“You guys obviously have an eye for design.  You make it look easy.”
Scott McGillivray - HGTV Income Property
“Whitney and John made buying a home for the first time for me and my husband fun and easy! They were very helpful in informing us of everything we needed to know and were always available to answer questions. Their availability to show us homes and be there for us was remarkable in the whole process. They are both great to work with and just nice people you can trust. We highly recommend them and their services when doing your new home shopping!”Alicia & Mike O.- Atlantic Beach, Florida
“This was my 3rd home purchased, and Whitney was bar far the best realtor that I have worked with.  Her communication skills are awesome and she is super responsive.  John, her husband, is a GC so they both have a ton of good knowledge about the way homes are built, possible issues, etc.  Whitney also did a really good job of helping us with the negotiations with the seller.  Do yourself a favor and hire her if you are in the market for a new home.  Thanks Whitney and John!”Jeff M.- Jacksonville, Florida
“Was a fan of John & Whitney after seeing them on HGTV, but even more impressed after working with them on my condo (kitchen and bathrooms) remodel. They completely got my design style and had great ideas to maximize my space and budget! Completed the project in a timely manner, and every person who worked on the project was a consummate professional. So great to work with that I almost hated to see the project end! So happy with my little home and can’t recommend 27 South any higher. They’re the best!”Leisha C.- Jacksonville, Florida
“John and Whitney did a great job helping us renovate our house to make it perfect for us, functionally and aesthetically! The unique combination of John’s construction experience and Whitney’s design helped us through out the entire remodeling process, from the initial design to ensuring the quality of the outcome was up to our high expectations. We would have been easily overwhelmed with selecting all the details (from the endless options for paint, tile, hardware, etc.) for our kitchen and bathrooms without their guidance even though we knew the style we wanted going into it. They delivered a beautiful cohesive design across multiple rooms that matched our style using a combination of affordable new items and refinishing some existing ones. We are really happy with the transformation they designed after living in our updated house for the last few months.Thanda M.- Jacksonville, Florida
“I went to Whitney after having some issues with a previous agent and I’m so glad I found her for my first home purchase! Not only did we get the ball rolling right away, she was as quick and persistent as I was to make a quicker closing than the bank expected. Whitney went above and beyond to make sure every detail, small or major was taken care of. Anytime I had any questions or concerns she was available and I’m grateful to her service!”

Stephenie S.- Jacksonville, Florida
“John and Whitney are absolutely the best designers I’ve worked with since opening up my real estate investment firm in 2010. I have used them on countless projects to make my ideas come to life when I am completing remodeling homes as well as building new construction. Their attention to detail and ease to work with is what sets them apart from their competition. They know how to work within an investors tight budget to give you the most bang for you buck.”Sean S.- Jacksonville, Florida
“We had put off changing our floors, light fixtures and paint for years because of all the decisions and hassle involved and the overwhelming process, BUT then we learned about 27 South Home Group and Whitney and John. I am happy to say that our house of 20+ years looks refreshed and current. Thanks to Whitney for all of her help and patience in this undertaking- we love the changes. I cannot say enough about her excellent communication (she always got back to us in a timely manner). All of the workers were punctual, paid attention to detail, and followed up on any questions or concerns that we may have had. 27 South Home Group works with excellent people- we can’t repeat that enough. It’s true what we’ve heard- you will wonder why you didn’t remodel sooner. Our response to that is that we hadn’t heard about 27 South Home Group and Whitney and John Spinks yet!

Mimi B.- Jacksonville, Florida
“Energetic, persistent, smart, professional, always reachable, and a pleasure to work with.  Our tale is long, but in summary, we were moving from out of state, began our house hunt in the Jacksonville area, continued the search to St. Augustine’s, and settled in Amelia Island.  Throughout the process, we looked at fixer-uppers (where Whitney and John’s expertise would be invaluable, a short-sale, beach-front, river-front, gated community and pretty much anything else to include vacant lots under the sunny skies of Florida.  Whitney is THE realtor you want when making an investment in purchasing a home as she is literally “on call” for any question or concern you may have.  When working with Whitney, you will get not only a superb realtor who knows the business, but a designer who can easily see how rooms could be changed.  And, the bonus is that John is also usually available to help when needed if there are any questions regarding construction issues (i.e. – if we buy a fixer-upper, how the heck do we do this?).  This is a group that not only offers quality work and services, they stand behind them and treat every project as if it were their own.  Look no further and you will be pleased!”

Mary H.- Amelia Island, Florida
“John and Whitney, I was just showing a neighbor my bathrooms yesterday and again I said to her, I could never have done this remodel without them. You were always there to help walk me thru decisions. You didn’t make the decision for me; but allowed me to put my touch on it while guiding me to make the best decision for us and for resale. You were relentless John in making sure the details to the workmanship were without reproach (even if it took several attempts to get it right). I appreciated that it was as important to you to get it perfect as to us. What a pleasure to work with such professionals and would gladly call upon you again if I needed any home improvement. Best of success in your business venture and I know we will continue to hear about 27 South Design growth for some time.”

Donna M.- Jacksonville, Florida
“Whitney is an amazing realtor and designer! I consider her a friend not just our realtor! She made the selling of my parents house so very easy! House sold in only a couple of days after we gave it a facelift with a lot of her great designing advice. I look forward to our house search this year with her. I know she will help us find the perfect home.”Irma T.- Jacksonville, Florida
“We moved into our house a year ago and were lucky to meet Whitney and John while out decor shopping. From the initial consultation to the final home design, they were amazing to work with. Their design choices matched our style perfectly. We loved every minute of the process. Thanks.”Majethia Family- Jacksonville, Florida
“John and Whitney are Great !!! We love all the changes they helped us make to our 25 year old home, including adding hard wood floors, painting, furniture, etc. It was not an easy process to do while living in the house, but they communicated the process and timing with us so we knew what to expect. The subs they use were also wonderful – could not have done all this with out them.”Connie W. - Jacksonville, Florida
“Our formal dining room turned out better than we ever thought the room could look. This is the first room family and friends notice when they walk into our home, so it was important to us that the room is inviting to guest. Whitney & John nailed it! The final touches Whitney made with the accessories tied in all the wall decorations and furniture pieces. Her vision for the room and her suggestions made this a simple process. We are looking forward to work with John & Whitney again!”

Melanie M. - Jacksonville, Florida
“We just hit the 1 month mark of being in our new home. I would just like to thank Whitney Spinks at 27 South Home Group – Realty for all her help in finding our new home. We couldn’t have done it without her. We had a few bad realtor experiences before Whitney so we were a little gun shy of another realtor, but knew after our initial meeting that this time would be different. She found us a beautiful new home that checked all the major boxes we needed in our budget. Just having a realtor I could trust and was willing to answer all my questions since this was my first home purchase was priceless. I couldn’t be more thankful. I recommend Whitney and her team for anyone looking for a home. They won’t let you down.”

Lauren I. – Yulee, Florida
“I can’t thank you both enough for what you have done to my place! I did have an idea of what I wanted it to be and most importantly feel and you both magically helped me make it happen. The curtains are just simply beautiful and they do surely touch the space in a very serene way, which was originally the feel I wanted to accomplish. I wanted to feel a sense of peace and serenity. The illusion that the curtains give to the room simply make the concept happen effortlessly. As silly as it sounds, I look forward every day to waking up and enjoying a cup of coffee while sitting in my living room or from my balcony, which has become my favorite space to admire the curtains from. It is truly incredible how large and open the windows look with that amazing and long curtain rod. Thank you guys for all your efforts! Your passion for interior design and desire to make people like me happy is the perfect combination for anyone who is truly looking for that magical experience. I wanted a touch of your simplistic but yet dreamy style, and you both made it happen!!!!”

Karla A. - Jacksonville, Florida

“John and Whitney Spinks are both incredible when it comes to home buying. The process which can be very nerve-racking was extremely smooth. They helped us find the perfect home and taught us valuable lessons in remodeling and design as well as in VA loan benefits. They always have the clients best interests in mind and I highly recommend them to any home buyer or seller.Wil I. - Jacksonville, Florida
“Good morning. The other day I was vacuuming and went throughout the apartment looking at every piece you helped me pick out and couldn’t get over how beautiful everything is. I also love making my bed and staring at it. Thanks for making our place cozy and homey! ”
Silva- Jacksonville, Florida
“27 South Design is an amazing design company to work with. Whitney and John helped us give our kitchen a major facelift – I could go on and on about their excellent eye for color and creative ideas on how to make the space more functional for our growing family… What I appreciated the most about Whitney and John is their whole-hearted approach and their professionalism. They were there every step of the way, easy to reach, open to changes as well as letting us know what works and what doesn’t. We highly recommend their services!! They were awesome to work with and they made the experience fun and relaxing for us.”Natasha S - Jacksonville, Florida
“I cannot thank John and Whitney enough for the beautiful bedroom makeover! They far exceeded my expectations and were so incredible to work with. My husband comes home from deployment very soon and is going to be so surprised! Not only is he going to love it, especially the little touches that were just for him, but this BEAUTIFUL BEDROOM has also made ME very happy! I give John and Whitney my highest recommendation.”Teresa D. - Jacksonville, Florida
“There is no way I could have done it without you guys!”Flo - Jacksonville, Florida
“It will be hard to explain to you how happy we are with the professional and exceptional design team at 27th South .. We were very nervous to hire someone to assist us with designing our home. (We just didn’t want to hire the wrong company)…. Whitney and John are amazing and in fact they are underpriced for what you get … Hire them if you want your house to look amazing!!! It is great to watch people’s reaction when they walk in our home for the first time they always say how beautiful it is…. They even comment that it looks better than a model home!! John and Whitney will fuse your style with new and current styles and make you proud of your home!!
I am a believer and we will be using them again soon for the outside landscape soon… Thanks John and Whitney”Shawn H. - St. Augustine, FL
“We are very much enjoying our new living room. Everything is beautiful, yet functional and comfortable. You did such a terrific job picking out furnishings to fit our style and budget! You were always available to answer any questions, which made the entire process go smoothly.
Thank you so much for taking our room from drab to fab!!!
Highly recommended!”Alison D. - Evansville, Indiana
