Is bigger always better in real estate? This week, the brokers of “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles” find out that may not always be the case.
One of the biggest listings of Josh Altman’s career is causing a big headache in h上海贵族宝贝论坛 is personal life. Josh Flagg’s Rolls Royce and Rolex aren’t helping him sell a home in the Valley, while James Harris and David Parnes come to find that sometimes two listings aren’t better than one.
Here’s where we left off.
It looks like around-the-clock phone calls and pesky persistence actually impressed the sellers Eric and Ann, who ultimately acquiesce and award the Altman brothers the listing for Dovetail in Bradbury Estates. There is a condition, however. Josh and Matt must make themselves available 24/7 to do showings and field calls, complaints, questions and all of those fun things. Josh promises this won’t be a problem, which doesn’t sit well with his wife Heather, who’s going to give birth, like yesterday.
“I’m very happy to you and Matt got this listing, but I wanted you to do it on realistic terms,” she tells him. “This is so frustrating that you put this before us.”
Heather doesn’t have the time or patience to explain the importance of their unborn child. She’s off to meet Madison to iron things out before her life changes forever. The pair used to be close, until Heather co-listed a property with Josh and was unceremoniously fired by Madison over the phone. Madison said this was because he was emotional and afraid he was losing her. Six years later, they’re ready to bury the hatchet. Madison apologizes for cutting her out of his life, and Heather apologizes for throwing champagne on him.
“I think in protecting myself, I was hurting you more,” Madison says.
Heather receives a long-awaited apology
While Heather and Madison repair their friendship, Josh turns all of his attention to Dovetail. He knows everything must go right, which is why everything seems to go wrong. Upon arriving to the first open house, Josh and Matt find out that the event hasn’t been posted to the local caravan me上海龙凤论坛 aning brokers in the neighborhood aren’t informed of the Nutella crepes being assembled at Dovetail!
Fortunately, Westside brokers are willing to make the 45-minute trek for crepes to see the listing, so they still manage a decent turnout.
Ye of the Valley
It’s time for Josh Flagg to go where no Beverly Hills broker has gone before: the Valley!
He meets with Karen, the developer behind a 6,000-square-foot Royal Oak estate reminiscent of a London townhouse. The house is a beauty, so Josh accepts the listing, though he’ll have to mingle with the locals in order to sell it for $5.65 million.
Only ye humble folk aren’t too keen on mingling with our Josh.
“The brokers are so f-cking weird, it’s like children of the corn,” Josh says.
It’s only when James Harris offers him some sage advice that things start to snap into place.
“Roll up your sleeves, take off your tie, don’t show up in a Rolls Royce, a Rolex and $300[……]
