Josh Altman

Josh doesn't think Madison was right to come to he and Heather's brokers open.

on Jun 20, 20120

I just wanted to hit on some key points in this episode then I'm off to Watch What Happens Live tonight with Andy Cohen.

Josh Flagg finally closes up the lease he has been working on for a couple episodes. He had a very important line that he said when talking about leases. Even though you don't make much money on them they are a very important part of the business because it's all about relationships. I did a lease this year for $6K a month and after it closed the woman introduced me to her fathers friend who wanted to sell their Penthouse for $4.5 million. While selling that penthouse I met a buyer who came to see it that I ended up selling the most expensive condo ever sold in the history of Santa Monica for $10.5 million on Ocean Blvd. So as you see you never know what one little lease will lead you to!

Not sure why Madison felt the need to come to Heather's brokers open after firing her for dating me. I think after that people are finally going to realize what actually happened; how Heather and I did nothing wrong. In classic Madison fashion he takes another vacation and calls Heather a b---h to his parents. What a class act this kid turned out to be. Has he still not sold anything yet this season??? 0 for 3!

Doublevmoms point is succinct. Alot of haters here...successful people all have EGOS!!!  Madison used to be likeable maybe he's flustrated, lots of competition and no sales is tough on the self- esteem. He could act more professional and stop detesting Heather. Let it go Madison she had to leave, you wouldn't mentor.

Madison had every right to be there!!  You really need to work on that  ego of your's!

Not sure why you and Heather are so surprised by Madison's reaction. Really doubt you would keep on an employee & partner in training who would do business with someone who is so disrespectful to you!

I like Josh, I know he has an ego, but in his business you need that...kinda like fredrik on the NY version....it would be funny to see Josh & Fredrik go toe to toe....neither of the other two girly guys on this version can do much...

You are one lucky man Josh. Heather is beautiful and smart... treat her right and you could be partners in more way than one...she likes your style but you need to work hard to keep that balance between her being the most important woman in your life and business. Good luck man!

Yes, Josh has an ego, but that is usually a trademark of real estate agents-especially ones who deal with high-end homes.  That does not make him a bad person.  The real estate market in Southern California is one of the most demanding, and I would think an agent would need to have somewhat of an ego and unshakable self-confidence in order to succeed and/or not get eaten alive. And, for the record, Josh Altman, Josh Flagg, and Madison ALL have big egos!!  I don't get all of the Madison fans.  I find him to be whiny and self-absorbed.  I liked him the 1st season, but I definitely think fame has gotten to his head.  He had a problem with Altman even before he began dating Heather.  At the time, Madison didn't even want the two of them talking.  I'm sorry but he was Heather's boss, NOT her dad, and as a grown woman she can do as she pleases.  Also, Heather expressed, several times, that she wanted more responsibility than being Madison's perma-assistant.  If he was a supportive boss, he would have been happy to be a mentor to her and help her on her journey to becoming a successful agent.  I think the only reason he agreed to let her try it, while still working for him, is that he hoped that would make her stay away from Altman.  Once again, he is NOT her dad!  Why, as someone's boss, he felt he has the right to tell an employee whe she can and can not date is beyond me.  He can try and spin it how ever he wants, but the bottom line is Madison fired Heather because he has beef with Josh.  Way to keep your personal and business lives separate, Madison!  He needs to grow up!!

Josh have you notice that not that many people think your all that.  You seem to be very full of yourself and have to trash Madison every chance you get.  Which make you look like the idiot.  So what if he hasn't sold anything yet this season.  The fact that you have to keep score is just disgusting and again makes you look like an idiot.  Your lookin pretty bad

Madison is a joke. Maybe someday he will be good enough to be Josh's intern. Love the haters and their comments here who wish they could do 1/100th of what you are capable in business Josh . Jealous clowns.

While you are a talented real estate agent, I really liked you better in Season 1.  Team Madison all the way!

Oh please.  You are so conniving that I'm sure you planned it out from the start to ruin Heather and Madison's partnership, because that's just how gross you are.

My gosh, YOU ARE SO FULL OF YOURSELF!  The only nice thing that comes out of your mouth is, talking about yourself!  I truley believe you have created a mini you in Heather, and that's not a good thing.

You are not the end all and be all in real estate. There have been many before you and will be many after you. Heather already had resentement towards Madision that had been brewing, you only added fuel to the fire.  If they were a real estate team she sure wan't acting like it.  It was time to part ways. See how far you get when you don't get her to the "real estate place" she wants to be. Of course with your ego you will just chalk it up to another lady on the notch of your belt.  Not impressed by you at all.

I hope Heather comes to her senses and gets far, far away from you.  Your ego is so HUGE that you have to drive a convertible... your head wouldn't fit in a car with a roof!  You would be surprised how many people have thriving careers while still being humble and living with integrity.

I think you are great Josh! I totally agree that it was inappropriate for Madison to show up and confront Heather. She clearly felt hurt and disrespected by him. I love watching you sell, you are my favorite.

I personally think it is called respect. Treat another broker the way you would want to be treated. You don't steal another brokers business partner even if you are showing Heather the area. There are business boundaries and I bet if someone stepped into your space you would holla holla. I think you are good at what you do but with Heather you are thinking like Patti the Match Maker says "down below" and not "up top with the brains"

Ditch the ego Josh, its not attractive.  I have to agree with Madison on the Heather situation.  She should have said just a minute, let me check with my partner, walked out and called Madison.  If it was your partner and they had done that to you, you would have been Furious!   If thou your ego says he fired her because she was dating you, you are wrong.  She wasn't being a good partner.

 @karen.bolick.9 "Girly guys"? Really? Way to be offensive, Karen. Josh is a jerk. Heather's not much better. Neither are trustworthy. All the insults to Madison and Josh F. that Josh keeps hurling is only calling attention to his shortcomings (one of which I am sure Heather is intimately familiar).

 

PS Josh: Punctuation is your friend. You should learn how to use it. Your lack of attention to it makes you look less educated. And Karen, ellipses are a luxury and should be used sparingly. And correctly.

 @mutter You could tell by the look on his face he was not happy having to share the commission with her!

 @cindyv22 That wasn't the reason Madison was upset....and you should know that just by watching ' and listening ' to what went on.
