Madison’s attorney sent a cease and desist letter to Heather. JA has gone to the condo that Madison is co-listing to discuss the letter. Once again, I will give a lot of credit to Madison for acting civil toward JA when there is someone else present. JA flat out tells Madison that this letter is bullshit. I think Madison is right. It is the next logical step. If Heather is contacting his clients and bad mouthing Madison and saying things that aren’t true, that is slander. Madison is right to contact his attorney about that. Also, Madison indicates that calling his clients is against the contract she signed. If nothing else, we’ve got a breach of contract here. Again, Madison is right to get legal advice on this.
Madison explains to JA that the letter was a reaction to being assaulted with a glass of wine. JA laughs at the idea of calling this assault. He shouldn’t laugh too hard. It actually was assault because it was a threat of violence. Also, it could be considered battery. According to Black’s Law Dictionary, “battery” is: “Any unlawful beating, or other wrongful physical violence or constraint, inflicted on a human being without his consent.” I’m pretty sure you can consider Heather’s actions “violent.” Did Madison get hurt? No. However, Heather was clearly in the wrong and, in most jurisdictions, Madison would be right in taking legal action.
Sorry, that’s the end of my legal rant. Would I have contacted an attorney after someone threw a drink at me? Probably not. However, I can see where Madison is right to do so – especially considering the professional setting of the evening in question.
As expected, Madison stays calm and explains his side to JA. JA acts just like we all knew he would and starts throwing out personal insults. He even says, “Act like a man.” When in doubt, questions someone’s manhood. Totally a solid argument there.
The personification of immaturity.
My favorite part is when JA leaves. He actually says, “You only get one reputation. You don’t want to be known as that guy who doesn’t pay his assistants.” JA should probably worry more about his own reputation. I’m willing to bet that there are more people who would rather deal with Madison than JA. Also, Madison would be known as not paying his assistant a bonus after she was fired. I think that’s someone I would wantto work for. JA will just be known as the guy who brings personal issues to open houses and then throws a temper tantrum.
We’re back at JF’s condo. Yay! I need a break after dealing with JA so much. I have to say, I adore JA’s pajamas.
To cute for words!
JF calls Ina, the potential buyer’s agent. Sandy has agreed to take the offer for $2.9 million offer. He thinks that all cash and the quick closing was the big selling point. I guess I got my wish. Someone made an offer and the seller say, “Yeah, we’ll take it!” I love how low drama JF is all the time!
*Sigh* We’re back with JA. Why has he been in so much of this episode? The price reduction on the house worked because someone is ready to make an offer. Dave is the potential buyer. I really love his studio. He takes vintage aircraft and makes functional art out of it. I’m such an aviation nerd! I want his DC-9 engine coffee table. Getting right down to business, Jason, the buyer’s agent, says that the offer is for $3.1 million. JA knows flat out that it won’t be enough.
Oh, good. JF and Colton again. Colton is taking JF to the gym for a personal training session. JF is already a cutie. If he gets toned up, Colton is going to be a verylucky man.
JA is on the phone with John about the offer. Surprise, surprise! John is a dick about it and thinks the house is worth more (drink!). John is going to get is wastedby the end of the episode. JA gets authorization to sell the house for $3.2 million. However, he tries to get $3.3 million out of the buyer. Dave doesn’t think that they’ve come down enough. Based on a contracting estimating that $75,000 would be needed for Dave to redo the house. JA suggests that they buy the house for $3.25 million and Dave agrees.
So, that’s it for the episode! It looks like there is going to be something quite tragic in Madison’s family. I don’t mean “train wreck and fun to watch tragic.” He mentions losing a family member. On a happier note, we’re going to see Grandma Edith!!!!!
See you next week!
