What’s different about Windermere Homes & Estates is not so much as what we do, it’s more about what we don’t do. We are not a brokerage who simply targets every new agent through a spam campaign telling you why we’re the best. We do not go after agents for the simple fact of volume. We do not promise the world without the intention of delivering. And we certainly don’t leave our agents high and dry after they’ve joined our company.  


Windermere has always focused on 3 core principles; hiring the best people, giving them the best tools, create thriving communities. It’s as simple as that.


Success - Go Get It!Windermere has always been diligent in recruiting the best agents, and this fundamental truth does not lie on the premise of top producers only, but looks for natural leaders with an ambition and drive to excel. These are some of the most important things we look for when finding our agents, and oftentimes, our agents even find us.


With a reputation for success, along with a flare for fun, Windermere Homes & Estates has never been easily comparable to other local brokerages, and we stand proud of our uniqueness and the business we have built over the years. 


Don’t just take our word for it. Come meet us yourself and find out why so many agents have chosen, and continue to choose Windermere Homes & Estates


We look forward to meeting you.
