JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A Jacksonville woman is about to turn 90- years-old and she is still working full time as a Realtor.
Affectionately known as Lady Jane by her friends and family, Jane Mercer is a realtor at Watson Realty in Mandarin. She's been showing homes around Jacksonville for 23 years.
"I love what I do," she said.
This great grandmother has been a widower twice and survived stage 4 cancer. "I've had valleys, but I've had great mountains in my life," said Mercer.
Right now, she's on top as one of the most sought after Watson realtors.
"How often do you get a Jane Mercer to come into your front door?" asked Bill Watson, chairman of the board for Watson Realty.
On several occasions, he said, Mercer has given customers in a financial bind money to pay for home repairs and other needs.
"Jane is just so caring and so special and just goes out of her way," said Watson.
Mercer said she can't help but assist people in need; it is how her parents raised her. "It has brought me great joy. I think if one can, then you should share," said Mercer.
Mercer 90th birthday is Friday.
