I literally thought I had already done this MDLLA recap, but I have not. I blame Covid brain, and he fact that my DVR is trying to die in this fucking pandemic. So, not time like the present I guess. Maybe Fredrick Eklund will be on. It’s one of those days that we all need a fun diversion.
Why is Josh driving his boyfriend’s Range Rover to a listing appointment in Long Beach? How does he not know where the listing is or how to use a navigation system? I really shouldn’t criticize, I Google directions on my laptop and then, ….wait for it… write them down on a piece of paper by hand. Oh and my 2007 Honda is trying to die along with my DVR. I really need the dealership to come pick it up and overcharge me for whatever is wrong. They may or may not have mentioned I needed new front brakes last time I was there. Eventually, he arrives 45 minutes late.
The house is a gorgeous 1920’s house designed by Roman Coate. It has not been on the market for 43 years. There is so much beautiful wood and the floors have old Spanish type tiles in some areas and hardwoods in the other. How is this house only three bedrooms, it seems huge! And it is right on the beach! There is an indoor sauna, a guest room for the gardener. The house is on three acres! He lists it at just under $12 million.
Flagg and his gang have an open house. And a vintage (of course, it’s Flagg) pulling an ad for the house. It really is an amazing place. I like it better that Tracy’s house and this place is much cheaper. It seems to be a lot of lookey-loos there for the views and the tequilas. Ha Flagg just called them looky-loos too. Flagg tries everything and there is no interest in the house. I WANT IT! Flagg does a nighttime open house and real buyers show up. But, they think it is over priced.
One of Tracy’s agents is showing her personal house. It has 7 bedroom and 10 baths. Le sigh. It’s list for just under $24 million. Tracy micromanaging the showing on the way to a listing. Or maybe she is just doing the listing agent a favor because she is familiar with the neighbor hood. It’s a gay man couple who developed the house. You can tell because every detail is perfect. It’s in Pasadena. Oh he is an owner and an agent so he wants Tracy to help with the listing.
Tracy holds an open house for brokers and buyers. She has a great turnout and agents came from near and far. During the open house, Tracy learns that her house is sold. And now she has to find a place to live. An agent makes an offer for a celebrity client. It’s full price but he needs $100,000 for landscaping. He needs his privacy. They end up agreeing on $30K for landscaping.
Josh’s baby boy has been born and his little family of four is precious. Altman is also on his way to a listing appointment. I am sure he will get it. These are all staged. They do actually get the listings, but they have them when they arrive. It has the biggest walk in closet I’ve ever seen. It’s 320 sqft. But it is long and not room shaped. So it’s amazing. He doesn’t get the listing right away because the seller wants an unrealistic listing price. I’m sure the seller will be back.
Josh goes to check a street mural he has commissioned to cover his new office to draw interest to the building. It’s really cool and expensive. He asks the guy to include his dog that passed away on the mural. I look over to make sure Banjo is still kicking. I accidentally feed him food I should not have tonight. Mostly because of the salt intake. But so far so good. And he really likes it, so if he lives it should all work out.
Where were James & David? And more importantly, is Fredrik on this show or not?
