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.
