Baller Neighborhoods: Where Do Your Favorite Sports Stars Live?

Hey everyone you may have heard of me being called not just #SDVIPAgent but also #LAVIPAgent . With my primary focus being Sports & Entertainment, I couldn’t have chosen a better city as Los Angeles, the City of Angels. The luxury real estate industry is booming and its truly an exciting time for everyone even professional athletes. These VIP clientele tend to live in certain areas due to the amenities provided including, a beach view, privacy for themselves and their family and more. I have had the distinct pleasure of representing several NBA players and from my playing career created friendships with some of your favorite stars. From this experience I know exactly what these unique individuals desire in their homes and what neighborhoods they love to reside.

So below are the top areas where you might just spot your favorite ballers. Enjoy.



Hermosa beach

Last year, Kings center Jeff Carter paid $5.25 million for a home in Hermosa Beach, near the team’s practice facility in El Segundo. Fellow teammates, including team captain Dustin Brownand goalie Jonathan Quick, followed suit, each buying homes in Manhattan Beach.

Diana Taurasi, the former Connecticut Huskies basketball star who currently plays for the Phoenix Mercury, became a resident of L.A.’s beach cities in June, buying a Manhattan Beach townhouse for $3.3 million. Former Stanford guard Landry Fields, currently with the Toronto Raptors, paid about $2 million for property in the area in July.



This neighborhood is not just reserved for the likes of the Kardashians. Keyshawn Johnson‘s former estate, which the retired NFL star sold to Kourtney Kardashian in February, occupies nearly two acres in the exclusive Estates at the Oaks enclave. Former NBA all-star Mitch Richmond, who lives nearby, is seeking $8.495 million for his 2.23-acre property.
