The summer games are one of the world’s great sporting traditions, celebrating the discipline and determination of elite champions from around the globe. When an athlete wins gold, silver or bronze, it’s a matter of not only personal pride, but also national pride. In that spirit, we decided to award our own “medals” to homes across California represented by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in three of our favorite event categories: swimming, tennis and basketball. Gold, naturally, represents the best of the best at a price point of $10 million or above; Silver, represents the best in the $5 million and above category; and Bronze reveals the best at $1 million or above.
