Kudos to the brave souls out there who have actually asked me, "How much do you charge?" Excellent question. I address some misconceptions.  

 

What does it really cost to work with a buyer's agent?

 

 

 
Nocatee is the third best selling Planned Unit Development (PUD) in the Nation.
 
Nocatee in the Third Best Selling Planned Development in the Nation.
 

Some stats on Nocatee, the third best selling planned development in the Nation:
 
  • 14 communities actively selling new homes.
  • Ten new home builders.
  • Six (plus) broad categories of buyers: new families, growing families, empty nesters, singles, professional couples, and seniors.


That makes for nearly 700 possible combinations of buyer, neighborhood and builder that Nocatee Certified® Agent must be ready to address when they're contacted to help a buyer navigate Nocatee.

And knowing what's available is just the half of it. 
 
An agent has to know what's coming. This is why the PARC group spends time and money to arm Nocatee Certified® Agents with the knowledge they need to help any potential home buyer in their community.
Old Still is located at the end of Baymeadows Road, East of I-295
Old Still offers a rare opportunity to build new, and stay close to Southside's shopping, dining and entertainment.

With Old Still, AV Homes has secured some prime real estate at the end of Baymeadows Road East, especially if you're interested in a brand new, upscale home in the $300's just 10 minutes from the St. Johns Town Center.  
 
The knock on many new homes communities South of town is that they're not near any of life's necessary services. Old Still is five minutes from the Publix on Baymeadows, and a variety of shopping and dining options closeby on Southside Boulevard. And the kicker is that it's less than a 10-minute drive to St. Johns' Town Center and Tinseltown.

Two very active Nocatee Builders, Mattamy and David Weekley, are building in Lakeside.

Mattamy Homes is the latest builder to expand in Nocatee, joining David Weekley Homes in Nocatee's Lakeside neighborhood. Lakeside is one of the most affordable neighborhoods in Nocatee, and one of the most convenient.
 
It's in the Nocatee Town Center area, and very close to shopping and dining.  And that list of dining destinations is growing quickly, with great restaurants like The Loop ready to build near the Nocatee Town Center.

Colorful and cool dishes are some of the headliners at the Kitchen in San Marco
One of the cool, colorful salads at The Kitchen in San Marco -- Citrus marinated fresh fish and tomatoes.

The Kitchen in San Marco is a new and notable gastropub in the heart of San Marco. It's notable because it's more than a restaurant. It's a place where aspiring chefs from Culinard, part of the Culinary Institute of Virginia College, hone their preparation and presentation skills, and share some food-love with the paying public.
 
The Kitchen in San Marco, now open for lunch and dinner on San Marco Blvd.
The Kitchen in San Marco is located near the intersection of San Marco Blvd and Nira Streets.

The Jacksonville Culinard program is not well known, but it should be, and the Kitchen in San Marco will be a showplace for it's locally grown talent. Culinard is serious learning for serious professionals, with accreditation from the American Culinary Federation Education Foundation.
