BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY HOMESERVICES FLORIDA NETWORK REALTY WELCOMES DOUG NUNNERY

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty is pleased to welcome Doug Nunnery to the Mandarin/St. Johns office.

A Floridian since childhood, Doug was raised in Gainesville and has lived in the Jacksonville area for the past thirty-six years. With his wife, Ashlen, Doug has owned and operated The UPS Store franchises for nearly twenty-five years. Earlier this year, a buyer approached Doug and Ashlen, and they decided it was the right time to make a move; selling their UPS Store at Julington Creek in St. Johns. They continue to run their UPS Store located in the Fleming Island area, and with Doug’s wife responsible for day-to-day management Doug was able to pursue a new business venture – one with independence, but still allows him to serve others – and became a Realtor with Florida Network Realty.

When asked why he became a Realtor, Doug states, “As a small business owner for years, I recognize that what I loved most was serving and helping people, particularly those facing some sort of transition in life, such as starting a business, buying or selling a home, and so on. These people need someone who can help answer their questions, and guide decision making, relieving some of the stress and burden of handling it themselves. That is why, after selling my primary business this past Spring, I chose to begin a new career in real estate.”

In choosing a brokerage, Doug knew he wanted to join a team of professionals who were willing to support him in learning “the ropes,” and to assist him in executing a strategy to build a sustainable real estate business. Doug states, “When I found Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty, I knew I found the company I wanted to work for. The training and support systems they have available will allow me to utilize the scores of relationships I have built and sustained through my years in business to help me grow my career and help my clients and friends with all of their real estate needs.”

When not working, Doug enjoys taking his dogs – Bear and Gypsy – on long walks daily, and also enjoys working outside on his yard. Doug also enjoys exercising on a regular basis and has fun changing up his workouts – from swimming and paddle-boarding to weight training, running, and biking, but he especially loves to surf! He began playing guitar in his late forties, and Doug loves making music, especially with others and played in the church for several years. Currently, Doug serves on the Board of St. Johns Cares and also has served in church leadership for many years in response to God’s call.

“We want you to join our excitement in welcoming Doug to the Mandarin office of Florida Network Realty. Although he is a new Realtor, Doug has the business experience needed to succeed in real estate, and the passion and drive to make it possible! Connecting to the community is one of the things Doug does best, and I know he’ll succeed in his career in real estate with us,” shares Christine Scalf, Broker/Manager of the Mandarin/St. Johns office.

For more information, Doug Nunnery can be reached by phone at 904.233.8731 or at Doug.Nunnery@FloridaNetworkRealty.com and website: DougNunneryRealtor.com. The Mandarin/St. Johns office is located at 11576 San Jose Boulevard, Jacksonville, FL 32223.

Throughout his career, Gabriel has handled any number of crises by prompting deliberate action to resolve the issues at hand in a calm and respectful manner. Having someone on your side that is proactive and organized with high expectations of both himself and his peers can oftentimes be the deciding factor for the success of a given transaction or situation. Purchasing a home is one of the biggest decisions in life. Having someone you can trust by your side is a crucial first step to making your dream of home ownership come true.
