Phil Oakes is a licensed Florida Real Estate Broker and relocated to Florida after graduation with a BA degree from the University of North Carolina at Asheville in 1981. His real estate career began with Century 21 in Orlando Florida where he specialized in residential sales and second homes. In 1990, recognizing a specialized niche in second and vacation homes, he started his own real estate brokerage firm. Together with his wife Gail, they owned and operated Ventura Properties, Inc., and Ventura Resort Rentals, Inc. They managed and brokered condominium vacation rentals and single family residential homes for over 700 absentee homeowner clients in Orlando. Many of Phil’s real estate clients often see waterfront homes, islands, and investment property while viewing the natural wonders of the environment perched on his flats boat, airboat or even a kayak!
