I have lived in Jacksonville all of my life. We have an amazing natural environment where you can enjoy the ocean, rivers, lakes, streams, and springs nearby. We have sports teams for fans of every game. Hardly a week goes by without a major concert, festival, or event happening. There are plenty of job opportunities and the city's resources are good for out-of-towners: top-rated universities, an international airport, major shopping centers all over town. I love my city!

Jacksonville, FL is a growing market both in the real-estate market and an area geared towards small business startups and growth. The area has ample professional opportunities in the Financial, Health Care, Education, Hospitality, and technology industries. Amazon, GE, Budweiser, Bank of America, Chase Bank, Mayo Clinic, Citi Bank, CSX, Wounded Warrior Program, Deutsche Bank, Citi Bank, AllState, PGA, Florida Blue and Merrill Lynch all have large corporate offices here amongst many others. Great local craft breweries and restaurant options.

If you love outdoor living, you are treated to great weather and options for excursions in several waterways, beaches, nature preserves, and parks. Closeby excursions include Ponte Vedra, Saint Augustine, Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach, Amelia Island, Savannah, Orlando, Vilano Beach, Space Coast, Gainesville and Tallahassee for College Football, amongst other options. The airport is fast but not always the cheapest or most convenient
Jacksonville is where I call home! It is a place that offers the best of both world. If you're looking for an urban/city type of atmosphere it is easy to find or if you prefer more of the suburban life, it is available as well. There are several activities that take place in the area from Market Wednesday in Riverside, tons of beach festivals, Jaguar games, and outdoor events that people of all ages could enjoy. It is a great place to raise a family and I am proud to call it home.
