Six months ago if you were looking for a short sale in Orange Park or Jacksonville I may have tried to get you to look at foreclosures as a viable option. With banks now finally figuring out that some money is better than none, skilled REALTORS have been able to get the banks to negotiate. I have actually have had 2 short sales accepted with in the last 3 weeks. In the past it was taking 5 to 6 months to get an answer back from the lenders that were holding the notes. Response time has greatly improved for the better. Countrywide which is a large bank with multiple steps to go through to get an offer submitted, has been easier to work with lately. Response times can still be up to 90 days but it is not near as long as it was in the recent past. If you have a little time to wait you coul...

Don't miss the Blue Angels at Jacksonville Naval Air Station this Saturday and Sunday. The Blue Angels were founded at Jax NAS after World War II and continue to perform here every other year in October. Watch them from the runway or by boat, either way it is thrilling. If you live close by, you can hear them/see them flying by on Thursday. My husband saw the Blue Angels flying over as he was driving down Highway 17 near the base today. Fridays they traditionally do a rehearsal show, weather permitting. The Blue Angels originated in Jacksonville. The first show was at Craig Field at Naval Air Station, Jacksonville, FL on June 15, 1946. The name originated from the famous Blue Angels nightclub in New York. One of the early planes sits at the main gate of Jacksonville Naval Air Station to...

For Everyone who missed it the new Up The Creek - Steaks and Seafood restaurant is open at the new Oakleaf Towncenter. Up The Creek opened with a bang in mid August, filling a need that many Argyle Forest and Oakleaf Plantation residents had been craving........more food choices besides Chik-Fil-A and McDonalds(not that those arn't great on the go).  Rumor also has it that they have a nice outdoor section to sit and have a few drinks......something else that the Oakleaf Blogs have been buzzing with a need for. We welcome all comments and feedback about Up The Creek!! Please let us know how it was! The Landry Team - Orange Park Real Estate Specialists

August 29th, 2008  I wanted to thank the Williams family for choosing me to represent them in the sale of their home. The Williams did everything right to help me get their home ready to sell. They removed the personal items, kept the interior of the home immaculate, and made the home very easy to show. With the combination of my marketing strategies and their help to make the house very show able we had a contract in 33 days (even in a “slow market”).  I wish the Crosby family many happy memories in their new home! I have attached the letter that Mrs. Williams had given to me at closing and it is greatly appreciated. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Williams! 8-26-08 Dear Mike: I write this letter to let you know how much my husband and I appreciate your help in the sale of our...
