Updated at 4:06 p.m. Sunday: Tomi Rose of Opulence International Realty, who helped basketball star LeBron James sell his Miami home, will try to score off listing turnovers by two franchise brokerage firms.

Rose, senior vice president of the sports and entertainment division of Opulence, picked up the listing for a newly built 15,000-square-foot, two-story estate in Pinecrest.

The listing for the home at 5745 SW 94th Street previously was held by One Sotheby’s International and Coldwell Banker’s The Jills.

The nine-bedroom, 10-bathroom home has a Balinese architectural style and occupies a two-acre lot.

Acclaimed architect and builder Frank Mendez designed the new Pinecrest home. Mendez is founder and chief executive officer of Pioneer Inter-Development Inc., which has built more than 100 luxury homes in Pinecrest.

Rose represented James, the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player and former Miami Heat player, in the 2015 sale of his home at 3590 Crystal View Court in Coconut Grove for $13.4 million, $1.6 million below the asking price.

Despite that price haircut, James made a $4 million gain on the sale, according to Rose.
