The Miami Heat have signed four new marquee free agents from other
teams, including superstars LeBron James and Chris Bosh, and with Dwyane
Wade also looking for a new home, realtors are fighting like mad to be
picked to help them find their new digs. James is still
looking for a house
, contrary to previous reports. “The realtors, some of them are
desperately throwing themselves at these [athletes],” said Hazel
Goldman, who recently sold Wade’s home in Pinecrest. “They’re trying to
show that they’re the ones that have the ‘in’ and know the market and
what to buy.” Ron Shuffield, president of Esslinger-Wooten-Maxwell, said
the stars could boost the high-end sector of Miami real estate. [Miami
