Think of it as the house that “Big Momma’s House” built.
The 35,000-square-foot Buckhead estate formerly owned by producer and actor Tyler Perry recently sold for $15 million, making it the biggest residential real estate deal in Atlanta this year.
Lisa Robinson of The Robinson Group, Engel & Völkers Atlanta, served as the buyer’s agent for the estate, which features seven bedrooms, an infinity-edge pool and indoor resistance pool, a ballroom with a catering kitchen, tennis courts, a fitness gym, a spa, a theater and a caretaker’s suite.
Robinson noted in a press release that the deal was done while adhering to coronavirus safety measures and utilizing Engel & Völkers technology services such as virtual tours. She said that it took a miracle to close the multi-million deal during a pandemic. “God is truly amazing,” she said. “I’m grateful for the sage leadership of our Mayor Keisha Lance-Bottoms in naming real estate professionals as critical for infrastructure, which allowed my team to function within her social distancing guidelines.”
Christa Huffstickler, founder and CEO of Engel & Völkers Atlanta, noted that Robinson was able to sell the estate that many before her tried to move. “At Engel & Völkers Atlanta, we have a track record of closing deals, establishing meaningful relationships with our clients and providing clients with the best experience possible,” Huffstickler said.
