Still dont think a Realtor will be helpful when buying New Construction in Jacksonville or St. Johns County?

Why wouldn't you have one on your side?!  They're free and they aren't employed by the builder like the site agent is.

Call or email a Round Table Agent today where most of our agents worked as site agents for homebuilders in the past, bringing an experience level to your side of the table that would be incredible.

You need a Realtor BEFORE you start touring and trying to explore this stuff yourself.  Once you're under contract, you are too late to get yourself this advocate so before stepping foot into the waters get yourself a Lifeguard on Duty.  Call a Round Table Agent today!
