I am a Florida native and an avid Gator fan! In 1989, I relocated to Gainesville from Vero Beach to attend the University of Florida, where I obtained my BS in Business Administration. I later followed my passion for creativity and design and attended Santa Fe College where I received my AS in Graphic Design Technology.
I started my real estate career at the age of 20 as a part-time leasing agent. By the age of 26, I had my real estate license and by 28, I had my Broker's license. I have rounded out my real estate career as a Realtor, a Leasing Professional and a Property Manager. I have extensive knowledge about both the student and professional markets. I spent several years at one of Gainesville’s top Property Management companies and continue my career in sales at Gainesville's number one real estate company, Coldwell Banker!
In between my real estate ventures, I pursued my creative career as a Graphic Designer. As an intern, I designed brochures for Santa Fe College. At Group 5 Advertising, I had the pleasure of contributing to ads campaigns for companies like Cox Communications. At CAPT, my attention to detail paid off as I contributed to their book designs. But my all time favorite was working for the University of Florida, where I redesigned "The Post" and was the staff designer and photographer for the Health Science Center News & Communications department.
I love working with both buyers and sellers! I consider myself a perfectionist and have a careful eye for detail which comes as an asset to my customers and clients. I have a passion for pleasing and I'm a problem solver by nature. I'm always looking for a way to make things better, whether it’s finding a creative way to get an offer accepted, an inexpensive way to declutter and stage a home or a renovation to transform a house into the perfect home. Give me a challenge and I'll do what it takes to solve the problem.
I'm currently a USAA, Navy Federal and Cartus relocation specialist and work with VA financing for a majority of my buyers.
I'm a technology nerd by nature and love to learn. I'm currently on the 2018 Gainesville-Alachua County Association of Realtors Technology Committee, the Vice Chair of the Professional Development Committee and a member of the 2018 Leadership Development Team.
Giving back to my community is important to me and I support The Children’s Home Society, The Children’s Table, March for Babies, the Child Advocacy Center and a variety of other charities on an annual basis through food drives, toy drives and monetary donations.
I have a true passion for helping people, and there is no greater satisfaction than helping my customers and clients with one of the biggest financial decisions they will make in their lifetime...buying or selling their home. When I'm not selling real estate, I'm at the softball field with my daughter and husband...cheering on the most important people in my life!
I was looking to purchase a property for my daughter to live, as she will be attending the University of Florida in the fall. Lisa is extremely knowledgeable of the Gainesville area and in particular University of Florida, given she is alumni. Lisa listened to my needs and was extremely organized, she even asked which method of communication I preferred! Lisa quickly understood what I was looking for and used that information to proactively add/remove potential properties. Furthermore, my sister and I wanted to drive by some possible homes as we were coming to town. The night before, Lisa emailed me a list of potentials--in geographic order--so that our time was maximized. When we were to meet at various properties, she was always prompt and prepared. And while I was going through all of the emotions and different living options for my daughter, she remained ever-patient and understanding.
My sister and I have each bought and sold several houses over the years and have worked with many realtors, but we both agree that Lisa one of the (if not THE) most responsive, competent realtors with whom we have ever worked! We would highly recommend her!

Lisa found us our dream home. As new homeowners, we are so grateful for all her help. From basic house-owner knowledge to understanding what we wanted from the neighborhood and house to guiding us through the legal parts. I would absolutely recommend!
Lisa Baltozer did an excellent job helping us locate and purchase an investment property. She patiently walked with us through many homes throughout Gainesville and gave us guidance on suitability as a rental based off her experience with property management. We were pleased with her negotiation of the final selling price and the remaining steps to closing. Highly recommend!
