Brokerage is Like Being a Quarterback

I’m so excited football season starts this weekend!  With all the talk about football, it started me thinking of how my job is like being a Quarterback on a football team.  Here are a few reasons why:

  • We bring all the parties together on the field and try to get the ball/deal over the goal line.
  • You are only as good as your last play/deal – Everyone forgets very quickly and wants to know where the next deal is.  In football, if you fumble or throw an interception, you better quickly make an amazing pass, or you will be in big trouble.
  • There are a lot of egos on the field and you need to know how to handle each person to bring out their best and get it done.
  • Timing is everything – you have to be quick on your feet.
  • It is like a rollercoaster – You win some and you lose some (hopefully your wins outweigh your losses!)

Let me know if you need a quarterback to help you with your lease or sale and go Dawgs!

JACKSONVILLE’S 2017 LIST OF MOST ENDANGERED BUILDINGS

According to the Jacksonville Historical Society, here’s a list of Jacksonville’s 21 most endangered buildings in 2017.

1. POST-CIVIL WAR COTTAGE

328 Chelsea Street (originally Cedar Street, and then Charles Street)

(Hurley Winkler)

Interior Photographs Here

Brooklyn emerged as a neighborhood for freedman after the end of the civil war.  Today, little remains for this era of 19th century Jacksonville. What remains is in danger of being demolished as the neighborhood continues to rapidly gentrify.

2. LAVILLA SHOTGUN HOUSES

Jefferson and Church Streets (moved from 612, 614 & 616 North Lee Street)

(Ennis Davis, AICP)

The city spent over $100,000.00 to move those houses to this LaVilla location during the mid 1990s. These “shotgun” houses were under construction near the Cleveland Fiber Factory when the Great Fire of May 3, 1901 broke out. They were damaged by the fire, but survived. These three survivors represent a distinctive architectural style and are stored for future restoration, yet they are rapidly deteriorating. Working people lived in these practical one-story homes in which one could shoot a shotgun straight down the long interior hallway and out the front door.

3. DR. HORACE DREW MANSION

245 West Third Street

(Ennis Davis, AICP)

Completed around 1909, it was originally built for Dr. Horace Drew, a member of a pioneer Jacksonville family. Overlooking Springfield’s Klutho Park, it is now owned by contractor Michael Bourre.
