"MILLION DOLLAR" D-BAG'S ALLEGED JADE HEIST
Josh FlaggJosh Flagg -- the death profiteer from "Million Dollar Listing" -- could get away with allegedly ... you guessed it ... profiting off another dead person.

The estate of Marcia Israel -- who created Judy's clothing stores -- is suing Flagg for allegedly obtaining a bunch of extremely expensive paintings and Jade sculptures that were supposed to be reserved for the Marcia Israel Foundation.

Flagg allegedly got hold of the goods after they mysteriously disappeared from Israel's L.A. mansion -- when Israel's husband temporarily was staying there in 2004 after her death, according to the docs.

A private investigator claims to have snapped photos of the missing goods through the window of Flagg's home.

Here's the kicker: Flagg's lawyers claim Israel's estate has no case against him now because the statute of limitations has run out.

Flagg is being sued for damages for the alleged "wrongful taking of personal property."



 The objects allegedly included works by Chagall and Picasso. Flagg was immediately released on $100,000 bail. A few weeks later, the Los Angeles County District Attorney declined to prosecute due to insufficient evidence.
In 2009, Flagg started working at Keller Williams Westside, in Los Angeles California where he started "Josh Flagg Estates". On March 9, 2010, Bravo announced the return of "Million Dollar Listing for a fourth season, although there was no mention if the three real estate agents would return for the fourth season. The series, "Million Dollar Listing" is produced by World of Wonder, with Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey serving as executive producers

Million Dollar Agent (Paperback)



Josh Flagg began working in high-end real estate immediately after graduating from Beverly Hills High in 2004. Within the first four years of his career, Josh participated in several record sales, including the highest sale in the history of Brentwood Park and the highest sales on the exclusive Roxbury, Foothill and Monovale Drives, making him one of Los Angeles' hottest agents. Flagg has participated in sales up to $25,000,000. "¬¬¬The best thing I have seen Josh do, was wrap an entire house in a big red bow before delivering the keys to the new owners. He is very creative, and that is why he is so successful. In Josh's mind, there are no limitations."Josh is also one of the stars of BRAVO TVs, Million Dollar Listing, returning for its fourth season February 2011. In his new book, "Million Dollar Agent: Brokering the Dream," Josh writes about having travelled to more than fifty countries, his years growing up in one of the most famous cities in the world (Beverly Hills) and how to develop a successful career in high-end real estate."My funniest experience so far was when I fell into the pool of a client's house in the middle of a showing, clothes, jewelry and all! Well I couldn't let that slow me down, so I put on the owners robe, threw on some slippers and continued the showing. The buyers sent me a pair of swim-trunks when we closed escrow." – Josh Flagg

Having traveled to Vienna to go to fashion school at the young age of 15, she watched Hitler march into Austria and decided at that moment she would not let him decide her fate. Flagg fled Austria to Holland, where she became an active member of the Dutch Underground, an organization that fought Hitler and the Nazi regime. A simple Girl describes all that Flagg ( a single mother) endured.After immigrating to Palestine at the end of the war, Flagg moved to America, where her incredible story becomes that much more amazing. With $5 in her pocket, Flagg managed to become one of the leading fashion designers of her day, and a pillar in the California apparel industry. From a mere $2000, she built a multi-million dollar clothing company and has over the years given vast sums of her wealth to charity. She is an inspiration to everyone
