PEOPLE BEFORE PROPERTY
MissionStatement We are committed to going to work for our clients. We believe the only way to do that is to focus on doing what's right - putting the client first.
Who WeÂ Are Keith and Howard started Round Table Realty in 2010 after a career in new construction sales. While interviewing with several brokerages in town, they both came away feeling like the industry had lost its heart. Getting the sale seemed more important than serving clients. So they took a leap of faith and started their own brokerage with one mission in mind - putting People Before Property. They call it heart-first realty.
And that just seems like the way it should be, doesn't it?
Pam Lockwood “I truly enjoy working in Real Estate. I love the look on a buyers face when they find that perfect home for their family. I love seeing the feeling of gratitude from a seller when you’re sitting at the closing table and they know they can move on to the next phase of their lives because their house just sold. It’s all just so rewarding!”
Pam Lockwood is a former mortgage broker from Jacksonville, Florida. When her sister moved here, she asked if Pam could help with her home search. Pam knew enough to get her sister started and as they walked through the process together, Pam realized she loved Real Estate! She went back to school to get her Real Estate License and has been a full-time agent ever since.
Pam raised her three sons in Jacksonville and if you have ever done the after-school ballet of extracurricular activities, then you know she is very familiar with the Jacksonville/St. Johns areas! Whether you’re moving across town or across the country, it’s nice to have someone who knows the area and can answer all of your questions.
When Pam isn't showing and selling homes, you might find her in a Tae Kwon Do class (she'll be the teacher at the front!). She also loves reading fiction novels, traveling with her husband Bill, and snuggling her dog Larry and her cat Applesauce.

90% of people in the market for a new home use the internet to search for the perfect place!
Round Table Realty Realtors can save you time by improving your internet searches so you aren't pouring over listing details that all begin to look the same.
What the internet can't do is tell you when a home smells musty, when an electrical panel needs to be replaced, whether the finishings were properly installed, and when evidence of a past water leak can be found under the guest bathroom sink. Our Realtors are not home inspectors, but they can give you visual clues as to the health of a home before you put in an offer.
OurBuyers Lending Partnerships In most cases, you should begin to secure financing before you even start home-shopping! Luckily, we've spent years building relationships with lenders who believe the client comes first. We can lead you in the right direction.
Insurance Partnerships Did you know home owners insurance alone doesn't cover flood damage? Did you know certain breeds of dogs aren't covered under a traditional policy, either? We work with the best of the best in the insurance world to ensure your home is covered long after we close.
We Hold Escrow People Before Property means holding your binder (the money you put down when your purchase offer is accepted). Should the sale fall through, the seller could fight to keep that money. Holding your escrow means you have the option to get that money back for free via the state. No lawyers.

Our homes are on the market an average of 68 days. The area average is 53 days. This might seem like a bad thing... but our interest is not in offloading your home at a low price. We put people before property, and that means we won't give your home away just so we can put a "sold" sign in the front yard.
OurSellers Pricing your home Our Realtors will help you price your home according to market analysis. We want your home to sell at the right price for you.
Marketing How do buyers find homes? Online! So where should your home be available when you list it? Online! We are committed to getting your home shown on the most popular home-shopping websites. And depending on your home's individual needs, we have a lot of other tricks up our sleeve to ensure the word is out that your home is on the market.
OurSellers Listing Videos Some homes require special attention. Maybe they're unique, they've been on the market with another agency, or the sellers can't show the home as often as they'd like. We have the capability to create a digital, 2-minute narrated walk-through of your home to give potential buyers a sneak peak without making a physical visit.
OurSellers Professional Photography Every Round Table Realty home listing is professionally photographed and uploaded to the three major online home-browsing websites. A beautiful picture truly can sell a home.
Home Staging The better your home looks, the faster it sells. We have access to incredible home stagers (at affordable prices, too!) who will make your home look elegant, simple, and allow potential buyers to see themselves in it. We can even provide you a digital home staging with computer generated pictures as a less expensive alternative.

"Ben and Tracy's business is competitive and their website is better than most I have seen. I enjoyed their warm personalities and I just felt comfortable when I referred my niece to you as well. Thank you for helping my family!"
"We had the pleasure of using Ben and Tracy Glynn to recently buy a foreclosed property near the beach. Ben and Tracy are a great team and they are committed to personally learning what is most important and making it happen. They have a strong understanding of the real estate market and what it takes to close a winning deal. As an example, we were able to close on a foreclosed property in less than 4 weeks from starting the process which was amazing! We are extremely delighted customers and will definitely use them again. I trust this team and give my highest recommendation."
"I recently worked with Ben on a transaction and he was very easy to work with. While it was clear he was working as a single agent for his buyer and always making sure they were taken care of, he was willing to go above and beyond to make this deal come together. I wish more agents had his professionalism, communication style ,and commitment to their customers. I look forward to working with Ben on other deals!"
"The Glynn Team was very professional from the start. They really listened to what we wanted in our next home, and their experience surrounding the market found EXACTLY what we were looking inside our budget. I will be recommending them to everyone I know. Thank you so much Glynn Team!"
