Chad Vaughan

Like many agents, Chad came to real estate after a number of different career paths. In 2018, after recently moving to Orlando from South Florida, he started in real estate. For about two years, after working as a dual career agent, and building a business almost exclusively through Instagram, he left his 9-5 to pursue real estate full time. Chad works as a solo agent covering Central Florida, focusing on Orlando and Saint Cloud. Chad lives in Saint Cloud with his wife and two daughters.
