Congratulations to our TOP Producers in Q1 & March

April 22, 2024

In the exiting world of real estate, where every deal carries the promise of new beginnings, recognizing exceptional performance and loyalty is important to us here at Davidson Realty. I wanted to take a break from our usual monthly Q & A format with our TOP PERFORMERS and personally brag about them for their accomplishments not only in March but the entire first quarter of 2024.

 

Margherite Myers is our TOP PRODUCER for MARCH! Margherite has been a World Golf Village resident for many years and has been with us at Davidson Realty for almost 15 years now. With her professional guidance and knowledge, she has helped so many people buy and sell homes in our Northeast Florida market. Margherite has been awarded multiple times the Five Star Professional Award: An award that recognizes outstanding real estate agents who show dedication to the customers and professional excellence. It’s no surprise she is TOPS!

 

Mirtha Barzaga is our TOP PRODUCER for the FIRST QUARTER! Mirtha is one of our TOP Agents both in SUPERIOR service and production. She has been Davidson’s Top Lister, Top Overall Sales, and Top Producer in 8 of the last 10 years here at our company. That accomplishment of sustained success in itself proves she is the BEST in the business. Mirtha chose Davidson 17 years ago to embark on her real estate career and we are beyond lucky she did!

 

Shelley & Tim Nemethy of The Nemethy Group are our TOP SALES TEAM for MARCH and our TOP PRODUCING TEAM and TOP SALES TEAM for the FIRST QUARTER! Shelley & Tim are EXCEPTIONAL and have been our top team at Davidson Realty five years running! Shelley joined us first almost 11 years ago creating a successful business model and 5 years after that Tim came aboard making them an unstoppable force! They are seasoned real estate professionals who provide personalized service for all their customers no matter the real estate need. They help customers buy and sell all over, but they live and love the beach lifestyle!

“Baseball, it is said, is only a game. True. And the Grand Canyon is only a hole in Arizona.” – Journalist & Autor, George Will

 

I am very excited about Baseball season starting. It is my favorite time of the year.

 

The February 2024 market review from the Northeast Florida Association of Realtors confirms the ups and downs of our market each month. At least the median price has stayed relatively stable. The median sales price of all property types in February was $359,000. The price has gone up and down monthly but stayed in a consistent range.

 

There were 1,893 closed sales in February, which is up 29.1% from January and down 7.8% from last year. The National Association of Realtors reported that home buyers who paid cash accounted for 32% of home sales in January, marking the highest cash sales since 2014. Many leveraged the equity from a prior sale.

 

There were 1,808 pending sales in February, which is down 15.2% from January and 24.6% from last year. The mortgage rates ticked back up in February after dropping in December, which slowed sales. The average 30-year fixed mortgage rate was 6.78% in February, up from 6.64% in January, according to Freddie Mac’s weekly survey.

Congratulations to our TOP Producers in February

March 27, 2024

As we bid farewell to the shortest month of the year, it is time recognize our TOP PERFORMERS for February! We proudly celebrate their outstanding accomplishments and their unwavering commitment to their customers! In addition to honoring them we also like to use this blog as a forum to share their professional advice. This month we asked them “What advice do you have for sellers or buyers who are on the fence about making a move right now? Please read on as they share their insights!

Our Top Producer, Top Lister and Top Overall Sales Agent for February is Mirtha Barzaga!
Mirtha – Real Estate prices I do not feel are going to go down further here, in the State of Florida County of St Johns particularly we have too much to offer and although inventory is improving there is still a lot of demand.
If buyers are worried about interest rates then my approach is: what mortgage payment are you comfortable with? Let’s get you into the house that fits your needs for that payment even if we need to buy the rate down to start. Later on you can always refinance and lower it even more, but by no means should you sacrifice your lifestyle or keep throwing away money in a rental when we can work out the numbers for you.

Empowering Students, Teachers, and Our Community with INK! (Investing in Kids)

March 26, 2024

 | 

This past fall, Davidson Realty hosted their eighth annual sport shooting fundraiser, the Jim Davidson’s Annual Clay Day. Named Davidson Cares Clay Day in years past, the fundraising event was renamed in 2023 to honor the recent passing of the Davidson family’s patriarch, Jim Davidson. Clay Day includes two sport shooting events, beginner skeet and sporting clay, and individuals and teams participate. Money raised from the event goes directly to local nonprofits, specifically youth-based organizations throughout Northeast Florida. This past Clay Day was held on October 19, 2023, and raised $150,000 that was awarded to eight local charities. Since 2012, Davidson Cares, the corporate giving program of Davidson Realty, has donated more than $577,785!

 

One of organizations Davidson Cares lends support to is Investing in Kids! (INK!), an education nonprofit that supports St. Johns County School District, working to improve access to education for every child. Since 1994, INK! has provided the tools and resources that both students and teachers need to be successful. INK! supports more than 3,200 teachers and 50,000 students countywide – and all their services, programs, and resources are available to students and teachers at no cost – thanks to partners like Davidson Realty.

Congratulations to our TOP Producers in January

February 28, 2024

January 2024 is in the books for us as Davidson Realty . Our team is hard at work selling lots of real estate as usual. We want to congratulate our TOP Producers for a successful January! We asked our Top Agents this month “What is one thing you learned from your last transaction that could benefit your future customers?” Please read on as they share their insights!

 

Our Top Producer, Top Lister and Top Overall Sales Agent for January is Terri Apodaca with over $1 Million in closings.
Terri – One lesson learned from my last transaction is the importance of clear and frequent communication and transparency throughout the entire process. Ensuring that all parties involved have a thorough understanding of the terms, conditions, and expectations and revisiting those items often can help prevent misunderstandings and disputes down the line if circumstances change for one party. This includes being upfront about potential costs, timelines, and any possible challenges that may arise.

Every interaction I have with a customer has the potential to present what might seem like an obstacle. However, these obstacles provide invaluable insights, allowing me to anticipate scenarios where proactive measures may be necessary. Establishing an environment of open communication and transparency is key to effectively navigating these challenges and achieving successful outcomes for all involved.
