Josh Altman places a very important phone call -- asking Heather's mom if she will allow him to propose. Who could resist having this guy as their son-in-law?
Josh meets with a client who has been living in her home since the 70s. Little does she know what's she been hanging on to!
Josh can't help but share that her home could be worth roughly $5.7 million dollars. She might not seem that excited, but some people freak out on the inside.
Madison meets with some potential clients who have developed a spectacular Malibu hideaway.
The only problem: the developers aren't interested in what the neighboring comps have to say about price. They want to list this home for what they feel it is worth. It's on Madison to convince them otherwise.
With sweeping views like this, selling this listing should be no problem -- providing potential buyers can envision the finished home.
Eventually Madison and his clients come to a compromise, the house will go up as a pocket listing until it's completed, giving Madison time to test the price before it hits the multiple listing service.
Josh meets with a house flipper named Ilan to check out his latest handiwork: an old-school New England style house in Los Angeles.
Ilan is ready to make some big money on this deal. All the more to buy lobsters for the brokers open.
Marisa Zanuck drops by Josh's listing to see if she has anyone willing to flip Homa's tired looking bad.
The views in Josh's listing are so stunning Marisa has to wear shades.
Josh Altman knows the way to a client's heart is through his kid's heart. Just kidding, he just made a buddy at the brokers open.
Awkward. Josh Flagg drops in to see Josh's listing, only to realize Ilan had tried to call him to have him represent the house -- only to have his call go unreturned. The two were campers back in the day!
Josh Flagg is none-too-pleased Altman didn't refer Ilan to him. Somehow we imagine this isn't the end of this.
Madison tours his core group of agents through the Piuma listing, hoping to get a sense of what they feel the place is worth.
Josh preps for a showing at Homa's house. Whoever could it be?
Ruh roh, it's Altman's client Ilan. Is Flagg ready to take back what he feels is rightfully his?
Josh does double check that Ilan isn't "exclusive" with Altman before offering to make him a deal. If this works out, Flagg could make double the commission by representing both parties -- and double the revenge.
The pocket listing has yielded mixed results, and Madison goes back to his clients to see if they'd be willing to lower the price and suspend showings until the house is fully finished.
Josh meets with home to get the ball rolling on the potential deal with Ilan. Because he's repping both sides he can't give numbers so he's bound to the numbers that Homa can think up on her own.
Josh shows Ilan's East Coast style home to some very preppy buyers. They should fit right in!
This house s Altman feeling like he's back in Massachusetts. Go Sox?
Josh Flagg takes the opportunity to let his mentees sit in on his client dealings. Hopefully they can learn a little something from the master.
After Josh told Homa her home was worth so much, she's having a hard time settling for what Ilan is willing to offer. Eventually Josh manages to close the deal -- by kicking his commission to her. Sure he'll make half as much, but he'll close the deal. And that's today's Josh Flagg real estate lesson.
This would-be-buyer thinks Madison's property is the perfect place to walk around in the nude. It does seem like a great place to let it all hang out.
With stunning views, maximum privacy, and a panic room this home could be a dream for a very wealthy loner. We kid, this house is great for the gregarious too!
Josh finally breaks the news to Edith -- he's moving out of the condo. Edith's intial reaction isn't exactly what he was hoping for. (She basically said she'd never call him again.)
But his grandmother eventually comes around. He'll still live close-by and if he's happy she really just wants him to shut up about the whole thing.
That's the smile of a man who just sold Ilan's house for full asking price, breaking the price-per-square-footage records in the area. Woo-hoo Josh Altman!
But Josh stopped smiling when he heard Ilan had made a deal with Josh Flagg, and he rushed to confront Flagg for what he believed was sharky behavior. After some tense words (and talk of Edith!), Flagg retaliated with a slap! Who saw that coming?
