It’s March and it’s over! Winter? Maybe; my radiation treatments? Definitely!Time to move full steam ahead with new listings and buyers. There are many reasons why long-time residents move out of Deercreek, and why new residents move in. For some, it is the location, for others - the Club or the beautiful community. For still others, the recommendation of family and or friends. Deercreek is home to young and old, and has a lifestyle for all!

I recently had the privilege of showing Deercreek to a couple relocating within the next year. They heard about Deercreek from a friend and wanted to see what it was all about. I was called to provide a tour of the community. The couple remarked that their friend could have lived anywhere in Jacksonville, yet chose Deercreek and they wondered why. I happen to know why – it’s the location, the Club, the community, and it’s the family and friends within Deercreek!
