Florida Tolbert Team SELLS “UNSELLABLE HOUSE ORLANDO” in 12 Days! NEXT?

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Advantage III Realty in Lake Nona BK3059813



Welcome to the INAUGURAL "UNSELLABLE HOUSES ORLANDO".  This seller could not sell her house in current condition for more than $225,000.  This is where the innovative approach of The Florida Tolbert Team at Keller Williams Advantage III Realty comes in!  We met the seller, a wonderful widow and she told us this was her final sale as she was off to live with the kids and grand kids, and she needed every penny.  Now any wholesale buyer, We buy ugly homes, and so many others would love to buy this for cheap and fix and flip and keep the profits, however, our compassion for our sellers is what sets our team apart.We spoke to the seller and explained that we could sell this home for an estimated $450,000 if it was remodeled and she let us know while that sounded wonderful, she didn't have any money to contribute.  Hence the birth of "Unsellable Houses Orlando:" Using the strategies of the popular HGTV show, we told the seller we could fund the improvements, upgrade the home, and get her top dollar.  At the end, we would recover our upgrade costs from the final sale price, and the difference from the unsellable price of $225,000 to the new sale price less upgrades would be shared with the listing team, The Florida Tolbert Team!  Our team of Kevin B Tolbert, Christine F Goolsby-Tolbert and James Moore along with some amazing vendor partners completely remodeled this home from roof to slab and you can see the before and after videos attached.  The final result is an incredible Sale Price of $435,000 in just 12 days. After repairs and sharing of profits here are the numbers:


Sale Price: $435,000 Repairs: $66,500 Previous Offer: $225,000 Gross Profit: $143,500, Agents Share: $59,250 Seller's NET PROFIT: $309,250 or $84,250 MORE IN HER POCKET! This was our first and a huge WIN WIN for the seller and the team and we at Florida Tolbert Team are currently interviewing for our next success story, so if you are looking to sell your home and want a professional team to come out and share our vision to maximize your selling price, call The Florida Tolbert Team today at 772-834-0099 and speak with our Team Leader, Kevin B Tolbert, ALC, GRI, CDPE, RSPS, Luxury Home Million Dollar Guild Here is the opportunity of the year! We present this COMPLETELY REMODELED 3 Bed 2 Ba 2 Car w/Florida Room and fenced yard, only minutes from Waterford Lakes, 408, UCF, and so much more. This previous 1994 Home has been completely remodeled to 2023 and the list of new features is long and all fully warranted. Let's start at the top with new Roof in 2020, then new plumbing with all new piping and water heater, new 15 seer A/C, new Bluetooth MYQ garage opener, new paint inside and out, new electrical, new lighting, new electrical outlets with usb ports, new ceiling fans, brand new lifetime guaranteed NuCore Luxury Vinyl flooring, new Quartz counters and new all wood cabinets and new breakfast bar, new ceiling fans with lights in all bedrooms and family room, and the icing on the cake is 2 amazing brand new baths with tiled walls, tiles floors, lighted and defrosting mirrors, and luxury led lighting for energy efficiency throughout home, and we included brand new LG Stainless Steel appliances and disposal and the best part is EVERYTHING IS coming unregistered and ready to put in new buyers name for full warranties.

Just a few shout outs to our vendor partners:


Floor and Decor provided all the flooring, tile, backsplash, bath wall tile, LED Mirrors, and much more.

Home Depot was by far our biggest supplier of garage door opener, mulch, doors, fans, light fixtures, hardware, porch door, hoses, sprinkler, flooring materials, drywall materials, and so much more.  

Galaxy Cabinets stepped up in a huge way to help save this seller money.  They provided the complete kitchen, both bathroom vanities, and the shower door and for far less than any other bid and top quality materials.  Definitely call Mo the owner for all of your remodeling needs and tell him we sent you.

Best Buy The waterford lakes location was awesome.  After waiting nearly a month for the appliances from Lowes, we find out they are backordered.  Don't know why they couldn't deliver, however, Best Buy delivered the same LG set for less money in 3 days after purchase.  Way to step up.  

Amazon  just going to say this... if your normal channels don't work, try Amazon.  We ordered lighting, and a few items others said were backordered and usually in 1 to 2 days.  

As for service providers:

O'Connell Energy Solutions LLC provided all of the electrical upgrades along with our friends from Home Depot providing all of the components. 

Mitchell Paint It provided all the exterior painting, the interior touch ups, and trim work.  These guys show up in force and get the job done efficiently, professionally, and cost effectively.  There is no more professional company for quality and accuracy in the industry today.  

Aim Empire Inc provided all of the bath tile work on walls and floor, along with all of the baseboards and flooring throughout the home.  This is by far the best tile guy we have ever worked with and his vision, recommendations, and talent far exceeded any expections.  Call Jerry Khemchand at 407-927-5757 today for any and all of your flooring and tile needs. 

Brandon Miller provided all of the plumbing installation and connection of all the faucets, toilets, vanities, and of course showed up and performed all duties.  Highly recommend him as well and you can reach him at 407-346-3327.

Bobby Paulich HVAC provided the complete removal and installation of the brand new AC system and some duct work repairs and adjustments that were needed.  Highly recommended for all of your A/C needs.  


This team of vendors along with the incredible dedication of the Florida Tolbert Team of Kevin B Tolbert, Christine F Goolsby Tolbert, and James Moore are so proud to present this amazing home to it's new forever family this Wednesday December 8, 2023 and we look forward to sharing our next story with the next family that needs their home sold for top dollar in the Orlando market.


Thank you to Ms. Karen Michola for entrusting our team to bring our dream to life and allow you to keep your money in your hands instead of wholesaling this home.

Merry Christmas to you and your family and good luck in the next chapter of your life.
