Meet Betsy Pepine, MBA
Broker/Owner of Pepine Realty
As a single mother of two, in the midst of the real estate recession, Betsy founded Pepine Realty in the fall of 2010. Betsy wanted creative license to market herself and services and desired more control of the systems used to facilitate the real estate transaction. With no expressed interest in building a company, Betsy, a newly-hired marketing assistant, and her two young daughters worked to service her customers and build a brand of excellence in the community.
Working quietly from her home for several years, Betsy built an independent brokerage that quickly became one of the top in the county. Other Realtors took notice and asked to join her, and before long, Pepine Realty was a full-fledged company working out of “offices” (aka bedrooms) inside Betsy’s house. Recognizing the need to either “go big or go home,” Betsy decided to “go big” with a vision of building a company of professional full-time real estate agents that raised the bar in marketing, customer service, and philanthropy.
Pepine Realty moved out of Betsy’s home into the Metrocorp Office Park in 2015. Since then, we have opened offices in Orlando, Ocala, and St. Augustine and have transacted real estate throughout the state of Florida. We have also expanded our breadth of services offering property management, leasing, commercial development & sales, and title. We are active in the communities in which we reside. In total, we have volunteered over 2,230 service hours and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars in sponsorships and charitable contributions.
Our mission is to improve and empower the lives of others…one person, one family, one business, one community at a time. Our values are integrity, accountability, excellence, family, impact, fun, balance, and growth.
What People Are Saying
We have been working with Pepine Realty and they are amazing. They helped my mother-in-law sell after she moved to another state, and were very knowledgeable. They brought us the paperwork and looked at the house, they were very patient with questions, helped us accomplish the posting and sale remotely, and even helped us find an EXCELLENT cleaner for the house once it was empty so we could prepare it for sale. The pictures they took were fantastic, and they had immediate showings and an offer within a couple days of posting! I highly recommend this business.
Pepine Realty is amazing! Betsy Pepine and her team were great helping us list and sell our house. They are very friendly and professional, and respond quickly to text or email. They made selling our home as stress-free as possible.
I worked with Pepine Realty buying and selling my home. The company itself was professional, did not spam me with messages, and maintained a user friendly listing filter. I had a very positive experience with my realtor, Laura Javidi. She communicated extremely well, prompt, friendly, and empathetic. I highly recommend Pepine Realty..
