Team Yarborough - Spencer Yarborough - Realtor
I am a native Floridian, born and raised in Miami, Florida. I grew up living the Florida "lifestyle" which for me was boating, fishing and diving in beautiful Biscayne Bay, The Florida Keys and the Bahamas. With every adventure I learned something new and as the years went by, I gained an understanding and respect for what makes Florida so special. South Florida was not the only place I called home. During the summers, my family would head north to Ocala, Florida and spend time at the family home on Lake Weir in Ocklawaha, Florida. Exploring the Ocala National Forest and spending time on horse farms was another passion of mine. My mother's side of the family is one of the early pioneer family's in Marion and Sumter County. The small farming community of Pedro, Florida is named after my great, great, great grandfather, Peter Boyer Perry, a Civil War soldier that returned home after the conflict a local hero. The town itself is only minutes from Florida's largest retirement community The Villages. The landscape and way of life of Central Florida is very different from South Florida, but it gave me just another perspective on how unique this state is.
After graduating from high school, I pursued another passion which was baseball. I was recruited by numerous schools, but choose to play Junior College baseball at Central Florida Community College. After graduating with my A.A. degree, I continued my college career at Auburn University and Florida International University. I received my Bachelors degree in Sports and Recreation Management with special core work in Sports Merchandising and Promotion. I am also Microsoft IT certified with A+ and MCP certifications.
For 14 years, I worked in the Sports Product Industry, primarily in the fishing tackle industry. My career started in the manufacturing sector and branched out into sales and management. As the industry changed, I focused more on the Promotional and Marketing side of the industry and branched out into other Sporting Goods sectors, doing more contract work for larger corporations. When I was not traveling, I started taking clients fishing when they visited South Florida. In 1994, I became a U.S.C.G. licensed captain and was a part time fishing and outdoor guide. Inshore fishing and airboat tours were my specialty.
In November of 2006, after a lifetime in South Florida, I decided to make the permanent move to Central Florida where I now call home. In 2007 I became a real estate agent and joined my first brokerage firm. I have assisted sellers and buyers with new construction and pre-existing homes. My team and I can assist you with all your real estate needs and find exactly what your looking for. With my vast knowledge of this state and its history, it would be our pleasure to assist you in anyway.
