A Little About Me

Hello, I'm Sai Dholakia, your trusted real estate agent with a diverse background and a wealth of experience in the ever-evolving world of real estate. Born and raised in Augusta, Georgia, a city renowned for the prestigious Master's Golf Tournament, I have always been surrounded by a strong sense of community and a deep appreciation for the beauty of the Southern landscape.

My journey into the real estate industry is marked by a unique blend of skills and experiences. With a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Computer Art from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), I honed my craft as a skilled digital media artist and even shared my knowledge by teaching animation and digital media classes at various colleges for a decade. My academic pursuits also led me to earn a Master of Science in Information Systems from Texas A&M University, allowing me to gain valuable insights from the tech world during my tenure in the IT field.

However, my passion for real estate was ignited during my time in bustling metropolitan cities such as Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Austin. The dynamic real estate markets of these cities captivated my interest, prompting me to transition into the industry. In 2016, I embarked on my real estate career in Georgia, and in 2017, I seized the opportunity to work as a new home consultant with Maronda Homes Tampa Division. This marked the beginning of my journey in new home sales. As the community manager for the Hampton Hills Townhomes in Lakeland, Florida, I had the privilege of helping numerous clients find their dream homes, whether they were embarking on the exciting journey of homeownership or settling into their well-deserved retirement abode.

My success with Maronda Homes paved the way for me to join the Holiday Builders Ocala Division in 2021, where I continued to excel as a new home consultant. I've had the pleasure of guiding happy buyers to their new homes in the Kingsland and Marion Oaks communities of Ocala, Florida. An important aspect of my role with Holiday Builders was becoming a "scattered lots expert" due to the unique nature of these Ocala communities. Dealing with scattered lots is significantly different from selling in a master planned development, and this expertise has been instrumental in helping my clients navigate the intricacies of these markets. Additionally, I've assisted past clients in making transitions, whether it's upgrading to a newer home or expertly listing their existing properties.

Beyond my real estate career, I am an ardent nature enthusiast, often finding solace and inspiration during leisurely walks through parks, trails, and beaches. My favorites include Sholom Park and the World Equestrian Center. Additionally, I have a deep appreciation for culinary arts, both as a home cook and an explorer of new restaurants and fine dining establishments. I am also an avid reader, writer, and artist, finding creative fulfillment in the written word and visual expressions.

If you're in the market for a new home or looking to sell your current property, look no further. I am dedicated to helping you meet your real estate needs and ensuring a smooth and satisfying journey. Let's embark on this adventure together.
