Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Josh Flagg began working in high-end residential real estate immediately after graduating from Beverly Hills High in 2004. Within the first four years of his career, Flagg participated in several record sales, including the highest sale in the history of Brentwood Park and the highest sales on the exclusive Roxbury, Foothill and Monovale Drives, making him one of Los Angeles' hottest agents. Flagg has participated in sales up to $25,000,000. He currently works for Keller Williams Westside. After finishing his first book about his famous grandmother, Edith Flagg (the woman who brought polyester to the United States), Flagg decided to pen his own memoirs and write an inspirational how-to book for making it in the dog-eat-dog world of real estate.

I thoroughly enjoyed this very entertaining book.
Lucille M. Peyok
There were many typos, poor grammar, and some of the material was written and then written again on later pages.
Rachael Robertson
I felt like Josh came across in his book exactly like he does on the show.

I enjoy the show Million Dollar Listing, both for a peak into some homes I can only dream of owning, and the story behind the three Realtors! So decided to buy this (I admit it was the show that convinced me to purchase the book as it left you wondering who the character Colton was, and in my Type-A cannot wait mode, I could not wait a week and bought the book instead!)

Josh Flagg the author, is exactly the same as Josh Flagg the celebrity Realtor - and by this I mean his character is a little quirky, a little absent minded and rather creative, especially when it comes to selling homes; this book is also quirky and sometimes lacks a little direction, but can be creative and is a fun easy read!

Now the minus here was the lack of complete editing. Several times I found the sentences would repeat themselves - we learn his Grandmother hated paying for valet parking, the we learn this again just two sentences later. There is also a chapter about his drinking whilst at high school , and two pages later I find myself reading the same chapter! At first I thought I had pressed a button on my Kindle by mistake, but nope, there it was, a whole paragraph repeated! But to be fair, I am pretty sure he did not self publish so this was an error on the publishing house! The book is also a little jumpy: one minute he is 4 then a teen, then it jumps back again, but that again is very true to the character that Josh is!!

If you are looking for a complete guide to real estate, then this might not be for you - its a rich kid recap of his life, in a funny and entertaining way; and then proceeds to cover Real Estate!

I give this book a 3.5 I wish amazon would issue half stars.

As a biography, its 3 stars. As a real estate informational how to, I give it 4 stars.

I watch Million Dollar Listing and love it. I have taken several real estate courses and loved to keep up with what things are selling for in my area. When I moved to my new city, the realtor was surprised I knew as much about what I was looking for as she did. It's easy now to get information.

While watching the show and those beautiful homes, I got interested in Josh as well as Chad, and purchased the book Josh wrote about his grandmother. I recommend it, he gets a great deal of his smarts and savvy from her.

Most of the people who will buy this book do so because of that show. On it, Josh promotes his faith and does so heavily in the book. That part is interesting to me.

I bought this book primarily to see how he started in real estate, how he made his deals. That's the best part of the book. Unfortunatley, that part doesn't start until page 200 or so. I suppose when you are only in your mid 20s you have to stretch your book out but there was a LOT of info on his early childhood, kindergarden, high school. Some of it was interesting, a view on a world of an affluent family in California. Josh says several times he is spoiled. It depends on your point of view. Like in Clueless, it's his normal world. The other reviews haven't mentioned the personal part, but it's a good deal of the book.

As I have said to my husband while watching the show, Josh must have something going on despite his family connections, otherwise he wouldn't continue to be successful.

Part of it I think he is very comfortable in that top echelon world.

I am an attorney not related to real estate, but I have bought and sold a couple of my personal homes in the past couple years and I can tell you Josh's advice is right on the money. The part about pricing a home realistically or even a tiny bit low is golden advice. People thought I was crazy to price my home below market, but within 7 days I had 2 people fighting over it and I ended up receiving a higher price than if I had listed it at an inflated price right off the bat (even in this lousy market). The idea of listing low was actually scoffed at by my Realtor. She said "everybody will low-ball you no matter the price so why not jack it up". Proof was in the result. She was happy to pick up her large commission check within 40 days! I think this book is very well written, honest and a real breath of fresh air. Josh tells it like it is, and unlike most people, I think Josh is someone who learns from every mistake. Don't worry about having never gone to college Josh...you are perfect the way you are!

I don't rarely do reviews and I hardly every read books. I bought the Kindle version of this book last night and finished reading it this morning. For me to read a book in less than 48 hours is amazing! I think I read it so quick because I am a fan of the show and touches on a bunch of interests of mine, how people got rich, money, young entrepreneurs, and expensive real estate.

I was expecting that considering he is on a TV show and kind of has to watch what he says because of that, this read would be kind of dull and boring and leave a lot to the imagination. What turns out is just the opposite. Josh touches on everything in his life, all the way from a memory when he was 3 years old (who has memories that early?!), goes over his educational career, hits on history of the area, his personal life, his family life, his professional life, and all throughout he has anecdotes that keeps the reading light and easy.

Definitely a great read and gives a number of stories and history that could be used as great conversation starters.
