Offering top REALTOR® services in a comfortable, relaxed manner

If you are relocating to Central Florida or simply changing your address, I am a FULL TIME Realtor with the singular goal of making your relocation or move as smooth as possible.   My customers know me to be honest and trustworthy, thus earning my tag line of  “Honestly. Better”

I am a top producer at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty. I have received a distinguished GRI designation from the Graduate Realtor Institute. I have received both the Presidents Award, and the Prestigious Silver Pinnacle award. I have obtained training and credentials to be recognized as both a Relocation Specialist and a Certified Distress Property Expert (helping homeowners avoid foreclosure, and investors locating properties.)

I have over 30 years of experience in Central Florida. By moving into Orlando in the 80's I have seen the city and its suburbs grow and evolve. If you choose me to help find your new home, you will have the advantage of an EXPERIENCED Realtor that will provide you unsurpassed local knowledge of Orlando, it’s suburbs, theme parks, golf courses, beaches and family activities that make Central Florida such a great place to live, work, and play. This info will supplement your own research when selecting a place to live. My customers become personal friends that I continue to serve for life.

What makes me successful? I would say it’s my approach and affiliation.

IF you are listing your property for sale, I begin by developing an extensive marketing plan customized to your specific home and area. Then, we put the power and brand of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices into action. This results in attracting more buyers than any other Real Estate Broker. I stay involved through the whole process from contract to closing. A good Realtor not only handles any challenges, but stays current and anticipates problems to make sure the transaction is meeting the contractual timelines, arranging for any necessary repairs, and that the closing occurs smoothly and seamlessly. I also make it a practice to personally meet with the appraiser to provide them with important information and comparable sales in the area that insure that your home and the care and investment that you made are understood and included in the calculation that will gives the homeowner the opportunity to get the maximum price for his/her property.

If you are a buyer considering my services, I will focus your search not on the age old 3 criteria (location, location, location) but on my perspective that a good deal is a 3 –legged stool – The cost of the property, the amenities available, and the location. Our relationship will begin with me effectively listening and asking questions to establish your needs and wants. With that info, we will together find you your new home, for the best price.
Previous to my real estate career, I worked in the hospitality industry as a financial analyst. I am most proud of the years that I spent at Disney and Hyatt – two leaders in establishing a work culture based on ‘doing the right thing.’
I am married with an adult daughter (teacher). Our family has been involved in community affairs, and deeply believes in giving back. I was a member of the Board of Directors at the Rosen Jewish Community Center for 7 years, and our family continues an active role as an original founder of Southwest Orlando Jewish Congregation.                           
Another cause I help support is Dave’s House. At Dave’s House, they envision a world in which individuals with serious mental illness (SMI) have permanent supportive housing – and hope.  Having a home is the foundation of a happy existence.
As a volunteer I have logged countless hours participating on committees for fund raising, galas, programming, membership, and flipping burgers for high school band boosters. I could go on, but you get the picture!
In closing, I hope that this introduction will result in you contacting me. There is nothing better than an in person conversation and meeting. I am well known for my customer service, attention to detail, and desire to work a strong, fair and equitable deal for everyone. I have become well known to the Realtors in the area. This provides a sense of trust with the other agents, and that results in a well planned, efficient closing.
Thanks again for choosing Paula Kotzin as your on-line Orlando, Windermere, Ocoee, Winter Garden, Clermont, Kissimmee, Winter Park, Lake Mary, Maitland real estate source.
