Kurt Warner was not even drafted for the NFL after graduating from the University of Northern Iowa in 1994. He tried out with the Green Bay Packers but was cut. He then went to work as a grocery store clerk in Cedar Falls, Iowa at $5.50 per hour before giving the Arena Football League a try. With great success as an indoor quarterback, he parlayed his talents into a stint in NFL Europe and then to the St. Louis Rams. Warner ranks #1 in NFL playoff games in completion pass percentage, made four Pro Bowls and also won two MVP awards. He won a Super Bowl in 2000 after leading ‘The Greatest Show on Turf’ to the title. That St. Louis Rams offense was one of the best in the history of football and Warner had no problem leading them down the field. Selling his $5 million dollar estate may be a different story however.
Located in Paradise Valley, Arizona, Kurt's home is near Phoenix where real estate values have plummeted since 2007. Although the area's home sales and values have recently started an upward trend, the multi-million dollar homes are still a difficult sale. Kurt bought his 11,329 square foot, 7 bedroom home in 2005 for $3.3 million from another big sports star – Major League Baseball Hall-of-Famer Roberto Alomar. It is extremely modern with lots of angles, soaring lines, metal and glass. In 2011, the home was featured on HGTV's Celebrity Homes: Holiday Decorating with the Stars. Some of the cool things in Kurt's home include two master suites overlooking the pool diving area, a 62-lap pool and spa, and backyard mountain views.
