    Twitter co-founder Evan Williams is selling his mansion in the Noe Valley neighborhood of San Francisco for $2,995,000. First reported by Curbed SF, Williams and his wife Sara purchased the home at 313 Duncan Street in 2009 for $2.4 million. They remodeled the pad in the family-friendly neighborhood and they’re now saying #goodbye to the home.

    In true Twitter fashion, here’s the property description in 140 characters:

    3-level fully-restored Victorian home with 4 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, separate guest house, private garden, and rooftop deck.

    The Williams had originally planned to demolish another house they owned in the Parnassus Heights neighborhood of San Francisco and build a brand new home, but neighbors aggressively opposed the project and its fate is currently unknown.

    When he’s not battling his neighbors, Williams is working on a new start-up project, Medium. He left his role at Twitter in 2011.

          When Jeremy Renner isn’t killing bad guys in action movies, he tries his hand at flipping houses. Turns out that the Academy Award-nominated “Hurt Locker” actor has some serious real estate skills. After 6 months on the market, there is now a “Sale Pending” sign hanging on his latest project, an Art Deco-style home in the ritzy Beverly Hills enclave of Holmby Hills.

          Dubbed “The Reserve,” Renner’s flip at 107 N Delfern Drive was purchased by the actor and his business partners in 2010 for $7 million. Over the past three years, the home has been rebuilt by architect Philip Vertoch and designed by Renner’s partner Kristoffer Winters.

          Renner and his partners were asking $24,950,000 for the high-priced flip. Now under contract, we’ll have to wait and see what the final sales price clocks in at. The yet-to-be-indentified buyer will soon come home to 2 lush and layered acres that house a single story home featuring over 10,000 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, 5 fireplaces, a cobblestone driveway, pool, spa, home theater, 14′ ceilings and much more.

              Glee starlet Naya Rivera has flipped her home in Beverly Hills, making nearly half a million dollars along the way.  She paid $1.475 million for the Beverly Hills Post Office-area home on April 4, 2012 and just told it for $1,930,000. This kind of return isn’t common in every market, but in this celebrity-infested Beverly Hills neighborhood, buyers pay big bucks for the 90210 zip code!

              Rivera made her house flip a family affair – she employed her mother Yolanda Rivera as the listing agent on the home.  Nice work, mom!

              Rivera’s just-sold home is on a cul-de-sac and has been remodeled and features 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms spread out over 3,300 square feet.  The home includes a formal living area and dining room overlooking the courtyard and pool. The library includes a wet bar with its own kegerator! The master suite includes dual walk-in closets and a built-in sauna and steam room. The backyard includes a completely remodeled salt water pool, jacuzzi and fire pit.

              Rivera recently decamped to a 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 4,186 square foot East Coast traditional estate in Los Feliz that property records show she purchased on April 15, 2013 for $2,600,000.

                The serene and private Spanish-style villa was built in 1929 and has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and spans 3,284 square feet. It has a dramatic courtyard entry, city views, wood floors, gorgeous original details like tile and beamed ceilings. A library/study leads out to terraced grounds with a gazebo.

                  Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. is selling his ‘starter home’ in Northridge, California for $729,000. Purchased by the budding actor on February 10, 1999 for $439,000, the now bonafide star is ready to part with the 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 3,538 square foot home at 19356 Vista Grande Way if someone can “show him the money” and come in close to his $729,000 asking price.

                  It’s pretty clear Cuba hasn’t made this home his main priority in the past few years. The listing photos suggest that the home needs some major upgrading and even the listing language says that the home “needs TLC” and will be sold “as-is.” This is the perfect purchase for someone who wants to take on the renovations in order to live in a home with a pool in a family-friendly neighborhood.

                  Like any celebrity with hit after hit, Cuba upgraded his living situation and moved into a 6 bedroom, 7 bathroom, 6,753 square foot mansion in Pacific Palisades that he purchased on May 31, 2000 for $3,500,000.

                  In case you were wondering, Cuba’s listing agent isn’t named Jerry Maguire, it’s actually Bernie Leibovitch of Rodeo Realty.

                    Tom Hanks and wife of 25 years, Rita Wilson, are shedding one of the houses from their “Big” property portfolio for $5.22 million. Purchased by the A-list duo for $1.9 million when they were first married in 1988, the home has 4 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and is 6,289 square feet. The gorgeous but rather boring and monochromatic house has large living spaces, a library and even a private beauty salon.

                    Two years back, Hanks and Wilson made real estate headlines when they paid $26 million for another Pacific Palisades mansion that could easily be mistaken for Los Angeles‘ famous hilltop Getty Museum.

                    Hanks and Wilson’s other property holdings include yet another Pacific Palisades mansion they picked up in January 2010 for $1.45 million and a beachfront Malibu Colony spread they’ve owned since the early 1990′s.

                      Jodie Foster is selling her home at 9219 Flicker Way in the Hollywood Hills for $6,399,000! Property records show the actress purchased this ‘Bird Street’ estate from model Cheryl Tiegs in 1995.

                      With a distinguished address and oodles of famous neighbors, Foster’s Spanish Villa is the ultimate celebrity hideaway, as it offers privacy, security and style.

                      The home has 4 bedrooms, 4 full and 2 half bathrooms, an office and an attached guest suite. Adjacent to a formal dining room, a butler’s pantry leads to a stunning kitchen. A luxurious master suite features a sitting area, walk-in closets, fireplace and sauna.

                      Outside, the central courtyard pool and brick patio are shielded by a high-reaching hedge for the utmost seclusion – a must for the notoriously private Foster, who had never openly discussed her private life in the public until she outed herself in an emotional speech while accepting a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes.

                      In other real estate moves, Jodie was busy last year. She sold her Beverly Hills mansion for $8.3 million in January 2012 and purchased the home she and her sons are likely to be moving in to – a 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 3,752 square foot home in Beverly Hills she paid $11,750,000 for on June 25, 2012.
