The following are some articles that we were asked to write for various real estate magazines over the years. They still contain interesting and relevant information for both buyers and sellers.

As one of the leading experts in sales of investment properties, second homes and vacation homes in the Orlando/Disney area to international and out of State buyers, Dolby Properties has often been asked to write articles for magazines. While most of the articles are for the UK media, there is much useful information that can be used by all buyers and sellers who are from outside our area. These articles, all written by Lesley Dolby, or Lesley and her partner, Steve Schaffer, are listed below and while they are now a few years old, the information is still very relevant and useful.
