  • A Realtor’s take on “Million Dollar Listing” Episode 6

    Posted Under: Celebrity Homes in Los Angeles, In My Neighborhood in Los Angeles  |  March 20, 2011 5:43 PM  |  892 views  |  5 comments

    The most expensive homes of the season are shown in this episode, and they are fabulous!


    Josh Flagg’s new listing is a fantastic 10,000 square foot home on 20 acres.  However, there’s only one problem, it’s 45 minutes outside of B.H.  Nevertheless, Josh still throws a fabulous open house, catered with gourmet food.  Maybe it was the editing, but Josh seemed much more interested in the food, than selling the house; but with how good the food looked, who can blame him. Later in the episode, grandma gives Josh another great idea.  She suggests he write a book about his life, and as always, he takes his dear grandmother’s advice.  Does Josh and his grandmother’s relationship seem a little off to anyone else?  To start the book, he does what we all do when we need some alone time, he gets a suite at the local Four Seasons.  I know that’s what I do when I write each of these blogs.  Needless to say, this book is going to be a must read.

     


    On to Altman, who has the dream client; an extremely wealthy foreign buyer that wants something big, really big.  His price range is $10,000,000-$20,000,000, so what’s the catch?  Altman only has about 4 hours to show the buyer’s “concierge” the perfect home.  Altman brings the concierge to see two of the most beautiful homes we’ve seen this season.  The first home is a stunning Mediterranean, which the concierge quickly dismisses.  The second is an ultra-contemporary home that the concierge says he’s interested in, as nonchalantly as possible.  The concierge then calls Altman in the middle of the night, stating the foreign buyer will make an offer of $15,000,000 on the $19,000,000 property.  I can’t wait to see the outcome next week.


    Now for Madison, who has a successful transaction on his West Hollywood listing, after some tough negotiations.  This is par for the course for agents in today’s market.  Selling the home is the easy part, finding a price that both parties agree on, is the real challenge.  However, that’s the least of his concerns, since longtime assistant Heather tells him she no longer wants to work in Malibu as his assistant.   Instead, she wants to continue working under him, as an agent (not an assistant), servicing the West Hollywood area.  This could be great for Madison, allowing him to venture into a new area, without giving up his time and business in Malibu.  If Madison is the nice guy he appears to be, he will understand this is what’s best for her, especially because we learn she already has her real estate license.  I believe he should find a new assistant and continue working with Heather in this new capacity.

    So, a number of questions left open for next week’s episode.  What will happen with Madison and Heather‘s relationship?  Will Altman close the sale with the foreign buyer?  Would Josh Flagg jump of a cliff if his grandmother suggested it?

  • A Realtor’s take on “Million Dollar Listing”

    Posted Under: General Area in Los Angeles, Celebrity Homes in Los Angeles  |  February 7, 2011 8:45 PM  |  1,126 views  |  No comments

    Season 4 of Million Dollar Listing started last Thursday.  It had some fabulous homes and wacky clients, but no drama between the agents…yet.

    Let’s start with the newest cast member “Ari Gold,” I mean Josh Altman.  As a Realtor, I have to wonder does this hard pressure, fast talking sales style really work?   I guess so, since he says he is one of the top real estate agents under 30 in Beverly Hills. That’s certainly a lot of qualifiers, which makes me wonder, how many agents under 30, are working in BH?  I could not believe his ‘who’s gonna sell this house’ dance with his assistant; seriously the cheese is just oozing out of this guy.  At least he isn’t taking a dog out of his purse to close the deal, like former cast member Chad Rogers.

    Let’s jump to my favorite, the original Josh, Josh Flagg.  The housing crisis was probably the best thing for him.  If you remember two years ago, he was going through a ‘quarter-life crisis,’ and seemed bored with real estate.  The housing downturn has made it more challenging for everyone, and got Josh’s creative juices flowing.  Some of the ideas he comes up with are so original, however as a realtor, I have to wonder, isn’t a Shabbat open house steering?  Who cares though; it’s all in good fun and makes for great TV.

    Finally, there’s Madison.   I can’t help feeling a little bad for Madison, since it seems like through the years, every one of his client are crazy in one way or the other. The client Thursday night was no exception, although not because of what he does.  I mean really, who doesn’t love a high-end co-op.  However, these dispensaries are not legally supposed to make tons of money.  The fact that he is driving around in a Ferrari, renting a huge house, and portraying this playboy lifestyle on TV is not such a great idea.  The co-op dispensaries the Feds bust, are usually charged with tax evasion.  Anyway, Madison does a good job of finding a rental home for him, and as always where ever Madison’s clients start looking, they still seem to end up in Malibu.

    In the previews, it appears there will be some explosive interactions between the agents, as well as more amazing houses.  I can’t wait until next week!
