About Jacksonville

Located on the eastern coast of Florida, Jacksonville lines both banks of the St. Johns River – the longest river in Florida and also one of only two rivers in North America that flows north instead of south.

In the past 10 years, the Jacksonville metro area has grown by almost 16%. To date, there are over 1.5 million people living in this area and more continue to come every year. In fact, Jacksonville’s population has been steadily increasing at a rate of over 2% per year, and its workforce has been expanding at twice the national average.

There are many factors that explain this growth. First, Jacksonville is the only Florida city that is home to four Fortune 500 companies. The region also has a world-class health care system, with more than 20 hospitals and a growing bioscience community. Additionally, 13 of Forbes Global 500 have operations in Jacksonville.

With a cost of living below the national average, wonderful climate and business-friendly environment, we believe Jacksonville is one of the best real estate markets in the country.
