Also: Winter Wonder Day set for kids
The improvement in the real estate market has encouraged the largest real estate company in Volusia and Flagler counties, Adams, Cameron and Co., Realtors, to reopen an office in Flagler County.
John Adams, president and general manager of the company, has announced that they will open an office after the first of the year. They have leased office space next to the Flagler County Chamber of Commerce on State Road 100 across from Flagler Palm Coast High School. The office is presently being remodeled.
The company had closed their Palm Coast office when the recession slowed the housing market 10 years ago, but their agents continued to serve the Flagler County market, working out of the Ormond Beach office.
Adams said recently that having a local office in the county will make it easier to serve home sellers, buyers and real estate agents. For example, closings can be held at the new office.
“The real estate market is very strong in Flagler and we expect it to remain steady,” he said.
The new office will be near Town Center, which Adams described as a growing area.
Adams, Cameron Co. has more than 300 agents. Visit adamscameron.com or find them on Facebook.
