Nearly a decade of experience and many wonderful people served, I'm blessed to work in real estate. I live in Oviedo with my teenage son and several pets, and help buyers and sellers throughout central Florida with homes, horse property, land and investments.
Prior to real estate I sold telecom and hsi to businesses for a competitor to Verizon, followed by a territory sales position with a Fortune 500 industrial supply company. In addition I was a professional horse trainer and instructor and published a print and digital magazine for central Florida equestrians.
I'm ecstatic to have found this Christian Chamber (thank you Nicole Furniss-Party for a Purpose Events!) and look forward to meeting everyone, making new friends and being of service at every opportunity possible.
I have worked in some type of educational facility most of my life - From Pre-School to College. I currently serve in the role of Admissions Counselor where I am privileged to assist others in fulfilling their dreams and their goals of higher education to advance their careers. I began my journey at Palm Beach Atlantic University, Orlando in 2014, when I walked through the doors to become a student and finish my bachelor's degree. It was a 25 year process and I succeeded in 2017. I began working for PBA in 2018 and then continued to pursue my Master's degree. I completed that degree during lock down in the pandemic.
I now have the privilege of assisting others in fulfilling their passions and dreams as the Admissions Counselor at Palm Beach Atlantic University ~ Orlando.
HOPE Helping Other People Everyday is more than just a motto. I was first introduced to the importance of health coverage when my youngest son was born 4 weeks premature. His lungs were not fully developed, and he was rushed to the neonatal intensive care unit.
The doctor's worked to get him breathing with tubes in his chest and medications but nothing was working, and he was getting worse. He was given a 5% chance for life. I would have gladly exchanged my life for his. At that time, is when I learned the power of prayer in my life.
My son is fully healthy today, the cost for his time in the hospital and procedures was over $250,000 before our insurance took care of the cost. That event changed our life forever, my wife and daughter became nurses and my sons, one is in business, and one is in the health industry.
My passion is to protect families and small businesses. I educate all my clients, so they know when something does happen, they are covered. If you want an agent who will be there for you, wants to help you and knows the importance protecting your loved ones. Let me show you how I can be of service to you.

My name is Deron Lacy, and I am a residential loan officer with Academy Mortgage. I have been a trusted financial advisor & lender for over 30+ years in Central Florida. Moving to Orlando in 1965, I have seen the incredible growth that has happened to all of the surrounding communities and cities throughout Florida since then. Throughout my years in the financial industry, I have served on several boards and have been involved in the Greater Seminole County Chamber of Commerce, the Apopka Chamber of Commerce & the East Orlando Chamber of Commerce. It is now my honor to be a member of the Central Florida Christian Chamber of Commerce and I welcome the opportunity to grow and serve with them as well.
As a residential lender, I recognize that purchasing a home is the biggest business transaction that most people will go thru in their lives and they will go thru this a few times and some even once. And the stresses that come along with it outside of just the lending, all the relationships involved - the agents, the sellers, having to make the moves, new school systems, families and kids - everything about it can be overwhelming. I enjoy being a part of it and maybe pull everybody back and help calm them down and walk them through how to manage the stress and enjoy this. I enjoy the face to face, the personal aspect of it and I believe that I can make the process relatively simple that can turn very difficult for many buyers and make it as easy as possible. It's a phone call or send me a text or email, we can handle your application over the phone if you like. If you're more comfortable on your own time completing the loan application, our process is as simple as it gets - extremely user friendly and once you are done completing it, I will be notified automatically and will jump right into your application and you will have my feedback within minutes, as quickly as I can give you my personal opinion, and them we can move forward if you feel comfortable.
I look forward to serving you and your family with your new home purchase and or refinance.
I am one of the few Native Floridians who was born and raised in Winter Park, Florida, and have continued to reside here for 45 years. Loving the small-town feel of beautiful Winter Park and the amazing opportunities in Central Florida, I decided to raise my own family here, including three sons, who are 13, 10, and 4 years old. I graduated from Rollins College with an undergraduate degree in Sociology and Psychology in 1999 and earned my MBA in Marketing and Management from Crummer Graduate School of Business in 2001. I met the love of my life, Robby, when I was 8 years old at Sunday School, and after almost 30 years of friendship we got married in 2017.
I utilized my marketing degree and expertise by partnering with local Financial Planners and Attorneys to identify their ideal clients while building their referral network. For over 20 years, I’ve helped business leaders run their companies in a more profitable manner by creating strategic branding and marketing initiatives. I started my own company, The Aimee Advantage, in 2019 with the goal of optimizing my time with my family while continuing my relationship-building skills by acting as a consultant to business owners, who need marketing guidance but don’t have the budget or ability to hire a full-time in-house Marketing Director. Running my own company allows me the freedom to partner with a select group of elite clients whose values and goals align with mine. I am passionate about promoting businesses who care deeply about their clients and provide excellent service without only focusing on financial gain but improving our community and their clients’ quality of life.
In my spare time, I volunteer with The Finley Project, whose mission is to help grieving mothers who have lost infants by providing a 7-part holistic healing program. After my daughter, Kaitlyn, passed away in October of 2012, I wanted to cherish her memory by giving back to an organization who helped moms by providing funeral preparation, grocery shopping, house cleaning, and most importantly mental health counseling directly following the most traumatic type of loss. I am blessed to sit on the Board of Directors for this nonprofit and work with Noelle Moore, Founder of The Finley Project, to create awareness about infant loss while raising community support. We are always looking for donations of time, talent, and treasure. It costs approximately $1,500 to support one mother and provide all our services to her over a 6-month timeframe. We are in desperate need, more than ever, for all types of support. We don’t want to ever turn a mom away when she is experiencing the most unimaginable type of grief. For more information on how to help support our organization go to www.thefinleyproject.org.

I have always had a passion for being of service to others, which included my past leadership roles and volunteering and teaching players/coaches the game of baseball. I enjoy making sure that my clients feel valued and we work together to achieve our goals. It is important to me that all parties feel this partnership and we act in the best interest of our clients. Before beginning my career with Edward Jones, I enjoyed being a client for several years. The service and individual attention I received made me want to become a part of this great organization.
As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I have an opportunity to be a key resource in helping you. I utilize a proven five step process to understand what goals you’re working toward before you invest your money.

Together, we take the necessary steps to help reach your long-term goals and celebrate our successes together.
Life comes with change; career, job, retirement, living in retirement and other life events create this change. I assist clients in navigating through the cycles of life without losing focus on your priorities. As a former professional athlete, I will take that competitive mindset of winning and performing at my best throughout our partnership.
My branch team and I focus on providing tailored solutions for families and small businesses to help achieve their life goals financially. I am honored and appreciative of you involving me in your financial strategy. I value your trust and I will work with the urgency and concern for what's important to you, as I do for that of my own family. I am also a father and an example to my daughters. My wife and I love calling Central Florida “home,” and it is a privilege to serve in our community.
With nearly 20 years in HR, nine of those in business ownership, Dawn understands the pressures of entrepreneurship. She began her professional career after graduating from UCF with her business degree in 2004. Since then, she has supported hundreds of companies in Central Florida with their hiring and firing needs either as a corporate recruiter, staffing company, or consultant. It was during those years in staffing that the concept of Sipley The Best was born. Instead of the agency experience where they simply do the grunt work for you, STB targets companies that truly care about the culture of the company, dedicated to attracting diverse but like-minded talent, and while choosing to value the team they already have in place. Dawn also has a passion for public speaking and educating both job seekers and employers about best practices in the world of HR.
Dawn is also married to Jason Sipley, her high school prom date living in Sanford with their two children Tawn and Bray. Both Dawn and Jason have deep roots in Sanford and Central Florida. Dawn's great great grandfather, Henry S. Chubb, was 2nd mayor of Winter Park while Jason's grandfather Hugh Carlton was the Principal for Sanford Middle for over a decade.
As a family, Team Sipley enjoys the outdoors through paddle boarding, kayaking, camping, fishing, hunting, oystering, scalloping, foraging, and minimalist hiking. They are also members of Action Church in Sanford, where each of them serve. Dawn also serves the Central Florida Christian Chamber of Commerce as the Ambassador Co-Chair and as a Board of Directors for Act to Act. Through these 3 organizations and a fair amount of speaking events, Dawn is able to serve her community nearly 500 hours annually, while still running a successful HR Firm.
