About Us


In 1972, Pioneer Realty was established as a full-service real estate and property management company. We have serviced the real estate needs of investors around the world. They have entrusted us with hundreds of millions of dollars of assets. Our management portfolio of single-family rental homes has grown to over 900 units in Florida, with contractual commitments to increase our inventory to over 1,300 by early 2024. Additionally, we manage shopping centers, office buildings, and apartment complexes.

In 2016, we successfully merged several property management entities to form one company with one mission. Poised for growth and geared toward providing excellent customer service, Innovation Property Management Inc. emerged. Since its formation, our management inventory has grown well over 300%. Offices are located in Winter Park, Kissimmee, Avalon Park/Orlando, Haines City, Melbourne, and Cape Coral (coming third quarter 2022).

Our dedicated and capable staff of 18+ full-time personnel includes a general manager, property managers, accountants, administrative assistants, and runners. Our sales division RE/MAX Pioneer consists of 23 licensed real estate agents. A live person answers all of our calls 24/7/365. This is designed to provide personalized and immediate service to our clients and tenants.


Our company philosophy is simple. Create an environment where all parties “win.” In the 50+ years that we have been in business, we have earned a reputation that “we stand behind our words.” We place our clients’ needs before our own. Because of our long-term relationships in the business community, we are afforded priority service from our vendors and service contractors. As we grow, they grow.

While we strive for excellence, we recognize perfection is impossible. Mistakes are inevitable. The difference is, we believe in owning them and learning from them, rather than passing the blame or pointing fingers.


All of our technology and systems are real time and cloud based. Reports are generated in minutes to hours, not days to weeks. We have successfully satisfied the reporting needs of a single client all the way to a National Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT).
