Golden Bear Realty is a Jack Nicklaus family-owned company founded with the simple goal of providing quality real estate service, supporting real estate professionals, and giving back to the community in which it serves. Headquartered in North Palm Beach, Florida, Golden Bear Realty has three Florida satellite offices in Palm Beach, Delray Beach, and Stuart. In 2013, Golden Bear Realty entered the Charleston, SC region and opened offices in both Mt. Pleasant and Kiawah/Seabrook, South Carolina. Our success is directly attributed to our commitment to employ real estate professionals who represent the qualities of excellence and integrity.
“Throughout my life I have been expected to live to a higher standard. The same core values that my parents taught me are those on which Golden Bear Realty is founded: charity, commitment, hard work, integrity, and excellence. These values transcend every aspect of our company, from the agents and staff to dealings with clients and communities,” says President Michael Nicklaus.
Though the company is continuously growing and entering new markets, it proactively protects its boutique-style nature and family-friendly atmosphere. “I have worked for a few different real estate companies,” says Palm Beach, Florida agent M.J. McElwaney, “but this is the only company that goes above and beyond for its realtors. We are a family here. We look after each other, take care of each other, and encourage each other.”
The culture at Golden Bear Realty is one that cannot be replicated. Our family of agents play golf together, shop together, fish together, eat together, and enjoy life together. “We are not just colleagues,” says Charleston, South Carolina agent Lynn Barber. “We are friends. When someone sells a property, everyone immediately congratulates and celebrates with that agent. It’s the type of atmosphere that breeds success.” With the support of our innovative leaders and top-notch administration and the genuine camaraderie among agents, Golden Bear Realty is the perfect place for top real estate professionals to call home.
