What do Matt Damon, Suzanne Somers, Don Imus and Dr. James Naismith have in common? Coldwell Banker Real Estate.
We are used to our brand representing some celebrities and trophy homes, so no surprise last week when word came that Coldwell Banker agents were involved in representing so many star-studded homes, including the historic Canadian property basketball inventor Dr. Naismith grew up in.
Matt Damon’s home received quite a bit of fanfare when the Wall Street Journal broke the story of “The Jills” – Jill Eber and Jill Hertzberg – of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate in Miami Beach being selected to sell his $20 million home. The Jills set a Coldwell Banker record last year by racking up a 125 transactions resulting in a new record of over $474,769,883 in sales. Clearly they are not slowing down!
Their Coldwell Banker Previews International colleague Joyce Rey, who works at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Beverly Hills, also routinely represents trophy homes. So it’s no surprise that the former Three’s Company star Suzanne Somers has listed her $15.5 million Palm Springs estate with Joyce.
The third listing we learned about last week piqued my interest as a huge basketball fan. Dr. James Naismith’s childhood home in Almonte, Ontario, Canada (yes he was Canadian) is available for $1.195 million. Partners Cindy Whitehead and Sara Stackhouse, of Coldwell Banker First Ottawa Realty, have the listing. The home on Highway 29 and Naismith Way is of obvious historical value along with its 45 acres of rolling farm land.
And now we come to a celebrity sale last week. Darlene Letersky and Emily Gordon of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Westport, CT, listed and sold, respectively, the 10,000 square foot, six-bedroom waterfront home of Don Imus’ for $14.4 million.
Just another week at Coldwell Banker!
