In early 2014, Sean Conlon started working with CNBC on their new flagship real estate show for the network. Several years later, THE DEED: CHICAGO premiered on March 29. The 4-week series explores a side of real estate that other property shows ignore—an unflinching look at how fortunes are really made in the unpredictable and cutthroat world of real estate flipping and development.
In each of the one-hour episodes, THE DEED: CHICAGO follows Sean as he throws distressed developers a lifeline by offering them his own cash and expertise in exchange for a piece of the property and a percentage of the profits. Once a deal is struck, Sean stops at nothing to pull these properties out of the red, even if that means firing contractors, rolling up his sleeves and doing the work himself.
As viewers see in each episode, developers’ profits can quickly turn to dust, but with the right experienced partner like Sean, lives and fortunes can change with just one deal.
