My name is Lance Whipple and I help first-time homebuyers, international investors, “active adults” and snowbirds buy and sell homes in Champions Gate, Davenport, Clermont, and Kissimmee Florida. It’s the lifestyle, weather, safety and security of the Disney area that attracted my family here after I retired from the United States Air Force as a Lieutenant Colonel. In 2011 I entered the real estate business in the Four Corners market at its economic bottom and since then I have increased my knowledge and skill by annually improving production and earning certifications and designations such as the Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS), At Home With Diversity (AHWD), Military Relocation Professional (MRP), New Home Co-Broker (NHCB) and Real Estate Digital Marketer (REDM). Over 60% of my transactions now come from referrals and I believe that speaks well for my approach and service. I truly see helping buyers and sellers with difficult decisions and likely the largest financial transaction of their lives as a worthy service. Helping my customers buy a home is a natural extension of my military service--directly related to protecting and assuring the American Dream. Read more here.

I had indirectly worked with Lance on another transaction and I didn't hesitate to contact him when I was ready to purchase. His knowledge of the area, the Florida laws/market and mortgage process was invaluable. Not only is Lance extremely knowledgeable but he is super responsive, trustworthy, and patient and helps explain each step of the process. Lance juggled a few obstacles including a seller that signed a solar contract, and an inspection that revealed more issues than expected but he explained everything along the way and presented options. His knowledge, attention to detail and ability to listen and explain this complex process is amazing and I could not be happier.
Lance helped us buy our first home at a time when my wife and I were expecting our first baby. He was honestly the best part of the home-buying process. He is incredibly responsive, which made him very easy to work with. As an attorney, I by nature wanted to understand nearly every detail of the deal, and he thoroughly answered every one of my questions at every stage of the process. He had impressive knowledge of the local area and of the market value of homes. For example, when my wife and I were ready to make our initial offer on our home, he advised us that what we planned to bid was higher than necessary and so he wound up saving us thousands as a result. I felt like we were very demanding clients, yet somehow Lance managed to exceed our expectations every step of the way. Lance came as advertised; he's a go-getter and an incredible advocate for his clients.
Lance helped us close on a home in 21 days. As a retired military officer I had high expectations for the home buying process in central Florida. Lance helped us locate financing, select a title company, get through the inspection process and utilizing a VA loan meeting our tight deadlines. Lance is bilingual and speaks Spanish fluently which helped us greatly as my wife's first language is Spanish. His local knowledge ensured that we were well informed throughout the purchase process. His extensive understanding of FRPTA provided me the confidence to purchase my home from a foreign investor. He also helped with permit concerns which guaranteed we would have no surprises down the road with our purchase. Lance conducted a market analysis that was a spot on to the value of the home and the appraisal actually was higher than his estimate. If you are moving to central Florida this realtor is the best in the business and if you are a veteran you would be in safe hands working with Lance, who is a retired Air Force Officer, who will look out for your best interest and help you find the home you are looking for. Thank you Lance Whipple for helping us purchase our new home.
Lance Whipple has been our Realtor for the purchase of three vacation properties in the central Florida area. There are many reasons why we always choose to work only with Lance. First, he is very professional, respectful, trustworthy and incredibly knowledgeable in the local market. One thing we really appreciated is that he is very diligent moving things along with the urgency and at the pace needed. He was always on time, very responsive and was always available when needed, either at the moment or very shortly thereafter. He offered valuable guidance, kept us updated at all times, and helped us navigate through each step of the entire process. He also created a purchase contract that was beneficial to us and protected us as buyers, while being also reasonable and fair to all the parties involved.
Despite all this, I think what we appreciated most was his personal attention, and friendly and positive attitude. Although we knew he had many other clients, he always made us feel like we were the only ones. We highly recommend Lance.
I started working with Lance 18 months ago when we decided to move our offices to Florida. We wanted a home to base the offices that also allow us a place to stay. We rented for a year and then went on to buy a new home all through Lance. We gave Lance the basic description and he showed us homes that met our objective. He supported us in the rental and worked in our behalf on the purchase. Have a business owned home adds to HOA requirements and he worked with both the HOA and US Postal service to get us what we wanted. We are now in our 6-bedroom home in a gated golf community and we love our corporate office. When I come to work with our FL based team I stay in this wonderful home. Thank you Lance!
I have been a Commercial Banker for thirty years. I have been working with Realtors my entire career. When I wanted to engage a Realtor to sell my home I wanted to choose an individual that would take the "bull by the horns" and get the job done correctly the first time. Lance exceeded all of my expectations! Don't trust the sale of your home to any Realtor. Choose Lance!!!
The home buying process is no walk in the park, especially this home. Lances' dedication, professionalism and hard work helped tremendously in getting us to the finish line. He followed through every step and followed up with us even after the sale. A true Realtor and highly, highly recommended! Thanks Lance
Lance is a phenomenal Realtor. We had the pleasure of working with him to purchase our first home. Lance was very understanding with our circumstances and availability to view homes due to my husband's work hours. once we found the perfect home, he walked us through the remaining steps to make it ours! I would HIGHLY recommend Lance as a Realtor to my family and friends, because of him we are now able to make our new house a home! :-)
We were looking for a new home in the Davenport area but did not have much luck with the agents for the home builders we preferred. We stopped in at Lance's office to see if we might find an older home. Lance directed us to a gated community/new construction location nearby. Two days later we were putting a contract on a home in this same community! Lance was with us during all phases of the purchase of our home, including closing 34 days after the purchase process started. He was hands on during the entire process, helping us to deal with everything. I would highly recommend Lance to anyone interested in purchasing a home!
