NBA Hall-of-Famer Shaquille O’Neal Sells Palatial Florida Mansion

Pro basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal has sold his grandeur-embodied Isleworth estate at 9927 Griffin Court. Benjamin Hillman of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s Southwest Orlando office exclusively represented O’Neal in the undisclosed deal — listing and closing the property in just seven months.
Privately situated on three acres overlooking tranquil Lake Butler, this magnificent custom home sits behind the gates of Isleworth, one of the most prestigious private golf club communities in the world. Upon arrival through the estate’s dramatic arched porte cochere, a world of luxury awaits. Encompassing over 31,000 square feet of living space, the residence boasts an epic 6,000-square-foot indoor basketball court. Recent updates to the estate include new landscaping and new paint throughout the interior of the home. The pool and outdoor kitchen have been staged, and the entire interior of the residence has been restaged.

Quote:
“I was on floor duty when the call came in from an unrecognizable number. ‘This is Shaq, and I’m calling you to sell my home.’ I responded, ‘It’s about time you called me.’ Shaq laughed and continued, ‘I’ve heard about you; they call you the closer and that’s why I’m calling you.’ Over the past few years, four other agents tried and failed to sell this extraordinary estate. I was lucky No. 5. Shaq trusted me to find him a buyer, and I assured him I was the agent to do it. I seek out complicated deals and work to make them happen by leveraging the unrivaled resources of our global real estate brand.”
