Our Agents Go The Extra Mile For Their Clients!

Karen Phillips:

Simply, the most reliable, dependable and conscientious realtor you can find! Karen knows the market very well and always considers what is best for her clients!!

As a client, both as a buyer and seller, I always came away feeling like a winner on every deal. It is so greatly reassuring for me to have a realtor like Karen working on a deal for me!!!”

Amy Berry:

In December of 2015 we asked Amy Berry to help us sell our home in Regatta Bay and find a new home in Walton County. Amy told us exactly what needed to be done to our current home and as soon as those tasks were completed we put the home on the market. Within 5 days of being on the market we had two interested parties and a cash offer….we sold our home in 12 days for cash and for a better price than we expected!

As we began to look for homes we were very unsure of what we wanted and Amy was extremely patient with us. We initially made an offer for a home under new construction and were deep into the process when we decided this was not what we wanted. Instead of showing frustration or losing interest in working with us Amy helped us re-focus our search and directed us toward properties we would have never looked at on our own.

We then made an offer on a condo that we loved in Sandestin at One Beach Club…unfortunately the deal fell through at the last minute due to a late disclosure and we withdrew our offer and made another offer in the same building within 24 hours. Again Amy was patient and flexible throughout the entire process. We closed on the property in April, renovated it and moved in this past August. We love our condo and we know we got it for a very fair price.

I believe other realtors may have lost patience but Amy was flexible and patient and gave us great advice and direction the entire way! Thank you Amy!

Christine Thompson:

I switched to Christine after she represented the seller on a condo I purchased and had been very impressed by her responsiveness and professionalism. Since then, she has represented me countless times on both purchases and sales and each time I'm even more pleased with my decision to switch to her. Christine distinguishes herself from other agents by having an amazing awareness of the local market and is always on top of every aspect of the transaction. She has great business sense and doesn't hesitate to put in the effort needed to ensure I'm getting the best deal possible. Most of all, Christine just makes my life easier by always going the extra distance. I intend to stay with her as long as she is in the business.

Gary Bowman:

Gary Bowman is a great real estate professional.  I recommend Gary and will use him again. He has listed multiple properties for me and my wife.  His office is in the Grand Sandestin Florida which makes him very convenient to work with.

- Scott Fontenot

Gary Bowman:

Gary is a wealth of information on the Destin-30A real estate market. He is trustworthy and honest. I cannot imagine having a better agent and representative for searching, buying, or selling. These characteristics keep me turning to Gary for the best and most reliable information.

Amy Berry:

Over a long career filled with relocations I have worked with probably 15 different realtors. Without question, my experience with Amy Berry was the best.  She anticipated my questions before I asked, understood what I wanted probably better than I did, and showed me a home NOT on my short list that turned out to be the one I fell in love with. Throughout the process where I was working through all the inspections and loan application craziness from afar (in Minnesota), she was always available to me and I had absolute faith that she would represent me well. Which she did!  She educated me to the unique issues in Florida real estate, reminded me whenever I was nearing a deadline prior to closing and made the process just about as easy and stress-free as possible. And we all know how stressful buying a home can be!  I would highly recommend Amy to anyone looking for a home anywhere in the area (she is not limited to Sandestin properties, and she knows the greater Walton/Santa Rosa County area extremely well!)

Karen Phillips:

Karen was awesome to work with. She was super responsive and kept us up to speed every step of the way. She assisted us with everything from finding a mortgage broker, getting insurance, and even helped us find a general contractor to do some renovations on the condo. We worked through the entire process remotely from Atlanta and it could not have gone smoother. I highly recommend Karen and you will not be disappointed.

Christine Thompson:

My wife and I have bought and sold numerous homes over the years and consider ourselves knowledgeable when it comes to what to look for and what to ask. When we found Christine we knew we found someone we could easily work with. Christine is extremely knowledgeable with respect to the local real estate market and is able to answer all of your questions. More importantly, she listens to what you are looking for and only shows you properties that meet your requirements. We have purchased two homes in Sandestin and sold two, all with Christine. You would be hard pressed to find a better realtor in the area.

Gary Bowman:

Gary is without doubt the best realtor I have had the pleasure to work with.  He was very helpful as I was an out of town buyer and continued the high level of service after the sale.

I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a realtor in the Florida gulf area.

- Mike Alvarez

Lisa Collier: 

When I decided to purchase a home, it was easy to select Lisa Collier to represent me.  She was very helpful and professional.  For every small detail that came up, Lisa quickly had an answer and was always available for a phone call.    The home buying experience can be overwhelming and Lisa was very understanding and comforting through the process. Lisa’s personal attention, professionalism and communication is top notch and I will continue to recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.

Christine Thompson:

We met Christine in 2005 when we were looking to buy a condo and she was then an assistant to the Realtor we were working with but Christine was our main contact and she could not have been more accommodating and was patient with us since this was our first foray into a second home. She was able to deal with our needs as a family and my need to ensure I was getting the best possible price. So we purchased a two bedroom in the Village then inside of three years we were ready for a three bedroom with a little more space and peace and quiet. We contacted Christine and found she had made the transition to being a full time Realtor and worked with her exclusively to find a perfect place for our needs which we still own. Through the years we kept in touch as I was bound and determined to purchase a single family home in Sandestin. This process took a little longer than expected as my wife and I were not always on the same page on what we wanted but Christine hung in there with us and found us the perfect home which we purchased in June of 2015. Since then Christine has looked after our home for us as we do not live in Sandestin full time and let contractors and others access when needed. She is a full-fledged and full service realtor and has become a friend of the family. We trust Christine with the keys to our home and never have to think about it. She has provided us with recommendations for any services we have needed and every one of her recommendations were fantastic. She has never led us astray or given us bad advice and has always returned our calls and inquires immediately. If anyone is looking for a Realtor in the Sandestin or Emerald Coast area there is no one else I would recommend or use other than Christine Thompson. She is so much more than just a Realtor she is a trusted advisor and Family Friend.

Gary Bowman:

Gary helped us with the purchase of our condo in Miramar Beach.  He brings in-depth knowledge of real estate and of the local  market and area.  Gary is professional, honest and most of all, willing to go the extra mile for his clients. I recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in this  beautiful area.

- Deb Cordell

Amy Berry:

We were extremely pleased with Amy Berry from SRE. Amy has a very strong work ethic, is diligent and was willing to do whatever was necessary to meet our needs. Her expertise and experience helped to successfully sell our condo in a very short timeframe. (15 days)  It was certainly a pleasure to work with her.

Lisa Collier:

Lisa Collier of your agency was referred to us by a family member when we were contemplating selling our house in Santa Rosa Beach.  We called Lisa and she came to see us almost immediately, and was so helpful in advising us about the real estate market in this area, and what we could expect if we decided to place the house on the market.  After much thought and contemplation, we decided to sell the house, and because she had been such a help in the early stages, we didn't even consider calling any other agents.  And, did we ever make the right decision!!!  Because of her efforts, we received a contract from the second person that who saw the house, and for nearly the full asking price, and the close went down without a hitch.   How many ways can we say, "Lisa is the best!!!!"  She never once let us down at any stage in the process.  My wife and I have sold many houses over the years, and never have we worked with anyone as professional, accommodating, and pleasant as Lisa.  She is a rare gem, and you are so fortunate to have her in your agency.  If we every decide to buy another home in that area, we will certainly contact Lisa.  Thank you so much.
