I have to give Candace Carlisle credit, though, because she called up John and asked him what went down with the auction that didn’t happen. That’s called reporting!
“We decided not to go through with the structured sell or auction, and we got an unsolicited offer along the way that didn’t end up making, and so we took some time to chill and enjoy the property,” Goff told the Dallas Business Journal.
We posted this $5.9 listing back on May 24. It is going to be very interesting to see how this fares. I mean, if anyone there can sell it, John Zimmerman can. But if anyone can auction it, Concierge Auction can. Which reminds me: there is a hot new auction house coming to town I have to tell you about! Not enough hours in the day to tell you all these stories!
Anyhow, two VIP Dallas brokers were involved in the auction sale, Kyle Crews and Daylon Pereira, and they came very, very close bringing in that unsolicited offer that happened right before the auction. But then it didn’t happen. That’s Real Estate. There is also a clue to how very hard this transaction is going to be in Candace’s opening paragraph:
Billionaire John Goff has put his family retreat alongside Eagle Mountain Lake in Fort Worth on the market after he decided not to sell it after putting it on the auction block last fall. Even though it’s back on the market, he’s not necessarily anxious to sell it.
I hope the Goffs are enjoying Mariposa this holiday weekend. And I just wanted you all to know we are not sitting on our gluts here at CandysDirt.com… jump for the full article we published in May:
