Hello there, we are Jose Rodriguez and Claudia Mundlos of Charles Rutenberg Realty in Orlando. We are residential real estate experts for Seminole and Orange County but also service parts of Lake and West Volusia County.
In the current market it is important to have an educated expert on your side who has not only experience with “regular” home sales but also with “distressed” home sales. We have successfully sold short sale properties since 2007. We are certified experts in negotiating with the banks (CDPE – Certified Distressed Property Experts) and have even helped owners to stay in their homes by explaining them how to negotiate a lower rate with the lender. Give us a call at 407-340-6458 or click here to learn how we can help home owners avoid foreclosure and we’d be happy to help you get started.
Jose and I are both full time Realtors and we take our careers very seriously! Here is a little about what we offer you. You will see why it is beneficial to have two Realtors who both focus on their specialties. In a tough market like this it is overwhelming for only one Realtor. Behind us stands a strong team of very well trained and educated people who help us on a daily basis with all the important tasks involved in exceeding our customers’ expectations.
Claudia (that’s me) is the Marketing and Design Expert. My background in online and social media marketing as well as graphic and web design enables me to produce high quality brochures, Web sites and media campaigns to make your home stand out. We truly understand the online aspect of real estate. Why that is important to you? If over 85% of all buyers start their search online, wouldn’t you want your home to stand out as the most desirable one? Be assured: we are constantly researching and investing in new ways to market our homes online – and it has paid off for our sellers!
Jose (my husband) is an excellent negotiator and knows how to stage a home to make it more sale-able. With Jose’s negotiation skills he will be able to bring existing offers up for our sellers. Jose knows the marketplace. He previews hundreds of homes every month and researches new listings every day so he can justify our list prices and explain them to buyers and their agents. That has resulted in lots of sales.
By the way, living in Florida many times Realtors will have to negotiate with Spanish speaking agents and answer questions of Hispanic buyers. Good to know that Jose is bilingual; he can negotiate in either English or Spanish at the highest professional level and promote your home to foreign buyers and investors. Click here to take a look at Jose’s Spanish Blog.
Now back to Jose’s staging skills: Potential buyers do not always have enough imagination to see the potential in a home. Therefore it is crucial to show your home in a way that suits every potential buyer. Jose will show you some insider tricks on how you can maximize your profit without spending a cent.
Let’s summarize the most important facts:
- Two full-time professionals are better than one meaning 100% more service every day!
- Claudia covers marketing and communication; our focus is clearly online marketing so we can attract the highest possible amount buyers for your home. However, we do not neglect other ways of marketing. A recent study has shown that the second most effective way to get buyers to inquire about your home are toll free hotlines. Of course, we have a complete system in place that will capture phone calls 24/7.
- Jose is a bilingual top negotiator and knows how to stage your home; both of these abilities will increase your profit significantly
- We are one of Orlando’s top selling teams and ranked within the top 2% of all Mid Florida Realtors

We make sure your home appeals to all potential buyers that enter it.
- Online/Internet/Social Media.
Besides being listed in the local MLS your home will be virtually found on any major real estate web site out there including but not limited to Realtor.com (the #1 consumer real estate web site), Yahoo classifieds, MSN, AOL, Trulia, Oodle, Google, Homes.com, HomeFinder.com, Craigslist and many more! Of course, you will also find your home on our company Web site WatsonRealtyCorp.com and featured on our Web sites TheRealEstators.com and RealEstateWall.com. By the way, on Trulia.com we are some of the few Realtors who are able to feature their listings. We make sure your listing shows up above other listings in buyers’ search results, giving you more exposure.
- Virtual Tours and Online Style Designer.
We know what buyers are looking for when searching. We work with lots of buyers on a daily basis and pictures say more than 1,000 words! So do Virtual Tours. That is why we hire a professional photographer to take high quality pictures and a virtual tour of your home. In our homes we also leave a professional looking Virtual Tour CD-ROM for interested buyers to take with them.

You will be pleasantly surprised at the wealth of information we provide to all of our sellers. You will also receive weekly phone calls and Emails, with a status update and recommendations from us personally.
