Pineywoods Realty Reaches New ‘Heights’ of Success in Hillsborough County

Trailblazers in ‘The Heights’ Residential Housing Market since 2013

TAMPA, Fla.--()--Pineywoods Realty, now one of the top 30 realty brokerage firms in Hillsborough County*, has been one of the leaders of the resurgence in ‘The Heights’ district housing market. In 2017, Pineywoods Realty had $89,875,000 in sales across Pinellas, Manatee, Pasco and Hillsborough Counties. In Hillsborough alone, sales topped out at $65,911,000.

“It’s hard to predict where home values will be five to 10 years from now with all of the development happening in and around downtown Tampa, like Armature Works and Water Street,” said Ryan Chamblee, broker at Pineywoods Realty, “but our business continues to grow in the Heights district with the anticipation of what’s coming next.”

Currently, Tampa Heights – located just outside of downtown Tampa near the Riverwalk - is featuring homes priced from the mid-$200s all the way up to $600,000 for a new construction home.

Seminole Heights – located just north of Tampa Heights but still only a few minutes from downtown Tampa and Ybor City – has seen a resurgence with independently-owned bars, shops and restaurants opening in the neighborhood, making it a truly unique community. Pineywoods Realty has been one of the lead real estate brokerage firms in this area with homes selling for up to $500,000.

Pineywoods Realty also recently announced that they broke the 100-agent-mark, a big milestone that is the result of a slow, steady, and patient approach to building their brand, as well as their emphasis on work/life balance — a quick glance over some of some of their agents’ instagrams highlights personal hobbies from skydiving and kiteboarding to photography and family vacations.

Their quarterly networking mixers have become a staple of their brokerage, and attract more than a hundred real estate agents and other industry professionals at each event. The next event will take place on Wednesday, May 9, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Four Green Fields in Curtis Hixon Park. These events are a great opportunity for agents from any brokerage to mingle with other real estate agents, various vendors to the industry, as well as learn more about Pineywoods.

For any agents looking to contribute to the community, Pineywoods Realty will also be collecting boxes of cereal for Feeding Tampa Bay’s Cereal for Summer.
