Josh Flagg Shares How His Late Grandmother Edith Is "Still Looking Out" for Him
"Even though Edith's not here anymore, you can't shake her," the Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles agent said.
Before Edith Flagg's 2014 passing, Josh Flagg's beloved grandmother appeared on several episodes of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, often giving the real estate agent plenty of hilarious advice when it came to his life and career. On the show's August 11 episode, Josh still felt Edith's guidance when a seller with a surprising connection to the late fashion mogul reached out to offer Josh the listing on her home.
"I get a call from Lana, who's someone I've never met before, but apparently she met my grandmother 10 or so years ago," Josh explained on the episode. "So even though Edith's not here anymore, you can't shake her. She's still looking out for me all the time."
As he walked into the 4,554-square-foot home, Josh was certainly impressed. "This is a very chic house," he told Lana. "Kind of like you." Her response gave Josh a bit of insight into her interaction Edith years prior. "Well thank you, when I had met your grandmother she said the same thing to me," she said. "We were having dinner at Hillcrest. I had just gotten back from a trip and she stopped me and introduced herself. She was just charming and lovely."
While the moment may have been fleeting for Lana, Josh knew just how significant the interaction was. "The thing about Edith Flagg was she never gave compliments that were not warranted," Josh said. "So if she gave a compliment to Lana, that means that Lana was dressed very well."
As Josh prepared to showcase the home, he seemed to recall advice he got from Edith years before, as seen in a flashback on the episode. "Put something there to eat. Everybody likes to eat and to drink," she said to Josh at the time. "It makes them stay, not run away."
Although Josh told Edith at the time that "bringing food is not going to make somebody buy a house," he seems to now be putting her advice to good use, as seen by the over-the-top cheese board that he "spent $3,000 on" for his open house. "I'm using the cheese to keep people here," he explained. "So that I have time to explain that even though the house is a little older, comps are going around here at over $1,250 a foot, so at $800 a foot, it's the best deal anyone will get in the Bird Streets."
