Bravo TV’s Million Dollar Agent, Madison Hildebrand

I’m Madison Hildebrand and this is my Coldwell Banker® success story.
Out of college, I worked in the hospitality industry with the future goal of transitioning into a career in advertising. I then saw an opportunity in the high-end real estate market and decided to commit myself to the profession. At 24, living in Malibu, CA it was a bold move to try and sell luxury real estate, but it turned out to be an excellent career move.

Real Estate As A Profession
My journey to selling multi-million dollar homes didn’t just happen overnight; it started with a commitment and a plan. I studied for my real estate license and mentored with one of the top-producing agents in the nation. It was my continuous passion for people and love for the art of negotiation that helped me land my first deal – a $2.8 million dollar home sale to a celebrity. I made more with my first commission check than I did the entire year working in hospitality! When I started my path in real estate, I didn’t know what to expect, but with over $100 million in sales to date, I made the right choice. My success would not have been possible in such a short period of time had I not had the support from my Coldwell Banker office.

My Coldwell Banker Experience
I interviewed with five competitor offices, but knew all along that I wanted to be a part of the Coldwell Banker brand. I needed an intensive training workshop – Coldwell Banker offered the most comprehensive. I needed a company with results, Coldwell Banker had the dominant market share in my region. I needed technology – Coldwell Banker had tools and resources other companies simply could not afford or provide. I needed a strong network and support – Coldwell Banker was like a family. I needed strategic advertising placement at a low cost – Coldwell Banker had those partnerships. Lastly, I needed protection – Coldwell Banker legal is the best. Coldwell Banker has provided me with the opportunities to do great things, which include:

•Closing on a $20+ million dollar home
•Being named to REALTOR® magazine’s 2008 “30 Under 30”
•Becoming a personality on the hit Bravo TV’s “Million Dollar Listing” for four consecutive seasons

•Commits to real estate as a long-term career
