I have found much joy spending time with my husband and two children, as well as my beloved family that calls Ocala ‘home’.  When time permits, I enjoy playing the piano, gardening, reading, painting, and traveling.

Joao Cappellano



Hello! my name is Joao Cappellano. I grew up in Palm Beach County, FL and have lived in several areas in central and north central FL. My wife and I chose Marion County after I began a career in the fire service (Firefighter).  We love to enjoy nature at its fullest here by taking our kayaks out to Rainbow River, Silver Springs State Park, amongst many more. We love to go to the amazing Greenway trail for biking, hiking, running, and even horseback riding.  Ocala is the horse capital of the world, we both grew up with experience around horses and now live on a mini farm with our horses! 

I joined the fire service because I enjoy helping people and it also taught me to be creative when it comes to solving problems. I will use these skills while helping you to purchase or list your property at a great value.  I have a passion for investing in real estate and finding ways to add value to homes. I bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm to the real estate industry!

Let me help get you into your dream home or into your next investment property.

Alex Hernandez



My name is Alex Hernandez. I was born and raised in Miami FL so I am bilingual in Spanish. I have been calling Ocala home since 2018 and it's where I have begun my real estate career. It became apparent to me that real estate would be a good fit for me having worked from the moment I arrived in Ocala in an apartment complex helping residents find their perfect apartment home that I would love to assist people in finding their forever home.

In my spare time I like to go kayaking down the rainbow river, going to the Ocala National Park and being engrossed in the natural beauty Ocala and Marion County has to offer to the people that call it home 

The first thing that became apparent to me once I moved was the growth and development Ocala has been having and I'd be more than happy to show you all Ocala has to offer as a home and as a community.
