May 29, 2020


Here at Davidson Realty we thought it would be neat to give you an inside view like no other to our fabulous team.  In this fun agent spotlight blog series we will be Playing 20 Questions where we get up close and personal with our agents.  Today we are featuring agent Mirtha Barzaga. 


1.) In three sentences or less tell us a little bit about yourself.

I am a focus business minded individual whose full-time job is real estate.

I care about my customer’s investment and wellbeing more than I care about the sale.

I know the North Florida area like the palm of my hand and that helps me in guiding my customers well.


2.) What do you like best about living here in Northeast Florida (can be specific area, i.e. WGV, Jax Beach, PVB, etc.)?

I love St. Johns County because of the relaxed, more suburban lifestyle, but like all of North Florida in general.  It is a melting pot of some of the nicest people from all over the country I have ever met.


3.) What is your favorite indoor or outdoor activity?

I love to garden! Over the past 15 years of living here I have converted my yard into an English garden.


4.) If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

I would love to learn how to put a cookbook together of my authentic Cuban Cuisine.


5.) What advice do you have for anyone looking to sell or buy right now?

If they are looking to sell I would tell them to get their home ready to get top dollar.  I am fortunate to have helped so many of my customers with this.  Knowing what buyers want and where sellers should invest in their home to get the maximum dollars in return is key!  


If they are buying I would stress the importance of getting pre-approved first with a reputable lender.  This will determine the price range they should be looking in and when they see a home they like they are in a strong position to put in an offer.


6.) What would you name the autobiography of your life?

Life is what you make of it!


7.) What three traits define you?

Honest, Loving, Generous.


8.) If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?

I would split it between my family and friends.


9.) In your opinion what is the coolest design trend you are seeing in homes today?

Outdoor living spaces.


10.) What would you be doing if you were not helping people buy or sell homes?

There is nothing I would rather do other than real estate, but if I were able to slow down, I would do more charity work and maybe travel a bit with the family.


11.) Where is your favorite place to be?

My home.


12.) If you could meet anyone living or dead, who would it be?

Coco Chanel

“Fashion is like a revolution-it only enters our lives after it has gone down in the streets.”


13.) If you could be any fictional movie or book character, who would it be?

Joan of Arc.


14.) What are your top 5 movies in no particular order?

  • Ghost
  • All the President’s Men
  • Jaws
  • Goodfellas
  • Forest Gump


15.) What are your top 5 favorite bands/artists or podcasts to listen to?

  • Elvis
  • Whitney Houston
  • Celine Dion
  • Diana Ross
  • Paul McCartney


16.) What book are you currently enjoying, and would you recommend it?

Make your Bed by Admiral William H. McRaven and yes, I definitely would recommend.


17.) Where is your favorite place to eat?

Caps with my family is my ideal spot. 


18.) If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Fish and Vegetables of any kind.


19.) What would you most like to tell yourself at age 13?

Be careful of the company you keep and the man you fall for.  They can shape your future.


20.) Lastly, what is your favorite thing about working in real estate?

The people I meet and the relationships I build!  Real Estate is not a job for me, it’s a big part of my life that I enjoy.  The money I make is secondary.
