Wanda,

It depends.  One of our clients has a listing on an enormous ranch which is right next door to the ranch that Ronald Reagan used to own.  It does help the listing.  However, Ronald Reagan is deceased and is now dancing in Heaven with Nancy.

We signed NDA (non-disclosure agreements) with celebrity clients, and we did many deals with them.  They promoted us.  That was worth a lot more to us than giving names.  A

As an element in my Property Pedigree product that would most certainly be leveraged. 

Why? It addresses one of the greatest unspoken needs of the potential buyer. They WANT to talk about their home to their visitors. A back story provides that. Better still, "I ran into my neighbor Jay Leno at the Car Parts King this morning." (unspoken -'eat your heart out')

How would your 'expertise' be viewed if you did not share who lives in the community?

Let the property sell itself.  The celebrity could move out next month!  Also the likelihood of the buyers actually meeting and socializing with the celebrity is probably not too likely.  This could also mean more traffic in the neighborhood, also a turn off.  A casual mention while showing the house may be fine but definitely not in print.

In our area, we have the occasional celebrity "home".  A house that was used in a John Hughes film (ie: Risky business, the Home Alone Series, Ferris Bueller, Uncle Buck, Ordinary People, Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, Breakfast Club)... and typically the sellers ask us NOT to mention that in our marketing.... they don't want a bunch of looky-lous making appointments just to gawk.

Of course, the word still gets out... everyone knows the homes... and that iconic garage over the ravine where Cameron sent that classic Ferrari to its doom.

I agree with quite a few of the previous comments, I wouldn't use in my marketing without permission (maybe still not even with permission), give them their privacy, & maybe casually mention at a showing. Unless it is Warren Buffett (maybe) I can imagine the celebrity card can turn off as many as it attracts. If it's The Donald, I may leave that one out completely, for now.

Here on the North Shore of Lake Michigan, we have many, and when the house in Winnetka was listed, everyone already knew it was the "Home Alone" house or Farris Buluer's house. And when Michael Jordan's house was for sale, it was easy since the front of the gate had a big "23" on it. On the other hand, when Mr. T's house was listed, no one really said anything.

No, not unless it was so well known in the community already that people use the home as a landmark for giving directions (you know, turn right just before so-and-so's house).  Now that I think about the question again, no probably not even then.

I would not use the celebrity's name as it would alienate him/her.  I actually have a pocket listing with a well-known actor living across the street.  Everyone in our small town know he lives there anyway.
