The Top Professional Athlete Homes of 2012 on

While castles, missile silos and zombie fortresses ruled the realm in 2012, there were plenty of prime real estate happenings coming out of the professional sports world. From Jerry Rice to John Smoltz, here are your favorite athlete homes from the past year.

5. San Francisco 49ers Great Jerry Rice’s Atherton Mansion

Starting things off in our walk down Sportsman Lane was the luxe estate of arguably the greatest football player that ever was, Jerry Rice. Known for his training runs up “The Hill,” the San Francisco 49ers legend has been looking to pitch his mansion in the hills of Atherton, CA for some time now, and took another step towards coaxing a buyer by dropping the asking price for the 13,908-square-foot home to $10.5 million.


4. NASCAR’s Kyle Petty Cashes Out of Isle of Palms

Revving things up in South Carolina this year was former stock car driver Kyle Petty. The son and grandson of racing icons, Richard Petty and Lee Petty, respectively, the NASCAR RaceDay co-host looked to peel out of his Isle of Palms beach home and would later pocket $1.2 million for the 4,100-square-foot oceanfront residence.


3. Spring Training Roundup: Homes of Major League Baseball Players

We love us some Spring Training here at and apparently you do, too. Coming in third on our top sports posts of 2012 was an entire lineup of major league baseball player homes to kick off the start of Grapefruit and Cactus League action. From Matt Cain to Barry Larkin, we circled the wagon on the All-Star properties of ballplayers, past and present.


2. Lamar Odom’s Rents Rich in Dallas

Lamar Odom’s L.A. exit and arrival in Dallas was big news during the 2011 offseason. However, in the real estate world, it was Odom and wife Khloe Kardashian’s rental of a posh condo in Big-D that really stole the show. Owned by the son of Texas Rangers owner Tom Hicks, Khlomar were reportedly shelling out $7,500-a-month for the stylish high-rise pad at the W Dallas Victory Hotel & Residence.


1. Braves Legend John Smoltz Lists Sportsman’s Dream Mansion

With separate tennis and basketball courts, baseball and football fields, a fully stocked and oxygenated fishing pond, a jogging trail AND a 18-hole golf course all found on the premises, it’s easy to see why former Atlanta Braves hurler John Smoltz had the No.1 athlete home of the year. The Cy Young Award-winner and perennial All-Star made headlines in January when he put the 18,265-square-foot mansion on the market for a cool $7.2 million.



Realtor Profile: Glenn Bill

Soon after high school, at the age of 19, I received my real estate license. For the past 23 years (I guess I’m dating myself a bit, oops), I’ve been proud to work in the real estate industry, helping hundreds of families find their dream homes.

Not all realtors suggest the option of building to their clients, but I’m a big believer in the fact that some families are better off getting exactly what they want in a home than settling into a house that needs drastic changes or doesn’t meet all their needs. For this reason, I constantly tout the benefits of building with M/I Homes! Not only does building a home allow you to choose the finishes of a home, but it also is a way to help the environment and save some money! Homeowners will experience substantial savings by building as opposed to buying an existing home. M/I Homes’ Whole Home philosophy is top notch, ensuring homes are energy efficient and made with quality materials. Depending on the age and details of an existing home, new build homeowners can end up saving thousands of dollars each year; it’s remarkable!

Whenever I have a buyer who chooses to builds with M/I Homes, they’re always beyond pleased at the end result. My favorite part of my job is working to grow a list of families that aren’t just M/I homeowners, but raving M/I Homes fans! There are certainly plenty of names on my list alone and I’m sure other realtors who work with M/I would say the same.

My favorite moment with an M/I Homes fan happened a while back, when I walked through a couple’s new home with them. The two literally teared up saying, “We never thought we’d be able to own a home this gorgeous!” It’s that satisfaction and sense of “bang for your buck” that keeps families coming back and deciding to build with M/I.

In my experience, clients are not only impressed by the grandeur, impeccable design and functionality of M/I Homes, they’re also drawn to the company as a whole. The people of M/I are no doubt the company’s largest asset. From the empathy of the salespeople to the responsiveness of the consultants and field coordinators, M/I Homes employees are unparalleled in their leadership and management skills. It’s comforting to families looking to make such a major financial decision to know they have trustworthy people handling their money and building their home.

From my standpoint as a realtor, my job is to always find the home that is best for my clients. I would not keep introducing them to M/I Homes time and time again if I weren’t 100 percent confident in the value and quality of the homes they produce. I’m proud to have a great relationship with M/I Homes and a long list of clients who are very happy I took them to see the models!
