About The Bayer Group

Let the Bayer Group Guide You Home

The Bayer Group, based in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, is a professional real estate group that provides expert counsel to home buyers and sellers in northeast Florida. Led by Carole Bayer and her son John, who are both Realtors® and broker associates, The Bayer Group is renowned for their exceptional service and expertise. With a strong focus on building relationships, The Bayer Group has established a business built on referrals. Their loyal customer base consistently turns to them for all their real estate needs and enthusiastically recommends them to family, friends, and associates.

Carole Bayer's impressive credentials include being a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist awarded by the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing. She is also a RESA Certified Real Estate Staging Advocate and holds the prestigious Graduate, REALTOR® Institute designation from the National Association of REALTORS'®. Additionally, Carole has completed the Peak Producer program and is a graduate of Buffini and Company, North America's leading real estate training organization.

Real estate is in John Bayer's blood. A 3rd generation Realtor®, and a broker associate, John is proud to carry on the family tradition. His grandfather, Thomas, was a respected real estate executive and homebuilder in the St. Louis area, while other relatives were appraisers, mortgage lenders, Realtors® and investors. Today, John builds on that legacy, working alongside his mother, Carole, in The Bayer Group. Having lived in northeast Florida for more than a decade, including Ponte Vedra Beach, John is a valuable resource for anyone hoping to relocate to the area. An avid boater, he's especially familiar with the area's popular boating communities, waterways, launches...and prime fishing spots. He's also an experienced negotiator, determined to help both home buyers and sellers achieve the best possible outcomes on their real estate transactions. When he's not busy helping customers buy and sell property, John follows his passion for art. He's known in the Ponte Vedra Beach community for his Jackson Pollock-inspired paintings. And friends will tell you he's a pretty good pool player, as well. 

The Bayer Group strives for excellence in its services but also actively participates in giving back to the community. The group serves as members and leaders in various community organizations, including Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty's Beaches CBV Cares Realty Group and Our Lady Star of the Sea's Catholic Council of Women. They are committed to making a positive impact by volunteering at Mission House to serve the homeless in the Beaches area. Carole is also actively involved as a Rotarian and a member of The Rotary Satellite Group of Oceanside, while John volunteers for the Special Olympics Surf Team in Duval County and at the Ponte Vedra Cultural Center in St. Johns County.

Carole Bayer was pleasant to work with, composed in difficult situations, and knowledgeable

When selling or buying, these qualities make the difficult process of selling a home less complicated. As a single woman, I was extremely comfortable with all of our transactions, contracts, preparing the home for viewing, the schedule for viewings and being available for the unexpected. There were a few challenges that had to be overcome with my property; yet we handled it as a team.


Highly recommend this excellent team!

We were highly impressed with our home buying experience with Carole and John. Since we were relocating from Ohio, we greatly appreciated the expertise and guidance Carole provided. Every step of the process felt smooth, aided by the team's excellent communication and personal touch. She took the time to show us homes in multiple neighborhoods to ensure we landed in the area that best suited our family. We visited for just a few days where we looked at many homes in person, but ultimately selected our home after a virtual showing conducted once we were back in Ohio. We were so fortunate to have such wonderful advocates in Carole and John.


We would love to hear from you.
