We are a couple who moved to Jax from SC last April on the hunt for a house. After many failed attempts (including a gorgeous property in Clifton!!!), we finally closed on a home in Alderman Park last September - the prettiest house on the street ... but don't tell our neighbors that! lol
Loving it here, already feels like home. Still getting settled in on account of all the updating our 50's home needs.
Btw, an observation from out of staters - your suspicions about JEA are right - they're not very good, cheap or updated with technology (we have a smart meter, why can't we track our daily usage?) - are they the only provider for this area?
