Galphin Real Estate Services

Joy and Nip Galphin have worked together nearly their entire lives. They have been married for over forty years. They started in business together in Atlanta, where they opened a group of office suites for start-up businesses. In twenty years, the couple owned three hundred suites, and you’d think that after that many years in business together, Joy and Nip would be ready to retire. But that wasn’t the case for this hard-working family. “We decided to come back to Fernandina Beach to be close to my mother,” says Nip, an Amelia Island native. “We also wanted to live near the beach, a place where we could relax, walk, and enjoy the ocean.” In 2004, the couple established Galphin Real Estate Services, Inc. through the purchase of a local firm which specialized in long-term rentals of residential and commercial properties for twenty years and had become the area’s largest rental property management company. In 2007, Galphin added an Association Management Division to address the specific needs of homeowner and condominium associations, a response to the increasing number of associations being developed with a limited number of companies providing services. “It is our goal to provide our clients with an unparalleled real estate experience, whether you are buying, selling, renting, or entrusting us to manage your property,” says Nip. “We pride ourselves on our commitment to listen to our clients and offer them the specialized service they should expect.” For more information, call (904) 277-6597 or visit them at 1800 South 14th Street, Suite 103.
