Emerald Coast of Florida Has Diverse Places to Live
My market on the Emerald Coast of Florida is diverse. So is my real estate practice. As a real estate broker in Destin Florida, my office is centrally located to cover it all, and that I do. From central Destin, it’s just 20 minutes to Fort Walton Beach, or 30 minutes straight shot up Highway 98 to Navarre. Or even closer, 12 minutes over the Mid-Bay Bridge to Bluewater Bay. As diverse as my area’s real estate is, we are cohesively known as the “Emerald Coast” of Florida. We are not a major metropolitan area, but we are bound together by one beautiful thing – the Gulf of Mexico. It’s no exaggeration to say we have sugar-white beaches from Pensacola to Seagrove Beach, and the waters truly are “emerald” green. In fact, Southern Living Magazine just voted Destin FL “Readers’ Choice for Best Beach”. The diverse people that make up the Emerald Coast range from the great air force personnel from Eglin Air Force Base and Hurlburt Field to the vacation rental owners and second home owners from all over the country and the world.
This week is an example of my wide-ranging real estate practice. Today I listed a short salinvestment home in Fort Walton Beach that needs much work, and might be priced under $100,000. I also viewed a new condo listing on Destin Harbor that is worth over $1,500,000. Tomorrow I will be listing a home in Freeport Florida for about $160,000 with a one-acre lot. Thursday I will be viewing a new listing in Valparaiso that was built two years ago. Friday I will be helping an air force pilot sell his home in Hammock Bay in the $200’s.
When my staff gets a call from a potential buyer, we don’t just expose them to our office location in Miramar Beach. We find out what they are looking for. The quietude of Navarre Beach? The old-world yet metro sophistication of Seaside, Grayton Beach and Seagrove Beach? The action and place-name of Sandestin Florida? Or perhaps the family fun on Okaloosa Island? We have it all, from surburbia to rural acreage to beach-front condos. And eventually, we might have you!
