Company History

Fernandina Beach Realty was founded in 1974 by Steve Simmons as a full-service real estate and rental management firm. Our company became a member of the ERA Network of real estate professionals in 1975 and is currently a top 200 company in the network of over 2600 offices worldwide. Our office has been awarded the ERA Commitment to Excellence Award for several years; most recently in 2017. for the past three years. This award honors the overall performance of our agents and staff in meeting and exceeding the performance goals set by ERA in areas including customer service, sales and listing volume and use of ERA products and programs to assist our customers. Our agency was also a semi-finalist in 2017 for the prestigious Gene Francis Memorial Award. Named after ERA Real Estate co-founder Gene Francis, this is the highest honor given to an ERA company and reflects the qualities most respected throughout the global ERA system and the real estate industry – including high customer satisfaction ratings, strong brand engagement and use of ERA resources, and sales and company growth. In 2017, we expanded the square footage of our main office in Fernandina Beach in response to the rapid growth in Nassau County. We currently have over 25 agents in our Fernandina Beach and Callahan offices serving Nassau County. Only 11 Commitment to Excellence Awards were given worldwide in 2004 and we are very proud of our accomplishment. In 2005, we opened a new off-island sales office in response to the rapid growth being experienced in Nassau Count. Our temporary Mainland Office is across the street from the Lowe.s Superstore on AIA, just two blocks from the site of our permanent office which will be under construction in August 2005.
