Two parties in a conversation must share a common interest with a shared vocabulary – or there will be no communication – no meaning.

We always enjoy getting to know our World Golf Village neighbors, and with so many incoming residents, we get new folks to meet all the time! And it was a special pleasure to meet Erica and Clayton Thompson.

The family of six (with another on the way) recently moved to the Murabella neighborhood. Erica recently found time to fit us into her (very) busy schedule and introduce us to her family.

Where did you move from?  We moved here all the way from Jacksonville.

Where are you and Clayton from originally?  Both of our families relocated to the Jacksonville area when we were younger, mine from Kentucky and Clayton’s from Virginia.

World Golf Village offers a welcoming environment where residents can put up their feet and relax. Nevertheless, it is a magnet for adventurous people to love to travel and explore. A great example of this type of resident is Michael and Yvonne Tyson. The Tysons recently purchased a home in Turnberry, one of World Golf Village’s most sought after communities for buyers.

Between settling into her new home and chipping away at the couple’s vacation bucket list, Yvonne recently took a few minutes to answer some questions for us.

People move to World Golf Village for a variety of reasons – a safe family environment, sense of community, the golf lifestyle. But the Village also provides great career opportunities for many of our residents, including Josh and Stephanie Pate.

Both find their passion and career in the hospitality industry – Josh’s focus being on the hotel side and Stephanie focusing on catering and conventions. The couple recently joined the staff at the Renaissance World Golf Village.

The Pates, who also just bought their condominium in The Legends this winter, are enjoying their time settling into their new jobs and beautiful new home. We recently caught up with Stephanie to learn more about our new residents!

Though Randy and Bernadette Slocum are new residents, the couple actually took an interest in World Golf Village when it was just starting to take root in the late 90s.

While they didn’t buy at that time, the community certainly made a lasting impression on the couple and they recently settled into the King & Bear community where they are enjoying the peace, beauty, and of course, golf. We caught up with Randy to learn more.

How long have you lived in World Golf Village?  We closed on our new home in December 2013. We have settled in on Crown Drive and are truly enjoying everything about this wonderful community. In fact, before we bought our home in Jacksonville 14 years ago we had looked at World Golf Village when it was in its infancy.

You would be hard pressed to find a better example of dedication to community than Shelby Heinemann. A resident of Heritage Landing since 2004, Shelby has become a fixture in the World Golf Village scene. In fact, if you live here or have kids in the area’s schools, you have likely seen her busily helping out at school, showing properties to potential new residents, or smiling and waving at neighbors. For Shelby, it’s these seemingly small gestures that add up in a meaningful way.

Shelby has been a Property Manager with the Davidson Companies since May 2012 and boasts almost seven years of experience in the Property Management field – most of that experience garnered in World Golf Village. A mother of three, she is also an active education advocate within St. Johns County Schools and a Davidson Cares Board member. Davidson Cares is an organization that offers support for local schools, including Mill Creek Elementary, Wards Creek Elementary, Palencia Elementary, and Pacetti Bay Middle School.
