• It’s back to the drawing board for the two exclusive Door County properties that went up for auction to the highest bidder earlier this month. “This is so frustrating,” said Todd Good, president of Accelerated Marketing Group of Newport Beach, Calif., the company hired by property owner Allen Musikantow to auction off the property – the 14,000-square-foot La Maison des Deux Fleurs in the gated community of Marshall’s Point on North Bay in the Town of Liberty Grove, and a horse ranch in Sister Bay. Good said the high bidder was from the Chicago area. The high bids were $5,150,000 for the mansion and $2.6 million for the ranch. After the buyer was notified by the escrow company that he had the high bid, the deal called for the buyer to submit cashier’s checks in the amount of $250,000 for the mansion and $100,000 for the ranch as earnest money. When the buyer did not submit those checks by Friday, Aug. 23, the owner considered the buyer in default and pulled the plug on the deal. “We are talking to other people who submitted bids,” Good said.
