These days, a celebrity is just as likely to make headlines for buying a new home as they are for starting a new affair. We like to think this is due, at least in part, to the popularity of shows like Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles. So who better to dish on the latest in celeb real estate news than MDLLA star Josh Altman?
The agent to the stars recently sat down with People magazine and talked about Kim Kardashian, Beyonce and Jay-Z, and the best pool he’s ever seen.
Josh called the 23,000 square foot, $85 million dollar home Jay-Z and Beyonce are reportedly considering “one of the coolest houses I’ve ever seen in my life.” Josh, who is familiar with the home, says "I’ve shown it a few times myself," he said, citing the "phenomenal" view and the "best pool I’ve ever seen." "If I had the dough," said Josh, "I'd buy the house."
And which celeb did Josh say is lighting fast with communication during a real estate deal? "Kim [Kardashian] is easily the hardest working person I’ve ever met in my life," said Josh. "When I email Kim Kardashian, she will get back to me in 37 seconds." Josh revealed last month that he’s already sold the reality superstar three homes.
Josh said at that time that "you got to be on your game" when dealing with celebrities because, "they're very good at what they do, and they expect you to be very good at what you do." Still, he insists he treats all of his clients the same. "I don't care if they're a mega-celebrity, I don't care if they're a mega-businessman."
