My name is Waymon Ellis Meadows, friends call me W or Big W. I am a real estate broker and builder who has lived in Florida all my life. In 1974, I started building single-family homes, designing and developing communities (Spanish Haven, Winter Haven and more) in Polk County, Fl. I help buyers,sellers, and investors find great deals on the market.
I know Polk County like the back of my hand. Born on Orange Street in Auburndale, raised on Plymouth Road, I have lived in Dundee for more than 40 years. Truth is, I know every town and back road in Polk County, from Alturas to Winter Haven.
If there’s one thing I have learned, over the decades, it’s that real estate is the best investment for anyone. It has always been my belief that real estate helps everyone, and some even get their own from-rags-to-riches story.
Consider me old, but my extensive experience has helped me make wise decisions easily. From financing to closing statements, I can hold your hand from start to finish until you get what you want.
If you allow me, I’ll be your advocate at the closing table. I know the trick of the sharks in the trade. Attorney Stephen F. Baker, Lamanda Jones, Sid Porter former bank president and owner of investment properties in Lake Wales. Lamanda is President of Realtor Association to help with any problems. Steve is the best real estate attorney in Winter Haven," Waymon is easy to work with; will always look out for you." His motto, “I would rather give a client a dollar than to beat him/her out of a penny.”
Taking a short break from being a businessman, I became Mayor of Dundee. During my tenure, the town was financially plush due to a conservative city manager and philosophy to “watch the pennies; the dollar will take care of themselves.”
Some of my achievements include negotiating the price of property for Polk to build Dundee Ridge Middle School and East Polk Recreational complex. In addition, I served for seven years on the Polk County Board of Adjustment.
As a God-centered person, I know the impossible takes only a little more time and believe nothing is too hard for God. Like I always say, “Is anything too hard for the Lord?”
For years, I served a mission for the church, living every minute for two years in the states of Oregon and Washington. I believe paying tithes and offerings are an honor and responsibility to help spread the Word and take care of the poor. While mayor of Dundee, I helped neighbors, whom I consider brothers and sisters.
