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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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?
