I found Allen very helpful when selling my property in Kissimmee. My wife and I were both quite ignorant of the selling process in the United States. We are resident in in England and clearly there were issues and terminology around the sale of our American property which required explanation. Alan was always readily available to provide this for us both in response to text requests and phone messages. Selling a property is a testing experience no matter where you are resident but I would recommend that if you are selling from the United Kingdom then you could do no better than choosing Alan Martin as your RealtorLess
Bought a home in 2015 in Citrus Ridge, Celebration, FL 34747.
I have purchased my first Kissimmee area condo via the services of Alan. He is a solid 5 star in every category. I would suggest that Zillow add another category entitled “Follow-up after the sale.” I’ve had many questions of various nature, and Alan has been there with me and for me every step of the way, ever the consummate professional. I will definitely use him, and only him, for future real estate purchases and heartily recommend him to others without reservation.Less
Bought a home in 2015 in Florida Center, Tangelo Park, FL 32819.
Working with Alan was a great satisfaction for me, for the dedication, honesty and the ease with which we interact. Trulia sent me the record of a property in Orlando and I, at 7,000 miles away, I asked Alan to investigate that for me this without ever having known him before. He promptly visited the property, took several pictures, made all the comments about the property and from there the entire purchasing process began. He referred me all documentation related to the property and within a month,and also more than 100 e-mails sent from each side,I bought it without ever having seen such a degree of security Alan gave me. And to my surprise, the property was better than I had imagined. After purchasing Alan helped me a lot to indicate the energy companies, cable tv and internet, and also with the administration of the condominium. Thank you Alan for your help and loyalty to me. I will definitely point it out to those who need to buy a property in Orlando
Sold a Townhouse home in 2016 for approximately $150K in Kissimmee, FL.
Alan went above and beyond for us!! Without him our sale would have fallen through. He is on top of things and gets an A++++ for great communication skills. Thankyou Alan.

“I want to thank both of you for the expeditious and professional manner for the sale and closing of my property. It has been a pleasure working with both of you.”
Andy – December 14th 2012
“Hey Alan… Service has been first rate, we closed on 308 new providence yesterday, thanks for yours and Shelley’s help over the last few months”.
Liz, UK – August 25th 2012
“I just wanted to say a big thank you to you both for all your help and support in resolving the sale and closing etc., of our Florida property. It’s such a relief to have all that over with now. You were both very supportive, kind and professional. Thank you again”.
Alan Goldsbrough, UK – August 2012
“I would like to say that the sale of 234 Gleneagles Drive, and our previous property at Indian Creek, was made extremely easy due to your help and professionalism throughout. Selling these properties in the US when we ourselves are based in the UK I know would have proven far more difficult had it not been for your help and guidance throughout, for which we are very grateful. Thank you very much Shelley”.
Robert Ayre, UK – April 2012
“We are indebted to the team at Frontline for their expertise and support. They were very patient with us as we did not understand the process at all, being British. Family illness also complicated matters, but Shelley and her colleagues were extremely patient, understanding and professionalism”.
Scott & Karen Rawlings, Canada – March 2012
“Working with Alan was a treat. He handled all the details and being from a different country he made us feel at ease. He had all the answers and if he didn’t would find out and get back to us ASAP. He also had contacts for us with regards to short term rental companies, painters, air conditioning repair etc. I can’t say enough about this great realtor. Very professional. Easy to deal with. Just a pleasure to do business with”.
Darlyen Hess – March 2012
“I thank G-d for you and your team. They were truly remarkable. Remember, I worked with two other real estate firms before finding you, and that was because of your mailing and word of mouth. You Alan, were the seventh buyer that we kept track of, and somehow we stayed in there. It had to be with G-d’s help. I couldn’t have done it alone. I will always be thankful for your interest and assistance”
Ian Turner, UK – December 2011
“I found Frontline Florida after multiple third party real-estate listing sites kept on coming up with their contact details. Over a period of a few weeks their detailed emailing service with candidate properties on the entire Orlando market helped us understand what we could and should be getting for our budget; and helped us with a short list of candidate properties to actually view. Being a Brit looking to invest in a property in Orlando I was glad to find out that Alan and his daughter are originally from the UK so would understand our position and help us with their local knowledge (and their accent!). On our first meeting Alan worked out of hours to shuttle my wife and I around to the short list of properties, and then helped us complete and turnaround an offer for a property within 18 hours of seeing it. Great professionalism, dedication and attention to detail that made the entire process a breeze in the park!”
Tracy, UK – December 2011
“Thank you so very much for all the help and advice over the past few weeks, you have been great and couldn’t have done all this without you. I’m so excited about the house it’s a dream come true, so thank you for everything”.
Gavan Graham Electrical Products, New Jersey – October 6th 2011
“Thank you for all your help you have been a pleasure to deal with. Efficient and knowledgeable too, which most others involved have not been not least the seller and their agents. Thanks again”.
Steve Wood, UK – September 6th, 2011
“I cannot praise Alan and Frontline Florida Realty enough. I was an overseas buyer looking for my first place in Florida, and did not have a clue about the buying process in the USA. Alan guided me through the whole process, even putting me in touch with a US bank, so I could open an account from England. He even knew a small builder I could use to carry out upgrades to my property. I would use Frontline Florida every time, just excellent top rate service”.
Marth Christensen, USA – September 2011
“Alan and company handled my short sale with professionalism and efficiency. Very responsive to my questions and worked well with the lenders”.
Scott and Karent Rawlings, Canada – August 2011
“Alan was a fantastic agent to work with. Dealing in a long distance purchase he made us very comfortable with buying our vacation condo. His contacts and knowledge were very helpful and I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking at buying a home”.
Oai Truong, Canada – August 2011
“Alan Martin provided us with exceptional and responsive service that made our first vacation rental purchase easy and stress-free. His ongoing support and advice after the purchase have been appreciated as well”.
Scott and Karen – June 2nd 2011
“It was great speaking with your today, you are very knowledgeable and it made me very comfortable having to do business far away. It feels like night and day between you and the other agent. I’m so glad we connected. Thanks for your help in this venture”.
Ralph Connor, Texas – May 2011
“Thank you so much. I am more convinced than ever that we have the correct real estate man to represent us. The other day when you apologized for your initial approach, it was obvious that you have not dealt allot with Texans. We are very straight forward and appreciate the same in others.
Tony – August 2010
“Many thanks Alan, this is a huge weight off our shoulders.
Would like to express our sincere thanks to Shelley, Pam and yourself for all your help in achieving this”.
Tracy P, New York – January 2010
“We recently decided to buy a Florida vacation/retirement home and Alan and Shelley at Florida Frontline Realty were recommended to me as agents. The process is different in Florida than it is in New York and Alan made an intimidating process seem simple and direct, even long distance. Lawyers aren’t generally used at closings in Florida and I truly feel that Alan has been looking out for our best interests every step of the way. He was friendly, professional and very patient as he showed us over 20 properties (some more than once) in 2 days! He provided knowledgeable insight and answered every question directly. If he didn’t know the answer, he quickly found it for us, even if it wasn’t directly related to real estate! We truly appreciated the time and effort he devoted to us and I feel confident that we will able to go to him with any questions and concerns even after the process of closing on our new home in Davenport is complete. Thank you Alan”.
Horacio, Argentina – January 27th 2010
“This was my first experience buying a property in the US and also has been done fully remotely from overseas (I will go on).At this point of time I would need to recognize that your help and guidance during the whole process was critical for me and extremely important”.
Susan Sammons, Scotland, UK – 12th December 2009
“I am from Scotland, and decided I would like to buy a property in Florida to have somewhere warm to go for the winter. I contacted Alan about a property I was interested in which he had listed for sale on his company website earlier this year. He then phoned me and gave an insight into the buying of property in the US, which is completely different to Scotland. He made everything so simple, and regularly sent updates on properties I might be interested in. Once I had decided on a particular apartment complex, he sent me information on every apartment which came up for sale there. He even visited the complex to check it out for me, as I was buying it unseen, and photos on the web do not always give a true representation of the place. He then submitted multiple offers on apartments for me until I finally got one. All I had to do was complete and sign one very short set of papers. Alan then arranged a lawyer to take care of the purchase and the deed work. The purchase was completed in less than 3 weeks. I have been buying properties for over 25 years now and Alan went way above and beyond the normal duties I have experienced from estate agents. He made the whole process so simple and couldn’t have been more helpful both during the process and since. He helped me with the electricity, the water, the telephone, rental advice (even offering me the use of a website he had made for short term holiday leasing) plus much more. However, there was more to come. When I got out there, my apartment needed redecorating as well as many minor repairs and upgrades, such as new taps (faucets), door knobs etc etc. I also needed flat-pack furniture built, mirrors and pictures hung, the ceiling fans replaced, a flat screen TV wall-mounted, +++++++. I mentioned this to Alan, who then introduced me to his daughter’s husband, Tim Freeman, an aircraft engineer, who, in his spare time, did absolutely EVERYTHING himself to a professional standard and was a mine of useful information and advice. I can’t recommend both of them highly enough”.
Brian, UK – October 2009
“Hi Alan and Shelley, thanks for all you did with the houses; this really was a life saver!
All the best to you and your family”.
Robbie Prentice, Scotland – February 2008
“I am pleased to say we were delighted with the service provided – initially you had a comprehensive list of properties which fulfilled our criteria and when we then changed the criteria nothing was too much trouble and you came up with another list of suitable properties. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone”.
Kaz, Scotland, UK – February 2008
“Alan Martin of Frontline Florida Realty was the answer to all my prayers as far as buying a house in Orlando goes. He was very honest and genuine from the minute I contacted him to the day I took ownership of my house. He worked extremely hard and beyond all my expectations, especially when I went to Florida for a week and ended up seeing over 30 houses. He provided us with neutral information and advice with all issues regarding a house purchase including insurance and property management to name but a few. He made what I initially conceived as a minefield of a job, into a simple and enjoyable process. If I sell or buy property again in Orlando there is no doubt that Alan is the man I will turn to”.
Simon Langford – December 2007
“I recently purchased a property in the Disney vacation home area or central Florida using Alan Martin of Frontline Florida Realty as my real estate agent. (Realtor) Right from the very start Alan has put my interests first, guiding me through the process and advising me of the potential pitfalls. Alan even put himself out financially, paying for various costs on my behalf until I was able to reimburse him. When the home inspection revealed potential problems, Alan engaged head on with the authorities to work towards a resolution. As a buyer, I would have no hesitation in recommending Alan to anyone looking to purchase a property in Florida’.
Rod and Sandra, UK – December 2007
“Rod and I would like to say a big Thank you for helping us purchase our vacation home in Florida. We could not believe how quickly and smoothly it all went. We can’t wait to come back on Dec 26th and start enjoying our home. Once again thank you very much”.
Michael, UK – 20th May 2005
“Thank you very much for all your kindly help in purchasing my vacation home. I and my family sincerely appreciated all your help. You’re the best broker I ever worked with so far, I am not sure whether I can find another better one. Your kindness and great help definitely relieved me many anxiety. The renting experience you taught will be a great benefit for me down the road. I will for sure remember all your goodness you’ve done for us. Again, thanks a lot. I will definitely recommend you to all my friends. Wish you a bigger success in your business”.
