  • Welcome Home: Springfield

    by Watson Realty | Apr 26, 2016


    The great fire of 1901, which destroyed most of downtown Jacksonville, spared the Springfield neighborhood. Today, many young families are moving into the area to plant roots in this boasting neighborhood with vibrant history and walkable shops, restaurants, and parks. Bordered by Klutho Park, Jacksonville’s own ‘Central Park’, are prairie-style and gingerbread Queen Anne homes, some completely restored and others waiting their chance, share the streets with Spanish moss-draped trees. 

    ​Established in 1869, the area contains some of the city’s best examples of 19th century and early 20th century architecture. Springfield’s history is well documented, and was even named the #1 “comeback” neighborhood in the South in 2010 by Southern Living magazine.

    ​With the median sales price for a homes starting at $144,150, you are able to live in the center of it all affordably. Springfield is located down the street from UF Health, Stanton College Preparatory School and Florida State College of Jacksonville’s main campus, and a short drive from the Everbank Field, Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville and Veterans Memorial Arena. Contact your local Watson office today to find out how you can make Springfield your home!

  • Jeff Fagan and Gold Key Certification Featured in Realtor Mag

    by Watson Realty | Apr 08, 2016

    Jeff Fagan, regional vice president at Watson Realty Corp. and director of the Orlando Regional REALTORS® Association (ORRA), was featured in the most recent issue of Realtor Mag.  

    Realtor Mag included Jeff Fagan’s commentary in the recent article about brokers who are continuing the education of their associates. Fagan was instrumental in developing the Gold Key Certification for ORRA. The program was “first offered in 2015 after seeing that more than half of complaints filed nationwide with real estate licensing authorities were about issues that aren’t governed by the REALTORS® Code of Ethics” according to the article. The Gold Key Certification teaches ways to be more respectful, dress properly and respond to customers and leads in a timely manner. 

    You can view the piece here and to find out more information about the Gold Key Certification you can go here.

    Watson Realty Corp.’s website, WatsonRealtyCorp.com, earned the certification after receiving high marks in a number of critical areas relating to website performance, including usability, design and content, interactivity, customer service and mobile responsiveness. The evaluation was conducted by Virtual Results, LLC, a real estate Internet and social marketing firm selected by LeadingRE to review the websites of participating members. 

    Available only to firms affiliated with LeadingRE, the WQC is awarded based on specific measurements that are updated each year based on the latest in internet marketing strategies and evolving consumer preferences. To maintain the certification, companies must be re-certified every two years.

    “We created the WQC to raise the bar in online marketing and recognize the companies that are demonstrating best practices with their websites,” said Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® President/CEO Pam O’Connor. “The 136 companies that earned the WQC this year have not only mastered the technical components, but they have also shown superiority in providing highly local content, up-to-the-minute information on homes, and responsive customer service.”

    by Watson Realty | Mar 04, 2016


    Welcome Home: Nocatee

    Venture into Nocatee and you’ll notice a sign proudly proclaiming that the community is “one of the fastest-growing in the nation.” This is no surprise considering the master-planned community’s desirable location, impressive amenities, collection of unique neighborhoods, sprawling nature preserves and elite schools.

    The neighborhood’s success lies in “its unique lifestyle, which blends a coastal location with world-class amenities and top-ranked schools,” per the PARC Group, Nocatee’s master developer. This active community boasts a number of outdoor attractions such as Splash Water Park, featuring a lazy river and water slides, The Greenway Trails, which offer more than 5,000 acres of connecting parks and preserved wetlands, the Kayak Launch, which is open year-round, golf cart-friendly paths, shopping and schools. Resident events and activities (suitable for all ages) are held monthly throughout the year.

    Approximately 3,000 families now call the neighborhood home, thanks in large part to the community’s access to top-quality schools. The “A” rated Ponte Vedra High School opened in Nocatee in 2008, and a new K-8 school, Valley Ridge Academy, opened its doors recently. It’s not done growing yet, either—Nocatee has reserved land for five elementary schools and one middle school, aiming to have an elementary school within walking or biking distance from every home in the 20 communities on-site.

    Located southeast of Jacksonville, Nocatee is nestled in the desirable St. Johns County school system. Prices for new single-family residences range from the mid $200s to the low $600s and are built by world renowned builders including David Weekly, Providence Homes, Dostie Homes, Standard Pacific Homes and many more.
