Ocala Horse Properties - 2023 Summer Farm Portfolio

CHRIS AND ROB DESINO As the principles of Ocala Horse Properties, the brothers are from Rochester, New York. Their drive and determination showed early on as the twins were WHY WE’RE THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS top performers in every sport they played. But it was competitive rowing where they first made a mark on the national scene. While attending Hobart College, they were two-time National Collegiate Champions. After graduation, the brothers moved to Philadelphia where they trained and competed for the US National & World Championship Team. Prior to the 2000 Olympics, Rob suffered an unfortunate career ending injury and they turned their focus to another passion — restaurants. Rob and Chris created a chain of very successful restaurants throughout Rochester, Buffalo and Syracuse, New York, where they honed their exemplary customer service skills. They believe that restaurants were the best training for having an extreme focus on keeping guests happy. After selling their restaurants, they felt as if the horse farm real estate business was the next natural step and chose Ocala because they both had wintered here with their horses. Chris also spearheads the design and build part of their business. Over the last several years, they have developed, built and renovated some of the most exquisite farms sold in all of Marion County during that time. They also offer their guidance to their clients on the ins and outs of building and renovating farms to today’s standards. OCALA HORSE PROPERTIES was formed in 2007 by twin brothers Chris and Rob Desino. In 2011, Matt Varney joined the team.
