The Winning Team – Davidson Realty 2020 Awards

February 19, 2021

 | 

2020. The year of adapting to the unknown. A global pandemic, millions of jobs lost, and a volatile economy, did not stop the real estate market from being swarmed by millions of Americans hoping to take advantage of the positive market trends and record-setting numbers.

 

The Davidson Realty Team powered through the uncertainty, the “social distancing”, and changing market trends to deliver quality real estate services to their clients. “Our team at Davidson Realty continued to stay connected to our customers during the crazy Covid year we had”, shared Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson. Agents gracefully navigated 2020 as they were presented with multiple offer situations due to the competitive nature of the market. Along with the excellent real estate service the Davidson Realty Team was providing, they continued to serve the Northeast Florida community, when they perhaps needed it the most. “Our team organized and participated in food and toy drives, Davidson Cares Clay Day, and Deck The Chairs. The passion our team has for serving others is inspiring. With all that our team faced in 2020, I am proud that the Davidson Realty team has matched the 2019 closing volume of $100,000,000 and exceeded 2019 sales volume by 16%,” continues Sherry. With such an exceptional year for the Davidson Realty team, it is only right that their best and brightest are recognized for their accomplishments in service and performance. The success of this team is made in part by the incredible leadership team at Davidson Realty, notably Sherry Davidson and Davidson Realty Sales and Training Manager, Andrea Gallagher.

 

Last month, Davidson Realty President Sherry Davidson was named the 2020 Northeast Florida Association of Realtors (NEFAR) Circle of Honor award winner for her exceptional service and contributions to the real estate community both locally and statewide. Sherry has served NEFAR in various capacities including on its Board of Directors. She has also served on the Board of Directors for Builders Care, a charitable arm of the Northeast Florida Builders Association (NEFBA). Throughout her 30-year career in real estate, Sherry has supported real estate agent education and promoted the importance of the real estate industry’s involvement in the community. Sherry truly has led by example as she has supported various causes in Northeast Florida including NEFAR Fights Hunger and Davidson Cares Clay Day. Known throughout the First Coast as an industry leader and an authority in residential real estate, the Davidson Realty Team continues to flourish under her mentorship.

Davidson Realty Welcomes New Agent Shauna Huddleston

December 14, 2020

 | 

“Only a life lived in service to others is worth living.” Albert Einstein. 

 

Serving others has been instilled in Shauna Huddleston from an early age. The Jacksonville native spent most of her childhood traveling the world as her father was in the United States Air Force before eventually settling back in Saint Augustine, Florida. 

 

Shauna spent twenty-five years in the medical field using her passion of caring for the well-being of others every day. Shauna retired in 2015 from the healthcare field and quickly found excitement for property management. After spending nearly five years helping people find their perfect apartment home, Shauna Huddleston is fulfilling her grandmother’s wish to pursue a career in real estate and Davidson Realty is thrilled that she has joined our team of real estate experts. 

 

“Shauna is a great and very welcomed addition to our team. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience having a background in property management services,” shares Andrea Gallagher, Davidson Realty Sales, and Training Manager. “Transitioning into a full-service real estate advisor helping customers buy, sell or rent seems only fitting and natural for her skill set and abilities.” 

 

For Shauna, Davidson Realty was the perfect fit. “I had an immediate connection with Sherry Davidson and the rest of the team. I felt led to join the brokerage as we share the same passions and core values. I am excited to share my passion for this area and help others find their dream homes,” shares Shauna. Shauna looks forward to continuing to serve her community as a member of the Davidson Realty family. 

 

In her spare time, Shauna loves spending time with her family and friends. Shauna has been married for twenty years to a retired St. Johns County Deputy Sheriff and has two amazing children, two “bonus” kids, and a three-year-old Chihuahua! Some of Shauna’s favorite activities include traveling, camping, snorkeling, and paddleboarding. Shauna is also very active in the community and tries to do as much charitable work as possible. 

 

Shauna works out of the Davidson Realty World Golf Village Office. If you are interested in buying or selling your home, give Shauna a call today!

Davidson Realty Welcomes New Agent Kim Baum

November 19, 2020

What qualities do you expect from your realtor? Experience? Commitment to understand your needs? A willingness to provide you with a level of service that ensures you will refer them to your friends and family? An understanding of your community and what makes your home valuable? Our new Davidson Realty Agent, Kim Baum, checks all of those boxes.

 

Kim comes to Davidson Realty after an extensive career in education, most recently in the St. Johns County School District, and as a previous owner of several rental properties.

 

“After my first meeting with Kim I knew she would make an excellent addition to our team and was hoping she would choose Davidson Realty,” shares Andrea Gallagher, Davidson Realty Sales and Training Manager. “With her level of commitment and past years’ experiences working in our local school and community she embodies what we deem essential in being a great real estate advisor which is putting people first.”

 

The feeling was mutual as Kim felt right at home at Davidson Realty and truly respected the brokerage’s outstanding reputation. “I chose Davidson Realty because of their extensive training and mentor programs. They have a wonderful team of supportive agents and foster a family atmosphere which I really loved,” shares Kim. “I feel so grateful to be a part of the Davidson Realty team.”

 

After moving to the World Golf Village area of St. Augustine in 2004, Kim fell in love with Northeast Florida. “I truly enjoy living in Northeast Florida as it provides the perfect climate and an attractive pace of life. I look forward to sharing my knowledge of the area with my clients and welcoming newcomers to Northeast Florida!”

 

In her free time, Kim and her husband enjoy traveling the world and playing golf together as much as possible. Kim also has a huge heart for animals and has rescued many dogs, cats, and horses over the years.

WE’RE NOT LIKE OTHER REAL ESTATE TEAMS. IT’S THE DAVIDSON DIFFERENCE.

September 25, 2020

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. Davidson Realty is a local, family-owned organization that celebrates the success of its agents. “Davidson Realty takes pride in the family-style camaraderie we have nurtured with our agents and staff,” shares Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson. “That family culture coupled with our dynamic programming creates an environment where everyone helps each other. We all win, particularly our customers.”

 

Agents at Davidson Realty are drawn to the strong workplace community. Jennifer Todd, who began selling World Golf Village real estate in 2002, says there was no other real estate company she would have considered working with, and to this day she feels the same way. “The family environment at Davidson Realty is second to none. 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.

 

As families do, Davidson Realty’s team of agents love to have fun together. From outings to team-building contests, there is no shortage of excitement. An activities committee plans company-wide events that in the past have included Movie Nights, Kickball games, Bowling outings, St. Augustine Trolley Tour, and Jumbo Shrimp games. Davidson Realty and their agents also work together to continually give back to the community. Every other month, Davidson Realty’s World Golf Village office hosts a Blood Drive to benefit their community.

 

It’s clear that Davidson Realty is special. If you are interested in joining Davidson Realty’s team of real estate experts, contact Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson at 904-940-5000. Give yourself and your career the opportunity to thrive.
