The history of Apopka, and the real estate that makes up this Orlando area community, neatly marks its transition from Indian lodging grounds to the indoor foliage capital of the world to a city best known for its prime real estate and exclusive addresses. A full century and a half ago what is know one of the hottest real estate markets in Central Florida and neighboring Orlando was first christened “Apopka” -- a name which roughly translates to “Big Potato.”

Real estate developers have created neighborhoods and individual residences that bespeak style and elegance across the board.
While it might sound trite to refer to “dream homes,” there perhaps is not more apt description of what people are finding when they consider real estate development and residential real estate options that are widely available today in Apopka. Truly, people are moving to Apopka at a faster rate than in any other Orlando area community in search of their very own dream homes.
Another plus to life in Apopka is the fact that it is so conveniently located to other points and destinations in Orange County and elsewhere in Central Florida. For example, a resident can travel from Apopka to Orlando literally in no time at all.
A great deal of effort and energy continues to be expended to ensure that Apopka maintains its enviable status as a most livable city. Parks, green spaces and other amenities abound in the community.
