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 city-data.com.
     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.
