Our company was formed during a conversation with friends who happened to own two whippet dogs, while we have a little YorkiePoo.  My friend and I were both agents of the same real estate franchise and we were planning to join a British friend who was forming her own company but needed a “Broker of Record” to create it in early 2020.  Since I had my Broker’s license for 12 years I decided it was time to utilize that license and I accepted the responsibility of managing her company.  However, covid hit the world and changed everything.  Our British friend could not go forward with her plans, and we had to decide whether to go back to the franchise or make plans of our own.  We brainstormed for a unique and “catchy” name for a company, my husband and I, my friend and her husband and TWO whippet dogs in the room.  My husband actually blurted out, “Whippet Properties” and my friend’s husband added “of Florida.”  And there our company was born!  We all love dogs but knew “YorkiePoo Realty” just would not work.

With over 20 years of experience from all of us, we decided to have a small company that would offer not only that varied real estate experience, but personal customer service while building relationships, exceptional training and mentoring for our agents, and the most positive transactional experience anyone could give to customers.    We pride ourselves on honesty and integrity, with adherence to strong ethical principles and values and our mission is to treat all our customers with the utmost respect while handling their most prized possessions:  their homes.

Words cannot adequately express my gratitude to you for the dedication, professionalism and sincere manner in which you marketed and sold my home.

Linda, Leesburg, FL


You always kept in contact and kept us updated with any developments regarding our purchase. We could count on you to be prompt and thorough every step of the way.

— Dale and Adrian, Surrey, England


Even before we left home you contacted us to determine the exact type of home we were looking for. Then you took us to many homes even after we fell in love with the very first one so that we would be absolutely certain of our choice.

Julie and Peter, Lancs, England


We worked over the course of three years looking for the perfect home. You were very patient, thorough, knowledgeable and responsive and we never felt rushed or pressured

Tampa’s Bodacious Team

Tbt Tampa
Tampa’s Bodacious Team: Tina, Barbara and Tina.

What does “bodacious” mean?  Some will think it means attractive or sexual in some way, but the actual definition states the meaning to be “excellent, admirable, impressive and remarkable.”  Three professional women wanted to collaborate their experience and expertise to help families and change lives so they formed “Tampa’s Bodacious Team” known as Tina, Barbara and Tina.  

TINA Gordon is a Mortgage Loan Originator with Lincoln Lending Group. She has held multiple positions as a loan processor, closer, underwriter, sales manager and account executive for over three decades.  In her current position she loves having the ability to be a part of her client’s journey either through a first-time home purchase, downsizing a home or refinancing.  She provides personalized service with exceptional availability to every borrower, meeting their needs in every area.  Tina also has a heart for children and she personally donates $200 from every closed loan to the Children’s Home Network.

BARBARA Doeringer has 23 years of real estate experience having worked with manufactured housing, new home construction, vacation homes and senior communities. She is now the Broker and owner of her own real estate company and has three other agents on her team.  She also has 17 years of experience in the banking industry, working with installment loans and mortgages, then managing a branch office before becoming an Assistant Vice-President.  Barbara is certified in real estate training, a senior specialist and probate real estate.  She also has a Florida license as a notary public.  She gives each client personal attention and will do whatever it takes to ensure a successful closing.  

TINA Spinks is Vice-President of Spinks Law Firm and oversees client services and community outreach for the Firm.  Attorney Ed Spinks helps families with estate planning, elder law, and special needs trusts. With 25 years of military experience in the Marines, Mr. Spinks also represents Veterans and their families with VA Pension Benefits.  Spinks Law Firm assists families with wills/trusts, power of attorney, Medicaid qualification, Special Needs Trust, ABLE Act, Veteran benefits, probate, and asset protection.  Tina supports clients and families that need assistance with community resources, and she also networks in the greater Tampa Bay area.   Together with Ed, she is focused on helping to change the lives of families.
