Talent agency founder, wife buy house for $8.9M in Palm Beach

James E. Dixon, who built a New York City-based talent agency with clients including Jimmy Kimmel, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, is the new co-owner of a 1950s-era house on the North End of Palm Beach

Dixon and his wife, Tanja, paid a recorded $8.9 million for the house at 256 Mockingbird Trail. Measuring about a half-acre, the property was being marketed with town-approved architectural plans for a new residence, the sales listing said. 

The Dixons are still finalizing their plans for the property, said agent Gary Pohrer, who acted on their behalf in the sale with his Douglas Elliman Real Estate colleague Chris Leavitt. The buyers might tweak the already-approved plans or start fresh, Pohrer said.

A 1950s-era house at 256 Mockingbird Trail on the North End has changed hands with town-approved house plans for a recorded $8.9 million.
Just sold for a recorded $8.9 million, a house at 256 Mockingbird Trail has a covered loggia near the backyard pool.

James Dixon founded and was president and CEO of Dixon Talent Inc. when he sold the boutique agency in 2015 to WME-IMG, with the understanding it would continue to operate independently under the same name, according to published reports at the time of the sale. 

Built in 1951, the three-bedroom house the Dixons bought stands midway between the Palm Beach Country Club and the northern tip of the island. With 4,292 square feet of living space, inside and out, the house is the second one east of North Lake Way on the south side of Mockingbird Trail.
