We all know Michael Jordan (or at least know of him). According to reports, the legendary basketball star has his house up for sale. Jordan, who has a net worth of a billion dollars is selling his house for $15 million. And who is going to help him sell his mansion? Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Mauricio Umansky, of course. Umansky is over the top excited about this. Speaking with TMZ, the reality TV star said, “Oh my god, I’m so honored. I mean, it’s just such a privilege to be hired by the great Michael Jordan, and let him give The Agency’s sports entertainment division a chance to sell his house.”
Reports say Jordan has been trying to sell the house since 2010 but he couldn’t sell it for the price he wanted, which was a whopping $29 million. However, he agreed to settle for $15 million and hired Umansky to help him sell it.
Umansky has set a strategy. With the asking price at $15 million, he said he already has some “fish on the line”. He said, “We got a couple of fish on the line, it’s getting close. That one person might have it,” Umansky continued, “It could happen this summer, you never know, we’ll see!”
Talking about the property, Umansky also said, “The basketball court is pretty cool. It’s got the floor, it’s got his number, it’s big. It’s the Jordan mark. It’s the bomb, and then there’s a great room that opens up to the pool and to the outdoors, and that room is just one of the best entertainment rooms I’ve ever seen anywhere.”
We wish him all the best. And to the lucky rich fellow who bags the house, congratulations.
Umansky is currently the Chief Executive Officer of The Agency, a luxury Real Estate brokerage firm. With celebrity listings like Jordan’s, he is an asset to the firm. He has sold various high end houses and sometimes even islands. Houses he has sold are in the price range of millions of dollars.
Umansky himself owns a luxury home in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles where he lives with his wife, Kyle Richards and their children. Richards and Umansky met in 1994. They got married in January 20, 1996 and had their first child, Alexia the same year. They have two more daughters together, 15 year old Sophia and 7 year old Portia. According to her bio on Wikipedia, Richards has another daughter Farrah, from her marriage to Guraish Aldjufrie. Richards was only 18 years of age when she had Farrah.
The family is currently on vacation in Europe. Richards often posts pictures of her family while on vacation on her accounts on Instagram and Twitter.
