Back in 1991, Michael Jordan broke ground on his dream estate in Highland Park, IL, just outside of Chicago. Affectionately referred to as Legend Point, the 56,000-square-foot megamansion features nine bedrooms, five fireplaces, a putting green, a tennis court, and a regulation basketball court, of course. So while Jordan is famous for a lot of things — athletic excellence, his footwear empire, and, who could forget, Space Jam — understated, he is not.
Two decades later, Jordan is selling the estate, and he's faced many challenges trying to sell it. The property was originally listed as $29 million, then $21 million, and then auctioned a year later to no avail. As a result, Jordan has brought on Beverly Hills real estate agent Kofi Nartey.
Nartey's selling strategy appears to be in the form of two very over-the-top videos with intense voice-overs and sweeping views of Legend Point. Using the slogan "Start Your Legend," Nartey himself appears in the videos. In one, he says, "Only one person will own a piece of history. Only one person will be able to say 'I just bought Michael Jordan's house.'" If you're interested in being that one person, the house is now listed at $14.855 million — and as if the sales pitch wasn't sufficiently gimmicky, those numbers add up to 23.
