As President of The Malibu Life, Inc., and Founding Partner of Partners Trust Malibu, Madison Hildebrand’s name and brand is synonymous with Malibu real estate. In addition to being included among The Hollywood Reporter’s “Top 25 Los Angeles Agents,” Madison was also recently recognized as one of Variety’s Showbiz Real Estate Elite, distinctions that further reiterate his stellar reputation and leadership abilities. A pillar within the community—both through his media prowess and his public service that extends beyond the cliffs of Malibu—Madison leverages his network to promote his esteemed clients and their listings, his own company, and the various causes that he holds dear.
“Be a blessing, then be blessed”. —Madison
As an original cast member of Bravo TV’s hit reality show “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles,” now filming in its tenth season, and a regular contributing host to E! News, Madison’s achievements and experience continue to garner international praise and attention. An acclaimed public speaker, author of the book Activate Your Passion, Create Your Career, and the name behind multiple real estate lifestyle brands, Madison is as gregarious in person as he is on camera or up on stage. His latest venture, a property development company called Malibu Modern by Madison, brings modern design to West Hollywood bungalows. His infectious “Spread the Love” and “You can mix business with pleasure” philosophies carry into his personal and professional life, including the various philanthropic organizations (Give Back Homes, Boys and Girls Club of Malibu) and partnerships (DocuSign, Inc., Go Smile toothbrush) that he is grateful to be a part of.
After completing his Bachelor of Arts in Advertising from Pepperdine University, Madison decided to plant his roots firmly in Malibu, a community that continues to serve as both his playground and his office. His ability to connect and communicate with a wide range of clientele is guided by his passion for travel and experiences living in various countries, states, and cities. In fact, during post-college life, Madison took a self-imposed break by moving to the Dominican Republic. Those days of sleeping on the beach and spearing his own fish—where he realized that real estate felt like the right path for him to pursue—will always encapsulate a vital life lesson for Madison: self-discovery is time well spent. Nowadays, Madison’s focus remains devoted to building Malibu’s premier real estate team, The Malibu Life, whose experts cover the vast areas of Los Angeles and Ventura County. When he’s not engrossed in L.A.’s real estate market, Madison can be found indulging in the finer things in life or enjoying peaceful moments spent gardening or hiking with his Doberman rescues, Maya and Mr. Prince.
