I was born in North Carolina and have lived in Florida for 16 years. After visiting Port Orange for more than 9 years, my family decided to call Port Orange home. My wife is a local photographer and we have a 10 year old daughter, a 6 year old son, and a 4 year old baby girl. Before becoming a Realtor; I spent 14 years with a Fortune 500 company; starting when I was 18 and working my way up to store manager at age 26. I moved close to ten times to benefit the company and help them grow. As store manager I managed over 200 employees and did annual sales volume of 60 million in metro market areas. I still use all of the great customer service skills, time management and professionalism I learned there. I also have a degree in Criminal Justice.
My tenacity and drive kept me going in this challenging market along with support from family and friends. With 30 closings last year, the market has definitely made a turn for the better. I was awarded 2009 Top Agent for my office. I work from Flagler Beach to New Smyrna Beach. Ormond Beach to Port Orange is my main area. I am REALTOR® who belongs to the Daytona Beach Area Association of REALTORS®, the Florida Association of REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS®. Recently certified in SFS(short sale and foreclosures). I think after we meet , you'll agree that there are not many dedicated Realtors like me. I work until the last detail is done. I am professional, prompt, always available, and ready to help you find your first home or a great investment.

We found Carlos simply by accident while surfing the internet looking for a "Home Away From Home" in Daytona Beach, FL. What a find he turned out to be for us! We actually bought without seeing the place in person. Why? Carlos gave us the impression, through our many e-mails and conversations back and forth, of his honesty & integrity that came through loud and clear. He sent several pictures, answered all of our questions accurately and went out of his way to be accomodating to our needs. We also believe that he performed a perfect balance between us and the seller. We believe that they're satisfied as well. If anyone out there needs a Realtor to make a purchase or sale, we would highly recommend Carlos Ring. Above all else, he's a man of his word and he'll serve you well.
Carlos is very polite plus knows the Market and what's AVAIL. INCL. WHO HAS MONEY TO LOAN. Soft Sell and never uses pressure for you to buy.Always one time and even better he will contact you as promised. No question that if I decided to sell Carlos is my man.

Carlos did a nice job of listing my home and keeping me informed about showings. He also kept me well informed when there was a contract and then through the closing process. I would use Carlos again if I had another home to list. Dennis Grimes Lakeland FL
Carlos Ring is a very good family man and a very good Realtor. A couple years ago I had been searching intently on MLS for a nice home. My girl friend had just made contact with Carlos via the internet and advised what we were looking for. Within a couple days Carlos found a short sale that we did not know of and wanted to buy it but it was too complicated. A couple days later Carlos was the first to find a new listing on MLS and it was the perfect house at a great price. We bought it on the spot. Since then I have sold the house and desired to rent. Carlos sent me what was available and I selected one and Carlos assisted me in getting it rented. I highly recommend Mr. Carlos Ring. Dale Tower, Daytona Beach Shores FL
Carlos was very helpful finding a great condo for me and my husband as a vacation home. He is not pushy or unrealistic which made us feel at ease during the process of looking at many units until we found the one we just purchased this year. Thanks again, Carlos

I am from out of state. Carlos helped me purchase a investment property in South Daytona. This was by no means a easy transaction for Carlos with me being out of state and the property being a foreclosure we had quite a few hurdles to jump. And knowing full well Carlos was handling a few other transactions at the same time. Every time I needed something from him he was there for me. By the time we were done with the sale Carlos was more like a friend than a Realtor. I would recommend Carlos to anyone looking for Real estate in the Daytona area. Dan Stang P.A.
Carlos listed and sold two homes for me in a matter of months. This guy is a true professional and understands the business. His networking and advertising skills can't be beat. Carlos always kept in close contact with me through the entire process. I work in the real estate industry and meet many Realtors.. If you want an HONEST professional Realtor that isn't just looking out for their commission.... you need to hire this guy.. down to earth..straight forward and the motivation to provide results..

Being that I am an out of State buyer, I had limited time to spend looking for that perfect place to call home! I am not the easiest kind to please and knowing the criteria of my needs, Carlos had set us up showings every day and took the extra time to revisit those I wanted to multiple times! By knowing the market through his diligent approach to research, Carlos not only did a remarkable job in my eyes, but made the experience a very enjoyable one! He definitely has the personality and the keen eye for the real-estate business for both the buyer and the seller in any price market, and that is why I would highly recommend Carlos for a job to be done to anyone's satisfaction.

Carlos is tenacious, trustworthy and has a great personality as well. We have been clients of Carlos for a year! He not only found our dream home, but sold our home in two months. We would highly recommend Carlos for all your real estate needs. D. Calpin Ormond Beach F.L.
Carlos executed a difficult short sale for me and my 107 year old house. The home was on the court house steps four times for sale. Carlos and his team stop the sale four times! He is very professional,prompt and well spoken. I would recommend him to anyone. My home was saved and now in the hands of the Heritage Trust and will be preserved. R. Harty South Daytona F.L.
Carlos did a great job conducting the short sale of my property in South Daytona. His availability and market knowledge was extremely helpful through the process. I will definitely use his services again when buying or selling in the future. Whitney R. Port Orange F.L.
"Carlos, Thank you once again for helping us purchase the ocean side condo. We appreciate your patience in working with us on our initial choice. It was a long 6 months working with the seller in attempting to get the title problems cured. When the seller finally decided that the problems could not be resolved in the near term, you worked with us in finding and purchasing the condo that we now enjoy. We are extremely pleased with the condo. Linda is absolutely convinced that this unit is better than the first one, and I agree. Thanks for your capable assistance."

"Our first home purchase was made possible because of the help from Carlos Ring; a nice, determined, and caring family man. The communication between my wife, me, and Carlos was not very fluid because of the large language barrier, but Carlos never gave up looking for a home for our family. Carlos was very kind to meet us whenever it was convenient for us and sometimes not for him; even when it meant he had to show homes at eight in the morning before we went to work. I don’t know how many realtors would have put the amount of time Carlos put in to help us find a home to fit our needs and our budget. It took us almost a year to find a home, and we couldn’t have done it without him. I would highly recommended Carlos to future families and friends."

"To Whom it may concern, I was recently shopping for homes with my fiancé and had asked for the professional help of Carlos Ring to help us find the perfect home. From the beginning Carlos was courteous and professional in his approach. As we were being taken through all of the homes in our price range, there were so many that I wanted to see, and this was not a problem with Carlos. He just suited up, set a day that was convenient for us and went at it. We must have looked at 30 homes to find the perfect one. Carlos was so good at keeping us positive during our quest for the home for us, that it was hard to be discouraged. I truly commend Mr. Ring's service for being a patient realtor that was absolutely looking out for our best interest, not his. At the end, we found our home and things went smoothly, and my fiancé and I are living in our new home and expecting our first baby shortly. Just in time to get the little ones room in shape. Thanks again Carlos. Sincerely,"
"My wife and I purchased a condo as a second home with Carlos Ring as our realtor. He was there with us every step of the way. This process took over six months and Carlos was very patient the whole way. He negotiation skills got us the condo under market value. He is caring and easy to work with. His exceptional personal service provided certainly should be commended. I would recommend Carlos Ring to anyone purchasing Real Estate in the Volusia County area."

"Love to Carlos! I have had nothing but positive experience with Carlos Ring. Carlos is always very professional and curious. He always answers my questions without any hesitation what so ever. I have never had a problem with contacting him, he is always there for me if I need anything from him. I look forward to doing business with Carlos again, don't think that I would want to do business with anyone but Carlos! Thanks"
"Hi Aswin, you are a wonderfully tenacious man! With this crazy market, we finally prevailed~but only through your hard work and dedication to make this sale happen. You and Carlos are quite a team; professional, knowledgeable and determined. I don’t think there are many realtors who have these qualities in these trying times. Bill and I are grateful for your patience and help through this long and arduous sale. I happily tell my friends and associates that the only realtor to use in Volusia County is Aswin Suri and team! No wonder why so many people know you throughout the area...you make things happen! Thanks for everything. As soon as our 6 winning lottery numbers come in …we’ll be back to buy a beach front house in Volusia county and you’ll be the realtor! Thanks!"

I appreciate putting up with all of the Uncertainties and my many, many phone calls. You were always professional and courteous. I wish you best of luck . You are on the top my referral's list."
"Dear Carlos, Donna and I just wanted to thank you for all of your help this year. You have always been there when we needed you to answer questions, about properties, neighborhoods, and other details. You are very knowledgeable about real estate and our experiences with you have been nothing but professional We wish you all the best in 2010, and look forward to a continued successful business relationship."

"Last year our mortgage payments on 925 Halifax, Unit 1007, became delinquent. The property was an exquisite 2 bedroom convertible with 2 baths in a clean, established, secure building, Bayshore Bath & Tennis club on the east shore of the ICW, two blocks from the ocean with underground parking. We had paid $253,000 for the unit in September, 2005. Continual failures to sell the property at any reasonable price led us to an agreement with the lender allowing us to try for a short sale.
In our many years as brokers, we had no experience with short sales (yet) and we turned to one of our agents, Carlos Ring – in effect telling him "Please, take care of this!"
From that moment until the short sale occurred in September of 2009, Carlos took care of everything – contacting us only when some form or another had to be filled in or signed. He listed the property, placed the listing in MLS, negotiated with potential buyers and with the lender’s loss mitigation officer and finally brought these negotiations to a conclusion satisfactory to everyone involved.
We cannot praise Carlos too highly and recommend him without qualification to handle your investments, conventional sales, short sales (or REO’s)."

Carlos, the process of searching for a property from over a thousand miles away, seemed like an ominous task until we met you. We tried several Daytona area Realtors and none seemed to take us seriously, at least, they didn’t respond to our requests for assistance. You immediately replied to our emails, and demonstrated your experience and knowledge of local real estate by sending us numerous examples of sale properties over the internet. When we traveled to Florida to see some of these properties, you were on top of all the new listings and steered us in the right direction. Thank-you for being so patient, thorough, friendly and available! We’ve purchased a retirement home that we are so excited about! Carlos, your unassuming confidence put us at ease and helped us negotiate one of the biggest decisions in our lives. It turned out to be a wonderful experience that was as memorable as it was fun and exciting. Now that we’ve had the opportunity to use our new property several times we know that we made the right choice and we couldn’t be happier! Thanks for everything!
