When Players Get Traded, Jordan Stuart Helps Them Move

When Players Get Traded, Jordan Stuart Helps Them Move

Tony Jefferson

If you’ve ever watched Moneyball and viewed the scene in which Billy Beane cleans house –the one where Beane and his sidekick played by Jonah Hill trade Jeremy Giambi and Carlos Peña– you might wonder what happens once the traded player leaves the clubhouse. Does every Major League Baseball team, or every pro sports team, for that matter, have a “traveling secretary” — someone who just takes care of it all? Not really. 

 

For every athlete, the possibility of a trade prompts an obvious question, “Where am I going to live?”

 

That’s where Jordan Stuart comes in. Stuart is a real estate agent and the founder of the Washington, D.C.-based real estate collaborative Next Move. Over the last four years, he’s worked with more than 100 professional athletes nationwide. But he says that his foray into working with pro athletes wasn’t premeditated.
