Community First – MasterCraft Builder Group Supports Davidson Cares Clay Day

November 16, 2020

 | 

For many years, Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson heard about an incredible event and fundraiser called Clays for a Cause hosted by MasterCraft Builder Group. Mastercraft Builder Group put together the event for friends and trade partners to raise money for local charities while enjoying each other’s company at the same time.

 

Clays for a Cause and MasterCraft Builder Group have not only been major supporters of Davidson Cares Clay Day but truly the inspiration behind it. “I drew inspiration for Davidson Cares Clay Days from MasterCraft’s Clays for a Cause because of how wonderful and fruitful of an event Chris Shee, Founder and CEO of MasterCraft Builder Group, had put together with this team. When I decided I wanted to do something similar, I reached out to Chris and he provided me the insight that allowed me to create an event that was our own,” shares Sherry.

 

With deep roots in Northeast Florida, MasterCraft Builder Group appreciates the importance of being an integral part of this community and giving back. MasterCraft Builder Group is a semi-custom builder and community developer that specializes in thoughtful designs and exceptional quality to meet the needs of the modern family by providing luxury living at an affordable price. MasterCraft Builder Group currently has homes in RiverTown, TrailMark, SilverLeaf, Shearwater, and Madeira. For the second year in a row, MasterCraft Builder Group has been proudly named the “Best Home Builder” in St. Augustine.

 

“Whenever I think of Chris Shee, I remember when he told me ‘You can’t out give God’. That has stuck with me and I am constantly inspired by his good work and dedication to our community,” Sherry Davidson said. Chris Shee and his team definitely have giving hearts. This year, MasterCraft Builder Group partnered with nonprofit Builders Care to build the 2020 Home From The Heart and will be donating more than $100,000 to the organization to support their mission to provide affordable to no-cost construction services to the elderly, disabled, and other nonprofits in Northeast Florida.

 

Davidson Cares Clay Day is proud to have the support and sponsorship from MasterCraft Builder Group as they continue to support local charities. To learn more about MasterCraft Builder Group, visit their website at mastercraftbuildergroup.com or call (904) 295-1604.

In 2016, Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson decided to put together a clay shoot fundraiser to support worthy causes. “I had no idea if anyone would want to be a sponsor,” Sherry said. “My first call was to Chris Wood (co-owner of Riverside Homes). He supported us with the largest sponsorship and has continued to generously do so every year since!”

 

The relationship between Davidson Realty and Riverside Homes is longstanding and built on a foundation of mutual respect. Davidson Realty and Riverside Homes often collaborate on projects and have enjoyed developing a strong relationship.

 

From lunch and learn opportunities to wine and appetizer events, Riverside Homes regularly invites Davidson Realty agents to their model homes throughout Northeast Florida to share information about new developments and floor plan designs. Riverside Homes is always a gracious host that, simply, does things right! Recently, Riverside Homes and Davidson Realty teamed up to create a series of videos to highlight the features and amenities of one of the newest communities in St. Johns County, SilverLeaf.

 

Riverside Homes is a locally-owned and award-winning home builder in Jacksonville, Florida with over 15 years of new home building experience including the 2019 Southern Living Idea House in Amelia Island, FL.

“Riverside Homes is special. Chris Wood and Matt Roberts (owners of Riverside Homes) are genuine, caring, and filled with integrity. They are amazing people to do business with. What truly amazes me about this team is the respect and relationships they have with other builders who are their competitors,” Sherry continues.

Every year more and more people choose a career in real estate because of its flexibility, opportunities for career growth, earning potential, and job satisfaction. In an industry where success stems from hard work and a strong network, it is essential to be a part of a brokerage that can provide the resources to take your career to the next level.

 

Since 1989, Davidson Realty has been among Northeast Florida’s top real estate brokerages. What sets Davidson Realty apart is its focus and dedication to their agents. By providing ongoing, extensive training programs, agents are continuously sharpening their skills and knowledge of industry trends. “The professional support and the continued focus on industry education is invaluable,” shares longtime Davidson Realty Agent Jennifer Todd. Both new and experienced agents receive the technical and marketing support they need from in-house mentors who share their own industry knowledge. “Davidson Realty provides expertise in every aspect of the real estate industry, from land acquisition, development, permitting, construction, and sales. There is never a time when a question comes up and I don’t have someone to reach out to for support”, Todd continues. Davidson Realty provides the tools to ensure clients receive an exceptional experience and agents reach their goals.

 

Voted the area’s #1 “Best Place to Work” by Jacksonville Business Journal, Davidson Realty understands the importance of having confidence from the team members of your brokerage.

We have watched our children graduate from high school together, shared weddings, and the arrival of grandchildren. We have supported each other through family illnesses and the loss of family members. Jim Davidson even offered to sit with my son-in-law for the night shift while going through leukemia treatment. We laugh together, we cry together, and we celebrate our successes together.” Jennifer’s story is just one of many in the Davidson Realty team.

Business Spotlight: Burlock & Barrel Distillery

May 27, 2020

 | 

I had the absolute pleasure of finding out, through a friend, about the new distillery in Downtown Jacksonville called “Burlock & Barrel”. Opening their doors in December 2019 and located in the Brooklyn area of downtown Jacksonville (417 Magnolia Street Jacksonville, FL 32204) owners Ian Haensly & Colin Edwards have been distilling three unique & all hand-crafted spirits.

 

The history of their name runs deep with Jacksonville bootlegging, but let’s just say they are “the real McCoy”! Their three trademark spirits are B&B Reserve, Whisper “2019 Double Gold Medal Winner ~ John Barleycorn Awards” & Whim Brand. The Whim Brand has two handcrafter flavors, Honey & Jalapeño Honey, both infused with natural local honey.  All different in their own respect, Burlock & Barrel delivers a spirit for everyone entirely in house.

 

        

 

Since opening in December and the COIVD-19 Pandemic happening shortly after, Ian & Colin had to adjust their business plan and started to produce hand sanitizer in their distillery as well. Using the FDA provided guidelines, Ian & Colin have been providing local businesses & residents with hand sanitizer while there is a shortage in other stores.

Keep your home safe by reinforcing these home entry points

April 28, 2020

 | 

Thanks to video doorbell systems, we are now paying more attention to home security. We’ve all seen the videos online of would-be burglars and scammers caught by high-tech front porch security systems.

 

The only problem? These camera systems don’t actually prevent criminals from accessing your home. Even in gated neighborhoods and master-planned communities throughout Jacksonville and St. Augustine, home break-ins can and do happen—anywhere.

 

 

In addition to installing a home security system to alert the authorities of suspicious activity, it is important to deter criminals from even gaining access in the first place.

 

Here are a few ways you can increase protection at your home’s main entry points.

 

Garage door

The garage door is one of the most vulnerable entry points in a home! An amateur burglar can easily open it by drilling a hole in the door (or breaking a glass window, if applicable) and using a long hook tool to pull the emergency release wire. Once the wire has been pulled, the door disengages and can be opened manually in just seconds. This goes for heavy-duty garage doors as well; the spring system works to counter the door’s weight.
