Be Very Careful as Horsing Around Can Get Very Expensive

Like over $500,000 per stall!


If you are out shopping for a new spot to house your pony I am afraid you are a bit late on this 22 room crib out in Wellington, Florida. It was snapped up quickly after a very short time on the market for the tidy sum of $12,000,000 or an incredible $545,454.54 per horse.

Sure you get a nice 4 acre parcel within a nose of the Grand Prix and Grand Hunter rings at the Equestrian Club. Yes. you get a nice field of bermunda grass and 4 paddocks. Yes, you get a sand ring with fiber footing and even 4 bedrooms in an 1,800 square foot pad for your horse people. But still you shelled our over a half a miliion per bed per horse.

The buyer was Further Lane Farm Holdings but according to the Jewish Business News the buyer is actually the creator of Saturday Night Live, Mr. Lorne Michaels. This funny man already has a much more modest home for himself in Wellington. The joke however just might be on him as the man laughing all the way to the bank is William Snellings who appears to have pocketed a cool $4.5 million dollar profit on a parcel he held for well less than two years.

Now that’s some horse cents!

After spending years among the top individual performers at one of Palm Beach County’s largest and most successful real estate brokerages, Tom Priester knew there was another way to do real estate. A better way. Real estate services focused on the customer. Like the old days when the customer truly was #1. He tired of listening to why he should be going out to have his customers sign one sided buyers’ brokerage agreements. He tired of hearing how he should be selling customers why paying higher commissions, like 7% and 8%, was to their benefit. He tired of hearing how he should sell his clients on why they should be paying hundreds of dollars in additional “transaction fees”. The business had slid way too far from being focused on the customer. His customer. So he decided the time was right to be different… design. To start his own unique boutique real estate firm truly focused on his customers. They will now have access to a process focused on them. Only the best marketing techniques to sell their homes. No cutting corners. Commission structures based on his clients needs not his. Paradise Sharks was born out of Tom’s passion to return this business to the customer. Where it belongs. If you want a real estate experience that benefits you, just give Tom a call at 561 308-0175 or send him an e-mail at You can always pay more and receive less but that just would not make any sense. Would it?
