Obamas May Have Just Purchased Magnum P.I. Home In Hawaii
It’ll be a great day when he’s living there full-time…
The luxurious beachfront Hawaiian home made famous by the television series “Magnum, P.I.” was sold this week, and the buyers seem to have ties to President Barack Obama.
According to a report from Fox affiliate KHON, Waimanalo Paradise LLC purchased the property on Monday for $8.7 million. Its contact is reportedly listed as Obama donor Seth Madorsky, a lawyer in Chicago. The property was then sold to another limited liability corporation based in Colorado, according to a report from ABC affiliate KITV.
The deed and the mortgage are both signed by Judy Grimanis, KHON reported.
Grimanis is an executive assistant at The Vistria Group, a private-equity firm in Chicago. Her name is the same as that of a person who worked for Obama fundraiser (and current Commerce Secretary) Penny Pritzker’s companies.
The Vistria Group is run by Marty Nesbitt, a frequent Obama golf and travel partner in Hawaii.
The home — dubbed “Robin’s Nest” on the 1980s hit TV show — is best known as the fictional abode of novelist Robin Masters, the enigmatic host of private investigator Thomas Magnum, played by a mustachioed Tom Selleck. More
