Who Exactly Is Josh Flagg?

Flagg was born Joshua Daniel Flagg on August 20, 1985, in Los Angeles, California. His father’s name is Michael Flagg while his mother’s name is Cindy Flagg (Nee Platt).

His paternal grandmother, a Romanian-born is simply identified as Edith Flagg. She was an illustrious and prominent fashion guru who successfully established a fashion empire worth millions of dollars. In fact, it’s on record that Edith Flagg was the first fashion designer to ship polyester to America.

Josh’s maternal grandfather, Herman Platt, was a renowned philanthropist and a leader in the Jewish congregation. His great-grandfather, Benjamin Platt, founded the nationwide Platt Music Corporation chain of stores.

Born into a very comfortable and wealthy family, Josh attended one of America’s prestigious high schools –  Brentwood School, in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles. He, however, left Brentwood in 2003 and subsequently got enrolled at Beverly Hills High School, from where he graduated in 2004.

Analysis of Josh Flagg’s Net Worth

Commissions from the Properties He Has Sold Is the Biggest Source of His Wealth

Despite being born with a silver spoon, Flagg was determined to create his own success. He took interest in the real estate industry at the age of 18, while still in high school. He began by working at Bel Air’s John Bruce Nelson firm under real estate broker, Bruce Nelson. Now known as one of the most sought-after real estate agents in Los Angeles, Josh built his net worth by making many record-breaking real estate sales in high-end neighborhoods of the city. For each of his sales, he gets between 2-6% of the sale price.

By 2012, Flagg made it to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list which features outstanding entrepreneurs who have achieved outstanding feats in their individual spheres. Some of his feats include; selling the most expensive homes in Beverly Hills, south of Sunset Boulevard, the third-most-expensive home in Trousdale Estates, and the highest-priced home in Brentwood Park. He sold the Brentwood Park home twice, once for $25 million.

Flagg has represented some of the biggest names in Hollywood. He listed Merv Griffin’s Bel Air estate as well as Dorothy Chandler’s Hancock Park estate. He has sold homes to other A-listers like Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, Robert Lamm, and Steve Aoki. In addition to Hollywood celebs, Flagg also represents high net worth individuals from business moguls to attorneys and developers. In 2015, he sold the same 1870 Carla Ridge mansion in Beverly Hills twice, making a profit of $1 million.

He is the Highest-paid Cast Member of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles

As the only remaining original cast member of MDLLA, Flagg is the highest-paid cast on the show with annual earnings of about $2 million. Flagg quickly proved to be an astute negotiator of real estate deals. He rapidly sold residential properties in the chic neighborhoods of Sunset Strip and Beverly Hills.

His exploits made him a worthy cast member for the Bravo TV reality show which follows the lives of real estate agents as they sell luxury properties. The series became hugely successful, spawning spinoffs in San Fransisco, New York, and Miami.

The Real Estate Agent Has Also Made Money from Writing

In addition to real estate, Flagg loves writing. His first book – A Simple Girl: Stories My Grandmother Told Me, which he started writing at the age of 14 was published in 2009. His second book, Million Dollar Agent: Brokering the Dream was published in 2011.

Even though proceeds from his first books go to the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, being an author remains a major stream of income for Josh Flagg. His second book has sold thousands of copies and Josh must have been compensated for his writing contributions to several news outlets and real estate publications.

Josh Has Acquired Several Properties and Spends His Money on Fine Art and Cars

For someone who has built his career around selling luxury properties, it would be difficult to forgive Josh if he hadn’t acquired some for himself. Over the years, he has purchased several properties in Los Angeles and beyond. Josh is of the habit of selling the properties and purchasing new ones, making it difficult to keep up with the homes he owns.

It was in 2018 that Josh and his husband purchased their five-bedroom home in Beverly Hills. Earlier in 2015, it was reported that he bought the estate of Michael Filerman, a Tony award-winning producer. He is also the owner of his late grandmother’s penthouse located in Century City.

The real estate agent has also spent a good sum of his wealth on cars and art collections. He regards his automobiles among his most prized possessions and has about 10 cars. Of all his rides, a 1960 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II convertible is his favorite. He also has a thing for collecting fine art and owns one of the largest collections of Billy Haines’ furniture.

Josh Flagg Is Gay, Meet His Husband Bobby Boyd

  • Name: Bobby Boyd
  • Date of Birth: June 11, 1985
  • Occupation: Real Estate Agent and Former Model
  • Duration of Marriage: 2017 – Present
  • No of Kids with Flagg: Nil

It’s no news that the real estate mogul is gay. Josh’s fans and family members were all taken by surprise in March 2011 when he first announced that he’s gay. Nevertheless, Josh’s parents appear to be very comfortable with his sexual preference as they both stood by him when he got married to his husband Bobby Boyd.

Bobby works in the same industry as his husband Josh Flagg. He is a real estate agent at Rodeo Realty but that isn’t what he has always done for a living. Before he began working as a real estate agent in Los Angeles, he was a model that worked with popular brands like Vogue, Versace, and Calvin Klein.

Boyd is a native of California and has lived in various areas of Los Angeles. This has helped him a great deal in his career as a real estate agent and he has made multiple appearances on the popular reality show, Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles.

Josh and Bobby Started Dating In 2016 and Got Married the Following Year

As you will easily find, the couple got engaged in July 2016 and had a ceremony to mark the event. The extravagant proposal took place at the Four Seasons Hotel George V while the lovebirds were on a trip to Paris. They met earlier that year, developed an interest in each other, and started dating. No one anticipated they will get engaged that soon.

According to what Bobby offered, he had known Josh for a while before they began dating but he didn’t really know the kind of person he is. Nevertheless, he was excited about being his lover for several reasons: they both lived in the same city and are part of the same industry, amongst other things.

Things happened quickly between the two so Josh proposed to his then-boyfriend in Paris at a popup flash mob. Bobby accepted his proposal and would later describe the event as witnessing one of his wildest dreams come true.

The real estate extraordinaire is now enjoying marital bliss with his handsome husband. They got married in an elegant and classy wedding that pulled an overwhelming number of friends, family members, colleagues, and well-wishers. That was in September 2017.
