Pauline Cake Talks World Golf Village

Pauline moved here from San Diego in 1996 and recalls the daily articles anticipating the World Golf Village. On her first trip to Anastasia Beach, she drove past the I-95 exit and said, “That’s what I see in the newspaper every day. That’s where I want to work!” At this point, World Golf Village was in the beginning stages of construction.  She became the third employee hired at the World Golf Village Resort Hotel (now Renaissance) and held various positions from Sales & Catering Manager to Executive Assistant & HR Administrator. She watched World Golf Village grow from the ground up.

In 2002, she called Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson, and joined the Davidson Real Estate sales team. She had 5 years experience selling real estate in San Diego, where she sold new construction, so she knew selling in the master-planned community would be a perfect fit. In 2004, her husband, Woody Cake, joined Pauline to make the dream team of Realtors! Pauline says to this day, she couldn’t and wouldn’t want to do it without him.

When I asked Pauline why she loves to sell in World Golf Village, she lit up and exclaimed, “I love it…I believe in it and I can’t sell what I don’t believe in.” She sells all of northeast Florida, but specializes in the communities within and surrounding World Golf Village.  The Cakes lived in Bearsford in the King and Bear and now reside in Royal Pines. Pauline says they moved to Royal Pines for the larger homesites and 44 acre lake, but the hardest part of leaving Bearsford was their neighbors, who had become their family.

Pauline lives, plays, and works in World Golf Village. Her two sons, Wesley and Adam, attend one of St. Johns County’s award winning schools, Mill Creek Elementary. Woody has assisted Coach Tom in the World Golf Village Soccer League and both boys have enjoyed playing with the same friends for over 5 years. Her family is in Arizona, so her community has become her family. Coach Michele gave the “soccer moms” shirts that say, “It takes a Village” because the Village community of friends support each other like family.

As Pauline recalled memories of the opening encounters with Gene Sarazen and discussions with Sam Snead, it was obvious to me why she is so successful at selling World Golf Village. No one knows it better, no one believes in this community more, and there really isn’t anyone more genuine than Pauline Cake.
