What an amazing experience we had with Gwen . She understood ours needs and showed us exactly what fit our needs in less than two hours . She is knowledgeable in all aspects of buying a home and made us feel like part of her family . Truly an asset to your company !

My wife and I met with Gwen in 2002 when my business was just starting and our credit rating was just average. We needed a home that had a large garage for our business and no home owner's association rules. She was a whirlwind of action for us. First she listed and sold our exsiting home at above market value by extolling its custom features to the buyers. Second, her quick and professional search of the homes available that met our needs enabled us to find several in area that was still undervalued. Gwen found a home that was a little above the high end of our price range, and not only got us a "screaming deal" but then worked with a lender to get us a loan with a rate we could afford. WOW is all I can say. Gwen goes above an beyond your expectations and caters to your every need. We would not have found our dream home or been able to afford it without Gwen's intervention. She is truly a real estate GURU!

Gwen is a highly talented, patient and delightful professional. She worked with us for several years, helping us to find the right home, which eventually we did in late 2016. During all that time, Gwen never pressured us and was always ready, willing and able to show us yet another property. Her extensive knowledge of the area (Jacksonville Beach, Ponte Vedra, St. Augustine and beyond) and individual neighborhoods and developments was invaluable in guiding us to purchase the best home for our needs. She and the entire team at Watson are talented professionals committed to excellent and comprehensive service.

We have been looking for houses since last year with Gwen, first to rent then to buy. She is working proactively and finds perfect houses for your needs. We will definitely recommend working with Gwen, she is the best!

Abidin Tankut

I didn't know anyone when I moved to Florida, but as former realtor I reached out to my colleagues for a referral and several people mentioned Gwen. She is known far and wide! And for very good reasons. She knows everything there is to know about the industry and the area, is organized and dependable, and best of all has a fantastic sense of humor which always keeps things upbeat. I never had to worry about a thing - Gwen was on top of all the details. Gwen Templeton is a rockstar!

Bonnie Roberts

My wife Suzanne and I are living the dream--we are retired and living in a house we love and in a place we love. Gwen is the person who is responsible for us getting here. She brought us to Cypress Trails in Nocatee after telling her what we were interested in for living in Florida--she knew just what we wanted and showed us how to get it. She is a very professional, personable, trusting individual who we would recommend to anyone needing a realtor.

Thomas and Suzanne Dilts

Gwen was great to work with in finding our new home. Never did we feel rushed in making a decision on such a large purchase and she was always there to bounce ideas around when needed. Would we use Gwen again? Absolutely! And another plus, she loves animals.

Mary & John Cresie

I loved working with Gwen. I was in a very tough position, not living in Florida and had a very poor experience which cost me a lot of money. I contacted Gwen with my situation and she immediately put me at ease. I, for the first time felt confident that I was finally going to be done with the "mess" that was suppose to be handled by another realty company. Immediately Gwen gave me options, moved forward and within a very short amount of time my house sold. She was compassionate, worked quickly and never hesitated to answer questions and looked out for my best interest. If I ever were to come to Florida I would definitely contact Gwen or refer her.

Rachele B. Scarlett

Gwen is professional, talented individual. She helped make our cross country move into a new home a smooth process. She was a strong advocate for us on many fronts. I was highly pleased with Gwen.

Steve

I highly recommend Gwen as a professional realtor. I chose her after the realtor I had was very pessimistic about my options and stated it could be months before I find anything. I had three weeks to buy a house and travelled four days a week for my job. Gwen didn't flinch at the obstacle I had in my path. She lined up multiple houses to show me in one day and the very last house we walked through I bought. I am still in that same house and have made it my home.

Heather Boley

Gwen made house hunting an absolute pleasure! She showed me only the type of home I was looking for, no fluff. Looking forward to working with her again in the near future.

Lisa Shore

Gwen is amazing. We had tight timeframes within which to house hunt while in town and Gwen (very nearly) cleared her calendar, got us in to every place we wanted to see, and was always professional and helpful without being pushy. Her experience and sage advice when dealing with less experienced, less helpful, and less professional realtors and sellers was invaluable. Gwen knows her markets inside and out, and always had done her homework ahead of the game. She was consistently a real pleasure to work with, and not only talked the talk but made it work for us to produce real results. Unfortunately, she has been the exception rather than the rule in our experience with a wide range of realtors in a wide range of circumstances, but this makes her an even greater outlier. Gwen’s persistence and professionalism is rare in her industry, and Watson is very lucky to have her.

J.D. Opdyke

Gwen was the absolute best realtor to help me through my home buying experience. I relocated from Ohio and did not know this area. She helped me narrow down my search and find the best possible home and neighborhood. I was having a hard time finding the right home for my family and Gwen found a house for us that wasn't even on the market! So happy with our new home and my experience with Gwen and Watson Realty!

Debbie Piper

My experience with Gwen was excellent. She is a seasoned real estate professional who provided superior service. I was so happy with Gwen that I will be asking her to represent my next property sale expected to be listed in 2017. I not only will continue to utilize Gwen for all my real estate needs but have and continue to refer Gwen to friends, family and acquaintances.

Deana Alfano

Gwen is the ABSOLUTE BEST agent! She wil be the one I use for any future business. Gwen is so professional and knowledgeable, she was so helpful through our whole moving processes 10 out of 10 We love her!!!

Deborah Shor

I've been fortunate to know Gwen for at least ten years. During that time, she  has demonstrated her many skills which she continues today. Examples would be a problem solver, administrator, knowledge in real estate, compassion, decisional and a manager of success. Add character and integrity and you have "The Best" serving your real estate needs. Mike  Mike Rombold

.............Gwen goes the "extra mile" to make the sale and move transition a smooth process. She is an outstanding marketer and we feel very lucky to have had her as our realtor. Gwen's vast experience and network is a priceless attribute to a seller! She truly works for you, and doesn't forget about you once the sign goes up on the lawn! Bob and Pam Bennett
