Aphora on the Intracoastal offers another upscale waterfront high-rise option.Aphora on the Intracoastal offers another upscale waterfront high-rise option.

Aphora at Marina San Pablo is has started sales and they're brisk. They start construction this year on the upscale 57-unit condominium project just west of the Intracoastal Waterway off of J.Turner Butler Blvd. 
Bove LLC and Remi Properties, who built the 5 Thousand Apartments at the St. Johns Town Center, are building and developing Aphora, the $600,000 to $2 million condos, ranging from 2,500 square feet to 5,200 square feet among nine floor plans.



Las Colinas in St. Augustine is a friendly neighborhood with a friendly price point.
No CDD fees and low HOA fees make Las Calinas an attractive alternative for St. Johns County living near St. Augustine. 
Las Calinas, a new home development in St. Johns County, has some hooks to it that are going to bring on the buyers, not the least of which are no CDD fees, and a (very) low HOA fee that's around $475 per year. Compare this $40 a month to the $400-ish HOAs in many other communities of this ilk, and people tend to sit up and take notice.

To be clear, this is no Nocatee, so you won't hear about a "Las Calinas lifestyle." But if Nocatee is the state-of-mind community in St. Johns/Ponte Vedra, wherein residents have a sort of spiritual connection to time and place, Las Calinas residents may identify with the pure practicality of living in the cozy woods of St. Johns County on a very relaxed budget.


Ten years later, St. Johns Town Center see its long awaited expansion.
Ten years after it was established, the first major expansion of St. Johns Town Center is on the drawing board. 
It's been about 10 years since the 200-acre St. Johns Town Center in the city's Southside was established, and set the standard for what an upscale shopping destination in Jacksonville should look like. After a market slowdown, and a new full service Nordstrom's installed, the expansion that was always expected may now come to fruition. 
Thinking about Palencia? This one's for you.
There are three price points: Classic, Imperial and Executive Collections.

Located off U.S. 1, Phillips Highway, Palencia North by Lennar offers easy access to beaches and St. Augustine. It takes full advantage of its Palencia location, within walking distance of the 40-acre Village Center and The Palencia Club, with a 33,000 sq. ft. clubhouse and 72-par, 18-hole Arthur Hill designed golf course.


David Weekley has three quick move-ins ready in Crosswater.
Crosswater at Pablo Bay is now 73% sold out, and three quick move-ins have been released  by David Weekley.

Cornerstone, Mattamy, David Weekley and Providence have all experienced robust sales, with Providence looking at the successful end of a great run in Crosswater.

HOA fees are remarkably low, at less than $60 per month, and there are no CDD fees. 


Terra Costa is located about halfway between downtown and the beaches.
Terra Costa is five miles west of Jacksonville Beach, on Beach Boulevard.

Terra Costa by Standard Pacific is helping re-invigorate the Beach Blvd. and JTB corridor much like Tamaya by ICI is doing, and new developments like Crosswater on San Pablo and Vizcaya on Kernan. It's about five miles from the beach and like Vizcaya, Terra Costa's first phase will be all Villa Homes -- attached, two homes per building, no maintanance townhome alternatives.
Terra Costa is decidedly upscale, compared to other Villa Homes such as Vizcaya and Montevilla.
Terra Costa is similar to Standard Pacific's Montevilla in Bartram, it's a more upscale offering, with tile roofs and pavers standard.  

It's a great format for this part of the Florida, so much like single family homes, yet governed as condos. For most people this means low maintenance, because the yard is taken care of, as well as common areas, just like a townhome or condo. Besides the format, the Standard Pacific designs are practical. In the two-story models, the owner suites are all first floor. In fact, everything is on the first floor. They're designed for minimum use of stairs, such that guests and kids can head upstairs to leave the downstairs for round the clock living.



New Nocatee-centered website
Bloom Realty is unveiling a brand new homebuyer website, highights the Jacksonville real estate success story that is Nocatee. There are the builders, the styles, formats, neighborhoods, ever-changing buyer incentives, price points and types of amenities. 


St. Johns County led the way in 2014 growth for new building permits.
The Northeast Florida Builders Association (NEFBA) recently reported that the number of building permits pulled in 2014 was the highest since 2007.  
The Palazzo at St. Johns re-emerges
The Palazzo at St. Johns is the new iteration of the Goodby's Creek luxury condo development at Baymeadows and San Jose.

Now selling fast. The Palazzo on St. Johns is a testament to the revitalization of new condo construction in Jacksonville real estate. Originally constructed as The Cove at St. Johns at San Jose and Baymeadows, all progress stopped in 2010 during the market slump (along with progress on The Shipyards, Berkman Plaza II, East San Marco, etc.)  In September 2013, it re-emerged with a new owner and a new name -- The Palazzo on St. Johns. (Berkman Plaza II now planning to re-emerge as well, halted in 2007).


Before and after, 1220 Cherry Street kitchen remodeled with marble countertops and subway tile backsplash.
Another 1920's vintage bungalow has been brought back to life at 1220 Cherry Street in Avondale. It's just a few hundred feet from Willowbranch Park, and a short walk to the great Park-and-King Avondale eating and drinking spots

Like I said in my video testimonial I am almost at a loss for words when speaking about my experience with Nextage Team Realty. I was in a tight situation and needed to get his house sold fast due to my new job in St. Louis. I contacted Joi at Nextage and we were able to get his house under contract in less than two weeks. Just amazing. Thanks again.
