Altamonte Springs Real Estate
Altamonte Springs, Fl. – A hub in Seminole County. I transplanted my family to Central Florida in 1980. This was a city that had it all. It had a great mall and was easily accessed from Orlando or the coasts by Interstate 4. It had great schools, hospitals and most importantly, people. The area was also urban enough to provide a family with all that was needed to live comfortably and rural enough so that you were able to enjoy nature and all its beauty.
Altamonte Springs had affordable housing for all ages and social classes.
