Madison reflects on this season and tells us about his new dog.

on Aug 15, 20120

Farewell fans! It has been quite the season -- I feel like a housewife! Haha! You guys have been amazing and thank you for all your support with Rex! Here you can see a picture of my new dog who I recently adopted. Her name is Maya and she is the sweetest two year-old Doberman. Adoption is the way to go!

Tonight's episode was so special to me because it served as a tribute to Rex's life. I'm so lucky and honored to have Rex memorialized in the world of reality TV, but more than anything, for me personally.

You actually seem to get along with Heather still, when you two can put aside work. She did show up to Rex's funeral to show her respect and sympathy.

I know you're very busy, but would it kill you to invite her to lunch some time? Maybe it's impossible to have a non-work conversation, but think how much it would burn Altman if you two became friends and she complained about him in front of the cameras. You know you would love that!!  Plus, what's the worst thing that could happen? You two don't talk - aka, the status quo.

Madison you are the classiest man on this show as well as the nicest! Josh and Heather deserve each other...2 users and losers! Watching this twit throw a drink on you tells me that she has a lot of class but it is strictly LOWER!

Hi Madison

I have 7 adopted rescue dogs and am so happy that you're supporting pet adoption.  There are so many hundreds of thousands of dogs and cats that need homes.  I was very sad to learn that your died passed away, He was so beautiful and well behaved.

Dear Madison,

Maya is beautiful! I have a rescued White german Shepherd named Sugar.I'm glad you found a new friend. I just wanted to tell you that you are my favorite and would be my top pick for selling property. Stay true to yourself--you are a beautiful soul.

Madison, I am a huge fan of you and Million Dollar Listing L.A. I know you are an amazing agent, but if you are interested in acting at all I think you would play a great Christian Gray in the movie based on the book 50 Shades of Gray! Just a thought, as with most women I love this series and you have the perfect look for the character. Anyways, always a fan thanks!

Madison, You are sincerely a gentleman in every way that you carry yourself. Especially, when you had to deal with Josh Altman. He really does carry things too far and his ego does get in his way. Some of the things I've read that he says are just unnecessary. Now, to the real reason I am writing to you. My two grandsons would love to have the grey silk(?) V necked sweater w/the shoulder patch or panels like epilets. I would be so thrilled if you would share where you purchased this shirt and the brand name. Your shirts and sweaters and the colors are so complimentary to you and your lifestyle and so chic. I am so glad you're one of the key people on the show. I always enjoy seeing the clear and definitive way you are, as well as your sense of humor and smile. You always seem to be relaxed genuine. When does the next season start? Thank you for being YOU!

I've really enjoyed this show. You and the 2 Joshs' (sp) are all quite different in your styles and each gives the audience a great deal to smile about.

Bravo hit a home run when they cast this show. 

I hope you  continue to have success in 2012 and good luck with the new dog. Looking forward to next season.

To be honest you are the reason I watch the show. . Thank you for such a wonderful tribute to your buddy They are our family. I could not go into our back yard for months after having our dog Duke put down for health reasons at 19 yrs old. We now have 3 dogs and two cats.

I agree with a fellow fan, your parents raised an awesome young man and I admire you so much!

 I wish you all the best life has to offer...take care!

Madison, I love you and want you to know you are one of my favorites on the show...You are smart, hard-working,compassinate and so very handsome....  I cried my eyes out when your beloved Rex passed on, it reminded me when my precious 12 y/o boxer Primo passed.  The memorial you gave to Rex was beautiful to watch, and we can now know that Rex has gone "over the rainbow bridge" with all the other pets that have passed on. Cograts on adopting Maya, I know she will have a wonderful life with you and share your love and happiness.

Madison, you are my favorite on the show.  You are such a sweetheart and I must say you have Hollywood good looks - very handsome!  You are kind, gentle, but very independent and stong at the same time.  A very sensible man in business too.  I love watching you on the show.  Congrats on adopting Maya!

I only now had a chance to catch up on all the episodes and was so moved and touched with your Celebration of Life for Rex.  Losing anyone is the worst and I could feel your pain and wished I could have given you a hug.  Animals are greater being then we humans and I feel they understand everything in such a selfless way that even when they leave us they do so with dignity,  All Dogs do go to Heaven".  I was happy to hear you have a new family member.  It's hard to know when you are ready to get a new dog after a loss, but they have a way of finding us, that is the one thing you can always depend on.   We think we choose them, but they really choose us.  So here's to the new chapter in your life and I hope it brings you Health, happiness and Love.

Madison I am so happy to see that you have adopted beautiful Maya. Dobermans are really smart and loyal friends. I am a Great Dane person myself and I now have Mr Winston who is our fourth. I cried like a baby watching Rex's memorial. I know just how you were feeling. We never quit loving our dogs when they pass but it is so nice to see that you have opened up your heart to Maya. Many happy years ahead for you two. Can not wait to see next season. Maybe more of your mother. She is a special mom and you have many of her qualities.

In March of this year, I lost my Daisy who would have be 14 years old this week. Like countless other viewers I couldn't hold back the tears during Rex's memorial episode. Our canine family members mean so much to each of us and we will miss them forever. Like you with your beautiful Maya, I will soon be adopting a new canine companion who needs a loving home. Wishing you many happy years with Maya!

I cried like a baby first when Rex passed away ( reminded me so much when my dog, Sarah, passed in my arms), I cried during your celebration on the beach in honor of Rex's life and now again because your Maya is exactly like my Sarah ( she was a black and rust female dobie with uncut ears)! You made an excellent selection, they are the most loving breed!

I really admire your patience with some of your sellers who are completely clueless as t othe value of their property.

I am looking forward to next season.

Madison,

 

It is obvious from watching the show you take after your mom. She seems like a nice person with a good heart. It is refreshing to watch a down to earth person like you on reality TV. I wish you continued success in all areas of your life. (Maya is lucky to have you as her new dad).

You are so wise to invest time in Rex and now Maya......they are the one thing that can always be a comfort at the end of the day. Josh A could learn a thing from them!  Whats up with that dreadful rental Josh A moved into? Best wishes for you and Maya.....she's lucky that you choose her.

Love you Madison!  You are so much more fun than Josh Altman....I am a Realtor in Michigan and he gives Realtors a bad name.  "Anything for a deal"  Really?  You at least have a personal life and show that you can balance both....Josh has nothing but worrying about $$$$

Madison, you are by far my favorite on the show. I am so sorry about Rex. We have lost a few dogs of our own and it's just like loosing a member of the family. My husband keeps saying after this one no more dogs because it's to hard when to go,but I'd still like get another one. My daughter works at a shelter so she might be able to help me out. Good luck with Maya. She looks like a beautiful dog.I'm glad you and Heather found some kind of closure. Keep up the good work Madison.

Madison,

 I love you on the show, you are definitely my favorite! I am so sorry to hear about Rex but I am happy you adopted Maya. She's beautliful! Enjoy her, I adopted my baby 3 years ago when he was 3 months old. He is the love of my life. Adoption is definitely the way to go! Hope to see you and Maya again next season. Good luck to you.

I have to say that you are my all time favorite on the show. I think Heather's a sneak, and you made the right move in firing her. Love the new assistant. Stay strong you look great this season. Somethings very "namaste" about you this season, you look stronger and even more gorgeous then before. Kudos to you for forgiving Heather and I love your relationship with your parents.

Thanks for a great season Madison. I can't wait for the next one.  I love your personality, your compassion to your clients and your integrity.  You have a compassion towards life, community service and social issues and that is what makes you stand out the most. Josh Flagg is also a great one and you both seem to get along well.  As for Altman, he can have Heather and they both can float away.  They did nothing for me in making the show interesting,  Just showed how immature and self centered they are.  I am very happy Heather showed up to Rex's funeral and probably against Altman's advise.  I hope one day you can rekindle your friendship with Heather and hope she does not take the same arrogant path as Josh Altman. I will for sure have to keep my remote close by so I can fast forward if I see the "Josh Altman" flash up on my TV screen for next season.  Keep smiling, live your life with grace, respect and enjoy every day while doing it. Success is not  only about money but your personal and professional accomplishments as well.  You are well on your way to fame and fortune and we are proud of you!!!

Dude, there is something definitely missing in your life. . When humans think of dogs of something more than just a dog. Then something is not right within your life.Rex was simply a dog. Dogs have no souls. You need to move ON!

Madison,

I'm so sorry about Rex,my dog is 15 yrs old and she is everything to my husband and I. I can't even tell you how sorry I am. That's what I will do is when it happens with my Charlie I will get another dog. I think it's so good to adopt a dog from a animal rescue. I think your such a good hearted person. I wish you and your new dog the best I know you'll love her.

Condolences for Rex. So glad you have adopted a new dog. Obviously Rex added lots of joy to your life and so will Maya.  I hope you and Heather will mend fences. I think you genuinely care about one another.  In her anxiousness to land a listing, she miss stepped by not speaking with you first, considering your contentious relationship with JA.  All that followed was ridiculous.  As always, you handle yourself with integrity, which will always serve you well.

Madison, you have shown all of us the compassion you have deep down.  I applaud you for your success and never, ever change how you treat people.  I have watched you conduct yourself in some very tough situations and you always prove you have your client's back.

Never let what others say affect your integrity.

 I wish you all the best and will be waiting patiently for the new season.

Your parents have raised an awesome young man.

Madison,  I was so moved when watching your experience with Rex's passing.  I lost my beloved Casey, in June after 12 years,  Casey was a yellow lab,  and a true family member.  I hurt every day when I see her empty "favorite spots".......I have enjoyed watching you on Bravo and I am very impressed with your exceptional values and kind heart.  If I win the lottery, you will be the first person I call for that perfect Malibu real estate investment.

 @Alph Why write something like that to someone who is truly hurting over their lost? Most people have something in their soul that enables them to connect with an animal on a very special level. Obvious you do not. That is fine. You probably are rather cold in your relationships with people also. It takes all kinds to make up the world. Now go spew you nastiness somewhere else.

Alph, How sad your life must be with such a mean spirited opinion.  You are missing a very special part of life. 

 

Madison, Congratulations on adopting your new family member.  I adopted a dog from the Humane Society after my husband died and he is a precious blessing in my life.  You are a fine young man and a wonderful role model for young folks.  keep your kind spirit and I wish you the very best.  If I had enough money and lived in your area, I would most certainly choose you to be  my realtor.  God bless................

 OBVIOUSLY YOU HAVE NEVER HAD A DOG BECAUSE IF YOU DID YOU WOULD UNDERSTAND! DOGS HAVE MORE COMPASSION THAN SOME HUMANS DO! THEY GIVE YOU UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. TELL ME, HOW MANY HUMANS DO THAT? HAVE A LITTLE COMPASSION, PLEASE!!

 @Alph

 Alph, I take it you are not a dog lover. You will find more people think of their pups as family members. They do feel loss and sorrow as deep as if they lost a family member. Those that do not share the close bond with their pup usually have them as work animals or purely for breeding purposes.

 

Dogs can communicate with their owners if you pay attention. They, of course, can give you unconditional love, but they also will express disdain and even be sarcastic. You just have to pay attention and they will communicate with their eyes, actions, and different barks.

 

You will find your opinion is by far in the minority with dog lovers.

 

Madison, enjoy your new pup. He will never replace Rex but he will capture your heart. I love to adopt rescue dogs or pound puppies. They make the best pets ever.

DAMM DUDE .....ALPH ,  THAT IS A CRAPPY THING TO SAY  . YOU DIDN'T NEED TO LEAVE A COMMENT LIKE THAT. THAT WAS SO MEAN. GO AWAY. DOGS HAVE SOULS.   THERE IS SOMETHING NOT RIGHT WITHIN YOUR LIFE. SO YOU MOVE ON........
