When Missy Zecher isn’t helping North Florida residents find the houses of their dreams, the 2013 “Realtor of the Year” is busy seeking out unique outdoor activities for the family.
A native of Jacksonville Beach and current Lake City resident,Zecher obtained her real estate license in 2007 and joined Re/Max in 2009. For many of those years, she has been the Lake City Board of Realtors’ top residential producer, was named the 2013 “Realtor of the Year” and, in 2015, was ranked #9 in sales volume amongst Re/Max agents throughout Florida.
She’s been voted Best of the Best since 2011 and was inducted into the Re/Max Hall of Fame in 2013. Missy received the Re/Max Lifetime Achievement Award in June of this year (2016). She’s also very active with our local MLS Board serving as 2015 President and is currently an active Board Member.
She’s successful, in part, because she loves what she does.
“This is what I like to do,” Zecher said. “In this business, you have to have someone you know and trust, someone who has your best interest in mind. This is a relationship business – you’re referred because someone is pleased with the work you’ve done in the past. And my job is to make sure that home buyers and sellers are well represented and make it as stress free as I possibly can.”
Doing that means having the knowledge that can be passed on to home buyers and sellers, finding a way to make an incredibly stressful process, easier.
“What I’ve really found is that I’m not a salesperson,” Zecher said. “People are going to buy houses every day of the week, but who are they going to use? My niche is being as educated as possible to guide and better prepare my buyers and sellers in the decisions they’re going to make.”
During this process, Zecher has a team available for questions and answers, a team that can help buyers and sellers through one of the “most stressful times in their lives.”
“Let us help you navigate the waters that are so full of questions,” she said. “You’re never going to buy or sell something more expensive, so you need someone involved in all areas to hold your hand through that transaction. At the end of the day, they make the decision and you just provide the information to them.
“I love what I do and I love to tell people who are moving into the area why Lake City is so great,” Zecher said.
When Zecher isn’t putting in hours of hard work into the real estate business, she is usually preparing for an outdoor excursion with her husband, Bryan, and their children.
“On any given weekend, the Zechers are out somewhere during the summer – on the boat, in the water, trying to keep ourselves entertained,” she said. “Our boys love to do anything on the water – watersports, skiing, wakeboarding. And two years ago, we purchased a camper and have absolutely fallen in love with it. We just find absolutely any reason we can to get outside; we don’t go on long excursions, because with my business we can’t go much further than a few days at a time – but we take day trips as often as we can.”
That love for the outdoors led Zecher to Outdoors 360. As one of Outdoors 360’s newest sponsors, Zecher said she was drawn to the media brand because of its innovative ideas and content.
“Being an entrepreneur myself, I think it’s absolutely important and courageous to have a startup business,” she said. “Knowing Rob (Chapman, Outdoors 360 founder) and the clean content he provides through Outdoors 360, it’s a great, family-friendly website.”

5 Tuesday’s in a row!! I’m excited to announce Missy Warner Zecher as our newest partner with Outdoors360 ?? Missy and Bryan Zecher have been big supporters of ours for a while, and she’s an AMAZING realtor – Missy was #9 in the entire state of Florida for ReMax, which is truly remarkable for a rural region. She’s helped my parents multiple times from selling property, buying property, and even renting! Missy, Bryan and the entire family will bring a new angle to Outdoors360. They love to fish, but we’re EVERYTHING outdoors…and they’re experts at glamping/camping ? Additionally they’re experts in what to look for in property, houses, and much more. We have so many changes happening so quickly, and I’m so grateful for the overwhelming support of our outdoor startup. We’re trying to crawl before we walk, so we’ll continue to grow and change methodically with a big vision in mind. #outdoors360 #missyzecher #remax #teamzecher #startup #website #dream
