Three well-known and well-heeled men are unloading Brooklyn properties in deals worth millions of dollars.

Actor Mark Ruffalo recently sold his lovely 19th-century Carroll Gardens townhouse for $3.125 million, Curbed reports. Not too shabby, except the actor paid $3.5 million for the property in 2015, meaning he lost $375,000 in the sale.

The 3,200-square-foot townhouse features four bedrooms, 3 baths, Romanesque wood doors, several marble mantels, cathedral ceilings, a sunroom, and garden.

Author Jonathan Safran Foer has listed his beautiful Boerum Hill brownstone for $10.495 million—double what he paid for it. Located at 374 Pacific Street, the home boasts 8,000 square feet spanning five stories, making it one of the largest homes in brownstone Brooklyn, according to the listing.

Built in 1899, the Greek Revival features eight bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths, a three-story atrium, and ten-foot-high front windows. At 1,400 square feet, the master suite is bigger than most New Yorkers’ apartments—and it also includes a 22-foot-long bathroom.

There is a separate 1,430-square-foot garden-level unit with two bedrooms and two baths. Foer purchased the brownstone for $5.4 million around the time of his divorce from the writer Nicole Krauss in 2014.

Kushner Companies has sold a Brooklyn Heights townhouse at 27 Monroe Place for $12.9 million—the second most expensive home sold in Brooklyn this year, according to the New York Post. Here’s the priciest.

Jared Kushner, former CEO of Kushner Companies and current advisor to Donald Trump, developed the 1844 townhouse after purchasing it from Brooklyn Law School in 2014 for $7.41 million.

The 7,000-square-foot, four-story home features five bedrooms, six baths, three powder rooms, radiant-heated floors, and an elevator.
