Dustin Johnson, the No. 3 golfer in the world, this week paid $14 million for a waterfront home in Jupiter’s exclusive Admirals Cove, a real estate broker confirmed.

Johnson is the new owner of 389 Eagle Dr., a 10,134-square-foot house that has five bedrooms, eight bathrooms and 110 feet water frontage that can accommodate an 80-foot boat. The property also has a resort-style backyard, covered porch, summer kitchen, infinity pool and spa, fire pit and expanded dock.

Police, Firefighters and Elected Officials in Tequesta cut the ribbon to open a new fitness facility for first responders donated by Jupiter Realtor Rob Thomson.  The old station gym shared by Police and Firefighters in the Village of Tequesta was small, dated and lacking new equipment. Tequesta Police Chief Gustavo Medina said, “Our gym needed a major overhaul. It was not appealing or functional for First Responders to stay fit to serve our community.”

 Then Jupiter Realtor Rob Thomson became involved. When he saw the small room that was supposed to help keep First Responders in shape he was appalled. “If you tried to lift weights you might bump into a wall,” Thomson said and added,” the space also lacked any substantial equipment at all.”

A truck pulled up to New Macedonia Baptist Church on Saturday and delivered 500 colorful Easter baskets filled with toys and chocolate candy.

Jupiter realtor Rob Thomson wanted to share one of his fondest childhood memories with families who may be struggling this year. That’s what motivated him to donate the Easter baskets.

“So many kids go without Christmas, Easter. My kids are blessed and they don’t go without and you just want to help other people’s kids who may not be receiving it,” said Thomson.

The rest of the baskets will be delivered on Sunday.

Establishing a successful career in real estate is never easy. Even the real estate mogul Rob Thomson of Jupiter would attest to that fact.
