Has Tiger Woods’ ex-fling proven her savvy for New York real estate? An apartment at 77 Park Avenue owned by Mr. Woods’ former mistress, Rachel Uchitel, has gone to contract, and the nightclub manager/hostess/TV correspondent didn’t do too badly for herself. Ms. Uchitel purchased the apartment last year, but according to Curbed, she never moved in. Instead Ms. Uchitel engineered an extensive renovation.

A listing by Sotheby’s agent Kate Meckler notes that the 1,650-square-foot apartment has new bathrooms, custom closets, high ceilings and hardwood floors throughout. Photos of the apartment in the property listing show Ms. Uchitel has a penchant for animal-print rugs, with zebra and leopard patterns appearing in several of the rooms. (We first noticed the trade through Streeteasy and gossip vehicle TMZ.)

According to StreetEasy, Ms. Uchitel originally listed the apartment for $1.95 million. She paid $1.625 million for it last year, slightly less than the $1.849 million asking price. Ms. Uchitel purchased the property from Jon-Claude Zucconi and his wife Riann Smith, an editor at Cosmopolitan magazine noted for her sex quizzes.

    What the article doesn’t say is rachel used the 10 million dollars paid to her by Tiger Woods to keep her mouth shut, to purchase the apt.

    She was subsequently forced to give the money back because she could keep her mouth closed. So while she may have made a few bucks on the transfer of this property it was in the process of losing $10 million
