Gisele Bündchen Career
Gisele Bündchen’s modeling career began with two international shows after auditioning for 43 in 1997.
By 2000, she had opened shows for top designers like Marc Jacobs and Dolce and Gabbana. She became the face of Victoria’s Secret, even wearing their most expensive fantasy bra.
Bündchen appeared on the cover of 37 international editions of Vogue and was a Chanel spokeswoman in 2014.
She launched her line of sandals and wrote a best-selling book, Lessons: “My Path to a Meaningful Life,” in 2018, with proceeds supporting social and environmental causes.
Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady were announced as “Brand Ambassadors” for the crypto exchange FTX in June 2021 and starred in several commercials for the company.
However, in November 2022, FTX declared bankruptcy, with its CEO and co-founder Sam Bankman-Fried facing money laundering and wire fraud charges.
On Jan 10, 2023, a bankruptcy court filing revealed that Gisele received 686,761 common shares, and Tom received 1,144,861 shares of FTX. Kevin O’Leary also received 32,000 shares, which he claimed were worth $1 million at their peak.
Based on these figures, it can be estimated that Tom and Gisele’s combined shares were worth around $57 million at one point, in addition to other compensation they likely received.
However, it is unlikely that they, or any other celebrity endorsers, will receive anything in return for their equity stakes.

From 2002 to 2017, Bündchen held the world’s highest-paid model title. She has amassed a fortune of $500 million solely from her successful career in modeling and endorsements. This figure does not include her real estate assets and other non-liquid investments.
In 2015, Bündchen was recognized by the Guinness World Records as the model with the highest earnings from June 2014 to June 2015.
Gisele Bündchen Real Estate
In 2013, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen purchased a lot in a gated community in Massachusetts for $4.5 million and built a 10,000-square-foot mansion on the property. In 2019, they listed the home for sale at $39.5 million, but it has not yet sold.
Tom also invested in real estate in Boston, purchasing a building for $6.24 million in 2006 and converting it into four condos for $11.5 million. In 2011, he sold one of the units for $9.3 million and the other three for a combined $8 million.
In 2009, the couple bought a plot of land in LA’s neighborhood for $9 million and spent $20 million constructing a 14,000-square-foot mansion.
They lived there for less than a year before selling it to Dr. Dre in 2014 for $50 million, earning a profit of $21 million.
In 2018, Tom and Gisele purchased a 12th-floor unit in a New York City building for $25.5 million and sold it in December 2020 for $40 million. They still own a smaller unit in the same building overlooking the Hudson River.
In late 2020, the couple purchased a two-acre estate on Miami’s exclusive Indian Creek island for $17 million, tearing down the existing 5,700-square-foot mansion to build a larger one. Their neighbors include Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, and Carl Icahn.
They also rented Derek Jeter’s Tampa mansion for $75,000 per month before buying their Indian Creek property.
Additionally, the couple owns a property in the Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, Montana, but it is unclear what type of property they own.
