    by Watson Realty | Apr 26, 2016


    The great fire of 1901, which destroyed most of downtown Jacksonville, spared the Springfield neighborhood.

    ​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.

  • 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.
