My name is Sherri Bessent; I am a Florida native, and have spent most of my life in Jacksonville – a city I love!

I am a skilled negotiator, and a great problem solver – skills I developed in corporate America, and that I’m now able to make use of in a profession that really makes a difference in people’s lives!

Heidi Lynch

Real Estate isn't just about finding the right home. It is about helping people reach their goals. Whether renting, buying, selling, my job as your Realtor is to make the process easier for you. It is about providing amazing customer service to get you where you need to be.

After many years as a navy spouse, relocating regularly around the country, my husband retired after 20 years of active duty. I have lived in the Jacksonville area since 1997. Having been interested in real estate for many years, I applied that experience and interest into a full time career in 2002. I find my personal relocation experience invaluable. There is nothing like personal experience combined with professional knowledge to help make your move as stress free and smooth as possible!

Larry Atwell

When it comes to Buying, Selling or Renting, Larry Atwell is “Going Beyond Service” to get the Results You Want. A Navy Retiree who knows the rigors of moving and long separations, Larry would be happy to assist you at every step of the buying, selling, or renting process.

After spending over twenty years in the US Navy, I have learned to be a patient listener of the ones around me. One of the main reasons I became a Realtor is my love of people and serving them in various ways. I had plenty of opportunities to do that in the Navy.

I was raised in the farmlands on South Central Arkansas and attended the University of Arkansas one year before joining the Navy. My real life's adventures started with my many travels with the Navy.

I have been to forty-nine of fifty states (can you guess the one I haven't visited?) and all way around the world one half at a time. As a single man, moving was a breeze and something to look forward to. Once I got married in 1985, life took a more serious turn with household goods and packers and I was lost. My wife was seasoned at moving, so she nursed me through the infant moments of traveling with a family. Between the two of us, Rose and I have experience moving from Greece, Columbia SC, San Diego and points thereabouts.

My wife and I have three grown daughters and three grandkids. We are active in our local church and support ministries throughout the world.

Service is the main stay to our lives whether it is real estate or church. How may we serve you as we all take this journey through life?

Tobin Bossola

In 2006 I left a salaried management position to begin my career in the Jacksonville real estate industry. Now, with a decade in the business, I feel like I have a great basis for the next 10-20 years. This market can be trying and is often described as being dynamic and ever-changing, but I'm just getting started. A real estate professional’s success in this industry is forged by their diligence and perseverance during market slumps. Having weathered the downturn in real estate that came right after beginning my career, I have come out on the other side focused, stronger and more experienced. With an emphasis on new construction and a strong foundation in foreclosure sales, I have developed a well-rounded understanding of the real estate business. This knowledge is a welcomed resource for customers looking to buy or sell. I’m eager to assist you in finding your ideal home during what can be a tumultuous time without the right advocate in your corner. By utilizing my past experiences and my access to various marketing resources, it is my goal to make your process as fluid and stress-free as possible.

Doreen Congdon
Fleming Island

I am originally from Long Island and have been married to my husband, David, for 30 years. We met in a taxi in the Bahamas and the rest is history! After marrying we bought our first home in Long Island, where we spent the next 17 years building our family and creating countless beautiful memories. For many years buying our first home was the only real estate transaction I had ever conducted. After seeing the importance of this line of work firsthand and helping with the sale of my aunt and uncle, parents and my own home before I was licensed, I was hooked. Several great experiences with reputable real estate professionals led me to become one. Fourteen years ago, my family and I relocated to sunny Jacksonville, Florida, where I decided to embark on a career in real estate. Having been raised only a few miles from the sea, moving to the Sunshine State naturally seemed like the next chapter. Our love of the beach lifestyle made Jacksonville the ideal location. Thanks in large part to selecting a fantastic local REALTOR, transitioning to the First Coast and finding our second home seemed like a cakewalk. The real estate market is ever-changing and it’s my primary focus to stay ahead of the curve. I provide the finest service that is both trustworthy and professional. I pride myself on taking the time to see the transactions through the eyes of a buyer -- whether listing or selling a home. This ability has allowed me to complete many successful transactions, and continues to help me forge countless happy clients.

Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest financial events of your life and, at times, one that can be confusing and intimidating. It is crucial to have an advocate on your side who will work for you and with you, educating you every step of the way to the closing table and beyond. I am just that person. As a classroom teacher for twelve years, I know the importance of possessing knowledge and gaining understanding, especially in areas that can be unfamiliar. I will go above and beyond to ensure that you are well-informed, comfortable, and truly enjoying the process of selling your current home or finding a new one. While a teacher, I was an advocate of technology in the classroom and harnessed the power of technology to take my teaching to higher levels. I believe the very same concepts apply to real estate. With over 90% of home buyers beginning their search online, I understand the need to have a command of technology and social media and have rooted my marketing in those areas. Whether you are looking to buy or sell, I have the skills, knowledge, and ability to help you navigate your way through any real estate transaction and truly enjoy the journey.

As a North Florida native, I have watched Jacksonville transform into the vibrant city it is today.

The foundation of my business continues to be based on honesty, trust, integrity, and hard work. My extensive knowledge of the area, diverse experiences, and expertise in Real Estate, combined with the desire to put people first and work tirelessly to find just the right fit for each and every customer, has continually made me one of the top producing agents in Clay County. More personally, my husband and I spent 20 years living on the beautiful waterways of Doctors Lake and the St. Johns River and raised our three children here in Clay County. Enjoying life on the water gave me a great appreciation for the beauty and serenity of our area. When not working, I enjoy bird watching, traveling and spending time with my family, especially my five wonderful grandchildren.

Each of these roles required extreme attention to detail and excellent communication skills which have served her well in her real estate career. Upon leaving the financial industry, Deanna became an Elementary Education teacher at one of the local Clay County schools. Being a teacher required not only exceptional communication skills but also the ability to help her students learn and acquire subject area knowledge. Having the ability to convey information and knowledge to others has proven to be very beneficial as Deanna uses these skills to help her buyers and sellers understand the process as she is leading them through their real estate transaction.

I have been a resident of Northeast Florida since 2006. Before getting involved in real estate, I was a small business owner specializing in promotional products with both local and national clients. Recently, I felt the desire for a fresh start. Architecture has always interested me, so I decided to combine that with my love for sales and establish a career in real estate. Family is the most important factor in my life. My wife and three children are my reason for doing better and being better. As a family, we enjoy lots of outdoor activities, and can often be found biking or at the beach. I am a firm believer in helping others and trying to make a positive impact on the people I meet.
