ponte vedra beach: I'm SO Good ! - 06/11/14 05:06 AM

 
 
I have had two recent experiences that are amazingly similar.
One was a $50K condo foreclosure that my buyer won on the highest & best, and was in danger of not closing.
The other was a couple from Tallahassee looking for a retirement place here in Atlantic Beach in the $600K+ price range.
So, what's so similar?
Both came via online source, and started with texting.
The other similarity?
Both women in each scenario have now decided to take the state real estate course, and get their license. 
I'm so good, I'm converting buyers into Realtors!

ponte vedra beach: The Player's Championship, Ponte Vedra Beach, FlL 5/8-5/11/14 - 04/11/14 12:04 AM
For those of us who live here in the Jacksonville, FL/Ponte Vedra/St. Augustine area, we know when The Player's Championship is coming - since the event moved from March a number of years ago, it's always the second weekend in May - which makes for an interesting Mother's Day every few years.
This is an incredible event - representatives from The Player's Championship spoke at our Chamber luncheon yesterday, and I learned a few things I had not known before. For example, the television broadcast reaches into 850 million households all over the globe.
If you have not been, I encourage … (2 comments)

ponte vedra beach: What Did It Sell For? - 03/28/14 05:41 AM
 

I know there are skeptics in the world. They don't believe that house isn't for sale, they don't believe it will sell for more than list price, they don't belive in offering full price.
I thought it might be interesting to occasionally go back and post about a house that sold.
We had the following listing in our local MLS:
Property needs to be demolished has extensive fire damage however does include detached garage and inground pool. Buyer accepts all liability of any violations. Do not trespass on the property anyone that trespasses will accept all liabilities of any … (19 comments)

ponte vedra beach: Spring Has Sprung At The Beach! The Cyclists Are Out In Full Force! - 03/10/14 02:47 AM
I know I enjoyed our weather here at the Jacksonville Beaches in Florida this past weekend - it was our first sunny days in the past week, after a week of Nor'easter weather kept us in rain and cloudy skies.
First Street from Ponte Vedra Beach to Atlantic Beach was packed with cyclists, pedestrians, moms with babies in strollers, and skateboarders.
It's important for those visiting our area, or new to our area be aware of how to drive safely given the large influx of non-vehicular traffic.
On First Street, for example, cyclists do not stop at the stop signs - … (6 comments)

This annual fundraiser has raised over $2.25 million for local charities since inception and if  you have not been, it really is a great way to spend a few hours (or more) looking at antique autos in prisitine shape.
There are events that started yesterday, and run through Sunday. The event is at the Golf Club of Amelia, adjacent to the Ritz … (4 comments)

ponte vedra beach: Continuing Education Classes For Realtors in Northeast Florida - 02/27/14 07:55 PM
As many of you may know, I'm buried deep in the Certified International Property Specialist class this week. Today is the last day 
I took the full week, all five days: it's tough to be in class for a week, but it's sometimes tougher to get all the required classes in under a particular timeframe if you spread them out. 
One of the HUGE advantages of taking classes at my local association NEFAR (Northeast Florida Association of Realtors) is for the designation classes, such as this CIPS, breakfast and lunch were included as part of the registration fee.
Aside from being … (1 comments)

ponte vedra beach: Real Estate Predictions, 2014 - 01/05/14 08:38 PM
As I wrap up my year as President of NEFAR, I was contacted by Roger Bull at the Times Union the other day.
He was putting together a collection of 2014 predictions, (called a package the ad biz) and asked me to to give my predictions for real estate.
You don't have to ask me twice! I was thrilled to be part of the process.
Here is what ran in yesterday's Florida Times Union:

ponte vedra beach: Snow Sharks? The Great Whites Visit Jacksonville Beach! - 12/30/13 10:59 AM
It's that time of year again, when the Great White sharks from the Cape and Nantucket (among other points north) come to be "snow sharks" here in Northeast Florida.
Thanks to Ocearch research, and tagged sharks, we can now know where and how the sharks travel, which will continue to provide invaluable information to learn more about sharks.
It's no reason to not visit Florida, especially Jacksonville Beach, Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach and Ponte Vedra Beach, however.
