Madison Hildebrand

Madison discusses working (and not working) with Ismir, and his lack of Dancing with the Stars knowledge.

on Feb 17, 20110

Another dose of Ismir's abruptness.

Can you believe this is for real? Even the other agent, Burt was looking at him like he was being unreasonable. Seriously, forget about the car and fork up a little extra $$$ if you want the house.

Needless to say, we went our separate ways and that was that. "Adios", or wait, "Dovidjenja" is goodbye is Bosnian...and now you have no "panty dropper" house, nor do you have a "panty dropper" car.

My new client on this episode is the best. Dr. Darshan Shah is a stellar seller. He is serious, motivated, and smart. He has a cool house on a great quiet street, but like most sellers, we had to do a little adjusting on reality and price.

As an agent, this is one of the most important parts of a listing: pricing it right. I do not want to create false expectations for the seller and the value of the home, nor do I want to list a home that I can't sell because the price is unrealistic.

I thought it was pretty funny to that I had, and still don't, any idea who Maks is from Dancing with the Stars...but he was a stud. I love my job...haha.

Love love love you Josh - you are handsome, smart and quite entertaining. Ismir was unbelievably rude and crude - maybe a plant? Anywho, keep on keeping on. Oh, btw, Maks from Dancing with the Stars is everyone's fav - maybe you can catch up - who knows who will be next from that show - hahaha! Glad "chaddycakes" is gone but the new guy??? What???

uuuuuhhhhh Madison is the professional and the deal went south because of that idiot client. been there done that. anytime the client gets that aggressive, the deal will end badly whether it goes to to escrow or not.

Madison, that guy was not only creepy but insane. Who acts like that anyway? Wah wah! Ismer needs to go back to his country and wheel & deal there- different customs and attitudes.

Anyway, Madison- You're my all time Favorite!

Madison,

Good riddance to the creepy guy...Who needs that kind of client? He would have probably caused you more problems down the line. Keep up he good work!

I heard the seller of the house you were negotiating with Ismir was no other than Jamie Kennedy and that Kennedy loved the car and would not part w/ it under any circumstance... Ismir is 100% responsible for blowing the deal...

That guy Ishmir? Was such a Jerk, obviously he has to pay for anything he needs to get due to his lack of personality, looks and class. But as he learned, not EVERYTHING has a price. Yuck, and the way he plopped on that master bedroom bed, if I were the owners I would have it fumigated, he is such a slob. When he learned he could not get what he wanted, he acted like a child kicking sand in his sandbox. I'm sure he's always had to pay for any lady who will go out with him. Hope he's got lot's of money or he'll be lonely forever. Goodbye you tacky, classless Slob.

Great show... You're definitely my favorite Madison! Ismir was so unrealistic.. I knew it wasn't going to work from the start.. I couldn't put up with him for a minute... Keep up the good work... Love seeing you every week!

I am a new viewer to MDL and after today I am totally hooked! Great show!! Madison, I think you were MORE than patient with your client, Ismir. What a pushy, rude control freak and walking out on the deal was his loss. I am not in real estate but I have NEVER heard of a client sitting at the table with both realtors, doing a counter offer. What arrogance!!! Indeed, why DID Ismir call upon a real estate professional since he seemed to think he could do it himself - NOT!!! Loved the show and the entire cast!!! BRAVO!!!!

Madison, you are a nice and genuinely personable guy. If I had the money, I'd let you represent me :)

As for Ismir, here's a newsflash for him - doctors have yet to come up with a personality transplant. OH, wait, I'm sorry, I mean implant as transplant implies you're getting something you originally had.

Men like him make me sick, and thankfully, I've men plenty of men with money who don't act like a big, whiny, spoiled, unappreciative baby. I hope he has a separate fund for hookers.

Once Ismir insisted on being there for the contract presentation he was doomed. I burst out laughing when I heard Ismir say "I'm a business man and I negotiate everyday." I believe that is exactly what a professional real estate agent does for their clients. It's a shame that some folks need to pound on their chest to convince the world they have some self worth.

When they were countering the contract; I would of preferred that they would of asked the seller to accept a certain price and see if the seller would be willing to sell the car separate. This would also of given the buyer an option to see if he wanted to proceed further with the car or without the car.

Madison, Your comment to your friend, i believe her name is Susan, who invited you over for dinner party but wanted you to meet a guy,hit me so hard this afternoon as I am feeling the exact same way about getting over a man I was dating which jsut abrubtly ended. You said to her that meeting that guy was almost "sad" and that you "felt like you were about to cry". Isn't it crazy how the sad emotion just hits us and the worst part is, I'm not a sad person and you certainly don't seem like one either so it's just like you also said "you don't know how good it is that you should be meeting anyone else cause you're still sad". omg, I wish we could meet for a drink and talk( I am a straght woman btw) so this is not a come one. I just happened to be homw flipping channels and I guess last weeks show luckily was repeating this Sunday afternoon which I am so glad it was because not that I want you sad or crying but, it made me feel better to hear those emotions are normal and can drag on after a break up of a love. Hope this gets to you somehow....

Ismir has some serious problems. No woman no matter how much money, fancy cars, or anything else would "drop their panties" for this guy. He's a disgusting, arrogant guy. I won't call him a man because real men don't act like this. He thinks he is a bully on a playground. I have news for him, life doesn't work the way he thinks it does here in the U.S. I know people from Bosnia and he gives the country a bad name. Good riddance to him Madison. Who wants to be around such an egotistical, creepy, sweaty jerk! He should invest in some plastic surgery if he wants any girls ever. Just hire some working girls Ismir. Madison be glad to be done with this low-life, you're too classy and kind-hearted to deal with the likes of him.

That was a tough one. It is amazing how people choose an agent. they thought you looked too young!? c'mon it's all about how the agent handles the deal. All the best to you Madison.

Ismir reminded me of an old (very old) skit on SNL with Steve Martin and Dan Akroyd playing "Two wild and crazy guys" - they acted just like Ismir!

Madison, You are absolutely right! Ismir was totally unreasonable. I think a guy like that is a complete jerk and he'll need more than a lamborghini and a sexy bachelor pad to get women. Maybe you should have told him he can find some women to do what he wants for a fee and he can save his millions. You were doing your job, but he obviously wanted/expected you to bully the seller into giving him what he wanted. If he can't get a women without a expensive car, he probably approaches them the way he approached you and the seller's realtor. He needs a attitude change, not an expensive car and and sexy pad to get what he wants.

I like you on the show because you get the job done in a smooth way with little or no drama, back stabbing and arguments. Although I liked Chad and miss him on the show I think your sales were better than Chad's last season. If I am right, that's a feather in your hat and is proof enough that you do a good job and your client's trust and like you.

Loved you and Josh F. in this episode. You guys know how to keep it real. Don't let Josh A. try to intimidate you with his big boy suits. Really miss Chad, he, you and Josh F. are much cuter to watch.

What happened to the other Chad - the guy with the hair in his face?

Madison, you are wrong. Ismir was right, if he wanted to pay full price, why the he!! does he need you?

Seriously? what value did you bring to the table?

If that "Dancing with the Stars" guy could afford a house in the price range he is overpaid. I personally think he is a media whore and wanted the air time. You can bet he sends every ruble back to the homeland. Chorus boys don't make that kind of scratch and it's too bad he wasted Madison's time.

Madison, I almost feel sick watching Ismir? No, not everything is for sale...he still thought if he was a richard, he would get what he wanted, right to the end. The other agent was completely put off, himself and for his seller, I think if Ismir didn't force his way to the meeting, things may have gone differently...but you're right, be gone with his negative ways...I don't think anyone could please him. Take care and be well, I wish great things for you! I worked in a real estate office once, and you handle yourself in a kind, and professional way, you show, you don't HAVE to be a backstabber to win.. :)

Ismir creeped me out. :/ He was totally mean to fire you like that, though. I was like "WTF?"

The house in Malibu that you've listed though is gorgeous. Hope you sell it. :)

Loved this episode, but it would have been much more exciting with Chad Rodgers instead of the new guy. He is really dull..

We loved Chad with his hair obsession and little dog..Where is he? We want him back.
