Miles of waterfront along the St. Johns River, quiet neighborhoods framed by magnificent Live Oak trees, beautiful parks and rich history. For these reasons and more, Mandarin has become one of the fastest-growing communities in Northeast Florida.

Located south of San Marco in the southernmost portion of Jacksonville, Mandarin boasts some of the best views of the St. Johns River. 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 $90,000s to more than $4 million,” said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty Founder, President and CEO Linda Sherrer. “We continue to see increasing interest from buyers who are drawn to Mandarin’s wide array of home choices, family oriented quality of life and historic appeal.”

The community’s role in Northeast Florida history runs deep. Named for the Mandarin orange, the area was once an important river port for shipping oranges and other citrus fruit northward. Former resident Harriet Beecher Stowe, best known as author of Uncle’s Tom Cabin, referred to the area as a tropical paradise. Over the years, Mandarin has flourished, offering homebuyers abundant shopping and dining choices, top-rated public and private schools, copious recreational opportunities and easy access to all parts of the Northeast Florida region including downtown and the beaches.

“Mandarin offers residents an incredible way of life,” said Broker/Executive Vice President Christy Budnick. “There is such a strong sense of community and so many things to do. The area provides a scenic backdrop for walking, running, biking and boating, and hosts one of the region’s most popular arts festivals.

With so much to offer, the demand for homes in Mandarin is strong. Homes are selling at a faster rate than the number of new homes coming to the market.

“This is an excellent time to sell because inventory is low and home prices continue to climb,” said Christine Scalf, broker/manager of the Mandarin/St. Johns office. “We are experiencing listings selling very quickly with multiple offers in many cases with some properties selling above the list price.”
