Retired pitcher and Hall of Famer Jim Palmer is selling his Palm Beach, FL home. According to the WSJ the home originally came on the market around a year ago at $3.4M, and has since had the price reduced to $2.9M.
Jim and his wife Susan, who is an interior designer, purchased the 1940 built home for $1.6M back in 2001 and renovated it. The home is 4,100-sq-ft and has 3 bedrooms, 3½ bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, bay windows, a family room surrounded by glass walls that overlooks a swimming pool, and it’s located only about a block from the beach.
Jim spent 19 years playing for the Baltimore Orioles. According to his real estate agent, Palmer also owns a home in Corona Del Mar, CA, and is selling that home as well so he can downsize and spend more time in California.

I have been in the real estate industry since 2002, and actually starting out as an appraiser.
Before that however, I worked as a residential concrete finisher; which I started as a summer job when I was 13 and over the years worked my way to become a lead foreman.
As both a residential appraiser and concrete finisher, the housing and market experience I’ve gained has truly been an asset.
Shortly after acquiring my appraiser’s license, I went on to become a Real Estate Broker. Since then it’s been a passion of mine to help families and individuals who are buying, selling, relocating, or investing.
In 2004 I purchased my first 2 investment properties and then in 2005 I bought my first primary home. Since then I’ve had over 20+ investment properties including: rentals, lease options, fixer flips, new construction, and vacation rentals. In 2012, I had the opportunity to feature and host a home on HGTV’s “Million Dollar Rooms”.
In 2008 I married my beautiful bride on the beach in Maui. We have two amazing boys and a little girl who’s our princess!

Hello Aaron. My name is Michael Kerns. I am an Architect. I am interested in knowing if you are aware of any professional athlete(s) who has had their home professionally designed by an Architect and/or Interior Designer (and were personally involved in the design process with the design professional)?
i am writing a book on the subject, profiling the athletes view point of the design process, as well as the design professionals view point (from inception to project completion).
If you are familiar with such an athlete(s), I would be very grateful for any direction or assistance you may provide (with acknowledgement in the book of course). My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m not sure if I ever got back to you about your question. Sorry for the delay too.
I’m not too sure on the details, but I know Hines Ward helped contribute to the home building process of his house. Here’s the link:
Also, I’ve heard (and again I don’t know all the details and/or how accurate this is), but I heard that Johnny Damon worked with an Interior Designer on his home. Here’s the link:
Thanks again for taking the time and reading PAH’s!! Glad to see you’re enjoying the posts!
