Todd Ostrander
RE/MAX Elite
About Todd

"I'm highly motivated, very ambitious and receptive to all your needs. I always have your best interest at heart!" Todd moved here from Minnesota 25 years ago with nothing more than his unique way with people & the support of his family. He landed a job in the service industry similar to his position in Minnesota. After 2 years of hard work he and his family built their first home in Melbourne Beach. The process of building & maintaining a home has inspired him to help others live that same dream. Todd and his family devote much of their spare time to helping animals with the goal of one day starting an animal sanctuary. Todd has taken this same drive and motivation along with a great attitude into his real estate career. He specializes in representing his clients with their best interest always in mind. He sometimes really makes miracles happen for his clients Todd has been serving the citizens of Brevard County for many years with high energy, hard work and his unique way with people. His vast knowledge of the many neighborhoods and communities in the area, interest in real estate and willingness to go above and beyond for his clients is a winning combination for either buyers or sellers! This type of attitude has made him "Top 1% of Brevard County agents" in sales! In 2012 I closed over 10 Million in sales & made it into the top 1% of Brevard County agents and there I remain. (fyi...there are 3200 agents in the county) In 2013 I reached over $12,000,000 in total sales & was inducted into the "RE/MAX HALL OF FAME" after only 5 years in the business. In 2014 I was fortunate enough to be in the top 20 agents in the county with over $15,000,000 in sales. In 2015 I closed over $22,000,000 and made it into the top 15 agents in a county with 3200 agents total & gave me the "Chairman's Club" stature. In 2016 I ended up closing over $18,000,000 which put me in the top 20 again...keeping in mind that most every agent above me in sales works in teams. In 2017 I was once again ranked in the top 25 agents in the county by selling over $17,000,000. In 2018 I received the "Lifetime Achievement Award" and ended up closing 50 properties for over $18,000,000. This landed me once again in the top 1% of Brevard County Agents! I worked very hard in 2019 and ended up closing 52 properties for $20,458,000 which exceeds my goal. I really appreciate all the trust and confidence my clients had in me this year...I really did make some miracles happen!! The magic continues in 2020 as I have 10-20 revolving listings & many great buyers moving to the area! In fact....I have just broken my 2015 record by selling 57 properties for over 23,000,000 in 2020...which Is amazing with all the worldly challenges last year!! I am currently one of the top 15 Real Estate agents in Brevard County (with over 4,000 Real Estate agents)....I'm actually one of the top 5 SINGLE AGENTS in the county if you wanted to eliminate builders and agent teams. 
 I am breaking all the records on sales prices in 2021....these are magic times for sellers and listing specialists like me!! I ended the year by single handed closing over 50 transactions for almost $30,000,000 which works out to a $500,000 per sale average. These numbers put me at #3 SINGLE AGENT in the county in 2021 (#24 including builders and teams) It seems that I'm rolling down the same path in 2022 as I have already closed almost 10,000,000 in just 3 months!! Crazy....Im currently #5 out of all agents & teams combined....what a blessing.....but....I have1 question......Who is next??? In summary, I have closed a total of over 550 transactions which equals over 300 Million Dollars of Real Estate since I started in the bad market of 2007/2008...I work alone with no partner or assistant so if you need me I am here for you 24/7. The most important thing is that all my clients seem to be happy! Rest assured ....you are in very qualified hands! Below are some of my current listings, under contract listings & properties I have sold throughout my career. My specialty is marketing unique properties and water properties by using a professional photographer to capture the most beautiful pictures and an array of special internet marketing accounts that attract buyers from all around the world. I also have the experience and knowledge to help ANY seller that wants an agent that is hardworking, trustworthy and goes the extra mile to handle each of his clients on a "one on one" basis.

Thomas Taranto
Keller Williams - Melbourne
About Thomas

The past 25 years have trained me in many skills and abilities that are often critical in serving our clients in a real estate transaction. In 1990 I moved from Melbourne Florida to Sweden, where I spent the next 14 years working with top corporate executives in the field of training and development. Many of the subjects I taught have proven very useful in the past 15 years that I have worked as a real estate agent and Broker/Owner. I trained companies such as Sony Ericsson, AstraZeneca, IBM, Pharmacia, the Swedish Prime Minister’s staff, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, the Stockholm School of Economics, Venture Cup, Telia, Tele2, EDS, the Department for Civilian Defense, Statistics Sweden, and the Swedish Consumer Agency. I learned to speak fluent Swedish and translated hundreds of documents, articles and presentations from Swedish to English. I have also translated several books, including a 300-page book on Crisis Management.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Palm Bay?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Palm Bay?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Palm Bay to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Palm Bay is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
