With decades of real estate and construction experience to our credit, we collaborate with the best in the business, matching your unique project needs, expectations and budget with the right architects, builders and industry resources. As consultants we are your resource for building the ultimate custom home.

Based in beautiful Winter Park, our team serves the greater Central Florida market along with New Smyrna Beach. We have access to off-market land in the most desirable areas in Central Florida, including Winter Park, College Park, Lake Adair, Orlando, New Smyrna and more.


We simplify the custom-build process — bringing all essential resources to the table. We are a single point of contact; creating a streamlined, efficient, and cost conscious building experience.

Step 1

Project Scope

At The Hope Group, we sit on the same side of the table, approaching your custom home project from your vantage point: Your needs, design style, expectations, budget — we gather these essential cues and elements to formulate your master project vision.

Step 2

Site Selection

Whether you have a neighborhood in mind or need our team to find land that ideally suits your specifications, we have the local knowledge and resources to provide you with well-curated site selection options.

Step 3

Builder Selection

We work with the area’s leading custom builders— and so, we know their strengths, limitations, personalities, etc. We’re the most qualified professionals that match you and your project profile and then arrange discovery meetings, so you can choose your ideal builder with complete confidence.

Step 4


We work with several premier lenders that offer a host of loan products designed to meet your individual needs. Often, we can combine the land and construction cost into a one-time close, at an added savings to you.

Step 5

Architect & Interior Designer Selection

To ensure your finished home is exactly what you’re looking for the architect and designers will work with you from beginning to end.

Lets Get Started


“I arrived in the Orlando/Winter Park area and met Steve and Robbie on a recommendation from a friend. We hit the road running looking for my personal home. They were able to provide and show me excellent investment neighborhoods. They worked with my budget and together we found a home within two days. They presented my offer and worked with the buyer and myself negotiating a win-win purchase for all. They followed the Closing Agent step by step and professionally completed the sale right to the closing table. They also offered an amazing enjoyable experience with plenty of personal attention. Thank you Steve and Robbie, and I look forward to working with you in purchasing additional investment properties.”
Nancy H., Client
“Robbie, Once again thank you for all your help in selling our home. You are a true professional and a pleasure to work with. I am very glad we chose to use you as our realtor. Best of luck in the future and thanks again.”
Dennis H., Client
“If you’re looking to buy or sell a home, Steve Clayson is your man! He’s really knowledgeable and he was always super responsive. He was really helpful when our first offer ended up falling through and gave us all our options. My husband and I were very pleased we were still able to close before the end of the year on a different property.”
