Phyllis Staines is a full-time Realtor and licensed real estate Broker serving the Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra, and Beaches areas since 1998.
Phyllis is known locally as a trusted real estate advisor and is the co-author of "Get the Best Deal When Selling Your Home" Northeast Florida edition. She has been answering reader's questions since 2005 in her weekly "Ask Phyllis" blog in Saturday's Florida Times Union newspaper. Phyllis believes in coming from contribution and has one of the longest running real estate blogs in northeast Florida.
She is also one of a few Realtors who offer Single Agency, meaning Phyllis has a fiduciary responsibility to you. You wouldn't use your spouses' attorney in a divorce, so why would you use a Realtor who doesn't offer single agency? The majority of Realtors in Jacksonville act as Transaction Brokers meaning they do not represent either party. So when interviewing your next Realtor ask them to explain agency and who they represent, you may be surprised.

She is a graduate of the Real Estate Institute (GRI) and was one of the first REALTORS in the country to earn the e-PRO Internet Professional designation (e-PRO). She has also earned the prestigious Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES), 203K Specialist, and Short Sale Professional (SSP) designations. Phyllis was named Realtor of the Year for 2004 by the Northeast Florida Association of Realtors, achieving one of the highest honors awarded by her peers.
