Andre Agassi tennis superstar of Las Vegas joins America Online co-founder Steve Case in developing Exclusive Resorts a worldwide real estate project of multi-million dollar resort homes for luxury travel.
Andre Agassi and wife Steffi Graf tennis star will partner with Case’s Exclusive Resorts, luxury residence club, to develop luxury tennis courts and additional resort sites that will add to the company’s 38 worldwide locations.
Steve Case invested in Exclusive Resorts luxury travel club in 2003. The company operates luxury vacation homes and estates available for up to 45 days annually to members who pay a one-time fee of as much as $425,000 and additional annual maintenance dues of up to $27,500.
Agassi, now consulting with his wife operates at Agassi Graf Development LLC from Las Vegas on the tennis and fitness programs had already switched to public-relations terms in discussing the Exclusive Resorts venture.
“I spent a lot of my time working to affect people for a few hours on the tennis court,” Agassi said as he was waiting in Newark Liberty International Airport to board a flight back to his home in Las Vegas. “It’s the real lifestyle impact that’s up my alley now.”
Case, like anyone else who follows tennis, had heard about Agassi’s impending retirement. He got word from Brent Handler, one of his partners at Exclusive Resorts, that Agassi and his business partner Perry Rogers were toying with the idea of doing more luxury resort real estate work.
Case invited Agassi to Washington in June, they went to dinner and the two hit it off. They worked out the details of the plan, which will involve a partnership on both new resort locations and development of the tennis courts.
“I think he has the opportunity to emerge as a lifestyle brand, much as Greg Norman was a great golfer who’s now established himself in a lot of business ventures,” said Case, the chairman of Exclusive Resorts, based in the District and Denver.
Agassi will be a senior adviser to Exclusive Resorts. Case said he has been impressed by Agassi’s business acumen. He founded the Pure nightclub, part of Caesars Palace Las Vegas hotel. Source: Washington Post.
