Palmer Ranch Communities


Originally part of the 80,000 acres purchased by Bertha Honore Palmer in the early 1900, Palmer Ranch was once a cattle ranch.  Parts of the land are still used for cattle and farming today, but much of it has been developed into housing communities and shopping centers.

Palmer Ranch SignPalmer Ranch is now a well-crafted, 10,000+ acre, master planned community.   It has a great network and availability of golfing, shopping, dining, recreation activities, beach and bay access and top schools.  Palmer Ranch has 35+ neighborhoods and communities that vary in several ways, offering everyone an opportunity to find what is perfect for them!

My family and I reside in Palmer Ranch and if you are in need of a Palmer Ranch expert, you have found me!  

Palmer Ranch has become one of the most popular areas of Sarasota to live because of its very well planned out neighborhoods, location to many conveniences, and the diversity of housing styles from maintenance free condos to million dollar estates.
