Davidson Realty creates Beaches team


During the past year, Davidson Realty has expanded its locations and agent base, and now is expanding its reach with a new Beaches team.

The agents specialize in homes throughout the area, including the Beaches, Intracoastal Waterway area and Jacksonville’s Southside.

The team is based in Davidson’s new Jacksonville Beach location, 1500 Beach Blvd., Suite 215.

“Collectively, the group has extensive knowledge of their market and an exceptional service record,” company President Sherry Davidson said in a news release. “Individually, their specialties cover all the bases; this is truly a dynamic group of agents.”

The team’s website DRIJaxBeach.com includes listings of available properties and an advice blog for buyers and sellers.

Beaches senior living community opens

Anthem Lakes, a senior living apartment community in Atlantic Beach, welcomed its first residents.

The facility has 91 independent and assisted-living residences and 28 memory-care units.

It is a new concept in senior living that incorporates a vision for wellness enhancement in senior housing on a 14-acre site, according to a news release.

“Loneliness, isolation and depression can easily and slowly develop as people age, almost unobserved,” said David Kirkland, principal and adviser to Anthem Lakes. “Residents almost always improve after a transition to senior housing, often as a result of better nutrition, hydration, medicine management and increased social opportunities.”

The facility at 905 Assisi Lane includes a dog park because, Kirkland said in the release, “Pets can be a meaningful part of wellness, so we welcome pets.”

The four levels of care are independent living, independent plus, assisted living and memory care.

Amenities include a bistro and full bar and a dining room led by chef Veronica Majors, formerly of the University Club.
