Lee Buck is the man. I would not work with anybody else to buy a house. Lee helped me buy a house during the financial crisis of 2010 (see attached picture). Not only did he find me an amazing deal (the house has almost doubled in value in five years), he worked relentlessly to help me get financing for the place which was a real challenge in the days after the crash. Then he worked with me to negotiate the best deal possible from the seller. Needless to say, he did great! Lee is somebody I absolutely trust. He has strong moral values and character - I truly believe he is the best real estate agent on the First Coast. Most real estate agents work for volume - their goal is go churn through as many customers as quickly as possible to make more money even if it means not fighting as hard to get you the customer a good deal. Lee is not like that - he will fight hard and negotiate persuasively to get you the best deal possible. When I move back to JAX Beach for good, Lee is going to be the guy I choose to help buy my next house!

My Dad passed away in 1998, and my Mom's world came to a halt. She soon decided to move to a new house, and called Lee "Beach" Buck. My father was Mayor of Jacksonville Beach at the time of his death, so leaving the city she and Dad loved so much was not an option. Lee went to work immediately and found her a new construction home closer to the ocean. Knowing she was alone, Lee took the time to visit the worksite almost daily to oversee the final phases of construction to her new home. Since I was living out of the area at the time, I was unable to be there for Mom every day... but Lee Buck was there for her every single day. My family will never be able to thank Lee enough for going above and beyond to help my Mom transition into her new home. I offer my highest possible recommendation on Lee's behalf.

We would not have found the house we love and live in now had it not been for the patience and perseverance of Lee Buck. He helped us get our old home ready to sell (it sold within a week) and then helped us through the process of sorting out what we didn't want in a new home to the things that were important for us to have. Lee was a God Send from the very beginning and we could not have done it without him! Lee is the essence of professionalism , his knowledge and expertise are second to none!

To Whom it May Concern, I am writing to give Lee Buck my highest recommendation. Lee possesses all the attributes necessary to be an excellent broker: he knows his market extremely well; he is diligent, responsive, and yet very patient with his clients. Lee is both very professional and personable. He clearly takes pride in doing a good job. In my particular case as a buyer of a home, there were many rough spots on the road to closing and in every instance Lee was a great help. It would be hard to envision someone doing a better job than Lee or being anything but happy in choosing to work with him. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lee Buck to any person who is looking to buy or sell a home, as well as seek his service in any of my future real estate transactions. Sincerely, Paul M Agbayani

We have used Lee Buck several times over the years, once to sell a rental property we had a he was the selling agent for a home my daughter purchased. Both experiences were outstanding. In the past year we sold our primary residence and purchased another home but used another realtor, a friend that we felt comfortable with..this experience almost ruined our friendship. I called Lee afterwards and apologized to him for not letting him handle our transaction. Not only is Lee Buck very knowledgeable about the market and an absolute joy to work with, he is probably one of the hardest working individuals I know. He is always available to answer your questions and concerns but his calm personality makes you feel as if you are the only customer he has. I highly recommend Lee Buck fo any and all of you real estate needs. He is a winner all of the way. I am proud to call him my friend.

Lee is the best! I have worked with him several times. The first time was when I was trying to sell a parcel of land in a down market. He tirelessly worked on securing a buyer. The second time was when my brother, who lives out of state, was interested in purchasing a condo. Lee spent and inordinate amount of time and effort in assisting him. Lee has been in real estate for many years and has the knowledge and experience in the market and has a way of taking stress out of the situation . Additionally, he is a super nice person!! We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Lee.
