ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (PRWEB) March 23, 2021
Engel & Völkers Florida today announced the record breaking sale of 805 S Griffin Shores Drive. Jenn Bryndal, License Partner of Engel & Völkers St. Augustine, held the listing. At $3,300,000, the sale marks the highest sales price for an intracoastal-front home in St. Augustine ever, and is also the highest sales price the market has seen so far this year.
“As this was going to be a record-breaking sales price, I knew we needed a strong emotional connection to the home to overcome that obstacle,” said Bryndal. “I chose a very bespoke marketing path, presenting the home as a family estate to cherish life’s most pleasurable moments together. By utilizing Engel & Völkers superior global reach and our most beautiful and effective luxury publication, Private Residences, I was able to craft the story of the home and create a vision for the future buyer. To my delight, we found our perfect buyers, a young family of five who will grow into their forever home over time.”
The notable transaction represents the highest sales price for a single-family home on an intracoastal lot in St. Augustine, as well as the highest sales price the market has seen thus far in 2021. According to Zillow, this home is valued 757-percent higher than the typical home in the same zip code. Home values in Butler Beach have gone up nearly 7-percent over the past twelve months and predictions indicate home values will continue to increase an additional 6-percent within the next year.
“When we met Jenn and learned about Engel & Völkers’ global reach, we knew we wanted to list our home with her,” said Steven Champney, former Chief of Global Consumer Audit for CitiBank. “We were very impressed with her laser-focused marketing and relationship-building with interested parties. She handled objections with a calm and fair approach, and we couldn’t be happier. Jenn is fantastic, especially with higher price point homes.”
The 8,180 square-foot home features six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and an acre of pristine land bordering the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, an oasis for both nature lovers and boaters alike. No detail was missed while planning this grand estate. The overall design and polished finishes are accentuated by astounding natural beauty to create a poised and serene environment.
“The luxury real estate market in Florida continues to be highly sought after by buyers from around the globe,” said Peter Giese, Chief Growth Officer at Engel & Völkers Florida. “Jenn has demonstrated once again that Engel & Völkers is the right choice for affluent clientele who want to achieve the maximum purchase price that the market will pay for their home.”
Butler Beach is located eight miles south of St. Augustine's historic district and offers wide stretches of white sand beaches perfect for swimming and sunbathing. Rich with history, Butler Beach is named after Frank B. Butler, a local pioneer in civil rights. In the mid-1900’s, Butler began purchasing oceanfront property on Anastasia Island to counteract the racial injustice, and was eventually able to acquire a tract stretching across the island from the Atlantic Ocean to the Matanzas River. The area became the only stretch of beach between Daytona Beach and American Beach where African-Americans were allowed to enjoy the sand and the sea.
Bryndal left Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty in 2019 to start her own brokerage by partnering with Engel & Völkers. With over 15-years of industry experience at the time, she was a top-producing agent, transacting over 20-million-dollars annually. She also enjoyed success as a top producer at Coldwell Banker Premier Properties. Prior, Bryndal got her start at Prudential American Group in Las Vegas where she trained directly with CEO, Mark Stark. Engel & Völkers St. Augustine had an average listing price of $1,480,625 for the month of February in 2021 and produced more than $16.7 million in 2020.
