The growth and expansion of Watson Realty Corp is one of Florida’s great success stories. Bill Watson, the company’s Chairman of the Board and founder, graduated from Stetson University, majoring in real estate and insurance. He began with a small office in Jacksonville, Florida in 1965 and dreamed of a people-oriented company sensitive to the needs and concerns of its customers. With this philosophy and the talent to recruit top managers and sales associates, Mr. Watson brought this company to the position of one of the largest and most respected real estate firms in the nation.
Watson Realty’s 1,400 plus sales associates and 450 employees and 48 sales offices serving North and Central Florida, as well as South Georgia, are committed to offering Legendary Quality Service and are united as a team behind a dynamic leader whose vision permeates each office. That vision, always putting the customer first and going a “step beyond” that, which is expected, has made Watson Realty Corp. the area’s #1 service-oriented real estate firm, year after year. Watson Realty Corp. also has established several affiliate offices including Watson Mortgage Corp., Watson Title Services, Inc., Watson Title Services of North Florida, Inc., Watson Commercial Realty, Inc., Watson School of Real Estate, Watson Referral Realty, Inc., Watson Property Management, Watson Maintenance Services and Watson Relocation Services.
A family-owned business since 1965, Mr. Watson remains Chairman of the Board of the company with daughter, Carlotta, as well as son, Bill, actively involved in the organization. The company continues to be recognized by its peers throughout the communities it serves for its integrity, professionalism, and high standards. The corporation’s dedication to continued achievement is ongoing through its pursuit of the latest marketing tools and cutting-edge technology.
