How Can South Lake Living Help You?

Moving is hard.
And regardless of where you fall in that process—thinking about it, researching online, buying a new home, or selling your current one—you’ve come to the right place.

It can be overwhelming to piece together all the facts about an area. And THEN, try to make a judgment on what it would be like to live there.

That’s why at South Lake Living we’re always working to give you the most up-to-date information on the details that matter.

We do this through fantastic video footage—painting a true-to-life visual story about the 5 cities that make up Florida’s South Lake area. Plus we cover a few other great Orlando suburbs that we believe provide the exceptional lifestyle many families crave.

Additionally, we create helpful articles that give you all the tips, tactics, and current information you need to make the best decisions and point you toward a smooth transition.

Are you curious about available properties? We’ve got you covered.

Finally, if you’re ready to find that dream home OR sell an existing home, our very own Jamie Bevelacqua—South Lake Living’s host and realtor—is prepared with the expertise you need to get the results you want.

We often see the most beautiful sunsets here in South Lake County Florida. We live in paradise.

Jamie was wonderful to work with during our home buying process! We are new to the area, and she was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in guiding us towards the right home at the right price. We had a quick and easy close, and are very excited about our new home. - Laura A.
Jamie was able to negotiate and save us not only 25k from the sellers asking price, she also negotiated a flooring allowance, new roof, and new air conditioner. When we do decide to sell we will certainly use Jamie so she can negotiate the best deal for us again. - Janet C.
Thank you for taking care of all the details for the sale of my home. The process felt a bit overwhelming and you explained each step extremely well. You handled all of the details which relieved our stress level completely. Again, thank you! - Mary M.
When my wife and I decided to move from NC to Clermont, we weren’t sure where to even start. You made the process so easy for us. From recommending lenders, insurance agents, inspectors, and movers.. you were so helpful. You seemed to always be one step a head of the process and heading off any issues at the pass. - Ron C.
Jamie is PHENOMENAL. My fiancé and I were relocating to the Orlando area and she was referred to me by a friend. She is an absolute angel! We found our house and closed within 35 days. She is so knowledgeable, caring, and truly goes above and beyond for her clients. Our lender was a headache to work with, but Jamie helped guide us through the process and helped us immensely. Working with her was the BEST decision we could have made! - Leslie P
"Jamie was exceptional to work with. She took great care to make sure everything about our listing was perfect. She sold our house in record time. I would highly recommend her for the sale of your next home. We will use her again!" -Kellerc
