Bring it on home!

Top Realtors in Lake and Sumter are a driving force.

Any homeowner knows the pitfalls of buying or selling a house. Fortunately, Lake and Sumter counties are loaded with a vast roster of hardworking Realtors who can help first-time buyers or longtime owners navigate around those pitfalls.

The landscape of this area is constantly changing, and as the counties continue to grow, more homes are being built, more families and members of the workforce are moving in and Realtors are busier than ever—and, let’s face it, a little more prosperous, too.

In this issue, we present the Realtor of the Year, Jim Mariucci, as chosen by the Realtors Association of Lake & Sumter Counties, along with profiles of Top Realtors and the annual list of top producers—those million-dollar and multimillion-dollar sellers who are movers and shakers in the area. These Realtors make sure buyers and sellers are happy and help them find the perfect match for their needs. 

Maybe it’s time to take a leap into a new home. Or take a leap on Leap Day, Feb. 29. People born on that date get to celebrate their true birthdays only every fourth year during Leap Year. But many people also look at Leap Day as an “extra” day in their lives and an opportunity for adventure or trying something new. Read our feature story to see how you can celebrate Leap Day.

Our staff also goes behind the scenes of the upcoming Leesburg Mardi Gras, ventures into CREATION Health Kitchen at AdventHealth Waterman Hospital for cooking tips and profiles other colorful people and places.

We hope you enjoy this issue, and don’t forget that special someone…

Happy Valentine’s Day!
