This season of Million Dollar Listing LA seems to be missing something. Um, besides Malibu hottie Madison Hildebrand, I mean. Josh Flagg will forever be my favorite. And I honestly do not mind the newbies, James Harris and David Parnes, because I absolutely love that they annoy Josh Altmanso much. Still, I can’t pinpoint why, but this season’s vibe feels off to me.
Is it just me? One person for sure disagrees with me – Josh. And not the one I want to be my best friend forever.
About this week’s show, Josh Altman blogged, “I must say that was by far one of the most entertaining episodes yet. Between the agent drama, the client drama, and the wedding drama, it had me sitting on the edge of my desk chair. This has to be the most exciting season yet… minus Flagg, as there is nothing exciting about anything he does.”
On last night‘s show, James and David brought a client to Josh Altman‘s open house. Josh went out of his way to take little digs at his co-stars, and David did not hesitate to return the favor. Later, Josh pulled James aside and warned him, “You are the likable one. I think that guy’s [David] holding you down. You’d probably be better off by yourself.”
On last night’s episode of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, viewers had the pleasure of hearing James Harris try to ‘rap’ not once, but twice! The man has serious street cred. Not really. But what he does have is an amazing property above the Sunset Strip in Hollywood that he and his partner, David Parnes, are hoping will appeal to young entertainers in the industry. So the boys grab their iPad and run over to a recording studio where they are introduced to none other than the ‘Rack City’ rapper, Tyga. He lives an hour outside of L.A. and needs a crib closer to the studio where he can crash and party. The Brits show Tyga photos of the house and schedule a showing for the next day.
Josh Flagg is off to meet with his client, Jas, an architect/developer, who he met through his grandmother, Edith. Jas had done business with him via her building. He has a 1929 Spanish style home in the City of Beverly Hills that he wants to unload. It is in the lower priced area of Beverly Hills, which is perfect for someone who wants to buy into the lifestyle. But there is a catch. It is a tear-down that cannot be torn down due to the city’s preservation ordinance, meant for architectural treasures. Although this 2426 sq. ft. home has a few interesting details, this home is nowhere near such a treasure and is worth less than land. The interior can be gutted, but the existing exterior must remain intact. The frustration in that must have gotten to Jas the architect. He will no longer be renovating and moving in with his family. Josh advises him to list the property for $2m. A fair asking price.
Million Dollar ListingLos Angeles got some new blood this season in the form of our favorite new Brits and Bond Street Partners, James Harris and David Parnes. Despite being well-versed in luxury real estate, the new guys on the block had to learn a hard lesson this week when they ventured to Venice.
While the new guys were hitting the beach, the real estate agent we all love to hate, Josh Altman, was learning that planning a wedding takes a little more time, energy and preparation than he thought.
On this week’s episode of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, the Altman brothers have picked up where they left off last week – in disagreement over the unfinished Hollywood Hills house. Matt is upset that Josh is still showing the property when he already has a buyer ready to make an offer. Josh reluctantly agrees to give his brother’s creepy client, Sam, twenty-four uninterrupted hours to close the deal.
Josh Flagg and Colton meet with business partner, Sabrina, to discuss their personal investment property, Marcheeta. This property is named after its location on one of the ‘bird’ streets in Beverly Hills. A highly desirable area where all the streets are named after different birds. Josh tells them that he has a premonition to sell. Since there is a lot of new construction going on in the area, they should get out while they are ahead. Sabrina and Colton are a little emotional having put in two years of sweat equity, but agree to sell once they hear that they will double their initial investment. Cha-ching!
While I realize this big event happened on Monday, I’ve needed a few days to recoup, catch my breath, and stop crying over lost love lust. That’s right. My one and only has found another that he liked so much, he, well you know. It’s with a heavy heart that I announce that myRyan Serhant of Million Dollar Listing New York has popped the question to his beautiful girlfriend Emilia Beckrakis. Need I remind you who first broke the story of Ryan’s budding romance from last season?
The reality star is known for being equal parts frat-boy, d-bag (aren’t they sometimes one and the same?), and real estate machine, often times making his co-stars cry in the process. Thankfully for them, Emilia brings out the softer side of Ryan. Now, let’s take bets as to whether we’ll be treated to a Bravo wedding with this pair, shall we?
