July 13, 2022

 | 

It was not just the weather heating up here in Northeast Florida, June was another sizzling month for our Davidson Realty team finishing the second quarter of this year very strong!  We are especially proud of our top performers who have been working tirelessly to help people buy and sell property in our local market and beyond. Enjoy our Q & A with these special real estate advisors!

 

 

 

Our Top Producer (Closings) for June and the quarter as well as Top Overall Sales for June and Top Buyer Sales for the quarter is Mirtha Barzaga.  Mirtha had over $7.4 Million in closings to end the quarter on a high note.

 

 

 

Q&A with Mirtha:

 

Q1 – In your opinion what’s the coolest design trend you are seeing in homes today?

Mirtha – Flooring has become a big trend, the vinyl plank or wood tile throughout the house is the best way to go.  Painted cabinets are a big trend as well as quartz counter tops and outdoor design living spaces.

Selling Across Northeast Florida

January 12, 2022

 | 

Since 1989, Davidson Realty has established itself as one of the leading real estate brokerages in Northeast Florida. Davidson Realty attributes much of their success to their value of people above everything else. With more than forty dedicated agents, Davidson Realty has served thousands of clients across Northeast Florida and is grateful to have had the opportunity to service the entire First Coast in 2021.

 

“Looking back 2021 was a crazy year,” shares Mirtha Barzaga, Davidson Realty Top Producing Agent. “The fact that the market was hot didn’t mean more sales and less work. On the contrary, the lack of inventory and the inflated prices drove a lot of buyers into remission.” With a market that proved to be competitive, Davidson Realty ensured their clients received TOP dollar for homes across Northeast Florida.

 

World Golf Village

945 Registry Boulevard Unit #302, St. Augustine, Florida 32092

With the help of Mirtha Barzaga, this beautiful, well-maintained, furnished unit in King & Bear sold for $232,000. Its lovely views and cozy balcony captivated home seekers. The extensive community amenities were the cherry on top to help this listing sell quickly. 

 

220 Presidents Cup Way Unit #204, St. Augustine, Florida 32092

In the heart of World Golf Village, you will find this upgraded and updated condo in The Legends. There was a lot to love about this home from the glass-enclosed lanai to the custom closets throughout. Lynn Whitley was the listing agent for this home which sold for more than $240,000. 

 

250 Holland Drive, St. Augustine, Florida 32095

This five-bedroom, four-bathroom home went through more than five weeks of improvements before going on the market. The hard work paid off when it sold in a flash for Rebecca Schaffer and her California-based clients. 

 

Ponte Vedra Beach 

695 A1A North Unit #117, Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida 32082

After being on the market for only NINE days, this move-in-ready Ponte Vedra Beach condo in The Fountains sold for $5,000 over list price thanks to listing agent Suzy Evans. Being just steps from the beach and near the large amenity center certainly helped attract attention to this property. 

 

Northside

319 Northside Drive South, Jacksonville, Florida 32218

Behind the gates of Pine Lakes, you’ll find this spacious, open floorplan home that sold in only EIGHT days and for $7,000 over list price. Yana Austin and her clients piqued prospective buyers’ interest with the property’s three-car garage, close proximity to the amenity center, and low HOA fees. 

 

Middleburg

2985 Chase Ridge Drive, Middleburg, Florida 32068

Listed by Shelley and Tim Nemethy, this brick beauty in Middleburg sold for $351,500 in October. This meticulously maintained cul-de-sac home had captivating features including an updated kitchen, thoughtful layout, and enormous fenced backyard.  

 

Palm Coast 

500 Canopy Walk Lane Unit #535, Palm Coast Florida, 32137

Overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway you’ll find this three-bedroom, two-bathroom end unit that provides stunning panoramic sunrise views. This window-lined unit draws in plenty of natural sunlight making it the perfect place to relax. Listing agent Mirtha Barzaga helped her clients sell this property for $440,000. 

 

Mandarin

12160 Chaseborough Way, Jacksonville, Florida 32258

In just THREE days this beautifully renovated pool home in Greenland Chase SOLD for more than $12,000 over list price – thanks to listing agents Shelley and Tim Nemethy! Positioned on a cul-de-sac and complete with stunning white cabinetry and granite, this three-bedroom, three-bathroom home quickly received multiple offers.

 

Intracoastal West

13176 Wexford Hollow Road North, Jacksonville, Florida 32224

Nestled between the 11th and 12th Jacksonville Golf and Country Club golf green, you’ll find this stunning executive estate. With more than $250,000 recently spent on renovations, this six-bedroom and four-bathroom, received multiple attractive offers. Caitlyn Hawkins was the listing agent that secured the sale of this home. 

 

Agents like Barzaga had to be extremely efficient and creative in this very competitive market. “I had a client this year from California who was looking for an investment property. I was able to write the contract remotely, complete their inspections, closed the transaction by mail, and put the property on the rental market for them – all this without them coming to Florida,” said Barzaga. “2021 was an interesting year in real estate, every day brought new challenges that the Davidson Realty team worked to overcome together.”

 

From Middleburg to Palm Coast and everywhere in between, Davidson Realty has the real estate experts to help you buy or sell your home with ease in 2022. There is no question Davidson Realty is equipped to serve you. Call the Davidson Realty team today at (904) 940-5000. 

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR TOP PRODUCERS FOR JUNE & THE 2ND QUARTER!

July 12, 2021

 | 

The Northeast Florida real estate market continues to be very exciting. We still have a limited supply of homes and very high buyer demand. The sellers are definitely in the best position in this market and there is very little flexibility when asking for an extension because of a delay with a survey, appraiser or lender. This market requires a very skilled Realtor to handle all the moving parts to get a home to closing in a timely manner. The dynamics of this market make it even more difficult to find buyers a home and get it successfully closed under the terms of the contract.

 

I say all of the above, to emphasize the achievements of the top agents we are recognizing this month and quarter. The agents at Davidson Realty are working tirelessly for their customers.

 

The Top Producer and Top Sales Agent for June is Mirtha Barzaga. Mirtha is also the Top Producer, Top Sales and Top Lister for the 2nd quarter. Mirtha had $6.3 Million in closings and $7.3 Million in sales for the quarter helping 17 customers close their home either buying or selling. If you need any assistance buying or selling, give Mirtha a call.

How Downsizing Your Home Can Upgrade Your Life

May 7, 2021

 | 

If the COVID-19 taught us anything, it’s to appreciate the simple things of life. As millions of Americans have adjusted to a more simplified lifestyle, the notion that ‘less is more’ resonates more than ever before. Downsizing could be exactly what you need to maximize your life. 

 

“Many people downsize once they become empty nesters. Once their children have left the nest, homeowners begin to desire lightening their load,” shares Davidson Realty Realtor ®, Rebecca Schaffer

 

Perhaps the most obvious advantages of downsizing are financial. Selling your property with the intention of buying something smaller often means you have more money to afford upgrades in your new home that matter most to you.  But the savings don’t stop there. With less square feet under your roof, you’ll likely be spending less on your mortgage payment, utilities, and maintenance on your home. That extra cash in your pocket each month can help you go on vacations or have other experiences that will make lasting memories. 

 

Less house equals less upkeep. The time you would have spent cleaning and maintaining your home will now be cut significantly. Decreasing your space also means decreasing your belongings. Prior to your move, sort through items and only keep your more treasured pieces. A weight will be lifted off your shoulders as you say goodbye to the clutter and unused stuff that has occupied your space. Donate any items you are no longer keeping to those in need. A few of our favorite places to donate clothes and home goods are: Goodwill, BEAM Thrift, and Hope’s Closet

 

With less to worry about inside your home, the more time you can spend outside of your home. Spend your newfound free time to take up a new hobby, travel, and socialize with old and new friends. Northeast Florida is the perfect place to truly relax and live your best life. “Many downsizing buyers are taking advantage of Northeast Florida’s fifty-five and older communities for an active and social lifestyle. While others are opting for the beaches for a leisurely pace,” shares Davidson Realty Realtor ® Shelley Nemethy

 

From the beaches to the historic neighborhoods, there is something for everyone to enjoy. If you are interested in maximizing your life by minimizing your home, call the Northeast Florida real estate experts at Davidson Realty at (904) 940-5000.
