Weekly Top Ten Real Estate Hot List Tue: 09-25-2012
One more proof that “. .real estate is never boring” is that a realtor was likely the first of the viewing public to know that Michael Strahan had been chosen as Kelly Ripa’s co-host. How did such a thing happen? Because when he listed his Hermosa Beach, California digs, the media found out and the gossip columns came alive with the big question. Was this a sign that he was the chosen one? After a year of waiting through guest host after guest host, with Gelman standing on the sidelines trying to pick the perfect match for Kelly’s bubbly personality, millions of Regis and Kelly fans waited for an announcement. All this while, Michael’s agent was probably one of the few people who knew for sure.
If someone had told Michael Strahan ten years ago that he would be replacing retired Regis Philbin on Live! With Regis and Kelly, he might have thought they had suffered a few too many head concussions. Fact is, it’s the chemistry that counts and after a year of looking, Michael Gelman found just the right co-host in Strahan. Formerly a defensive end for the New York Giants, Strahan is not only a football analyst on Fox NFL Sunday, but has an additional new gig on what is now Live! With Kelly and Michael, bringing good cheer to millions of morning television viewers.
A move to New York means switching those down-time strolls on Hermosa Beach to the higher paced jogs in Central Park. Now on the market is Strahan’s picturesque beach house only about two blocks from the sand, volley ball nets and surf and a comfortable short stroll to the pier. At over 2,500 square feet, the house has 3 bedrooms, 4 baths and a pretty landscaped terrace. Being the hot property that it is, it already has a contract, but back-up offers are being accepted.
Michael Strahan’s Hermosa Beach, California pad priced at $1,819,000.
