Rebecca Schaffer

Rebecca Schaffer stands firmly among Davidson Realty’s most dedicated agents. In addition to her expert negotiating skills and comprehensive knowledge of the local market, Rebecca remains focused on creating the best possible experience for her customers. 

She loves building relationships and helping people navigate the biggest financial transaction of their lives, and her enthusiasm shines through to every customer. Rebecca is also known for her tenacious approach to problem solving throughout the process of buying and selling. Give her an obstacle and she’ll overcome it with a smile!

A Maryland native, Rebecca earned a business degree from the University of Baltimore and worked in finance for Kraft Foods. She later served as supply chain director for Office Depot. 

After taking an early retirement and relocating to St. Augustine in 2015, Rebecca and her husband Tony began restoring and selling homes for fun. Rebecca quickly realized real estate was a great fit and she earned her license, joining Davidson Realty in 2016.

The next year, Davidson named Rebecca Rookie of the Year.

She remains passionate about the process of buying, renovating and selling homes, and as a frequent buyer and seller herself, she understands the complex elements of both sides.

Rebecca and Tony have three grown children and three grandchildren, as well as dogs Bella and Bailey. Whether volunteering at her grandson’s school or cheering on her youngest son as he plays lacrosse for the University of Florida, she loves nothing more than spending time with family. Rebecca and Tony also enjoy boating and exercising. The Schaffer family lives in Palencia.

Rebecca supports the Jamie Chapin Foundation and its annual golf tournament that raises funds for the UF Brain Tumor Immunotherapy Program.

I have just recently moved to St. Augustine and was so fortunate to find Rebecca Schaffer with “Davidson Realty.” Since I was on a very tight schedule, she immediately rescued me and worked with me locally and long distance taking care of items I could not be here for. She was so patient and took the time to find me the perfect home. I could not have found a more professional, polite and kind person. So happy and pleased with all the work she out in for me and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Northeast Florida.

My husband, Buddy and I, are writing to tell you how we received superior service from Rebecca Schaffer. She recently sold our condo in Palm Coast and is the second time we welcomed having her as our real estate professional. Amidst the black cloud of COVID-19, her expertise, tenacity and perseverance helped us sell our condo. We could not have asked for a more professional and responsive realtor than Rebecca. We had many ups and downs with the sale, but Rebecca handled everything like a pro. Please thank Rebecca so much for all her hard work and dedication. We will highly recommend you to any of our colleagues/friends in the future.

I recently bought a house in St. Johns County and Rebecca was my realtor. She was extremely helpful and reliable throughout my buying experience. Being an out of town buyer, I had a lot of questions and concerns. Rebecca was always available to answer my questions and was very knowledgeable about the home buying process. She truly made my home buying experience seamless! I would highly recommend Rebecca for your home buying/selling needs!

Your agent, Rebecca Schaefer, was a delight to work with, and responded to all our requests promptly. She was knowledgeable, and recommended things to do to make our move less stressful. Rebecca went beyond the call of duty and furnished us with moving supplies, and helped us get buyers for our furniture, etc.. If all your agents present themselves as Rebecca did (always pleasant, smiling and upbeat, dressed appropriately) you have a top notch company. There is nothing I can think of to help you improve your services, as all was perfect. We were even unexpectedly blessed with a selling price that far exceeded our expectations. Life is good!

My husband and I were looking for a home while out of state. Rebecca helped us every step of the way! She was patient with us which we appreciated so much. Because we were out of state, we couldn't be there while our home was being built but Rebecca made us feel as if we were! She went above and beyond to inform us about the progress of the build. She was a blessing to us. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone needing an exceptional realtor.
