When it comes to celebrity real estate, it almost seems like these mega-mansions have revolving doors. Many of the keys end up being passed from one starlet to another.

National real estate brokerage Redfin put together a list of the top celebrity real estate sales of 2013.

The top prize goes to Casa Casuarina, the South Beach mansion once owned by Gianni Versace, which sold for $41.5 million last September. Although the price marked a steep fall from its original $125 million listing, the auction price was high enough to make it the top celebrity real estate deal of the year.

Its current owner plans to turn the 19,000-square-foot estate on Ocean Drive into a hotel.
