A former top-20 American tennis player is swinging into a new career.

Ex-USA Olympic team member Vince Spadea joined Douglas Elliman in Palm Beach with goal of capitalizing on his contacts from the professional tennis world and the entertainment industry. In the Los Angeles area, Spadea also owns an entertainment agency.

Spadea received his real estate license in the fall and decided to join Elliman in part because the brokerage owns all of its offices, which “allows me to do referrals in New York, Los Angeles and all the places I’ve lived,” he said. Elliman’s partnership with Knight Frank also contributed to his decision.

Spadea, an American Tennis Association player who earned tennis prizes exceeding $5 million, stopped playing professionally in 2011. He now coaches tennis in Beverly Hills and Palm Beach, and has his entertainment agency in California.

Over the course of his professional tennis career, Spadea beat Roger Federer, Andre Agassi, Andy Roddick and others.

Elliman has expanded its presence in Palm Beach, acquiring Pink Palm Properties in Boca Raton last year, and Tauriello & Co. Real Estate in Delray Beach in 2016.
