Orlando Real Estate
Orlando, Florida serves as the most popular destination in Central Florida, to visitors and residents alike.

Orlando real estate is getting a lot of attention due to the buzzing tech scene; some are even calling it the “New Silicon Valley,” and Forbes has named Orlando the top city in the nation for overall job growth in 2014. Orlando has maintained its hometown warmth amid all of the city’s urban development, with a wide variety of real estate to choose from in its number of thriving districts. Orlando real estate includes luxury condos, high-end townhomes, cozy bungalows, idyllic apartments, and exclusive lakefront homes among many others.
Downtown Orlando Real Estate
Home IS downtown!
Orlando’s eclectic downtown district, with its tree-lined bricked and cobbled streets, causes both Orlando residents and worldwide visitors to invariably consider a move to downtown. And if people can’t actually live in downtown Orlando, they still want to BE in downtown Orlando. Whether or not they come to enjoy Sunday brunch, opt to walk to the popular farmer’s market, shop in unique clothing, art and antique shops, watch fireworks on special holidays around coveted Lake Eola, go on a nostalgic old fashioned swan boat ride, attend an outdoor concert, participate in a foot race, or enjoy food trucks at the many outdoor festivals, both visitors and residents find the City Beautiful – well, truly beautiful.
Exceptional Downtown Orlando real estate can be found in neighborhoods such as: Thornton Park, home to many upscale condos and a thriving commercial district; College Park, a popular residential area for young professionals, due to its close proximity to downtown; Colonialtown, home to craftsman-style bungalows with open front porches; and Delaney Park, with its older homes rich with history among modern, lakeside apartments.

As one resident describes it, “I wanted to be in downtown Orlando for its big time city work here, live here, play here affinity, but I didn’t realize I would get big city amenities with small town attention. Love my condo. Love my city. Love my markets. Love my coffee café and wine bar. Love people and puppy watching. Love my favorite pedicab when I want to enjoy a really late night out. But mostly, I just love my neighborhood!”
