Advantages of Having Lake County Premier Properties Representation:

Put 20 years of experience and connections to work– Through his career working for developers in the area, Matt has forged relationships with the top home builders in Central Florida. He understands how to pair his clients with the appropriate home builder that meets their financial requirements, vision, and style. We know who the best architects are and we know who the best builders and/or developers are. Building a house on time is important, Lake County Premier Properties holds builders to a timeline and ensures the project completion dates are met.

Free to the Buyer– Having Lake County Premier Properties assist in your new home purchase is free of charge to the buyer. Referral fees paid to Realtors® are a “cost of doing business” to the developer. They want their consumers to have the peace of mind that comes with knowing they have their own representation.

Experienced Representation We are highly experienced in New Home transactions and Pre Construction. We can assist with negotiations on your behalf. The builder’s representative may tell you, “this is the final price”, but remember their allegiance is primarily with their employer. We will put our negotiating skills to work for you and push for a lower price and/or more upgrades.
