Publisher's Summary

Land the deals you want and develop your instincts with million-dollar negotiation techniques. 

After selling over $3 billion in real estate, including the most expensive one-bedroom house in history, Josh Altman, costar of the hit show Million-Dollar Listing Los Angeles, wants to teach you the real estate sales and negotiation tactics that have made him one of America's top agents. Buying or selling a house, whether for a client or yourself, is one of the most important (and most stressful) deals anyone can make, demanding emotional intelligence and a solid set of negotiating skills. But by mastering the same techniques that sell multi-million-dollar homes in Bel Air and Beverly Hills, you can attract buyers and close deals on any property. 

Josh breaks down the art of real estate into three simple parts. First, he'll help you get business in the door during the Opening. Then he takes you step-by-step through the Work: everything between the first handshake and the last. And finally, the Close, the last step that ensures all your hard work pays off as you seal the deal.

The narrator will put you to sleep

It's too bad the author didn't narrate this book. His energy would have come across a lot better than the person who ended up narrating the book. The catch phrase "Hollywood" was used quite often the problem is that wasn't believable coming from the reading text.

Disapointing

I’m a fan of Josh but was quite disappointed when I realized he’s not the narrator, mainly because the energy is not brought across as you’d expect it. I learned more from the show, story is dry and an ego booster for the AB unfortunately with not much value as a listener.

Disappointing

Found it painful to listen to this guy and the content just wasn’t there. Josh’ first book was great info and had soul to it because he was reading his own words. Missed the mark on this one man.

Expected more and narrator SUCKS!

Why didn’t Josh Narrate??? First of all I want to say I am a big fan of Josh and Love real estate. I bought the first book “it’s your move” and really enjoyed it. This book however, is more of a repetitive story over and over without really teaching you strategy. It’s more of an ego book and narrator is terrible. He sounds drunk and uncaring. Clearly not a closer himself! He just lost me and will never even get through the end.

Why didn’t Josh Narrate?!

Disappointed in this. The narrator wasn’t great and Josh should have narrated to bring it together a bit. His enthusiasm would have helped a lot. Was hoping to take something out of it and what I got was Altman’s stats and a lot of metaphors about sports, but nothing concrete. I’m an agent, a sports lover, and fan of MDLLA, but this just fell flat. So disappointed!

Entertaining - yes

The book kept my attention. That being said, I was hoping it would be a bit more educational. Much of the book was Altman's ego put into words.
