Vinnie De Rosa

Cuzin Vinnie will entertain you! LOL

I have spent a major part of my life in Florida Real Estate. It all began in 1968 when my family moved from Long Island, New York to Citrus County, Florida. I had the up close and personal opportunity to watch raw land turn into a new home development at De Rosa Village, helping my parents develop the land through PeteDeRosa.com. As a family we also built De Rosa Plaza, De Rosa Plaza Flea Market and De Rosa Plaza Volunteer Fire Company! The De Rosa family legacy includes Florida Real Estate University, Buyers Broker Real Estate, Cuzin Vinnie Mini Putt, plus my first real estate sale was the Seven Rivers Hospital site and now Cuzin Vinnie Network starts a new chapter!
Just for the record since 1980 an active Florida Real Estate Broker and Florida Real Estate Instructor, so I speak from many years of trial and error.
