Josh Altman

Josh Altman tells you what he thinks you need to know about Madison's business.

on Oct 2, 20130

5. For reference, I've had 19 sales ranging from $700k all the way to $8.8 million in the past six months. Total this year alone $140 million sold.

6. Maybe next time Madison Hildebrand wants to try and flex, he should research his data better as he clearly has no idea what he's doing.

7. No matter how many staff Madison Hildebrand hires, he'll never be able to replace Heather. And everyone knows she ran his business for him when he actually did sell something years ago.

8. Madison is however No. 1 in one category, and that's Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. CONGRATULATIONS Madison Hildebrand! You officially have more time on your hands than the rest of us. While you are busy tweeting 25 times a day, I'm busy working for my clients. . .Good job buddy

I have now spent too much time on this. . .I just felt the public was owed the truth.

Oh, and while you're at it Josh -- perhaps someone should tell you to get some class...Something that you SERIOUSLY are lacking!

You are obviously a great realtor and yes what you wrote is correct but not necessary to write about.  Being humble is attractive and classy. All three of you have different personalities and approaches to selling real estate which is what makes the show interesting to watch.  Why not use the blog as a platform to showcase your skills so that when viewers have a property to sell, they may consider you as their listing agent? 

 

p.s why is Mikey so silly on the show? you two seem like a mismatch.......

I'll bet the three of you are all good friends and just playing the roles for good TV. I LOVE IT! Great job fellow realtors!

Everybody attacking this guy here I have to say two quick things.

 

1. Sure the guy can be a bit of ball breaker and is obviously ramping up the drama for the show.

 

2. I notice that the people defending Madison or attacking Josh are not trying to claim that what Josh is saying is not true.  So you can try to defend Madison all you want, but if everything Josh said is true, then your whiny posts about poor Madison are a wasted effort.

Anyone doing business with you should be worried, you are as shady as they come.  You are a greasy little freak of a man.  The only reason Heather is with you is because she loves money as much as you do, you guys make the perfect couple.  You two belong together.  Greed and Narcissism.

You need to go away. I can't stand the sight of you anymore. You are the biggest A!#hole I have ever seen. I realized it's not that you can't stand Josh Flagg you are jealous of him. If not he wouldn't affect you the way he does. Grow up you act like a moron.

Lose the pettiness and stop promoting Heather - she can do it herself and she does a great job without your help - and I mean that as a compliment - leave that disagreement between them alone -- frankly, I think that you are better than this and smarter - Madison has more followers because he has a different approach than you personally and in business - you are sounding like a jealous woman - put the silly swipes away, and get back to business - this post from you is a TURN OFF! Also, please rethink MIKEY - he is not as funny as you think he is - you are so much funnier without trying - your dry humor and stares (responses to other peoples behavior) are so much more entertaining for the watcher!

oh I can't stand you!! but I guess that's why Bravo keeps you around. Heather is a gold digger and that's why she wants you, can't think of any other reason any woman would want you.

A salesman is a salesman! Doesnt matter if he is selling cars or realestate. You may have money, so does Madison and the other Josh. But they have something you dont. Ethics, compassion and a moral compass that keeps them on the straight and narrow which earns them respect. To go through life trying to be a jerk is sad.

You are just another sleezy salesman.

For the life of me I cannot find out what car your driving. Please do tell, that white car is amazing....and suits you. OBTW, I like the way you battle it out for your clients. It's business, so the ONLY feelings that matter are your clients. Rock on Josh! I must say howver, Flagg busted your balls a bit when he flipped you the finger in your own house........OUCH!

I've tuned in a couple of times...no emotional attachment to any characters.  From what I've seen though, Madison has a sincere human warmth and charisma that Josh Altman doesn't have and even seems to shun.  Heather's growing relationship with Josh Altman makes me wonder about her motivations - I mean it's pretty clear what Mr. Altman is about.  Heather's "energy" is obviously not repelled by the pull of Mr. Altman.

HEATHER , for heavens sake drop Altman . Self-centered men are a nightmare and if you marry one he will want you barefoot , pregnant and have you  look at the ground , if another man passes you .

 

There is a better man out there for you .

You continue to show what a creepy, greasy, little punk that you really are. You are SO INSECURE that you actually take the time to slander other agents. What an immature baby. I'm sure Maurico is celebrating because he no longer is associated with you. Poor Heather, hopefully she'll wise up soon, she is such a sweet girl. You might fool your mom and brother, but the rest of us see who you really are, and just want you to go away!!

Altman, you may be "successful" but you will never have charisma, even though, for some ungodly reason, Heather seems to think so. Flagg and Madison are WAY better than you will ever hope to be. Oh, by the way, Madison does so much more for his community than you ever would do. You like being a jerk, be happy, you have made it!

Are you secretly gay,Josh? Like really you are obsessed with Madison. At the end of the day, no one is going to care where you were on a list for team agents. Madison is nice and kind. No one is perfect and if you're holding a grudge because of what he did to Heather,get over it. It's not your problem.

 

You sit here and are like "Josh Flagg is a trust fund baby." Did he ask to be born into a very rich family? NO! You sit here and act like you are slighted. God graced you with a wonderful job to pay your bills with,yet you focus on how you are slighted because things didn't come easy to you. You should be thankful. Have grace for yourself and have grace for others.

Your "over confidence" is perceived as arrogance. Check yourself before you wreck yourself.

I think basing your blog comment on this particular point about Madison is weak.  It was tacky to ask your clients to take a photograph of you flipping off Madison while holding a surf board.  If you were my agent and ended a deal with a photograph flipping off another agent, I would not hire you again.  You are not consistent in your professional conduct with other agents and from what I see on the show, you are also not consistent in fulfilling your fiduciary duty to your clients.

Josh Altman I love you, even though you are a jerk sometimes.  If I was rich and needed a real estate agent, I think I would pick you because it seems like you always bargain hard and try to get the most money for your clients. You are definitely fierce in the ring! As for Madison, I think you guys just need to hug it out, man.

I can't believe you told Heather to stop working with Mauricio....the #3 ranked realtor....just so not to compete with you....AND you won't even have her work with you and your brother.  She is crazy to do that!  

 

Boy is it funny watching Josh get under your skin.  He really knows how to push your buttons!  Sort of like what you do to Madison.

 

Only YOU handle it like a toddler!

Josh A,  Great shirt you are wearing at your house when Josh F. is there.  Where did you get it and who makes it? 

 

BTW, you and Josh F are great realtors and fun to watch.  It's Madison that bugs the "bleep" out of me, so when he is on, I fast forward my dvr.

Thanks.

maybe, just maybe, Andy can have Josh A. and Gretchen Rossi on his show at the same time. They are both

narcissistic, sociopathic opportunists. just a thought...

I have no idea how many Real Estate Agents/Brokers make comments; but I would venture not many because I find it hard to express how I feel about your "PSA" and actually how I feel about you as a member of a profession I love. It is a profession I have found myself defending for 30 years because of the business practices that agents like you and Fedrik  from New York pride yourselves in. I am not confused that you both laugh all the way to the bank. Most of the country has real estate sales prices far below the million dollar mark and this is why I find it hard to comment.. I am sure that you will say...with an arrogance unequaled... that it is my choice to not be in New York or L.A or Miami but the fact is everyone deserves stellar representation when selling or buying a home or business regardless of the market they are in .  I would just like to say that those of us who do not find ourselves in a "Recovering" market are surviving because of long standing relationships based on getting the deal done .... both parties happy.. feeling respected...resulting in sharing our names with friends and family when they need our services. I am sure this will give you a great big chuckle and in a way I have ,then, in the end another happy customer.

Josh you make some very valid points and I don't fault you for making them since Madison did post a snarky blog last week.  That being said I definitely think you need a helping of humble pie and a few more scruples.  I don't like the way you lied to Marisa (Saying 'I'm not going to lie to you' and then proceeding to lie to her) and your snide comment this week about Flagg being a trust fund kid was uncalled for.  He works his butt off as well as you and we have watched this for several seasons- before you ever came on this show.  He's just a little more subdued than you.  I think you are incredibly talented at what you do but try to remember that you don't have to sell your soul to the devil to do it.  P.S. The scene with you and Flagg at your house was hilarious-funniest scene all season.

You are such a Dbag. Self centered, arrogant, tasteless,egomaniac. selfish,evil, insecure,unprofessional, Greasy, Little man. I watch this show for Madison and Flagg. I cant stand it when it features you. I wish Bravo would get rid of you so i could enjoy more of the show. With everything going on in this country, when i want to relax and watch a bit of TV, the last thing i want to watch  is a scum bags like you. Not even an actor playing a part. You really are a disgusting and despicable person and proud of it.

In all things that matter, you don't hold a candle next to Madison. Madison is honest, ethical, empathetic, and most of all, he is kind.

 

At the end of your life no one will care what number you placed on what list, and no one will remember how many houses you sold.

 

People remember kindness, honesty and integrity, along with humility.

C'mon, keep it real.  Ranked 30 as a TEAM, under the umbrella of a different company.   Mauricio on the other hand is ranked 3rd, as an INDIVIDUAL.  Much easier to make the list when you have someone else's sales to combine with your own, isn't it?  Maybe Mauricio should be on this show.  Out of curiosity I wonder where Josh Flagg and Madison would be if they combined their sales as a "team."  Hmmmm.  and let's not forget, you told us yourself that you had the biggest sale of your career this year and how often are deals like that gonna come your way.  If you're gonna use it to bash a colleague, put it in perspective.  Once there it takes on a different light doesn't it?

Hear, hear...bravo..you just said it all..By the end of the show, Altman will be the most hated Realtor from all the Million Dollars Listings

 @seasalt I wrote about repeat business in my comment, if Madison does get many leases rather than sales, thats just good business, all those sellers will come back to him because he found a way to help pay for it yet still will sell in the future.  I also said I know Josh Flagg and Madison have lots of repeat business, stating that I seriously doubt Josh Altman does.

 @LetMESay The end result Marisa was very happy and even said that she would of tear this house down as well if she would be a buyer....That is where the talent is...to make everyone happy by avoiding unnecessary emotions to stop the deal...Like a doctor telling the patient to take a pill that tastes bitter...You have to know how to navigate 'gently'. And in this case Josh did just that, Josh puts his future at risk every time he is trying to push the envelope to make a deal. Not everybody is capable to risk a deal to reach the optimum result. That is where Josh is shining.

 @taniasveta  

Everyone above him is on a team because it is a "Team List."  HE is on the "Team" list with combined sales with his brother.   His blog is misleading and I'm only calling him out on it. He says he's 30 and points out that Madison didn't make it.   Madison is an individual broker and didn't make that -- neither did Josh.  What he's doing is making it appear that he made 30 as an individual while Madison made nothing.  This isn't the case.  So, I'm not "picking and choosing" what I want to see.  Rather, I am seeing what is printed.  He is not the 30th in the country as an individual agent, someone else is.  Go back and look.

 @taniasveta LOL...okay, so by your logic, if Mauricio is 3rd only because his entire company's sales are attached to him, then he should be what on the Team list?... 1st????  It is not working the way you're sayin, but nice try.

taniasveta

 @Rebound Madison has a team of people working for him...DAAA including Heather who was working as real-estate agent in Los Vegas before she started working for Madison. Mauricio has a whole company as a team. No wonder he is on the top 3.
