Thomas Yates

I was born and raised in Van Nuys, California where upon graduation from Notre Dame High School, I joined the U. S. Navy and served for four years on board The USS Halsey (CG-23) out of San Diego.

After the military, I moved to Jacksonville in 1981 and was employed by the United States Postal Service as a Clerk at the General Mail Center, Jacksonville. In the 31 years that I spent with the Postal Service, I served in many public service positions including Postmaster positions in the following cities Whiteville, Tn., Interlachen, FL, Keystone Heights, FL and by the end of my career, I was serving as the Postmaster in Starke FL.

I have been married to my wife, Janie, for 32 years. She retired as the Information Systems Manager for the United States Postal Service, Gulf Coast District in 2013. We have two daughters, Kira who is a supervisor at the Child Support Enforcement Agency in Hawaii, and Candice who recently graduated from the University of South Florida with a Bachelor's degree in Accounting. We have owned residences in Jacksonville, Orange Park, and we currently reside in Fleming Island. I am intimately familiar with our area and all facets of the First Coast lifestyle.

My career has spanned a significant portion of the North Florida territory which has provided me with a vast knowledge of the many communities in the area. We are avid golfers and enjoy frequenting the many golf course options that our area offers. We also enjoy the First Coast's many water features, from lakes to pools to the fantastic beaches that we are so privileged to have.

I have been fortunate enough to join the most prestigious and respected real estate firm in Northeast Florida, Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty - Fleming Island, and I am looking forward to assisting you in fulfilling your dreams. I am proud to offer an unapparelled service and work ethic that will solidify nothing less than the "Professional Service that YOU desire and deserve."
