    May was a really great month here at the Davidson Companies! We had over $11 million in closings, we were named Agency of Record for multiple Hutson Companies land holdings, and the Jacksonville Business Journal named us the #1 Best Place to Work, Small Company, in Jacksonville! Davidson Realty President Sherry Davidson said, “This recognition is such an honor because it’s based on employee feedback.” This is the third time Davidson has been named the number one Best Place to Work!

    The Jacksonville Business Journal believes the Davidson Companies have the right mix of work and fun and we couldn’t agree more! “At The Davidson Cos., the management team tries to balance work with fun. There are weekly cookouts, baseball contests, fundraisers and outings. The second Friday of every month, there is an employee luncheon, often a cookout with the founder, Jim Davidson, cooking the food. Everyone is welcome – family, friends and clients along with employees,” reports Correspondent Dargan Thompson of the Jacksonville Business Journal. We also have lots of fun on Wine Fridays, when our vendor friends come to mingle with us in our beautiful courtyard!

    The Best Places to Work survey is conducted annually by the Jacksonville Business Journal. Quantum Workplace, a third-party company that specializes in measuring workplace satisfaction, provides the rankings. The Best Places list was announced in the Business Journal’s May 31st issue.

    Davidson Realty’s Realtor training programs includeBuffini & Company’s Peak Producers class where our agents develop the habits, attitudes and skills of a Peak Producer and Holly Harvey, Closing Manager of the Law Offices of Curtis & Associates, leads a series of discussions to educate agents on contracts, surveys, title policies and more. In addition to that, we offer our new agents a Mentoring Program to get them on their feet in the real estate business. In the video above, Davidson Realty President Sherry Davidson and one of our excellent mentoring teams takes you through the benefits of our outstanding Mentoring Program.

    The Mentoring Program pairs a newer agent with a more experienced agent to assist them in learning the ways of the business. Mentee, Maxine Levy explains how experienced Realtor and mentor, Mirtha Barzaga helped her through the entire process from building her confidence to answering any questions she might have. Mirtha took Maxine to listing and showing appointments and all around town to learn the Northeast Florida area. As Maxine explains, “The mentor is your guide, not the book!”

    Mentors guide the new agents throughout the Mentoring process, getting them acquainted with the Davidson office and how to take full advantage of our helpful, full-time support staff. They teach their mentees the contracts and the MLS database. Mirtha believes it would take three times as long to get a new Realtor’s business rolling without our program.

    To learn more about starting your new career in real estate, please join us for one of our upcoming Career Opportunity Events. If you’d like more information on joining the Davidson Realty team, please give Sherry Davidson a call at (904) 940-5000.

    Winston Churchill said, “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.”  The agents here at Davidson Realty exemplify this belief by offering new agents mentoring services, a helping hand, so to speak, into the world of real estate in North Florida by giving them guidance on such things as the communities and the builders therein.

    One of our teams isRon Savarese and Amanda French. Amanda joined Davidson Realty in August of 2011. Her mentor Ron Savarese has been with us since December of 2009.  Amanda says that “Ron has taken the time to help me with different marketing strategies, paperwork, contracts and listing agreements.” Ron says he enjoys working with Amanda because of her enthusiasm and eagerness to learn. 

    Another team on board with the mentoring program, also our initial mentoring effort, is Maxine Levy and Mirtha Barzaga.  Maxine joined Davidson Realty in March of 2011, while Mirtha has been with us since July of 2007 and is one of our top producers. Hard work pays off and these two are definite proof that you can benefit from learning from one of the best.

    Davidson Realty is proud to have some top notch real estate agents as part of our team.  Not only are they good at what they do though, they are just flat out good people. Their readiness to take time out of their busy schedules to help others does not go unnoticed or unappreciated either! If you are looking to make a career in real estate – give us a call. You could become part of the Davidson family and glean the benefits of our mentoring program as well!  Contact Sherry Davidson, President of Davidson Realty to make a dream a reality. Call  904-940-5000 or email sdavidson@davidsonrealtyinc.com.
