What we do

What we offer to our clients

Utmost Confidentiality: Global Portage provides services to prominent clients and deals with Florida's finest communities.  We guarantee that each inquiry and transaction is handled with discretion and we assure our select national and international clientele privacy and confidentiality.

Real Estate Research and Transaction advice


At Global Portage we are in tune with the current market conditions, the state and federal regulations that govern housing transactions, and up-and-coming developments or property plans. The process of researching good investment opportunities is much more efficient if you work with someone who already knows the market and the procedures. Our consultants will help you identify homes that fit your financial or investment criteria and family lifestyle.  We will narrow down the best available opportunities and present you only those that will work best for you.  Our team will compare the property to others in the same area and work with you to develop a negotiation strategy.  Our employees who are also licensed agents working with registered brokers will do all the negotiating on your behalf to make sure you get the best terms and price for the home you want.  As your real estate advisor, it's our job to ensure that your best interests are at the heart of your purchase.

Managing Your Property

You might need a Property Manager if (a) you have a general lack of experience or knowledge related to managing a property, (b) you are concerned about the amount of time you have to invest in managing, marketing and maintaining the property, or (c) you can't personally oversee the property due to the distance between the rental property and your personal home. 


As property managers, we can assist with managing tenant relations, staying on the right side of the law, being on call for any emergencies that come up, staying on top of home maintenance, conducting periodic property inspections, and handling the accounting and taxes which can be a time-consuming effort.  Through these efforts, we can actually increase your property's overall profitability.


Global Portage (represented by licensed agents) is pleased to offer the following Property Management services to selected clients:

  • Rental Payment - we will manage collecting rent and use our local knowledge to set the right rental payment levels to attract tenants and get you the most from your investment.
  • Manage Tenants - from finding the right tenants to dealing with complaints. In addition, we screen tenants, negotiate leases, facilitate move-in and move-out inspections and more.
  • Maintenance & Repair - we find and recommend the right maintenance and repair contractor to suit your property. 
  • Legal Issues - members of our staff know local, state and national laws for screening tenants, handling security deposits, terminating a lease, evicting a tenant, and complying with safety standards.
  • Budget & Record - we maintain thorough records, including income and expenses, inspections, leases, maintenance requests, complaints, repairs, rent collection, insurance and can refer you to property tax accountants.
