PropertyManagement

ORLANDO, FL – December 5, 2017 – Property management companies have efficient systems in place to effectively collect rent and maintain on-time payments, and help remove the stress from homeownership.  A good property management company will manage all aspects of the tenant-landlord relationship. There are many property management companies in Orlando. At Stockworth, we have a concierge approach to property management.

Zillow says, “Are you a hands-on landlord, or would you prefer to avoid weekend maintenance calls or monthly rental income and expense management? If you’d rather have someone else handle the details, hiring a property management company to manage your real estate investment might be the right choice for you. Yes, they’ll take a cut of your rental revenue, but they can also help streamline your business and free up your time.”

And at the end of the day, time is money.

Stockworth Management is pleased to offer concierge property management services. Our clients trust us to find and screen only the best tenants, supervise the proper caring and management for their homes and serve as their ongoing tenant liaison. In essence, you place your home in our hands and we will care for it like it is our own. And, when you are ready to sell, you will have access to our world-class team of agents. Mark Hayes, Stockworth’s President and Broker, has been selling, managing and renting properties since 1985. Under his leadership, Stockworth Realty has the experience, the team and the systems in place to care for your property the way you would.

Why you should use a real estate vs. for sale by owner l Orlando Real Estate

ORLANDO, FL – August 17, 2017 – Why should you use a real estate agent instead of selling your home by yourself? Realtor.com just came out with an article that says it all. Most homeowners believe they are saving money. But when it really comes down to it, and they do the math, they are not saving money at all.

Realtor.com states, “statistics show that selling your home with the assistance of a professional real estate agent will garner you a higher profit, enough to cover the commission, as well as put more money in your pocket. According to the National Association of Realtor®’s 2016 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, the average FSBO sales price was $185,000, while the average price for a home represented by an agent was $245,000. That’s a difference of $60,000!”

If you are considering selling your home by yourself or know someone who is, you might want to share this valuable information. Our experienced team of professionals is passionate about selling homes and we would love the opportunity to sell yours. Give us a call at 407-909-5900 or email us at sales@stockworth.com to get a free home valuation.

More reasons to hire a real estate agent can be found in the full Realtor.com article here: http://www.realtor.com/advice/sell/why-fsbo-sales-fail/?cid=soc_fy18editorial_20170816_73686127&adbid=897934750320480258&adbpl=tw&adbpr=17351940

Educational preschool focused on innovative STEAM learning and preparing students for digital future
Kids Take Over Ceremonial Groundbreaking with “Move the Dirt” Event

Orlando, Florida (December 8, 2016)Amazing Explorers Academy®, the Central Florida based educational preschool, together with Tavistock Development Co., has announced its first franchise, located in the center of innovation, Lake Nona’s Laureate Park Village Center.

Amazing Explorers Academy®, a school focused on inspiring, connecting and engaging the youngest great minds of the 21st century, announced the franchise with a kid-focused, hands-on event, in the heart of Lake Nona’s Laureate Park community. The “Move the Dirt” event led by current Amazing Explorers Academy® students and youngest residents of Lake Nona, helped move the dirt just steps from where the school will be constructed in the Laureate Park Village Center along Tavistock Lakes Boulevard. The IMG_04191school, expected to open in the summer of 2017, will be able to accommodate 230 students from infancy through through pre-kindergarten, as well as a before and after school program for elementary students. It is the first expansion of the company, which prides itself on its engagement with children and their families to prepare them for the 21st and 22nd century.

“To expand here to Lake Nona, a community that is committed and focused on innovation and collaboration is a perfect fit for Amazing Explorers Academy®,” said Marnie Forestieri, Chief Learning Officer and Owner, Amazing Explorers Academy®. “This is a place where teachers value the child, promote group learning and exploration and engage the future minds of our community. This generation is going to lead us through the 21st century and it is our job as educators to cultivate creativity, critical thinking skills and collaboration. We couldn’t imagine a more ideal partner in Tavistock and place for theAmazing Explorers Academy® vision to grow than right here in the heart of Lake Nona.”

Amazing Explorers Academy® is the first tenant in the third phase of Lake Nona’s Laureate Park Village Center. The franchisee for the center, AEA Southeast Orlando, LLC will be led by partners Marnie Forestieri, Fabrizio Spinelli and Ray Veloso. The 12,000-square-foot facility, and additional 4,500 square feet of exterior playground space, will sit on approximately one acre of land that will be purchased from Tavistock. The site will be developed by Yellow Rock Construction of Orlando. Yellow Rock is led by Brazilian contractor and real estate investor Ray Veloso and CEO of Yellow Rock Construction.

In addition to Yellow Rock Construction, the development team will be led by Alex Stone’s architectural firm Stonebridge Contracting and and Farid Twill from CGC Twill Engineering, Inc.

The Amazing Explorers Academy® project is being financed by First Colony Bank headquartered in Maitland, Florida. First Colony Bank, founded in 2008 is solely-owned by Central Florida business leaders and focuses exclusively on meeting financial needs in the Central Florida community.

Amazing Explorers Academy® came on the educational preschool scene in 2015 with the launch of its first school in the popular Orlando suburb of Oviedo. The school quickly filled to capacity with 250 students. The school’s concept began with the assembly of a task force, leading thinkers including university professors, entrepreneurs, technology experts and community leaders from around Central Florida and beyond who helped identify the new challenges facing the early childhood industry. Working closely with University of Central Florida professors and researchers the school developed a new education approach to redefine the next generation.

As with Amazing Explorers Academy Oviedo®, the Lake Nona location will include innovative, handson, learning environments including a fully digital L’Atelier, a technology & art studio, inspired by the Reggio Schools in Italy. Modeled after 21st century collaborative spaces, such as Apple, Google and Pixar companies, where real employees innovate, design and engage, preschoolers will do the same, creating projects using multimedia, early programming, robotics and early coding skills.

IMG_0389Amazing Explorers Academy® is the future of early childhood education, here in Central Florida and beyond,” says Carol Ann Dykes, President, Central Florida STEM Council. “The vision of introducing STEAM in early childhood education was nurtured through interactions with the STEM SQUAD, a group of University of Central Florida professors and community leaders involved in the development of the curriculum. The success and continued growth of Amazing Explorers Academy® represents the tremendous benefit of community collaboration and partnership.”

Amazing Explorers Academy® plans to expand its reach with the building of additional franchises throughout the region over the next five years. Franchises are available throughout the state of Florida in Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville and south Florida.

For franchising questions contact Fabrizio Spinelli, 0407-922-5337, fs@aexplorers.com.
