Richard, I work with seniors in Maryland and will keep you in mind if I encounter any buyers thinking of relocating out of this area to Florida.

My hometown. I love it. THanks for sharing. I plan to retire in St Aug and will travel often to Jax.

Thanks Barbara. I retired from Bel Air, Maryland (35 year resident) and I just came home from a visit with my son's family in Fairfax, VA. I have a team of partners who are great from Daytona Beach to Amelia Island.
