Thank you to everyone who recently answered the call for help from Patti Alonzo who was working with 82 year old military veteran Ross Everett to purchase his first home!

Mr. Everett is very appreciative, please click below to view the short video he recorded to say thank you:

Check out the great article written about our very own Kim Coburn in the current edition of Orlando Real Producers Magazine! What an awesome story of overcoming adversity and perseverance to become the very best in her field. We love you Kim!

Kim started her real estate career at the young age of 22. At the time, it was not common for someone so young to become a REALTOR®. With a small network and little experience, Kim struggled. Despite rough beginning, Kim had the skill and the perseverance to eventually land her first listing. That listing snowballed into more listings and potential buyers and her business took off!

In time, Kim became the number one individual agent in SeminoleCounty for several years in a row. But along the way, it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows. Kim was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1999. Despite her diagnosis, Kim continued to grind and even kept her position as a volunteer cheerleading coach. Kim beat breast cancer in 2001, and after nearly 19 years, she is stronger than ever.

Kim owes her success to building relationships. She says, “One thing that hasn’t changed – and this is how I built my business -by building relationships with customers,” she said. “That’s the whole premise of my career – building relationships, making myself memorable and taking care of clients like they’re my family.”

ORLANDO, FL. (January 21, 2019)—Lighthouse Central Florida today named local businessman and former board member, Tom Langmann, chair of their 30th Annual Sight & Sole WalkFest, scheduled for Saturday, March 2, 2019 at Cranes Roost Park in Altamonte Springs.

Langmann, who is a realtor with RE/MAX 200 Realty in Winter Park, has been involved with Lighthouse Central Florida for six years. He first learned about the work of Lighthouse after his wife was diagnosed with macular degeneration, a leading cause of vision loss for Americans age 50 and older. Langmann served on the board of directors from 2014-2017.

“Wow, what an honor,” said Tom Langmann. “This is an organization that is very close to my heart. I’m very excited to help make our community more aware of Lighthouse and the incredible work they do to empower our neighbors who live with vision loss. And my family is eager to help out as well.”

The chairman’s primary duties include helping to recruit community partners to participate in the Sight & Sole WalkFest. As one of Lighthouse’s largest community events, the WalkFest has evolved over the years from traditional “awareness walk” to a family friendly street festival.

The event is meant to raise funds and bring community awareness to the issues facing Central Florida’s community of blind and visually impaired.

Local businesses including restaurants and beverage distributors are all represented in the WalkFest’s vendor village. Past food vendors have included: La Femme Du Fromage, 4Rivers, The Coop, Bagel King, Outback Steakhouse, Hubbly Bubbly, Planet Smoothie and Jeremiah’s Italian Ice.

Daniel Wilson from RE/MAX 200 Realty was recently featured in a story on Channel 6 talking about safety concerns with self-driving cars.  Take a look at the video and complete article on the Click Orlando Channel 6 Website:

ORLANDO, Fla. – Do the rules of the road apply to drivers if you aren’t really driving?

Local realtorand had some safety questions, along with some concerns about his daily driving commute.

Wilson drives to work every day, kind of.

In today’s society, it’s not just cut and dried anymore when it comes to how the rules apply, especially when some drivers are not in complete control of the vehicle. Wilson owns a Tesla and has noticed that other “self-driving” car owners negate some important safety practices.

Wilson had one important question: Is texting and driving legal in a self-driving vehicle when the car has the control?

It may be 2018 and things are starting to look like the “Jetsons,” but the traffic laws apply to all motor vehicles on the road, self-driving or not. As a driver, you are responsible for the safe operation of the car, and texting while in the driver’s seat is still considered illegal and could result in a hefty ticket.

After clearing that up, Wilson shared some things he’s come to learn while owning his new ride.

First and foremost, Wilson was adamant about wearing his seat belt. Just because the car may be able to drive itself doesn’t mean it’s going to put the seat belt on for you.

Making sure you’re aware of your surroundings is another big tip, Wilson said. Being constantly aware of your surroundings will keep you ready to for whatever hazards may present themselves and allow you to be aware when approaching stop signs and red lights.

Join Evelyn Pilchick for the Childrens Miracle Trail Ride benefiting Children’s Miracle Network on November 11th. This will be Evelyn’s 5th year of participating!

The funds raised will help Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children purchase Medical Equipment, Fund Research, pay for uncompensated medical care, and provide advanced medical treatment.  Any donation to this awesome cause is very much appreciated!

The ride is on Saturday, November 11 at Lake X in Saint Cloud.

The Kenneth Kirchman Foundation is a charitable organization that owns a 10,426-acre ranch in St. Cloud, Florida, known as “Lake X,” for the purpose of educating the public (particularly children) about Florida’s ecology and wildlife and is the location for Childrens Miracle Trail Ride.  As the surrounding areas become increasingly populated and infringe on undeveloped areas in Florida, the public is losing familiarity with nature.  The Foundation seeks to address the problem of the public’s ever-increasing disengagement with nature by providing first-hand educational experiences to enhance public awareness, especially among children.

The Lake X Property is one of the most unique tracts of land in all of Florida and includes a 1,400 acre lake surrounded by pristine forests and unspoiled wetlands.  The property was originally purchased in the mid-1950’s by E.C. Kiekhaefer, founder of Mercury Marine Outboards. 

 Mr. Kiekhaefer wanted an added sense of security and anonymity to the property and as a result, named the property “Lake X.”  Ken Kirchman purchased the Lake X Property from Mr. Kiekhaefer in 1984. Having grown up in Florida on Lake Okeechobee, Mr. Kirchman knew the value and importance of preserving the natural beauty of Lake X and set a goal atypical of most landowners:  to keep Lake X the same as it was 100 years ago.

The 850,000 square-foot center will be a highly technological workplace featuring Amazon Robotics. The site, located in Lake Nona, will open in 2018.

“We are excited to join the Orlando community, creating more than 1,500 full-time jobs at our new fulfillment center,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s vice president of North America operations. “We very much appreciate the state and local elected leaders who have supported Amazon’s arrival in Orlando and we look forward to bringing more jobs and investment to the state in the coming months.”

Amazon employees will pick, pack and ship small items like books, electronics and consumer goods to customers.

“I am proud that Amazon has chosen the Orlando area as the best location for their new fulfillment center. Amazon is already a major job creator in Florida, and we’re proud that they are continuing to invest in our state and create new opportunities for our families,” said Governor Rick Scott. “Today’s announcement is a reminder of the important role of Enterprise Florida and local economic development agencies who have worked to market our state so we can outcompete other locations for these major jobs wins.”

Amazon has created more than 4,000 full-time jobs in Florida since building its first fulfillment center in the state in 2013. The new fulfillment center will bring Amazon’s workforce in the Sunshine State to more than 9,000.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Amazon to Central Florida, and look forward to this legendary innovator becoming a part of our community,” said Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs. “We’ve worked hard to expedite permitting and other County functions in order to get this new type of fulfillment distribution center – including Amazon Robotics and a significant investment in technology – up and running. This is a huge win for Central Florida and a wonderful opportunity for our entire community, including the 1,500 employees who will join the Amazon team and all those who will benefit from Amazon’s well-known commitment to the local community.”

Full-time employees at Amazon receive highly-competitive pay, health insurance, disability insurance, retirement savings plans and company stock. The company also offers up to 20 weeks of maternal and parental paid leave and innovative benefits such as Leave Share and Ramp Back, which give new parents flexibility with their growing families.

“Florida’s business climate continues to beat out other states, and we are proud to see Amazon choose the Orlando area for a new fulfillment center,” said Mike Grisson, interim president and CEO of Enterprise Florida. “The workforce, infrastructure and overall business friendliness in Florida lead the nation and this is apparent as our economy continues to grow.”

Amazon also offers full-time employees innovative programs like Career Choice, where the company will pre-pay up to 95 percent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a career at Amazon. Since the program’s launch, over 10,000 employees have pursued degrees in game design and visual communications, nursing, IT programming and radiology, to name a few.

“Amazon’s decision to select Orlando for its next major investment is a tremendous win for the Orlando region,” said Tim Giuliani, president and CEO of the Orlando Economic Partnership. “It says a lot about our status as a major employment hub in the United States when a global leader in ecommerce chooses to add more than 1,500 new jobs in our community. Amazon is a great addition to our region with programs that provide full benefits to employees while also encouraging workers to further their education and improve their skills through a tuition reimbursement incentive.”

“OUC is proud to be part of the team that brought Amazon to our community,” said Roseann Harrington, Vice President, Marketing, Communications and Community Relations, Orlando Utilities Commission. “Working together, we’re helping companies make a power move to Orlando where the payoff is greater reliability, better rates, deeper connections to our community and a greener future. We look forward to serving them and their employees.”

The project is being developed in a partnership between Seefried Industrial Properties and an affiliate of USAA Real Estate Company. Tavistock Development Company entitled and sold the property, and will develop the infrastructure for the project.
