Diles is a former professional football player and has since suited up for a new type of game: real estate.

The stakes are high as Ajani learns to put her money where her mouth is, which jeopardizes Erik’s A-list clientele.
Despite her young age, she is a force to be reckoned with. She has the charm, smarts and beauty to reel in new clients, but her fiery temper often lands her in hot water, leaving her career in jeopardy. Working under Tai’s wing, Taylor begins to wonder if the “grass is greener” when fellow real estate competitor Andrew Clinkscale offers her a position.
