We specialize in assisting buyers relocating to the area. We can live anywhere we want and chose St Augustine for many reasons. Lack of hurricanes (click here for details) is an added bonus.
Saint Augustine offers a lifestyle that is always peaceful. There's always a breeze and everything says "small quiet town by the sea". Saint Augustine was built before uncontrolled development filled in every marsh and tidal creek to accommodate wall to wall housing. There's water vistas everywhere you look...the city waterfront, the long tidal reach of the Matanzas River and surrounding creeks and marshes. It's a paradise of birds, dolphin, manatee and abundant wildlife.
A major contributing factor to the style of St Augustine is that it is the only Florida beach community with no high-rise tower condominiums. This means far less traffic and a beach that isn't in shadow by mid-afternoon.
Saint Augustine is the nation's oldest continuously occupied city. Founded in 1565 by the Spanish, it pre-dated the British colony at Jamestown by 42 years.
The Spanish legacy is everywhere. The imposing fort Castillo de San Marcos on the bayfront. The narrow streets with Coquina-walled houses and hidden courtyards.
Close your eyes and imagine the Conquistadors as they rush to defend the town and the treasure fleet moored in the bay. The first cannon volley from the fort is answered by a broadside from a British man o'war.
