Madison's Mazel to Both Joshes

Madison reflects on the amazing year he's had and congratulates his fellow agents on their relationship changes.

Wow. And so it is. . .11 homes, one vacation, a new dog, and 12 episodes later -- I can't believe another season has come to an end. (I can't believe I have been filming my life and career for 6 years now!) There's so much to say and so much that can't be put into words, so here it goes. . .

I will start off by thanking all of my clients, but especially Ethan and Lousine for giving my team the opportunity to show them the best spots in Malibu and understand what "The Malibu Life" is truly all about. We found them a beautiful home overlooking one of Malibu's best beaches and we are now selling their former abode in the Hollywood Hills for $1,834,000 (click here to see it).

Also, congratulations are in order for Josh F. and Colton on the purchase of their new home and overcoming the challenges relationships often bring. Congratulations to Josh A. and Heather on their engagement as it was great, and funny to watch Altman be so nervous and fumble his words. As Andy Cohen would say, "Mazel!"

Lastly, thank you to the new and the ever-faithful fans for following along and watching some of the greatest parts, and some of the most vulnerable parts of my life and sharing in what was yes another best year in my real estate career.

It has been extremely uplifting and humbling to hear from all of you (whether it is about my ups or downs) through email, Twitter, Instagram (@MadisonMalibu), Facebook, and in person. I hope to keep hearing from you even though the season has come to an end!

Keep spreading the love and keep living your dreams. Continue to follow my career at

Cheers! Mazel! Wooohooo!

James: This Was the Ultimate Opportunity

James Harris talks the Laguna Beach listing and why he's excited for the future.

Wow! What an incredible journey from start to finish. This season has been nothing else but amazing. David and I have learned a tremendous amount about our business, our competitors, and the goals we have ahead of us. I can personally say that I have never been happier. I am beyond blessed to have my incredible family by my side, our business is booming, and there is so much on the horizon. There is no better way to wake up than knowing that you are excited about what your day has to offer. I remain positive each day, and no matter what obstacles we come up against, we remain positive and overcome them. 

Listing a home of such magnitude in Laguna Beach was the ultimate opportunity for David and me. As you saw in the episode, it’s no easy task entering a new market, especially one as community-oriented as Laguna. You really have to know someone to be brought in, and our international connections and track record make us desirable to work with. However, working with a client who doesn’t necessarily need to sell comes with challenges. There would be very little room to negotiate with the asking price, and therefore I felt a world class marketing strategy was essential in reaching the perfect buyer. I suppose I was also wary of the fact that the local brokers in Laguna seemed hesitant to work with us! 

We definitely took a sigh of relief when we saw Madison walk up to the door. While this home wasn’t the right fit for his clients, we look forward to crossover business with Madison, as #BondStPartners expands into more beach cities. Closing the deal on this Laguna Beach property not only proved our worth but also secured my confidence in our future. While David and I have our moments of disagreement, we have the same values and vision. We were on the same page completely about foregoing $100,000 of our commission to make the sale happen. With David as my partner and my beautiful family by my side, I’m excited for what the future holds.
