Recommendation

On Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, you can see real estate expert Josh Altman jingling the change in the pocket of his custom-tailored suit while closing a deal on a Beverly Hills home worth millions. Now, Altman shares the secrets of his ability to ring up more than $2 billion in real estate sales and consistently rank in the top 25 Realtors in the country. His “Ready, Fire, Aim” method relies on “calculated confidence,” tenacity, polished instincts and the willingness to take shrewd risks. His celebrity-studded war stories from the high-end real estate trenches will keep fans of his show very interested, especially since Altman demonstrates the same warmth on the page that keeps him in a starring role on TV. While his sales methods take a personal touch and a deft hand, and so might not work for everyone, getAbstract recommends his fun inside-Hollywood perspective and his entertaining advice.

Summary

“My Name’s Josh Altman. I’m a Real Estate Agent”

One Sunday morning, Los Angeles real estate agent Josh Altman noticed that the man exercising next to him at his club was actor, director and producer Tyler Perry. He politely introduced himself. “Hey, Tyler, my name’s Josh Altman. I’m a real estate agent.” After a lukewarm response, Altman followed up by asking, “You ever think of selling one of your houses?” He explained he had several interested buyers, and the two exchanged phone numbers. After he left the club, Altman contacted a client he thought would be a good fit. The client was interested, but was leaving town in a few days. Altman called Perry, set up an appointment for that afternoon and had an offer later that day. After a few rounds of negotiations, Altman closed the $11.25 million deal; his client bought the house of his dreams and Perry made an advantageous sale. Not bad for one day’s work.

Not every Altman deal is this easy, especially in the competitive Los Angeles real estate market. Acting with “calculated confidence” and acquiring skills in your chosen field takes time and dedication. Altman’s “Ready, Fire, Aim” method can prepare you to take advantage...
