  Trump Estate Tops List of Country’s Most Expensive Homes for
                      Sale at $125 Million
                  Top Price in the Estes Park Colorado Area is $7,500,000

Estes Park, CO, February 1, 2006 – A Palm Beach, Florida home priced at $125 million and
owned by Donald Trump tops the list of 1000 of the most expensive homes currently on the
market in the U.S., according to the just-released Unique Homes magazine’s special issue,
Ultimate Homes, 2006. Trump purchased the waterfront estate, -- Maison de l’Amitie -- at
auction and put Apprentice Kendra Todd to work redoing the home which is listed for $55
million above the U.S. sale price record set in 2005 with the sale of financier Ron Perleman’s
home, also in Palm Beach.

By comparison, the most expensive home currently listed in the Estes Park MLS is a $7,500,000

“The home prices on this year’s Ultimate Homes list reinforce the fact that the national market in
luxury properties has been booming,” said Laurie Moore-Moore, Founder and President of The
Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, a Dallas-based organization whose members have $404
million worth of the top properties on the list. “Last year’s highest priced property for sale was
$75 million. This year that home, located in New York’s Hamptons, is number two on the list.”

“There are currently 13 properties in the Estes Park Colorado MLS system priced at a million
dollars or more,” according to Robby Carson, a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist and
real estate broker with Century 21 Peak Realty in Estes Park Colorado. “Although the population
of our town is small, our area has a large number of luxury homes due to our incredible mountain

Rocky Mountain National Park and Roosevelt National Forest surround the village of Estes Park,
Colorado with spectacular mountain scenery, abundant wildlife habitat, miles of hiking trails and
scenic drives including Trail Ridge Road over the Continental Divide, the highest paved road in
the U.S, and the Peak to Peak Scenic Byway. Located 70 miles from Denver’s International
Airport, Estes Park is an ideal getaway for the affluent to own homes.

“The national million-dollar-home sales statistic isn’t available yet for 2005,” added Moore-
Moore. “However, the number of million dollar homes sold in the country jumped from 10,000
in 1999 to about 51,000 in 2004. Many marketplaces are seeing slowing appreciation and longer
sales time, but the upper-tier segment remains active. Rising affluence, ample numbers of second
home purchasers, international buyers, and creative low cost mortgages continue to help drive
the market.”
