About Jim King Realty

Jim King Realty first opened in 1958 in Holiday, FL. In 1972 our founder, Jim King and his wife Mildred moved back to his birth place Chiefland, FL and opened their first office here in the Tri-County area. In 1974 their son Doug and his family moved to Bell, FL and joined his parents to also work in real estate. Their son Don obtained his license and joined the family business in 1979. Through the years their grand kids have also worked in their offices and today, Doug is retired but his daughter Melanie and brother Don are the Brokers at Jim King Realty and they work alongside Doug’s younger daughter Amy. Amy manages our main office and handles all of our book work. Eric Handley has been a great asset to our team. 


Over the years, Jim and Doug developed multiple subdivisions across the Tri-County area and sold the lots with little money down, allowing owners to make monthly payments because they believed that it was important for folks to able to fulfill their dream of owning their own property. They were instrumental in first starting the Chiefland Chamber of Commerce and the Tri-County’s first Board of Realtors and Multiple Listing Service. We have always felt that giving of our time and resources is one of the most important things that a business can do for their community and we have faithfully done that since 1972.


The philosophy of this company has always been to put our customers first and to be dedicated to the quality of the work we produce. We are the oldest and most experienced company in this area and plan to continue to serve our customers with honesty and integrity for many more years.
