It's a rare slice of pre-Disney Florida that's still available today.26 story working tourist observation tower that's technically the highest point in Florida. Located on a 300 ft. hill in Clermont's hilly terrain (the 'Alps of Florida'), the 226ft. tower features an elevator ride to a windowed 360 degree observation deck.Today, the views are no longer dominated by endless rolling hills of oranges, grapefruit and many varieties thereof, as catastrophic freezes in the late 1980's destroyed the fragile fruit trees and never fully recovered.In sharp contrast, the view of endless rows of citrus has been replaced with subdivisions, shopping centers, restaurants, etc. Photos framed and mounted along the walls of the observation deck show the once pristine views of lakes, hills and groves...the contrast is startling. The view is still impressive.Pay a small fee, $6 per adults, $4 per child. "Ride to the Top" is the slogan. Board an elevator, look around for a few minutes, visit the gift shop at the base, and see the historical exhibit about the tower's construction in 1956.Worth a quick stop if you're in the Disney 192/Hwy 27 area.Bonus trip next door...The House of Presidents wax and historical Presidential artifacts.

I have entrusted 4 of my rental properties to Elite Rental Management for the past 8 years. I feel blessed to have this company watching over me and my property. It was important for me to find a reliable, honest management company, as I was working on a military installation overseas for most of this time. Prior to finding Elite Rental Management, I had very bad luck with 2 other companies. The first company was stealing from the landlords and the second one was irresponsible resulting in $4,000 of property damage. Since I have worked with Elite Renal Management, I have been more than satisfied. This company is awesome! I believe that Elite has been good to me, the owner, and the tenants. They are immediately responsive to the tenants when they need a repair or something goes wrong. At the same time, they have set up a network of honest contractors who they call on for repairs and maintenance. This should give the owners and tenants peace of mind. Elite’s trustworthiness and integrity is important to me, so I highly recommend this company to owners and tenants.
My husband and I were tenants of a house that Mrs. Phyllis Rodman managed. As tenants we NEVER had problems. Our calls were returned at the moment or later during the day. If there was anything that needed to be fixed, she managed to take care of it as soon as posible and we never had to wait more than a week. She always notified us of her visits and she tried to make the arangements to make it convinient for us. If you are a responsable tenant, you will never have any problems with her at all. We are flexible and very responsable people and we understand that if you are a property manager and also want to keep a property (that is not yours) in good condition you must have not only a good rental contract, but also visit the property. If we were owners of a property that we would want to rent, we wouldn't hesitate to have her as our property manager. We had been renting property ever since we moved to the USA, and she has been by far, the best property manager we know. Damaris and Luciano.
Before I knew I needed a property manager, I was told about Elite Rental Management from a friend in New York who had been using her services for a while and was extremely pleased and grateful to be in contract with Phyllis Rodman with Elite Rental Management, Inc.In 2007, I acquired a property in Minneola and needed someone to manage this property as well as my home in Ocoee. Phyllis came in and was very professional and knowledgeable with her assessment and suggestions.Over the years, I have proven her to be a woman who is hard working and personable; her integrity leads the way.Phyllis now manages two (2) rental properties for me and is also my Real Estate Broker handling the sale of another!My experience with Phyllis and her staff at Elite Rental Management has been WONDERFUL!
The agent i worked with at era clermont was Diannah Miguel. She was the most encouraging, positive, and supportive real estate agent i have ever worked with. She stood by me and encouraged me with positive reinforcement over the course of the nearly year it took to sell my house.She even came over and helped me clean. She was honest and kind and always called back, explained the market clearly , and that in my experience is rare in the real estate business. It took me a few realtors to find her. She took a personal interest in making dreams come true for me and the buyer. I am proud to know her and recommend her highly.
We have nothing but praise for Phyllis Rodman and Elite Rental Management. She attends to every issue promptly, and leaves us (the owners) worry free regarding our property. She finds the best value in contractors to address the issues that arise in any rental property. She found renters for our property very quickly, including new renters when the first tenants had to move out of town. Her meticulous record keeping makes tax time a breeze. Her fees are very reasonable, and a great value to us. We trust her decision making and recommend her to anyone wishing to hire a property manager.
Ms. Phyllis Rodman has been the Property Manager for my Investment house in Clermont Florida for several years. I have always found her to be very courteous and professional in her relationship with me. She ensured that the property was well taken care of, collected the rent and did all deposits to my account in a timely manner. Repairs and maintenance were done whenever necessary. I had a worry free experience while Phyllis took care of everything. I highly recommend Phyllis Rodman as a property manager.
We have been renting with Phyllis Rodman and Elite Rental Management for almost 3 years now and we have been completely satisfied with every aspect of dealing with them. Any maintenance request we may have had was fixed promptly. Also, Phyllis fought for us to get our special request to have a screen installed on our porch. We have enjoyed working with her and would suggest them to anyone. Thank you :)
Phyllis at Elite is a GREAT property manager. I have been a tenant at one of her properties for almost two years. She always returns any communication promptly, and has always provided assistance when we needed it. The property is well maintained, and when we like to have extra things done on our dime, she recommends great companies at reasonable rates. It is always a pleasure doing business with her!
Dear Phyllis, I just wanted to thank you for being so reliable. My accounts come in on time and I always know what's going on. I just had to let know how happy I am to have everything taken care of. I know my rental property is in good hands. Thank you for helping me and being a super Property Manager! Linda
