While Brooke Mueller has been in the limelight a lot for her personal problems lately, she's also been pretty busy behind the scenes.

In fact, while many thought Charlie Sheen's ex was flipping out, she was actually flipping properties—for a profit. Which is pretty impressive in such a depressed real estate market.

"She's an intelligent woman," a source close to Brooke tells E! News. "A lot of people don't know that Brooke is an extremely savvy, well-educated and highly intelligent person. It's unfortunate that they don't see that side of her."

Wayne Gretzky's former home for sale—and it's right by Britney Spears!

Mueller's most recent flip, is a 9,200 square-foot compound which the actress purchased from former Spice Girl Mel B

The four-bedroom home in the San Fernando Valley was listed as a "stunning celebrity gated compound," with a detached movie theater, guest house, pool, spa, outdoor kitchen, cabana and fire pit. 

Brooke purchased the Tarzana home for $3 million in March 2012, and she's already received an offer for $3.55M—not bad for nine months' work!
