Olympians are lining up to secure property gold across the country from their auction listings.

Mark Turnbull, the Sydney 2000 sailing gold medallist, has his Gardenvale home listed for late August auction through hockingstuart agent Peter Kennett.

Turnbull — who won the 470 Class event at the Sydney 2000 Games — has $2 million plus hopes for the four bedroom contemporary home (above).

It was built four years ago for his family who will be upsizing in the area where the Olympian grew up.

James Stewart, who competed at the 1996, 2000 and 2004 Olympics in rowing, is selling his Mosman home in Sydney.

The renovated three-bedroom 1910 Federation Ourimbah Road semi (below) is listed with LJ Hooker agent Cameron Scott.

Elsewhere in Mosman, the Olympic fast man Matt Shirvington and wife, Jessica have relisted their Mosman home for a third marketing campaign.

The updated 1897 Federation home is offered through McGrath's Michael Coombs with a $4.3 million to $4.6 million price guidance.

Shirvo, known as the second fastest Australian sprinter of all time, paid $2.5 million in 2008, the year he retired as a professional athlete.

Shirvington is currently a sports presenter on Fox Sports NRL coverage. 

Other former Olympians have turned their drive to selling property as estate agents. 

The water polo player Gail Miller, who secured gold in 2000, has joined a Brisbane agency.

She holds a property economics degree from QUT.

“Every time the next Olympics comes around you do start to reminisce about those times and memories,” she told The Courier Mail.

“In one sense it feels like yesterday and in another it feels like a lifetime ago.

“It sets the path to the rest of your life, you can do whatever it is you want.”

In Sydney's east Carl Wilson, who swam at the 1988 Seoul games, sold an investment property of the Sydney Swans captain Kieren Jack recently for $1,815,000.
