Client Testimonials - Promises Delivered!
Congratulations!We're looking forward to getting down to Ocala! We REALLY appreciate the great service you guys all gave us from our initial tour with Rob to Chris taking us around again to your taking pictures of the property for us.
We've bought and sold a lot of real estate over the years but rate this transaction as tops in terms of ease. That's a strong statement especially given that it was over 2,900 miles!
Thanks again, Jeff
A big thank you!To all of you for your help with my real estate purchase!!! You were all fantastic with following up on things for me and make sure things went smoothly. Looking forward to seeing you when I head back to Florida.
Wonderful Job!Your team has done a wonderful job for me, and I really appreciate it. I'm happy to recommend Ocala Horse Properties to anyone looking for a realtor. Thanks again!
Chris and RobWe're sending a recommendation letter, and yes, we believe every word to be absolutely true.
Our thoughts, however, go beyond the business relationship as Ann and I consider both of you friends, and wish the best for you. We look forward to seeing you in and around Ocala for years to come.
We cannot thank you enough for the effort you invested in us. We are sincerely indebted to you, and thankful for you. If there is anything we can ever do for either one of you, business or personal, please do not hesitate to call us.
Above and BeyondWe bought our Ocala property via Chris and Rob a year and a half ago, and cannot express enough how thrilled we were with their dedication and professionalism to our satisfaction. Obviously buying the right farm for us was a very big decision, as not only is it our home, but our business; so we were very cautious about our decision. The Desinos took our requirements into consideration and did their utmost to find us the perfect location, then made sure the sale went through without a hitch. That alone would have been enough to make us happy; but the Desino's went above and beyond their job to help us find the right contractors that would help us complete our needs. They then stood behind their recommendations, and ensured that we were happy with everyone involved even though it clearly wasn't their problem to deal with.
If and when we ever buy another property, I can guarantee it will be with the assistance of the Desinos and I would highly recomend them to anyone looking to either buy or sell their Ocala property, as I cannot believe you would find anyone better or more helpful.

Thank you guys!
We’re looking forward to working with you all again in the future and would definitely refer prospective buyers and sellers to you. Ocala Horse Properties has its finger on the pulse of the horse farm market, that’s for sure, and our friends and clients will certainly appreciate the one-stop shopping and personal service!
Note: This letter was written as a letter to the editor of Ocala Magazine in April of 2007.
Raving Fans of Rob & ChrisThank you for helping me buy the farm of my dreams. I am enjoying the land, the lifestyle and the freedom of living in the country. What a nice change from the office! You both are highly professional; you understand horse people; you know the market and you help with all aspects of buying and selling farms. I know to this day if I had a problem or a question you both would still be there to help me. For that I am grateful.
My husband and I love the magazine (Ocala Magazine) and based on the article "Double Agents" and their website, we made an appointment with Chris and Rob Desino. We spent four days with the twins and as a result of their expertise, we purchased 10 acres in Paradise Farms.
Chris and Rob Desino are the best ambassadors of the Ocala Equine community anyone could hope for. We are looking forward to living in the are in the coming years, and thank you for getting it all started.

I just wanted to thank you once again for helping me to find my dream property. As an out-of-town buyer looking for a place to unwind occasionally from the stress of life, I had imagined it might be yet another stressful event, finding and purchasing an Ocala horse property. It was far from stressful and, honestly, was quick, painless and even fun! I recall the weekend I came to Ocala to look at the properties you had chosen as meeting my “desires list,” and I distinctly remember Chris telling me he thought the last one on our tour list was going to be “the one.” Oh my gosh, were you right! The minute we pulled into the drive, it hit me that this was the picture of my dream property… the perfect place for me! From that point, the transaction remained flawless (and easy for me), with the contract coming together quickly, the required inspections/survey, etc. being completed rapidly (thank you for taking care of all this while I was at home in Dallas) and we were actually ready to close early! Amazing! So thank you Chris and Rob, you are the best! I look forward to seeing you on my next trip to my new home in Ocala!

“The entire selling experience with Rob and Chris was simply exceptional. Their collective market knowledge of properties sold or currently listed, as well their firsthand knowledge of potential buyers in the marketplace, was terrific and provided us the insight to price our property appropriately. For us, they made the selling process wonderfully simple. It took just a few weeks to show the property several times and get it into contract. They know the Ocala horse-property market far better than any other Realtor we’ve come across. We were also comforted by the fact they competitively ride horses, live on a farm and appreciate the finer points of well-planned and -maintained horse properties, which they can then effectively convey to potential buyers.
They also did a superb job of handling the selling process post contract signing. There are always lots of little steps in a sale and they made the process incredibly easy for us. They completely handled the on-site meetings with inspectors, appraisers and the like. We were also kept very well informed along the way, something we find extremely important. They represented our interests very ably throughout the entire process for that we thank them. Rob and Chris exuded confidence and as a result of that and their professionalism, the sale program from listing to closing was very low stress. We couldn’t have been more happy with their work. We would absolutely use them again.”

One day last summer, Lisa and I met with Chris on our back porch. We talked about farms, markets, horses and the Desinos. Impressed, but cautious, we gave Chris the listing. We were hopeful, but then again we read the news. Ten days later we had a signed contract. Two weeks later, Rob had completed all inspections, appraisals and releases. We have bought, built and sold more than a few homes and farms and in fact I have been in the building industry for more than 30 years. Rob and Chris are bright, well spoken and did all the right things to make our selling experience the best. In fact, in about nine months, we would like to have Rob and Chris over to our back porch again.
HAVING BOUGHT AND SOLD MANY PROPERTIES OVER THE PAST TEN YEARS, WE FEEL THAT OUR ASSOCIATION WITH ROB AND CHRIS DESINO HAS BEEN REMARKABLE IN BOTH OUR PURCHASES AND SALES. THEIR PROFESSIONALISM, AS WELL AS THOUGHTFULNESS, HAS ALWAYS BEEN PARAMOUNT IN ALL OUR BUYING AND SELLING DECISIONS.
MOREOVER, IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT THEIR ADVERTISING PROGRAM IS UNPARALLELED AND REACHES BUYERS AND SELLERS ACROSS OUR COUNTRY AS WELL AS THE GLOBE. THIS WE KNOW AND HAVE BENEFITTED FROM FIRSTHAND!

Rob and Chris,We wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your services when we listed and sold our Ocala horse farm. Your extensive advertising definitely impacted the number of potential buyers who looked at our farm. We are still amazed at the number of times our property was shown.
We truly believe that your involvement with the hunter/jumper and 3-day eventing communities, as well as the rest of the horse industry, was an extremely positive force in generating interest. Your communication after each showing was helpful. We knew fairly quickly how the showing went, and what, if any, the concerns were. We do not hesitate to recommend your services to potential buyers or sellers. You definitely know the horse property market in beautiful Ocala.
