  • OVER 100 WATSON REALTY CORP. ASSOCIATES AWARDED MAJOR RECOGNITION

    by Watson Realty | Aug 10, 2016

    117 associates and employees at Watson Realty Corp. and Watson Mortgage Corp. were recognized for their outstanding service and customer satisfaction in the 2016 Jacksonville Five Star Home Professionals awards, including Real Estate Agent, Rising Star Real Estate Agents and Mortgage Professionals awards.

     

    The 2016 Jacksonville Five Star Real Estate Agent award, a recognition given to Jacksonville's top real estate professionals, was awarded to 105 Watson Realty Corp. sales associates. Associates from the Amelia Island, Atlantic Beach, Avondale- Ortega, Baymeadows/ Sunbeam, Duval Station, Fleming Island, Ft. Caroline, Hidden Hills, Hodges, Intracoastal, Mandarin North, Mandarin South, Middleburg, Orange Park Blanding, Orange Park Oakleaf, Ponte Vedra, San Marco/ San Jose, South Beach, Southside, St. Augustine, St. Augustine Beach, St. Johns, West/Chaffee Road and Watson Relocation Services offices received the 2016 Five Star Real Estate Agent Award.

     

    Eight associates were named Jacksonville’s 2016 Rising Star Real Estate Agents. The Rising Star Real Estate Agent recognition is evaluated by both consumer feedback and established industry professionals who nominated up-and-coming agents that embody professional excellence, exhibit superior customer service skills and show great potential to excel in their profession.

     

    Four Watson Mortgage Corp. associates were named 2016 Jacksonville Five Star Mortgage Professionals. Five Star Professional surveyed more than 8,200 Jacksonville-area homeowners. The final list of 2016 Jacksonville Five Star Mortgage Professionals is a select group, representing less than three percent of mortgage professionals in the area.

     

    The selection of Jacksonville's Five Star Home Professionals for 2016 was done in partnership with Jacksonville Magazine and research firm Five Star Professional. The winners have been recognized as real estate, mortgage and insurance professionals who consistently provide quality service to their customers. The recipients were also featured in a special section of Jacksonville Magazine's July issue.

     

    The Five Star Professional research team contacted thousands of recent homebuyers, as well as other consumers. Phone, mail and online respondents rated their service professional on criteria such as overall satisfaction and whether they would recommend the provider to a friend. The research methodology allows no more than seven percent of professionals in each category to receive the award.

This group of highly successful real estate sales associates represents less than 1 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States.

     

    “The average residential real estate agent in the United States closed fewer than eight transactions in 2015 and had less than $1.5 million in sales,” says Steve Murray, publisher of REAL Trends’ America’s Best Real Estate Agents and president of REAL Trends. “To say that Watson Realty Corp. is an exceptional real estate company is an understatement. To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding.”

  • 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.”
