Located at 1236 3rd Street South in Jacksonville Beach, The Legends of Real Estate East Coast, an affiliate of The Legends of Real Estate in Jacksonville, has been helping Northeast Florida home buyers and sellers for four years.
Husband and wife team John and Chris Levchuk joined the respected firm two years ago after spending time at other well-known real estate companies.
“Real estate is an encore career for both of us. It’s something we decided to do post retirement six years ago,” John said.
John and Chris previously worked for large companies, including AT&T, during their careers in engineering project management and marketing, respectively. Their prior experiences combined with the resources at The Legends of Real Estate East Coast give them a unique advantage to plan, organize, analyze and effectively help each buyer and seller “move forward” with their lives.
The pair knew they wanted to work for and with a company that puts clients first, and provides ample opportunity to continue to learn to better help customers have a smooth home buying and selling experience.
“We came to The Legends of Real Estate East Coast because of the way they do business,” John said. “We found the company’s culture to be the best fit for us. Everyone is always so open and available, and that’s how we are, so it was a great fit.”
The company hosts bi-weekly meetings to keep the team up-to-date with the latest industry trends to make every transaction as easy as possible for clients.
“We have the opportunity to hear from an expert in a variety of fields pertaining to real estate — such as insurance, inspections and mortgages — about the latest technology, procedures, changes and updates to their field,” John said. “Real estate is about teaming with the right people, and we believe we’ve found many of the best in Jacksonville.”
In addition to The Legends of Real Estate East Coast office in Jacksonville Beach, two new locations are planned. “We are opening offices in Arlington and Ponte Vedra Beach next year. We are already the sixth largest independent real estate company in Jacksonville, and are looking forward to growing,” said Andrew Bell, Broker Manager of the Jacksonville Beach office.
Working out of the Jacksonville Beach office, the Levchuks are known as the “Moving Forward Team” because they specialize in helping clients manage through major life events.
“Births and deaths, marriages and divorces, losing and starting jobs or a change in income can all produce very high levels of stress that affect health and feelings of well-being,” John said. “Changing your home situation can add more stress to the situation. As the Moving Forward Team, we can help share some of that burden.”
Their slogan — “When things change at home, we help you change homes” — is essential to how they do business.
“The key word is “help”, because we don’t view ourselves as salespeople,” John said. “Our emphasis is not on making a sale, it’s on providing people the information they need to make a good decision. We do a very deep data analysis for clients, both buyers and sellers, so they can make the best decision.”
Many customers become personal friends, and they credit that to their commitment to get to know each buyer and seller, and understand their specific situation to learn what they want and need, and how to deliver it.
Bill and Linda Maywood of Ponte Vedra Beach worked with John and Chris more than four years ago to move from Redondo Beach, Ca., to Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
"John and Chris were awesome to work with! They helped us move coast-to-coast … guiding us every step of the way. They were always available or questions, and helped us navigate the contract period of our home purchase. John is extremely organized and tech savvy and Chris was so warm and responded right away when we initially contacted them. It was such a pleasure working with them."
As John and Chris moved into a new phase of life, they found real estate as a way to guide others through the many stages of life.
“We’re in the business of helping people, and that’s a good thing,” John said.
