About our staff


Larissa Ricketts-Owens, Broker and Owner of Modern Realty of Putnam Inc. and Ricketts Plaza located at 811 State Road 20 in Interlachen.  

I moved to Interlachen Florida in 1989 from North Alabama.  I have been working as a Realtor here since 1991.  I currently live in Saint Johns County, so I cover a lot of ground and I can sell in any area.  I opened Modern Realty of Putnam in 2012 because after years of working for other brokers I wanted to be able to tailor more to the needs of each individual customer.  My goal is to try to make each transaction as easy as possible because buying and selling can be very stressful.  I am able to tailor each listing agreement to each individual property and our fee's and listing terms are always negotiable.  

Victor (Vic) Owens is the newest member with Modern Realty and has hit the ground running since becoming a licensed Realtor in March 2019.  He is a retired Navy Chief that served in both Gulf Wars, having served for over 23 years and understands the needs of veterans and family members alike. He also holds a bachelors degree and served five years working in the Clay County School District.  In addition, he is our drone aerial photographer for all of our property owners.  His vast experiences and educational achievements are a warm welcome to Modern Realty.    

Tom "Tommy" King has been with Modern Realty of Putnam since we began.  He has spent most of his life in Palatka and knows the area as well as anyone could.  For many years he specialized in vacant land and land development.  His knowledge of the area is a great benefit to our office and our customers.

Juanita "Nita" Hastings joined our office this year.  She had been working as rental property manger for another company but wanted to branch out into sales.  She brings a good knowledge of property management along with her desire to work with buyers and sellers to make their homeownership dreams come true.  She is also a professional photographer so she can help frame your home in the best possible light to buyers.  

Of course we can't leave out Maureen Mitchell, our office adminstrator.  She is the glue that helps hold us all together.  She is in charge of keeping us on our toes and making sure our customers get the attention they deserve.  If you call our office she is usually your first point of contact.  She will help to direct you to licensed agents that can help you with all of your real estate needs.  

We all love Putnam County!  We want to show you the best it has to offer.  From Rodman Reservoir to the St. Johns River and all the beautiful towns surrounding them.

 Let us share our knowledge of the area while finding you the perfect property!

We are members of Northeast Florida Association of Realtors and the MLS.

We advertise our listings on over 75 websites including Trulia, Zillow and homes.com.

We NEVER charge extra fees like "transaction fees" that some companies do.

We have flexible listing terms and competitive commission rates.

We have great knowledge on the process of buying foreclosed or distressed properties.

We have the latest technology in our new office to serve buyers and sellers.  Our newest technology is providing complimentary drone aerial photography and video imaging.  We believe that buyers and sellers need the best information available in making major decisions in real estate transactions and drone services plays an integral part in that process. 

Modern Realty of Putnam services all of Putnam County Florida as well as the surrounding areas.  If we can't find it here we can refer you to an agent that would serve you in whatever area of the USA you should choose.

Our goal is to help buyers and sellers deal with today's changing market.  This is not the real estate market of  5 years ago, or even a month ago.  The market changes daily and you have to pay attention to pricing and demand.  We can provide a Free Market Analysis of your property to show you what it would bring in the current market conditions.
