Madison Hildebrand -"Million Dollar Listing" (Mon 11 PM ET/PT Bravo)
Madison Hildebrand: Madison Hildebrand is one of Malibu's most sought after celebrity real estate agents. After graduating from Pepperdine University, he began pursuing his real estate license and earned a mentorship with one of the top-producing agents in the nation. He sold his first home for $2.8 million dollars to a celebrity and hasn't looked back since. In spite of four wildly successful years as one of the top producing agents, Malibu's most wanted real estate mogul has not been immune to the failing economy. As property values continue to plummet, Hildebrand has struggled to keep his exclusive clientele happy. But even in the tough market, this Malibu mogul prevails, as he is still able to ink deals for high-end sales and leases in Malibu and Beverly Hills. "Million Dollar Listing" follows the lives of three of Los Angeles' hottest, young and aggressive real estate magnates in the making as they make a fortune selling multi-million dollar properties in the most exclusive neighborhoods – Hollywood, Malibu and Beverly Hills.

Cheryl De Rose The Calabasas Candy Co
Calabasas is loscated near the California coast, and famous for a relaxed, health consious attitude. With that in mind, we at the Calabasas Candy Co. source our chocolate from a local independent chocolatier. The ccompany has selected exotic cocoas from around the world to crate exclusive blends of ultra-amooth pur chocolate, flavorful and rich with all the natural essences and nutritional benefits nature intended. The cocoa beans are then selected from farmers in Peru and Cameroon who are paid directly or "ethically traded". The chocolate is then processed by a small family owned company in Europe who has been in business for over 100 years. By combining the high standards of Euopean chocolate craftsmanship with fresh California ingredients we have elevated chocolate from a "junk food" to a healthy delicacy. Our pure chocolates are specially designed to be lower in sugar, made with pure pressed cocoa butter for healthy skin and retains natural cocoa antioxidents for a healthy lifestyle. Once we received the chololate, that is when the magic begins. Our chocolates are combined with fresh organic ingredients whenever possible. The coffee truffles are made with dark chocolate and fresh brewed coffee rather than artificial flavors. The lemon truffles are mixed with fresh grated lemon zest and juice and our creamy white chocolate. Creeamy milk chocolate truffles are coated in fresh chopped pecans. Our fresh mint truffles are a favorite with our customers. Milk chocolate is dipped in mint green white chocolate and drizzled with more milk chocolate. We have over 15 different flavors and are always adding new and delicious flavors to our line. In addition, we have seasonal flavors such as pumpkin for Thanksgiving and Peppermint for Christmas. The truffles come in a beautiful brown gift box and bow. The truffles are great for any occassion and for anyone!
