Community Spotlight with Kelly Nowak at Tamaya

Tamaya’s location and resident amenities are only a few reasons this Jacksonville community merits attention —a 10,000-square-foot Residents Club, swimming pool complex, basketball and tennis courts, playground and event lawn, among others.

“Within 20 minutes you can be at the airport, downtown, Mayo Clinic, (St. Johns) Town Center, the beach,” Nowak says. “We have amazing magnet, charter, and private schools in close proximity and the schools we’re zoned for are all A-rated.”

Here’s why Kelly Nowak can help find your new custom Florida home at Tamaya.

Home means more than a house

As then-Jacksonville newcomers, Nowak’s family hoped to score a home and location similar to what they’d enjoyed in Orlando. But, it took longer than expected. Her real estate agent at the time suggested Nowak, a former preschool teacher, consider a real estate career, citing her preparation and energy.

Nowak liked the idea. She began in general real estate and joined ICI Homes three years ago, first working as Tamaya’s community ambassador for nearly a year, then transferring to Nocatee to sell ICI Homes communities. She returned to Tamaya in mid-2020.

“I love connecting with people,” says Nowak, a California native. “I have a passion for helping and getting to know people and where they are from. In our family travels, we have visited unique places that buyers from the region can relate to and can share fun facts about an experience.”

Tamaya’s architecture and plentiful choices often makes the difference for new-home buyers.

“Honestly it’s the location and it’s the look of the homes — a Mediterranean-inspired community with the tile roofs,” Nowak says.Mediterranean style Juliette model home at Tamaya in Jacksonville “It’s not like every other community. We have 40 different floor plans, so we have a variety of size and price.”

“People love the option that they can customize and it’s not going to be a huge cost to them — that they can make it their own,” Nowak says. “Like making a bedroom a little bit bigger for an in-law who might be living with them. Or modifying a room.”
