The objective of First Tampa Financial Group Golf Course Buyer Representation Program is to identify and present properties that fit your purchase criteria. It may sound simple but it is not always an easy task. A buyer will typically set basic criteria such as price, return, location, etc., but often does not initially recognize other, less obvious criteria that influence the decision to purchase a golf course or hospitality property.

The First Tampa Financial Group Golf Team takes the time to walk the buyer through the financial commitment required, the time commitment required, the lifestyle impact and all the other emotional ups and downs of ownership.
