jacksonville beach fl: What Did It Sell For? Jacksonvile Beach, FL - 03/15/15 09:18 PM
I've always enjoyed "checking" myself and the market.
You know, you see something for sale, and you think (either internally or externally) "No way!"
I toured this foreclosure property in Jacksonville Beach twice over the past weekend at the request of two buyers who were interested.
This particular price does not appear at the beach often at all, much less for a single family house: it's listed for $150K. 
This is a 3 bedroom,  1 bathroom home with about 1800 SF. Originally built in 1954, a large portion of the space is in an addition that looks … (6 comments)

jacksonville beach fl: Spring Into A New Attitude! - 03/16/14 10:02 AM
I love spring. ABSOLUTELY love spring.
Here in Jacksonville Beach, FL, we get spring a little bit differently than others: some years we have a great long spring, other years we have  a very short spring, and go right into Simmer Season. No, that is not a typo: our summers are simmer time to me. It's hot, humid, and if there is no sea breeze, you feel tres warm.
I see spring as most others do: a time for renewal, re-engagement, re-energize. It's almost impossible not to with the birds chirping, the trees & plants showing their green sprigs of new … (10 comments)

jacksonville beach fl: Out With The Old, In With The New! - 01/30/14 03:06 AM
As some of you may be aware, Prudential Network Realty in Jacksonville & St. Augustine, Florida is now Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty.
We had our annual company meeting yesterday at the Touchdown Terrace of Everbank Field, and it was fabulous to see our "old" sign on the stadium's Jumbotron change to our "new" sign of BHHS Florida Network Realty.
The energy in the room was incredible, partly due to some incredible statistics (for example, PNR was up 41% year over year in luxury listings, while the MLS was up 21% by comparison), and partly due to the brand launch.

jacksonville beach fl: Eviction Notice, Part 6, Neptune Beach, FL - 04/17/13 04:19 AM
I met with one of my buyers on this house (links to prior blogs are below) to present two offers on her condo, and then we discussed where they were in the process of defending a "quiet title" suit on the house they just closed on in mid-February of this year.
They had consulted with an attorney, and they now have another attorney, who was hired by the title insurance company.
They still have zero resolution: their attorney stated it could/should take 6-8 weeks to clear up, and gain clear title to the house. The second attorney states it might take … (1 comments)

jacksonville beach fl: Eviction Notice, Part 5, Neptune Beach, FL - 04/09/13 12:07 AM
Recap: I helped buyers (engaged, he in the process of moving here from out of state) purchase a home in Neptune Beach, FL. We closed 2/15/13, and she gave birth on 3/1/13. On 3/8/13, she was served with eviction notices.
Since my buyer could not be at the attorney's office, I drove her check down there, and was in his office when we did the conference call.  I have to say, while I was sitting there, and seeing the research they had pulled from our Clerk of The Courts, I could not help but feel as though I had missed something.

jacksonville beach fl: Happy Easter! - 03/31/13 04:09 AM
I was fortunate enough to be able to attend Sunrise Service, oceanfront again this year, and capture this shot of the sunrise as I was leaving the service - I hope everyone had a fabulous Easter morning, and is enjoying the day!


jacksonville beach fl: Eviction Notice, Part 4, Neptune Beach, FL - 03/11/13 10:39 PM
As you may recall, I had a buyer close on a house in Neptune Beach, FL, mid February; they are engaged, and he is in the process of moving down here. They just had their first child, and three weeks after closing, she was greeted with eviction notices on her new home.
Since I had involved the title company who closed the purchase, the attorney asked me to secure the Title Commitment Letter, so I emailed them that request, stating the attorney the buyer had retained was requesting it ASAP.  (side-note: I've ALWAYS wanted to be an attorney, so I love to … (7 comments)

jacksonville beach fl: Eviction Notice, Part 3, Neptune Beach, FL - 03/10/13 10:10 PM
A buyer/ of mine, with a week old baby was served with eviction notices 3 weeks after closing on her new home.
As part of my assistance, I took photos of the notice, and emailed them to the title company to alert them we had an issue; after all, we could not have closed if there were any clouds on the title.
The title company responded to me that the file and notice had been elevated to the company president, and he reached out to the legal firm that generated the eviction notice.
This, combined with the homeowner having called the … (3 comments)

jacksonville beach fl: Eviction Notice, Part 2, Neptune Beach, FL - 03/09/13 11:18 PM
I met with the buyer at her house to see the eviction notice, and confirm who had served it. I took photos as well, to have copies for my files. (LOVE the iPad!)
I had already emailed the local assocation's legal counsel with a thumbnail sketch of the situation to get his input.  (See? Being involved in the local association has major bennies!)
I reiterated to her again to not worry, we would at the very least accomplish two things: 
Get a stay (extension) on the writ of possession. Find our next steps once the legal counsel had replied to me.  … (3 comments)

jacksonville beach fl: Eviction Notice - Part 1, Neptune Beach, FL - 03/08/13 10:13 PM
My day started off great yesterday: good workout at the gym, wonderful breakfast.
And, then, the phone call.
My buyer/s (engaged, she's here in FL, he's in the process of moving here) bought and closed on a house in Neptune Beach, FL on 2/15/13. 
She gave birth a week ago. 
Yesterday, eviction notices were posted to her doors. She was absolutely astonished, and called me to ask for my help. 
Now, I've not encountered this exact situation previously, so my first words were "Relax. It's most likely a misunderstanding. I'll be there within the hour, and we'll figure out a course of … (12 comments)

jacksonville beach fl: Mezza Luna Italian Restaurant, Neptune Beach, FL - 03/07/13 06:33 AM
I stopped into Mezza Luna the other day, a wonderful Italian eatery in Neptune Beach, really because I had to pick up something next door. I hadn't been in to see them for a while, and was pleasantly surprised to see they had made some changes to the place: they used to have two entrances (odd for a restaurant), on that opened into the parking lot (shared with other establishments & City Hall), and one that opened onto First Street.
More patrons were coming in from the parking lot, so they decided to close the other entrance, which allows them the … (2 comments)

jacksonville beach fl: Jacksonville Beach, Fourth of July Fireworks Return! - 03/04/13 09:55 PM
I know for many the Fourth of July is far off, and makes one think of ice cream, and the summer heat....yes, even here in Jacksonville Beach, FL we are chilly (although not mitten-state chilly!), and this is great news: we will have fireworks this Fourth of July.
I blogged about the lack of fireworks in 2012, mainly due to safety concerns: Jacksonville Beach is the largest of the beach communities, and we get the most visitors from other parts of Jacksonville, as well as tourists.  Traffic, and public safety comes to mind when you host a fireworks display, and viewers … (5 comments)

jacksonville beach fl: Annual Springing The Blues Festival, Jacksonville Beach, FL - 02/24/13 09:48 AM
If you have been in the past, or have not been at all, this is a wonderful Blues festival that comes through Jacksonville Beach annually. It is free to the public, there are many different vendors & of course, food and beverages are available.
How many blues festivals (or any musical genre, for that matter) have you attended where you can enjoy the sun, the ocean, and great music all in one location??

jacksonville beach fl: Robtic Surgery Equipment, Jacksonville, FL - 02/23/13 05:15 AM
One of the things I love the most about being active in the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce is the cool stuff we get to do at our events.
I rarely attend the monthly morning networking meeting, Coffee On The Coast, as it conflicts with a weekly Realtors meeting, but this month it was on a Friday.
Hosted at Beaches Baptist, which has expanded incredibly in the past few years, I got to "pretend" I was the surgeon with a robotic surgical station. Pictures are below; I was amazed at how small the instruments were, and how easily manipulated with minimal finger movements. 
Bringing robotic surgery … (0 comments)

jacksonville beach fl: Restaurant Changes, Jacksonville Beach, FL - 02/22/13 12:37 AM
As a fan of dining out, I'm always interested in new restaurants opening at the beaches, and thought I'd share a few of the recent changes we're seeing:
Mambo's Cuban Bistro has remodeled, and reopened as Cocina Latin American Fusion. I've eaten at Mambo's the food was good, so this location on 3rd Street should do well with little menu competition. There is rooftop parking in this building, so don't be put off by any parking challenges on the street. La Nopalera is now open a bit further south on 3rd Street; they have fabulous Mexican cuisine, and have 9 other … (2 comments)
