We first met Janette and Howard at a property exhibition in the UK in October 2003. They gave us some very sound advice that made us reconsider our plans over the way in which were to buy our property.
After meeting them again at their UK base, they helped us arrange a viewing holiday in Florida and provided a licensed Realtor to show us around various developments in the Orlando area.
All of the advantages and disadvantages of the different properties and subdivisions were explained and we finally chose a villa from a plan on a new development.
Again, the advice given to us was slightly different from what we thought we wanted, but after over 3 years of successful rentals, we are happy to confirm that all the advice given to us throughout the buying process was excellent.
Of course buying a home is always a daunting process and even more so when that home is thousands of miles away, but we are certainly very pleased that we chose Janette and Howard to help us through the process and explain the pitfalls of buying a property in the USA.
Their property management company in Florida, Homes of America, has looked after our villa from the beginning and we have always received very positive comments from our guests about the cleanliness and appearance of our villa.
We have no hesitation in recommending Homes of America to anyone considering buying a home in Florida.

I just wanted to let you know that the guests we have in at the moment have already e-mailed us .......on Saturday actually, just after they arrived........and their words were ....'It's just PERFECT!!'............as you can imagine we are really thrilled about that especially as she is an interior designer herself! Even though we thought everywhere looked great, it's still a worry that your guests will feel the same.....so there we are......success!!
Thanks again for all your help in this Kylie, take care & we'll speak soon.

We have known the owners and staff of the company for 4 years. We purchased our villa through them and have continued to use their Management Company to look after our villa for short term rental.
We have found their professionalism, honesty and dependability to be of invaluable help to us in the running of our Florida villa.
Kylie Thorne, who is a Director of the Company and is responsible for Managing our home, has always afforded us 100% commitment, Her helpful, cheerful and practical approach, along with her extensive business knowledge has been of the up most help to us as home owners and also to our guests who have rented our villa.
HOA Management Company is a totally reliable management company and we would have no hesitation what so ever in recommending their services.

We cannot speak highly enough about Homes of America. They helped us buy our home in Florida and now manage it for us too. We are so pleased that we chose them and wouldn’t go anywhere else should we decide to buy another property!
From the first point of contact with Jan and Howard, they were genuinely helpful and attentive. They took us around the local building developments and knew the site sales staff and it was clearly evident that there was mutual two way respect between everyone. They knew the area well and were able to explain to us the differences in the area, the quality of builder and the type of finish that was needed to make our home attractive to renters as well as ourselves.
This was our first venture into property ownership abroad and undoubtedly Jan and Howard made it far less stressful than it could be in the UK! They know the market, what needs to be done and when. Anyone buying through them can do so in the knowledge that they are in good hands. They are the ultimate professionals.
Jan and Howard’s daughter Kylie runs the Management side of the business and also manages our home for us, making sure it is ready for renters and ensuring it looks its best. Like Jan and Howard, Kylie has a good knowledge of what works, and what doesn’t, and is also fantastic at making the home look welcoming to guests.
Without Kylie we would feel lost. It feels like we have a third owner in the way that Kylie looks after our home – she makes a hard job seem very easy with her commitment and dedication to both us and our renters. Kylie, like Jan and Howard, is supported by a team of first class colleagues too so you know that if there is ever a question or problem, it will be dealt with.
We cannot thank Jan, Howard, Kylie and their colleagues enough for their help over the past two years.

Homes of America have been fantastic throughout every stage of our property purchase in Orlando. They made us feel comfortable and were always available to provide sound advice and support, from our initial meetings with them right through to the completion of our home.
Since completing our purchase last year, Homes of America's management services have been excellent, delivering a keen eye for detail and that added personal touch. Their staff have ensured our villa is well looked after and beautifully presented, something which is very much appreciated by our guests.

We bought our US home through Homes of America Realty from plan in February 2004. They showed professionalism in this as we would expect but furthermore we felt that we were in good hands in our first venture abroad. They guided us through the process until closing in 2005.
Homes of America Management have been our Management Company from the outset. In that time we have found the management team to be efficient and friendly. Our home has been well looked after (as have the guests) and we have and continue to have complete confidence in their services.
We really consider ourselves lucky to have such a wonderful and trustworthy Management Company.
