Behind the Gator Rated Name

Perhaps now it’s time for a little backstory on Gator Rated’s name. This one won’t be too hard to crack. Our state is home to millions of alligators thanks to our lush Everglades and various swamp lands.

Between Louisiana and Florida, there are millions upon millions of alligators in this region. With that being said, these creatures give Florida its nickname and mascot!

Keeping the community strong with an emphasis on good business etiquette and outstanding service is our priority. We feel honored to have this role and take it on with great pride.

In-Depth Research & Reporting

For example, if you need to know whether that real estate agency is the best one to list your home with, we will give you the inside scoop.

We are thorough and in-depth with each entry, ensuring quality is the best it can be. Our information is always in-depth, transparent, and holds credibility amongst the community.

Gator Rated takes the validity of our articles very seriously and will always keep our readers up to date with honest, credible reporting.

Not only do we provide the opportunity to post comments on Gator Rated, but we also encourage the exchange of opinions between users. We want our users to feel comfortable interacting with other Floridians and create a productive dialogue on local businesses.
