So Money - Episode 273

Josh Altman

Bravo's Million Dollar Listing Star

Today’s guest is a regular on Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles and co-founder of The Altman Brothers real estate group, which has partnered with Douglas Elliman.

Josh “The Shark” Altman is a real estate powerhouse and top producing agent with big-name clientele. He has sold over a billion and a half in real estate. Wow, I’ll let that sink in for you. Josh prides himself on the fact that he knows every aspect of real estate. Prior to appearing on Bravo’s hit show he was a successful property developer who flipped for profit properties throughout Los Angeles.

Now, he and his brother Matt have closed some of the biggest sales in LA County history, including the recent sale of a home in Beverly Hills for $20.1M, which will go down as the biggest sale in Beverly Park South history. He just came out with a new book at the end of last month titled, “It’s Your Move: My Million Dollar Method for Taking Risks with Confidence and Succeeding at Work and Life” where he reveals his trade secrets and offers aspiring entrepreneurs and professionals tips to help outsmart the competition.

The takeaways from our time together:

  1. Becoming a millionaire by 26 and losing it all the next year.
  2. What drives him? The money? Power? Prestige?
  3. How he uses Starbucks as his #1 hot spot to find clients.
  4. That time he met Tyler Perry and convinced him he could sell his house…and he did –  in the same day.
