The founder and CEO of a major South Florida furniture liquidating company and his wife are looking to “liquidate” their assets and sell their Fort Lauderdale estate for $13 million.

Michael and Pam Grimme put their waterfront 10,884-square-foot mansion on the market last week, a ONE Sotheby’s spokesperson told The Real Deal. Grimme founded the Tamarac-based AMC Liquidators, which focuses on hotel and office furniture.

The couple paid $2 million for their seven-bedroom, seven-and-a-half-bathroom home at 2301 Aqua Vista in Las Olas Isles in 1996. Property records show the nearly 32,000-square-foot plot in Fort Lauderdale was developed in 1998. It features 315 degrees of wide-river views, a boat dock, waterfront pool, summer kitchen, and separate guesthouse, according to the listing. ONE Sotheby’s Dennis Stevick and Dale Atkins of the DND Associates team are representing the owners.

The Mediterranean-style mansion features an open floor place, a chef’s kitchen with a butler’s pantry and breakfast nook, a guest wing, wine room and a second-story master suite with a private terrace.

AMC Liquidators has been featured on the Travel Channel’s “Hotel Impossible.”

Stevick and Atkins also represented Florida’s former foreclosure king, David J. Stern, in the sale of his Fort Lauderdale mansion. That property, at 5 Harborage Isle Drive, sold for $27.5 million in December.
