I’m Michele, and I’m proud to call Jacksonville home. My entire life has been spent here and… WOW! The changes I have seen.
Caution: The following may make your head spin:
I remember when…
Blanding Blvd in Orange Park was a two-lane road
Argyle Forest was a cow pasture and the marketing featured two huge grain silos
JTB was a 75-cent toll road and you were in real trouble if your car broke down traveling to or from the beach.
Speaking of toll roads, all the in-town bridges, except for the Buckman, were toll roads
There was an area of Jacksonville Beach referred to as The Blighted Area where one could watch hard-core punk bands
The Avenues Mall was way over on the other side of town
The only residences that were downtown were for retired seniors
And... nobody would ever have dreamed of beautiful, (glamorous!) condo towers on the St Johns River
Drive-In theaters were scattered across town
Clay County had fewer than 10,000 phone numbers thus one only need dial (on a rotary phone, no less) the last four digits to reach any phone number in the county.
The changes to my beloved hometown have been amazing to behold, but some things never change: Northeast Florida remains the gem it has always been. We’re far enough north to experience seasonal weather changes, but far enough south that we can enjoy the outdoors year round. Our area offers astounding diversity of choice for those seeking to call Jacksonville home, including single-family houses, condos, townhouses, duplexes, and more. From beaches, to farmland, to suburbs, to the urban core, Northeast Florida offers something for everyone.
I’m Michele, and I’m a licensed Realtor selling homes in the Jacksonville, Florida areas of Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach, Jacksonville Beach, Ponte Vedra, Ponte Vedra Beach, St Johns County, and Clay County.
Let me tell you about why I love my hometown, and why you should be proud to call it home, too.
