Douglas Elliman’s nascent Beverly Hills office just snagged itself a star: Top broker Josh Altman, a headliner on Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles,” is joining the firm with brother Matt Altman and six other broker teams.

The Altman brothers have closed more than $1 billion in luxury sales, and hold the record for selling the priciest one-bedroom in Los Angeles, for $21.5 million, according to Elliman. They were most recently at residential brokerage Hilton & Hyland.

“Josh and Matt have built one of the most impressive global networks of high-end clients in the industry,” Douglas Elliman CEO Dottie Herman said in a statement. They “will be key drivers of our mission to develop California’s premier real estate brokerage brand.”

Elliman, New York City’s largest residential brokerage, announced its expansion to Los Angeles in 2013. It recently leased 11,000 square feet at 150 El Camino Drive in Beverly Hills.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer our clients the full power of the Elliman brand,” Josh Altman said in a statement. Added Matt: “As the firm expands into virtually all real estate markets, it is a pivotal time for us to grow along with it.”
