Golden Bear Realty Announces New Name and Brand: NV Realty Group


Global Name in Destination Real Estate Announces a Rebrand after 15-year Anniversary

PALM BEACH, FL - One of the most recognized, revered and respected names in the golf and real estate industries, Golden Bear Realty firm, announced today that it will now be known as NV Realty Group. The name represents the company’s two founders: Michael Nicklaus and Todd Vance; who started the company in 2003. Michael, the youngest son of golf icon Jack Nicklaus, and his business partner and brother-in-law, Todd Vance, opened the company 15 years ago with only four agents. Since then, the company has seen tremendous growth and is now operating with over 180 agents representing an average of 293% growth year-over-year.

2018 marks their 15-year anniversary, which spurred a lot of reflection from its founders as they recognized the need for the brand to evolve. “We have big plans to grow and envision a brand that goes well beyond real estate. One that will be viewed as a luxury lifestyle brand.” Nicklaus states. “My father created the Golden Bear brand and it has allowed us to build a solid foundation for this business. But, we are bigger than just one person and we want our name and company to reflect that.”

The same familial qualities of excellence and integrity remain at the core, and the stage is now set for new and exciting business ventures. “We are thrilled about the name change and how it fits with our goals to create a larger lifestyle brand,” says Vance. “While our name may be changing, our commitment to the highest quality service remains the same.”

One of the founding pillars of the company has always been its dedication to impacting the local community. Recently, NV Realty Group presented a $30,000 check to the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation to carry on the legacy of the beloved Golden Bear himself, Jack Nicklaus. The company will continue to honor this commitment to children’s charities by pledging to contribute a portion of every real estate transaction throughout the year. This annual donation will directly support the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital - a world leader in pediatric care.

With the blessing and support of Jack and Barbara Nicklaus, NV Realty Group aims to launch offices in more cities and continue to pursue additional opportunities that fit within their lifestyle brand.

“We owe a great deal to Jack & Barbara Nicklaus and their commitment to family, value and integrity,” said Vance. “Their values set the foundation for our company and we aim to continue that legacy through NV Realty Group as we expand into new markets and opportunities.”
