Rick Singh Report

Fiesta in the Park at Lake Eola

OCPA was happy to participate in the 2017 Fiesta in the Park at Lake Eola. We engaged a number of residents about services offered through our office, such as Homestead and Veterans Exemptions.

Since 2013, we have participated in over 800 community events, and we're always thrilled at the chance to mingle with residents about how our office can be of assistance.

Veterans Day Parade

We enjoyed our time at the 2017 Veterans Day Parade in Downtown Orlando. Honoring veterans for their hard work and service to our country, we give a big thank you to all of our Veterans, including Orange County Property Appraiser Rick Singh, a proud veteran of the United States Army!

New Art In Our Lobby

OCPA has a new featured artist on display in our customer service lobby. The diverse artwork of Joy Hayes, a local artist, is being presented for the remainder of 2017. Be sure to stop by our office soon to peruse the art selection displayed in our lobby.

Toys for Tots

Once again this year, our office is collecting gifts for children through Toys for Tots. Started in 1947 and run by the United States Marine Corps, Toys for Tots distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. We are excited to participate in this wonderful program that benefits our community.

What We Are Thankful For

In case you missed it: This holiday season, as we take time to remember all the things we have to be thankful for, we asked our staff what they are grateful for this holiday season.

Homestead Exemption Season

Did you know that having a Homestead exemption can reduce the taxable value of your home by as much as $50,000? Florida Law allows everyone who has legal or equitable title to real estate and maintains it as their permanent residence to apply for a homestead property tax exemption. The deadline to file an exemption application is March 1st.

OCPA will soon host a series of Homestead Satellite offices throughout Orange County to assist the community in filing applications to save money on property taxes. A detailed Satellite Office schedule will be available in December.

November Employee Of The Month

Robert Sabato, Outreach/Customer Service Specialist, is our November Employee of the Month! Robert is the embodiment of our agency's mantra: "a customer is the most important visitor on our premises...we are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so." We are proud to have Robert as a member of our team!

Success at Work

Orange County Property Appraiser Customer Service Specialist Adam Gigliotti was recently featured in the Independent Living Services Advisory Council's Annual Report. Adam is part of a team that has earned a customer satisfaction rating of 99.8% and features an average wait time of just 2 1/2 minutes when visiting our lobby. Rick Singh is extremely proud of Adam and is glad to have him as a member of our team! Congratulations, Adam!

New President of East Florida Chapter of the Appraisal Institute

We are proud to share the achievement of Ana Arroyo, OCPA's Commercial Real Estate Manager, who was recently named President of the East Florida Chapter of the Appraisal Institute.

This chapter comprises over 300 real estate professional who exhibit "a higher level of competence than the minimum standards required of appraisers who are solely licensed or certified, our Appraisal Institute Designated Members, Candidates for Designation, and Practicing Affiliates are committed to upholding a rigorous code of ethics." Congratulations, Ana!
