This is Adrian Beltre. Third baseman for the Texas Rangers. Born in the Dominican Republic. He is selling this California home, as I mentioned to you earlier in the week, and he and his adorable wife are house-hunting in — where else — Vaquero. (Update: My friend the RealEstalker, a.k.a.

Or this one, one of my all time favorites, because the lines are so clean.

Because, no doubt, while the oil market is depressed, he would be diversified into (what else?) tech. This cool ranch 90 miles outside of Dallas (with plenty of room for a heliport) would be just the […]

Take the Makaha Surfside condos located on the Waianae (why-a-nigh) coast. The west side of Oahu is more rural, away […]
