CENTURY 21 Carioti

Florida native born in Hollywood, moved to Cocoa Beach before settling in Windermere 32 years ago. I have seen farmland develop into cities and prime Real Estate. I have participated in the development of Horizon West/Windermere, which is now one of the fastest growing areas in Central Florida. I have attended many meetings to ensure the schools, parks, and recreation areas to maintain the highest of standards for the families moving to this area. In 1986, 535 was two lane road. If your car broke down, you couldn't pull off the road or you would be in the ditch. Roadside orange stands were on the honor system as it is a well trusted community. Now this land has been developed in multi-million dollar communities that includes homes ranging $200,000 to million dollars, schools, shopping, parks & keeps growing. I enjoy helping every family find a home that perfectly fits their needs, turning a dream into reality. I have spent most of life negotiating transactions, I know how to navigate and conquer the deal. Buying a home is biggest decision in your life, it should also be one of the most pleasurable moments in your life. I ensure you, I will handle the process while you enjoy your new chapter in life. You can have confidence in myself, as your realtor, no matter if you are selling or buying a new home, down sizing, relocating or investing, or in search of lake front, country club, golf communities, single family dwellings, town houses, condos or a second home at the beach. I will assure you find a home of your dreams in Dr. Phillips, Windermere, Winter Garden, Horizon West, Orlando, Winter Park, Golden Oaks.

My Experience

  • Many years of buying and selling several properties including rentals, single-family dwelling, commercial land. Participated in many government meetings giving opinions and advice on zoning planning, annexation, parks, county budget, future growth and development in making Southwest Orange County the most sought after Real Estate. I have viewed many of these subdivisions by Lennar, Taylor Morrison, Beazer Homes, Can Atlantic Homes, Dream Homes, K Hovnanian, Concorde, Miranda Homes, Ryan, Park Square Homes, Hanover Homes, & Mattamy Homes and watched them go from orange groves and pine trees to well developed subdivisions with all the amenities.
