‘Million Dollar Listing’s’ Madison Hildebrand on sexuality

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: If you’re a fan of Bravo’s ‘Million Dollar Listing,’ which launched its fourth season earlier this month, then you are aware of the handsome guy at the center of things: Madison Hildibrand.

I recently had the chance to chat with the 30-year-old real estate magnate who make a fortune selling multi-million dollar properties in the most exclusive neighborhoods in LA.

With the economy still in a slump, Madison and fellow real estate agents Josh Altman and Josh Flagg must fight for their share of the market and the competition is intense.

“For sure it is the best season, there’s a lot more excitement and a lot better real estate, a lot better clients and transactions and also, I think we’re all very comfortable with who we are,” Madison said. “We tell it like it is and it’s real and it’s organic and it’s pieced together really well. I’m really happy with it.”

I wondered how much life has changed for Madison since he began on the show four years ago.

“Things have changed for me personally over the past four years absolutely,” he said. “I feel like I’ve grown not only in my career, as a person and in my profession, but also in my own body and my sexuality. I feel 30!”

He came out as a gay man early in the show’s run and says he has had no regrets.

“If I make a decision to do something because that’s what my gut asks me to do, there is no down side,” he said. “Maybe it has affected my business in a negative way, I don’t know and I don’t put a lot of energy there. I certainly have seen an increase in business so for that I’m grateful.”

He added thoughtfully: “And more than anything, I think coming out on television was a big decision for me because I know how hard it was for me to come out to my family and my friends. And I just wanted to be an example to show other people that you can be young, you can be successful and you can be gay and you don’t have to worry other judgement. That was a good thing for me.”
