“Josh and Matt have built one of the most impressive global networks of high-end clients in the industry,” said Dottie Herman, President and CEO of Douglas Elliman. “Their collective knowledge, business relationships and influence will be key drivers of our mission to develop California’s premier real estate brokerage brand. We’re thrilled to have them join our team and excited about our future together.”
“Douglas Elliman’s international presence with Knight Frank Residential perfectly aligns with Josh and Matt’s progressive vision of connecting global communities and lifestyles,” said Howard M. Lorber, Chairman of Douglas Elliman. “Both as a team and as individuals, the Altman brothers have a pristine reputation and we are confident that they will continue to raise the bar.”
The Altman Brothers are full service real estate experts who provide unparalleled professionalism and employ innovative techniques that have distinguished them as the go-to agents for elite clientele ranging from celebrities and top-ranking athletes, to international business moguls and high net-worth individuals around the world. Their record-breaking sales include the most expensive one bedroom sold in LA’s history–$21,500,000; the priciest lease in the history of Beverly Hills; the most expensive condo sale in Santa Monica history; and the highest price-per-square-foot home ever sold in the Hollywood Hills.
“Douglas Elliman is synonymous with the finest of what luxury real estate has to offer,” said Josh Altman. “With the finest resources and market data available, we’re thrilled to be able to offer our clients the full power of the Elliman brand.”
“The strength and reach of Elliman’s global network is an incredible asset and important piece to the services we’re able to provide our buyers and sellers,” added Matt Altman. “As the firm expands into virtually all real estate markets, it is a pivotal time for us to grow along with it.”
The Altman Brothers’ decision to join Douglas Elliman marks yet another significant milestone for the firm’s momentous growth; Douglas Elliman recently signed a 11,000 square foot office located at 150 El Camino Drive in Beverly Hills, which is being built by one of Los Angeles’ preeminent architectural firms, Patrick Tighe, known for creating some of LA’s most interesting and diverse buildings.
“Josh and Matt have unrivaled expertise in the niche markets of Beverly Hills, Bel-Air, the famous Sunset Strip and in Hollywood Hills,” said Cory Weiss, Douglas Elliman’s Executive Vice President of Business Development in California. “The Altman brothers’ competitive backgrounds in California’s luxury market will be a tremendous asset to our team and we are excited to welcome them aboard,” added Colin Keenan, the Senior Vice President and Managing Broker of Douglas Elliman California.
Josh and Matt’s abilities range from selling single family properties and new developments to residential leasing, luxury vacation rentals and property management. Their strong work ethic and dedication to their clients has resulted in their rapid rise to success.
Josh and Matt Altman grew up on the East Coast in Massachusetts. Josh attended Syracuse University and Matt went to The University of Colorado at Boulder, where they respectively played collegiate level football. Both currently live in Los Angeles, where they have resided for over a decade. Josh became a successful property developer by renovating for profit properties throughout LA, while simultaneously running his own real estate finance company for two years. Before joining his brother, Matt was a talent agent at Creative Artists Agency (CAA) where he built relationships with A-list actors, writers, directors and producers, who are now their elite real estate clients.
