Thanksgiving drive brings in more than 200 bags of donations for struggling families

November 19, 2019

 | 

Last weekend, generous residents, customers and friends took time out of their busy weekend to donate groceries for my annual Thanksgiving drive at Heritage Landing!

 

More than 200 bags of donations were brought in addition to palates of drinks, household cleaners, paper towels and much more (in fact, this photo was taken just halfway through the drive!)

 

All donations went straight to the Emergency Services & Homeless Coalition of St. Johns County. The non-profit helps struggling families get back on their feet through food redistribution, clothing donations, neighborhood watch services and assistance accessing Medicaid, disability insurance and other resources. The Coalition also focuses on creating stability for the kids of its families with tutoring, after-school snacks, computer training, recreational activities and summer camps.

 

I want to thank each and every person who took the time and expense to donate!

Davidson Networking Spotlight: Nicole Fletcher at Nicole’s Cleaning LLC

Posted by in Events, News

For Nicole Fletcher, the path to career success included a detour through another field and lots of practice in her home life. Before launching Nicole’s Cleaning LLC, she followed her dream of working with money by studying to be an accountant.

 

“I realized that I wouldn’t be happy working with money unless it was mine,” said Nicole, noting that the coursework did help her next career. “The classes I took set me up to be able to run the books of my company, I just didn’t know what kind of business I wanted to have.”

 

The mother of four boys had become an expert in house cleaning, so she decided to utilize her expertise and enter the field. “I liked the idea of setting my own hours, when and where I would work and how much I could make,” Nicole said. “Now, I set the hours and I never have a day off.” She joked, “What a mean boss I have.”

 

Nicole recently took time out of her busy schedule to answer some questions about her business. Read on to learn more!

 

What sets you apart from other cleaning services?  My thought is, you are paying me to do a job you could easily do yourself, so I have to do it better than you would do it yourself. My attention to detail, doing what I would expect to be done if I was paying someone to do it and overall pride in my work sets my services apart.

Think all property managers are the same? Here are 6 ways Davidson is different!

November 13, 2019

 | 

When you rent out your home, it can be easy to fall into the idea that all property management companies are essentially the same. They locate and screen tenants, collect rent and handle issues that arise during the lease.

 

 

However, how well property managers juggle these tasks varies widely! Here are six of the many ways your experience with Davidson Property Management (DPM) will be different:

 

1.) Our rental team: Unlike many companies in which property managers show their own properties, our team consists of staffed rental agents that are designated to show the rental properties. This makes it much more accessible to show the property, which makes your home more marketable and gets you a renter more quickly.

 

2.) Higher rental commission: For DPM managed properties, the rent commission is double what most other companies offer. How does this benefit our homeowners? It motivates agents to find great tenants and rent your property faster!

 

3.) 24/7 access: While some property management companies limit response times based on business hours, our team guarantees a timely response no matter the issue or question, and any time day or night.

4 important questions to consider when upsizing your home

November 6, 2019

 | 

At some point in our lives, most of us find the need for more space. The next logical step is to move to a home with more square footage. But there are several important questions that should be addressed before you start looking for a bigger house.

 

Why do I need more room?

 

Whether you are growing by people or acquiring more stuff (or both), your space needs will differ. Many families are growing and looking to accommodate more children. That means you need additional bedrooms, bathrooms, a larger living room and perhaps a larger yard to accommodate a swing set and trampoline.

 

Maybe an elderly family member is moving in or you have frequent guests. In that case, you may want to seek out homes with a separate suite or an apartment above the garage. Have you started a business that requires more space? Plan for another room to accommodate your office or perhaps a larger garage for your new company’s inventory.
