Information and latest news about The Deltona Corporation, Homes by Deltona and new home construction.

On Friday, December 7th, 2018 the Homes by Deltona staff celebrated a "Holly Jolly Christmas Party"...

JT's Seafood Shack in Palm Coast was the setting for this year's party. The fabulous crew at JT's pulled out all the stops in creating a welcoming, festive dining experience. With white linen tablecloths and festive holiday poinsettias, it was beginning to feel a lot like...well...a Christmas Party! Upon arrival to the party, everyone ordered cocktails and took their seats. After a welcoming toast, everyone was asked to stand and read their Christmas cards, which were written with a personal holiday message inside. The Christmas cards were a huge hit and no one got their "Tinsel in a Tangle"!

Now, let me tell you about the food! We started off with appetizers...Garlic & Parmesan Wings, Calamari, and platters of Onion Rings. I can't begin to tell you how delicious the appetizers were! While everyone mingled and enjoyed their cocktails, the Chef was preparing Grilled Salmon, Blackened Mahi Mahi, Baby Back Ribs, Shrimp & Grits, and Seafood Platters. Can you say yummy? If you haven't visited JT's Seafood Shack in Palm Coast, then you definitely should add it to your bucket list!

No Christmas Party is complete without a few "Reindeer Games" and this party was no exception! After our meal, everyone was divided into two teams, the 'Trim A Tree' team or the 'Build A Snowman' team. We held a drawing to see who would be the 'Tree' and who would be the 'Snowman'. Once that was decided we provided each team with the materials to complete their task. "Oh, what fun it is to laugh" and watch everyone who participated in this "team-building exercise". LOL! Check out the photos and treat yourself to a Holly Jolly chuckle!

We then played "Dirty Santa", which is similar to the "White Elephant" game, where everyone takes a turn choosing a wrapped Christmas gift or steals a previously opened gift from their 'used to be favorite co-worker'. Hey! Don't take my "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" pajamas!

From our family to yours...Merry Christmas!

Deltona hosted their annual Thanksgiving luncheon in conjunction with the Women's Council of Realtors to benefit the Ocala Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Center. The benefit luncheon had a great turn out and the food was fantastic as always.

Our local realtors and affiliates really stepped up and donated much needed items for those at the center, along with the proceeds from the many baskets that were raffled off.

With all that's going on in this world, it is so good to see people helping people and our realtors and affiliates can always be counted on to come through and make things happen.


Thank you to all who attended, donated, and participated in this very worthy cause for a facility that often gets overlooked at the holidays.

Laterra Links had the honor of serving lunch for the Realtors during the NEFAR Caravan Tour that took place on Thursday, October 11th.  Several times a year the Northeast Florida Multiple Listing Service holds a Caravan tour that allows area Realtors to get a good look at some of the available inventory.  This is a great way to preview properties that may fit the needs of current and future prospects.

The event took place in one of the finished Pebble Beach inventory homes.  This move-in ready home features 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths with a 2+ car attached garage and private elevator.  The beautiful, spacious Pebble Beach floor plan (2,681 square foot) home has 10’-14’ ceilings and lots of windows -- all condos are corners at Laterra Links.
