Congratulations to all our Top Producers for October!

November 23, 2022

 | 

In the spirit of giving with the holiday season quickly approaching, Davidson Realty wants to express our gratitude for all of our wonderful agents who work tirelessly to serve their customers and community in the ever-changing real estate market.  We especially want to recognize our top performers for October and share with you some of their most memorable experiences in real estate they are grateful for.  Read on as we acknowledge them for their achievements, and they share their heartfelt memories.

 

 

Our Top Producer for October with over $1.7 million in closings is Liz Pappaceno.

 

 

 

 

 

Liz – My most memorable experiences that I had in my real estate career is more than one with the same customers.  I met them when I was working rental in the Fall of 2014.  They were a British couple moving to Northeast Florida from North Carolina.  I was trying to find them a rental before they went back to North Carolina.  We found something on their last day here.  They applied for the property but did not have any way of getting the funds to the Property Management Company quickly for them to process the rental application.  I drove to the property management company’s office and paid the rental application fee in order for their application to be processed so they could secure the rental. 

 

They did pay me back in abundance.  The story continues.

 

 In 2017 I assisted them when they were ready to purchase their first home in the United States.  After showing them many homes, I showed them a house which was my listing (It was also my personal property).  During the Inspection process another home in the neighborhood came on the market which I thought was better suited for them.  They decided they liked the other house better.  I allowed them out of the contract and returned their escrow to them allowing them to buy the other home which they did.

 

They have referred me to many customers over the years but what I am most grateful for is their friendship.  If it was not for my real estate business, I would have never met them.  I am truly grateful for them and for all the other friends I now have if it was not for my real estate career.

I am truly blessed.

 

 

 

 

Our Top Producing and Top Sales Team for October is The Nemethy Group with Shelley and Tim Nemethy.

Servant Leaders: The Hutson Companies Support Davidson Cares Clay Day

November 15, 2022

 | 

The Hutson Companies has been a major sponsor for Davidson Cares Clay Day from the beginning. In 2018, The Hutson Companies committed to matching up to $40,000 as an additional contribution to St. Augustine Youth Services (SAYS), one of the local organizations that benefit from Davidson Cares Clay Day. More than $52,000 was raised that year and the incredible efforts by SAYS to assist at-risk youth were further supported thanks to The Hutson Companies.

 

The partnership between Davidson Realty and The Hutson Companies spans many years. From helping The Hutson Companies sell farmland in Elkton and Hastings to, most recently, commercial land in OakLeaf Plantation, the respect and trust between Davidson Realty and The Huston Companies has formed a thriving friendship.

 

“David and Nancy Hutson are extremely generous and support numerous local charities. They give from the heart and fly under the radar to avoid recognition, but their contributions to the Northeast Florida community are staggering,” shares Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson. “David Hutson is a true real estate visionary. He has built homes and developed stunning communities for many years. His work is exceptional and the team at Davidson is proud to call him an industry partner.”

 

The Hutson Companies is known for developing family-friendly communities while being both environmentally and financially conscious. Since 1973, The Hutson Companies has developed dozens of residential communities in Northeast Florida to total more than 20,000 home sites. The Hutson Companies is presently developing projects in Clay, Duval, and St. Johns Counties. 

 

“Davidson Cares Clay Day provides an incredible opportunity for The Hutson Companies to both give back to the community and spend time together outside of the office. We admire the planning of the event. Every year the Davidson family manages to create a relaxed, enjoyable environment for the participants without ever losing sight of why we are there: to help those in need. Clay Day is an event we look forward to all year for both the friendly competition and the opportunity to associate with our industry partner,” shares Cody Hutson of The Hutson Companies. 

 

Davidson Cares Clay Day is proud to have the support and sponsorship from The Hutson Companies as they continue to do incredible work in Northeast Florida. To learn more about The Hutson Companies visit their website at www.hutsoncompanies.com or call (904) 429-9965.

 

Davidson Cares Clay Day

The 7th Annual Davidson Cares Clay Day was held on October 20, 2022, at Jacksonville Clay Target Sports. Davidson Cares Clay Day included two-sport shooting events, beginner skeet, and sporting clay. Individuals and teams from beginner to expert levels participated.

 

In association with the event, there was a raffle contest. Prizes included a 65-quart YETI cooler with 13 full-size liquors and a 12-Gauge Beretta A400 XCEL Sporting shotgun.

 

Money raised from the event and raffles went directly to Builders Care, St. Augustine Youth Services (SAYS), Investing in Kids (INK!), Port in the Storm Homeless Youth Center, and Hope is Restored.

Congratulations to all our Top Producers for September & the Third Quarter!

Davidson Realty is proud to announce our top real estate agents for September and for the 3rd Quarter of 2022.  Read on as our best share their professional insights on some of the most sought-after questions in our local Northeast Florida market right now.

 

 

 

Our Top Producer for September and the 3rd Quarter is Suzy Evans with $2.3 million in closings.  Q&A with Suzy:

 

 

 

 

Q – How do you stay up to date with current trends and best practices?

Suzy – Living in St. Johns County and selling real estate from Jacksonville to Palm Coast I spend many miles in my car.  Saturating this time listening to podcasts and participating in the social network “Clubhouse” I am able to connect with realtors & supporting professionals all over the country. As part of this round table of agents we are able to share best practices, new ideas and experiences.  As a CRS, Certified Residential Specialist I am afforded the opportunity for extensive advanced continuing education to stay on top of local and National market trends.   Frequent communications with my preferred mortgage lenders keep me informed of influential factors in mortgage rates. 

 

 

 

 

 

Davidson’s Top Producing and Top Sales Team for September and the 3rd Quarter is The Nemethy Group (Shelley & Tim Nemethy) with $3.5 million in sales.  Q&A with Shelley & Tim:

 

 

 

Q – What are some examples of home projects that will increase the value of a home before selling?

Shelley & Tim – A buyer is attracted to a well-maintained house. In our experience, they don’t mind as much dealing with some upgrades if the home’s major components will not be a concern for them (Roof, HVAC, Hot Water Heater, Plumbing, Electrical).  We always like to walk through the house with the seller and ask them to look at it as if they were the potential buyers. Buyers are pickier as the market adjusts and it is so important to present a clean home that smells good. Invest in having a deep professional clean, put some fresh paint on the walls and baseboards and replace or clean any carpets, if necessary. Finally, think about the curb appeal. The landscaping should be pleasing to the eye as the potential buyer walks up to the house. Don’t forget about the backyard, as well!

Davidson Realty is proud to announce our top real estate agents for August.  Read on as our best for August share their professional insights on some of the most sought-after questions in our local Northeast Florida market right now.

 

 

 

Our Top Producer for July is Margherite Myers with $1.2 million in closings.  Q&A with Margherite:

 

 

 

 

Q – What is the best advice you can give for someone moving from out of state?

Margherite – Since I have done this 6 times personally there are many things to consider.   First – Schools, even if you do not have children, top rated schools bring better resales with the home you are about to purchase.   Price is a big consideration.  Proximity to shopping and hospitals is also a consideration.  I personally drive through areas at all times of the day to see which communities I am comfortable in.  I am patient so if you are interested in purchasing here in NE Florida I am here to assist.

Davidson Realty is proud to announce our top agents for the month of July.  Get to know our top real estate advisors with a special Q & A with them.

 

 

 

Our Top Producer (Closings) for July is Mirtha Barzaga with $1.7 million in closings.  Q&A with Mirtha:

 

 

 

 

Q1 – What advice do you have for anyone looking to buy right now?

Mirtha – Get Pre-approved or have your finances in order before you begin your search.  Learn the different areas.  Your agent can educate and serve as a valuable resource in discovering what is ideal for you.  Plan your time accordingly for either a re-sale or new construction purchase.  If you are selling and buying, use the same agent for both transactions so they can coordinate the timing for both. 

 

Q2 – What local charities are most important to you and why?

Mirtha – I support the St Johns County Homeless Coalition all the way, but also contribute to the American Cancer Society, the MS Foundation, the Alzheimer’s Association and the local Schools ROTC, Band or Sports programs.

 

Q3 – What is your favorite local beach spot and why?

Mirtha – Anastasia State Park, because it is surrounded by nature, and it just seems more natural.

 

 

 

 

 

Our Top Listing Agent is Margherite Myers with $900,000 listings sold. Q&A with Margherite:

 

 

 

 

Q1 – What is your favorite local restaurant and favorite dish to eat there?

Margherite – I have many favorite restaurants but I really enjoy going to the country club at TPC and ordering their flatbread with wine during Happy Hour .  They recommend great wines and they have become my favorites.    

Ford Garage is also a great local restaurant and of course Caps on the Water for great seafood.
