Another cameo by the great agent, Marisa, visiting Flagg's listing. I think she should replace Josh A next season, don't you? She is not "showing", but rather she "being," and she is natural. She is quick and witty, and tells it like it is. Time to put a real woman on the show.
Then there is Mikey, Altman's assistant. I love Mikey, but honestly, how much does he get paid to "assist"? He is always having more fun than working. God bless him.
To hear Altman say, "This is as sharky as it gets" sounds like he just got hooked by his own game. Even sharks get caught -- even if this shark is Flagg. He ended up making the deal by double ending the clients, and he had his reasons, but "throwing in half of your commission" is crazy. It means he just assumed double the liability and is only getting paid half -- and he doesn't get to even own a piece of the real estate. I tell my clients, "I am making the deal, not buying the real estate myself. It is up to you to take the market price, or to take the risk and possibly lose the their deal."
Madison, I think you are the best. Don't ever change. Always professionals an nice to everybody. its people like you that make this world a lot nice.. to be in.
Madison, I think you should start your own clothing line maybe even with Flagg you guys could call it Hildebrand lol You know you both have great taste!
I just watched it again Altman's a cry baby!! I hope that that all of Altman's clients see what a scum bag he is and leaves his sorry ass!
I LOVE YOU Madison! You are so kind and are so sweet to look at too! Anyway I just want to say thank you for being true to who you are on the show and I hope that they do a spin off to find you the perfect person to spend your life with! Lol that would be great!
You are ALSO incredible to watch think and make deals happen, genius!! It was sad to see you sad about Marco I hope that you feel better I am sure that when you try to love the vulnerability can go either way. I've been there for sure! I don't know about replacing Altman on the show but he is definitely not a nice guy when he is making money off you. He deserved more than a slap about that comment, I'd kick his nuts. I wonder if Edith would too? ha. WAY out of line to bring her up.
Madison, Couldn't agree with you more. Situations reveal people's true character. And it is obvious that Heather is a very manipulative and self-serving person. She seems to not hesitate to betray someone for her own personal gain, and that is sad. I too am in sales. And in sales, your integrity is everything. In many cases, people are buying "you". They trust you, they believe in you and they buy from you because of these reasons. Of course the product is important and there has to be a need and value for the product, but they become emotionally invested in you and trust that you will do the best job for them and protect their interests. I've been watching this show for several years now. Real estate fascinates me. I've really enjoyed watching you "come into your own". You have really become more confident, without arrogance, and you present yourself with dignity, grace and are the consummate professional at all times. Just be you. I have no doubt your success will continue in life because you have a strong foundation and moral compass. Best of luck in all your endeavors - in life, in business and hopefully in love! I want to see you meet that man of your dreams and ride off into the sunset!!!!! YOU have made me a fan of this show so I hope to continue to watch as your life unfolds. I'm cheering for you all the way from Cincinnati!!!! Much love, Kelly
i agree, madison... the deal was a good one without a reduction and i wouldn't have done it, either unless it absolutely had to be done to get the deal done. and then i'd slash it by 1% maybe. the client was such an odd ball... when she found out her property was worth far more than she had guessed there was nothing -- no reaction, good or bad -- no facial expression -- nothing -- just blank. And then she wants to hold out for a Lotto payday. Too funny
Love you Madison and YES Marisa should be on the show full time and they should get rid of Josh A!!!
I guess Bravo likes his BS NY attitude so they keep him on. He is so sneaky and pushy! I would never ever work with an agent like him. I love you!
Josh Flagg is great and so his Grandma! I crack up at the things she says OMG how about when she talked about her boobs!!!
keep up the good work Madison you are a great person and it would be an honor to have a friend like you.
Bleck on the Marisa although the small doses have been more palatable than she was on HW. I do love love Josh Flagg almost as much as I love his Grandma. As to Josh A he might have NY attitude but NY would eat him alive - he would not last 5 minutes. Might be a fun 5 minutes for us though :)
Madison - just love watching you work the deals. Just get over Heather, she's showing her true colors.
Funny too watch old episodes with Heather with brown hair and no make up as Madison's assistant. Now all of the sudden she thinks she is hot stuff with her blonde locks and pricey outfits. All courtesy of Mr. Altman of course. So, it doesn't matter how sleazy Altman is, he's got Heather hooked for life. After all, there is not a long distance between sleaze bag and back stabber. You both deserve each other. You are both the same, except Altman is "in your face" aggressive and Heather is passive, sweet aggressive. In my opinion, one should be more careful of the second one. She can hurt you harder and with a smile...just ask Madison
arikah I do so hope Bravo does not subject its audience with showing another wedding...especially this one. So PLAYED.
Love you Madison but did not like Marisa on the HW would not watch if she became a permanent player on this show. At least three of you make me laugh she is just yuck.
Too bad Brandy Malay doesn't work in LA. She'd be a great addition to this show. I've said this before, but I'll say it again... Bring Mauricio on! With his incredible success, he'd really bring a lot to the show.
lynnwhitlock He's the #3 agent in the country. He is the thorn in Altman's side. Bring him on and watch him bury altman week after week. Mo wld be the cast member, Altman would be the casualty, lol!
I would have slapped Josh Altman, too! Mr. Altman should read the definition of "diplomacy" In Webster's dictionary.
Madison, you without a doubt have been the most upstanding of all the brokers on the show. Why Heather did what she did to get on your bad side can only be a lack of judgement on her behalf. I truly think that the influence of Josh Altman upon Heather has tainted her morals and convinctions.
From what I have seen on the show, you have been the most hard working of anyone including "Mikey". I really wonder which other brokers would have gone and sprayed Kyote Urine to save a sale?? To me that shows integrity and loyalty to the client. To be available to do almost anything to find a buyer for their home says much.
Madison, I really think that IF Heather ever leaves or gets away from Altman, that she would make a good partner. I think she has realized what she has done wrong and why. She has been influenced by one of lifes lowest of the low. To me Altman is no better than a cockaroach. He scurries all about when the lights are on and will get rid of anything in his way to get what he wants.
Your parents should be very proud of you and your work ethic. If I were ever in a position to purchase a home in your area or knew of anyone, your name would be the one to call.
I really think it would be a hoot if you and Josh Flagg got your hands on a multi million dollar prime listing and co-listed it together. That would drive the Altman Brothers nuts !!!!!!
As for the person in your life who ran off back into hiding, Madison things happen for a reason. You still made a contact down in Mexico, so all was not lost. However, it just goes to show that he was not the person for you. You are too good of an individual to be treated like that and trust me, there is someone out there for you and when you least expect it---------they will show up ! Just hang in there and enjoy life and continue to make money now so that when that special person comes around, you will not feel guilty taking a long weekend off of work.
As for your new Baby.........I too had a Dobie named Shadow. I named her that because wherever I went, she was right there next to me. MY Shadow is now in Doggie Heaven but I still always think of her.
Much Luck in all your endeavors and look out for snakes and roaches !!!
THIS IS WHAT HE WROTE JOSH AS&^%$. LOL
I'm sure Madison will talk about how wrong it was how I played him and him buyers like a well thought out game of chess, but I did what I had to do to make sure my clients who are my only priority get the best deal and the property they want. There's a reason why buyers all over the world call me every day asking me to represent them and you have seen it first hand on this episode why.
flaviacaval Altman is so full of himself it is revolting. Madison and Flagg are enjoyable to watch.
I just think your so pretty Madison and if you were dancing at Johnnies in Miami I would spend all my wallet on you. I do have to say though- you really should have slapped Josh A last year when he disrespected you the way he did with his woman. You should thank Josh F for doing it for you - he seems like such a nice young man!
Altman is no match for Flagg and he knows it which is why he is so out of control! Flagg very calmly beat him as his own game and did it ethically. He asked the client if he wanted to bring in Altman and he said no. End of story. How does that make you feel Altman? The client dissed you not Flagg! Not only was is horrific for you to bring up Edith, you insulted the client for the way he dressed....Moron!
Giving up part of your commiss to get a deal closed is nothing new....if someone else's client bought the property, this is what he would have been pd, so this way, he gets the deal for both of his clients, and can then get the seller into another property and get pd on another deal and so on...it was to his benefit.
I agrees. Josh Altman is horrible. he treats people like trash. I can't believe his mom would be proud of how he acts after watching this season. josh Flagg has more class than the other josh has nothing with being trust fund baby. he treats everyone poorly including girlfriend. he needs to take a few lessons by Madison and Josh Flagg. he has security issues that's for sure.
reokto Mom is probably excited that he's making money on TV, she likely is to for appearances.
Madison, I normally like you, but you were OUT OF LINE with Heather and Josh Flagg's working relationship. I'm shocked that Heather gave up her job with Mauricio, but that's aside. Get over Heather--she's moving on and doing quite well. She's entitled to make business connections with anyone she feels comfortable with...if you don't like it, too bad. GO HEATHER!!!
Yes!! Would love Marissa to replace Josh A. He is hard to watch sometimes. I know its such a competitive market out there for you guys, but he doesn't have to be so nasty. Madison you seem like the nicest guy, and you get the job done! Ps... You are so handsome!
Marissa was annoying on the real housewives of beverly hills. She was always saying how she wished she could sleep with anyone other than her husband. If you want to talk slimey-Marissa. And Madison is just plain lazy! Can't sell so have to talk the client into renting? Can never seem to get the client the price point they are aiming for. Going to open houses just to argue with his ex-assistant? Grow up. Get professional and focus on your business instead of acting like a high school girl who likes to gossip.
@venture Just awful thing to say about Madison! He is far from lazy. Very common, in today's market. Renting is huge, on both coasts right now. Maybe you should watch House Hunters.
venture I agree Marissa is awful. She treated her husband like dirt on RHOBH. Annoying too. Gross!
I DO NOT agree that Madison is lazy. He seems like a very professional, hard worker. Helping clients choose to go with rentals when the house isn't selling is totally common. You have to come up with the best solution for your client in the market you are in. Sometimes renting for a while is the best option, rather than the house sitting empty until a buyer finally comes along.
No, please do not bring on Marissa-she was an annoying, immature brat on RHOBH and I could not stand her emasculating her husband on national tv--yikes. Altman makes it fun to watch, we have to have a smart ass on the show to make it interesting.
venture I get the impression that you don't know that much about real estate. Sometimes things don't sell at the (fantasy) price sellers want and renting brings in some money to a property with a large monthly maintenance cost. Pricing is dependent on what nearby properties have sold for. Facts.
Madison strikes me as one of the least lazy people on ANY Bravo show.
Madison...you would look much better if you would stop digging into Josh A and admit your own shortfall with Heather as totally overreaction on your side. Until you do that, you cannot claim to be this good-guy and judge anybody else.
You are no better than others when it comes to make the deal or get a client. Stop acting like a 'nice' guy....
Altman....the guy we all love to hate. Adding Marissa would be awesome, but let's face it, we need Altman. Every show for whatever reason needs a villain and Josh A is it. In MDL NY it's Frederick, and it does make things more interesting.
Marissa would be the perfect replacement for Altman. Altman seems "greasy." I love Marissa on whatever Bravo show she appears! Madison and Flagg seem actually like genuine real people. It grosses me out when I see Heather and Altman together. Yuck! Doesn't she realize that she is marrying someone that is beneath her and that she will outgrow??? I would get rid of Altman and keep Madison and Flagg. Add the girls to the show: I would love for Marissa to take Heather under her wing and help her to find a truly honorable, successful man. Put Marissa and Heather working together and they might "slaughter" all the guy realtors!!!!!!
Carin_in_Jax Marissa is always upbeat and pleasant. A pleasure to watch. Much like Madison. Altman = YUCK!
Kudos to you and Josh Flagg. You both have so much class and integrity. It would be great if Bravo would replace altman - he is a backstabbing slime ball that can't make a deal without some and mirrors. He could learn a lot from you and Josh Flagg. His is just another "wanna be" that like to blow his own horn otherwise he'd never get noticed.
Madison - keep up the class act. And I hope you find a true love soon. Wish I had a broker like you when I bought my house.
Love you Madison! You are professional, kind and truly a good person. This is worth more than money!
Love you and Flagg - so dislike Altman. That was a personal attack, and it was unprofessional. He couldn't argue FACTS, he just sounded as though he was upset that Josh had family who had done well. Whatever he's trying to prove doesn't change the fact that he's an a--.
Totally agree..I have been saying for weeks that Altman should go and be replaced by a Lady realtor...he brings the show to a very low level with his slimy juvenile attitude, the show is about selling/buying real estate, not the Altman Bachelor show
Fantasy69 Agree. Why do they have t have such a jerk? Why would anyone want to work with an unethical realtor? I'd hire Madison or Flagg.
Yes, please - anyone to replace Altman next year. I only watch for you and Josh Flagg. Altman is a tool and totally unethical. I do feel sorry for Heather although I'm glad she is away from you. Just about as shady as he is.
