Today on our Tuesday Tour we are taking you to the highly sought-after Lake Como Neighborhood.

The Lake Como neighborhood in Downtown Orlando is a charming tight knit community. With a beautiful mix of 1940s bungalows, mid-century ranch homes and newer Victorian inspired homes there is a style to appeal to every buyer.

Lake Como Park is at the neighborhood’s center and makes for the perfect location for all of Lake Como’s annual events and monthly meetings, which are held by the voluntary neighborhood association.  Because of it’s sense of community and close proximity to major roadways such as I-4 and 408 Lake Como is one of the most sough-after neighborhoods in Downtown Orlando. Homes sell fast here and it’s easy to see why!

I love Lake Como and the community that it has become, I’m so proud to be the top sales agent in this Downtown Orlando neighborhood!

Today on our Tuesday Tour we are taking you to the gorgeous Lawsona/Fern Creek Neighborhood.

Lawsona/Fern Creek is truly one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Downtown Orlando.  From the historic homes to the charming Washington St. bridge, you will not be disappointed.

The Lawsona/Fern Creek neighborhood is located between Thornton Park and the Milk District  so you will never run out of places to eat, drink or shop.  It is very well  known for one of the most beautiful parks in Downtown Orlando, Dickson-Azalea Park.  Located just beneath the historic Washington St. bridge, the park is shaded by sprawling oak trees, nature trails, and lined with azaleas in the Spring.  Across the street the park setting continues at Langford Park with more trails, playgrounds, and pavilions.  The Florida landscape is  picturesque in this neighborhood that is just blocks from Lake Eola and Downtown Orlando.

Valentine’s weekend is here, by now most of you lovebirds have booked a table at your favorite restaurant, scheduled some spa treatments, booked a night at a hotel or have set whatever other romantic plans you had in mind…fancy stuff!  But for those of you who keep it low key, like I do, then I have the perfect way for you to spend your day.

We at the ThinkLiveBe Property Team are dog people, we all have dogs and love them to pieces.  Show your love for your pets by going to this year’s annual Paws in the Park at Lake Eola in Downtown Orlando.  There are lots of great activities planned for both pets and families, there will be pet training demonstrations by Animal Planet star Victoria Stilwell.  There will be dock diving competitions and a Canine Sports arena that will feature agility competitions. And if you don’t have a pet just yet this is a great opportunity to adopt one in need!

This event is all for a great cause, it is to help raise funds to support the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando.  Please take a minute to visit their website and read more about them, they are a really great agency and are entirely supported by donations from the local community. They are not funded by national organizations so any support you can give truly does make a difference.  You can donate as an individual, sponsor the event or even set up a team to raise funds, visit their fundraising page here. And there are some really cool fundraising incentives, the more you raise the more prizes you earn!

No one ever said that Valentine’s Day was only meant to be celebrated by humans, what about the pets that we love and that reciprocate that love back to us even more?

Do you love where you live?

I am currently attending our company’s annual real estate conference. Yesterday we had what is called the Vision speech. This is a look at the trends and forces that will drive the real estate market in 2015. And all of the signs point to it being an amazing time to be buying or selling. It is a balanced market – right where you want to be to make wise real estate decisions and opportunity for all. So my question is where do you want to move this year? You should love where you live and there are opportunities to break into a neighborhood you didn’t think was possible by selling and moving up!

If you could move anywhere in Orlando where would it be? I love my neighborhood but here are some of my other favorites right now and why.

Lake Formosa – (Take Our NEW Neighborhood Video Tour)  home of industrial warehouses and beautiful lake views. It’s an eclectic mix and although the landscape will be changing with the upcoming The Yard project; it provides walkability, history and views. Originally established in 1911 you can see the charming bungalows throughout and feel the history along the railroad. And the Orlando Urban Trail is literally in your back yard to take you anywhere your little bike-riding heart desires.

Lake Como – always a favorite of mine.  This neighborhood is truly a community. The location just southeast of the Central Business District of Downtown Orlando makes it convenient and the neighbors make it a perfect place to call home. The home styles are a nice mix of homes with history and charm all circling around the park and lake where walking your dog and chatting your neighbors is what makes it so special.

Lancaster Park – this neighborhood is full of huge oak trees. All of the Downtown Orlando neighborhoods are known for their oak trees and brick streets, but the main entrance to Lancaster Park is just the perfectly shaded old Florida spot! Located near the ever-growing Orlando Regional Medical Center (ORMC) it is convenient but it feels so secluded and private – not to mention the pride in ownership is evident at every turn. And did I mention the lake views?! Walking the dog is an enjoyable task in this neighborhood!
