KM: So what exactly is The RealReal?

BK: The RealReal is a luxury designer consignment site and a white glove concierge service where consignors receive 60-70% back from the selling price. We offer authenticated, pre-owned, designer brands such as Hermès, Gucci, Christian Louboutin, Cartier, Bottega Veneta, and many more. The best part?

The rest was history. I absolutely knew this was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I knew this was my dream job so I went for it!
