TV Superstar Realtor Joins

While he already enjoys huge international exposure and a growing fan base as a television celebrity, Madison Hildebrand – star of Bravo's hit reality TV series “Million Dollar Listing” – also appreciates the importance of tapping into the worldwide LGBT market for real estate. So just after gracing the cover of the autumn 2009 issue of Pink Magazine and between book signing events for his new publication “Activate YOUR Passion, Create YOUR Career” – which was inspired and written to help others become successful – Hildebrand decided to join, the largest Internet-based network of LGBT Realtors and gay-friendly real estate professionals in the world..

Hildebrand’s engaging professional profile page now appears on the popular site, where he offers real estate services to those interested in buying or selling in and around his fabulous hometown of Malibu, California. Hildebrand has extraordinary insight into that local market, and now through his affiliation with – and its group of 875 websites – he is also conveniently and instantly connected to millions of active LGBT buyers and sellers..

But making strategic connections like the one he just initiated with is one of Hildebrand’s core strengths. In his recent book, for example, he describes the importance of having a dynamic support network while cultivating mutually beneficial business relationships. Hildebrand has an unusually broad understanding of marketing and branding principles, and that depth of knowledge and experience contributes heavily to his real estate success..

While attending Pepperdine University in Malibu, Hildebrand studied Spanish and earned a degree in advertising, mastering a variety of leading edge marketing strategies including those which leverage the incredible power of new media and Internet technology. While preparing for his real estate exam, he worked for ad agencies, event planning companies, and the prestigious Malibu Beach Inn Hotel – where he gained more business experience both as a concierge and the Guest Services Manager. Soon he had a potent mix of appropriate skills and insights to help him become an outstanding Malibu area Realtor..

In 2005 he acquired his real estate license, and his ability to successfully market multi-million dollar luxury home listings is nothing less than extraordinary. Within his first five years, for example, the industry newcomer carved out a lucrative niche for himself and quickly emerged as a top-producing agent based out of Malibu. Now he specializes in prime luxury real estate along the California coastline and his turf stretches into Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Venice, and beyond..

Hildebrand has been recognized in the top two percent of real estate agents in the Coldwell Banker International family and was named Realtor Magazine's 2008 “30 Under 30” – a designation reserved for those 30 top agents who are still under 30 years of age. And despite the housing market recession, Hildebrand has managed to sell over $100 million during his relatively short real estate career. At the same time he has completed his third season as a Bravo TV real estate star, and polls show that he is consistently one of the show’s most popular participants. More than a million viewers tune in to watch each new episode of the show, and many of them are diehard Madison Hildebrand fans..

Of course success breeds success. Thanks to his celebrity status Hildebrand now enjoys not only a global following of fans but also an international network of public relations outlets to help promote the listings of his international real estate clientele..

But Hildebrand’s personal motto is “He who freely gives, freely receives,” and while juggling his busy schedule he finds time to remain active giving back to his community. In addition to his duties and responsibilities as the Director of the Malibu Association of Realtors Board he also serves as Community Outreach Coordinator of Malibu Green Machine – an organization working to “green” Malibu's public spaces – and he passionately supports a variety of other charitable and community causes..

He is also a contributing editor for Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine, and is the author of a bimonthly column titled “Soul Perspective.” Through his column he offers personal insights and tips on how to maintain a positive and healthy outlook while pursuing a balance of personal and professional interests. Hildebrand follows his own advice, and while running one of the most successful real estate businesses in the world he nevertheless still finds time for hobbies like surfing, snowboarding, and playing with Rex, his 10-year-old Labrador-Doberman.,/p>.

Meanwhile prices continue a steady climb in cities across the USA. Home buyer tax credits, combined with historically low interest rates, are spurring the housing market toward sustained recovery. To help ensure that the real estate market stays on track, Congress recently extended the first-time homebuyer credit while creating a new buyer tax incentive for those who already homeowners..

That guarantees that the overall outlook for real estate is promising as members like Hildebrand and their LGBT buying and selling clients look forward to 2010..
