It’s a slam dunk for Ceci Amrhein-Gallasch.

The Joyner Fine Properties agent has sold the former home of Shaka and Maya Smart after several months on the market.

The Colonial Revival-style Fan District home at 2701 Park Ave. sold off market to Mark J. and Mary Lou Rickey, according to a deed filed in Richmond Circuit Court.

The 2½-story, 15-room house sold for $1.26 million, below its initial asking price of $1.49 million. The property was listed in mid-June last year but was taken off market in late November.

Amrhein-Gallasch did not return messages seeking comment. The sale was first reported by the Times-Dispatch.

The house was put on the market following the Smarts’ move to Texas, where Shaka Smart accepted the top men’s coaching job at the University of Texas after six years as VCU’s men’s basketball coach.

Smart was replaced at VCU by former assistant coach Will Wade, who purchased a house last year near Maymont.

Built in 1921, the Park Avenue house was designed by local architect Isaac Skinner. Spanning 3,900 square feet, the brick house was modified while the Smarts lived there with higher and wider room entries to accommodate the basketball players who would visit, Amrhein-Gallasch said last year.

The Smarts purchased the house in 2012 for $999,000. The latest city assessment values the property at $1.12 million.
