On this day in 1965, William “Bill” A. Watson, Jr. founded Watson Realty with nothing but a small office in Jacksonville, Florida, and he dreamed of a people-oriented company sensitive to the needs, wants and desires of its customers. Now, after building upon his dream, philosophy, and core values, Watson Realty Corp. has grown into 48 offices with nearly 1,400 sales associates across Florida and South Georgia.
“We are so fortunate to celebrate 55 wonderful years in the real estate profession and to provide so many people the opportunity to achieve the great American dream of home ownership,” said Watson. “Owning real estate builds wealth, provides security and improves quality of life.”
Over the years, Watson has expanded its services to include mortgage, title, insurance, property management, association management, construction, plumbing/HVAC, and a real estate school under its Family of Services to better serve customer’s needs and the community. In 2020, the company garnered more than 12 thousand real estate transactions and three billion dollars in sales. Watson remains committed to legendary quality of service and providing real estate solutions throughout the buying and selling experience.
This coming year, Watson will roll out new digital marketing technology along with an all-new, sleek website with the latest user-friendly interface and tools for buying and selling a home.
