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.

Introducing the Newest Division of Davidson Property Management: Estate Services

November 16, 2022

 | 

Your home is likely one of the most expensive assets that you own, so naturally caring for your home is a top priority. That care and attention is even more essential when you and your family are away from home. Whether you are embarking on an extended vacation or a snowbird, you need a trusted name to ensure your home is properly well-maintained. The new Davidson Estate Services division was created to provide peace of mind for homeowners. For more than thirty years, the Davidson Companies have established a reputation in Northeast Florida that emulates trust and respect.

 

When you and your family are away, trust Davidson Estate Services to keep an eye on your home and those servicing it. Monthly and Pay-per-Visit options provide homeowners with tailored services to meet their needs. The Monthly Service is perfect for snowbirds or second homeowners. This service provides a weekly home visit. Each weekly visit will include a visual review and at that time all faucets will be run, all toilets will be flushed, and a report with photos of any trouble areas along with photos of any repairs will be delivered to the homeowner. On a monthly basis, the dishwasher and washing machine will be run and HVAC filters will be changed. Miscellaneous tasks such as watering plants and lawn or checking the mail can also be provided. The Pay-per-Visit service is ideal for vacationers. Homeowners will pay for each visit to the home to complete needed tasks. Davidson Estate Services also provides hourly services to assist homeowners with coordinating painters, contractors, and other general service providers to provide access to the property and oversight of the project.

 

“Your home is your safe haven and ensuring it’s properly maintained while you are away is the top priority of the Davidson Estate Services division. We will be the “boots on the ground” to make sure everything in your home is working properly and any maintenance services done to your home are completed correctly. Unfortunately, the quality of service is nearly impossible to assess when you are away. Davidson Estate Services will provide a trusted eye to ensure services are done to your satisfaction,” shares Sam Davidson, Davidson Companies Vice President of Special Operations. “Our goal is to care for your home. Davidson Estate Services is committed to keeping the homes of our Northeast Florida neighbors in pristine condition so you and your family can come home knowing there won’t be any unexpected surprises.”

 

From buying and selling your home to keeping your property in tip-top shape while you are away, trust the Northeast Florida experts at Davidson. Learn more about our new Estate Services division by calling (904) 484-2170.

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.

“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 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!

October 26, 2022

 | 

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!

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.
