If you have been under a rock we also have trailer.

Ever since the trailer for the "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie came out last month, Erik Mehr's phone has been ringing a lot.

Mehr is the real estate broker for the "Fifty Shades apartment." Yes, the upscale apartment building in Seattle where fictional billionaire Christian Grey lives -- and does lots of kinky things -- actually exists. It's called Escala.

It's overwhelmingly women ages 19 to 50 that call Mehr's firm, begging to spend a night or two in the famous penthouse or, at least, get their photo somewhere in the building. "Our silly phone calls have spiked again where people want to rent the room," Mehr told CNNMoney. "I don't think they realize that this is a condominium building that residents live in and there is no red room." E.L. James heard about Escala, which was completed in 2009, and wove it into her story, although she did take a number of liberties. For example, there isn't a helicopter landing pad on the roof.

Escala had to increase its security measures since the book came out in 2012 and fans became a little too eager to get close to "the apartment." The most expensive penthouse at Escala doesn't have a red room. A family from Oregon bought it in 2013 for $6.2 million. But the building does have some famous people with ties to the building. Escala has had as many as three Major League Baseball players as residents. San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum owned one of the "sub penthouses," but he sold it earlier this year.

 

While the "Fifty Shades" trilogy and movie have caused some headaches for Escala residents, there have also been perks.
