One advantage to working in general real estate is learning about new areas of Jacksonville. I live at Ponte Vedra Beach and am familiar with areas close to where I live however I recently started working with a new customer who's daughter is relocating to the Jacksonville area for school. The parents wanted to purchase a place for their daughter instead of having her rent since she will be here 4 years. She either wanted something close to the beach or something in the Riverside area where she could walk to the shops. I spent three days driving around the Riverside area to make sure I didn't miss any home(s) that might be perfect for them. While in the area, I discovered a wonderful restaurant at 5 Points called Cozy Tea. I was too late for lunch, so enjoyed a scrumptious desert and look forward to revisiting for lunch. Each day in general real estate is a wonderful adventure of meeting new people and discovering new places.
