Testimonials


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

 - D. Arturo and B. Clayton, Out of State Home Seller & Coordinator 


"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 times viewing homes and when I ultimately decided to build, she attended my pre-construction meetings and visits to the design center. Her experience provided me 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!"

 - Laura D., Home Seller and Home Buyer, St. Johns, FL  1/20/2018




"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."

 - T. & M. Muller, Home Buyers Ponte Vedra, FL 11/2017


"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."

- B. & T. Griffin, Home Seller 5/2017


"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!"

 - Mr. P. Babnis, Home buyer 4/2017


"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 prospective 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. 


"David and Clair are the BEST REALTOR TEAM IN THE JACKSONVILLE AREA."

- Mr. William Joos, San Marco/Jacksonville area home seller


"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! Thank you so much."

- Dan and Sam Stainback


"All services were performed in a timely, courteous, professional manner. They both (David and Clair) put the customers' needs first before the commission.  I would recommend them to a friend because of their professionalism, industry knowledge, character and customer service skills and sincere caring for their clients. Clair and David were extremely knowledgeable and professional. They assisted me with appraising my current house for my relocation situation, but I was upside down too much to proceed with that transaction.  The current sale was for my childhood home after my mother's passing from breast cancer. Clair was the first person I wanted to be my representative and I have three other friends who are realtors.  I knew Clair would not only do everything necessary to get the home sold for me as soon as possible, but that she would handle the situation with the sensitivity that it deserved.  I felt very secure and confident leaving everything in Clair's more than capable hands. Clair also represented me at the closing as I was in mandatory training and unable to attend.  She kept me updated on everything via email, calls and text in a very timely manner.  We even had a last minute situation where my attorney had failed in sending the closing paperwork in a timely manner because they had forgotten about my relocation situation.  Clair "virtually" held my hand to make sure I was able to submit the documents before closing.  I can't tell you how blessed I was to have her help with all of the extenuating factors involved.  It wasn't just about the commission with Clair. It was about acknowledging my very emotional situation, the urgency of the sale, representing me in my absence and doing everything above and beyond!  Watson should be thankful and proud to have Clair representing your company.  I will definitely be recommending Clair to my family and friends in Jacksonville in the future."

  - Ms. D. Angel, Neptune Beach Home Sale / Sandy Springs, GA Resident


Excerpted from an email to William 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 coworker, 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, Homebuyer 2016


 


"David and Clair were the perfect pair to work with to sell our home! We lived out of state so were unable to ever meet them in person but selected them based on their reviews, sales in the area and knowledge. They were responsive, professional, and easy to work with. Their communication was excellent (even when ours wasn't!). You won't be let down by these two! Five Stars for local knowledge, responsiveness & negotiation skills. Highly likely to recommend!"

"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 through each and every step of the lengthy process, even filling in for 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, Home Buyer, Relocating to Jacksonville area


"We worked with Clair Corbett and her partner, Dave. Both were very professional but also very nice. They dropped everything more than once to accommodate my wife and helped us with the sale of our old home even though it was sold by us to an acquaintance. Being self employed, I had problems getting a mortgage. Clair arranged a meeting with the Watson realty mortgage group and made the whole process much easier. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a home in the Jacksonville area."  

-  Dr.'s Chris & Janice Erdman

“Our decision to move to Jacksonville was easy in part because of the hospitality that you and Clair provided to us. David, your history facts were more than we could have learned from a local tour. Clair, your knowledge about the schools really set our minds to ease when it comes to our children and the education they will receive. You really are the perfect pair and we didn't want it to go unnoticed that you made a difference in our views about your city. We are grateful for the time we had with you and we thank you.”

"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 a hard working, sincere, and most of all knowledgeable in every 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."
