Methodology

To determine the top real estate agents in Jacksonville, FL, we look at the online profiles, customer reviews, and past sales of hundreds of agents. This analysis provided us with a shortlist of fantastic agents. 

We then dug deeper into these agents' listings, marketing strategies, transaction volume, customer service, and more to determine what each agent excelled. Each of these data points led us to assume what it'd be like to work with these agents and what type of buyers or sellers they'd best serve.
