While most brokers are content to just use their time off to tend to their gardens or bathe in their champagne-filled solid gold bathtubs, Elliman's Rick Kelly is out there doing the Lord's work: writing dance-pop hits for German girl groups. The Real Deal has the amusing story of Kelly, who was a professional musician before getting into real estate. Now he's in charge of sales at the Tribeca Summit, as well as co-writing the current #1 single in Germany for a group named Monrose, entitled "Work It." We're not sure if these lasses know what they're singing, but we agree with the following YouTube commenter: "its a nicse song, all the songs of them are good !!!"
