John Smoltz is a Red Sox now

Services for Real Estate Pros with R & D Art

I still can not get use to the fact that John Smoltz has become a Red Sox. When I see him in that uniform, I will not know what to think. it just does not seem right. With that said, change was bound to happen. The uncertainity of his future with the Atlanta Braves had to be a big deciding factor.

I wonder if he is going to move to Boston permantely or if he would retain his Alpharetta, Georgia residence. I also wonder if he would use a realtor like Bushari Group Real Estate to find him a great property in the city, or if he would take his search to the suburbs as he did in Atlanta.

Regardless whether John looks for one of the many Boston Condos or if his search takes him to the suburbs, he is face with the same questions that any other major star has; Do I sell my current residence. The big issue here is that we are generally talking high end property. These properties usually stand the test of the market conditions and finding such a property in the Boston Luxury Real Estate market takes a Realtor that knows their stuff. 

All in all, I personally would not sell my home in Alpharetta if I were John. I have seen it and know that it would be hard to replace. Even though he is no longer a Brave, he is great for the City of Atlanta and it's surrounding cities.

After all of these years, wow.  I thought he would retire a Brave.  He definitely has a passion for the game!

Hi Danny

John is an outstanding baseball player and has enjoyed a long and successful career with Atlanta; I wish him success in Boston.

Good luck and success

Being a Braves fan back in the 70's I was surprised he has come to Boston. I hope he helps us like Schilling did if for only a year.

Maybe he would like to buy a lake house up here in New Hampshire.

It will be strange to see him in another uniform!  I do wish him well, and I hope that he can do what Glavine did and go back to retire!

Being as big of a Red Sox fan as I am, I'm very happy he made the move to Boston.  Heck, maybe I can help him find a vacation home in New Hampshire or Maine!

John Smoltz is and will always be a Atlanta Braves to me. He had some great years in Atlanta and a World Champions in 1995.
