Many clients utilize our services because they simply don’t have the time, energy or desire to manage their own investment property or deal with the day-to-day tenant issues. If you’d prefer not to get a phone call at 2:00 am about a leaking water heater or an A/C Unit that has stopped working, this program is designed for you.
Some are investors and are located many miles away from their investment property and desire our ‘local representation’ so that we can respond and act on behalf of the property owner. Other clients retain Apollo Realty simply to avoid the necessity of their personal involvement with tenants, handling tenant disputes, dealing with rent collections, handling rent increases, lease renewals, screening for replacement tenants, responding to ‘emergency’ issues 24/7 which involve arranging ongoing and emergency property maintenance, and the headaches of dealing with multiple contractors.Read More

The team at Apollo Realty has its finger on the pulse of the Space Coast real estate market. Every day, we know which properties have just listed, or just reduced, or have just come under contract. We also know which comparative properties (or “comps”) an appraiser is most likely to consider. We also know the particulars of a neighborhood, all of which factors in to our ability to help our clients make a reasonable estimate of what a viable purchase or sales price might be.Read More
