Jacksonville is the largest city by area in the United States so there are many things to do and see and many homes for sale. I (Mike) was born in Baptist Hospital alongside the St Johns River in Jacksonville and I’ve lived here my entire life except for the six years I spent in the US Military. Cindy started life in Tennessee and was raised in St Petersburg. She has lived in Jacksonville for the past 25 plus years. I’ve been (Mike) helping people buy and sell homes in Jacksonville and surrounding areas since 2001 and Cindy since 2005. Together we have helped close to 800 people with their real estate needs and we know the area and property values very well.

Jacksonville Florida offers a wide variety of homes and neighborhoods in price ranges. Riverside, Avondale, Ortega and San Marco are just some of the coolest neighborhoods in Jacksonville, certainly some of the oldest. All are nestled along the St Johns River and begin as you leave downtown Jacksonville. San Marco borders the riverfront on the east side of the St Johns River and residents enjoy a quick walk to San Marco Square.

Riverside and Avondale border the St Johns on the west side of the river as you head south out of downtown Jacksonville and features a variety of homes styles and price ranges as well. You’ll find the quaint 2 bedroom 1 bath bungalows all the way up to million dollar waterfront estates. The Riverside Avondale area has many parks like Boone Park, Willow Branch Park and Memorial Park and great shops and restaurants in Five Points, King Street and The Shoppes Of Avondale. Cindy & I are very partial to the Riverside Avondale area of Jacksonville. I was raised in the area and every time I go through there showing or listing homes for sale, it brings back many fond memories. Every house in Riverside Avondale is unique the entire area just has a “no place like home” feel to it.

Ortega begins just south of Avondale and extends down the river towards Naval Air Station Jacksonville. The Ortega Yacht Club aka The Florida Yacht Club and Timuquana Country Club offer private memberships with tennis, sailing, golf and many other activities.

If a luxury gated community is what you’re looking for, Jacksonville has many to choose from. Jacksonville Golf and Country Club, Glen Kernan, Queens Harbour are just a few of many.
