Josh Flagg says he had his eyes on the mansion since he was a little boy: Complete story here!
Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles star and the real estate agent Josh Flagg has made a big move since announcing his split from his husband Bobby Boyd, a model-turned real estate agent, earlier this month. The lavish mansion is laid on 7,100 sq. ft in Beverly Hills and was initially listed for a whopping $9.2 million. Flagg has scored the crib for $9 million. In a conversation with People, Flagg explains the story behind the exorbitant purchase and reveals how the estate has been his dream for a long time.
"I have had my eye on this home since I was a little boy. It has not been on the market in close to 60 years," the real estate agent shares, adding, "It was actually an opportune time because a year ago, when it was brought to my attention that the owners may consider selling, I was halfway through renovations on another house." Flagg further reveals how his priority shifted when the offer came across him.

"When this came across my desk, I stopped everything and was immediately determined to get this home. It's always been my favorite home in the [Beverly Hills] flats," said the Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles fame. Further inspection on the property records has revealed the estate was previously owned by Barbara Lockhart and her deceased husband, Herman Blackman. Flagg has also responded to the speculations if the purchase was an impulsive step to distract himself from the ongoing crisis in his personal life. He shares his split from Boyd has nothing to do with the recent deal.
Flagg and Boyd announced their split in a joint Instagram statement in early March. "This might sound abrupt, but I felt I should be transparent from the top rather than bury the headline. This was not a rash or impulsive decision. We have been very thoughtful before coming to this conclusion," the estranged couple's statement read. Josh and Boyd tied the knots in a lavish Jewish ceremony in Beverly Hills in September 2017.

The couple assured an amicable bond between them and reiterated their continuing love for each other in the post. "Unfortunately, as we have learned, sometimes love isn't enough. We have found that we want different things for our lives and our paths look very different now. And now, today, we both go on our new journeys. This may be the end of our romantic relationship, but I'll always consider him part of my family," Boyd's statement read.
