"Great day today. Spent a lot of the day at the Michael Jackson house," he tweeted after being named the listing agent on the King of Pop's $23.9 million dollar mansion. The Holmby Hills property – which Michael Jackson rented for $100,000 a month and features a theater, wine cellar, 14 fireplaces, spa, gym, and swimming pool -- shares a deeper RHOBH connection. "I knew him, and my wife has been friends with Michael Jackson since she was 8-to-10 years old," Mauricio explains to Zillow. "And I personally think there’s some great energy in the house and I see it as a major positive. I'm excited to be selling it."
Although the 7-bedroom, 13-bathroom home evokes memories of Michael Jackson's untimely death, Mauricio states, "It is what it is. There's no need to hide it. Michael Jackson was an amazing human being — he changed music as we know it. Unfortunately, he passed away. It doesn't take away from the house... He loved the master bedroom and he loved the grounds. He was happy there."
