    Our Story

    Century 21 First Coast is the evolution of a respected Real Estate company based out of Mandarin for the past 42 years. Previously known as Century 21 Atkins Realty, Pamela & Bob Atkins started the company in 1976 to provide the community with Real Estate consultants that put their customers first. Trust, Integrity & Passion are key attributes that are required for the Real Estate Professionals at C21. Century 21 Atkins Realty thrived for decades as a trusted brokerage in Mandarin through the ups & downs of the Jacksonville real estate market. In 2016, Pamela & Bob Atkins passed the reigns to Terrell Newberry so that their legacy could service a new generation.
    Terrell is a broker with vision & a commitment to excellence. An admired leader in the Jacksonville market, Terrell has established himself as an expert adviser in Real Estate. Mr. Newberry was the Northeast Florida Association of Realtors (NEFAR) President in 2016, the current Vice President of Florida Realtors District 1 and serves on the Budget & Finance Committee for NEFAR through 2018. His commitment to excellence attracts the best & brightest Realtors in Northeast Florida. But even Terrell would say that he cannot do it alone and he has built a team of administrators to provide more support to their Realtors than any other brokerage in town. A front desk coordinator, a marketing director, a broker associate and a chief financial officer support Terrell's vision to continue the Century 21 Atkins Realty legacy. Now, the unique boutique has embraced the new while incorporating the values of their heritage and have renamed themselves: Century 21 First Coast!
    Thirty five of the best Realtors in Jacksonville call Century 21 First Coast their home and the brokerage continues to expand as they house the top producing real estate teams of the River City. Recently expanding by 1,000 square feet, their remodeled 3,000 square foot facility is a modern, open office that encourages collaboration & entrepreneurship.

She has been an active board member on the PTA, and most recently Athletic Booster board member for the sport of swimming which all three of her daughters were active participants in. She has extensive knowledge of the Mandarin area and is proud to call this her home (Her oldest daughter now teaches at the very same elementary school she attended). Now that her youngest will soon be graduating high school and going away to college, Teresa feels this is the perfect time to start her career in real estate. Teresa has been married to her husband, Scott, for 31 years. Scott has been an active broker/realtor for over twenty years and his enthusiasm for the real estate profession has been contagious throughout their marriage.
