Leon Rose And William Wesley Negotiate Real Estate Purchase
Creative Artists Agency’s basketball agent, Leon Rose, and newly minted coaches agent, William “Worldwide Wes” Wesley, were recently spotted discussing a purchase of 12 apartments on 2 floors of the W New York Downtown Hotel & Residences. Included in the discussion was Jacqueline Bayer of Moinian Group, which is one of the largest privately held real estate groups in the country. The group manages over $8 billion in assets. The New York Post wonders, Could the W Downtown become an NBA dorm? Communal bathrooms would be an interesting thought. I’ll throw my name in there as a potential RA (Residential Advisor).
It is interesting, though, to imagine Rose and Wes negotiating such a large real estate deal for their clients. It really makes CAA look like a true “one-stop shop” where athletes have their agents handle practically everything on their behalf.
