Matt Birk, NFL Six-time Pro Bowl Player Chooses Naples FL for Vacation Home

Real Estate Broker/Owner with White Sands Realty

Matt Birk Ravens Center 77Although the Ravens season ended last night in a close playoff game with the Patriots, center Matt Birk (No. 77), may be looking forward to licking his wounds in sunny Naples, Florida in the weeks to come.

Birk purchased a home in Naples for vacations with his wife and six children earlier this year.

Matt and his wife were in Naples over the summer and decided that it was a perfect place to vacation as a family. As a Harvard graduate and recently named in the top 10 smartest athletes by Sporting News, other NFL players may want to follow his lead.

"Matt purchased a single-family home for a great price, close to Olde Naples and the beaches," according to his Realtor, Mark Weber, Broker and owner of White Sands Realty. "Matt is an intelligent guy and conservative. He sees the value in buying real estate now and knows there is little downside to a home in Naples," said Weber.

For privacy reasons, we won't divulge exactly where Matt Birk purchased his Naples home. We can tell you it was a new home in a community close to downtown and the beach.

Other notable celebrity athletes calling Naples, Florida home are Mike Ditka, NFL player and coach and Larry Bird, NBA basketball player.

"I hope more athletes will take Matt's lead and call Naples home in their off-season. It's laid back and low key here which translates to less celebrity pressure. A family guy like Matt can blend in and keep a low profile in Naples," commented Weber.
