Real Estate is, if nothing else a people business. For me as a leading real estate professional, my work is not so much about buildings, contracts and inspections; it's about people, their dreams, aspirations and the most important place in their world- their home. I am a people person through and through. Simply put, people fascinate me... spend a few minutes with me and you can sense this unique attribute. I listen intently to you and most importantly, I have a genuine interest in what you have to say. Follow me around for a day and you will witness the powerful and positive effect I have on the people around me, whether it's my family, close friends, or a community acquaintance. Undoubtedly, you will see a caring and committed woman who makes a difference in people's lives. If you ask my past clients what they liked about working with me, some would say it was my business savvy and real estate expertise that impressed them, but most of them would comment on how much I cared about them. I really listen to what my clients want and do what I can to anticipate their needs. I always try to stay one step ahead and keep in constant contact. My clients know I am always working for them to keep them informed and up-to-date, and I have a highly organized way of walking my clients throughout the process of buying or selling their home that makes them feel confident nothing will slip through the cracks. I absolutely love what I do and I can tell you "I'm in The Business of People." What that means to me is that I have the privilege of helping my clients achieve their dreams. What that means to you is that you can count on me to care about what matters most to you because I make your real estate needs my top priority.
What Clients Are Saying

We had to relocate from Michigan to Jacksonville, FL and worked with Doris to find a home. She was very helpful in guiding us after providing her with what our needs were. We took 4 days off and flew to Jacksonville to look at homes that fit our needs. Doris spent 4 days exclusively with us looking at houses and compiled an extensive list of houses to look at during our visit. Needless to say, we found the perfect house that fit our family's needs. Doris showed patience during the mortgage process and help negotiate the sale price down to a price point that made the underwriters happy. I hope that I will not move anytime in the near future but if we do I would work with Doris again. Professional, personable, friendly, knowledgeable and an all-around great agent...even helpful after the sale is done.

Eric & Jenelle

Our family moved from Lake Forest, Illinois to Ponte Vedra, FL in June 2019. Doris did an outstanding job understanding my families goals for our new home. She was patient and did an excellent job ensuring we understood the pros and cons of each property. We ended up purchasing an amazing home and my family is thankful that we had Doris guiding us through the process.

Sean & Blanca Jordan

Doris has an amazing attention to detail from helping you find the perfect home all the way to closing. We were extremely impressed with her diligence during the final walkthrough before closing on our home. We wouldn’t choose anyone else!

Rebecca Nordness

Doris was wonderful to work with and we highly recommend her. She understands the market and was very communicative in explaining it to us when making pricing decisions. She worked closely with us from listing, through several obstacles and right up to closing day.

Tom & Ann

Doris was phenomenal! We didn't know the area at all and she helped us to get familiar with Jacksonville and also find our dream house. The process through closing was extremely smooth because of Doris.

Shantil T.

Doris continually went well above and beyond to help us sell our home. Since we live overseas, Doris had to take on additional responsibilities to make the home ready for listing and then complete post contract repairs. She was always responsive, understanding and communicated regularly with us through the process. Without a doubt, Doris was the reason our home sold as quickly as it did for the price we received!!! You will not find a finer, more professional agent in the Jacksonville area.

Chris & Rachel

She was helpful in finding the right house. We enjoyed her honest input, and knowledge of the closing procedure. I only give JESUS a perfect rating. Doris was fun to work with, and was there when we needed her.

Ken & Barb Kirkpatrick

We were so blessed to have been matched with Doris Arnold . We were moving from Texas so most of our stuff had to been done long distance . I believe we looked at 62 houses and Doris was so patient and wanted to make sure we got the house that was our perfect match . We actually changed our mind a few times and Doris always stood up for us with the other realtors . When we finally found the perfect house we bought it without physically seeing it !! Doris went into the house and face timed with us showing us around the house and the property !!! We bought it and we absolutely love our new home !!!! I can't begin to thank Doris enough she was amazing !!!!!!!

Chuck & Gwen Ezell

Great to work with! Helped us buy and sell our home in St Johns

Derek Gohlinghorst

By far, the absolute best experience. Doris is second to none at her craft! She as always exceeded our expectations. She went above and beyond to accommodate our needs, not only when we bought our first home 8 years ago, but when selling it two months ago and providing valuable experience and insight while building our brand new home. I would without a doubt recommend her to my closest friends and family when buying or selling a home!

Dustin Rethelford

Having previously seen the success that Doris had selling properties in our area and knowing she was helpful by nature, Doris was our first choice when it came time to hire a realtor. She listened to our concerns and worked with us to set a fair price and negotiate expenses so we were comfortable with the results. Having already moved out of the area, Doris and her team made the quick sale of our home a much less stressful process than it might otherwise have been. They handled all the arrangements and we are very happy with the result. Thank you Doris and team!

Fionnuala & Leonel Dominguez

Doris is truly the best realtor there is! She helped us in 2012 when we purchased our first home! When we decided it was time to move Doris was the only person we wanted to work with. Our experience with her has been nothing but excellent. Selling a home and looking for a new home can be stressful, but Doris made the experience easy. She goes above and beyond for her clients. If you want the best experience buying or selling a home Doris should be your first and only call!

Meagan Heineman

A very special thanks to Doris Arnold and her team for the excellent representation and support from start to finish when selling our home. We had a short timeline to sell our home, and were advised by Doris in our first meeting that she could meet our needs - she did! our home went to closing in less than two months after listing. In particular, the photos of the home (inside and out) were very professional, and a cut above virtually all other listing photos. Doris and her staff always answered questions, and responded with answers in short order. We are very thankful to have found Doris Arnold, Watson Realty, and even the easy closing that was conducted by Watson Realty's "Watson Title" organization. If ever back in the Jacksonville area we would have no hesitation calling on Doris specifically, and Watson in general.

Paul & Tere

Doris made every step of the home buying process as painless as possible. She was timely, open, and responsive during all phases. My wife and I had planned a trip out of the country prior to learning that we would be moving, and Doris ensured that she was reachable during any of the odd hours we might have access to the internet.

Payton Thomson

Doris was phenomenal to work with. She sold our house in just one week! She is very responsive and knows the market well. 

Mike Franklin

Doris Arnold made our house hunting process easy and painless. She gave advice where needed and respected our views. My daughter used Doris in November, and I just closed on my house February 15th. Doris is a pleasure to work with and she made the whole process non anxiety provoking.


Doris Arnold is not only an amazing Realtor she is an amazing person as well. We have known Doris for about seven years now and have used her for the handling of three personal residences as well as two investment properties. She knows how to price and market houses. Both of our homes she listed we got full list price offers-- one in only two weeks on the market and then the second time with four contracts within four days on the market. She is a true professional that can walk you through every step of the selling or buying process. We would not use any other Realtor but Doris. She isn't just our Realtor she is a friend to our family now. Our 11 year old daughter wants to be Realtor when she grows up just like Ms. Doris

Greg & Sheri M

Doris is the best! It was her experience and knowledge that led me to finding the perfect home. She help me to stay focus to choose the home that met my desires and not to just settle for a home just because of the price. I felt that she was not only a real estate agent i felt that she was a friend. I would recommend her to anyone!

Deborah Robinson

Doris was excellent to work with. This is the first home we had ever purchased, therefore had much to learn about the process. Doris was always very helpful, answered our questions, gave honest feedback and we are now in a home that fits our family perfectly. We are excited for the memories we will make there. I would highly recommend Doris to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home!

Perez & Jessica Smith

Doris is very professional and keeps her clients' best interest at the forefront at all times. I was obviously very nervous going into the home purchasing process, but having a realtor as awesome as Doris quickly calmed my nerves. I'm now in a home that I absolutely love and is perfect my family and I.
