The Art Of Making A Deal

It's Chad vs. Josh! Josh Flagg tells his side of the story.

Is it just me, or did this season of Million Dollar Listing fly by? I really enjoyed the Season Finale and that the episode displayed a huge moment for each of us in our career.

The blow up with Chad was unavoidable and of course something outrageous had to go down before the season was out. The disappointing part of the situation for me is that every time Chad brought up the name Ron Richards, he would never tell me how I knew him. I always asked, "How do I know him?" and Chad would refuse to answer the question, which made me feel like he was making it all up. Why else wouldn't he answer the question of how do I know him? All Chad had to do was tell me that I had met Ron at an open house and we exchanged emails 3 years ago, but instead Chad decided to withhold that information and throw a bunch of old emails in my face at a time when he hoped he could embarrass me the most. Well, it didn't embarrass me.

When you meet as many people as I do as an agent, you can't be expected to remember every person that emails you about a house. Chad showed with his actions that he truly has no integrity - he neglected to behave in a rational way and simply tell me the truth in the situation. After watching this episode, I feel that Chad's actions were in poor taste. After reading his blog and his continued attacks on me, I think it is obvious to everyone that he is just a petty and jealous poor soul. Instead of writing a chapter on me, maybe he should focus on selling a house. In fact, I am happy - in the final episode, Chad finally did sell a house. Congrats! I was not going to write anything about Chad, but I waited to see if he wrote something about me, so I am simply responding to his attacks. Chad, I am sure you are going to read this. Grow up, and stop carrying emails around with you. It is pathetic. If you expected me to remember my email conversations with someone I met all of one time three years ago, then you underestimate the time I have to spend on stupid garbage like this.

On the flip side to that segment of the finale, working with Miguel to find not a house, but a vision, was challenging. This is what most people don't realize and precisely what I love about being a real estate agent - it is not just about finding people a roof to put over their head. It is the ability of finding a place that makes you feel safe and at peace, stimulated and alive. Both the structure of a home and the experience one has while in it is the art of architecture. Like I said in the finale, I don't do it for the money - I absolutely love the art of making a deal. Overall, I was happy with the series and hope the viewers are too.

Bonsoire!

Stunning, Sleek, and Sexy

Josh gushes about his listing and gives his side of the Heather situation.

What a great episode! Everyone made sales. Great way to end the season.

I absolutely love the house on Mulholland Drive. It's one of those homes that is just so cool, I'd want to live in it personally! This home is stunning, sleek, and sexy perched atop the prestigious Mulholland Drive. That listing appointment was very tense. The owner, Rick, has impeccable taste and is a very smart and discerning seller. I loved Mikey's musical number, and I think it added a certain vibe to the open that helped it stand out. You've got to admit, the kid has a good voice.

I think at this point it's evident that Heather is definitely making the right choice to stay with me, despite Madison's insecurities about his inability to control her. Heather is too smart to let Madison hold her back, and he doesn't give her the respect she deserves. Madison clearly cannot seem to draw the line between professionalism in a working relationship with Heather and his personal dislike for me. It's too bad that he is still unsure about his future in real estate and what it holds for him. Heather deserves the best, and that's why she left with me.

As for me? I feel as though I'm in the zone and nothing can stop me. As you would expect, this has been an unbelievable year for me in my business as well as my personal life! I am so very thankful for all the emails and phone calls full of love and support from my fans. With all this exposure I’m very excited about what this next year will bring for me and feel that I am more than ready for what’s to come. Maybe even a book… Keep following me on Twitter @theJoshAltman and on Facebook at Josh Altman or check out our website with all the hottest listings on at www.theAltmanBrothers.com as well as booking speaking engagements and co-listing.
