David Butler and Clair Corbett, REALTORS®, became a dynamic residential real estate sales team at Watson Realty Corp. in January 2012, and together they consistently rank in the top 5% in sales.  Prior to that, Clair was the Marketing Coordinator for David, learning the business from a highly experienced, successful real estate professional.  David was and is the top agent at Watson’s San Jose/San Marco office for over 17 consecutive years, joining immediately after a distinguished career in the US Navy.  They both get a true sense of satisfaction from helping and welcoming their military and corporate relocation clients who are moving to Florida’s “First Coast”.  They are proud of the comprehensive, customized relocation packet they created and provide as a handy resource to their clients.  David and Clair will consult with you on your objectives and goals, making them their top priority, whether you are downsizing, upsizing, buying a first home or a dream home, and are confident their team approach will provide you with TWICE THE SERVICE!  This 24/7 dedication to their customers has earned them many awards and the positive testimonials of hundreds of home sellers and buyers.

        A Little About David… After 20 years of decorated service in Naval Aviation, in 1995 I became a full time REALTOR®.  I am married to a teacher of children with disabilities and have been a proud resident of the Jacksonville area since 1977.  I am an active participant in local community volunteer organizations with various humanitarian activities and causes including Community Hospice, Mt. Herman School for Exceptional Children and The Veterans History Project of Northeast Florida (part of The Library of Congress).  I am also on the board of the Community Hospice Veterans Partnership.  My dedication to my real estate career has resulted in over $150 Million in sales to date.  As a full-time real estate agent, I have been trained and certified as Relocation Specialist and a Senior Real Estate Specialist, both roles I find particularly rewarding.  I enjoy swimming, traveling with my wife, and spending time with family members.

A Little About Clair… A true Florida native, I was born and raised in South Florida's Pompano Beach/Ft. Lauderdale area, where many of my family members still reside.  As the youngest child of first generation Cuban parents, I am fluent in both Spanish and English.  I graduated from Stetson University in 1987, earning a Bachelor of Business with a concentration in Marketing.  I have 2 beautiful and talented young-adult daughters I am very proud of and I enjoy spending time with them.  When I am not assisting customers finding their dream homes or working for sellers on marketing their homes, I also enjoy my volunteer work at BEAM (Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministry), walking on our beautiful sunny beaches, cooking and home design. Before making a permanent home in Northeast Florida in 2005, I had the privilege of living and building lasting relationships in the Orlando, Houston and Atlanta areas.  I have also had the pleasure of living in St. John's Julington Creek Plantation, a master planned community located in northwest St. Johns County.  My 11 corporate/family relocations have given me a personal perspective on the impact moving can be and allow me to anticipate how I can best help my clients in their time of need.  I currently reside in Ponte Vedra, FL, in one of the largest and newest planned communities in northeast Florida.

     TWICE THE SERVICE WITH DAVID BUTLER AND CLAIR CORBETT!






Jacksonville FL Real Estate

Jacksonville was founded in 1791 as Cowford because of its location on a narrow section of the St. Johns River where cattle once crossed. In 1822 it was renamed in honor of President Andrew Jackson. Jacksonville became the largest city in the continental United States in 1968 after the boundaries of the city where expanded to include almost the whole of Duval County and the city and county governments were consolidated.  With such a large land area, Jacksonville has an area to almost any lifestyle.


Amelia Island, one of the top resort areas in the country, is located in Nassau County, Jacksonville's neighbor to the north. Amelia Island is the name of the entire landmass, and at the same time, the name of a community on the island. Another well-known community on Amelia Island is Fernandina Beach, a quaint historic fishing village. Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach provide two more distinct lifestyles and community personalities on the First Coast. 


Arlington is surrounded by water, with the St. Johns River curving around it on the west and north, and the Intracoastal Waterway bordering the area to the east. The community enjoys easy access to downtown, the beaches, and now, points north, with the completion of the Dames Point Bridge, one of the city's most beautiful landmarks. Much of Arlington was developed in the 1950s and 60s, as families looked for new suburban communities with easy access to the city. As Jacksonville grew, so did Arlington, until the region became one of the most popular suburbs. Today, new construction is available along with resales of those older homes, in a wide range of prices and styles. And with water on so many sides, it's not surprising that Arlington has quite a bit of waterfront property as well. 


Avondale, Riverside & Ortega enjoy the historic architecture and waterfront views of Avondale, but with a more urban flavor. The site of Jacksonville's bohemian mecca, Five Points, Riverside has a distinctive "artsy" feel. Five Points features art galleries, coffee houses and unique shops which cater to a young, hip crowd. For the more conservative, Jacksonville's premier art museum, The Cummer Gallery of Art, is located in Riverside, with its beautiful sculpture garden overlooking the St. Johns River. 


Atlantic Beach is one of the communities lining the Atlantic Ocean, part of what locals often lump together under the title: "the beaches". But this moniker actually can refer to any of the three beachfront communities in Duval County: Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach, and Jacksonville Beach; or Ponte Vedra Beach, located just south in St. Johns County. All three of the Duval County communities are separate municipalities with their own elected officials; however, they are all also part of the incorporated Duval County. Each community has its own personality and style, but they all center around what their residents treasure most - the Atlantic Ocean. 


Jacksonville Beach, another part of "the beaches" is home to the Seawalk Pavilion where festivals, live music, movies and more are held. 


Neptune Beach is located between Atlantic Beach to the north and Jacksonville Beach to the south. Town Center, where Atlantic and Neptune Beaches meet, is home to lively restaurants and shopping.


Ponte Vedra Beach is a beach community in St. Johns County, just south of Jacksonville Beach. In recent years, Ponte Vedra Beach has become one of the most prestigious addresses on the East Coast. Ponte Vedra Beach has also become almost synonymous with golf, as the home of the PGA TOUR national headquarters and the site of the annual The PlayersChampionship tournament held each year at the TPC at Sawgrass. 


Beauclerc, San Jose & San Marco are older, established communities that run along San Jose Boulevard, parallel to the St. Johns River. South of Downtown, on the Southbank of the river, San Marco was founded in the 1920s and was named after San Marco square in Venice.  Click Here.  South of San Marco and north of Sunbeam Road are Beauclerc (pronounced Bo-claire) and San Jose. The drive through these neighborhoods is one of the city's most scenic, with large mature trees and some of Jacksonville's most notable landmarks along the way.


Intracoastal West is a relatively new area of Jacksonville that extends east from the Southside to the Intracoastal Waterway. The construction of J. Turner Butler Boulevard, which extends from Phillips Highway to the beaches, opened up construction in this area, and it hasn't slowed since. Some used to refer to the area as East Arlington, but today residents prefer to call their community Intracoastal West, reflecting the area's proximity to the water and the beaches.. 


Mandarin is, for many families, the place to be in Jacksonville. A convenient location, quality housing selection and strong community spirit typify this Duval County community. Mandarin is located at the southern end of the county, bordered by water on its southern and western sides (Julington Creek and the St. Johns River), with Phillips Highway to the east and Sunbeam Road to the north. San Jose Boulevard is its major thoroughfare, featuring a wide variety of restaurants and retail centers. 


North Jacksonville is considered by many to be Jacksonville's new frontier, and it's not hard to see why. With many other areas of town reaching their development peaks, North Jacksonville is poised for takeoff. Easy access to other parts of the city and points north, waterfront views and plenty of undeveloped land are just a few of the reasons that developers and home buyers are beginning to take note of North Jacksonville. 


Orange Park, south of the Duval County line on the Westside, is a popular suburban community. While many of Orange Park's residents work in Jacksonville's Duval County, Orange Park is situated in Clay County, and maintains a separate school system and township government. 


Middleburg is said to be one of the oldest settlements in the state of Florida. The un-incorporated community of Middleburg lies in the vicinity of Black Creek, a tributary of the St. Johns River in Clay County. During the early 1800's this community served as a port of entry for the Florida interior. Settlers developed cotton and tobacco in addition to harvesting timber. Middleburg served as a junction point between Jacksonville and St. Augustine which in turn caused the town to thrive. 


Southside is used to describe a huge, widespread area, stretching from Mandarin on the west and Arlington to the north, down to the Duval County line. It's also something of a misnomer, since it really isn't the south side of anything. Nonetheless, Southside is well established as one of Jacksonville's most popular areas. 


Switzerland and Fruit Cove are lovely communities on the other side of the Julington Creek, just south of the Duval County line. Until recently, this area south of Julington Creek from Jacksonville's Mandarin neighborhood was a sleepy, rural region. But Switzerland and Fruit Cove have become hot areas for new housing developments, most lining State Road 13, the continuation of San Jose Boulevard when it crosses the Julington Creek Bridge. 


"The Westside is the best side," proud residents claim. And they have a lot to be proud of. Friendly family-oriented neighborhoods, affordable housing, and a convenient location are just a few of the benefits of this Jacksonville community. 


There are many wonderful homes in this area, but you need a local market expert to help you. Watson Realty Corp is a locally owned company with over 40 years of experience selling homes in the area.
