Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles: Fredrik Eklund and Josh Altman team for $28.5 million co-listing

Fredrik Eklund and Josh Altman teamed up to co-list a Beverly Park house with a listing price of $28.5 million on Thursday’s episode of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles.

The season 13 episode titled ‘Orange You Glad It’s a Co-List?’ opened with Fredrik, 44, at a listing appointment with seller’s representative Yuri in the exclusive neighborhood.

‘I may not know every gated community all over California, but I do know Beverly Park. I mean, I have clients from New York who’ve been looking in Beverly Park. I mean, they want the privacy, the security. These are $20 million, $30 million, $40 million, $50 million, $100 million houses, only for billionaires and big celebrities,’ Fredrik said in a confessional.

‘I mean, if I get this listing, this would be humungous for my career,’ added Fredrik who expanded his business from New York to include the Los Angeles market.

Yuri gave Fredrik a tour of the 13,500 square foot home that included a kitchen with a bright custom orange island that gave the episode its title.

‘It’s a nice kitchen. I like the layout. But it’s a little specific,’ Fredrik said.

‘Everybody loves orange. Everybody likes oranges and everything orange-related, according to my observation,’ Yuri said.

The furniture and finishes came with the house and Yuri said there would be no sale if they weren’t included.

Fredrik suggested a listing price between $26.5 million and $28.5 million and Yuri said he could agree at $28.5 million as a listing price.

Yuri then informed Fredrik who he acknowledged as being ‘number one in New York’ that he had to co-list the property with Josh, 42, who he said was ‘number one in LA’.

‘The perfect fifty-fifty,’ Yuri said.

Yuri said the owner knew Josh from a previous deal and told Fredrik to work it out between them.

Fredrik later called Josh and pitched the co-listing to him.

Josh accepted the co-listing deal and considered it an olive branch from Fredrik after some previous disagreements between them.

‘Beverly Park, in my opinion, I think, is the premier gated community in the entire planet,’ Josh said.

They met up at the Beverly Park house with Josh’s videographer Ben and shot a video that highlighted their different styles.

Fredrik accused Josh of talking differently in his videos.

‘It’s almost like you’re playing a role,’ Fredrik critiqued.

Josh described the property and its amenities as ‘dope’ several times and said the new owner and his ‘crew’ would enjoy it during his enthusiastic walk-through.

Fredrik imitated Josh at the urging of producers and Josh also did his impersonation of Fredrik.

The video contrasted their deliveries as Fredrik focused on the family-friendly features of the house. 

‘Well, who’s ever still awake at this point…,’ Josh quipped while watching Fredrick film.

Josh Flagg, 36, also worked on a Macapa listing with seller Jeanne who was selling her 2,500 square-foot home with a strong 1950s vibe.

The home featured a two-sided fireplace, large pool, mature landscaping and a stunning view of the Hollywood sign.

Jeanne wanted $3.5 million for the property, but refused at the end of the episode to sell it to a developer and insisted that the house not be torn down.
