“Did you watch the end of last season when we were going at it with my mouth wired shut?” Madison asks. Well, that’s a conversation starter. And even if I hadn’t, I’m surely Youtubing it before I finish writing this paragraph. Madison Hildebrand is a guy who’s been through it all – as you might have guessed. He’s among the small circle of Bravo’s “OGs,” an original cast member on the original series, Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles. His niche is Malibu, a comfortable spot to get, well, comfortable with, and he leads the way for selling a lifestyle. His brand, “The Malibu Life” encompasses everything that he does, from homes to properties, television appearances to a magazine of his own. We chatted with Madison loud and clear – his jaw long-healed by now – about this past season of the show, and what we can expect from him and his brand in the near future.
