From the first time we met David to discuss listing our condo, through the search and purchase of our new home, and finally to the successful closing on the sale of the condo, David (along with help from Clair) provided absolutely excellent, highly professional real estate service! While he always gave us his experienced-based professional opinion which we very much sought out and appreciated, he also carefully listened to our needs and preferences along the way, especially in making and accepting offers. Even when he recommended going another way, he expertly and enthusiastically negotiated on our behalf. We also appreciated David's experienced recommendations of service personnel and companies to aid us in both readying our condo for its sale and in completing improvements on our new home. We highly recommend David for any real estate need!!

Jon Pekel and Phillip Miner

Very impressed.  Truly professional, and delivered an excellent result very quickly. 

B. Clayton

I just wanted to thank you and your team for the fantastic job you did on selling our property.  This sale was smooth and painless, and much faster than we anticipated.

D. Artura

It was a pleasure working with Clair and David. They are very attentive and responded quickly when I contacted them for any reason. If one wasn't available the other was. Their marketing program is outstanding and they kept my house visible in the market. They offered their professional opinions and plenty of guidance but always respected that any decisions were ultimately mine to make. I had great peace of mine while my home was for sale because Clair and David were so proactive. They anticipated my needs and had everything prepared and ready to go during all phases of the showing and sale of my home. They are now representing me as a buyer and have been equally attentive. Clair took me out numerous time viewing homes and when I ultimately decided to build, she attended my pre-construction meetings and visits to the design center. Her experience in provided her with valuable advice on selections and features of my new home that I would not have considered had she not been present at my meetings. I would highly recommend this team for both sellers and buyers!

L. Duffey

We never felt pressure or rush to buy. We were relocating to the area and they showed us everything...existing & new construction. They were very quick in returning phone calls & emails. I would use them again.

Thomas & Margaret Muller

David was appointed a special magistrate to sell our family home in a partition suit. He and Clair made the necessary repairs, listed the home at market value and secured a buyer quickly. David responded to my email inquiries within a day and was courteous and professional throughout the process.

Roger Linville

David and Claire were a great team. Their pricing approach worked perfectly. Their advice on what to fix (and what not to fix) was excellent. They knew our market and landed a great cash offer. I could not have asked for more.

Bret Griffin

Best experienced we have ever had with a realtor! Thank you David!

Mr. & Mrs. W. Dodd Jr.

David and Clair are great Real Estate agents but even better people. They helped us buy a home in Avondale (Jacksonville) as we relocated from San Francisco. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for full, first class service. They have continued to help us locate contractors, electricians, and answered other questions after we finished working with them. Thanks for everything guys!

Pete Banis

They were awesome! So patient in helping us find the right house and neighborhood in a brand new city to us. We would recommend them because of their knowledge of area, responsiveness, great customer service.

Mr. & Mrs. M. Harrington

David and Clair are consummate, very effective professionals. Dedicated work ethic, knowledge of the market and professional in every way. David and Clair have represented me in my last three real estate transactions.

Joos Trust

Amazing service! Clair and David did a fantastic job representing us and went above and beyond to help tailor to our needs. We deeply appreciate their service and would gladly recommend them.

Pedro Gonzalez

David helped us purchase our new home in Avondale. Although we are third time home buyers, we were new to Jacksonville and needed direction! We worked with 2 other realtors and had negative experiences before finally finding David through a coworker. David turned our Jacksonville buying experience around. We quickly found the perfect home within our budget and he skillfully negotiated the price as well as repairs before closing. He was very prompt with answering questions via text, calls, and emails. He coordinated every detail with the seller, bank, insurance, and title company. This was by far the smoothest home purchase we have ever experienced and we definitely plan to call David when we are ready to buy/sell again. He is knowledgeable, professional, and all around a great guy! We honestly consider him one of our first friends in Jacksonville and are so lucky we found him!

G. & E. Starkweather

They found a buyer. Did make sure the transaction proceeded smoothly. Very professional, courteous. Always available to answer questions.

Mr. Rama Rao

Almost 3 years ago, my husband and I met David Butler and Clair Corbett, Realtors in the Greater Jacksonville, FL area. My mother and father in-law were in the process of selling their home in Virginia and looking to buy a home in Jacksonville, FL. My in-laws had found a Realtor but weren't happy with the level of service they provided, my husband and I were also in the process of selling our home and found David and Clair. We have never been more grateful for such a great team, David and Clair from day 1 listened to our needs, concerns, etc. and didn't listen to respond, they listened to understand. We sold our home and bought another one and my in-laws also purchased a home through David and Clair's services. We recently sold our home in the Orange Park Country Club, the one I mentioned above that we bought through Watson with David and Clair's help, and couldn't be happier. My husband and I moved 4 months ago to Los Angeles for work and didn't have to sweat the details of selling our home because David and Clair were on it and we are so happy with the level of professional customer service they have given us. Watson should be very happy that David and Clair are part of the Watson team/family because they are AWESOME!

Dan & Sam Stainback

It was a pleasure and a relief to have Clair and David help us with our new home purchase. Their patience and knowledge was a great help. Never felt pressured - just given the facts and insight. Being remote during the process would have been much more stressful without them watching our backs and jumping in to get things done as needed. Thanks for the great experience!

Mr. & Mrs. M. Eseppi

They sold my house in one weeks time for cash. I was very impressed with their professional manner. It is true the house was in a very desirable location however the professional approach by this team was exceptional.

Mr. W.P. Davis Jr.

David worked meticulously with us each step of the way. He offered outstanding counsel and was very honest throughout the process. For reasons stated above they are excellent in customer care and service. Honesty and integrity really show!

Mr. & Mrs. E. Bowler

We have used David in the past and he is by far the best REALTOR around Jax. They get to know the person and know what they are looking for.

Mr. & Mrs. K. Cox

Excellent Service!!!  All good!

Mr. & Mrs. A. Posniak

They were so helpful in many ways. Not just the sale of house. Very nice and helpful.

Mr. & Mrs. M. Mavelle

They were professional and prompt with any questions and services we requested. Did an amazing job.

Mr. & Mrs. S. Gillette

Clair and David provided excellent service throughout the entire experience, and I couldn't be happier with the results!

K. & R. Oro

They both offered honest opinions that let me know they wanted me to find the best place for me and they weren't just looking for the biggest/fastest sale.

Ms. L. Redfern

The following testimonial is an exerpt from an email-letter sent to William A. Watson, Jr., Chairman of the Board:  "On your referral, we met with David Butler, who was marvelous in finding our new home. He was kind, informative about the area and prompt in returning our often frantic calls. In addition, he was our advocate in needed situations of minor conflicts. His co-worker, Clair Corbett was also very helpful. You will be proud to know the entire team from sales thru mortgage followed through with your vision of your company. Talent is hard to find. Team work even more elusive. This was seamless."
 

Dr. S. Yoder

Clair and David were very responsive to what we needed. Also very pleasant to work with! They make a great team.

Mr. & Mrs. T. Strickland

David and Clair...
Thank you doesn't quite seem sufficient to express our gratitude to you both in helping us find our dream home!  You were both there every step of the way & ready to answer any questions us first-time homebuyers had. Clair, a big thanks to you for staying up late & searching for "more than one"!  That extra work found exactly what we wanted.  The professionalism of your entire staff is evident and we will gladly send our friends your way.  Thanks again--

The Reids

Very helpful. Very knowledgeable. Always willing to help in any way.

C. & L. Baker

Very professional, responsive and courteous. I would recommend to a friend. Very pleasant experience.

Mr. W. Ware

Our experience with working with David and Clair was as good as it can get. We used them to purchase our home and then again to sell it when we were transferred for work out of state. We highly recommend them for their professionalism, hard work, friendly/positive attitude, and excellent communication.

Mr. & Mr. T. Becker

In my mind, they are the most accomplished real estate team, with their office support, in Jacksonville. I would recommend them above anyone else in the sale of a home. They gave very helpful information in how to prepare our home for buyer inspections; They expended incredible effort in exposing our home to perspective buyers and their realtors; They negotiated, with our approval, a contract that was fair but beneficial to us; They counseled us on the necessary negotiations when the inspection report came back and buyers asked for certain concessions; They counseled us during the Buyer/Lender approval process and got us safely to the closing table.

W. Joos

David and Clair are very hands on; they communicate extremely well with us and were very intune with our needs; they really care about our well being. We know they would take care of any of our friends needs. With David and Clair both being there [at closing], all went well. They asked some questions and helped explain a few things. You guys are the best, no improvements needed.

E. & R. Reiten

David and Clair are the best realtor team in Jax! The different knowledge and experiences that both David and Clair have create an amazing team. David and Clair are also very friendly and responsive whether you call, email, or text. I enjoyed my house buying experience and they were both there throughout the entire process.

Adam Lanier

They took every call and responded promptly to every inquiry we had.

Mr. & Mrs. T. Pate

Having been a military family for the past 18 years, we have worked with countless realtors during numerous moves. I can say, without hesitation, that David Butler and Clair Corbett from Watson Realty are two of the most helpful, hardworking, and professional realtors I have ever met. Their knowledge of the area and the real estate market and their professional skills are tremendous. They worked so relentlessly to help us find the perfect match for us and understood our needs as well as our time constraints. We ultimately decided to build our home and David and Clair assisted us during inspections we could not attend. The commitment David and Clair demonstrate is refreshing.  Anyone could see they love their job, and that made working with them a true pleasure.

Lisa Baker

"Clair and David are so knowledgeable about the market and available listings. They really listen to what you say and do an amazing job finding the right homes to meet even the toughest criteria. They are always available, follow up quickly and make searching for a home a true pleasure. We would not trust anyone else to help us choose a house!"

Mr. & Mrs. R. Cody

Clair & David are the best agents that we have ever had. They both are true professionals and treat their clients like family. We worked mainly with Clair during the house buying process, so we would talk more about her. She is hard working, sincere, and most of all knowledgeable in very aspect of Real Estate market in the area. She listened to our needs, knew our preference and took good care of every detail for us. When we needed her assistance or advice, she was always there for us. We couldn't be happier with our new home and are so grateful for having worked with Clair & David.

Drs. Wang & Lin

Your unique welcoming gifts were very much appreciated!  Coupled with your outstanding overall service, you have made what is usually a stressful experience an enjoyable one!
Thank you again for a "BRAVO ZULU" experience!!!

Dan & Coleen

David was amazing! My friend at work recommended him and I am so happy she did! Excellent customer service and I absolutely love my new condo! I have already recommended David to a friend adn would definitely do it in the future.
