Deion Sanders Sued Over|$17 Million Home Sale

McKINNEY, Texas (CN) - A Realtor sued Deion Sanders for $1 million, claiming the two-sport athlete stiffed her on a commission for Sanders' Texas home, which was listed at $15 million.

William Davis Realty and Lachandra Lewis sued Sanders on March 10, in Collin County Court.

The 10-bedroom, 10-bath, 29,122-square-foot home in Prosper, Texas was listed as off the market on Internet real estate sites Friday afternoon.

Prosper (pop. 29,200), north of Dallas, had a median household income of $108,626 in 2012, more than twice the state average, according to

Lewis claims Sanders gave her a 1-year exclusive right to sell the house on March 18, 2013, with a 5 percent commission if she did so.

She claims she got a willing buyer on April 4, 2013, who was willing to pay the list price, then a second buyer, "ready, willing and even eager" to buy the house for $21 million.

She says that Sanders approved the sale to the second buyer, for $17 million, and they closed for that price on Aug. 26, 2014.

She demands $1,050,000 - 5 percent of the sale price.

She is represented by Russ Lambert, of Farmers Branch.
