Get to know LaShawn Norden
A Seminole County resident for more than 35 years, I can and do share my knowledge of each city and the neighborhoods within those cities with both Buyers and Sellers. Being a Central Florida Native, I spent my early childhood years as a resident of Orlando, Longwood, Lake Mary, Maitland and Altamonte Springs.
When I was 10, my family moved to the city of Lake Mary, Florida where I went to school at Lake Mary Elementary, Lakeview Middle (which is now Millenium Middle School) and Lake Mary High School. After graduating from high school in the late 80's, I worked at the Central Florida YMCA in Lake Mary and for the Seminole County Regional Chamber of Commerce before starting my real estate career in 2002.
As the Marketing Director for the YMCA and a Sales Consultant for the Chamber, I learned valuable methods of advertising and developed many beneficial relationships with area business owners and individual homeowners...all of which have been the reason for my growing success in Real Estate.
It is my belief that Buyers and Sellers alike deserve an agent who will listen to their needs, understands and explains the process and is more concerned about building a relationship than in getting a sale. I pride myself on my response time, communcation skills and knowledge of the Central Florida marketplace and look forward to continuing to build lasting relationships for the next 25+ years!
Fortunately, for the last nine+ years, I have been ranked in the top 5% of agents in the Orlando marketplace and wish to continue to offer exceptional service to many more over the course of my career.My husband, Rick has more than 10 years of residential construction experience, Rick brings a wealth of knowledge to Priority One Homes Team. Rick provides pre-and-post purchase guidance on potential inspection pitfalls and assists clients with referrals to qualified and experienced vendors who are able to remedy issues before they become the source of contract failure.
Rick is the active owner of Priority One Homes, LLC, and is now the Team’s “go to guy” for reputable resources who offer needed services such as painting, roof replacement, bathroom and kitchen remodeling, flooring replacement and more. Rick’s years of construction experience and his easy-going nature are a true asset to the Team! As you can imagine, we talk a lot about homes and real estate in our household!
We have four children: RJ, Nickolas, Konnor and Elvis (our Puggle)! We live in a Cambridge Home that my husband built in a small Sanford community in Seminole County near Lake Mary and Winter Springs.I am dedicated to my family and my clients and truly enjoy being an advisor to those I work with! I hope to have the opportunity one day to add you to my list of clients and friends as I want to be the only "Central Florida Native You'll Need!"

I have consciously made efforts to extend my knowledge and experience to all clients, regardless of their price range or level of experience. I have successfully represented first-time homebuyers as well as clients selling or buying million dollar homes and every price range in between!
Because I have lived and worked in Seminole County and Orange County for more than 35 years, the areas I feel can best service clients are:
Lake Mary, Longwood, Sanford, Winter Springs, Altamonte Springs, Casselberry, Fern Park, Oviedo, College Park, Winter Park, Windermere, Winter Garden, Ocoee, Orlando and Apopka...all of which are in Central Florida!Because I have school-aged children also, I particularily enjoy working with families with children. I am very knowledgable about the area schools, recreation opportunities, YMCA locations and other interests that families might have and can relate to those who have similar interests.Although there are many directions one can take when having a real estate license, my areas of expertise are: Buyer representation & negotiation with new home construction; Buyer and Seller representation with their home, condo or townhome sale or purchase; Buyers and Seller representation with their luxury home & estate sale or purchase and Buyer representation for those seeking investment opportunities in the residential market. For those interested in commerical property, property management, short and long term rentals, leasing, vacation homes and time share, I do not feel that I am the best agent to service your needs...but I am happy to refer you to an experienced and effective agent who does specialize in those areas.
