Up in the Hollywood Hills this past week, guys in suits (an unlikely LA occurrence) were sipping drinks and schmoozing in the indoor outdoor space of a 10 million dollar very east coast style home up for sale, one of the listings of the dynamic Los Angeles real estate duo Josh and Matt Altman from Million Dollar Listing on Bravo TV. The show is heading into its 8th season (five of which Josh has been on) where America watches as these young motivated real estate agents sell high end properties in Los Angeles, like Malibu, Beverly Hills, and the Hollywood Hills.
We had a chance to sit down with both brothers from Massachusetts and hear some LaLaScoop. Josh spoke of some of his big clients like Miley Cyrus, Reba McEntire, and Kim Kardashian, who he said was really sweet. He shared some of the most shocking things he saw in some homes were pot growing gardens, plastic surgery/recovery rooms, and car lifts. As you can imagine, everyone wants a view when looking for an LA home as well as a multi-car garage to store their fancy cars. Some of the most popular locations to buy that Josh kept mentioning are Trousdale Estates, the so-called bird streets above the Sunset Strip.
At the premier we watched the first episode of Million Dollar Listing surrounded by many laughs and Josh’s fiancé Heather close by to smile and wince at the real estate drama on the screen. One of the buyers from Manhatten Beach in the show was on the couch as Josh had promised him in the show that he would find him a home in a day near the LA action. The goal for the Altman duo is to sell a million bucks a day, as they sold 300 million dollars last year.
The sweet brothers were off to Aspen in the morning and headed to dinner at Sunset Tower after the premier. Matt Altman was an agent at CAA, which I’m sure helps their client list. Their lives seem always on-the-go as one of their client goals is to be always available.

Next month Josh’s first book will be released called, It’s Your Move, in which he reveals his trade secrets, and offers aspiring entrepreneurs and established professionals tips and insights to help them outsmart the competition.
