How to Find Celebrity Real Estate Buyers

luxury real estate Scanning the real estate news this morning, we came across an article about retired NHL right wing Owen Nolan.  He and his wife recently listed their San Jose home for sale at $4.9 million.

This lovely Mediterranean-style home sits on more than three acres, has 9,500 square feet of living space, a home theater, rec room, chef’s kitchen, grand living room, five bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, and many more amenities.

At, we deal daily with luxury homes just like this one, pro athlete homes that are in a price range that makes them very exclusive, but that exclusivity means there is a very small market of potential buyers.  The very fact that the home is a luxury home means that the pool of potential buyers is small. So, how does a real estate broker find a buyer for exclusive properties?

It is a valid question for celebrities and professional athletes.  When pro athlete relocation is a reality, one does not want their property to sit on the market indefinitely.  It is obviously advantageous to move that property as quickly as possible so the relocation can be completed, and that is where a real estate broker who is familiar with the celebrity real estate market is worth his weight in proverbial gold.
