We here in Florida are in the 3rd most populous state in the country, behind only California and Texas (2015), yet we are 22nd in geographical size!  That’s an impressive standing!  I’ve always discerned distinct types of Buyers / Owners here in our market, which makes us a particularly dynamic area (yes, sometimes dramatic, too).  Here they are, by category:    

  1. Residents.  These are the folks who make the Greater Orlando area their home.  They work and live here and make it the great area that it is. Our biggest employees (2018) are Walt Disney World Resort, Adventist Health (think Florida Hospital) and Universal Orlando Resort.
  2. Vacation Residence.  Some (lucky!) people just have to have a home here in Central Florida, and they do!  Many keep the home for their private use, but as we have wonderful areas that are zoned for Short Term rental, many Owners put their property in a vacation rental plan and collect income while other families get to enjoy their great place when they themselves aren’t using it.  Most counties now have made Airbnb provisions further increasing short term rental opportunities.
  3. Investors.  These are the folks who look at Florida as a great place to purchase a property and use it strictly as an income producing property, leasing it out, while achieving equity, as well.  Our affordable prices and very strong rental market make the Orlando areas a prime ROI region.

With baby boomers retiring at the count of 10,000 a day (2018), it is no wonder Florida remains among the most dynamic real estate markets in the nation. Proximity to the parks allows many boomers to become the favorite member of the family, as grandchildren and relatives with youngsters flock to enjoy all that we have to offer here. Our weather is fabulous year round. We actually do have culture here (visit that link), and you will never get tired of trying new restaurants–WalletHub rated us #6 Foodie City in the nation (2017)! 

Having lived in big cities before (Boston, Los Angeles), and having traveled and experienced most, I never tire of discovering all that the Greater Orlando area has to offer.  I would like to help you enjoy this great and ever growing area of the Country. If you fall into one of the above general categories, I want to assist you with your real estate needs.  I will be your area expert, guide you to great homes, view the homes that suit your needs and appeal to you the most, negotiate a great deal for you, and safely and deftly guide you through the safety of the real estate contract to closing!  There’s a lot to it, and with care and quality, we’ll get you to where you want to be! So call me, won’t you?  Share with me your real estate dreams, and together we will realize them for you!

Lastly, when you hire me, you get me. Period.   

Let me help you!  It’s what I do.  And it would be a privilege to do so.
