Phone Scam!

You may receive a call from a company calling themselves Energy Savers (this is not the bona fide company Energy Savers of Florida)They may offer a “free” inspection of homes for energy savings.

This is a scam and is in no way affiliated with the Energy Savers of Florida.

On Top of the World alert


It has come to our attention that some homeowners have received phone calls from a company claiming to represent the “Florida PACE Program”. They are quoting fees for loans at 6% of the home value and 6% closing cost. This is absolutely not the AllianceNRG Program™ and should not be considered a viable loan option for our homeowners.

K9 OTOW introduced to Ken Colen of On Top of the World Communities.


K9 OTOW introduced to Ken Colen of On Top of the World Communities.Through the generous community spirit of the Entertainment Group and a private foundation the necessary funds to purchase a green (untrained) law enforcement K-9 for the Marion County Sheriff’s Office were acquired. A police dog (often referred to as K-9) is specifically trained to assist police in their work. Their duties include suspect apprehension, searching for drugs, explosives, lost people and crime scene evidence plus the all-important duty of protecting their handlers. These specially trained K-9s often cost anywhere from $8,000 to $10,000. The new addition to the Sheriff’s Office is an energetic 14-month old sable German shepherd recently brought over from Germany. The K-9, now paired with Deputy Matt Bowers, replaces the deputy’s former K-9 partner “Cadet” who unfortunately retired recently due to medical issues. To show their thanks to the residents of On Top of the World, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office has officially named the K-9 “OTOW.” “OTOW” has already begun the additional training he needs to prepare him for his important job of serving and protecting the citizens of Marion County. On Wednesday, January 18, 2017, Kenneth Colen, President of On Top of the World Communities, Inc., along with several members of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office held a “meet and greet” to introduce K-9 Officer “OTOW” to the community.

Please Stay Out Of Homes That Are Under Construction

We ask that all residents please stay out of homes that are under construction.  Not only is it a potential safety hazard but it is also considered trespassing. It is best to stay off the property if a home is empty as well as trade contractors are or are not present and working inside or outside the home.  In conclusion,  we ask that you DO NOT  enter any of the homes under construction, regardless of their state of completion. Please visit our model homes for touring guests. 


Thank you in advance for your cooperation and respect for others property and new neighbors in On Top of the World.
