David Podvia - Watson Real Estate

A Jacksonville resident since I was 6 years old, you could say that I’ve grown up with Northeast Florida.  I love this area and truly think it’s the best place to live. There’s such a diversity of neighborhoods and activities that there’s a perfect somewhere here for everyone.  My love of the area and the changing needs of my growing family helped make a move into a real estate career almost a decade ago.  That move has only served to increase my knowledge and appreciation for living in Northeast Florida. Spend a few minutes telling me about what you love to do and I’ll not only understand your real estate needs, I’ll guide you to some places your might not discover on your own.

My customers are from all walks of life, and I’ve guided folks through transactions ranging from under $100,000 to over $2 million. Everyone gets my full attention and best effort, as for many, real estate represents the biggest, most important asset in their life.  I am anything but pushy: your best interest is my best interest.  I’m very proud of the fact that customer feedback after the transaction usually includes comments on my excellent communication skills, patience, exceptional customer service, and honesty.  Many have said it’s the best experience with any realtor they’ve ever worked with, and they would absolutely call me again and recommend me to anyone.  

 

In the 40+ years I have lived in Northeast Florida I have seen a lot of great changes.  If you love sports, living here will give you access to pro football, world class golf,  AAA baseball, ice hockey and college sports.  There are plenty of good places for hunting, fishing, boating and kayaking, if these things appeal to you.  And there are so many parks and public spaces here, it can take you years to get around to them all. If you love diversity of landscape I can tell you all about other spots in Florida; from the springs at Ichetucknee to the rolling hills near Tallahassee, to the Everglades, to the marshes and the numerous beaches.  Like to garden and grow things? Ask me about my own yard and garden, and the many things you can enjoy growing here. 

I am married with four children. I graduated from Episcopal School of Jacksonville and the University of North Florida. When I’m not working, it’s all about family time. We have four children, two in college, and we love to hang out and travel together. I volunteer time and treasure to the Hunger Fight, Autism Speaks, and I coach youth soccer.

Whether you are buying or selling a home, I look forward to helping you fulfill your real estate needs. Because, professionally speaking, helping you with these decisions and keeping your transaction on track are the most important things I do.  Reach out to me by phone, text or email about your real estate goals and dreams.  You will be happy you did.

David Podvia is a 5 star Realestate Agent. His professionalism, knowledge, and patience is key to his success; as well as, a benefit to those he represent. I would most definitely recommend David to those who are interested in purchasing a home in the Jacksonville market.

Solomon Jones

Mr. Podvia has been a great professional who made the impossible seems not only possible, but easy and quick. He helped us sell our house in James Island. He went the extra miles all the time to make it happen with his advice and knowledge. He was always quick to answer my texts, emails and calls. I recommend Mr. Podvia if you're buying or selling. I will be working with him again soon to buy a house.

Ahmed Adbelmagid

David was very patient with us as we desired a certain price for the house we sold and of course with the purchase of our new home. I can't tell you how many times he went the extra mile to make us happy. He is the utmost professional and we are very grateful for his efforts. We highly recommend him.

David gets 5 stars from us! He went not one but many extra miles for us, making the challenging situation of making a big change moving from Maryland to Florida and building a house long distance doable. He was kind, attentive, and very capable. He's the best!! Susan and Michael Conord

Susan Conord

We had the privilege of working with David as our realtor when looking to purchase a Condo in Ponte Vedra. Our experience working with David was great and we would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a Realtor in the area. In addition to helping us in our home search, he was also a wealth of knowledge about the community and was able to answer many questions that we had. We love our beautiful Condo in Nocatee. Sincerely, Denise and Mike Garrett

Denise Garrett

We are a military family that moved to Jacksonville in 2013 and had no idea what to expect as neither my wife or I had ever been to the city. By pure luck we found David at Watson Reality and he was able to help us through both the rental market and pre built homes in the area. Finding nothing we liked he suggested the possibility of new construction and we went and looked at some model homes and found a plan that worked for us and was affordable. I would have never considered new construction so David's ability to figure out what would work for us and then helping us consider other options was awesome. During the building process we were not able to be there so David took the time to check in on the Builders and made sure we were going to be happy with the finished product. Unfortunately being a military family we had to leave 3 1/2 years later and it wasn't even a second thought to list it with anybody other than David. Once again his professionalism, patience, and advice helped us to get it on the market and sold for a very fair price. If we ever have to move back to Jacksonville we will be asking him to help us again!

Dave Vander Beek

David absolutely exceeded every expectation we had. Being active duty military on very short fused orders we had a small amount of time to find a place, and David dropped everything to focus on us. He gave us honest input on properties and genuinely had my family's best interests at hand. Highly recommend David to anyone!

Jeffery Combs

David is an outstanding Realtor who was extremely involved and absolutely wonderful about handling any issues we had in an incredibly timely fashion. I cannot recommend him strongly enough! If I ever consider purchasing another home he will be the first phone call I make!

Matthew Piro

David has been a blessing in my life. I had sold my home in Long Island NY after the passing of my husband and my youngest daughter went away for college. David listened to the physical needs/wants and the financial situation that I preferred for a home. He quickly became in tune to my likes and dislikes after just a few viewings of condos. He was honest, very kind and determined to find what I would be comfortable in without wasting any time. He even helped negotiate costs on my behalf. My goal was to purchase a small home in the future however I had to learn the Jacksonville areas and beyond before making a decision. David shared all his knowledge with me and showed me the areas I may want to consider... For over a Year! David never losing interest in helping to find the perfect area/home for me. I have purchased my home now and David was by my side through every step and even beyond closing. The home was newly built, David actively corresponded with the builder to be sure the after closing work was completed. I highly recommend David due to his honesty, clearly listening to the needs/wants of his client and pure patience in helping to find the "home" that's perfect for you.

Cindy Costanzo

From my first call with David. I knew I was in good hands. My rental property was located in Jacksonville and I live in southern california. There are always work in getting the house ready for the market and David coordinated all the work during the Christmas holiday. David has outstanding communication skills and kept me and my partner in the loop throughout the entire process including getting the house ready, negotiation with buyers and frequent status update throughout escrow process. David absolutely put our interest before his. We truly appreciate that he went so many extra miles for us.

Jessie Yau

David has been our realtor for a few different real estate transactions. When we first relocated back to Jacksonville, he helped to coordinate showings during our short trips and also virtual showings. He always listened and let us work through our thoughts while viewing the properties which was much appreciated. He facilitated all the details with the offer and closing processes, making them flow much easier. We have worked with many realtors over the years in multiple commercial and residential transactions in GA, NC and FL and David would rate as our top choice.

Heidi D

David is a great person and realtor. He does not push you into anything, he listens to what you are thinking and offers sound advice.

Paul Dent

David was absolutely fantastic. We weren't familiar with the area prior to relocating to Jacksonville, so David took the better part of one year meeting us during visits to the area and FaceTiming with us multiple times as we built our new home from several states away. He was always available, and his pleasant, easy-going, trustworthy nature and informative, professional approach was a huge plus. We strongly recommend David as a Realtor!
