Summary: Madison’s client has 6 six dogs, Josh Altman’s client has $17 million to spend (in cash!!), and Josh Flagg’s client has a temper. My 2-cents from “Going to the Dogs”:
- The show started off with some very sexy negotiating. I mean, we’re negotiating nearly $20 million worth of real estate; how can it not be hot? Anyway, Altman’s client puts in a bid for $15 million on the $18 million house—in cash. No deal. Altman calls his client. His client is willing to spend $17 million; he just doesn’t want to. Fair enough. Altman plays the negotiation game and offers the Realtor $15.8 million. This is a very unsexy offer for her. Her client wants $17 million. Will Altman cave? Uh, does Josh Altman wear suits from Men’s Warehouse? Does he ignore his Mom’s phone calls? No! Altman offers his “best and final offer”: $16.5 million. He keeps his poker face, and the Realtor accepts
- Madison is stuck in another humiliating situation with his client. This time it’s not the client being a bitch; it’s the client’s 6 dogs! Madison, as usual, has a good attitude about it and ends up leasing the house.
- Flaggy has a lot going on. He’s not just eating five-course meals this episode and showing a property or two; no, he’s finishing up writing his biography. But first, his client tells him he’s a fool—in a nice way. Josh thinks taking the property off the market will reenergize its entry into the market a few months later. Yeah, maybe, but that’s not what the client wants. And when you’re dealing with million dollar clients, you must do what they say. So he does, but also puts his concentration elsewhere. Flaggy has composed a very important chapter in his book about a very important person named Colton. We’ll find out more next episode.
- Madison’s assistant Heather and his friend have thrown him a mixer in which he can meet a bunch of cute boys. “I feel like a nut surrounded by a bunch of squirrels,” says our bashful, blue-eyed boy. He does meet someone at the mixer, so #funfunfun! But, grr, here comes that assistant-stealing shark Altman. Yup, he’s here for Heather, and Madison is very suspicious of Altman’s motivations. He thinks he’s manipulative and coaching Heather to leave Madison to sell real estate on her own in West Hollywood. Personally, I think this has been on Heather’s mind for quite some time and has nothing to do with the nice boy/shark. She is perfectly capable of selling real estate on her own, and now is her time. Tension is thick is between Madison and Altman; will they throw down?
What do you think about Heather wanting to sell real estate in West Hollywood? Is she influenced by Altman? Are you excited to learn more about Colton? Catch “Million Dollar Listing” on Bravo, Tuesdays 9/8 CST.
