know ourselves, especially if we're being really honest with ourselves.

Anyway, I like how Machi doesn't speak when she doesn't have anything relevant to say because I'm exactly like her in that regard. Although people think that she has strange mannerisms, I like how she's always composed and I wish I have her so-called poker face.

The drama is about working as a real estate agent, from how to sell a property to how the profession has evolved over time. I think people who work in the real estate industry should watch Ie Uru Onna, especially if they are real estate agents and real estate brokers.
