Welcome & Thank You For Visiting!

Hi there, and welcome to our site. I am residential REALTOR® Dawn Van Meter with Keller Williams Realty Smart 1, and my team and I work with ALL buyers and sellers in and around Polk County, Florida. Ranked in the top 8% of our market center and with sales experience spanning over 25 years, I am your go-to real estate expert. I’m proud to work with my team at Keller Williams where experienced agents demonstrate a history of professional work ethics, buyer and seller negotiation skills, and a strong focus on customer service.

Winter Haven shares a metropolitan area with Lakeland in Polk County in the Tampa Bay Area of Florida. With 50 lakes large and small within and surrounding the city, there’s a reason it’s called “the Chain of Lakes City!” Yet other visitors and residents identify Winter Haven as home to Legoland Florida. Lakeland is the largest Polk County city with an economy focusing on citrus, cattle, and phosphate mining industries, among several others. Here, you’ll find many lakes as well, along with historic districts, parks, attractions, points of interest, and higher education institutions.

Ready to Work for You!

Building relationships with people is essential when helping them buy, sell, and build wealth with real estate. Through the process of establishing rapport and educating while guiding clients through the steps of the buying and selling process, this is accomplished. As a longtime Polk County resident, I’m familiar with its many communities, and that makes it much easier to share my knowledge and expertise with newcomers and current residents alike. My team has connections to every service provider, from landscapers and painters to lenders, stagers, electricians, and remodelers. We offer our sellers maximum exposure and effort with drone photos, 360 tours, print and social media, single-property websites, and more. A portion of all our team sales goes to KW Kids Care and KW Cares, 2 great causes within our Keller Williams family.
