Tracy Tutor leads a full life. As a career woman and a mother, she must balance her schedule in order to continue seeking success in business while maintaining a positive environment in her home. If you’re not familiar with Tutor’s name or face, you should know that she made history as the first female luxury real estate agent featured on Bravo’s hit show Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles. After about two decades of luxury real estate experience, Tutor maintains her top slot as one of the most successful agents at Douglas Elliman Beverly Hills – however, Tutor doesn’t just work around the clock; she’s also the dedicated mother of teenage girls.
Despite all of her success, Tutor has come under attack from some critics who feel that she may be too successful for a woman who “has it all.” Because she manages to balance family life while still delivering great work in the real estate business, although she went through a divorce from Jason Maltas in 2018, she still manages to keep her on top of her life while dealing with challenges.
Because Tutor continues to face discrimination as a successful woman, Yahoo News contacted her for an interview ahead of the start of her reality show’s thirteenth season. First, they wanted to know about her approach to parenting.
“I wouldn’t describe myself as a helicopter-type parent: When my kids were a lot younger, I was strict about manners and things like that, but as they’ve gotten older, they’re self-starters now,” Tutor said.
Tutor also spoke about how she is working to raise confident, independent girls.
“I’m lucky because I innately operate as a feminist. The girls see me working as a divorced mom. It’s hard to raise young women today and give them the tools they need to become successful adults and not dependent on men. I wasn’t in that space when I had my daughters… and I found that once I had these little girls who looked up to me, my life shifted. I had to live without having to depend on someone for their entire existence and happiness.”
Mom shamers have attacked Tutor for being too hot to be a mom. Here’s what she said:
“I hear that I’m too sexy to be a mom, that I work too hard… I get tons of shame. I had to look at my two daughters and really not let that creep in because I have two fabulous kids — not without their share of struggles. It’s not easy for a family to go through a separation, but their response to me made that noise go away. People are shocked that my daughters are high-functioning — it’s a feat in this town [laughs].”
As for alone time, Tutor doesn’t get much of it.
“Just me, myself, and I? That’s rare if I’m being honest. But I do try to take little moments to take care of myself and do beauty stuff — I’m 46 years old, and I value taking care of my body. Doing an infrared sauna for an hour is my time. I take the time when I can to feel good — but I can’t say it’s frequent.”
