Where we are
We are located in the heart of Florida - about one hour from Orlando, Gainesville and Tampa - bordering The Villages, the nation's fastest growing retirement community.
What we believe
Oxford Land Company's Creed: That I do whatever I can for my neighbor's good, that I treat others as I would like them to treat me, and that I work faithfully so that I may share with those in need. From The Heidelberg Catechism # 110 - 111.
We love our community and its people and strive to be involved in activities that will serve to help in the present and to preserve our heritage. Once a small farming town, Oxford has grown in leaps and bounds thanks to our neighbor, The Villages. Oxford Land Company participates each year, by providing a fun hayride, in the Oxford Fall Festival - the proceeds of which go to maintain our historic Pine Level Cemetery.
Our Broker is an avid historian, who has collected many old photographs and writings concerning Oxford, Sumter County and Florida. He is also Chairman of the Local Salvation Army Council, working to make a positive impact on our community and sits on the board of the PLCA.
Terry Crenshaw, our Vice President and a Broker/Associate, is Vice President of RLI, Florida Chapter and was active in the Sumter County Economic Development Council. Jim Mariucci, one of our Sales Associates, is a former educator who remains involved in our local schools. Jim is President-elect of the Realtors® Association of Lake & Sumter Counties.
