Jay McGarvey
Founder of
McGarvey Residential Communities

Jay McGarvey is a man with a passion. For over three decades, he has dedicated himself and his company to building communities that will be here for years to come—neighborhoods that both celebrate and preserve Florida’s incomparable natural resources.

Whether in an oceanfront setting, alongside the shimmering expanse of a river or lake, or tucked away among century old oaks and rolling dunes, these communities are rich with classic Old Florida details. There are porches to catch the breezes, and to catch up with neighbors, graceful streets landscaped with native grasses and trees, and lovely spaces to relax and gather.

Since 1980, McGarvey Residential Communities has developed some of the most desirable neighborhoods in North Florida, from Oceanwalk in Atlantic Beach, to Seaside in Ponte Vedra Beach to its newest communities in St. Augustine Beach, Sea Colony, Anastasia Dunes, and SeaGrove, as well as Old San Jose on the River in Jacksonville. The company’s core principles are evident in every McGarvey community: Design the community carefully. Pay close attention to the built environment. Use only the finest materials. Preserve every possible tree. And landscape lavishly.
