I Hate Jill Zarin Million Dollar Listing – blog by Quincy IL
Great job with the blog again this week Quincy, I thought the new Josh was a bit more of a likable character this week, seeing him with his mom and giving up his commission for an elderly client, he may just be one of the good guys after all. Here’s Quincy’s recap:
Million Dollar Listing Week Two by Quincy IL
There are no guarantees in the real estate game.
We return to the Encino mansion of last week with Josh Flagg to have a private showing with a woman who is soon to be married to money. She loves the house. There are large “her and her closets.” The house is 10,000 sq ft with a beautiful 4,000 guest house near the pool. She will let her fiancé decide on the offer as the money is his.
Josh Altman meets Judi Altman, his mother and his brother who is also in real estate. Judi is in fashion and his father who is in Aspen is a doctor. The phone rings, but his mom will not let him answer. She talks about nothing while he is waiting to respond to the call, then his mom drops the bomb shell. She wants Josh A to sell a condo in a high rise on Wilshire Boulevard with no commission. The apartment belongs to an older woman who is the mother of Judi’s friend in Boston. This will be a mitzvah, good deed.
Josh argues, but agrees. He knows his mother.
Madison is going into his office in Malibu after his morning workout. His assistant has a message from a foreign businessman who is staying at the Houdini mansion which is in the Hollywood Hills. Josh adds that this is odd as there are so many nice hotels. The mansion has two acres of land. Josh goes there to meet Imir, a businessman. (This is the name listed on the show. I remember this man from Millionaire Matchmaker this past season. I don’t find a hit with this name. I remember him being upset with Patti’s questioning him.) Imir wants a bachelor pad with personality. Madison knows what Imir’s intensions are. They ask Madison to step out so they can discuss him and he is shocked. When he returns Imir hires him reluctantly and threatens his companion with “you better be right on this.”
Joshu A meets with Ruth Holder, a 90 year old family friend who has to move to a senior facility near her family in Boston within 30 days. The apartment has a great view, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and eat in kitchen, but it dated. They will ask for $669.000, but take the best offer.
Josh F. receives a call that he answers and tells them he will call them because he is sitting at the table in his pajamas eating breakfast. He holds the bowl to his mouth so he can drink the milk from his cereal. His hair is a mess during the entire show. He returns the call to discover that he has an offer on the Encino mansion, the offer is low. Susan, the woman about to marry money will not buy the home as her fiancé said, “No.”
Madison takes Imir to the Hollywood hills and shows him a house listed at $2,009,999. The listing agent is Bert. Imir is nasty during the entire visit. The home is 4,765 sq ft, 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, several fireplaces, wall to ceiling windows, a view from the kitchen, a game room and a large master suite with a view. Imir immediately says, “Not for me.” Madsion is going to show Imir a pocket listing which is a home that can be shown, but it is not listed for sale. It is 7 bedrooms, 7 baths, $2,500,000. In the garage, Imir sees a white antique car and is very interested in the car. He also likes the furniture. Madison would like to close a deal and get the claws off his back. Imir gives an offer for the full price, but he demands that all of the furniture and the car be included in the sale. He wants the owners to take their clothes and leave right now. He also demands to be in the meeting with the owner when the deal is presented. This is unusual and uncomfortable for Madison.
In Josh F’s office we see an old dog sitting on a chair. Josh is sick of trying to sell the Encino mansion. There is an offer of $3,000,000 from investors that want Monet to keep his name on the title. If the property should increase in price, the investors and Monet would split the profits. Josh F meets with Monet and his fellow agent in an Israeli Restaurant where they pay for dinner and buy and expensive bottle of wine. The present the deal and Monet, the owner, says, “No.” He looks at the offer and takes the bottle of wine and leaves. Josh F and the other agent decided that they will walk away from this listing.
Josh A has his assistant Mickey who does not have a real estate license stay at Ruth’s apartment. He allows Mickey to state that the apartment is 1711 sq ft and that anyone interested is the call Josh A on the phone. Three female real estate agents come during that period. One is very interested. She has someone in the building and she tries to make a deal with Mikey who has a hard time controlling her. One agent offers $625.000 in cash from someone on a lower level who wants a great deal. Josh A gets the buyer to move to $645.000.000 and he needs to meet with Ruth within 24 hours.
Madison has rented a house on the beach in Malibu for a change after living away from the ocean for 10 years. He is paying $5,000 rent per month for a small house which is outdated with mirrors on the closet doors. The deck is over looking crashing waves. It’s like a boat on water. A friend, Kathy, comes over and holds her arms around Madison from behing and then uses her magic powers to clear the house of evil spirits. There was a crystal on a string and two very noisy sea gulls.
To be continued….
Thanks again Quincy, I love this show!
LynnNChicago: In other Housewives news:
Real Housewives of Orange County’s Oldest…er…longest running Housewife Vicki Gunvalson is spitting nails angry over this web site. It seems the one they call “Wolfy” Is Vicki’s ex-husband Michael Wolfsmith and this is some really dirty laundry.
It is probably one of the most confusing web sites I’ve seen in a long time, it is difficult to know who is saying what and who each person is but the information is certainly fascinating. Another glimpse into Vicki’s sorted past. I am not a fan.
Our friends at TVTime101 didn’t waste any time picking up the story…
