Josh Altman

Josh gushes about Ruth and his mother.

on Feb 10, 20110

OK... first off, I have to say that Ruth is the cutest thing ever! I had so much fun working with her and was sad to see her move. I have never met a 90 year old women who is so with it. She got every joke and even joked back with me. Even though I didn't make any money off of this deal, it was definitely worth helping her make this big move. I know how nervous she was, and I did everything in my power to make it easy for her to have a smooth transition to Boston.

And how about my mom? Isn't she fantastic? I think she has brought me more deals than anyone. You can see where I get my negotiating skills from. When I'm negotiating with her, I always lose. 

Back to the boys... Josh Flagg's offer that he presented to his seller was not a bad deal. Sometimes you have clients that you want to shake and say, "Take the deal!" but it just doesn't happen. The poor homeowner is going to lose a lot of money on this house. I feel for Josh and understand why he walked away. In real estate, your time is the most important thing. With an unrealistic seller you're not only going to waste your time, but also your money and energy. It's just not worth it.

Madison's client seems like a tough businessman who knows what he wants. You need to take charge when it comes to a buyer like this. Madison is too soft for this client. His relaxed attitude won't work with this type. Maybe he's spending to much time on the beach? That client was owning him. I felt embarrassed for him just watching this scene. I see why the two businessmen who were interviewing him thought he looked like a kid who needed to be put in time out. I'm thinking the city is to tough for him.

Thanks again everyone for the support. Follow me on twitter @thejoshaltman.

Josh I think that you are awesome! I love MDL and everyone on the show. You and Heather are too sweet and I hope that Madison does not cause a problem. I think that he is too hard on you and too judgmental. I hope he watches the show and sees that your mom calls all the time, so then he will know that he is in the wrong. You have definitely been a great addition and Mikey is also awesome!

You are nice down to earth and everyone can related to you because you are so down to earth .I will always watch this show because first of all I love it and secondly because you bring a normal environment to the show and I love the way you are so family oriented. Good luck and go sell . Andrea

Are the other 2 really agents or actors? There is Nothing Business savy about them. I don't blame Ismir...I would NEVER trust the other 2 with that amount of money. I was amazed and annoyed the other 2 are considered million dollar agents. Nice people to have a drink with and to be my Will...but...business....no thanks.

Out of the three agents, you are the most with it. Josh Flagg seems like he is in a fog, he should change his name to Josh Fog. As for Madison, his flamboyance makes it difficult for me to take him seriously.

The first episode made you look like Ari Gold from Entourage, however, the second one showed you have a heart of Gold.

As a real estate agent, real estate attorney and real estate developer, I would certainly hire you to work at my company. Congrats on the show and because of you, I will keep watching.

Let's face it. I didn't want to like you. What can I say? You are charming and entertaining week after week. When you've got it, you've got it. Mazel! Don't get me started on your assistant. But, he does some comedic timing.

You're amazing! I watched the last two episodes and felt incredibly motivated just watching you. You're exactly what Men should be-aggressive, motivated, hard working, ambitious and very charming!

I'm a huge fan!!

Hi Josh..

I was very impressed with your actions and the way you conducted 'business' with the lovely "young at heart" Ruth...as well as the 'respect' you had for her..and your Mother..

It was 'refreshing' to see a young man care more about "a persons life/needs" than the almighty $$$$..

I do..however..have ONE question...would you have treated another 'older person' with the same compassion/dignity as you did Ruth...had they not been a family acquaintenance..or..as a request from your Mom?

Hope you answer...thanks in advance..

You Rock!

I thought you were sweet with your 90 year old client! As far as Real Estate Agents go, you seem like a great one but isn't it about connecting with the client too ? Therefore, sometimes no matter how good you are doesn't really matter? No offense, my agent is like Madison and that is the type of agent I prefer. Laid back, not pushy but when it comes time to get what I want I know the agent can produce. I think it is style,personality and competency that are all factors when a client is choosing their real estate agent, don't you? Unfortunately, I could never work with you. You are little too aggressive for me on the other hand my husband would have no problem with that quality, unfortunately for you, I am the CEO of the household and I pick our real estate agent, lawyer,doctor and so on. Anyway, can't wait to see how the season unfolds and I do love your suits!!!
