Davidson Realty President Sherry Davidson and I were excited to get a personal tour of Palencia Elementary School (PES) from Principal Don Campbell. Don has been in education for more than 40 years and specializes in opening new schools, such as Wards Creek Elementary in World Golf Village, and now Palencia Elementary, which opened in August of 2012. Palencia Elementary is one of our most leading edge St. Johns County Schools and caters to 738 students. Come along with us for a tour!
Davidson Realty launched their non-profit foundation, Davidson Cares, in November of 2013 to offer support for local schools in the World Golf Village area, including Mill Creek Elementary, Wards Creek Elementary, Palencia Elementary and Pacetti Bay Middle School. Davidson Cares has given a total of $11,300 to the four schools mentioned above in less than six months!
I, along with many of my World Golf Village neighbors, have been waiting for a great sushi and hibachi grilled table restaurant to come to our area for quite some time now. Luckily, our prayers have been answered! Sumo Sushi is a Japanese Steak House that recently opened off of CR 210 (right behind the McDonalds) and is the perfect place for a date night, lunch date, friends get-together or celebrating a birthday!

We are back with President of Legacy Builders of North Florida John Unkefer to explore how the custom home building process differs from buying a production home with a national builder. As John explains in the video, many people are intimidated about the custom home process, but Legacy Builders of North Florida walks you through the entire process step-by-step.
For those of you in the buying market, it is very important to know that building custom does not mean more expensive. It means you have more choices and the opportunity to spend money where you want to in the house and also economize in other areas. Throughout the design and specification process, you decide if you prefer granite in the kitchen, the bathrooms or both. You choose the level of cabinets and decide tile versus wood. John and his team use all that information to help you lay out your perfect home on a budget that works for you!
John Unkefer, President of Legacy Builders of North Florida, established his company in 1997 and has over 28 years of construction experience, specializing in crafting custom homes. Davidson Realty President Sherry Davidson and I sat down with John to learn more about Legacy Builders and their custom building process.
