Guy Shipley

Broker/Owner, Realtor®

Upon bringing his family on vacation to Florida in 1983, Guy and his wife intuitively knew that Florida was their destiny. They went home to Illinois, sold their current residence, and returned to the sunshine state that very year. He got his residential builder license in 1985 and founded a furniture & interior design firm in 1993. After 17 successful years he turned his attention to real estate in 2009 where his passion for the industry reigns.

“As an avid boater, I am fortunate to live the past eighteen amazing years on the Harris Chain of Lakes in Central Florida where a lakefront lifestyle is enjoyed year around. My passion for water activities is part of my DNA which is why I am so enthusiastic about waterfront real estate. Florida’s Lakes are as unique as is its Real Estate and that is why it is so important to fully understand the market for Waterfront Properties as well as I do.”

Whether you are a seasoned Floridian or currently discovering Florida and its waterways for the first time, Guy’s wealth of knowledge within the industry gives him the competence necessary to help his customers navigate the process. He understands that buying or selling a home is one of the most important and emotional decisions in a person’s life.

Over the years Guy has developed a business philosophy that provides his customers with excellent individualized service and turns them into repeat clients with lasting relationships. Guy’s deep understanding and dedication to his clients create a mutual loyalty and respect that lasts a lifetime.

In Guys free time you can usually find him on the water sharing a lake perspective tour with family/friends/customers. You may even run into him at one of the quaint lakefront towns, with their year around festivals & events or sitting on his dock, sipping a glass of wine during a fabulous sunset.

To better serve buyers, we affiliate ourselves with a number of hand-picked Realtors® that have intimate knowledge of their lakefront neighborhoods. Most of them live on a lake themselves and all are trained & certified as Premier Lakefront Specialists. This ensures that each client receives an impeccable level of service from a local agent with specific lakefront knowledge.
