We chose Sanford as the location for the debut of our new real estate show Orlandology. Since, just like my blog, this episode of the show is all about Sanford, I decided to share the video and show descriptions here with all of you. The show will give you a really great snapshot of life in our little town as well as neighborhood and housing options. I am sure you will recognize most of the locations we covered in the video.

Feel free to share the video with all your friends and family. Let’s show the world how special Sanford is!

At this point I also want to thank everyone who participated in the show and volunteered to be interviewed by us. You all did so great and we want to thank you for supporting our fun little project!

So, what is “Orlandology”? Let me show you the official show description…

Jose and Claudia - Sanford FL RealtorsOrlandology [awr-lan-daw-luh-jee]


1. The study of Orlando and its neighborhoods including real estate and lifestyle.

Jose and Claudia (that’s my husband and me) are Realtors in Orlando. Their goal on this show is to introduce you to all the beautiful neighborhoods and towns in and around Orlando. While there, they’ll also take a peek inside some homes (single family, town home/condo and luxury homes) to give you an even better idea of the Orlando lifestyle. As locals invite the Realtor couple into their homes they chat about the top reasons to live in each particular neighborhood as well as all the fun things to do. Get to know the real Orlando and experience it through the eyes of the locals! Don’t worry, you won’t be quizzed at the end of each show – you’ll just get closer to earning your degree in Orlandology and becoming an Orlandologist yourself‚Ķ

More info about Orlando Real Estate and the neighborhoods of Orlando can be found at http://therealestators.com as well as http://realestatewall.com

Interview with Theo Hollerbach SanfordOf course, it was a no brainer to pick Sanford and its neighborhoods as location for our pilot episode. After all, we live in Sanford ourselves and I LOVE Sanford (as is apparent on my blog). The show was shot in August 2012. I know! It took a while to get it all done and edited and we had to re-shoot some segments, the last one actually just last December. We hope we did a good job and can keep your interest through those 26 minutes ūüėČ

To make it easier for the audience we have ¬†also “chopped up” the show into 5 mini webisodes and we will be “airing” a new webisode over at TheRealEstators.com¬†every Wednesday at noon starting March 6th (until April 3rd). For now, I want to show you the trailer to give you a sneak peek of what’s to come. So lean back and relax, here comes Sanford FL…
