This week the brothers from another mother landed a massive opportunity in the form of a $48 million dollar spec home (eat your heart out Joe Gorga!), but unfortunately they couldn’t stop arguing long enough to formulate a solid plan to market the house – even though they partnered with Mauricio Umansky‘s The Agency (if you recall Mauricio once worked with Josh!).
“With or without a piece of Pilates equipment, the property in Holmby Hills is a masterpiece from top to bottom,” writesDavid. “James and I take our clients’ trust seriously, working tirelessly to meet their needs. I believe in visualization, organization, and planning while still thinking outside the box. And for a property of Faring’s magnitude, the marketing strategy must pull out all the stops to match.”
Since Madison Hildebrand has left the show, there is a void, an emptiness that has yet to be filled. Dare I speak its name? Malibu. Those spectacular beach beauties along the Pacific Coast Highway and sprawling gems perched high above them. Malibu. I know it’s only the second episode in, but you are missed. Oh Malibu.
So it’s back to the Hills and San Circle open house we go. And back to some more trash talking by David Parnes and James Harris. The Brits cannot let it go. They are completely frothing at the mouth as they devalue the house inch by inch. Sure the property has its minuses, but the pluses far outweigh them. Can you only imagine if they had gotten the listing and the tables were turned?? Everything would be brilliant, right??!! Josh Altman has really gotten under their skin. Get over it guys. Though, Josh Flagg seemed to enjoy watching the boys little catfight. Meow.
But first, condolences to Josh Flagg for the loss of his grandmother, Edith Flagg. I enjoyed watching their scenes together. They really seemed to like each other’s company and you could feel the love between them. She was a spitfire and will be missed. Now back to the show…
Josh Altman has returned still engaged to Heather Bilyeu. As much as Josh was opposed to the idea last season, she is now working for The Altman Brothers but from the ‘home’ office in order to keep a separation of family (Heather) and business (Matt). He had no choice but to bring her into the fold. Money is money, right? I’m no therapist, but it doesn’t take one to see the writing on the wall.
As always, Josh is Josh’s biggest fan. Gah, he is such a pompous jerk, but I do love to hate him. My heart 100% belongs to Josh Flagg, and while I plan to enjoy every minute of David and James annoying Altman, I will miss Madison Hildebrand on the show.
"British transplants David Parnes and James Harris are making a name for themselves with their crisp suits and smooth selling moves. The duo and their firm Bond Street Partners – part of Mauricio Umansky's company – are forces to be reckoned grossing over $120 million in sales last year. Their sly business sense and international prowess make them a threat," promises Bravo. "Josh Altman's sights are set on growing The Altman Brothers into a worldwide real estate empire, but a mounting rift between fiance Heather and brother Matt may make planning his wedding even harder to manage. Josh Flagg has enjoyed the splendors of being a top agent in Beverly Hills, but with a slew of agents on the rise, he is forced to protect his precious piece of the pie."
