Meet Ocala’s Real Estate Experts

The team at The Ocala Collective is a lifestyle-driven real estate advisory team of innovative specialists who provide exceptional service and commitment.

When Olivia Perez wanted to make a change from the hustle and bustle of Miami, she was drawn to the Ocala area, where her father was living. Now, she is one of this region’s top selling Realtors and is the head of her own real estate firm, The Ocala Collective. 

“My Dad had been here about 15 years and I wanted somewhere with more of a hometown feel,” she shares. “I started as the lifestyle director at the Ocala Preserve, formerly Trilogy, and after 2 ½ years, I wanted to grow as a professional. I had a great relationship with the sales team, and I got my license and started selling Shea homes. I was the Rookie of the Year and the number two salesperson in my very first year.”

She says it was a wonderful experience selling for the home builder, but she wanted to branch out “across all of Ocala” so she went into general real estate in 2020. 

“It’s been great,” she says with pride and a lilt in her voice. “And it’s not just about selling homes; It’s all about the people. I’m an ambassador with the Ocala Metro Chamber & Economic Partnership and am involved in many ways in the community, such as with special events, ribbon cuttings, After Hours socials and more.”

She credits much of her success to being a people person and having a “small but mighty team.”

She says a lot of clients come from word of mouth with satisfied and repeat customers who trust her, as well as being extremely active on social media. She even has a YouTube channel and recently was selected to host segments of the Emmy-winning American Dream TV series, which showcases the lifestyle in a city.

“I’ll be featuring local favorite hot spots in the community,” Perez notes of some of the topics she plans to highlight. “It’s very exciting for me!”

Perez wants to assure potential clients that she and Real Estate Advisor Christine Young are passionate about offering the highest level of customer service that goes above and beyond expectations.

“Buying a home can be very emotional,” she states. “We will be there every step of the way, providing the very best in concierge service.”
