You call it Paradise....I call it Home
I am a Broker Associate and Sales Manager with Back Stage Realty . I specialize in residential and resort real estate sales.
I specialize in creating enhanced marketing of our area. This gives the customer a unique vision of life here before settling in this area. It is my goal that each customer feels a part of our community before the big move.
What led you to choose this profession?
I fell into real estate by chance. I was working as a Notary processing loan documents for home refinance loans. I thought if I had an understanding of the documents I could put the signers at ease. I should have taken a mortgage loan class, but God obviously led me to take a real estate class and I just fell in love with the profession.
What are a few of your special accomplishments?
You mean besides my two sons and their families????I have been ECAR FWB Realtor of the Year in 2007 and 2012. WCR Emerald Coast Chapter: Local Chapter President – 2010, Member of the Year – 2008, Entrepreneur of the Year – 2013. WCR Florida State Chapter: Entrepreneur of the Year – 2014 and District 8/9 Vice President – 2015, ECAR 2019 Property Manager of the Year.
What do you like best about Destin? What makes it unique?
Growing up here I certainly have seen the surrounding areas expand, which allows me to share enjoyable stories with my customers. I can remember Destin as the little fishing village that rolled up after Labor Day and opened back up by Memorial Day. Destin is a picture postcard come to life. I can’t tell you how many times I cross the Destin Bridge and the beauty takes my breath away! I have watched Destin grow from a little fishing village to a resort destination with numerous dining and shopping experiences.
One thing that hasn’t changed is the love of the water, great fishing, amazing seafood, breathtaking beaches, and southern hospitality. Whenever I travel and people discover I am from the Destin, people ALWAYS say how nice and friendly everyone is. I just laugh and explain how we love where we live and are happy to share. You call it Paradise...but I call this HOME!
I can’t get through the day without...
Checking my phone for email, texts, and social media....of course!!!
