Nasreen the realtor in Beverly Hills is like Kathy Najimy
In Book 1 The Beijing Family, Kara brings Simon Wang to view a mansion for sale in Beverly Hills and they meet Nasreen, a bubbly, high energy and aggressive realtor with a pear shaped figure and a huge flower pinned to her jacket. With Persians representing 20% of the population in Beverly Hills, I developed Nasreen mainly from personal experience in working with many Persian realtors. But Kathy Najimy, the funny and witty Lebanese American actress in the movie, 'Sister Act' comes to mind when I think of Nasreen.
