  • WATSON REALTY CORP. ASSOCIATES BUILD STRONGER COMMUNITIES WITH HABITAT FOR HUMANITY

    by Watson Realty | Jul 22, 2016

    On June 29th over 50 Watson Realty Corp. sales associates and brokers joined together to give back to Orlando by assisting Habitat for Humanity of Greater Orlando Area.

     

    The build took place in Butler’s Preserve, a Habitat for Humanity development that broke ground in 2014. This “new urbanism” community of 59 affordable homes is being constructed on a piece of property in the Malibu Groves area that has been blighted for more than 20 years. The Florida Green Building Coalition Certified homes will be completed by 2017 and recently began accepting applications for homeownership. Over 50 associates from the Oviedo, Longwood, Orlando SW, Wekiva/Longwood, Heathrow, Maitland and Orlando Regional offices participated.

     

    “Making a commitment to helping our community is an integral part of the Watson Realty Corp. mission,” said Jeff Fagan, Orlando regional vice president of Watson Realty Corp., “Habitat for Humanity is positively changing the lives of those less fortunate and we are humbled to be a part of the cause.”

     

    Watson is also helping with Habitat for Humanity of Lake and Sumter counties on their new build, Veterans Village. This community is a new Habitat for Humanity development spearheaded by Watson associate, Kent Adcock. The goal of the new community is to create a sustainable pocket neighborhood for American heroes. Watson is the featured listing real estate broker for the project located in Umatilla, Fla.

     

    Adcock joined Watson’s Mount Dora office last September. He is the CEO of Habitat For Humanity-Lake & Sumter Counties and has been with Habitat for over 30 years. Watson will be working with Kent on Veteran's Village, for veterans and widows of veterans, and will include over 19 single family homes. Watson Realty Corp. has generously donated their resources as a sponsor of the development. The groundbreaking ceremony will be in November 2016 and will include a Bob Hope USO show.

  • DEBBIE SHAGNEA OF WATSON REALTY CORP. NAMED ONE OF AMERICA’S TOP 1,000 REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONALS BY REAL TRENDS, AS ADVERTISED IN THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

    by Watson Realty | Jul 06, 2016

    Debbie Shagnea of Watson Realty Corp. was named one of America’s top real estate professionals by REAL Trends, as advertised in The Wall Street Journal. She is now a member of “The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals,” a prestigious national awards ranking sponsored annually by REAL Trends and advertised in The Wall Street Journal.  Shagnea is now ranked in the top one half of 1 percent of the more than 1.1 million Realtors® nationwide.

     

    The Thousand real estate professionals was announced on June 24, 2016, with four separate categories honoring the top 250 residential agents and agent teams for excellence in: 

    • Individual Sales Professionals—Sales volume
    • Individual Sales Professionals—Transaction sides (in each real estate transaction, there are two sides that can be represented by a real estate agent: a buyer’s and a seller’s.)
    • Team Professionals—Sales volume
    • Team Professionals—Transaction sides 

    For the second year, REAL Trends has added two new categories to The Thousand ranking based off of average sales price. This new category is broken down into the top 50 residential agents and agent teams for excellence in: 

    • Individual Sales Professionals – Average Sales Price
    • Team Professionals – Average Sales Price 

    According to The Thousand, Shagnea had transaction sides totaling 167.2, ranking 126 in the nation.

     

    “The best individual agents and teams—including Shagnea’s award-winning efforts—were nothing short of phenomenal considering the challenges in today’s complex housing market,” said Steve Murray, founder of REAL Trends, a Denver-based consulting, publishing and communications company and The Trusted Source that compiles the yearly, third-party verified list.

     

    “Becoming a member of such an elite group as The Thousand is an incredible accomplishment in any market, but what Shagnea did during these challenging times is impressive on so many levels,” said Marti Gallardo, vice president of classified advertising for The Wall Street Journal.  “Her efforts topped 99.99 percent of the more than 1.1 million Realtors nationwide.”

     

    “I am absolutely thrilled to be named to The Thousand,” said Shagnea, who serves clients primarily in North Florida.  “It’s incredibly gratifying to help clients find their dream homes as well as help them sell their properties quickly and for the highest price possible.”

    Headquartered in Lexington, Va., Sigma Nu Fraternity was founded in 1869 at Virginia Military Institute in Lexington. The fraternity currently has 163 chapters and colonies and has initiated more than 235,000 members since its founding.

     

    “We are very appreciative of Mr. Watson’s belief in and support of our mission to develop ethical leaders for tomorrow,” said Brad L. Hastings, Sigma Nu president, Sigma Nu Educational Foundation “He has given generously of his time and resources to the Delta Mu Chapter and it has made a lasting impact on the men of the chapter over the years.”

     

    In 1982 the Fiftieth Grand Chapter at Snowbird, Utah, authorized the establishment of the Sigma Nu Hall of Fame. As a complement to the Hall of Honor, the Hall of Fame is awarded biennially to those alumni, living or posthumously, who have distinguished themselves in their respective fields, thus bringing credit to the fraternity. Other notable inductees for this prestigious honor include Harrison Ford, Eli Manning, Bear Bryant and Bob Barker.

     

    Sigma Nu’s annual Grand Chapter takes place from Wednesday, June 29th to Saturday, July 2nd, at the Manchester Grand Hyatt, and includes business sessions, educational workshops and presentation of awards.

  • ST. AUGUSTINE REALTORS SPONSOR 14TH ANNUAL FISHING FOR DREAMS TOURNAMENT

    by Watson Realty | Jun 27, 2016

    Michelle Thomas and Regina Gonzales named a Bronze Sponsor of the 14th Annual Fishing for Dreams Tournament.

     

    The Fishing for Dreams Tournament is an inshore invitational tournament and Fishing for Dreams’ (FFD) major yearly fundraiser. This year’s tournament was held on April 20th. Categories for fish were: red bass, spotted seatrout and flounder.

     

    Established in 2003, FFD is a non-profit charitable organization that supports local children with life threatening medical conditions and families with special needs. A group of local anglers wished to make a difference in the lives of local children and their families and thus, FFD was established. Dreams are provided in a variety of forms – this year the chosen Dream recipient, Will Barkoskie, received his dream golf cart equipped with handicap accessibility. At the age of two Will was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a degenerative neuromuscular disease that primarily affects boys. All Dream children are from or live in the St. Johns County area.

     

    To contact Michelle Thomas and Regina Gonzales call (904) 495-0115 or visit your local St. Augustine office today.

  • Kyle Bosworth, Former NFL Player, Joins Watson Realty Corp.

    by Watson Realty | Jun 06, 2016

    Kyle Bosworth, former NFL football player has joined the Hodges office of Watson Realty Corp.

    Bosworth, who most recently played for the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and the Jacksonville Jaguars, chose for his next career to pursue a real estate career with Watson Realty Corp. He began working in the real estate industry while living in Dallas where he was a licensed Realtor and bringing his passion for real estate to the First Coast.

     

    “We are very excited to have Kyle join our team. He has deep ties into the NFL resource team so I expect great things from him,” said John Nadler, Hodges office managing broker.

     

    “When I chose to move back to Jacksonville I wanted to continue my career in real estate with a company that had local ties and national recognition. So it was only natural that I chose Watson,” said Bosworth.

    Bosworth and wife Kara Keough Bosworth, of the Real Housewives of Orange County, recently welcomed a baby girl to their family in January. He and Kara met at UCLA where he obtained a bachelors degree in political science and played college football before joining the NFL.
