Buying Naked

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Tampa Properties

Buying Naked!  Nope, I don't mean going into the home buying process unprepared, I mean actually doing the home search in person while actually NAKED, in your birthday suit!

I know, I know in most of the country and for nearly all of you this would be ridiculous, but here in the Tampa Bay area there is a certain segment of the population that do it every day.  Sure it is a very small percentage, but the buyers and sellers are typically very well-to-do and often own multiple homes, so it is a very NICHE and lucrative market.  

The county directly north of Tampa (which is located in Hillsborough county) is called Pasco county and bills itself as home to the largest number of nudist resorts in the country.  A claim that is probably hard to dispute.

A friend of mine and fellow Realtor at Keller Williams Tampa Properties, Jackie Youngblood, has established herself as the Go To Realtor if you are interested in living and owning within this market.  To her, Buying Naked is almost a daily occurrence.  Jackie is a practicing nudist, however her professionalism prevents her from working nude, although many of her customers do.  She has become so well known to this segment of buyers and sellers that TLC recently shot a two episode TV program called, what else,  Buying Naked .

 

 

You can search your own local listings for the showing times depending on your local cable provider, the show is shot with sort of a humorous twist, but the reality is very, very real

Certainly, Nudism is not for everyone, whether as a personal preference or as a part of your profession.  However, it is a part of our society.  Just like any niche market, working with a particular segment of of the real estate market take time and expertise, Jackie has certainly established herself if you are considering Buying Naked.

Although, I can also help you if she is not available!

Hi Steven. I live in Pasco County. I think it's great that Jackie has set herself apart from others in this niche. Best of luck to her. If I ever get requests from nudists I know who to refer it to...

Steve, I just saw your posting. I watched the clips too. I have worked with Jackie in the past and I must say she is a very professional Real Estate Agent that cares about her clients!

Jackie is a good friend and a great RE Agent.  Developing her niche market around the nudist lifestyle provides her with a multitude of financially secure, first and second home buyers.  I applaud her for what she has accomplished.

Steven, there's nothing like having a niche! Florida's definitely a place to do it! :-)

We have a nudist colony not too far from Denver, and have never had one of those buyers.   It is a bit cold right now to be naked while looking for homes!
