A picture of us with our twin granddaughters


Ralph and I have owned rental properties for a long time.

It has always been important to us to provide our tenants with clean, well-maintained homes in safe, attractive locations.

In exchange, we expect our tenants to treat our houses with respect and honor the terms of our rental agreements.

If you are seeking a place to call home...somewhere you can live comfortably for a long time...I hope you will take the time to peruse this site.

Most of our homes are occupied, but when a house (or houses) is available, it will be listed on the top right sidebar. Once you find a home you are interested in seeing, please give us a call at 352-409-5100 to set up an appointment.

On the top of the page you will also find a link to our rental application. There is no fee to apply but to be considered for tenancy a completed application as well as a deposit are required.  Homes rent quickly so it helps to come prepared.

Thank you for visiting our site.  We look forward to meeting you soon!
