Condo Metropolis is Orlando's free, one-stop shop for condos, plus MLS access. Condo Metropolis is also home to the Orlando Condo Blog where you'll find all of Orlando's latest condo news & gossip!
Who Launched Condo Metropolis?
Marcus Burke is the owner and founder of Condo Metropolis LLC which has been in business since 2006. He was President of the Central Park Condominium Association's Board of Directors in Orlando 2008. He holds a Florida broker's real estate license and is a member of the National Association of Realtors and local MLS. A published British author and journalist, he speaks French and German and earned his doctorate in Social Psychology from the University of Essex.
Because Condo Metropolis specialises in condos - in Orlando. Period. We do not list houses in Miami, nor commercial buildings in Tampa. Orlando condos are our business. We know every "for sale" development from pre-construction to new conversion. We are THE specialists for condos in the greater Orlando area.
Do I have to take an agent?
You don't. You can go it alone if you like. But prices and incentives change frequently, and in an increasingly tight market-place, it's important to know if and how you ought to negotiate. Remember, on-site sales agents represent the developer's interests - not yours. An agent costs nothing when you buy, so why not use the expertise of a local agent to help you navigate Orlando's ever growing maze of choices? You'll do less driving and waste less time. You'll find your new home or investment faster.
Why are agent's services free?
When you purchase a condominium, an agent's commission is paid by the developer. So you get the services of a knowledgeable local agent at zero cost. So why go it alone? Experts are on hand to help!
"Marcus: It was a pleasure working with you to purchase our condo. All went smoothly (and fast) considering the distances involved. We very much appreciated your video of the unit. It allowed us to make the offer with more confidence. We will certainly recommend your services in the future." R. Welch, May 2009, Canada.
