ABOUT DON PEKNIK

After winning the draft lottery in 1972, Don came to Florida to serve 4 years in the U.S. Navy at NAS Jacksonville, and also deployed to Keflavik, Iceland and Sigonella, Sicily with VP-16 Anti-Submarine Squadron. Following his honorable discharge in 1976 and spending some time with his family in Connecticut, he moved back to Florida and finally to Volusia County in 1980 to attend college at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, where he pursued and completed his B.S. degree in Aeronautical Studies with Engineering.

Anyone who has lived in New Smyrna Beach for any length of time knows it doesn't take long to get sand in your shoes, so here he stayed as a local businessman, father, and full time working Realtor with Watson Realty Corp. 

Says Don, "In any business, integrity and consistency will yield success. Do your best every time,  no exceptions. Our word is our only stock in trade. Pretty simple."

"It's true what they say: If you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life. I couldn't imagine doing anything else right now or doing it with another company. This team of Realtors is unquestionably the best in our state, and certainly the most fun to work with."
