carol carnicelliIf you don’t know Carol, you should.  Especially if you live in The Neighborhoods of World Golf Village, Murabella or the surrounding area.  Because if there’s something happening in our neck of the woods, Carol knows about it and she shares it with her neighbors.  Carol Carnicelli is the Editor of a weekly e-newsletter called the WGV & St. Augustine Fun News and the website www.neighborhoodconciergewgv.com.

You say you fell in love with World Gold Village at first site?
I’ve been a huge fan of World Golf Village and St. Augustine since moving here in 2002.  My husband Michael and I came for a visit to see where my sister and her husband were moving.  When we made a right turn into World Golf Village, that was it – I immediately loved this beautiful, unique community.  We make our home in St. Andrews Place.

How did you become the “Town Crier” for World Golf Village?
There was so much going on in this relatively new development that I felt we needed to get a communication out about activities in WGV and the surrounding areas.  Along with some other neighbors, we started the WGV Community Journal, a monthly publication by the St. Augustine Record.  Next for me, was a weekly email to neighbors.  Now I have a new website that incorporates an activities calendar, a virtual yard sale with the FOR SALE tab, a FUNd Raiser tab, GOLF SPECIALS tab, LINKS tab to fun events in St. Augustine, a N2N (Neighbor to Neighbor) tab for those neighbors with personal businesses to help them get the word out, and more.  The site is  www.neighborhoodconciergewgv.com.  It’s been a great way for me to meet neighbors and learn more about our area, and it’s an absolute pleasure to do. 
And the website is not all you do?
That’s right.  It’s not my paid job.  I am the Marketing Coordinator for Baker Distributing, a large HVAC/R distributor based in Jacksonville.  It’s a great company with wonderful people and the best products.
Carol, Davidson Realty is thrilled to have you as a Referral Agent. Why did you decide to add that to your plate?
Being such a big WGV fan, it really was a natural progression for me.  In fact, I referred a new neighbor who is a friend from years ago and now lives here.  You take the same real estate courses and the Florida state exam, but if you can’t commit full time to real estate, you can be a Referral Agent.  You get to know the Davidson Realty agents and work closely with them.  When you have friends wanting to buy or sell their home, but they’re not sure who to work with, you can help them.  For me, it’s just another avenue to meet people, connect with neighbors and brag about World Golf Village!
