Red Hot Property is a seriocomic tale about four rookie real esate agents working together to learn the ropes of their new profession. At times hilarious, and other times tragic, it is a novel that will stay in your heart and mind long after you read the last page.
"If there's a Realtor in your life whom you care about, gift them with this book."
"Red Hot Property was hot!!!!!! I couldn't put the book down. I laughed and I cried. It has a little something for everyone. Sexy, humorous and witty!"
-Julia Lazartic, First American Heritage Title Company
"The book is a fun read, but carries serious messages for everyone in the real estate business. Poor Molly faced a lifetime of real estate experiences in just a few months, but the truth is that all of these things have happened and unfortuantely will probably happen again."
-Larry Clifford, Senior Vice President, Sotheby's International Realty
“Red Hot Property was amazing! Underneath the persona of the characters lies a true depiction of our daily lives. Those in the real estate profession will really relate. Those not in the real estate industry should read it to help them understand what we do and appreciate our work.”
-Carol Cizek, Owner-Broker, Re/Max Traditions
“I would recommend all real estate students read Red Hot Property. As well as being highly entertaining, it is a good primer for real life real estate. A really great book!”
-Linn Jensen, Owner-Broker, River Rock Realty

I thoroughly enjoyed the plot and lovable characters. Thanks also for the safety reminder that actually sticks in our memories! Real estate is a very rewarding, and dangerous, profession.

-Jill Allington, Realtor®, Re/Max Traditions
"Red Hot Property is an entertaining novel that takes a tongue-in-cheek view of the inside world of real estate sales. The colorful characters quickly endeared themselves to me. I found myself turning the pages well after midnight to find out what would happen next. Nestled within the unfolding drama are pearls of wisdom. The novel delivers a timely and urgent message that all real estate licensees need to heed…follow safety measures at all times. I recommend that all of our students read this book. The newly licensed will have their eyes opened and the veterans will relish the wacky scenarios that surely mimic some of their own memorable moments in this unpredictable profession."

BOOK OF THE MONTH - Boulder Women's Magazine
Red Hot Property goes inside the heart of balancing a career and family...
Colorado author and real estate agent, Devin O'Branagan, takes readers behind the "for sale" signs in her new novel, Red Hot Property. The book stars Molly O'Malley and a team of rookie real estate agents starting out at the hottest brokerage in town. Molly is witty and charming, but also vulnerable as she tries to make it in a dog-eat-dog career so she can make a better life for her daughter, while also looking for love for herself. Molly is a single mom, but all moms can relate to her struggle to find harmony while balancing a career and motherhood. The story displays in stark rawness, how what we do for our children's best interest can harm them, particularly when focusing solely on the financial security of the family. It's an accurate portrayal of how money changes people. O'Branagan has adeptly highlighted the risks that real estate agents take to make the sale. In addition to being entertained by the characters and the suspense of the novel, readers will be moved by the financial and safety risks of the profession. Locals will recognize Boulder in the fictional city of Blackstone, and familiar Colorado attitudes in the book's characters. O'Branagan has captured an all-inclusive snapshot of colorful Colorado's Front Range and the depth of the residents. Animals are key characters in the book. As a dog lover and avid supporter of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah, O'Branagan is holding a raffle through December. The raffle winner's animal companion will land a leading role in the sequel to Red Hot Property. Check out the web site at www.RedHotNovel.com for more information on the raffle, the novel and the characters of this captivating new read. -by Lyn Rinehart
