Queensland rugby legend turned Fox Sports commentator Gorden Tallis has sold four east coast properties in the last four weeks.

Agents have been left in the dark as to why the former Maroon is selling the property.

He's sold two apartments and one townhouse in Sydney, as well as a house in Queensland, with proceeds totalling around $3.5 million.

The former Dragon and Bronco, known as the Raging Bull for his tenaciousness on the field, had hung on to all of the properties for well over a decade.

He bought the Sydney apartments in Randwick and Wollstonecraft and the Brookvale townhouse while he was at the Broncos.

The two bedroom, two bathroom Wollstonecraft apartment (above) was the most recent sale.

It fetched $1.15 million through LJ Hooker Crows Nest agent Mark Rosati. Tallis paid $480,000 in 2000.

His Randwick apartment (below) was the next purchase, costing $440,000 a few months later.

James Giltinan at Coogee Real Estate sold the apartment without offering a price guide, but its expected to have fetched around $1 million.

The Brookvale townhouse (below) he's had the least amount of time.

He paid $1,035,000 for the designer townhouse in The Kilns security complex in 2003 from the developer. It sold for $1,385,000 at its recent auction through Jack Elsegood at Domain Residential.

Tallis sold one of his Queensland houses for $1,005,000 earlier this week.

He watched on at its 50 strong auction to see the six bedroom Chapel Hill home sell, bringing to an end a two decade ownership.

Tallis had paid $344,000 in 1997 for the home west of the Brisbane CBD.

Tallis and wife Christine retain a six bedroom Bardon home, slightly closer to the CBD, that they paid $1.15 million for in 2006.

Born in Townsville, Tallis won the 1997, 1998 and 2000 Grand Finals with the Broncos having started his career at St George Dragons.
