"We have been renting our Florida property with Pete Howlett since September, 2011 and can honestly say we never had a moment’s trouble or worry. Any issue that arose with the house was dealt with promptly and efficiently.
Pete is in constant communication and has always secured first rate tenants for us. As we live in Ireland the services of an honest, reliable, and efficient property manager is essential for worry free ownership and that is exactly what we have with Pete Howlett and his staff.
As property owners we would recommend Pete and his company in a heartbeat and without hesitation. Pete is a gentleman to deal with and we would be delighted to talk in person with anyone who is considering using his services."

"I have been with Pete Howlett for almost 10 years now, after having a bad experience with another manager. During this time, I have found him and his staff to be of the highest possible standard. They are competent, efficient and always give good advice on a consistent basis. The best thing I can say is that I hardly ever even think about my house, such is the confidence I have in them. My email address is available through Pete, if you would like further testimony."
- Mike Marlor | Alicante, Spain
"I have been dealing with ORS for close on 8 yrs now. I had previously had three different management company's over a five year period. Each of the previous companies had weaknesses, one of them actually lied about who was letting my property and what was going on there, I even had to advise them of situations and I'm UK based, hence the move to ORS.
Dealing with Pete and his staff is an absolute breeze in comparison. They are professional in every way, they keep on top of all the legal documentation and requirements, keep me in the loop with what's necessary and when and are pro-active in finding new tenants as and when the need arrives. My current tenants have been in the property for close on three years now, which speaks volumes for their ability to also look after the tenant’s interests.
Whenever I am stateside, we get together and take a look around the property, have a chat with the tenants and make sure they are happy with everything.
I would highly recommend ORS and have given Pete permission to have any interested party to contact me directly should they wish to do so."
- Tony Jones | Cheshire, England

"I am a resident of the Republic of Ireland. Currently I own two properties in Orlando. In respect to one property which is located in a residential area of Independence, upon acquiring the property I placed it with Orlando Realty Solutions for rental. Within a short period of time it was rented to very good tenants at a very acceptable rent.
In the case of the second property in Vista Cay, it was a short term rental with specific attractions. I placed it with a company who specialise in that area and furnished the property to their specification. Over a twelve month period the income received was not sufficient to pay the management company fees thus leaving bills for utilities etc. I placed the property with ORS for long term rental. Within one week of so doing there was a choice of three potential suitable tenants willing to pay an acceptable rent.
I have a number of properties in various locations in Europe, which I rent through agents. Consequently, I have considerable experience in dealing with both good and not so good agents. Pete Howlett and his team rank among the best."
- Larry Kiernan | Mullingar, Ireland
"Orlando Realty Solutions has been managing our Davenport villas on a long-term rental basis for the last 5 years and we have found them to be extremely professional, very approachable, diligent and full of enthusiasm in securing long-term tenants.

- Derek & Eileen Scovell | Merseyside, England
"Given the current market conditions both here in the UK and in the US, your company has consistently rented our home to quality tenants who have never failed to pay their rent on time and who have looked after our Highlands Reserve and our Bella Trae properties like their own. The fact that we are 3000 miles away is of little consequence as we feel confident that our home is in safe hands.
We would have no hesitation what-so-ever recommending Orlando Realty Solutions to any prospective client whether they are renters themselves, renting their own home or selling.
We look forward to a long working relationship."

"When I wanted to change from vacation to annual rental, Orlando Realty Solutions were recommended to me by a colleague at work. I finally moved management of my Sandy Ridge villa over to Pete and his team after meeting him at the property last summer. I also contacted existing customers beforehand and received only positive responses.
A long-term tenant was found very quickly, rental payment has been very prompt and any problems / enquiries dealt with immediately. I have no hesitation in recommending ORS as a management company & am happy to reply to emails from prospective clients."

"I would like to say that we found Peter from the internet as we live in England. Having had a condo in Kissimmee for 10 years, we originally rented it to people on vacation and had family holidays there when the kids were younger, but as the credit crunch began and the number of short term rentals went down we decided that we would rent our unit on a long term basis and treat it more as an investment rather than a holiday home.
Having made a trip from England we met Peter at our Sweetwater Club Condo and discussed the best way forward to go about renting the unit. We decided on a monthly rental and we came back to the UK keeping in touch on a weekly basis.
Peter marketed the Condo and we promptly got suitable tenants at the price we wanted.
Our unit is now rented out on a 12 month contract and we are now half way through the contract. Hopefully after these 12 months the tenants may renew again.
Peter has been very professional and has stuck to his word and looked after us."
- Steve and Wendy Calvert | Cheshire, England
