Originally from New Jersey, my family and I moved to Jacksonville in 2006, attracted by the active boating community, great real estate values and SUNSHINE! Since 2006, the real estate market has had it's ups and downs. We've all experienced the declines from the highs of 2006, however things have continued to improve over the last several years, and NOW is a great time to be looking to purchase a home, whether as your primary residence or as an investment. In addition, the return of significant numbers of buyers to the market also makes it a good time to sell. Prior to joining Watson, I was Chief Financial Officer for a high-tech manufacturing company in Portland, Oregon. My financial and business background has been extremely helpful to many of my customers as they look for information regarding their next purchase or sale. I am active in my church, enjoy boating (and have a U.S. Coast Guard Master's license), and live near the intracoastal waterway here in Jacksonville. I welcome the opportunity to put my expertise to work helping you find the home of your dreams, or selling the home you have now!
