Not Your Average Real Estate Company
CenterBeam Real Estate is a group of professionals helping people to achieve their real estate goals.
CenterBeam Real Estate Co is a full service real estate firm, that serves homeowners, buyers, tenants and investors in the greater Jacksonville, Florida area. But it is not your average Real Estate Company. Three years before it began, the owners started CenterBeam Construction in 2007. The construction company quickly grew to become one of Jacksonville’s prominent go-to Fl contractors for historic renovations and design. It has since then been nominated for several local building awards, has received national attention and has consistently received 5 star customer reviews for 12 years straight. That background has been the foundation of Centerbeam Real Estate…
Fast Forward To Today and we have blossomed into the well known CenterBeam Real Estate. With being so customer-centric, there is no wonder why the real estate side has grown from being a tenant placement provider, to expanding into property management, to helping with investment portfolios and ultimately into a full service real estate firm offering all services together for our clients.

To do this, we use a team approach. We have separate agents that work in sales and separate agents solely working to place tenants. And all are professionally licensed.
