Recently I learned that Nocatee means “peaceful river”, which I love, especially because its residents often rave about the Lazy River located in the fabulous Splash Park there, which I imagine must also be very peaceful. This is just a little piece of trivia I heard from one of the fabulous members of the Nocatee Welcome Center, so I thought I’d share it with you here.

Also, I am now a Nocatee Certified Agent, or NCA, and thought I’d share with you just a little about why you might want to choose me over a non-NCA, if it’s your intention to buy (or sell) in Nocatee. Don’t get me wrong – you don’t need an NCA to buy in Nocatee, and your Realtor may be a gem who is also your cousin’s brother-in-law’s sister, but in Nocatee I think it’s just smart to go with a Realtor who is not only a successful and reliable agent, but who is also an NCA. ..Just sayin’.

Anyway – NCAs are required to attend at least 3 or 4 meetings a year which are hosted by the developer, and we’re also invited to several other events and meetings designed to keep us as up-to-date as possible on what’s happening in the 3rd Best-Selling Community in America. The best thing is we’re constantly given great information and resources and tools having to do with everything Realtors and their clients would ever want or need to know about this amazing place and future plans for it. And we get the scoop on everthing as it’s evolving.

I must admit that there is no shortage of information about Nocatee on the internet, so you should definitely check out and other sites first, but your NCA can then help you distill all of that information down into the more manageable pieces that are most applicable to you and your needs and interests. Let us – well, me – be your Nocatee resource!

One last thing – if you think Nocatee is only for young families with children, you would be wrong. Yes, there’s an incredible Splash Park that was designed using input from Disney, and yes, a four-story interactive Water Park is underway, and there are countless other kid-friendly amenities, but there are also plenty of communities there with amenities designed for all ages and fun communities for age 55+ that are nothing short of exceptional – so please consider calling me to discuss what YOU want in your Nocatee community – or in any other Jacksonville area community.
