We are honored that you have found us at TopOrlandoVacationHomes.com.
You are here looking for the best way to find your dream home in Florida for the lowest price and with the least hassle. We are here to help you do just that.
Our Unique Approach
The first big thing to emphasize is that we are not at all like others in the industry. We don’t fit the stereotypical mold: we are absolutely unable to offer the shallow and over-hyped style that characterizes many real estate sales encounters, so if that style is what you must have, it’s unlikely that you will value what we do.
Instead, we come to the Real Estate world from “consulting”-type backgrounds, with the result that we want to treat your search for the right home with more respect by adopting a more responsive approach.
Ask for our assistance and we will:
- Seek to understand your requirements in some detail. Not just the size and type of home you are looking for, but other personal and financial issues that define your needs too;
- Contrast various communities and locations for you as a way to make clear the differences;
- Identify various neighborhoods for you to explore, if necessary, so you can check out the differences first-hand;
- Match available properties, new homes or MLS listings to all of the above, so you are presented with those that fit the best, and
- Help you from start to finish and more – throughout the buying process and beyond.
We fully believe that our clients find the best choices at the lowest price in this way, and our track record supports that belief.
So Who Are We?
The “Us” comprises Chris Poff (Broker) and Colin Stafford (Realtor) and our goal is to make your real estate buying venture as successful and enjoyable as possible.
Our combined real estate experience adds up to more than fifty years, during which we have bought, managed, rented and sold millions of dollars of Central Florida real estate, and that (plus our careers prior to Real Estate) enables us to advise you on every aspect of your requirements.
Because both of us came to Florida from out of State (Chris is from Ohio and Colin from the UK), we know exactly how great the Florida lifestyle is by comparison to other parts of the world and we enjoy helping others to experience it too. We want you to enjoy the same rewards that we have by owning property here.
More About Our Background
From Chris, in his own words:
Let me try to summarize the experience that has translated into an unparalleled knowledge of real estate and business and extremely satisfied Florida Luxury Home clients.
Born in Columbus, Ohio (yes, I’m a die hard Buckeye!), I earned my 4-year degree at Ohio State University and my Masters in Education – Dept. of Health, Physed and Nutrition from the University of Cincinnati. A serial entrepreneur, I started my first business at 18. By the age of 30, I had conceptualized and raised funds for one of the first privately funded, medically based health/fitness testing and training facilities in the Midwest, The Human Performance Institute. I have a vast experience in running businesses and in business turn-arounds.
Moving to Florida in 1993, I earned my Florida Real Estate License in 1998 and my Florida Real Estate Broker License in 2002. I enjoy a reputation as a no-nonsense go-to consultant in Luxury Homes in Florida. I am internationally known and have clients the world over – I have helped them successfully locate and purchase Windemere Luxury Homes, Waterfront Homes in St. Petersburg and snow bird or vacation homes near Disney, Orlando, to name a few.
I continue to base my success and reputation on total honesty, over-the-top knowledge of the market and a team of support experts that is unsurpassed in their ability. These include mortgage and finance specialists, accounting, legal, rental management, home building, repair, and renovation.
I reside in the Kissimmee area, although I travel throughout the state of Florida for my clients. I am passionate about Florida luxury homes and real estate!
My hobbies are health/fitness, dancing, animals and nature, and enjoying the breathtaking beauty of sunny Florida outdoors and all of the attractions and pastimes it provides.
And Colin, again in his own words:
That’s me, over there on the right. Years of experience and toil have helped to make that hair gray and to create those wrinkles on the face! But those things have also given me the knowledge and abilities that you can use to your advantage, and for free.
I live and work in the Four Corners area and I have helped my clients to buy Kissimmee homes, Davenport homes, Clermont homes and homes in Celebration Florida. In addition to my local expertise and my background prior to becoming a real estate professional (I started out as an accountant and then moved into management consulting), I’ve personally bought, managed and sold many properties in these localities. Originally from the UK, I’ve been lucky enough to live in Florida for 15 years, so if you’re moving here too or buying for the first time, I can relate to your challenges.
All of this means that, not only can I find you the right property, but I can also advise you on the financial, economic and practical issues of owning real estate in the Central Florida region. From my experience as an independent real estate business owner in addition to having been part of Realtor teams such as Coldwell Banker and Perfect Florida Homes, I have access to an enormous pool of expertise in all of the areas relating to the real estate world.
And finally, some words about Commitment:
We want to give you 100% commitment to make your real estate experience a success, because we believe that’s what you deserve. In return we ask for your commitment too. So if you’re searching the Internet and want to work independently or with multiple real estate agents, you are perfectly entitled to do that, but please understand that we are unlikely to be a good match. On the other hand, if you want or need someone who is:
- totally on your side,
- willing to challenge your ideas to make sure you are certain about what you’re planning,
- focused on getting you the right deal, and
- a continuing source of support even after you’ve committed to buy . . .
. . . . . then we’re the ones that you need.
So if any or all of the above looks as if we can help . . . . then call us now!
Locating your perfect Florida Vacation Home is an easy and simple process, when you have the right people on your side.
