Laura Radford Novotny, Broker-Associate, has been a Realtor at Watson Realty Corp. on St. Augustine's Anastasia Island since 2005. She assists buyers and sellers primarily of residential properties in St. Augustine and throughout St. Johns County, Florida. She has earned the Resort and Second Home Property Specialist designation (RSPS) through the National Association of Realtors and completed certification training for GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute),  REOS (REO bank-owned Specialist) and CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert). 

Originally licensed as an inactive real estate sales associate in 1989, Laura first put her advertising degree from the University of Florida to work as an Account Supervisor and Strategic Planner for 16 years with relative experiences branding and marketing a wide range of products and services. Real estate related client projects included launching an upscale condominium hi-rise in downtown Orlando; rolling out a mixed-use urban neighborhood in Tampa; rebranding a boutique hotel chain; and creating marketing support tools for a hotel condo conversion in Colorado and luxury hotel and condo developments in Savannah.

As a former nearby Gainesville resident she spent many summers at Crescent Beach and has watched the island evolve since 1979. Today these unique professional skills and personal experiences benefit sellers in effectively marketing and positioning properties for optimal results and facilitating communication with prospective purchasers for a seamless buying experience.

In addition to St. Augustine Beach, regions typically served include Vilano Beach to the north, the downtown historic district, Crescent Beach and southward to Palm Coast’s Hammock area located near Marineland. Laura can also provide referral services to customers looking to buy or sell anywhere in Florida, nationally and internationally through her Transnational certification and Watson Realty's affiliations with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and Luxury Portfolio.

Raised in a family of 3rd generation Florida builders and having first-hand remodeling experiences of her own, Laura is no stranger to construction and renovation processes impacting purchase decisions. A passion for big cities and travel has taken her to a dozen countries, but Anastasia Island is where she prefers a relaxed, island lifestyle with her husband, Brian, a building and HVAC contractor.



St. Augustine is a simply magical place. Its rich history and small town feel make this paradise one of the most appealing places to live in America. From wandering the winding streets of the historic district and dining at one of St. Augustine's many fine restaurants to spending a relaxing day in the sun on Anastasia Island, St. Augustine has something to offer everyone.

For the history buff, there is a wealth of knowledge and tradition in St. Augustine. Even before 1513, when Ponce De Leon discovered the Fountain of Youth and claimed it for Spain, there were large complex societies of Native Americans living in the St. John's River area. Transport yourself to their world by taking an afternoon hike through nearby Favor-Dykes State Park and you will see many large mounds of oyster shells called midden. These are actually the remnants of long gone civilizations. Enter into a time warp when you step into the famous Spanish fort De Castillo De San Marco and see how people lived once upon a time. Walk the cobblestoned shopping district of St. George Street and explore St. Augustine's many exciting museums including the Lightner Museum, the Spanish Quarter Museum, the Old Jail and the Old Florida Museum.

If history is not your cup of tea, then there is plenty of relaxation to go around. Miles and miles of beautiful beaches offer recreation opportunities in abundance. Drive yourself to a spot on the beach on Anastasia Island State Park and picnic the day away in the sun. There are miles of rivers for the recreational boater or jet skier, just be sure to watch out for the gentle giant, the manatee.

For the more active types, St. Augustine offers some of the best fishing on the East Coast. Its large roster of charter boats for both intracoastal and deep sea fishing provides anglers many options for catching the "Big One." Just off I-95 the World Golf Village is a golfer's paradise. This masterpiece contains a 75,000 sq. ft. World Golf Hall of Fame, a 300-seat IMAX Theater, a 31,000 sq. ft. PGA Tour Stop shopping mecca, several hotels, a conference center, restaurants, shops and, of course, championship caliber golf courses. This exciting addition to St. Johns County has something for everyone, from retail to golf to upscale community living. St. Augustine has been honored as one of the 100 Best Small Art Towns in America. With art galleries, fine dining, rich history, education and beach recreation, St. Augustine has it all!
