John Lazenby

Dedicated, Professional, Trustworthy. John Lazenby has spent over 25 years developing those attributes and other skills that he uses in his day-to-day work as a Realtor®. He is familiar with the entire process of real estate development, home building, community management and home sales. He stays in touch with the market, keeping up with trends and prospects for development and sales. He has learned how to truly hear what developers, builders and customers are saying to better help them find success with their plans, projects, sales and purchases.

Lazenby is particularly proud of his reputation as a Realtor who is with his clients from beginning to end, not just for the first day and the last day. Indeed, he works closely with his buyers every step of the way, even after their homes are completed and closed.

John has sold properties for developers of some of the most prestigious communities in Windermere and Southwest Orlando. He continues to enjoy working with those developers and with clients who have come back to him when they are ready to buy another home — whether they are moving up or downsizing. Those buyers trust John to provide excellent service. Total satisfaction for all those involved in a real estate transaction is his primary objective. He is well known for his ability to satisfy his customers — whether they are developers, builders, sellers or buyers.

He has earned the Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) and the Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS) designations. In November 2008 he was inducted into the Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council (REBAC) Hall of Fame at the National Association of Realtors annual convention.

He serves as Chairman of the Grievance Committee and as a member of the Strategic Planning Committee of ORRA. In 2008, John was appointed to the Board of Directors of the Florida Realtors, a professional organization which represents and governs over 110,000 Realtors in the state of Florida, and has served as a Director ever since. In 2009 the Orlando Regional Realtor Association gave John their Pillar of the Community Award in recognition of his volunteer service to the community.
