Local realtor Jill Boudreau this week lured Barbara Corcoran, a real estate magnate and star investor on ABC’s “Shark Tank” reality show, to help her promote a nearly $9 million mansion at 200 Pond Rd., that Boudreau has had listed since late last year (we wrote about it here).

Pond Road house on market 2012 WellesleyAt the Tuesday night event at the 10,000+ sq. ft. home, Corcoran discussed real estate trends and the Shark Tank show, among other things, with some 100 brokers who were invited (we rated an invite too, though unfortunately had a prior commitment). WCVB has a slideshow featuring party pictures.

The Boston Herald’s Inside Track wrote up the event, and quotes Corcoran as saying the Georgian Colonial set on 11 acres of land is a steal: “It’s beautiful, a beautiful, perfect house. I think anyone who walks in will not think of it as a typical large mansion but as a real home where they can raise a family and be very happy.”

Corcoran could actually afford the place herself: Her real estate business is worth $5B, according to the “Shark Tank” website.

This isn’t the first time a “Shark Tank” investor has glided into Wellesley, either. Corcoran sidekick Daymond John served as an entrepreneur in residence at Babson College.
