Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty Hosts Free Community Shredding Event and Food Drive

Shred Sensitive Documents and Feed the Community

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty will be hosting a free Shredding Event and Food Drive on Saturday, April 22, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the company’s Mandarin/St. Johns branch office located at 11576 San Jose Blvd. in Jacksonville.

Community members are encouraged to bring their personal documents and sensitive materials, which will be securely shredded during the event. Families may bring up to 10 boxes or bags of materials to be destroyed.

Shredding provides a safe and effective way to completely dispose of personal documents and can help prevent identity theft and fraud. According to the Better Business Bureau, more than half of identity theft victims have traced the theft to something that was stolen from their own possession.

“In our business, we have seen first-hand what can happen when people don’t dispose of personal information properly,” said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty Founder, President and CEO Linda Sherrer. “Identity theft and fraud are real problems that can be avoided if you securely dispose of sensitive and personal documents. We want to protect our clients and the community as a whole from the risk of identity fraud.”

During the event, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is collecting donations of nonperishable food items. The company is requesting participants bring one food item for every box or bag of materials to be shredded. All food donations will go to the local food bank, Feeding Northeast Florida.

“Events like this are in keeping with our company culture,” said Broker/Executive Vice President Christy Budnick. “We are grateful to be able to give back and offer these important services to the communities we serve.”

Mandarin Real Estate

The Mandarin area has become one of the fastest-growing communities in Northeast Florida. Located south of San Marco, Mandarin boasts miles of waterfront along the St. Johns River, quiet neighborhoods framed by magnificent Live Oak trees, beautiful parks and rich history.

The popular area offers something for everyone including riverfront and equestrian estates, gated communities, subdivisions, condominiums, townhomes, and starter homes. Also, Mandarin is one of the few places in Jacksonville where acreage is available. Mandarin’s home prices are just as diverse as the style of available homes, ranging from the $100,000s to the millions.

Homebuyers also enjoy numerous shopping and dining choices, proximity to top-rated public and private schools, many recreational opportunities and easy access to all parts of the Northeast Florida region including downtown and the beaches.

“The Mandarin area offers residents an incredible way of life. There is such a strong sense of community and so many things to do,” said Christine Scalf, broker/manager of the Mandarin/St. Johns office. “With so much to offer, the demand for homes in Mandarin is strong. We continue to see increasing interest from buyers who are drawn to Mandarin’s wide array of homes, family oriented quality of life, historic appeal and school choices.”

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty’s full service branch office, which is located on San Jose Boulevard north of Loretta Road, is home to the area’s most successful real estate agents who work hard to deliver an exceptional client experience and the most positive real estate results.

When young professionals are looking for a place to live, there are so many factors to consider. They tend to search for places with low unemployment rates and a low cost of living, somewhere that is in close proximity to the city center yet still boasts a tight knit community. It’s difficult to decide where to put down roots, which is why we compiled this list of five suburbs in Jacksonville that young professionals love.

5. Callahan

Callahan has that small town vibe that young professionals look for in a suburb. You’re close to the city center, just thirty minutes from downtown, yet you get to live in such a quiet and safe neighborhood, away from the noise and pollution. Callahan offers a low cost of living, and the Callahan Farmer’s Market boasts an array of fresh local produce.
