Real estate business is a glamourous job especially in top city areas like Los Angeles. Thanks to young real estate agents like Josh Altman who, through the Million Dollar Listing, have been able to prove this, we now have a glimpse into the glitzy world of high-end L.A. real estate. When you get to see how these stylish brokers work to sell jaw-dropping properties, you will be left imagining how much wealth these brokers have garnered so far.

Josh Altman is an American real estate agent, investor, reality television personality, and author. He is best known for his appearance on Bravo TV’s hit series, Million Dollar Listing where he has sold over $4 billion worth of real estate. The Wall Street Journal also recognized him as one of the world’s top real estate agents. Having an estimated net worth of $30 million, Josh works in partnership with his brother Matt for their real estate firm, Altman Brothers at the brokerage Hilton & Hyland.

What You Should Know About Josh Altman

Josh Altman was born to Judith and Alan Altman on the 10th of March 1979 in Newton, Massachusetts. Born into a Jewish family, Josh is an American national and is of Israeli-American heritage. He has a sibling named Matt Altman with whom he started a real estate firm called The Altman Brothers.

After graduating from Newton South High School in 1997, Altman went on to earn a Speech Communications degree from Syracuse University. With interest in real estate, Altman moved to Los Angeles and began investing and flipping residential apartments. This he did for the first three years under his self-established finance real estate company before joining forces with his brother to establish Altman Brothers.

Their property flipping business immediately became successful and at the age of 26 in 2005, Josh had already made his first $1 million. However, just as quickly, he lost it all in one bad investment. After a highly successful sale for which they made $200,000 in profit, the brothers began rolling the money into bigger properties they couldn’t afford. The loss left Josh in a wreck as he thought that he’d never be able to restore his millionaire status. However, in the midst of the doubt, the brothers kept pushing on. If anything, Josh learned not to buy the things that he couldn’t afford. His consistency and dynamic nature helped to bring him back to his feet and now, he keeps shattering records across the globe.

Behind His Million Dollar Listing Career

The brothers started their restoration journey by joining brokerage firm Hilton & Hyland in 2006. Soon Josh was back to winning ways, representing high net worth individuals from pro athletes to TV stars, and even international clients. He focused on luxury properties in LA’s high-end neighborhoods including Sunset Strip, Hollywood Hills, Beverly Hills, Holmby Hills, and Bel Air.

In 2010 and 2011, The Altman brothers sold $40 million and $60 million worth of real estate properties respectively. In 2011, Josh made his debut on hit Bravo show – Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles. Though his brother Matt wasn’t cast on the show, he proved to be an important factor in most of the lucrative deals they closed.

The Million Dollar Listing show follows three young real estate agents in Los Angeles as they sell high-end homes. In order not to repeat the mistake of investing himself into penury, Josh revealed that once he gets the paycheck he takes half of it and puts it into a separate account that he rarely touches.
