Richard DiPalo, Former Broker of Record, started selling Florida properties, beginning with the sale of new homes, after moving to the Pasco / Hernando area in the late 1980’s. Since earning his Broker’s license and purchasing Florida Tropics Realty, Inc., Richard and his wife Emily have maintained the brokerage as a family owned and operated company. He specialized in the sale of vacant land, residential properties, acreage, new home construction and commercial properties to help families build their homes and lives throughout the area. Richard’s expertise in the field and his great respect for the land earned him many accolades and respect in the community.
