Northeast Florida Market Update | April 2023

May 23, 2023


“Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.” Stephen Hawking


The real estate market has given us an incredible opportunity to adapt to change over the last few years.


The Northeast Florida Association of Realtors market stats for April show a slight increase in prices of homes, fewer closed and pending sales and a small increase in inventory.


The median sales price for April is $339,995 which is down 2.9% from last April and up 2.4% from March. In the National Association of Realtors first-quarter report, nearly seven out of 10 metro markets had home price gains.


Locally, active inventory of 5,938 homes is up 4.5% from March. Many of those homes are new construction and not completed. The supply of existing homes is very low because many homeowners with loans well below current mortgage rates are electing to stay in their homes.

April 5, 2022


Davidson Realty takes pride in the incredible team of agents that strive to provide expert real estate services in Northeast Florida. Learning and development never stop. On March 3rd, Lynn Whitley, one of Davidson Realty’s agents, earned the Gold Key Certification through the Northeast Florida Association of Realtors (NEFAR). The Gold Key Certification is earned by completing a course that equips Realtors ® with the tools to establish lasting relationships with their real estate colleagues, business partners, and customers.


“Since earning my license in the late 1990s, it has been my goal to provide a real estate experience that exceeds my customers’ expectations. Becoming Gold Key Certified offered a learning experience to target ways to increase my level of service and make buying and selling easier for the individuals involved,” shares Whitley. “The course covered a variety of topics including honesty, integrity, handling criticism, practicing humility, and learning to listen. The training received in the process of earning the Gold Key Certification will serve to make me a better communicator, listening to needs and rising to the expectations for high-quality customer service, in addition to making moral decisions concerning my customers’ housing needs and respect for confidentiality.”


Whitley, along with thirty-three other real estate professionals, was a part of the sixth NEFAR class to earn this prestigious certification since the program began a year ago. The class is taught by Cynthia DeLuca, a well-known instructor from Orlando. 


“Providing quality real estate services is a top priority at Davidson Realty. I am so proud of Lynn for successfully completing the Gold Key Certification course for both her own knowledge and for her clients’ benefit. Lynn is an exceptional agent and we are so fortunate to have her on our team,” shares Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson.

The agents at Davidson Realty continuously strive to provide superior real estate services to their clients. That effort is often recognized and applauded by their clients and peers.

Davidson Realty is proud of Mirtha Barzaga, Jennifer Todd, Liz Pappaceno, Candy Gil, Suzy Evans, Reba Barkley, and Margherite Myers for receiving this well-deserved award. 


Recipients of the Five Star Real Estate Agent award must satisfy five objective eligibility and evaluation criteria that are associated with real estate agents who provide quality services to their clients. Annually, the award process is conducted in each market. Recent homebuyers are asked to assess real estate agents that they have worked with and evaluate them based on ten criteria. The recent homebuyers are able to evaluate up to two real estate agents in order to measure the experience with both the purchase and sale side of a move. 


“The Davidson Realty team goes above and beyond for our clients. We are overjoyed that the efforts of seven of our agents were recognized as they receive the Five Star Real Estate Agent award,” shares Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson. “At Davidson Realty, putting our clients first is always our top priority!”

Official Groundbreaking of WGV Office Park Begins Countdown for Much-Needed Office Space in St. Johns County

March 7, 2022

Posted by in Events, News

Thursday, February 17 was an exciting day not only for the Davidson Companies but for the entire St. Johns County community as the ground was officially broken on the new WGV Office Park development!  Located at the entrance of the King & Bear, this five-building office park will total more than 44,000 square feet of much-needed office space in the area.


St. Johns County Commissioner, Jeremiah Blocker joined Davidson Realty and community supporters to celebrate the groundbreaking ceremony. During his remarks, Blocker shared his enthusiasm for the project, “This is what makes St. Johns County great. It’s businesses like this. So many people are going to have their dreams realized through this effort. I’m honored to have the Davidson family as friends. Thank you to them for everything they do for the community.” 


The anticipation for this groundbreaking has been building ever since the development was conceived. “We are incredibly excited to kick off this amazing project. We believe this will be another great addition to the World Golf Village. This project will bring much-needed services to our community” shares Sam Davidson, Realtor® at Davidson Realty and Vice President of Special Operations for Davidson Development. The addition of the WGV Office Park will provide the residents of World Golf Village a greater opportunity to work close to home and serve their friends, family, and neighbors. 


Occupants of the office park will have a space built to last as the buildings will have concrete block walls and Hollow Core System roofs. They will also be just across the street from Publix-anchored Shoppes at Murabella and a surrounding community that is growing fast both residentially and commercially. This project has been designed with spaces starting at 1,120 square feet and going up to 12,000 square feet, which allows for the ability to accommodate companies of all sizes.
