The McCarthy Family All Play A Part In The Success of St. Johns Realty
Jack and Margarita McCarthy formed St Johns Realty in December of 1999, and along with their children Matt and Teresa run a very successful business that continues to prosper today. We asked them about their path to starting the business and their journey along the way.
When did you settle in PVB and what brought you here?
Jack: It was in the summer of 1994 when Margarita decided it was time for a lifestyle change that would include cooler weather. We were living on a small horse ranch at the time in Sarasota so I decided to redesign the ranch into a small community of27 single family homes. After our plans were approved and infrastructure underway we began taking week long scouting trips to North Florida and South Georgia . I was very familiar with this area having moved to Sarasota in 1977 from Jacksonville where I had a home in Ortega. By the following summer we had purchased a home in the Players Club. We chose Ponte Vedra Beach for its school system and the golfing opportunity it provided Matt, who despite just being a 4th grader had already been playing on the junior golf tour for 2 years.
