After nearly a decade of Real Estate experience with Oxford Land Company Robbie decided to venture out on his own after eight straight years of being the company’s top sales agent. Starting in Real Estate in 2005 he wondered why everyone wasn’t in the RE business, but in subsequent years he realized quickly with the economic collapse and downturn of the economy. However, it was during that time that not only did he learn how volatile the market place was, but also how to be volatile as an agent, whereas many agents just left the business. Gone were days of simply putting a sign in the yard and waiting for a phone call. The RE business changed overnight and if you weren’t willing to change as an agent then you were obsolete. To stay afloat he learned all facets of the business, not just one sector.
He's successfully brokered residential, commercial, industrial, vacant land, bank owned, short sales, property management, residential and commercial leases within the tens of millions of dollars. “I would suggest that in larger market places an agent can be successful in just one area of Real Estate, but within a smaller county you must be diversified to be successful.” Of course, with the growth of The Villages and the impact of it upon Lake, Sumter, and Marion counties he realizes that is swiftly changing.” With his abundance of knowledge in all facets of Real Estate he is looking forward to teaching, training, and raising up new agents. Though he is now in the position of a Broker/Owner he is still actively listing and selling properties full-time. Call or email him today to set up an appointment.

What People Are Saying About Robbie...
We would like to thank and commend Robbie for the terrific service he provided in selling our land. Since he made sure the complete listing information appeared in numerous online sites, there was a lot of interest and positive feedback. A good offer was quickly made, negotiated and accepted. But as often happens, they were unable to consumate the deal. He immediately secured a second buyer who made an even better cash offer and closed within 3 days. We really appreciate the time and effort he invested to make this transaction successful. I will certainly recommend him to friends and family interested in local real estate.
Making the decision to buy a home was not an easy task for me. While I always knew I would work with Flamingo RE, I never understood the process and all that entails. Working with Renee Lackey made my buying a home very easy. Any questions I had, any problem that occurred she handled with grace, and anytime I needed help making a decision she was there. As a newly single mom she understood my concerns and made this hard transition easy. When I did find the home I wanted she was my advocate and stood firm with every detail of the buying process. Flamingo RE was always professional and always there for anything. I would recommend them to everyone.
Thank you to Robbie Shoemaker for helping me find the very best person to help me with my journey in finding a home. Thank you Renee Lackey for being there for me and my family to make a hard transition easy.

We wanted to move to Florida after residing in Califorina for years. Robbie was recommended by relatives who had worked with him for their real estate needs in the past. After locating an area that we liked, Robbie met my wife (while I stayed in California) and took her to numerous locations. Donna felt very comfortable being with him, as he was patient and extremely accommodating to her needs, likes and dislikes. They spent long days looking at house after house and found the perfect location. They had to move fast due to the market at the time (which caused a lot of pressure) and our offer was excepted.
Robbie and his assitant Gidget then took the reins for us and handled all the necessary steps involved in the purchase, as Donna had to return to California. Gidget kept us posted via emails and phone calls and clearly explained all of the details involved. They both went above and beyond what one would expect from a real estate office.
Upon completing the purchase, Robbie and Gidget actually made sure our new home was secure, clean and safe, as we still had to make the move. Upon our arrival very late at night, we could not have been more pleased and surprised! We had a beautiful door mat at the front door and a very nice card on a counter top.
I can not say enough how very pleased and grateful my wife and I are to have had Flamingo Real Estate handle our affairs with our home purchase. We will always keep in contact with them, as they really made us feel like family.
Robbie, can’t thank you enough for being so nice.
Most likely the best group of real estate professionals in Central Florida. Their experience and great ability to network stands out above the rest.
