3 Major League Baseball wives hit ‘home runs’ using realtor.com

In the same way it takes teamwork to hit a home run in baseball, it takes an equal amount of help and coordination to find the perfect place to call home base.

Just ahead of the Major League Baseball’s trade deadline, realtor.com launched “Home Run Home,” a series of videos that feature Julianna Zobrist, Leslee Holliday and Jennifer Utley — three women who know all about finding a home on a whim since their husbands are MLB superstars for the Chicago Cubs, New York Yankees, and Los Angeles Dodgers, respectively.

Collectively, Zobrist, Holliday, and Utley have lived in a whopping 33 homes in cities across the U.S., and they’ve used realtor.com to make the home search process easier.

“Moving doesn’t scare me,” Utley said in a press release. “I realize that moving is fun and can be a game if you want it to be. I’m always watching the market.” She has lived in 12 homes since 2003.

“The whole process is my happy place,” she added. “I’m very particular about my home, and I have a lot of experience and I’ve definitely curated my want list.”

“Using filters are really very easy. I can pinpoint exactly what I want in a house with the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, pool, no pool, yard, what neighborhood I’m in, what schools I want.”

Holliday, who moved to New York City in December, says realtor.com’s 3-D tours made finding a home easy — even though she was more than 1,000 miles away in Florida.

“It was just really inconvenient for us to fly up to New York City and walk through every single home we saw,” Holliday said. “3-D tours allowed us to make a decision from home which is very, very convenient.”

Finally, Zobrist, who has moved 10 times in 10 years, says the site’s draw feature helped her pinpoint the perfect Chicago neighborhood — close to Wrigley Field with plenty of activities for children.

“When Chicago called, it felt like the stars aligned,” she said. “We had to move quickly and do it efficiently.”

“We realized that we desired for our kids to be around more children and for us to be closer to the stadium,” she added. “I totally love the draw search feature because then you are able to pinpoint the area you want to live in.”

The ladies’ videos are featured on realtor.com, and shorter versions will air on the Home Team Sports Network over the course of two weeks. Furthermore, realtor.com will be hosting a trade-inspired “Buyer’s and Seller’s” segment on 19 pre-game MLB shows.

“Home has important and different meaning to everyone,” said realtor.com Head of Brand and Chief Creative Andrew Strickman. “Families of professional athletes often experience sudden moves when traded between teams, providing additional challenges to find the home of their dreams.”

“Our partnership with Home Team Sports highlights realtor.com’s dedication to helping every family — even those who live their lives on the move like our favorite baseball players — find their dream home.”
