Flagg was notably in the middle of a hairdressing appointment while addressing the financial mishap, and a hairstylist was seen working on the real estate agent’s hair.

The representative made a point of asking if the call was being made over speakerphone, although the Bravo star reassured her that he was fine with the circumstances.

When asked for a specific dollar amount, the woman on the other end of the line expressed that ‘it’s $104,175.64 right now.’

The author appeared to take the theft in stride and humorously remarked that ‘someone had a good day.’

Flagg also seemed dismayed when he was informed that he would not be notified about the identity of the individual who had stolen his identity.

The real estate agent initially began appearing on the Bravo program during its second season, which premiered in 2008.

The show follows the personal and professional lives and exploits of various realtors in the Los Angeles area.

Other reality television figures who have appeared on the show include Josh Altman, Madison Hildebrand and Frederik Eklund.

Spinoffs of the program have taken place in locations such as New York City, San Francisco and Miami.

Flagg recently spoke to Forbes and expressed that the most recent season of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles would see the featured realtors treating each other much more cordially.

‘There’s [also] a really good dynamic between all the agents whereas, in other years in the past, there hasn’t been [as much]. There is a synergy. Everyone’s getting along with each other. It’s just a whole different thing,’ he said.

He did point out, however, that fans of the show would not be disappointed by the new season’s content.

The reality television personality noted that viewers could expect ‘a lot of fighting. What else can we see? Oh, yeah, me and Josh [Altman] are besties now. I love it.’

Flagg went on to tell the media outlet about why prospective home buyers should work with a trusted realtor. 

‘In my business, one percent of us do 99 percent of the business and there’s a reason why we have good reputations…Very few brokers have knowledge of the market,’ he said.

The real estate agent then expressed that being featured on the hit Bravo program has been helpful in terms of raising his public profile. 

‘I started as a top broker then I got into this two years later with the show and everything. It obviously catapulted my business. The show is a wonderful thing,’ he said.
